TORONTO — Clients heading to Europe off-season with Escapes by Globus can save an average of more than 40% on their late fall to early spring vacations.
Globus family of brands’ Stéphanie Bishop says Escapes by Globus is a compilation of the company’s most popular itineraries in Europe with departure dates November through March.
Bishop says the company’s Escapes portfolio has doubled in two years, fuelled by increased demand.
“It’s such a great idea: you get the same scenery and the same sights for much less,” says Bishop. “The heat is off, the crowds are halved and the locals have the time to spend connecting with visitors. And you still benefit from our planned excursions, the support and advice of your Tour Director and personal recommendations from expert local guides.” Escapes itineraries are available for less than Cdn$130 per day (airfare not included).”
Escapes by Globus also waives the single supplement, she adds.
