Trafalgar has introduced its new CostSaver brochure for 2014, offering 32 value-packed itineraries plus four City Breaks throughout Europe and Britain. Offering clients value without compromising on quality, the CostSaver range includes all the essentials while also allowing free time to explore, helping travellers see and do more for their money. With trips starting at $129 per day, CostSaver offers four itineraries under $1,400 p.p. — nine-day Highlights of the Italian Lakes, 10-day Spanish Experience, nine-day Irish Wonder and eight-day Taste of Britain. Plus, Trafalgar is offering 10% off the cost of trips as well as 10% off flights when booked and paid in full by Jan. 15, 2014.
“For clients wishing to see all the main sights of Europe and Britain, but also have time to explore the destination on their own, Trafalgar’s CostSaver itineraries will give them the best value for their money,” says Doug Patterson, president of Trafalgar Canada. “They’re still getting the unparalleled quality of service that Trafalgar offers through all of their product, but will be saving up to 30% than if they had planned the same vacation themselves — there’s no question over which option gives the greater value.”
