Ah, summer; the time to travel – or is it? Often when the holidays roll by, we immediately make plans to travel abroad or to chillax with the fambam. One thing we keep forgetting is how incredibly packed the season can get with everyone doing the same thing! If you’re a person who prefers a little more privacy and peace of mind when you travel, perhaps you should read on…
Escape by Globus
Is a guided coach tour program by Globus, offers all the glitz and glam of traveling abroad but exclusively during off-peak season. After all, what’s better than enjoying great views without a massive crowd? Escape by Globus not only offers amazing escapes for you to try out as an adventure, but all of their trips come with massive savings and perks as well. Say what!
Globus believes in “Half the crowd, half the price”, and by the end of this; you’ll see why too! So, what’s good about traveling during the winter season (November to March)? Well, here are some highlights for you to focus on your next trip overseas!
1. How to beat queues? Travel during off-peak season!
As winter usually hits Europe around November to March, this is the best time to plan your trips. Off-peak season is when you can hit all of the top sightseeing places with less travelers than usual. So now, you can beat the queues (can you imagine lining up for hours in the winter? Brrr!) when it comes to entrances! With Skip the Line and Priority entrances, you can now hop on in and go forth with your sightseeing plans!
2. First Class Experiences
Fewer travelers during this period, means one thing… more availability at hotels! So now, you can experience staying at superior hotels and accommodations which would usually be fully booked or cost more during the summer!
Pretty neat, right? Stay at centrally located First Class hotels in the city with easy access to all the major stores and restaurants. Best part is that you don’t even have to burn a huge hole in your pocket, as the low prices start from only USD99 a day! Enjoy a First Class experience to all sorts; the Scottish Highlands, Greece, and even Morocco!
3. Single Supplement Waived
They say that the best way to self-discovery is by taking a solo trip. Why not test that theory now – and have a discount while you’re at it? Be the first 5 Single Travellers booked on an Escape by Globus tour and have the Single Room Supplement Waived! Save some extra bucks and have an entire room to yourself while on tour (subject to availability) with Escapes by Globus. Gone are the days of packing into a crowded dorm room…
4. The Winter Season itself!
Need we say more? Wouldn’t you want to take a break from the hot Malaysian weather and enjoy the cool air for a change?
In fact, with the right timing and a little bit of luck, you may even have the possibility of playing in the snow. There are also great winter activities to check out, such as the Christmas Markets, New Year festivities, and not to mention the decorations!
5. But why choose Guided Tours?
It’s a common misconception that guided tours are for older people, as the adventure and discovering should be up to us. However, it is also because of this that young travelers often get lost and end up wasting their precious time abroad that should have been used wisely. While the tours cover the important sites and attractions, Globus’ tours are not as rushed as your regular guided tours, so the dislike of being whisked away from spot to spot should not be a worry!
Guided tours actually help you save more, With a local expert taking care of you, the chances of being ripped off will be lesser. The tours also includes ample of free time, so if you like to wander off on your own; fret not! As some trips involve staying in cities for 2 nights, you will be free to spend the time however you’d like. So if you prefer gallivanting the nightlife of Morocco instead of having a Moroccan dinner at The Fez; feel free to do so! Therefore, the tours are still made for you.
With tour prices starting from just RM2,940, its sounds like a pretty good deal, eh? If you like what you see, contact Sedunia Travel, the General Sales Agent for Globus in Malaysia. You can also check out Escape by Globus or reach them at +603-2142 0222.
