Make your dream trip a reality
Now is the best time to get great deals on flights, tours and cruises for 2017 and, if you’re planning a dream holiday, the travel professionals at Terrace End’s Travelsmart have a range of fantastic itineraries to suit different travel styles and budgets.
Owner and manager Michele Gullery says this is an especially good time to plan your get-away to the northern hemisphere and by booking before mid December people are able to get the best prices for travel anytime in 2017.
Europe is a dream destination for many people and there are so many options for the grand tour. For some people it’s a chance to catch up with family and take in a few sights while for others it’s the opportunity to take in the culture, the history, the picturesque landscapes or the culinary delights that Europe has to offer.
With this in mind, Travelsmart are holding an information evening at 7pm on Wednesday November 16, at the Steeple Conference Centre at 110 Fitzherbert Avenue, where you can find out more about travelling around the UK and Europe.
Michele says they will have representatives available to help provide information on the many airline options as well as the fabulous tours and cruises and, most importantly, how easy it is to leave all the planning up to the Travelsmart travel professionals.
When people go to Travelsmart, Michele, Margaret and Shelley can put together a package to match exactly what the clients’ interests are and what they would like to do.
‘‘We can plan the travel to suit both the clients’ ideas and budget,’’ says Michele.
‘‘Some people may only want us to arrange air travel, insurance, along with a few days stopover each way to Europe. Other people like us to arrange a complete day-to-day itinerary from start to finish which includes travel, accommodation and sightseeing as well as a variety of evening entertainment, whatever you need, we are here for you.’’
Cruising holidays are another great way of visiting and experiencing specific destinations. Depending on how long you plan to be away you could choose a shorter cruise or spend much of your holiday on one grand cruise.
‘‘Another fantastic option is taking a ‘Backroads Tour’ around UK and Europe. These are designed for small groups and take you along ‘the roads less travelled’,’’ says Michele.
‘‘On these tours you get to look deeper into the history and culture of a region, giving you the opportunity to see and feel a destination through the eyes of people who know the area best: the locals who call it home. These journeys allow you time to soak in the atmosphere and each day ends in a boutique retreat, loaded with local charm. There are a huge number of options available and they can easily be incorporated into your grand tour.
‘‘At the end of the day, the choice in tours and cruising is virtually endless,’’ Michele says.
Travelsmart will arrange flights, accommodation, tours, activities, and insurance as well as organise currency, money cards and anything else you may require.
As Michele says: ’’You dream it, we’ll do all the planning and then all you have to do is turn up at the airport on time, sit back, relax and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime.’’
