ONE OF the biggest global networks of travel agents, Canada’s Uniglobe, plans to open 25 offices in Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

“In Slovakia there is currently space for five to seven,” Jiří Krajča from the Canadian company told the Hospodárske Noviny daily in mid November. Uniglobe, which focuses on vacations as well as business travel, wants to concentrate on the latter in Slovakia.

For now, Uniglobe is represented only in Bratislava and plans to open its first official branch in the near future.

Uniglobe is not the only travel company which wants to enter the Slovak market. The Czech company Invidia, which focuses on holidays and last-minute stays, is also planning to expand in Slovakia.
