Links Round the World Every year Jetset invests in technology which contributes to time and cost efficiency to the mutual benefit of our agents and clients. Our constant growth and development widen the range of product and Jetset’s ability to offer unbeatable value. The Jetset Electronic Travel System - JETS, gives you easy access to airline fares Round the World and instantly available accommodation on Landlink’s many thousands of hotels, sightseeing excursions, coach tours and transfers. Our Travel Guide and Website www.jetsetholidays.com provide you with up to the minute information that will help you save your valuable time in the planning and operational processes when responding to dynamic holiday requests from your clients.

Jetset Authorised Agents We have compiled a list on our website of our active Authorised Travel Agents through the UK who are committed to recommending Jetset. We know you will help our mutual clients benefit from your local knowledge in getting to the destination and with the product selection to match their individual requirements. Jetset’s innovative and creative travel packages, including RTW Holidays, Escorted Motorcoach Tours, Self-drive Tours, City Breaks, Attractions. Transfers and Sightseeing JETS gives you easy access to virtually unlimited flight connections worldwide, and our hotel Reservations Service features over 5000 hotels from Anchorage to Zurich and from Australia to Zimbabwe.

The Jetset World Our world may seem to be ‘getting smaller ’... it certainly has become easier to explore with so many possibilities to travel from country to country... continent to continent. At Jetset we are always exploring ways to improve and by taking responsibility for our actions we are seeking to reduce our own carbon footprint. Our company environmental policy is available to view on our website www.jetsetholidays.com One of the ways we are endeavouring to reduce wastage is through the use of our technological advances, and in particular embracing the worldwide web. Online you will find accommodation in our wordwide programme of cities and resorts, fares and ticketing, airport transfers, sightseeing excursions, and coach tours, thus reducing the need to produce thousands of brochures each year with prices which can be out of date before they are printed. We believe that the independent traveller is much more sophisticated and happier to view up to the minute information and prices in a web format, rather than sift through brochures while agents still need to confirm availability and prices adjusted for the latest surcharges or special discounts.

Flexible Tailor-Made Holidays This Travel Guide highlights a number of holiday ideas which have proved to be the most popular time and time again, particularly with our first time travellers, but these can be still be tailored to meet everyone's personal requirements. For seasoned travellers you can simply choose flights, add their choice of accommodation, and any tours... either escorted or independent, even the mode of transportation.

Putting it altogether... FOR THE PERFECT HOLIDAY Deciding which way to fly around the world is an exciting prospect.

Room Grading & Facilities There are no universally accepted grading systems for all the accommodation in the countries featured by Jetset. So we personally grade hotels to help you with your selection. These ratings range from basic to good value accommodation to truly world class hotels offering the ultimate in luxury. The following is offered as a guide, and is shown by each hotel: g

Budget accommodation with limited facilities

gg

Comfortable, well maintained, value for those travelling through the area for a night or two

ggg

Usually higher standard, modern or exceptionally maintained older property, average economy

gggg

A deluxe property offering exemplary standards and service with a wide range of facilities

ggggg Amongst the world’s best hotels, elegant, attractive and invariably in an impressive location We also show some of the hotel facilities as follows:.

Our flexible approach means treating everyone’s requirements individually, rather than ‘one style fits all’... so it is little wonder why so many British Travellers choose Jetset. If there’s one thing that people at Jetset appreciate, it’s the fact that everyone has different ideas on what makes a good holiday. That’s why we don’t believe in limiting horizons. At Jetset we cater for all tastes, lifestyles and budgets. Whatever your client is looking for, we’ll do our best to help you find it!

Accommodation

Discovery Stays & Excursions

Australian Visa

We offer a superb selection of hotel rooms, suites and apartments around the world. Whether budget hotels or luxury establishments, they meet the high standards of comfort and service expected by Jetset travellers. Some destinations have a complex pricing policy varying as many as 6 to 10 times between high and low seasons.

Throughout the Travel Guide we have detailed a wide range of our most popular excursions and some unusual ones too. They are pre-bookable and we advise you to confirm all excursions prior to your clients travelling to avoid any disappointment. Our range of Discovery Stays includes transfers, excursions and accommodation, enabling independent travellers to experience more in a short space of time.

