Topdeck Travel is expanding its global reach with the launch of 11 new trips across Asia.
The programme adds a new continent to its current mix of destinations, spanning Europe, Australia and New Zealand, North America, Egypt and the Middle East and Africa. The company is the first to launch a product of this style in this location and, according to the operator, it’s a picture of what is yet to come.
The trip range is designed to suit 18-39 year olds looking for adventure, local experiences and a premium product at an affordable price, and trips feature smaller group sizes and local guides for an authentic Asian experience.
The company’s global brand director, Sarah Clark, said the decision to move into Asia was part of a bigger growth plan to meet the demands of the youth travel market and open up more of the world for 18-30 somethings: “The results from our Global Youth Travel Survey saw more than 31,000 people respond with the common trend being that Asia was the next sought after destination.
“Topdeckers can expect three- to four-star hotels including pools, rooftop bars and twin share accommodation - a great example of our one size doesn’t fit all mantra.
"We choose vehicles relevant to the area such as bullet trains in Japan, tuk tuks in Vietnam and ferries in Thailand, as well as using modern purpose built air-conditioned coaches. The trips are designed with local trip leaders to give customers an all access guide to Asia to see it like the locals do, experiencing authentic street food markets, a social enterprise restaurant and lunching with locals in remote villages delivers an all-round unique trip.”
Clark recommends the 27-day Indochina and Thailand trip as an ideal way to explore Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Bangkok. Meanwhile, to celebrate the launch, the company is offering a 25% discount for all departures before June 30, 2016 and a 15% launch deal paid in full by January 15, 2016 for departures after July 1, 2016.
