Riding out the storm in Benidorm as the area launches a new initiative where visitors can spend seven nights in a hotel with all food included … despite where you decide to eat.
There has been a sharp decline in visitors to Benidorm, as there has been across the entire tourist sector, and the failing economy sourly needs a boost.
The new scheme, which will be implemented in mid-October, will see visitors and tourists given a range of choices for where to stay and where to eat in an unprecedented deal.
Trade Unions in the area, ABRECA and COBRECA, which both represent Benidorm’s bars and restaurants, have devised a formula that they hope will shore up the faltering sector during the winter months.
Representative of the unions stated, “This project is the result of the essential synergy between all the business sectors of the city and it will be a pioneer in Europe offering visitors to enjoy all the gastronomic offer of our city.”
“The tourist will have a complete experience of Benidorm, being able to stay in apartments of Real Estate Rosemberg or Apartments Nicaragua and have breakfast, lunch and dinner in any bar, restaurant and cafeteria member of Abreca and Cobreca and adhered to this project.”
Together with two holiday letting firms, they will, from October 14 onwards, be participating in an accommodation-plus-meals deal that ABRECA’s Alex Fratini described as a first for Europe.
The overall charge includes breakfast and either lunch or dinner in any bar, restaurant or cafeteria that belongs to ABRECA or COBRECA.
Furthermore, as they have pointed out, users will soon be able to take advantage of the Valencian Community’s discount scheme that commences on October 20.
The Bono Viatge Comunitat Valenciana has been introduced to serve the double purpose of providing thousands of Valencian Community residents with discounts on accommodation throughout the region, while helping the tourist industry to survive the economic crisis created by the coronavirus pandemic.
The scheme, available to all Valencian Community residents registered on a municipal Padron in one of its three provinces, provides a 70 per cent discount of the cost of holidaying in the region, up to a maximum of €600.
