Travel off-peak with Trafalgar’s newly announced AWS program

Trafalgar celebrates the wonders of Italy and Europe with savings this fall

TORONTO — Trafalgar celebrated the beauty and flavours of Italy with a private screening of The Trip to Italy at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

Jeff Element, President of The Travel Corporation Canada, and Wolf Paunic, VP of Sales at Trafalgar Tours, were on hand to greet moviegoers and showcase Trafalgar’s beautiful Italy brochure with 19 different itineraries.

Trafalgar is offering a special promotional offer for Italy and the fall European Season in which clients can save 12%, or up to $944 per couple, on select departures in August, September and October. Travel to Europe in the fall can be ideal because of the more moderate temperatures, fewer crowds and the opportunity to connect with more locals.

“Selling Trafalgar’s European departures is one of the highest revenue generators for our loyal agents and many retailers have recognized that due to a prolonged winter, Canadians are planning their trips for later in the year and this late booking trend, which is on average 15% higher than last year, continues to demonstrate the pent-up demand in the our market,” says Doug Patterson, president of Trafalgar Canada.

Some of the select departures include: Italy Bellissimo beginning in Rome and visiting Capri, Venice, Tuscany and more (departing Sept. 17 and 24); Britain and Ireland Highlights touring London, Stratford-upon-Avon, the Lake District, Edinburgh and more (departing Sept. 11 and 19); and Spain, Morocco and Portugal to explore Madrid, Granada, Marrakesh and more (departing Oct. 3).

Clients can also save on the following seven itineraries and departure dates: Best of Italy – Aug 26, 30, Sept. 2, 2014;
Best of Britain  – Aug. 27, 2014;
Best of Ireland and Scotland – Aug. 15 & Oct. 3, 2014;
Britain and Ireland Highlights  – Sept. 11, 19 & Oct. 16, 2014;
Spain, Portugal and Morocco – Oct. 3, 2014; Italy Bellissimo – Aug. 24 & 29; Sept. 17 & 24; Oct. 1 & 8, 2014; Best of Germany – Sept. 28, Oct. 12, 2014.

“With this banner year of late summer and fall sales, we have created a portfolio of booking incentives addressing the needs of diverse demographic groups and we have seen a significant increase in bookings for fall travel with our definite departures which still have space, but are selling out fast,” Patterson continues.

Note that prices are subject to change and availability, and cannot be combined with any other offers. Agents can use the Promo Code: PPTDEF129 at the time of booking on any 2014 Europe & Britain itinerary (with the exception of Autumn, Winter & Spring) that are scheduled to run from now through October.
