Olympic Games 2004 Update

April 2002




With the advent of the Olympic Games of August 2004 organized in Athens and the city already beautifying itself, most of the hotels are receiving a significant face-lift.



Both the perennial Grande Bretagne hotel and the Athens Hilton have closed down last November to re-open in the spring of 2003 in their new plush. These two hotels are actually being reconstructed and totally remodeled. The Ledra Marriott and the Electra Palace hotels are building extensions to their grounds. The Grand Resort Lagonissi (a 40 minutes drive from downtown Athens) will re-open mid April with newly built deluxe waterfront bungalows each with a private pool. The newly re-built 5-star Apollon Palace in Kavouri (a 20 minutes drive from downtown Athens) will shortly inaugurate a thallaso therapy section, heralded to be the most modern in the world.

New luxury cruise ships are being introduced, such as the Olympia Voyager, the Olympia Explorer and the European Vision offering exciting itineraries in the Aegean and Adriatic Seas.

Several new resort hotels of incentive quality sprout like mushrooms on several Greek islands - including Rhodes, Corfu, Crete, Myconos and Santorini - but also on the mainland.

It is of importance to underline that due to Conceptours\' purchasing power with hotels and cruises, we can usually provide our Principals with more attractive rates than competitors may obtain. By special agreement with Greece\'s major hotels and cruises, Conceptours is quoted to offer the most attractive rates and fares. Furthermore, Conceptours does NOT mark-up the negotiated net rates/fares obtained from hotels and cruises, but passes these very same net rates on to our Principals. The latter scheme is a win-win formula for all concerned that was conceived by Conceptours several years ago. However, if by the end of the calendar year Conceptours attains a certain quota with these hotels and cruise lines, they pay us a nominal \"protection fee\" (about $ 3 pp/per day) from their advertising budget. As a consequence of this special formula, Conceptours is in a position to obtain the most attractive hotel and cruise net prices for preferred Principals thus giving a strong competitive edge against other players on the market.
