Globus Family Guarantees Oberammergau Pricing, Confirms Hotel
Bruce Parkinson, Open Jaw
The Globus family of brands has announced that it is guaranteeing the pricing, in Canadian dollars, of all of its Oberammergau Passion Play 2020 tours – but only when clients are booked by 5JUN this year.
At the same time, the company has announced that it will accommodate clients in the Hotel Boeld which is located in the heart of the village and just steps from Oberammergau’s main street.
“Guaranteed pricing for a tour taking place two years away is almost unheard of and gives clients enormous peace of mind,” says Kim Clarke, director of sales.
“This is a huge selling feature for agents and we urge them to contact their Oberammergau prospects before the June 5 deadline with the great news.”
Clarke says that the once-a-decade Passion Play is so popular that travellers often have to stay quite far outside the village, so the guarantee of a centrally located hotel is a strong incentive for clients to commit now.
Three Globus family companies – Globus and Cosmos with escorted tours and Avalon Waterways river cruises – are offering Oberammergau packages. The Passion Play will run from May through October 2020.
