Itineraries range from a 28-day luxury New Zealand Splendour tour taking in more than 12 different destinations, as well as a cruise and alpine train, to an exclusive 15-day small group and four-wheel-drive Kimberley Complete tour featuring wilderness lodges.

Highlights for agents selling Australia and New Zealand include guaranteed departures; all sightseeing, accommodation, overseas transfers and most meals are included; itineraries featuring immersive tours, with a two-night stay in most destinations, and up to four nights included in iconic cities such as Melbourne and Sydney; and savings of up to £1,200 per couple on the 28-day New Zealand Splendour tour when booked before October 31, and more than £500 per couple on a host of other tours until February 29, 2016.

Immersive tour experiences include overnight cruises on selected New Zealand itineraries, a 20-day Great New Zealand Rail and Cruise tour featuring six different scenic rail journeys, and the addition of Port Douglas on several Australia tours to offer additional beach relaxation time.
