Trafalgar’s 17% discount should help fuel 2017 travel resolutions

TORONTO — Trafalgar is offering 17% savings on 17 guided vacations for travel next year. The deal is valid on new bookings through Jan. 7, 2017.

The tour operator points to an Ipsos poll that shows that 31% of Canadians make New Year’s resolutions (and 73% break them). “Resolve not to be one of the 73%, make the next 12 months more meaningful and embrace the new you starting with a Trafalgar guided vacation at 17% off,” says the company.

Clients resolving to enjoy more family time can take advantage of 17% off Trafalgar’s ‘Gladiators, Gondolas and Gold’ itinerary. “Hold on to your helmet as you enroll in gladiator school and learn the basics of sword fighting, create your own Venetian Carnival mask and cook up a storm as you learn how to make the perfect pizza during your family fun outing.” Families can also marvel at the mystery in the land of magicians and muggles as they follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter, stay in a castle and learn about life as a Roman soldier at Hadrian’s Wall, before ending the adventure in ‘Edinburgh Castles & Kilts’.

Trafalgar’s resolution number four – ‘explore new places’ – is the perfect motivation to book the company’s 10-day ‘Sound of Music’ tour. “Discover why the hills are still alive as you learn about the heritage of the Habsburg Empire and stay at the 18th century family estate of the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, the spectacular setting for several scenes from the film Sound of Music. Take a horse drawn carriage ride to the magical Neuschwanstein Castle and enjoy the cultural sights of imperial Vienna.”

Trafalgar has a quick but impactful final resolution: travel more. “Whether you’re a first-timer, or it’s a firm favourite, there’s always a reason to (re)visit Europe. Get a taste for la dolce vita, slow down the pace and take a leisurely jaunt through Rome, Florence and Venice with Great Italian Cities. Enjoy architectural feats, frescoes and feasts galore, including dinner with a local family in their home in Tuscany, complete with a backdrop of vineyards and olive groves.”

Clients can also uncover the colourful folklore of Central Europe and experience where old meets new throughout Berlin, Warsaw and Vienna on ‘Bohemian Highlights’. They can delve into Hungarian history and meet with a local family to hear their compelling tale of how their winery doubled as a hiding place for a Jewish friend fleeing persecution in WWII, visit the Old Town of Prague, the Baroque town centre of Gyor and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wieliczka, one of the world’s oldest salt mines.

Or they can bask in the beauty of a trio of travel temptations on ‘Spain, Morocco and Portugal’ and discover the scent of spice markets, Mediterranean sunshine and astounding architecture such as the Alhambra Palace. Or even saddle up for a stud farm visit in Portugal, learn about local healing potions at a pharmacy in Morocco and sample sherry in the Jerez vineyards of Spain.

Trafalgar’s 17% promotion is not combinable with the company’s Early Payment Discount or any other promotional offer. Full payment is due at the time of booking. To find out more information, contact your Sales Manager or visit
