The Xunta and the Tourist Housing Association of Galicia will collaborate in terms of promotion and regularization.
The vice-president of the Xunta and Regional Minister of Presidency, Justice and Tourism, Alfonso Rueda; the director of the Galicia Tourism Agency, Nava Castro, and the president of the Galician Tourist Housing Association (Aviturga), Dulcinea Aguín, have just presented an update of Vitgal.es, the booking platform set up by the latter organisation to market its accommodation. With the changes made, the website will allow to locate those homes that are in the different routes of the Way of St. James thus becoming an element of support to the promotion of Xacobeo 21-22.
This update, which will help to publicise Aviturga’s accommodation in national and international markets, is part of the collaboration project that the association and the Xunta are carrying out to reduce the number of unregulated tourist accommodation and to develop training and professionalisation activities among their responsible. The regional government is contributing 80,700 euros to a project that will enable vitgal.es to incorporate a telephone service for registering new properties on this booking platform.
A similar service will also be set up on legaliciate.gal, the platform set up by the Xunta and Aviturga to specifically promote the registration process for tourist accommodation and ensure that they can be rented in compliance with Galician regulations. The head of Galicia Tourism points out that these actions will consolidate the quality tourism offer in this sector while reducing the number of establishments that operate outside the regulations.
