5 reasons why Contiki's a great idea


5 reasons why Contiki's a great idea

story by: Contiki

Designed specifically for young travellers aged between 18 and 35, Contiki is the original touring company that offers just the right balance of sightseeing, free time and guidance from the​ Trip Managers. 

No two travellers are the same. That’s why Contiki Holidays offers eight trip styles that cater to the different experiences young people want to have on holiday.

Contiki provides more choice, more freedom and more destinations at a great price. And with plenty of awesome included experiences there is something to suit everyone. 

1. Fuss-free – no planning required
With Contiki, simply pick the holiday that appeals from their huge range in Europe, the Americas or Asia. Then Contiki and your local House of Travel agent plans it all so travellers quite literally turn up, bag-in-hand and wait for instruction at the start of their tour. From the accommodation, to the duration of each stay, transfers, tickets and touristy must-sees, everything is covered.

2. Local experts
With a Contiki trip, travellers leave home, travel the world and live independently but with the added bonus that Contiki are always on-hand,something they've been perfecting since 1962. Common pit-falls are avoided; de-coding the Paris underground becomes easy, finding central (and available) accommodation isn’t an issue and a Contiki Trip Manager is on hand - to offer tips and advice to maximise free time. 

3. Instant friends
Most Contiki tours consists of between 25 and 50 travellers so whether you are travelling on your own or with a friend or two, you will make new friends along the way. The beauty of Contiki is that guests make instant friends the first day of the trip. One dinner, a few laughs and a shared interest (travel) is all it takes to bond with other travellers from around the globe. 

4. Culture & history
With 270 global trips in their repertoire, it would be nigh impossible to embark on a Contiki trip and not learn a thing or two. From French chateaux to the murky dungeons of London, Obama’s flashy white digs and the Great Wall of China; culture exists at every Contiki turn. 

With Contiki, you'll get VIP access to the world's icons, skipping to the front of the line at the Eiffel Tower and Colosseum. The Italian Renaissance may not appeal in the depths of a dusty book, but when it’s combined with an authentic 30” Margherita and served by the locals, that’s when it gets interesting!

5. Original and best
Put simply, Contiki are the experts in youth travel being the original since ’62. Those years of experience count. Travellers are picked up and dropped off and Contiki’s awesome team of Trip Managers, Drivers and Local Guides know as much about the destinations visited as the locals themselves, so you know that they will be taken care of along the way.

So that’s Contiki – the perfect gift. We can’t gift wrap it, but we can promise they’ll love it!
