El Corte Inglés - Corporate Information

Viajes El Corte Inglés (Travel Agency)

Leader in the travel sector

Designed from the outset as a division to provide an internal service to the Group, El Corte Inglés Travel (Viajes El Corte Inglés) has evolved to become a subsidiary with a presence in many different places around the world and the second company from the Group in terms of turnover.  
Travel Agency.El Corte Inglés Travel, a subsidiary of the El Corte Inglés group , was established in Madrid in November 1969, receiving the required ministerial authorisation on 22 December that same year. Although its initial mission was to cover the needs of the organisation itself, the growing success of its commercial management, together with a desire to offer its services to El Corte Inglés customers, led to the travel agencies being established in all the Group shopping centres.  

An expansion process was undertaken later with the opening of offices outside of the El Corte Inglés and Hipercor shopping centres, in order to meet increasing demand. Today, it is the leader in the sector in Spain. 

The management model of Viajes El Corte Inglés is based on personal service capable of meeting each customer's individual needs, whether for professional or holiday trips. The selection of tourist products and services ensures creation of value for all customers.

Apart from the holiday segment, Viajes El Corte Inglés has a Company Division oriented towards corporate customers, providing consultancy on travel policy and cost reduction, thereby optimising the quality-price ratio and providing added value. It also includes a section that specialises in planning and organising conferences and incentive trips, as well as managing all the services required for these types of events.
  
The travel agency has over 500 offices and operates in countries such as France, Belgium, Portugal, Italy, the United States, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, the Dominican Republic and Uruguay, as well as Spain.

The strategy of Viajes El Corte Inglés is based on reinforcing its presence in Spain and accelerating its expansion abroad in order to provide a "global" service reaching beyond the countries where it already operates
