Contiki unveils 2012-13 South Pacific program

Contiki Holidays has launched its Australia and New Zealand program for 2012-13. Including Hawaii and Fiji stopovers, the South Pacific brochure now features the seven-day “Ultimate NZ Ski”trip for adventurous travellers who want to hit the slopes in Queenstown. Clients can also forget about early mornings after late-night festivities – all itineraries now include start times no earlier than 9 a.m. Kicking off the launch of its new Australia & New Zealand brochure, Contiki is offering clients $200 off the land cost of any tour 10 days or longer when they book by May 25. In addition, Contiki travellers can take advantage of an exclusive Qantas’ youth fare and fly from $875. “Our Australia and New Zealand brochure has always been popular with youth travellers, so we’re pleased to be able to offer them savings on the itineraries and on airfare through Qantas,”says Contiki president Brad Ford. “The South Pacific is such a diverse destination and our trips appeal to travellers of all kinds, whether it’s an adventurer looking to go ziplining in New Zealand or a group of friends wanting to relax on Australia’s most beautiful beaches.”Contiki is celebrating the new brochure with a “Have You Done It Down Unda?”contest, giving 18-35’s the chance to win a 14-day trip to either Australia or New Zealand. Travellers have to submit a video, photo or paragraph explaining why Australia or New Zealand is on their bucket list. Secondary prizes include airfare for two to Australia with Qantas and a Silversonic dive and snorkel cruise for two adults. (
