Press Release: CONTIKI OFFERS KICKBACKS ON GROUP TRAVEL

Group Programs Offer Cash-Back Incentives, “Age Flexible” Travel

ANAHEIM, CA – Contiki Holidays, the industry leader in expertly designed vacations, has developed two programs that offer both large and small group incentives for booking travel abroad. The programs, which are utilized by a wide-array of organizations including study abroad, culinary, religious and alumni programs, offer cash-back incentives and free travel for group leaders.

Contiki’s custom group travel program is designed for groups of 20 or more people and provides complimentary spaces for trip leaders. In conjunction with the program, Contiki is flexible with its 18-35 year old age range limit and allows students under the age of 18 and chaperones over 35 to travel with the group. A Contiki group specialist also works with the leader(s) to create a customized itinerary that aligns with the interests of the travelers. Each custom program includes hotel accommodations, daily transportation, a Contiki tour manager and breakfast daily. In addition, Contiki offers activities such as dinners, sightseeing tours and excursions that can be added on to any itinerary.

To meet the needs of smaller groups, Contiki offers incentive travel for members of alumni associations, sororities, fraternities and student clubs traveling with five to 20 people. This program blocks space on regular Contiki tours and provides the group with marketing support to help promote their selected trip. As a bonus, Contiki donates $75 – $150 to the group or charity of their choice for every person that books with the group. Once the group has reached 10 people, a free spot is given to the trip organizer and each traveler receives $25 – $50 in vouchers good for optional activities like sky diving, white water rafting, and wine tasting.

“Contiki will continue to put the most flexible options and valuable incentives in place to support group travel to many of the most beautiful and historic destinations in the world,” said Greg “Fish” Fischbein, President of Contiki Holidays. “Our group specialists are highly-trained experts experienced in delivering packages that reflect the interests of each group and delivering to that expectation with the utmost professionalism.”
