TORONTO — Insight Vacations is launching its Europe 2017 program with a new look and feel, as well as three exciting new itineraries that bring guests closer to the showstoppers and lesser-discovered corners of Europe. With early booking bonuses and loyalty savings, now is a great time to book your client’s next trip to Europe.
“Travellers are still looking for the comfort and assurances of being part of a tour group. Insight can provide peace of mind and help minimize and avoid any disturbances,” said Cris David, president, Insight Vacations Canada. “Europe is still as exciting and romantic as ever, and early booking bonuses make it a great time to book.”
The new-look brochure has been designed to reflect the quality, attention to detail and the style with which guests can expect with an Insight Vacations trip. The brochure highlights each component of an Insight holiday, from the Signature Hotels and Experiences, fine dining and expertise of the Tour Directors to the five different travelling styles available to suit each individual guest.
“The new brochure brings out the ‘Insight Difference,’ making it easy to understand why an Insight vacation is so special and memorable – from the premium and Signature Hotels in the best locations to the farmers, artisans, chefs, vineyard owners, storytellers and Local Experts you meet along the way,” said John Boulding, global CEO, Insight Vacations. “We’ve also clearly broken out our trips into travelling styles, so that agents can easily identify the right trip for the right client. For guests looking for more relaxed starts and longer stays in each place, then Easy Pace will be for them, while a Discovery Journey takes in multiple destinations so it’s perfect for the first time visitor to Europe.”
Insight will add three new itineraries to the collection for 2017, including the 13-day ‘Country Roads of Southern Scandinavia’, an off-the-beaten track discovery of Scandinavia’s southern mountains, fjords, rivers and vibrant cities. Starting in Oslo and finishing in Copenhagen, highlights include a visit to the market stalls of Bergen, an island-hopping cruise through the fjords, and two nights in vibrant Aarhus.
Also new is the 30-day ‘Scandinavian Heritage’, which links the new ‘Country Roads of Southern Scandinavia’ itinerary with the existing ‘Grand Tour of Scandinavia’ trip to form an adventure through Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway. Guests will visit the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, see a working husky farm and enjoy champagne at the Northern Cape.
Lastly, the 9-day Warsaw and the Baltic States takes in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Guests will see how well Warsaw has been restored post-WWII, and visit the wonderful red-brick Gothic castle at Trakai, accessible via a wooden footbridge across an idyllic lake.
It is easier than ever for clients to make their Europe vacation dreams a reality with Insight’s Early Payment Discount, saving Canadian travellers up to 10% ($2,530 per couple) if booked and paid by Jan. 12, 2017.
“To help agents clinch the deal, we’re also offering these trips at better value than ever before, with prices flat or in many cases less than they were in 2016,” said David. “We are also continuing to extend a variety of savings such as Early Payment Discount, huge savings for solo travellers on specific Single Friendly departures and our Club Bon Voyage savings for returning guests.”
