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 — Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold have released their 2020 Preview collection featuring “unbeatable” 2019 prices for travel to Europe and Britain next year.
As part of the launch, clients can book now and pay only a $200 deposit to take advantage of the Preview Price Guarantee on 87 journeys and departures. Travel agents are reminded that if the price of an Insight or Luxury Gold European journey increases, both companies will honour the Preview price, and if the price goes down they will refund the difference.
Clients can save with the Preview Price Guarantee by booking during the preview period and also save an additional 10% with Insight and Luxury Gold’s Early Payment Discount. Past guests can save an extra 5% across all trips and departures during the Preview period.
“Our most popular smaller-group journeys sell out fast and our loyal travel advisors can encourage clients to book early and secure their space on their preferred trip and departure date with our Preview Price Guarantee,” said Brad Ford, president of Insight Vacations in Canada. “We see a heightened demand for Europe in 2020, including the Oberammergau Passion Play, which only takes place once every 10 years. We are offering the best deal to book next year’s dream trip now.”
Preview itineraries include the following:
Normandy, Brittany and the Loire Valley: This eight-day journey begins in Paris before heading to Rouen, the capital of Normandy, and the charming fishing town of Honfleur.
