Contiki Launches New Train Trips As Part Of 2020 Europe Product Release

Open Jaw


Contiki Holidays is offering six brand new Europe vacations including three new train trips, new boutique accommodation and new conscious, wellness and active experiences.

"Contiki understands social travel has changed and what young travellers want is constantly evolving – which is why we’re constantly evolving our product. Though we already use a variety of transport styles around the world, introducing train trips is a first for Contiki in Europ," says Sheralyn Berry, president of Contiki Canada.

"We still love our coaches and we’ve released a new fleet with Euro6 engines – the cleanest on the market – but the key driver for our latest release is to provide travellers with a variety of options. I'm extremely proud of the new product our team has pulled together for 2020 and we can’t wait for travellers to join us on our newest trips."

Contiki's Europe product for 2020 has been radically streamlined, with 23 trips cut to improve quality and efficiency of itineraries, as well as updates made to a further 33 trips.

All new trips launched in Europe are seven to 12 days in response to a global trend for shorter trips, with an average trip length of 11.8 days predicted for 2021.

Contiki's new Europe trips include:

Contiki's 2020-21 Europe program includes smaller group sizes of 24 on train trips, optional start and end locations and a range of new cultural, local, food, wellness/active and conscious experiences designed especially for travellers aged 18-35.
