Make your dream trip a re­al­ity

The Tribune (NZ) - - TERRACE END EASY SHOPPING -

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.’’
