The Globus family of brands has launched Independence by Globus – a new travel style dedicated to offering travellers “I”-opening adventures of the world and all its wonder, with expert help and without the group. 

“With Independence by Globus, our guests are free to enjoy the many benefits of touring, on their own and without the group,” said Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands. “They can look forward to enjoying travelling better in destinations across the globe, on their own, with hand-picked hotel accommodations, hand-selected optional excursions and the services of local experts to uncover the perfect ways to spend their days on vacation.”

As is the case with all Globus journeys, on an Independence by Globus vacation, Globus takes care of the details for guests with included accommodations, daily breakfasts, select guided sightseeing and transportation between cities. 

As it does with all Globus itineraries, the company can also handle flight arrangements and airport transfers.

With the greatest depth and breadth of travel styles of any international tour operator, Globus has unveiled Independence by Globus with two, featured vacation options for independently minded travellers: 

1. “Independent City Stays” featuring some of the world’s most spectacular cities across Europe, South America and Asia. 

2. “Independent Tours” offering travellers a larger swath of featured destinations and countries around the globe.

Local Insiders

In addition, travellers who choose an Independence by Globus itinerary can explore confidently with the expert support they need, including helpful hints and recommendations from their Globus Local Hosts to help them make the most of free time. 

They also have access to the brand’s GlobusGO app packed with insider tips that invite them to explore their destination like a local.

Make it personal

Designed to help guests cure their curiosities and explore their passions, Independence by Globus provides a robust list of hand-selected optional excursions to enhance their getaways as well as seamless extensions and destination add-ons to keep the adventure going.
