Five lucky agents were also chosen to be Contiki ambassadors. After a month-long search and hundr of submissions, the agents will be provided with a ton of GoPro equipment and sent out on an all-expenses-paid Contiki trip – which sounds like the best damn prize you could win, TBH.
In 2019, Contiki will run brand new trips to Israel Jordan – highlights include a guided tour of Petra, travelling across Wadi Rum by 4WD, floating in the Dead Sea and a visit to the Iraq Al-Amir Women’s Cooperative, an organisation dedicated to raising the financial independence of women in the region and a Contiki Cares initiative.
Iconic Essentials was also revealed, a travel style centred around stretching the budget. By focusing on just the essential experiences, travellers are more in control of their funds while still getting that great Contiki experience.
With only the essential experiences included, as well as simple but fun quad- accommodation, this new travel style is all about value without compromise. The Iconic Essentials travel style replaces ‘High Energy’, which was synonymous with nightlife throughout Europe.
“From in-depth research and focus groups with our customers what we do know is how incredibly important value is to today’s young traveller. By focusing on just the essential experiences, travellers are more in control of their budget while still getting that great Contiki experience.
