Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — Avalon Waterways has slashed prices on a select number of sailings with a newly launched flash sale.
Applicable to 16 ‘Tulip Time’ and ‘Active & Discovery on the Rhine’ sailings, the sale allows clients to save $1,200 per person plus gain access to affordable airfares to Europe.
Using major scheduled airlines, Avalon will fly clients from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa or Montreal for just $499, taxes included. And for an additional $100-$150, clients can add on connecting fares from 16 other cities across Canada.
Eight-day ‘Tulip Time’ cruises, which depart in March, allow travellers to sail past acres of colourful tulip fields and enjoy the urban vibes of cities like Amsterdam and Antwerp. With the flash sale, prices start at $1,895 (excluding airfare).
Clients can also sail from Amsterdam down the Rhine on an eight-day ‘Active & Discovery’ sailing. Departing from May to October, these cruises include a daily choice of a classic walking tour or an experience of discovery, all included in the Avalon price. During the flash sale, prices start at $3,209 (excluding airfare). Some departures sail from Wiesbaden, Germany back to Amsterdam.
