What are the ways to lower prices for the Corsica destination?

This Wednesday, May 22, 2024, in the large room of the consular hotel in Bastia, disagreements arose. There have been misunderstandings between tourism professionals and elected officials who do not always share the same understanding of tourism in Corsica. Some nevertheless agreed: the challenge of this day of consultation is to “find solutions” by working together.

If the intentions are good, on paper, it is sometimes more difficult to put them into form.

Finding synergies, identifying ways to pool to optimize transport in Corsica and lower their price, everything always revolves around cost.

So with the shipping and airline companies present, several avenues were discussed. Sometimes, the systems seem well established, other times still fragile in the absence of certainty as to their legal feasibility and relatively vague conditions of attribution. This shows that the project is vast.

* But from the outset, to fight against the para-hotel industry, a merchant accommodation and maritime transport package is advanced with the possibility of implementing a preferential rate for travelers on a quota basis.

* On the air side, to lower prices and extend the season, a “flow purchase” system in around ten European destinations which would secure the companies was detailed by Gilles Simeoni. It will soon be presented to the Corsican Assembly, the Executive hopes to see it come into force in 2025.

* The Corsica tourism agency has established a partnership with Air Corsica to allow tourists to benefit from a 30% cheaper plane ticket price this summer on tickets that are part of a “pack” . A system which is significantly similar to that proposed by socio-professionals.
