CLIA UK & Ireland has announced that Lifts To has become a long-term associate partner.
Lifts To specialises in passenger transfers from airports or city centres on a range of holidays, including to major ports across Europe.
The company operates in more than 20 countries, covering cruise hubs such as France, Spain, Italy and Greece.
The agreement will “enhance Lifts To’s brand awareness, bringing them into CLIA’s wider community of cruise lines, travel agents and stakeholders”, according to the association.
Lifts To will also be a sponsor of the association’s Cruise Forum and Winter Ball in December, as well as the CLIA Conference Ireland in November, and the River Cruise Residential in September.
Growing the CLIA family
CLIA UK & Ireland MD Andy Harmer said: “We’re very excited to welcome Lifts To into the CLIA family.
“We’re looking forward to supporting them as they build relationships across the travel trade and further enhance their profile with cruise stakeholders.”
Lifts To head of sales Kelvin Dunk added: “I’m really excited to be working closely with CLIA to build new and closer relations with the cruise holiday retailers and will be the ‘go to’ solution for all their transfer needs.
“Here at Lifts To we draw on our 20 years’ experience in the transfer market, and provide agents with high quality and seamless transfers, delivering optimum post and pre travel service levels for customers.”
CLIA also recently confirmed that this year’s Cruise Week will take place from 16-25 September, with a ‘get on board’ theme.
The event will feature a number of trade-friendly cruise initiatives to help travel agents.