Don’t forget that all British passport holders need a visa to enter Australia, and the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) can be arranged by our operations team for only £10. Simply fill in the form online and post the copy of the photo page of your passport and the Jetset booking reference to Jetset Visa Service, Cresta House, 32 Victoria Street, Altrincham, Cheshire WA14 1ET.

For this reason we have given the price indicators of an extra night’s stay - this enables you to compare hotel value, or, indeed, appreciate the benefit of staying a few extra nights. If your clients have a favourite hotel that we don’t appear to feature, just let us know. We have access to many other hotels not presented in this guide or on our website as they may not have a real time connection enabled for availability checks and we may need to book ‘offline’ .

Holiday Styles & Experiences Australia and New Zealand, like the United States and Canada, are renowned for their outdoor lifestyles which are reflected in the range of outdoor activities and facilities available. Clients may prefer to do a self drive tour with a Motorhome, or take one of the Classic Themed Coach tours through Mother Nature’s Finest Discover areas of the world that are beautiful, unusual, stunning and varied such as Wave Rock in Western Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and Cape Tribulation, the majestic Ayers Rock & Olgas, South Island Nature Trail in New Zealand, the Canadian Rocky Mountaineer train through the majestic Rockies or a visit to Yellowstone Park. See Mickey & Minnie in Disneyland, the magic of the Far East or simple sounds of a day ending on a South Pacific Island.

Long Haul Specialists for 40 Years

Land Only Arrangements If you’ve made separate flight arrangements, we can still offer you a selection of hotels and tours which we call ‘Land Only’ arrangements. Everything is booked before your clients leave the UK so they can relax on holiday, knowing there's ‘room in the Inn’ when they arrive. A £10 booking fee will be charged to cover the cost of arrangements under £150.

Guaranteed Pricing Policy At Jetset we fully recognise the importance of the price of a holiday. We pride ourselves in offering the best available prices on all itineraries combining scheduled air fares and land arrangements and we will never knowingly be beaten on price for the same flight or itinerary. If your clients pay in full at the time of booking, we also guarantee that they will only pay the price fixed at that time. If, after paying the deposit, an airline increases its fares, we will contact you and our clients will be given the option of paying the original price within 7 days or paying the new price. Although the price indications in this guide were accurate at the time of printing, we will continually update prices on our website www.jetsetholidays.com

Insurance No one should travel without it! We recommend Citybond Insurance arrangements which covers cancellation and curtailment of your holiday, lost luggage, delays, public liability and personal health regardless of age. They can be contacted on 0800 093 4647 and quote CRE06.

Honeymoons & Special Occasions Let us help you plan a honeymoon to include those extra touches that help make the holiday of a lifetime. We can help make any occasion from birthdays to anniversaries more memorable by choosing pre-booked sparkling wines, flowers and fruit to upgrades or special side-trips. Whatever the indulgence - just ask.

Your Financial Protection The air holiday packages in this brochure are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our ATOL number is ATOL 3200. Please see our booking conditions for more information. The price of our air holiday packages includes the amount of £1 per person as part of the ATOL Protection Contribution (APC) we pay to the CAA. This charge is included in our advertised prices. ATOL Protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services in this brochure. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking.

Scheduled flight flexibility allows your clients to plan their holidays to suit themselves with the advantage of choosing the routes, dates and timings they want, for as long as they want, stopping where they want.

Comfort and style A holiday should start the moment your client steps on board their flight so it is important the journey is enjoyable and comfortable. As you would expect, our key airline partners are world class and we are proud to work with key airlines such as Qantas, Emirates, American, Virgin, Continental, KLM, United, Lufthansa, Air France, Delta and BMI to name a few which offer numerous connections making multi-centre holidays easily accessible.

