Tour OperatorsNew tours recognise that not all travellers want the same thing.

Spot the differences: Contiki has done just that

Contiki: “We want choice to be at the heart of everything we do.”
Contiki: “We want choice to be at the heart of everything we do.”

Youth travel brand Contiki is giving travellers more choices with its latest product launch – with new destinations offered, plus new Pride trips and limited-edition age-restricted trips for those travellers who’d prefer to travel with more like-minded people.

“Every traveller is different, and this latest product launch is all about recognising that,” said Natasha Lawrence, commercial & product director at Contiki.

“We’re known around the world for our multi-country European adventures, but there are many more ways to explore Europe with us – and our newest trips demonstrate this perfectly,” Lawrence added,

“There’s Greece which is hugely popular, Georgia which is still a bit of an unknown and the Baltics which offer up thriving art, food and music scenes across cities like Tallinn and Riga.”

New for 2024 is the Vegan Food Europe Explorer for vegetarian and vegan travellers (or those who just like plant-based cooking) and those who want to discover Europe with a like-minded group.

Next year, European trips including Croatia Island Sail and Greek Island Hopping will run variations exclusive to both 18-22s and 27-35s.

Reunion trips, made exclusively for past Contiki travellers and friends aged between 35 and 45, will run across Morocco, Italy and Spain.

For members of the LGBTQIA+ community, there are two brand-new Contiki Pride trips: Greek Island-Hopping Pride and Croatia Island Sail Pride.

Popular trips ‘London to Athens’ and ‘London to Athens & Greek Island Hopping’ are now available as part of the ‘Plus’ range, which gives travellers the same Contiki experience, but with upgraded accommodation. They will stay in a minimum 3-star hotel, in a twin-share instead of a multi-share hostel dorm.

Lawrence added, “We want choice to be at the heart of everything we do. Of course every 18 to 35-year-old is welcome on all of our trips but we also know there are 19-year-olds and 33-year-olds who might want to travel with people their own age; there are people from the LGBTQIA+ community who might prefer to travel with a group of fellow community members; there are travellers who want to travel as a big group – but don’t necessarily want to share a room with five other people.”
