Summer savings with Contiki’s Europe Preview

TORONTO — Contiki has launched its new 2018 Europe Summer Preview Program with a 10% discount off its Europe Summer 2018 preview trips and an additional 10% savings to clients that book early.

With the loonie forecasted to weaken against the euro throughout 2017 and 2018, according to analysts predictions made by CIBC, Contiki says its new offer will allow millennial travellers looking to escape to Europe next year, a great incentive to start planning their adventures now by being able to secure 2017 pricing for their 2018 summer vacations without the worry of an exchange fluctuation.

Contiki’s limited time preview offering is available now until Sept. 7, savings for clients worth up to $820 if booked and paid before Sept. 7. After that date full prices for Contiki’s 2018 Europe program will kick in.

“This incredible deal is a great selling tool for our loyal agent partners who might have millennial clients still sitting on the fence about booking their Europe vacations early,” says Sheralyn Berry, Vice President of Sales at Contiki Holidays Canada. “While millennials are known to book their trips last minute, we encourage agents to use our preview offering as one of the ways to help their young clients save on their travels. With the loonie constantly fluctuating, this is a great way to offer clients peace of mind when it comes to budgeting for their vacations.”

Contiki’s 2018 Europe Summer Preview program features 10+ of its most popular itineraries, all seven days or longer and across a range of trip styles from Discoverer and High Energy to In-Depth Explorer, Easy Pace and Sailing & Cruise products.
