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