Posted: 11 Nov 2019 Costsaver Builds on Europe & Britain Success By Introducing Six New Trips For 2020


With the continued growth of Costsaver, the brand is proud to announce its latest launch of new Europe & Britain trips for the 2020 season with a series of exciting new products and expansions. Alongside the current suite of successful itineraries, Costsaver is expanding its   portfolio to include six new trips and an exciting new destination, Egypt, bringing the total offering to 41 trips.

Like the tagline suggests ‘Essential by Us, Tailored by You’ style of trips is the perfect solution for guests looking for the flexibility of independent travel, but with the ease of the essentials being taken care of by an expert. It offers plenty of ways for guests to make their trip their own through a range of optional experiences and free time to enjoy each destination the way they want. This is particularly appealing for those looking for a more independent holiday, without the stress of going it alone.


From launching Egypt, and expanding into more of Portugal, Italy, Turkey and Scotland, we’re recognising where our customers, both new and returning want to go, and we’re making sure that we’re ready to take them there in 2020”  said Kelly Jackson, Head of Sales for The Travel Corporation, parent company to Costsaver. “Guests are telling us that they love the reassurance of the essentials, but it’s really the flexibility of more options that meet their needs and wants when they travel, so we’re excited to be giving them what they’re looking for, at a great price that they couldn’t get if they booked it themselves” she added.

Travellers eyeing up the chance to see Europe, but do it their way, will delight in the updates for the 2020 season. After the overwhelming success of its Italy series, Costsaver is expanding with a brand new 10-day Essence of Italy itinerary. The trip includes hand-selected 3 and 4-star hotels, transportation on our comfortable air-conditioned coaches, and visits to some of the most iconic sights in each destination, such as a private cruise through Venice, an unforgettable trip to Rome, and a wonderful journey to Florence. Guests will have full flexibility to personalise their holiday, with carefully curated optional experiences such as skipping the queues at the Vatican and the Colosseum, and plenty of free time to explore the destinations their own way with the help of their Travel Director’s expertise.

The brand is also expanding to some of Europe & Britain’s most in-demand destinations in 2020, including Egypt, Portugal and Scotland. The 9-day Footsteps of the Pharaohs itinerary introduces Egypt to the Costsaver lineup, and includes a number of incredible experiences such as sailing the Nile, seeing the treasures of Tutankhamun and exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza, with plenty of time to soak up the history of Egypt’s mindblowing past, while relaxing over local treats or shopping up a storm at the souks.  

With the brand being overwhelmed by such an enthusiastic response to their Iberia trips, Costsaver has also introduced a 7-day Picturesque Portugal itinerary, offering a deeper dive into this increasingly popular country in just one week. As the first Costsaver trip focusing solely on Portugal, guests will discover the beautiful streets of Lisbon, see the legacy of Tomar, and explore the medieval wonders of Porto to name a few destinations visited.

The 7-day Majestic Scotland itinerary is also the first Costsaver trip to feature Scotland on its own, offering guests an extensive exploration of all the highlights including historic Edinburgh, mystical Loch Lomond and towering Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. The same applies to Turkey with new Treasures of Turkey itinerary, to meet customer feedback for more choice, and features a brand new destination, Safranbolu. Travellers have even more choice, with two sole Turkish itineries at 10 and 15 days, for more flexibility with the time they have to travel.

The 17-day Discover the Baltics and Russia combines two of the brand’s most-loved trips into one glorious journey, taking guests through the gorgeous capitals of the Baltics such as Riga, Warsaw and Tallinn, and the grand sights of Russia, including the Red Square in Moscow and the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg.

The inclusion of optional experiences offers something for every type of traveller, whether it’s a traditional dinner in Lithuania, a behind-the-scenes tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia, or a cruise down the vineyard-clad Douro River in Portugal, giving guests the freedom to tailor their holiday, their way. The brand continues to expand the new range of optional experiences for 2020, and there will be even more optional experiences going live in the coming months, to explore within one destination, for an even greater commitment to the promise of trips being ‘tailored by you’.

The brand is a breath of fresh air for travellers wanting to make their rand go that little bit further, as Costsaver continues to offer value tours without compromise’.
