Good Morning Ladies and Gents, just a very brief post to let you know that P&O have a “special sale”on this week only for the cruise that we are running to Moreton Island for Valentines Day, and for the Red Hat Society and Friends Getaway.

The current specials may save you up to AU$100 per person in a twin share cabin, and are available for 3 days only (29 September to 01 October 2014), so if you haven’t booked in then now is a great time to do so!

Special Note for those already Booked! Please note that we can’t just “switch” you over to the new special, doing so would make any onboard credit lost, and it would cause cancellation and rebooking fees – either of which are worth more than the current “savings

Discover Africa with Peregrine

Just expanding on our last post about Peregrine, and reminding you that they have a number of fantastic programmes out there for the single traveller where they will attempt to share you up with a stranger – and in most (but not all) cases waive the single supplement if they are unable to find you a room-mate.

One of the areas that they handle well is Africa covering the regular tourist routes in the South and East Africa as well those a bit more off the beaten track including Ethiopia, West Africa and the North African Coastline including Algeria, Egypt and Morocco.

Just a quick update to say that we still have a few spaces available on our Canada and Alaska departure – though our seating availability is starting to diminish. So if you would like to see some of the highlights of the Rocky Mountains such as the Wine Region of Kelowna in the  Okanagan Valley (pictured above), or some of the scenic seaside towns of the inside passage such as Ketchikan. So if you are still trying to decide if you want to go, take a peek at the below Rocky Mountaineer video, read up on the tour details here, and then get in touch with us to find out more or book yourself aboard!

Discover Europe With Peregrine

We spoke a little while ago about how great it is that Travel Indochina has a “Share with Stranger” policy on their tours.  Another company that does something similar is Peregrine .. who also have a match up policy on all of their departures. With many of those departures they will try and match you up with a like-minded traveller, and if they are unable to on most tours they will still get you away without a single supplement – though some may still require a small additional payment.

Unlike Travel Indochina the great thing about Peregrine is that their reach extends beyond Asia with tours available in Europe, Africa, South America, and North America .. so if you are a single traveller looking for a fantastic trip to a destination with a lot to offer, and with enough free time compared to group touring time then Peregrine may have the option for you!
