This is an administrative step, since, basically, it involves the confirmation of the award carried out a month ago, when the agency in charge of travel for the elderly awarded two of the three lots of the program to Mundiplan (the integrated business union for Iberia, IAG7 and Alsa) and another to Ávoris (Barceló and Halcón Viajes).

In this way, Mundiplan is awarded the trips of the lots in the areas of the peninsular and insular coast; while Ávoris corresponds to inland tourism.

The first of these contracts, the peninsular coast lot, has been awarded for a maximum amount of 26.4 million euros, as shown in the State Contracting Platform; while the other batch of Mundiplan, that of insular coasts, is 19.8 million. In the case of the interior tourism lot of European origin, awarded to Ávoris, it reaches a global amount of 7.78 million euros, according to the aforementioned documentation.

When will they arrive at the travel agencies?

From now on a period of 15 working days is opened for companies to file an appeal, according to sources from the Imserso, which are required to meet the administrative deadlines set by law after the award.
