Thistle DMC gets ready for tourism boom

By Sinead Tuesday, 8th March 2011 | 0 comments
Leading Irish company Eirebus has launched a new business in Edinburgh as a result of increasing demand from international tourists who want to travel to Scotland. The new venture, Thistle DMC, is aiming to bring 25,000 extra leisure and business tourists to Scotland in the next few years and a new office has been opened in Edinburgh in line with the launch.   The Eirebus Group, which carried 26,000 visitors on tours of Ireland last year alone and has been in operation for 40 years, also owns sister companies Edinburgh Coach Lines and Gray Line (Scotland) – already leading operators in the Scottish tour market.  The business has seen an upturn in requests for travel to Scotland through its existing international client base. With that in mind, Thistle DMC will be targeting countries across Europe and internationally with the aim of bringing lucrative business into Scotland. Speaking about the new venture, Managing Director of Eirebus, Paddy Kavanagh, comments: “Scotland is a hugely popular destination and in opening Thistle DMC we are tapping into the market for visitors who simply cannot get enough of what the country has to offer.  We are aiming to emulate the success of our Irish business in Scotland and already have business underway from our new operation.” Thistle DMC provides tour and travel services within Scotland for the incentive, leisure and business tourism markets and is headed by Maite Hernandez, who brings extensive travel industry expertise to the company.  The business operates in association with its sister companies, Edinburgh Coach Lines and Gray Line (Scotland) and has an existing fleet of 30 coaches on hand to support business operations.
Welcome to Thistle DMC!  We are a destination, conference and event management company offering tailor-made travel services in Scotland. We are associates of Edinburgh Coach Lines, one of Scotland’s most reputable coach operators and Gray Line (Scotland), a globally recognised tour company. Thistle DMC is owned by the Eirebus Group, one of Ireland’s most successful coach and tour operators, celebrating 40 years of business in 2011. The primary services that we offer are Incentive Travel, Conference Travel and Leisure Groups/FIT. Our aim is to provide our travel partners with quality, bespoke itineraries and programmes for business and leisure groups and we are passionate about Scotland, aiming to bring together the best that this country has to offer in our innovative itineraries.  Our team has extensive experience in creating and delivering bespoke programmes to clients all over the UK, Ireland and internationally and, through Thistle DMC, we look forward to building many new relationships in 2011! Scotland has so much to offer as a leisure and business destination, so it’s exciting for us to bring this wonderful country to life in our programmes.  We have lots planned for 2011, so check back with us often for any new developments! We’re looking forward to working with you and would be delighted to quote for your next incentive, conference or tour group in Scotland.  To get in touch with us for a quote, or just a chat about what we do, simply call +44 (0) 131 555 0034 or email info@thistledmc.com.
