Cosmos Tours & Cruises has reported more than a 60% growth across its Australasia tour and cruise programme for 2016/17, as customers invest in a ‘trip of a life time’, to experience both Australia and New Zealand.

Janet Parton, head of sales for the operator, said: “We are delighted to see that despite economic uncertainties this year, our customers still want to invest in a high value ‘trip of a life time’. The excitement of travelling to Australia and New Zealand is definitely a ‘bucket list’ destination for most. 65% of customers booking our ‘Highlights of Australia’ tour want to extend their stay, with a cruise around New Zealand with Princess Cruises. This combination of a land based tour with a cruise is the perfect way to experience this incredible continent.

“To meet this demand, we have plans to expand our choice of touring products in the region, with a new tour of southern Australia and a combined tour of both Australia and New Zealand. Three night city stopovers in Singapore or Bangkok will also be an option for any customers booking an Australasia holiday.”

The operator’s 28-day ‘Highlights of Australia & New Zealand Cruise’ costs from £5,415 per person and includes flights, 12 nights hotel accommodation, services of a tour director, 13 nights full-board cruise accommodation and a range of guided sightseeing and airport transfers.
