Hassle Free Travel @ My Travel Expo

173659157

Whether it is a trip through the heartland of America, the medieval cities of Europe, the ancient cities of South America or the lands of the Maharajah, a lot of people find the thought of how to connect one location with the next, and what to do in those locations exhausting. How to I get from Paris to Cologne? Will I have to wait in a long queue at the Taj Mahal? How many places can I reasonably see in Washington in a day?

Sometimes, when you are ready to experience a location – be in a new country, or part of your own, what you really want is to sit back and relax, enjoy the sights and sounds and let someone else worry about how you get between places, or what you are doing for breakfast. Which is where group touring is a fantastic way to experience locations around the world!

There are large group tour operators who offer a number of destinations across the world – their inclusions range for the all inclusive luxury style packages of APT, Scenic and Insight Vacations, to the good quality programmes of AAT Kings, Travelmarvel, Globus, Wendy Wu Tours and Trafalgar that cover what you want to see but may not include as many meals or drinks.

For the more budget conscious or those who enjoy a bit of adventure, but like the security of having someone there to look after your problems there are slew of operators running everything from small to large groups like Cosmos or Peregrine, or smaller groups and more intimate experiences with companies like G-Adventures or Intrepid.

Then you have your dedicated small group tour operators that use good quality accommodation, and tie off the ability to see fantastic sights with an intimate touring experience, or a unique focus on the touring, such as is available through operators like Back-Roads Touring, the Africa Safari Co, or National Geographic Journeys by G-Adventures.

Travelling With Family @ My Travel Expo

Many people don’t think that they can travel with family, they dread the thought of looking after kids as they struggle to sight see and get themselves around, and as a result many people who end up wanting to travel end up putting it off until after their children have grown.

We are here to tell you that waiting for the kids to grow up before enjoying your travel dreams is not necessary!

For those travelling with Kids under 5, or just wanting a relaxing break the easiest option for your travels with family is to do a Cruise or Resort Stay Holidays where the kids can be looked after by the Kids Club while you chill, indulging in the occasional day tour or adventure.

With companies like Sunlover Holidays, NCL Cruises, Qantas Holidays and Princess Cruises there are a world of options out there where you can get away, relax and leave the majority of looking after the kids to the professionals, while you kick back and relax. Though you should recall that most kids clubs need children to be at least 3 years of age.

For those with kids over 5 that is still an option, but there is a world of travelling opportunities out there that are specifically built for families, and will still allow you to get out and see your dream destination – like Peru or Kenya or Vietnam – and bring the kids along on what would be a fantastic journey.

Some operators like Trafalgar, Peregrine and Intrepid have family specific tours. Other companies like G-Adventures, the Africa Safari Co and Adventureworld can prepare tailor made itineraries for you and the family to have a fantastic holiday away that will keep you all enthralled.

Many options can be prepared to be fully escorted – so you have someone else (usually a guide) to help with the kids ! Or you can mix a self drive adventure with some escorted arrangements.

So if you have ever thought of travelling with Children, now is your best opportunity to look into it as we have twenty of our industry experts gathered for one night – most of whom can look after trips with families, be they small children, or teens. So for all the family travel information you want we suggest that you join us for ..

A European Evening In Nowra

eilean-donan-castle-650681

From the crumbling castles of the British Isles, to the romantic vineyards of France, from the sun blasted hills of a Santorini street, to the crisp mountain air of the Norwegian Fjords, Europe has an incredibly vast array of sights and sounds to attract the visitor, with many travelling there again, and again and again.

Whether it is a short visit combining city stays and touring in places like London and Rome, taking a river cruise down the Danube or Douro, hopping on a coach tour of the Baltic and Former Russian States, embarking on a self drive holiday of the UK,  or enjoying a cruise around the Mediterranean or Adriatic, Europe seems to call us again and again.

This August 4th, we are hosting a catered evening (so it is essential you RSVP if you wish to attend) to allow six specialists tell you how you can experience Europe in all in splendour. With film presentations and lively talks they will cover everything from cruising the waterways and oceans of Europe, to coach touring, city stays and self drive holidays.

Take this chance to meet the Experts from Trafalgar Tours, Insight Vacations, Princess Cruises, Qantas Holidays, Scenic and APT as they share their love for everything Europe at the Worrigee Ex-Servicemans Sports Club from 5pm on the 4th August.

All you need to do to reserve your space is click here and fill out a registration – places are limited, so make sure you secure yours today!

Europe, the USA & Beyond …

Get Away with Trafalgar & Insight

These days there are a number of tour operators that are beginning to realise that there is a need to match up single travellers – because nobody wants to pay a huge chunk of cash to do what everyone else is doing simply because they are on their own.

Two of those tour operators are Trafalgar Tours and Insight Vacations. These are two names that many of you would recognise, running set departure tours throughout Europe, the USA and most recently Asia and South America. Both companies have a “match up” policy where they attempt to match you up with another single traveller on their tours, it does help you save and if they can’t find a match they will usually allow you to travel anyway without paying a single supplement!

So if you have considered a trip around Europe to see the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Eiffel Tower or more than there are options. If you wanted to travel the Rocky Mountains, see the Grand Canyon or explore the wonders of Canada and the USA then we may have something for you! All you need to do is let us know you would like some information and we can get something to you.

Wine & Cheese Weekend

Just a last reminder that if you were thinking of joining us at the Nowra RSL on the 12th July for some Cheese and Wine Tasting then please RSVP by the 1st July.

Murray River Getaway & Hunter Valley Wine Weekend

We have about half the numbers we need for the Murray Valley Getaway – so if you were wanting to experience a few days aboard a traditional Paddlesteamer than now is the time to  reserve your spot. We also need quite a few more travellers to confirm our Hunter Valley Weekend – so we encourage those who want to come to let us know!
