UHPA presented the travel.hr website. Offer of all travel agencies for the first time in one place

first_imgAt the presentation, the blogger and the world traveler shared their experience Ivan Bengeri who shared with the audience his experiences from numerous trips. “I decided to make my boyhood dream come true and travel the world. Each country is special in its own way, you just need to travel with your eyes open, without prejudices and you will hardly come across one that will not delight you. It was this view and the desire to offer my followers that prompted me to start my own agencySaid Bengeri. There will be no direct sales (on-click) on the site, but only the promotion of tourist engagements, and additional information about each program can be obtained directly from the travel agency, to which the links will lead. A smart and logical move, but also a big step forward for UHPA However, this is not an informative UHPA website as has been the case so far, in the b2b segment and communication with members, but the new UHPA portal will bring together the offers of all travel agencies and other partners for the first time in one place and present them market.  According to official statistics, there has been a steady increase in the number of passengers traveling through travel agencies. These are indicators that confirm the importance of travel agencies despite the myriad opportunities that allow today’s travelers a direct online connection to destinations. “Domestic travelers trust travel agencies, and the benefits of traveling with travel agencies are truly numerous. Today’s travel agencies are much more than package providers – they create travel experiences, offer an individual approach, recommendations and allow travelers to get to know the destination and sights in the best possible way or simply relax with the assurance that one of the agency’s representatives is always at available. It is for this reason that we believe that all travelers, travel enthusiasts and those who are just about to become happy to use the travel.hr website. ”explained Tomislav Fain. The portal offers new added value for its members, and thus enters the market of tourist offer directly to customers, without commission to any of the various booking portals or platforms.  The new website was created based on the recognized need to create a central place to offer travel abroad, intended for the domestic market – experienced and potential travelers, tourism professionals, adventurers, bloggers, all travel enthusiasts and those who are about to become. In addition to current travel, the site offers tips for travelers, presentation of destinations, attractive articles, travelogues and other interesting things.  As we have already announced, the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies (UHPA) presented a new website in Zagreb today putovanja.hr which combines the offer of travel agencies – members of the association that deals with the organization of travel abroad (ie. outgoing package and / or excursion package).  “The site was created as a logical sequence of work on the promotion of our members, Croatian tourism and tourism in general. Although Croatia is a receptive destination and many agencies are focused on the organized arrival of foreign tourists in our country and Croats like to travel outside Croatia, we, in addition to promoting foreign programs of our agencies, wanted to provide domestic travelers with useful information, travel tips and current offer.” he pointed out Tomislav Fain. last_img read more

Newcastle in profit again

first_img The club made a profit after tax in 2012/13 of £9.9million – up from £1.4million in 2011/12 – even though spending on player transfers increased. Turnover also rose by £2.4million to £95.9million with commercial revenue rising 24.2 per cent to £17.1million, while Newcastle’s total wage bill fell from £64.1million to £61.7million and the wage-to-turnover ratio has dropped to 64 per cent below the Premier League’s 70 per cent average. Newcastle have made a profit for the third year in a row as the club cut spending on player wages and increased their commercial income. The club’s debt remains the same in the form of a £129million interest-free loan from owner Mike Ashley. A statement from the club’s board said they were striving to comply with UEFA’s financial fair play (FFP) rules and the Premier League’s new spending controls. The statement said: “As supporters will be aware, finances are a significant issue for all football clubs given the introduction of financial fair play into the Premier League in addition to UEFA’s regulations. “Complying with FFP continues to be a key influence on strategy and something we have been working hard at over a number of years. “Everyone at this club wants to finish as high up the Barclays Premier League table as they possibly can. If the club can sustain itself as a ‘top 10’ team year-on-year with a stable structure and the right finances, it gives itself every chance of pushing even further. “The process requires patience but we remain absolutely committed to growing the club in a responsible and sustainable way.” Newcastle purchased six senior players in the 2012/13 financial year – all in January 2013 – at a cost of £28.7million, partially recouped by £11.1million from the sale of Demba Ba, Leon Best and Fraser Forster. Matchday turnover rose by 15.9 per cent to £27.8million, but the cub’s income from TV money dropped by eight per cent to £51million, reflecting the impact of their 16th-placed finish in the Premier League last season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cardinal Seán Brady has offered to resign as Primate of All Ireland

first_imgIn his statement today, Brady said: “I look forward to the day when my resignation will be accepted and when Archbishop Eamon will take over as Archbishop, a position for which, I believe, he is excellently prepared.”He added that Martin “has been warmly welcomed into the diocese”.“He has worked tirelessly in getting to know its priests, religious and lay faithful, as well as by becoming involved in every aspect of the life of the Church in Armagh and beyond,” Brady said.Read: Monsignor Eamon Martin appointed Coadjutor to Cardinal BradyBrendan Boland: My healing won’t begin until Brady resigns CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY has confirmed he has offered his resignation as Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland to Pope Francis.In a statement issued this morning, Brady confirmed he offered his resignation to the Pontiff last month in accordance with the requirement under Canon Law that he retire at the age of 75 which he will turn tomorrow.The statement confirms reports earlier this week that Brady had written to the head of the Catholic Church indicating he would step down.It’s thought the Pope will accept Brady’s resignation despite often deciding to allow diocesan bishops to continue in their roles beyond the age of 75.Brady has been the subject of controversy in recent years after the BBC alleged that he failed to protect children from the abuse of paedophile priest Father Brendan Smyth.Two years ago the BBC reported that Brady had been given the names and addresses of boys being abused, but that he did not ensure their safety after acting as a notary during a 1975 inquiry carried out by the Catholic Church.Brady has since made a public apology to the victims. One of the victims of the abuse said that while he welcomed this apology his healing would not begin until Brady stepped down.Whenever he does step down Brady will be succeeded by Archbishop Eamon Martin who was appointed coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh in April 2013 and will become the Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland.last_img read more