Flights Fares and Flexibility Deciding where to fly will be an exciting prospect for most holidaymakers and scheduled flight flexibility will allow you to help plan your clients' holiday with the advantage of choosing routes by combining domestic and international flights to create multi-centre opportunities often for little or no additional cost. For example you could recommend the westward route to your clients via Los Angeles and Fiji to New Zealand before arriving at Australia. They could fly back home via Hong Kong, Bali, Bangkok or Singapore! Or could return from Australia using the same outward route, but this time stop in Hawaii! They might even wish to visit Johannesburg, Delhi or Toronto! We have highlighted a few fares available with some of our main airline partners at the time of going to press to give you an indication of costs. We also have reduced fares from local airports, AirPasses for bargain flights within Australia & New Zealand and a comprehensive range of airfares with over 100 airlines which we will check before offering

Holiday Planning Service available free on 0845 02 57 757

you a final itinerary to ensure the best prices in a constantly changing and competitive marketplace. Many destinations are served by regional airports via Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester. Many connecting flights via Amsterdam, Paris or Frankfurt are free.

Break Your Journey With a Stopover A Stopover is a great way of enhancing the holiday and leaving the traveller feeling refreshed ready for the next leg of the journey. Why not recommend another place on the journey home? Not only does it give your clients the opportunity to see another country, but it postpones getting home for a few extra days!

Special Discounted Air Fares Some of our scheduled airlines will offer lower fares in exchange for limited flexibility, and higher amendment and cancellation fees. Full payment, will be required to guarantee the holiday price involving this sort of fare. We will advise regarding deposits and fare rules at the time of booking.

Flight Upgrades Although our holidays are based on economy class seating, Jetset has access to many special rates for premium economy, business and first class travel. The flight upgrades will provide a larger seating area in separate cabins on board the aircraft, often exclusive check-in facilities and airport lounges, as well as superior meals and beverages.

Chinta Air Tours Chinta Tours is based in Ceduna, South Australia, and began when two local farmers realised that the region has stunning scenery that is relatively unknown. With access to light aircraft, the couple began organising tours to the Eyre Peninsula, the Outback and the Nullarbor. The advantage of using their own aircraft with selected pilots and guides, means that vast distances are reduced to comfortable flights, while still allowing you to enjoy the changing scenery.

They combine all kinds of transport to ensure that you see the maximum amount of scenery and the most diverse range of experiences in a reasonable amount of time.

AUSTRALIA is a land of vast diversity. The world’s largest island covers an area of almost three million square miles. It incorporates vibrant modern cities, lush tropical rainforests, stunning beaches, arid deserts, coral-fringed islands. A single destination which encompasses every imaginable type of holiday from the adventurous exploration of the Outback to relaxation along a pristine beach, from the Red Centre’s huge monoliths and rugged gorges to the sophistication of cosmopolitan cities. A relaxed and easy-going lifestyle. Great value for money. It has to be AUSTRALIA.

Climate

Wine and Dine

Money Matters

Any day, anywhere you will find the right climate conditions that will make your Australian experience memorable.

The fusion of differing cultures in the cities and towns of Australia means the entire spectrum of global cuisines are at your fingertips. Fruits, salads, fish, beef and lamb are abundant staples of Australian life. Tasty seafood dishes to rival anything in the world are increasingly available. Tap water is safe to drink and of a good standard, Australian beer is always served well chilled and is popular with tourist and locals alike, and Australian wines have a fantastic reputation worldwide.

In Australia the currency is Australian Dollars (AUD). Credit cards are widely accepted including American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa. Currency exchange is available at banks, hotels and international airports. There is a goods and services tax on purchases (10%) but you may claim this and the Wine Equalisation Tax when departing the country.

Shopping

Firstly, you will need a valid full ten year passport that will still be valid for at least six months after your scheduled return. Let Jetset issue your Electronic Travel Authority if you are a EU passport holder.

The Australian summer from December to February is warm and sunny and you can enjoy lazy days on the beach and typical Aussie meals cooked on the barbecue. Summer is the rainy season in the tropical regions in the north that bring lush rainforests to life. Spring and autumn are mild and are the best seasons for bush walks and discovering nature. The Australian winter June to August is generally mild, but offers snow in the southern mountains. At the same time our northern states have balmy 24° Celsius temperatures. No matter where you are in Australia or what season it is, always remember your factor 30+ sunscreen. The Australian sun can be quite strong, so it’s best to wear a shirt and put on a hat while enjoying the great outdoors.

