Cosmos Tours & Cruises has launched its full range of 2015 North America and Worldwide holidays with a new flexible tour category, Relax and Explore’, a significant increase in cruising and touring holidays, as well as a private home pick-up service included in the holiday price.


A choice of smaller group tours in Asia, Africa and the Middle East has been added as well as new classic tours in North America and new options to extend a holiday with another tour or cruise to experience the most of a specific destination.

The popular ‘Start in Style’ service offers customers a home pick up service in a chauffeur-driven car and assistance with luggage on arrival into the terminal building with the same service offered on the return journey home.

The operator's head of product, Amy Shine, said: “To meet demand from the changing touring market, we have introduced a new tour classification ‘Relax & Explore’ to our Worldwide and North American programme. Already popular in the European programme, it offers the flexibility of a single or twin-centre, combined with the choice of doing and seeing as much with a range of optional excursions. Our customers want more of a flexible style holiday and the ability to decide on arrival what they want to experience and see.

“There are many incentives for booking early with our ‘Start In Style’ private chauffeur driven home pick up service included in the price and a low deposit of £175 per person on bookings made before December 19”.

New Relax and Explore holidays include an eight-day ‘Hanoi & Ho An’ (£1,579 per person), a five-day ‘Dubai’ option (£945), 15-day ‘Sydney, Rock & Reef’ (£2,699) or 15-day ‘Highlights of Australia’ itinerary (£2,629), a nine-day ‘Contrasting Costa Rica’ tour (£1,389) and a ten-day ‘Tale of Two Cities – Tokyo & Kyoto’ (£2,435).

To meet demand for small group touring in worldwide destinations, the new range includes a nine-day ‘Wild & Scenic Sri Lanka’ from £1,549, a 16-day ‘Enchanting Kerala & Southern India’ from £1,875 and an eight-day ‘Through The Savannah’ tour from £1,835.

To add to the choice of themed and worldwide special events available, several new options have been added for next year. New winter holidays include an eight-day ‘Alaska’s Iditarod Trail Dog Sled Race' from £2,169 and a nine-day ‘Cape Town & Winelands Culinary Delights’ from £2,075.

Special offers for the new brochure include an Airport Hotel Offer of £29 per room available at a four-star rated airport hotel for a one night pre- or post-tour stay and includes up to 14 nights' parking. And to meet demand from single travellers, a wider choice of departure dates and itineraries with no single supplement has been added to the programme.

A number of direct flights are available to North America and many long-haul destinations from Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
