“LOW SEASON” EUROPEAN VACATIONS

Travel Industry Leader Creates Value-Focused Getaways,
Many of Which Offer Exclusive Savings for the Solo Traveler


LITTLETON, Colorado – May 27, 2009 – The Globus family of brands has expertly designed and unveiled nearly 40 “low season” vacations, offering Americans a plethora of opportunities to travel abroad at unbeatable prices this fall, winter and next spring.   A highlight of this introduction is the removal of the single supplement on eight vacations in destinations such as Britain, Ireland, France and Italy.

“It’s never been easier – or less expensive – to make European travel dreams come true,” said Steve Born.  “In addition to unveiling Guilt-Free Getaways earlier this year, we’re now opening the door to savings for solo travelers on several tours.  On these tours, travelers going solo will not pay a single supplement for their own room, offering savings of up to $600.  Plus, our new collection of ‘low season’ travel packages save all travelers between 20 and 50 percent – that’s $1,000 or more – on air-inclusive European vacations when compared to peak season pricing.”

From river cruises on the Rhine, Danube, Saône and the Rhône to tours across Europe ranging from six to 15 days as well as seven holiday-themed vacations, the Globus family of brands’ “European Winter Vacations” offer unparalleled savings to Europe.

Even more chances to save are available for those who plan ahead and book their vacations early:  Travelers who book an air-inclusive 2009/2010 Globus Europe Winter escorted vacation before August 4, 2009 can get an extra $100 off/person.*
