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 — Goway Travel and Australian Pacific Touring (APT) have announced the extension of their early bird savings for bookings made by May 31.
Extended from the previous March 31 deadline, the EBB offers clients a 5% discount on their deposit, or up to 10% off a trip fully paid at time of booking. Solo travellers can also take advantage of competitive single traveller rates, says Goway.
The joint Goway – APT Escorted Vacation 2019/2020 brochure, at 84-pages, offers a range of Premier and Value-Plus touring options, including new Small Group Journeys.
The brochure also includes new offerings in both New Zealand and Australia. Two new luxury small group trips – each accepting no more than 20 guests – open up new sides of New Zealand with local experiences. Travellers can join locals at their Rotorua home for a Maori dinner, take a twilight cruise to Waiheke Island for wine tasting, a vineyard tour and dinner overlooking the Auckland skyline, and a whale-watching cruise in Kaikoura, on the lookout for New Zealand fur seals, dusky dolphins, and giant sperm whales.
Travellers can also stay at some of New Zealand’s most distinctive properties such as the Marlborough Vintners Hotel, and Peppers Parehua Country Estate in Martinborough.
The 13-day North Island Wonders travels from Auckland to Wellington and is priced from $8,595 per person, twin share, with savings included. Also on offer is the 12-day South Island Sensation journey from Wellington to Queenstown priced from $7,995 per person, twin share, including the launch saving.
Two new land tours include the 18-day New Zealand Experience tour, a luxury journey from Christchurch to Auckland highlighted by a three-course dining experience in Marlborough, a traditional Maori Hangi feast, a guided tour of Napier, and a catamaran cruise around the Bay of Islands. This trip starts at $8,545 per person, twin share, including the launch saving.
In Australia agents can offer the new APT Value-Plus 15-day Treasures of Australia tour from Sydney to Melbourne, from $6,645 per person, twin share, including the launch saving.
