Topdeck Travel announces new destinations


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.

See Europe transform under a cloak of white and Christmas festivities with the 21- day Winter Pathway trip, visiting 10 countries from Rome to London now from $3320.00 per person, a saving of $175.00.

Marvel at the renowned beauty of the Swiss Alps with the 16-day Trail to the Alps, visiting six countries from London to Munich now from $3026.00 per person, a saving of $159.00.

Experience a 14-day Winter Soirée visiting nine countries from Munich to London now from $2209.00 per person, a saving of $116.00.

Enjoy Eastern Europe’s charm and character with the 10-day Eastern Journey, visiting four countries from Budapest to Berlin now from $1753.00 per person, a saving of $92.00.

This year, Topdeck Travel have also added an Iceland trip as its latest destination to visit. The 4-day Iceland Explorer gives you the time and flexibility to enjoy the stunning landscape of Reykjavik and includes a tour to the Blue Lagoon with a local guide, introduction to Iceland’s nightlife and covetable ‘Northern Lights Hunt’ tour. Tour now priced from $917.00 per person, a saving of $48.00.

*Terms and conditions apply. 5% earlybird applies to the basic trip price only and must be requested at the time of booking. All components of the booking must be paid by the required date to quality for the earlybird.
