A trusted name in travel Our guided vacations give you incredible savings, with no compromise on quality. That’s because we’re part of Trafalgar – so you have the confidence of traveling with a team that’s been creating award-winning guided vacations for 67 years. What experience really means

Negotiating better prices

Satisfied guests

No compromises

A greener choice

Award-winning vacations

We’ve been leading the way in guided vacations for 67 years now. Of course that means we know the destinations you travel to inside out. But, over that time, we’ve also learned our guests’ tastes and needs change, which is why we’re always working hard to keep innovating, so our vacations stay fresh, relevant and exciting.

We know our guests want to save money, without missing out on Trafalgar’s usual uncompromising quality. That’s why all our vacations are guided by experienced Travel Directors and enjoyed on the luxury coaches you’d expect from Trafalgar. And our dedicated team behind the scenes are always on the road checking every part of your vacation, from making sure you’re getting the best-value hotels to quality-checking your breakfasts and guaranteeing our optional experiences are top notch.

06

We’ve been traveling the world sourcing the best experiences and places to stay for decades now. Trafalgar’s reputation, and the friendships we’ve established with contacts over this time, helps us negotiate discounts and extras not available to others. And that means you get unrivalled quality, reliability and the most value out of every day of your vacation.

By traveling in a group instead of hiring a car, you’re helping improve environmental standards in travel. Our coaches emit less carbon dioxide for every guest than cars – you can see how it adds up on page 88.

What are others saying?

We think what others say about us is more important than what we say – after all, it’s always good to have a recommendation. To find out more check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TrafalgarTravel

More than two million people have traveled the world with us. We’re proud to say the majority of our guests say their CostSaver experience was excellent, with 97% saying it was good to excellent – and we’re working to make that 100%. You can see what our guests think at www.facebook.com/TrafalgarTravel

As part of Trafalgar, we win global awards every year – including best international or escorted tour operator awards at the Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards 2012, AFTA National Travel Industry Awards 2012, and Globe Travel Awards 2013. You can see more at www.trafalgar.com/usa/awards

How you'll save up to 30% It’s hard to put a price on some parts of a CostSaver vacation, like the little touches that make your vacation easy and hassle-free. But there are some things we can help you compare.

Travel Director

We only work with the best in the business. Your Travel Director is an Insider in your destination, passionate about sharing their favorite part of Europe with you. We personally train and support every one of them, to make sure they are always able to provide exemplary service wherever you are. And they are like your personal concierge, ready with recommendations or help for a worry-free vacation.

Local Guides

On our travels, we’ve met local characters in many cities and destinations around Europe – all eager to share their stories about the places you visit. They know things only a local could, like what it was like to grow up there, and secrets behind the famous sights. Utterly entertaining and proud of their hometowns, we couldn’t resist introducing you to them – so you can hear their personal insights too.

Coach Driver

We only choose the best Coach Drivers and each one has the experience and passion to make your journey smooth and relaxing. Welcoming you on to their coach, they take you from your hotel to the sights. They also help hotel porters look after your luggage, so you don't have to carry it to or from your room.

London Reception Centre team

Our London team is ready to help you with anything you need while you’re staying in the city. They can book you extra hotel nights, theater tickets, day trips and sightseeing attraction tickets. Or just help with any day-to-day needs and questions. And it goes without saying, they’re friendly, knowledgeable and love London. Find out more on page 88.

The locals

Our trips give you plenty of free time to explore each city at your own pace. And that gives you time for those chance encounters with local people which leave a lasting impression, whether it’s over a Guinness in Ireland, sipping Espressos in a chic pavement café in Italy or as you haggle with merchants in Morocco’s medina.

Your companions

One of the nicest surprises our first-time travelers have is the genuine friendships they make. It comes from experiencing Europe with people who share your passion for travel. You explore with English-speaking guests from all over the world, from Australia and South Africa to Asia and the USA. You can even ‘meet’ them virtually through our Facebook page before you go.

