Costsaver is expanding to two additional destinations with new itineraries in Australia and New Zealand for 2022 as the brand prepares to meet the increased demand for open spaces and off-the-beaten-path experiences.
As international borders begin to reopen, these new itineraries offer the expertise of a guided experience with all the essentials and opportunities for clients to tailor the trip to create their perfect bucket list adventure.
The new itineraries are available for booking now for travel in 2022 and 2023.
“We saw amazing growth before the pandemic and with high demand for destinations with plenty of open spaces showing no signs of slowing down, we believe Australia and New Zealand are a natural fit, offering unpackaged and personalized experiences for Canadian clients to get the most out of their vacations,” said Wolf Paunic, president of Trafalgar, Brendan Vacations and Costsaver Canada. “With no change fees and deposit protection for more flexibility plus customizable opportunities, we’re confident Costsaver’s momentum will continue to push forward into 2022 and beyond."
Clients discover the great cities of Australia on Cosmopolitan Sydney and Melbourne, where they’ll spend the nine-day adventure exploring Blue Mountains National Park in Sydney, checking out the trendy cafes in Canberra, embarking on a street art tour in Melbourne and more.
Adventurous clients will enjoy uncovering Tropical Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, taking guests through the tropical Daintree Rainforest, into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
They will join a local Aboriginal Guide at Cooya Beach to learn more about the Traditional Custodians of the land, visiting the traditional fishing grounds of the Kuku Yalanji people.
Treating Cairns as home base during this six-day adventure, guests indulge in the tastes of the Outback with fresh seafood and exciting nightlife.
The Essence of Southern New Zealand tour offers clients a chance to explore the dynamic South Island.
The seven-day tour begins in Christchurch where guests will explore the Garden City before making their way along the shores of Lake Pukaki and arriving at Aoraki Mount Cook National Park.
After a day of hikes and breath-taking views, clients journey to the fast-paced capital city of Queenstown for wine tasting and adventures. Guests then spend a day in the glacial village of Franz Josef before continuing back to Christchurch.
As part of these three itineraries, Costsaver has introduced 40 optional experiences for guests to choose to enhance and personalize their travels. These experiences range from surf lessons on Bondi Beach to spa treatments at Te Waonui Forest Retreat in New Zealand and more.
Costsaver offers more than 650 ways globally for clients to customize their trips, putting choice at the forefront of the travel experience.
