Anchorage, Alaska – Great Alaskan Holidays continues as a dedicated supporter of the State of Alaska’s tourism industry, reaching a salient milestone during the 2017 rental season.
Beginning as a small motorhome rental company in early 1985, Great Alaskan Holidays has surpassed all previous seasons by renting out more motorhomes, and more rental days, than any other season in the company’s 32-year history.
“We spend a lot of one-on-one time with our valued customers as we aggressively position ourselves out in front of fluid and ever-changing targets such as evolving marketing conditions and overall customer satisfaction,” Great Alaskan Holidays Director of Marketing Bob Johnson says. “We’ve learned a lot over the years, relying heavily on customer and industry interaction. And most recently, during the 2017 ATIA Convention, we re-learned through a presentation from Destination Analysts, that Alaska isn’t necessarily on the top of minds when it comes to travel destinations.
"This detailed study validates our belief that private enterprise must continue stepping up in support of Alaska’s tourism industry, and it must do so through meaningful, thoughtful outreach and collaboration with partner tourism businesses. Great Alaskan Holidays remains passionately devoted to our employees, our customers, the markets we serve, our partners and our local communities as we look forward to an equally strong 2018 tourism season.”
