Pre-Trip 3: after the complaint, the Government recognized better values ​​for the Mar del Plata hotel industry, which will now participate in the program

MAR DEL PLATA.– The hard and forceful claim of the Mar del Plata hoteliers, who this week had been confirmed outside the Pre-Trip 3 by maximum values ​​that left them without margin of profitability, found answers in government areas where listings were reviewed and they recognized Mar del Plata more than 50% more than rate.

Those who want to stay in these establishments during the coming months of October and November, always determined to benefit from this plan that returns up to 70,000 pesos in consumer credit, will not pay more than 7,701 pesos per double room in a one or two-star hotel , 12,269 in the three, 17,356 in the four and 33,531 in the highest category.

“Now it is time to re-register all of us to participate,” Jesús Osorno, president of the Gastronomic Hotel Business Association (AEHG), told LA NACION.Mauro V Rizzi

Until this Monday, when listings were published, those values ​​were 4,918, 7,999, 12,738 and 25,101, respectively, for which increases from 36 to 56% were applied.

“Now it is time to re-register all of us to participate,” the president of the Gastronomic Hotel Business Association (AEHG), Jesús Osorno, told LA NACION, who had confirmed this Monday that the operators of the sector were getting out of the program because the values ​​recognized for this destination by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Nation were not profitable.

“They have put us in the queue for values ​​among the destinations in the province of Buenos Aires, this is leaving us out of the program and harming the main seaside resort in the country”, he had anticipated and criticized the authorities with a message free of euphemisms : “They are considering Mar del Plata as a banter destination,” he told LA NACION.

These changes come after an immediate trip to Buenos Aires by directors of the AEHG to take the claim in person to the officials responsible for the area and, also, to their own peers from the Gastronomic Hotel Business Federation of the Argentine Republic (Fehgra). , which had initialed that list that located General Pueyrredon with the lowest prices in the province.

Together with the Mar del Plata hoteliers, the complaint from other sectors of the economy and the local government also exploded. The president of the Municipal Tourism Entity (Emtur), Bernardo Martín, stated that the values ​​​​announced on Monday were a mistake. “They are in time to correct it,” he said then.

The list released last Monday, with maximum values ​​for the hotel industry throughout the country, only had corrections for the services of the General Pueyrredon party, whose head is Mar del Plata

This third edition of the Previaje program maintains the reimbursement of 50% of the value of the contracted product/package, with a cap of 50,000 and the exception of 70,000 in the case of retirees and pensioners. Unlike the previous two, in this case the application period is more restricted (two months) and sets maximum prices for hotels and other types of accommodation.

Osorno celebrated this gesture of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Nation by attending and soon the claim of the Mar del Plata hotel industry. “They matched us with the rest of the Mar del Plata coast and now it does leave us competitive and in a position to play,” he explained just 48 hours after announcing that the city, with those initial conditions, would not participate in Preview 3.

The list released last Monday, with maximum values ​​for hotels throughout the country, only had corrections for the services of the General Pueyrredon party, whose head is Mar del Plata. Now it remains to be seen how it will affect other destinations that had also been affected. Among them Pinamar, which also considered very low the maximums set at 7,701 pesos for one and two star hotels, 9,269 for two and 17,356 for three.