Must-see sights and free time To us sightseeing isn’t just about ticking off the attractions. It's about sharing the reasons we love Europe - showing you the secret sides of must-see sights and also giving you freedom to tailor your trip to your budget and tastes. Iconic sights

There are some landmarks you just have to see in Europe. We carefully create our trips to include all the iconic sights and scenery. But we go deeper, with your Travel Director revealing the history and mystery behind each one – and our Local Guides sharing personal stories which add authentic flavor. It could be hearing a Scot telling tales of the famous characters who once called Edinburgh’s New Town home. Or a local from Barcelona pointing out the best eateries as you visit Las Ramblas together. Every experience reveals secrets that make this more than simple sightseeing.

Audio headsets included

You can explore at your own pace, without missing your guide’s insights, with our state-of-the-art audio headsets. We include them on all guided visits and included sightseeing, so you can hear every word with complete clarity, without having to stand by their side to listen.

10

Free time

Not everyone wants exactly the same vacation, so we give you free time to experience your destination your way. Our vacations mix all the benefits of professionally guided sightseeing, with the flexibility to explore independently. And our Travel Directors can help if you want recommendations on how to spend your free time.

Optional Experiences

You can customise your trip with our Optional Experiences – so you only pay for the activities you want to do. Historians could opt for seeing the Catacombs in Rome; culture fans might choose a fiery Flamenco show in Spain; foodies may prefer to experience a Scottish banquet. You can book as many or as few as you want – all directly with your Travel Director by credit card or using your vacation money. Every experience is chosen to complement the rest of your trip – and for being incredible value for money. You can see them all on your chosen trip’s page at www.trafalgar.com

Local dining experiences Everyone's tastes are different, so we mix 'included meals', which make life easy, with free evenings, when your Travel Director can recommend restaurants, giving you the freedom to dine where you choose. Greek Taverna, Athens

Daily breakfasts

Your breakfast is included daily on every CostSaver itinerary. Wake up to a delicious selection of cold buffet favorites, including cereals, croissants and fruit. A traditional cooked breakfast is served while staying in the UK and Ireland.

Included dinners

After a day’s sightseeing, it’s sometimes good to have dinner waiting for you. We include up to half your evening meals, so you can experience Europe’s famous cuisine without having to leave your hotel.

Your choice

Europe’s known for its incredible gastronomy, so we leave your lunches and some dinners free for you to experience it. That means you can join locals in a French bistro, a Spanish tapas bar or perhaps an English pub. Your Travel Director is ready with their personal recommendations – whether you’re looking for value, an authentic setting or to try a specific dish.

Hotel gratuities and porter service are included too, so you don’t have to worry about tip etiquette.

Location and comfort

To make sure we’re always delivering the best value for money, we carefully select hotels in exactly the right location. Sometimes it makes sense to stay centrally, so we do. But at other times, we'll opt for a better hotel slightly further out rather than a less desirable property in town. We pick the right location for each trip - and always make sure your hotel is in a good neighborhood, with transport links an easy walk away.

Our quality guarantee

Our Product team constantly reviews our hotels to make sure they always meet our consistently high standards. And, for added peace of mind, we include the names of hotels in our brochure, so you can see the kind of places you’ll be staying on each trip.

We make sure you never have to wait in line for tickets or check timetables. It doesn’t matter how you’re traveling, we take care of the logistics so you can just enjoy the experience.

When booking a guided vacation including flights, you will be required, at the time of booking, to provide us the full name as detailed on the passport, passport number, date and place of issue for each guest. Changes to flight itineraries and name changes may result in penalties charged by the airline. These are the guest’s responsibility.

