Globalia will now be able to access Tourico's inventory of more than 100,000 worldwide hotels.

Reservations from Spain are up 34% percent so far in 2016, Tourico said, fueled mostly by bookings to North America, which increased 73% year-over-year.

"With outbound travel from Spain on the rise, our new partnership with Globalia will not only allow us to maintain momentum in the region, it will ensure Spanish travelers have access to even more travel product at unrivaled prices," said Nadia Younes, Tourico Holidays' regional sales director for Spain, Portugal, and France.

Inbound business is also up significantly from several source markets.

Growth has more than doubled in the United States, UK, China, Mexico, Canada and Australian markets.

Tourico also opened a Barcelona office to meet the growing demand.

"Travel agents and distributors across the globe are purchasing more product in Spain. To meet that growing demand, our local team is strategically contracting both big and small suppliers throughout the country," Younes said.
