Travel website Culture Trip has launched TRIPS by Culture Trip — a collection of unique small-group adventures to let people experience extraordinary destinations in unexpected ways, together with other culturally curious travelers. Curated by travel experts and led by Local Insiders, the multi-day adventures offer exciting itineraries that combine immersive activities and unique places to stay.
Booking with confidence is more important than ever, which is why TRIPS by Culture Trip is committed to making booking hassle-free and ensuring COVID safety measures are in place for all TRIPS. The company also offers its Ultimate Covid Booking Guarantee, so if Covid-19 regulations change a customer’s plans, they can rebook for free (valid for bookings made by the end of October 2021 for travel before February 28, 2022). For bookings outside these dates, no change or cancellation fees are imposed, and customers can get a full refund should they need to postpone or cancel their trip up to 30 days prior to departure.
The diverse TRIPS itineraries - created by an experienced travel team - are aimed at travelers who want to connect with a place, its people, and its culture. All itineraries feature hand-picked, hyper-local experiences and authentic activities combined with quality accommodation that has a personal feel and is - where possible - locally owned. Thoughtfully planned with ample free time to unwind or explore solo, the itineraries offer the right balance of exploration, action, and relaxation. TRIPS are led by expert Local Insiders who know the destination inside out, show lesser-known places, share their in-depth knowledge, and reveal hidden gems that travelers might not be able to access or have otherwise discovered.
TRIPS launches with 30 itineraries in some of the world’s most captivating and off-the-grid places in the U.K., Europe, the U.S., Central America, North Africa, Asia, and other regions — with new itineraries added regularly. First departures are set to take place at the end of this year, with a focus on 2022. TRIPS durations range from four to 13 days, with prices starting from $1,169 per person*. Each trip will welcome up to 18 travelers aged 25 and over who can join solo or with friends. TRIPS styles include Discovery, Active, City Break, and Wellness, with physical ratings from easy to challenging.
Geraint Hamer, Culture Trip’s VP Tours, Packages & Wholesale, who is leading TRIPS said: “We have created TRIPS by Culture Trip to offer something new and exciting that brings together people who want to experience the world in a unique way — and embrace the value of shared experiences, cultural immersion, and travel that never feels rushed.
“We know that many consumers will look to their trusted travel agent to book, which is why we plan to build strong relationships with the trade and grow together. For launch, we have our dedicated Customer Support team — all with a background in trade – on hand to support agents through the booking process. In return, agents will get a competitive commission and the opportunity to book customers on a group travel adventure built for a post-Covid world.
“Millions of people come to Culture Trip every month, so we know what travelers around the world are interested in. Using these insights and our travel expertise, we’ve created TRIPS that take travelers straight to the heart of the action and show every destination in a fresh and meaningful way.”
