Cosmos Tours has entered the European specialist interest market for 2017 with a new range of culinary and religious tours based on customer demand for this type of holiday experience. The new tours are featured in the operator’s newly launched 2017 Europe brochure offering a broad range of aspirational touring holidays.
New for 2017 is a free home VIP chauffeur service included with every holiday, a £50 per person discount early booking offer and free single rooms on selected holidays and dates.
To help agents choose the perfect holiday for individual customers, each tour is now graded to indicate the pace of the tour with the level of guided excursions included.
Working with expert local contractors, the new religious tours in Italy, Spain, Poland and France showcase the historical and spiritual highlights of the religious centres and are combined with three and four graded hotels.
As examples, an eight-day ‘Spiritual Highlights of Poland’ leads in at £1,049 per person and travels from Warsaw to Zakopane in the south. It includes a visit to the House of the Congregation of Our Lady and an opportunity to attend mass in the Jansa Gora Monastery.
Alternatively, a nine-day ‘Spiritual Highlights of Italy' option travels round-trip from Rome and includes the opportunity to attend the Papal audience in the Vatican and visits to the abbey in Montecassiono, plus sightseeing in St Peters Square. Prices start from £1,119 and a special departure on September 23 coincides with the anniversary of Padre Pio’s death.
The single traveller market is catered for with a wide range of single rooms available with no single supplement to pay in destinations such as the Baltics, Croatia, Northern Cyprus, Romania, Albania, Morocco. The offer is available on all departures of ‘Discover Northern Cyprus’ and ‘Coast and Cities of Croatia’ and on selected departures for the other tours.
The new brochure features a range of aspirational holidays throughout Europe and North America including classic touring, special interest tours, single or twin-centre tours, river cruises as well as the relaxed pace ‘Relax & Explore’. Flights are featured from 24 UK airports with the option of adding extra nights, holiday extensions or the combination of two holidays back-to-back. All prices quoted include a free VIP chauffeur service, flights, accommodation and transfers.
