At Aegean

e appreciate that making holiday arrangements or booking hotels using the Internet is a new experience for many people, often approached with an understandable amount of trepidation and caution. Adverse media reports about internet fraud coupled with dealing with a company based in a foreign country, understandably makes some people reluctant to proceed beyond just obtaining information.

The nature of our business requires an often lengthy communication process to finalize arrangements. In our experience, this quickly establishes a relationship of trust with our prospective clients. During the past four years Aegean Tour Travel has become one of Turkeys leading Internet based travel agencies, offering a wide range of tourism opportunities anywhere in Turkey. Providing not just up to date information via an established network of internationally hosted websites, but fast response and follow up to inquiries. This, in conjunction with membership of TURSAB, the Government sponsored Association of Turkish Travel Agencies, provides a platform for mutual trust, upon which our reputation is based.
