Euro Free Europe

October 15, 2008 by  
Filed under International

For the many of us who love to travel abroad, the shrinking dollar value against the Euro may have us pondering about how to get the best value and still be able to make that trip without breaking the bank.

In fact, there are many European countries where the Euro has not been put to use, and it is still possible to get a good deal for your dollar. Poland, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Denmark and Switzerland are just a few examples.

There are many tours, both independent and escorted, to most of these countries. So, if you have the itch to travel abroad in 2009, consider a tour destination where your dollar is worth more.

Also, think about taking a European River Cruise in 2009. Globus Tours offers some wonderful cruises with Avalon Waterways, cruising the Danube, Rhine, Rhône and Saône Rivers.

Although most European River Cruises include cities where the Euro is in use, Avalon Waterways takes away the worry of high costs by including such things as sightseeing in each city, and unlimited local wines with your onboard dinner each evening. Avalon’s beautiful new ships offer state of the art amenities such as fitness centers, whirlpools, flatscreen satellite televisions, internet & wi-fi, hotel style bedding and spacious 172 sq. foot staterooms. Take part in a lecture or activity, or enjoy the relaxing piano bar.

If you are interested in either a tour or river cruise in Europe, we will be happy to provide you with more information or suggestions to plan your Euro-Free getaway!

As Winter approaches… It’s time to think Sunshine!

TNT Vacations, celebrating their 35th anniversary, has just released their 2009 Sunshine Travel Guide. ABC Travel has been a long time supporter of TNT Vacations, and our agents have just returned from their 2009 Product Launch.

This winter, TNT Vacations will be offering nonstop charters to Aruba, Mexico and Punta Cana.

With airlines making travel more difficult, it may be time to reevaluate the charter flights available to us from Boston. They will also continue to offer packages to other destinations, utilizing regularly scheduled service.

This winter there will be no fuel surcharges, no baggage fees, no fee for drinks, snacks or meals on their charter vacations. Flights are nonstop, therefore eliminating the likelihood of lost luggage. Departure and arrival times promise to be more convenient, and overnight packages will once again be offered for the evening prior to departure including parking for the duration of the trip.

TNT now offers No-Worry Travel Protection for Scheduled and Charter flights for cancellation for any reason, and now coverage for scheduled airlines vacations, providing a refund in lieu of credit vouchers previously offered.
