Destination WE

History

Destination Touristic Services was founded in July 2013 as a new global DMC network to provide incoming services to tour operators (B2B). Destination Touristic Services has now developed into a broadly positioned and globally acting company and implemented a bed bank with a highly competitive product portfolio to its clients.
In order to monitor all offices in the destinations, an independent headquarters has been formed, based in Palma de Mallorca, DER Touristik Services S.L.U. It functions as a holding company for all Destination Touristic Services subsidiaries.

Having started its operations in November 2013 with destination offices in Egypt, UAE, Bulgaria and Tunisia, the company is constantly growing. Since opening incoming subsidiaries in Spain and Turkey in November 2014, Destination Touristic Services has become the market leader in Egypt and Tunisia for German holidaymakers.
Since January 2015, the company has offered its services in Greece, and since May 2016, also in Central Europe, with headquarters in Austria and local offices in Croatia. As of 2017, Destination Touristic Services provides services in the Dominican Republic, and in 2018, operations for Croatia were set up separately from Central Europe with an own subsidiary in Croatia. The last addition to destination touristic services’ destination portfolio is Cyprus, which has come on board in 2020.
