As we enter 2015, Insight Vacations has launched its “Signature Year” with some of the top travel trends.
And, with international travel from Canada up 10% from 2013, Insight guests can embrace their wanderlust by saving up to 10% ($867 per couple) to Europe when booking by Jan. 15.
The idea of authenticity continues to top the list when it comes to travellers’ wishes. Insight believes a “signature” is a mark of authenticity and so bases its travel offerings on the idea that their clients can have off-the-beaten-track experiences in the destinations they go to, including meeting locals and artisans to tasting food and wine from their signature regions throughout Europe.
