The Travel Corporation wants to make European vacations a reality for those dreaming of a holiday on that continent.
Jeff Element, who oversees The Travel Corporation’s Canadian operation, told a Toronto audience this week that our dollar is doing well against the euro, even while faring poorly against its American counterpart.
“There’s still lots of offers…There’s still lots of air capacity…,” he said. “This is the year to go.”
Travel Corporation brands include Contiki, with Element saying Contiki can cater to “every budget, every travel style.”
Contiki clients can take in a variety of experiences, including Munich’s famed Oktoberfest, with those attending possibly finding themselves “sitting there with hundreds of your closest friends. I think 20 years later people can taste that exact same beer,” he said of the lively fall celebration.
Romantically inclined Insight Vacations’ clients in turn can choose the likes of an eveningtime gondola ride that will have them serenaded beneath the stars.
They can also visit castles, such as Germany’s Neuschwanstein, reportedly the inspiration for the castle at Disneyland.
