MEDIA RELEASE
15 July, 2014

Europe in Winter 14/15 heats up as Topdeck Travel announces new destinations

Leading youth travel brand Topdeck Travel has launched its latest Europe Autumn and Winter 2014/15 brochure featuring new destinations, six new trips and 32 itineraries ranging from four to 28 days.

The new release includes over 15 additional departures for the season, bolstering the offering to accommodate growing demand from young travelers, which is an emerging trend being seen across the Topdeck Travel suite.

As part of the new release, an earlybird discount will apply to all trips in the brochure when booked and paid in full 6 months in advance.

Topdeck Travel Director of Sales Ben Ittensohn says winter’s charm in the Old World is enticing more passengers to cross the globe in search of snow-capped mountains, winter feasts and festive cheers – minus the summer crowds, which has resulted in a substantial increase in passenger capacity for the 2014/15 season.

“The temperature may have dropped, but Europe still remains one of the hottest destinations in the world during winter and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after periods of the travel calendar,” says Ittensohn.

“We have seen a remarkable increase in the number of young travelers visiting Europe over the cooler seasons, so to keep up with this we’ve not only launched a range of exciting new trips and destinations, but have also increased our capacity to accommodate for over additional 800 passengers.”

The new multi-country winter trips feature unforgettable ‘Totally Topdeck’ experiences, including ski or snowboard in the Austrian Alps, entry to world-renowned Gellért Baths, Paris ‘City Lights’ tour, Gondola ride in Venice, bicycle tour of Amsterdam, local guide in Florence and overnight stay in UNESCO heritage listed Český Krumlov.
