25 May 2012: Join us on facebook

You may not have succeeded in grabbing a share of facebook when it was floated a few days ago but now at least you can share in the new Travel à la carte facebook page. Timed to coincide with the launch of our new automated website, this facebook page will be a major addition to the ways in which we keep in touch and communicate with everyone. Becoming our friend on facebook will enable you to be first to learn of our best deals and will give you access to all the photos of your favourite Greek islands.

The idea behind the page is to publish photographs of Paxos, Kefalonia and our other Greek islands, including the photographs people send us after their holidays. We will also list and keep people updated with any Late Availability and Special Offers we have, as well as providing all the latest news from Paxos, Kefalonia and our other islands.

To join us on facebook, follow this link or click on the facebook logo in the top right-hand corner of our new website. Once on the page, to be kept informed of our latest postings click on Like…. (if you don’t use facebook you will have to register first but it is free of charge).

25 May 2012: Announcing the new Travel à la carte website.

It is well known that travel is one of the most popular fields of human interest and activity on the internet. We at Travel à la carte caught on to the internet phenomenon quite early, launching our first website in 1998 and switching over from printed brochures to the web alternative in 2004. Ever since then, our web presence has been at the heart of our marketing strategy.

The internet is a fast-moving medium and all companies but especially those in travel need to move with it. Our original website was attractive to look at and served its purpose well. But what it lacked was one or two key functions, which software development was rapidly bringing within the reach of smaller independent businesses. These were the ability to search availability and to book online.

So I am delighted to let you know that our new website, which incorporates both these functions, is now live. On it you can search by destination and date, review all our special offers and book the property of your choice online. The availability of all our accommodation is updated instantaneously in real time, so that you can book and make a payment for the property of your choice at any time of day or night. A confirmation of your reservation is sent to you automatically and without delay once you have booked. Welcome to the new online world of the 21st century!

More automation, however, does not mean any less personal a service to our customers. In fact, we expect the opposite. With many more of the “back office” operations automated, our dedicated and experienced staff will have more time to devote to the more detailed and complex queries which the discerning traveller wants answering. So we hope you will find that there is an all-round improvement in our service. (And for our Paxos clients, it should certainly mean you’ll be seeing a bit more of Chris, who has been hidden from sight for several weeks, testing and retesting the new www.travelalacarte.co.uk.)

So please visit the new Travel à la carte website when you have a moment and try it out. A Greek holiday has never been easier to book!

23 Feb 2012: Travel à la carte offers a full welcome service for all its guests on the Greek islands.

The service varies from island to island.

For our clients staying on Paxos, the service includes being met by our staff on arrival at Corfu airport, a taxi or taxis from the airport to the port, seats booked and tickets provided in advance for the hydrofoil crossing to Paxos, being met by our local staff on arrival on Paxos and a prearranged taxi on Paxos for onward transfer to the accommodation. On the return, there are prebooked taxis from the villa to the port, prepurchased seats on the hydrofoil and a taxi from the port in Corfu to the airport.

For our Kefalonia clients, all of whom pick up a hire car on arrival, the service includes meet and greet at Argostoli airport on arrival and departure.

On Symi, the service is similar to that offered for Paxos, and includes all taxi transfers between Rhodes airport and the port, the ferry crossings to Symi and back, and luggage transfers between the harbour and your accommodation on Symi.

The cost of the welcome service varies with the size of the party and the age of its members. As a guide, for a party of four the charge will be £75 per person and £60 per child of ten and under. A couple travelling together should expect to pay around £85 each. Single travellers should expect to pay more, because of single occupancy of taxis, while sea transfers by private water taxi carry supplements in accordance with the party size, with the smaller the party, the higher the supplement. There is no charge for the meet & greet service on Kefalonia.

A starter pack of basic provisions is included in the cost of the meet and greet service on all our islands.
