Keeping the Tourist Office in La Tania – Sign the petition now!
We’re giving this another push for some more signatures… Sign Here!
The Tourist Office is a valuable resource in La Tania but there are plans to close it down and rely on the services of 1850 and Le Praz. Despite spending hundreds of millions of Euros on the 2023 World Cup as a huge publicity drive and kudos for Courchevel, removing the Tourist Office that really provides the PR, support and help for visitors seems to be a step backwards. There were reports that the ESF were going to provide some kind of Tourist Office support but surely this would be a secondary and hardly independent service.
The essential services provided for all visitors include information and reservations on all the available activities in Summer & Winter plus leaflets, flyers & brochures and a central location for posters of all the weekly events – even daily comprehensive weather forecasts are displayed. In addition they supply help with transport links, underground car parking spaces, organise events & entertainments for all, welcome drinks and even welcome breakfasts at the gondola station.
It also serves as a Post Office, Lost (and found) Property location, WiFi provider, photocopying & laminating point, sports equipment rental & tennis court reservation / key holding as well as being a central information and support hub to keep the community together.
There have been some great staff over the years, all multilingual, friendly and helpful that have really promoted La Tania and help show the resort off in the best way.
The Petition Details Translated below:
TO MAINTAIN A COURCHEVEL TOURISM OFFICE IN LA TANIA.
We, residents, owners and holidaymakers, as users of the tourist office, ask for the maintaining of a Courchevel Tourist Office in La Tania. In addition to the exchange of information, the Tourist Office manages the reservation schedule and the handing over of keys to the tennis court, the loan of ping-pong, volleyball, pétanque equipment, etc. plus a WiFi and Post Office service.
All of these services are more than essential to the friendliness of La Tania, to customer loyalty and resort life. Maintaining this position is obviously fundamental for the promotion of Courchevel and the quality of holiday seasons.
The Tourist Office is the showcase of the resort! La Tania has already lost a lot following the merger with Courchevel and we must stop making bad budget choices for the sake of economic savings to the detriment of quality.
For the attention of Courchevel Tourisme and the Mayor of Courchevel.
