Trafalgar is offering more in-depth insider travel experiences across its newly released Europe and Britain programme for next year, giving guests the opportunity to delve deeper into the cultures and customs of every destination featured.
The company's CEO, Gavin Tollman, said: “Today, authentic travel is in our brand’s DNA and for 2014 we have continued to refine our product, looking at the uniqueness of each itinerary, every destination and ensuring that we go further, delivering even richer more authentic experiences.”
The newly launched brochure offers 104 itineraries and more than 320 distinctive insider experiences. These include 52 Be My Guest experiences including, for example, the new Domaine Meillan-Pages winery in Provence not known to those outside of Luberon, which has produced wine for 40 years using only local ingredients.
Tollman said: "The feedback from our guests on the Be My Guest experiences is that they absolutely love it; and the beauty is that it benefits both parties, with hosts commenting on how nice it is to meet so many different nationalities."
New Local Specialties include a Northern Spain Cider Tasting at a traditional bar in Oviedo; a Swiss chocolate museum visit near Lugano; and in Vienna, a visit to the Kunsthistorisches Museum.
The brochure also offers new guided holidays including an 11-day Northern Spain; seven-day Swiss Delight; 13-day The Balkans and Venice; 17-day Wonders of Europe; and nine-day Delights of London and Paris.
Early payment discounts of up to 10% are available for holidays booked and paid prior to January 15, 2014, and all prices include private door-to door UK airport transfers.
Meanwhile, the operator is encouraging agents to 'come on board' and highlight its range of unique experiences to their clients.
Tollman said: "Our recommendation rate from our guests travelling to Europe last year was our highest ever at 99.15%, and sales for next year are up by more than 50%. We are also seeing increasing numbers of business partners and agents buying into the unique experiences we offer and, in return, are starting to see a profound, positive impact on their business."
