The Extrapolitan Sightseeing Alliance is Expanding in Budapest and Split

March 21, 2018

The Extrapolitan alliance of Hop-on Hop-off sightseeing tours is welcoming two new key tourist destinations in its network: Budapest and Split.

Ronan Bois, Director of the Sightseeing business declared: “Thanks to these new partnerships Extrapolitan is consolidating its leading position in Europe. We are proud of the growth of our sightseeing network and target a shared commercial success for our partners and ourselves”.

In Budapest, Extrapolitan will promote the tours of Budatours operating under the brand City Tour. City Tour provides 5 hop-on hop-off routes with 53 stops for the visitors to discover the top attractions of the Hungarian capital city at their own pace. András Hertzka, shareholder at Budatours declared: “Partnering with an international player like Extrapolitan will give us access to new sales channels and differentiate us from the local competition. Thanks to Extrapolitan, we will be able to develop our technical background and our bus fleet more efficiently.”

In Split, Extrapolitan partners with Apodos Travel Agency. Apodos offers a Hop-on Hop-off tour, a panoramic tour and two complimentary walking tours (Split and Trogir) under the brand Split Vision City Tour. Tourism in Croatia was up 14% in 2017 and as one of the top Mediterranean cruise destinations, Split is more and more attractive to international visitors. Luka Pitalo, CEO at Apodos Travel Agency said: “Working with Extrapolitan is a great opportunity for Apodos Travel Agency to quickly grow on international markets. Becoming part of an alliance is also a plus as we will benefit from the best practices of the network.”

Extrapolitan is now present in 17 cities and offers tours, on top of Budapest and Split, in Paris, London, Hong Kong, Nice, Marseille, Stockholm, Tallinn, Riga, Copenhagen, Berlin, Athens, Helsinki, Bath, Windsor and Cardiff.
