Contiki's New Campaign Shares Advantages Of Europe In Winter, Offers 15% Off

Open Jaw

Contiki’s new “Europe Winter” campaign helps agents encourage their young clients to book a winter trip. Until 31JUL, 2019, the tour operator geared towards 18-35-year-olds is offering agents and their clients 15% off all Europe Winter adventures.

"There is absolutely no better time to explore Europe than during the winter months," says Sheralyn Berry, President of Contiki Canada. “From sipping mulled wine at a traditional Christkindlmarkt in Germany to still being able to bask in the warm Mediterranean sun, there’s something for every type of adventurer during the off-season in Europe."

Contiki has put together their top five selling tips on why Europe is a great option for winter travel:

  1. No crowds - The majority of travellers visit the continent during the summer months, so winter proves a far calmer time of the year that will offer clients the opportunity to see the sights at their own pace without having to elbow their way to the perfect shot.
  2. Having true, local experiences - Most of the locals in Europe escape for summer vacations but come winter, it’s business as usual with clients being able to really get a feel for the vibe of the place they’re in.
  3. Visits to the famous European Christmas Markets - The age-old tradition of the Christmas or Yuletide market only takes place during winter.
  4. Indulging in comfort food - If a client has food on their mind, there’s nothing like the comfort of the wholesome food that a winter in Europe offers.
  5. Enjoying the winter sun - Europe can easily be the alternative to the traditional sun destinations, providing culture, art, history, food and even warmth during winter.

"We know young Canadians are price-conscious and our new campaign provides a great opportunity for travel agents looking to sell the benefits of a Europe winter escape: cheaper airfare and on-the-ground costs, fewer crowds and good vibes all around," says Berry.

There are 21 itineraries to choose from for Contiki’s Winter Europe Adventures, including European Discovery which checks off nine countries in 12 days, Berlin to Budapest, Simply Italy, Mediterranean Quest, and others.
