Travel Tip Tuesday: Send Postcards to Yourself

ParisPostcardsDo you love postcards?  They’re such a great way to communicate your travels with your family and friends and Contiki even launched a mobile phone app that allows you to create postcards using the photos you’ve taken on tour.

However, did you ever think to mail YOURSELF a postcard?  It might seem silly considering that you are the person actually traveling but consider it a lovely memento of every single place you’ve traveled to.  Once you return from your trip, you can go to your local office supply store and have all the postcards bound together so you have a souvenir book with a piece of each city you’ve visited in one place!  Easier than a scrapbook and capture how you felt at that very moment!

Have you ever created a postcard book?

 

The Benefits of Booking Air with Contiki

PlanePicOne of Contiki’s most frequently asked questions is, “Is airfare included in the cost of the tour?” 

While Contiki does provide airfare for your internal flights (think flying between Shanghai and Guilin in China), the cost of airfare is not included in the listed price of the tour.

However, Contiki can help you book your international airfare when you book your tour with us – giving you options aside from the online booking engines. We’ve compiled 8 reasons to do so!  Check out our newest resource, The 8 Benefits of Booking Your Flight with Contiki!