18

Shopping plays a large part of travelling. Whether you are shopping or sightseeing, there is always a place to shop or purchase souvenirs. In Australia you are covered by Australia’s consumer protection laws which require businesses to treat you fairly.

www.jetsetholidays.com

Travel Tips

Australia has laws that are in place to protect you, locals and the environment. These laws prevent anyone entering Australia with drugs, steroids, weapons, firearms, and protected wildlife. Some common items are prohibited too. These include

fresh or packaged food, fruit, eggs, meat, vegetables and seeds. Public transport is available at all airports for your convenience. Though after a long flight you may prefer a transfer to be prebooked, or even have a meet and greet service pre-booked, ask Jetset to arrange this for you. Car hire or campervan hire is recommended and driving is on the left. It’s a good idea to pre-book your accommodation before your arrival, as last minute accommodation can be very hard to find.

Major Events Accommodation may be especially difficult to find at these times, although we at Jetset have huge reserves of accommodation for your benefit, however, you may find prices are inflated and availability very tight, unless you book early: 19th July 2008 Australia vs South Africa, Ruby International, Perth 26th July2008 Australia vs All Blacks Rugby International, Sydney 5th-27th September 2008 AFL Grand Final Series, Melbourne 11th-18th October 2008 Alice Springs Masters Games 1st-8th November 2008 Melbourne Cup Race Meeting 29th December-2nd January 2009 New Years Eve Celebrations, Sydney 19th January-1st February 2009, Australian Open Tennis, Melbourne 7th-28th February 2009 Mardi Gras, Sydney 13th-15th March 2009 Australian Grand Prix, Melbourne

Day 2: Wilpena Pound Day at leisure at Wilpena Pound covering 83 square kilometres in the more remote, undeveloped northern section of the Flinders Ranges, 400 kilometres north of Adelaide. Wilpena Pound rises as an immense, crater-like fusion of stark purple ridges and overhanging bluffs, strewn with tough and colourful vegetation, in jarring contrast to the flatness of the surrounding plains. The interior of the Pound has been a stamping-ground for hiking enthusiasts for decades. The kangaroos and euros (small wallaby-like marsupials) bound between rampantly yellow wattle trees (in spring). Pampas grass, wildflowers (the best blooming season is spring) and other flora making for a scene reminiscent of the ‘lost world’. In season you’ll find the brilliant reds and pinks of Sturt’s Desert Pea, Flinders Ranges Bottlebrush, Hopbush and Sturt’s Desert Rose.

Australia’s third largest island is a paradise for wildlife, and the must-see attraction of South Australia. It measures nearly 320 miles around its coastline and is a fabulous place to explore, whether you visit for a day, overnight or even longer.

Day 3: Wilpena Pound to Parachilna Depart Wilpena today and head north to the small outback town of Parachilna, about one and a half hours away. Parachilna has an official population of just seven but its remoteness adds to the pleasure of its one and only hotel. The Prairie Hotel is truly an oasis on the plains of the Flinders Ranges, some of the most ancient and fascinating formations on earth. From the hotel, you can enjoy magnificent views of both the Ranges and the vast red desert plains sweeping toward Lake Torrens. Inside the hotel, you’ll find great character, charm and creature comforts – topped off with superb cuisine. All this is only 30 minutes drive from the famous Parachilna and Brachina Gorges of the Flinders Ranges National Park. Overnight: Prairie Hotel. Day 4: Parachilna to Clare Valley Leave the lovely town of Parachilna this morning and head south to the Clare Valley. Irish immigrants originally settled the area, and today it is the centre for an important pastoral industry and home to many acclaimed cool climate wines. The region consists of seven small valleys, which are the northern section of the Mt. Lofty Ranges. Overnight: Clare Country Club.

Self Drive (4 days/3 nights)