All airfares and routings are subject to change at any time until full payment is received and air tickets are issued. Air Cancellation Prior to airline ticketing, a service fee $50 per person and after airline ticketing a service fee of $75 per person, plus any airline imposed penalties which may be up to 100% of the air ticket price, will be charged. If paper tickets are issued, no refund will be made for cancelled air tickets until after the paper tickets are returned to Trafalgar. Nonrefundable tickets cannot be refunded. Please ensure any returned guided vacation document which contains airline tickets is sent by certified or registered mail. Lost ticket replacement can take up to one year and processing fees may be assessed. Airline Availability Seats are limited in our contracted class of service and may not be available on every flight. Trafalgar does not hold block space on any airline and does not assure seat availability for every single guided vacation departure date. Airline Seating Not all airlines offer pre-assigned seats. Some may charge for pre-assigned seats. Any additional charge imposed by airlines will be at guests’ expense. Where pre-assigned seats are not offered or different seats are desired, guests must contact airline(s) direct to arrange seating assignments. Seating is solely under the airline’s control, as are itinerary changes due to flight delays and schedule changes. Trafalgar reserves the right to offer alternative schedules for itineraries affected by airline schedule changes and equipment. Flight delays, flight cancellation and schedule changes are the responsibility of the airline. Trafalgar will not be responsible or liable for such delays or rescheduling.

Airline Special Requests Seat assignment and special meal requests can be requested at time of booking. Trafalgar does not assure the request will be granted. Frequent Flyer miles can be accrued on most air carriers. Upgrades using mileage is not permitted. Many airlines do not automatically add frequent flyer numbers to records for flights booked and ticketed by Trafalgar. It is therefore the guest responsibility to request frequent flyer credit from the airline. Trafalgar shall not be responsible for matters concerning frequent flyer miles.

Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for their welfare and supervision. Trafalgar seeks to provide a safe, enjoyable and memorable travel experience for all guests. Trafalgar welcomes guests with special needs or disabilities.

