TORONTO — Both Trafalgar and Contiki are sharing the luck of the Irish this St Patrick’s Day with savings on select departures.
Through March 19 Trafalgar is taking 12% off three of its most popular guided vacations to the Emerald Isle. Showcased under the banner of #meanwhileinireland and valid for select departures in spring and summer 2017, the trips include: the seven-day Irish Highlights to Dublin, Waterford, Killarney and Limerick; the 10-day Best of Ireland (reverse); and the 14-day Amazing Ireland.
“With its incredible warmth of hospitality, legendary storytelling and musical heritage, there are many reasons why the island of Ireland continues to be one of Trafalgar’s most popular destinations,” said Wolf Paunic, President, Trafalgar Canada. “We hope that in showcasing some of the more fun and unusual sides of the country and its culture, the #meanwhileinireland promo will help our valued agent partners to sell Trafalgar trips to the Emerald Isle with even greater ease and confidence.”
In addition to the 12% savings on land, the #meanwhileinireland promo is combinable with 5% past guest discount. See trafalgar.com/can/offers/st-patricks-day.
Contiki’s Ireland sale kicks off today and runs until March 31, as part of its 2017 ‘Early Bird 2’ campaign. Contiki clients can save up to $314 plus $150 off all Contiki trips through Ireland.
For agents, for every Contiki passenger booked in one of the trips that include the featured EB2 destinations through March 31, the booking agent will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. When agents sell five Contiki trips (that are seven days or longer), they will be entered to win ‘The Ultimate Contiki Experience’ in partnership with WestJet that includes a trip for two to Europe with airfare from WestJet, a Contiki travel pack and $500 in spending money.
