Travelling At Your Pace @ My Travel Expo

split-1272629_1920

Sometimes when we are eager to get away and see that dreamed of destination like Split and the Dalmatian Coast, or the herds of the Serengeti, or even just a night at the west end in London, we look for tours and groups that suit what we desire and come up empty, sometimes we just need to do it in our own time and at our own pace.

This something we can help you with as easily as we help put you aboard your favourite tour. If you have 3 days or 6 weeks and want to ensure that everything for your trip is organised then we can help. From rail segments, to hotel. From Flights to Transfers. From Sightseeing to attraction passes there are hundreds of opportunities out there for the traveller who wants to see and do it all without hopping aboard a group tour.

With partners like South America Tourism Office, the Africa Safari Co, Beyond Travel, Adventureworld, Wendy Wu Tours and Qantas Holidays we can organise tailor made travel arrangements to suit your needs. Whether you are looking for a privately guided tour of Mexico,  or just a few days in London with sightseeing we can help you organise your holiday.

“It’s cheaper for me to book it when I get there ..”

Is something that we hear from so many people, and in truth it is a myth. While there are the occasional local specials that are available, a lot of local tours and prices are the same as what you would get by booking through an agency. More, if you book through an agency everything is ready and prepaid, you won’t have to worry about extra finances whilst on holidays !

“We didn’t get to see as much as we hoped for while there ..”

Is the other thing that we hear most from those that want to organise touring  and day trips whilst overseas. As anyone can tell you, when you are sitting in a hotel trying to decide from pamphlets what tour to take or sight to see hours can slip by, availability may not end up being there, and time is wasted that could be better used either sightseeing or really relaxing. Pre-organising your touring not only saves you money, but saves you time and allows you the opportunity to better organise your trip away to do what you want.

My Field Of Lights Experience

field of lights

In April 2016 international artist, Bruce Munro, came to Uluru and brought with him an incredible artwork. The solar-powered installation known as the “Field of Lights” is comprised of more than 50,000 stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres and will bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland, until the end of March in 2017.

To take advantage of this rare event and visit some of the incredible locations around Uluru, while taking the effort to avoid the scalding summer heat, My Travel Expert and the Shoalhaven Solo Sisters have organised a one off departure to discover the field of lights.

Departing 30th August 2016 from Sydney and returning 2 September this programme covers return airfares and domestic taxes flying with Virgin Australia* , 3 nights at the Voyages Outback Pioneer Hotel in a standard room with full breakfast daily, the Field Of Lights Star Pass, return transfers between the airport and accommodation in Ayers Rock, an Uluru Sunrise and Kata Juta Tour, an Uluru Sunset and BBQ Dinner, and Free Indigenous Guest Activities Programme.

SSS Update, Early December!

remarkable Rocks 2Seeking Expressions Of Interest: We are still hoping to settle a date for our tour to South Australia and Kangaroo Island, but we do need numbers – if you are interested in the area please let us know! We are also seeking starters for a introductory tour to Bangkok and of course our Christmas Markets tour. For more information on any of these please do not hesitate to contact us!

Classifieds: We have found a partner for the lady seeking a room-mate on Canada, if there is anyone still interested in Canada or our European River Cruise, we do still have a number of spaces available. We also have a lady travelling to China who is not averse to finding a travelling companion prior to going – if you have ever wanted to see the Great Wall, the Terracotta Warriors, the Yangtze or the Stone Forest then perhaps this is the opportunity for you.  We also have a lady looking for a companion to join her in experiencing the Kimberleys either on tour or via cruise, so if you have always wanted to see the top end perhaps this is your chance!

2016 Tour Workshops: So far our workshops for our 2016 Tours (which are all being held in 2015) are starting to fill – the first one in January which will showcase our upcoming Egypt trip now has limited spaces available. Should you wish to sign up to any of our workshops please visit the My Travel Expert facebook page or register directly at Eventbrite!

A Few Solo Specials From AAT Kings

Over the past few months between talking about our events, tours and trips we have been introducing information about providers like Travel Indochina and Peregrine who have a solo matching system in place. These products are great but are not the only ones out there that are thinking of solo travellers. While they are great for the most part due to no single supplements there are providers who are putting together discounted packages for solo traveller such as Insight and AAT Kings.

Specials with these other companies work on a basis of reducing the single supplement costs to as minimal as possible rather than eradicationg them altogether and matching with strangers. So if you don’t mind travelling alone and spending AU$300 on a single supplement rather than AU$600 sounds good (as an example) then let us know and we can see what would match your needs.

For now, here are a few special AAT Kings have let us know about across Australia and Tasmania