13 Days Small Group 4WD Experience from Broome (13 days/12 nights)

Day 1: Perth to Busselton (140 miles) Collect your rental car and drive out of Perth heading just a few hours south of Perth, this region has a long history as the easily accessible coastal playground for Western Australians, the superb coastline, climate and national parks combine with the enormous range of visitor facilities and attractions on offer. The seaside town of Busselton is nestled along the wide sandy shores of Geographe Bay. Protected from prevailing winds, the calm beaches of the Bay are popular with fishermen, scuba divers and snorkellers. Overnight: Broadwater Beach Resort (Hotel Room) Day 2: Busselton to Margaret River (30 miles) A leisurely drive through the rolling farm lands of the south west hinterland, will put you on the edge of the world-famous vineyards of Margaret River. Now is the time to discard your watch and relax. Settle into local time and explore some of the local wineries, before cruising into the wine heartland of Margaret River. The Margaret River wine region is relatively compact and very easy to navigate. Make your first stop the visitors’ centre in the main street, where you will find maps along with some tips on some of the local gourmet dining secrets. Then take a drive – via a few wineries – to the local chocolate or fudge factory and stock up on some of these luxuries. Nestled between farmlands and the coast, Margaret River is spoiled with top quality farm produce, fresh seafood, and the local specialty – Marron a tasty little crustacean. Overnight: Comfort Inn Grange on Farrelly. Day 3: Margaret River to Pemberton (85 miles) Pemberton is a relaxing drive from Margaret River on good sealed roads. Yet while relatively nearby, it is like being in a different country. There’s something about the gentle light and the forest air that sets the tiny timber town of Pemberton apart. The folk of Pemberton have made a living from the magnificent King Karri trees that create an awesome backdrop to just about every scene. Now, as the timber industry is turning to plantation timber, the reliance on the forest is dwindling and the industries of wine production and tourism are taking over as the lifeblood of the town. Pemberton is well on the way to becoming a premium cool climate wine region and there are many wineries open for tastings and some include cafes and restaurants of a high standard. Overnight: Forest Lodge Resort (Deluxe Guest House Room – Includes Full Breakfast) Day 4: Pemberton to Perth (200 miles) Make the Gloucester Tree lookout the first stop on your way back to Perth, climb the pegs to the top of the impossibly tall tree for a commanding view of the forest. If you’re feeling peckish, refuel at your choice of the many cottage-style restaurants in the area, all offering excellent gourmet meals or simple, country fare. Then spend the afternoon exploring some of the trails and tracks leading into the forest, remembering to keep a sharp lookout for native wildlife that inhabits the area. The southern forests share the same weather and soil composition as Margaret River, and produce some sensational wines. Many of the wineries are family owned and operated, so you’ll find the service personal and friendly. It’s not uncommon to be greeted by the owner, who will be happy to provide samples of their wines and show you around. Take a few bottles away to enjoy back in Perth, about a four and a half hour drive away. Drop your rental car off and continue with your onward travel arrangements or stopover in Perth for more nights.

Day 1: Broome, Prison Tree, Gibb River Road, Tunnel Creek, Windjana Gorge Depart Broome at 7.00 am, travel to remarkable Tunnel Creek, a 750 metre-long natural tunnel carved through the Napier Range. At Windjana Gorge, where sheer cliffs tower above white sands, see the ancient marine fossils embedded in the gorge walls. Continue to our exclusive wilderness camp in Ngarinyin country. Two Night Stay: EXCLUSIVE! Imintji Wilderness Camp. Stay in the comfort of our permanent campsite. (L D) Day 2: Bell Gorge, Hiking and Swimming We travel through Outback landscapes to Bell Gorge, where rugged cliffs surround a series of tiered waterholes.

Climate The north of New Zealand is subtropical and the south temperate. The warmest months are December, January and February, and the coldest June, July and August. In summer, the average maximum temperature ranges between 20-30ºC and in winter between 10-15ºC. The top of the North Island is subtropical, whereas the South Island has extensive snow falls during winter, especially on the Southern Alps.

Wine and Dine When it comes to food, every region of New Zealand has its specialties. Northland has awardwinning cheeses and subtropical fruit. Rotorua is the place for a hangi - a traditional Maori feast cooked in an underground oven. Marlborough is the place for scallops and green lipped mussels and Canterbury serves up the very best rack of lamb. The concept of regional specialties also applies to wine: Gisborne is known as the

56

chardonnay capital of New Zealand and Marlborough is sauvignon blanc country, while Central Otago is excelling itself in the pinot noir department. New Zealand has excellent water supplies and in all cases tap water is fresh and safe to drink.

