Wanderlust: Three Great Vacation Deals

Hello #WanderlustWednesday! Here, Zoomer’s picks of the deals and steals – travelling well, for less

Deal #1: Save 10% on next year’s European or North American vacation with Globus

Savvy travellers know that the early bird gets the worm – and that booking travel early is a great way to save money. If you’re thinking of an escorted coach tour in Europe, Canada or the USA next year, Globus has some tempting offers to help you save some serious dollars.

Europe: You’ll save a generous 10 per cent off the price of any of the 68 European itineraries which are available for sale now – and even lock in your airfare to Europe against currency or fuel surcharges when you book and pay your deposit now. All you need to do is reserve by September 16 this year and you will save up to $783 per person off the cost of a Europe early booking vacation.

For the 35 North American tours now open for sale, all you have to do is pay in full nine months prior to your departure to receive 10 per cent – up to $554 per person – off your 2015 vacation.

For repeat guests: And there’s an added bonus for customers who have travelled before with any of the Globus family of brands companies (Globus, Cosmos, Monograms or Avalon Waterways) – they’ll receive an additional 5 per cent savings through Journeys Club, the Globus family of brands repeat traveller loyalty club.