Please note the following: • Guests must advise Trafalgar, in advance, as early as possible, of any physical, medical or other special needs that require accommodating. Trafalgar will make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices and procedures when necessary, unless doing so will fundamentally alter the nature of the services provided. • Guests must ensure they are medically and physically able to travel. • Trafalgar may impose safety requirements. Trafalgar may exclude an individual from participating in a guided vacation or an activity if the individual’s participation poses a direct threat to health or safety of others that cannot be eliminated by a reasonable modification of policies, practices or procedures or by the provision of auxiliary aids and services. This decision to exclude an individual will be based on an individualized assessment based on reasonable judgment that relies on current medical evidence or on the best available objective evidence to determine the nature, duration and severity of the risk, the probability that potential injury will occur and whether reasonable modifications of policies, practices or procedures will mitigate the risk. • Trafalgar does not provide personal devices (such as wheelchairs, hearing aids or prescription eye glasses) or services of a personal nature (such as eating, toileting or dressing). A traveler who requires services of a personal nature (eating, toileting or dressing, as examples) should consider bringing a companion to provide such assistance and must understand that other travelers, Travel Directors and Trafalgar Staff will not be available for such purpose. • Regrettably, motorized scooters are not allowed on guided vacations. Trafalgar does not employ medical personnel. Any necessary medical attention must be sought at a local facility, if available, at the guest’s expense. Trafalgar is not responsible or liable for losses or costs incurred due to unavailability of medical services, or medical services obtained while on vacation, or for the quality of the care or services received. Some guided vacations include rough terrain, extensive walking over cobblestone streets, uneven pavement, steps and locations which may not be easily accessible or accessible by wheelchair. During the guided vacation, Trafalgar may make arrangements with carriers, hotels and other independent suppliers to provide travel services. These parties are independent entities which Trafalgar does not control. Accommodations on international guided vacations may differ from those in the United States. Trafalgar cannot guarantee disability access or accommodations for guests traveling on international guided vacations. Many Optional Experiences are operated by independent third party suppliers, not Trafalgar. These are not part of the package vacation provided by us. Your contract will be with the operator of the experience. We are not responsible for providing of the experience, or anything that happens during the experience. Some experiences involve outdoor activities and/or can be physically demanding. You must make your own decisions about experiences and participate only in activities that suit your physical ability. We recommend you check whether any insurance you have also includes your participation in adventure activities you may undertake. Trafalgar may, in its sole discretion, decline booking any guest or remove any guest who cannot comply or refuses to comply with Trafalgar’s terms and conditions. Behavior We are here to provide the best services possible but in doing so we will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behavior from our Guests. We will refuse to deal with and may terminate the vacation of people who assault Trafalgar Representatives or who continue to be verbally abusive or aggressive when asked to behave reasonably. When you make a booking, you accept responsibility for the proper conduct of all members of your party during your stay. We reserve the right at any time to terminate the travel arrangements and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behavior, in the reasonable opinion of us or our suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property. Full cancellation charges will apply and no refund will be made. We shall have no obligation to pay compensation or meet any costs or expenses (including but not limited to alternative accommodations and return transportation arrangements) guest may incur as a result of the travel arrangements being terminated. If you damage the accommodations in which you are staying or any property, you must reimburse the accommodations provider or property owner concerned for the cost of the damage before the end of your stay if the cost has been established by then or as soon as it has been established if later. You must indemnify us for the full amount of any claim (also including legal costs) made against us. Criminal proceedings may be instigated. Trafalgar is not responsible for any costs incurred concerning a guest removed from a guided vacation or aircraft, ship or train. Guests agree not to hold Trafalgar or any of its related entities liable for any actions taken under these terms and conditions. Young Traveler Discount The Young Traveler must be under age 18 on the vacation departure date, and must be accompanied by an adult, sharing a twin room. The Young Traveler must be the specified age at the start of travel to be eligible for the discount. Only one Young Traveler discount per room. This discount cannot be combined with our Travel With Family and Friends Discount. Please see our ’Savings’ pages for details. Itinerary Variations Trafalgar strives to improve guided vacation itineraries, services and features. If improvements can be made, or if circumstances beyond our control make changes necessary, we reserve the right to vary itineraries and to substitute hotels. At certain peak periods multiple departures may operate, sometimes in reverse order; hotels may vary from those stated on the itinerary pages. On guided vacations which include cruises, the ship may be changed for operational reasons. Departures in early and late season are potentially operated in cool weather conditions. As a result, itinerary variations may occur. Certain activities may not be precisely as described or may not be available due to seasonality or weather conditions. We try to notify you or your Travel Agent of changes. If your enjoyment may be diminished by such limitations, please check with us or your Travel Agent before making a reservation. Trafalgar’s ‘Be My Guest’ experiences are unique and take place in singular exclusive locations. In the unlikely event that our local hosts are unable to welcome Trafalgar guests, Trafalgar will attempt to find an alternate experience or a highlight meal will be provided in place of the ‘Be My Guest’ experience. Holidays & Changes During local or national holidays, certain facilities such as museums, sightseeing trips and shopping may be limited or unavailable. In such instances itinerary changes are made by Trafalgar seeking to reduce inconvenience to guests. Such changes are deemed not to be a major change to the itinerary, and no compensation will be payable to guests. Vacations, closing days and other circumstances may necessitate a change of the day of the week for scheduled highlight dinners, sightseeing or other activities. If, you feel your enjoyment might be diminished by any of these circumstances please check with the respective national tourist office before selecting a specific departure date. Extended stays If you arranged with us to remain at a destination before or after your guided vacation, your stay will be at your sole expense as is the transfer to either the hotel or airport. Please see the ‘Extend Your Stay in Gateway Cities’ section for a list of pre and post guided vacation accommodations. Space is limited and if available is for up to three nights before and/or after each guided vacation. Breakfast and luggage handling is not included unless otherwise noted. Trafalgar does not provide complimentary transfers for guests booking pre-and post-night accommodations. However, inexpensive airport transfers can be purchased from Trafalgar. If your extra night accommodations is not the hotel where your guided vacation begins or ends, you will be responsible for your transfer arrangements at your own expense. For your comfort Trafalgar operates a daily seat rotation system and enforces a strict no smoking and no alcohol policy on board motorcoaches. Regular comfort stops are made on traveling days. Many hotels, restaurants, trains, cruises and other venues are 100% smoke free.

Guided Vacation Cancellation Trafalgar reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any guided vacation departure in any circumstances, including in accordance with operating requirements or circumstances beyond its control. If cancellation is made by Trafalgar any time prior to departure date of the guided vacation except when you failed to pay the final balance on time, Trafalgar will either refund the amount received for the guided vacation booking, or offer a comparable vacation if available. (Trafalgar will refund any difference in price if the alternative is of a lower price however, the Guest will be responsible for additional costs if the alternative is priced higher.)
