Advanced XML technology is allowing airlines to integrate car rental ancillary product into their flight bookings systems, an online travel expert has claimed.Arthur de Perthuis, head of online travel sales at EMEA – Hertz Europe, told Eye For Travel that savvy airlines were now able to totally outsource their car rental deals, with low cost airline leading the charge.He told the site: “With the absence of the loyalty programme, they [low budget airlines] compensate by investing in new revenue streams which were quicker to implement than create a traveller database. Until an airline embraces XML technology, they will not benefit from the true additional ancillary revenue opportunity. Being able to dynamically offer real-time availability is key to maximising car rental penetration.”He added that major Hertz flag carrying partners such as Air France are also developing innovative services for passengers and taking advantage of the new era of airline booking and car rental collaboration.Nevertheless, Mr De Perthuis noted that carrier strategy is not as focussed on ancillary revenue channels as on the retention of high yield leisure and business travellers.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

Whilst we get very excited about the special days of his fellow saints, George’s big day (April 23rd) doesn’t get much of a look in.But why? All St Patrick did was chase a few snakes away from Ireland and we didn’t see St David or St Andrew slaying any dragons.To right this wrong, Skyscanner introduces a selection of pockets of Englishness where you can celebrate Saint George’s Day around the world.English Tea House and Restaurant, Sandakan, Borneo, Malaysia A trip back to colonial times, The English Tea House is a “meticulously renovated colonial house” allowing spectacular views of the town and Sandakan Bay. Guests can nibble on scones with clotted cream, fish and chips, and shepherd’s pie. For the true English experience, grab a mallet and play croquet on the manicured lawn. Spiffing stuff!

They even microbrew their own beer with some great names including: ‘Parislytic’, ‘Dark de Triomphe’ and ‘Inseine’. They also serve a variety of English meals and snacks, making them a popular place for both English expats and foreign tourists.

In the city of Paju, once you pass through the ‘immigration’ checkpoint, you’ll find a place where employees are only allowed to speak English, fairytales are broadcast over loud speakers, and faux-castles, houses and theatres give the place a fake European flavour.

Holidays Pub is the oldest “real English” pub in the city and a beloved haunt of beer connoisseurs and homesick expats who come to drink English ales and sing ‘God Save the Queen’.
