ETC partners with global coach touring provider Touropa


Evolution Travel Collective (ETC), a B2B tourism representation company, has announced a new strategic partnership with global coach touring provider Touropa.

Touropa is a collaboration between Sun Island Tours, Australia’s largest niche wholesaler for the Mediterranean, and Europamundo Vacations, the largest coach tour company in the world.

This unique product aims to offer Australian travel agents’ seamless access to one of the largest ranges of coach tours, enhancing travel options for customers seeking cost-effective touring options, particularly through Europe.

Touropa brings unique selling points that set them apart from other larger coach touring companies. Their state-of-the-art booking platform provides easy and instant confirmation, making the planning of trips seamless and stress-free for travel agents and their clients.

Additionally, Touropa's innovative approach to tour options, including Rotative and Sector-based journey options, offers unparalleled flexibility to travellers.

A standout feature of Touropa's offerings is their Guaranteed Departures policy. Tours are guaranteed to depart with as few as two passengers, ensuring that travellers' plans remain firm and reliable, regardless of group size. This guarantee underscores Touropa's commitment to customer satisfaction and travel certainty.

Touropa’s General Manager John Polyviou expressed enthusiasm for the partnership. “We see ETC as an ideal partner due to their extensive agency network connections and their proven history of working with a wide range of tour operators.”

Reflecting on the partnership, Ingrid Berthelsen, MD and joint Co-Founder of ETC, emphasised that “There is an established market in Australia for customers who wish to explore multiple cities in Europe in a cost-effective manner, and ETC know that Touropa’s flexible style of touring will appeal to those travellers.”

Touropa can be booked by calling the reservations team on 02 9281 4537 from Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm AEST.

Online bookings can be made via https://www.touropa.com.au/en with rates available to book through to March 2025.

Agents will need to be registered in the system, and this can be done after the quote or booking is made online by emailing [email protected] with your agency details.
