October, 2011: To help young travellers identify which itineraries will give them longer stays and later starts, Contiki Holidays has highlighted 16 new Easy Pace tours in its 2012/13 Europe program.
Contiki’s Easy Pace tours are spread across its Time Out Multi-Country and Time Out In-Depth Regional series and all feature two or three night stays in each city, mostly later starts and all accommodation in well-located, comfortable hotels.
“At Contiki we recognise all travellers are not cut from the same cloth. There are those who want to do, see and experience as much as possible in as many places as possible, those who would rather see less but delve deeper and those who are a mix of the two,” says Contiki general manager Tony Laskey.
“Our new range of Easy Pace itineraries is definitely suited to the traveller seeking a more relaxed way to discover Europe. The two or three night stays in each city, plus later starts, give travellers a real chance to immerse themselves in each destination.”
He says launching the Easy Pace itineraries across the Time Out series was a logical move.
“Given that they are all about comfort, value and staying in well-located hotels, our Time Out itineraries tend to mainly attract the upper end of our 18-35 demographic, and those who have visited Europe previously. These travellers want a slightly slower-paced holiday with the maximum free time, yet the benefits of all Contiki’s inclusions.
“On Easy Pace, travellers will still see all the major sights, eat authentic meals and have local experiences, but in addition, they’ll also have more time to get under the skin of the places they visit.”
Contiki’s Easy Pace tours include the 11-day Amsterdam to Barcelona, the 19-day European Inspiration, the nine-day London, Paris & Amsterdam, the eight-day Italian Espresso, the 11-day Berlin to Budapest, the eight-day Croatian Island Cruising, the 13-day Greek Island Hopping and several more.
