Contiki Celebrates 50 Years

Contiki Celebrates 50 Years

Contiki Holidays celebrates turning the big Five-O this month, having been the original youth adventure travel brand since May 1962. Fifty years ago the first Contiki tour rolled out of London with a small group of travellers ready to explore Europe – now 50 years later the company offers over 190 different itinerary options across the globe, and inspires 100,000 passengers to see the world every year.

“It’s a rare achievement for any brand to remain relevant for 50 years, let alone a brand that targets the ever-changing youth market,” said Sharon Jordan. “While the core of what we do remains the same – offering young people the chance to see the world and create unforgettable memories – we have kept our finger on the pulse of what our consumers want and constantly adapted to meet their needs.”

Contiki’s success has been built on the bedrock of strong and mutually beneficial relationships with trade partners and, to celebrate this, Contiki has great savings of up to 25% on itineraries worldwide. The trips are hassle-free and include an ideal mix of sightseeing, culture and free time. Choose from over 190 itineraries throughout Europe, Russia, Egypt, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Mexico, Canada and the USA.

If any agents want to try experience travel the Contiki way, they should contact Sharon on 01 775 3838.