Shopping New Zealand offers a huge variety of shopping from arts and craft markets, galleries and museum shops to exclusive designer stores. For traditional New Zealand souvenirs look for examples of superb Maori carvings in wood, bone and pounamu (greenstone or jade). You can also find jewellery and ornaments made from the iridescent paua shell (abalone), treasured by Maori for centuries.

www.jetsetholidays.com

Money Matters In New Zealand the currency is New Zealand Dollars (NZD). Credit cards are widely accepted. Currency exchange is available at banks, some hotels and international airports. All goods and services are subject to a 12.5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) included in the displayed price. Visitors cannot claim this tax back; however when a supplier ships a major purchase to a visitor's home address the GST will not be charged.

Travel Tips All visitors to New Zealand must carry a passport that is valid for at least three months beyond the date you intend to leave the country. Most visitors who intend to stay for less than three months do not require a visa. New Zealand is free of many insect pests, plant diseases and animal infections that are common elsewhere in the world. Therefore, substantial fines may be incurred if you arrive with these prohibited materials: Fresh,

perishable foodstuffs, such as fruit, vegetables and meat. An extensive network of air, train and road services means most places can be reached by public transport, however New Zealand is perfect self-drive territory, the roads are good and driving is on the left.

Major Events Accommodation may be especially difficult to find at these times, although we at Jetset have huge reserves of accommodation for your benefit, however, you may find prices are inflated and availability very tight, unless you book early:

It's a good idea to book your accommodation in advance, especially during the busy summer period - from December to February.

What they all share is a real commitment to personalised service, a high standard of facilities, and excellent value. You can choose self catering or bed & breakfast accommodation.

This will be delivered to you at a time to suit your plans for the day. Golden Chain members care about your comfort and are committed to quality assurance.

review by Qualmark, New Zealand’s official tourism industry quality assurance agency. Independent, professional assessors visit annually, ensuring minimum requirements are met.

THE PACIFIC OCEAN, the very words conjure up pictures of paradise islands, sparkling water-kissed beaches, secluded bays, a relaxed laid-back style and friendly islanders. The many different groups of islands offer a multitude of places to stop en route to Australia, New Zealand and on round the world itineraries. With their beautiful coral lagoons, white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees and lush mountain interiors the Pacific islands are a once in a lifetime dream holiday destination.

THE COOK ISLANDS Climate

Fiji enjoys an ideal South Sea tropical climate and can get hot in the summer but seldom reaches above 35° Celsius; the season for tropical rains is from December through February coinciding with the warmest summer months.

Samoa’ climate is tropical all year round, with two distinct seasons – the dry season running from May to October and the wet season from November to April.

Warmth and sunshine can be enjoyed year-round in the Cook Islands. Severe weather is rare and infrequent, the drier cooler season runs from April to November. The warmer, more humid season runs from December to March

Wine and Dine

In Samoan culture food is a social event that brings together family and friends to share the bountiful wonders nature has provided, hotels offer traditional Samoan food, usually at their Fiafia nights, with traditional buffets and entertainment. It is recommended that bottled water is drank in Samoa.

Wine and Dine

Shopping

The local Punanga Nui marketplace comes alive every Saturday from 6am-midday, if you’re looking for a souvenir to take home or some local food to try, then this is the place for you! Local handicrafts, pareus (sarongs), t-shirts, ukeleles, tivaivai (local quilts) local produce, carvings and the most romantic souvenir of them all, the Cook Islands Black Pearl are all available for purchase.

Fiji’s best known outdoor cooking experience is the Lovo, an underground oven of heated rocks cooking a variety of foods wrapped in banana leaves for several hours with a faintly smoky flavour. Fresh water in the major towns has been treated and is safe to drink from the tap, check with your chosen resort about the tap water.

Wine and Dine

Shopping

Shopping in Samoa has an appeal of its own, with a variety of colours, artefacts, traditional fare and bartering!

In Fiji, you’ll discover unique cultural and historical artefacts, stylish international boutique fashions as well as budget gift and souvenir shops.

Travel Tips

Travel Tips Fiji welcomes visitors; a valid passport for at least six months beyond the intended period of stay and a ticket for return or onward travel is a must. Entry visas are granted on arrival for a stay of 4 months or less for UK nationals

Money Matters The currency of Fiji is the Fijian Dollar, money can be changed at the Airport, banks and some hotels. Credit cards are accepted in most shops and restaurants.

Heavenly Islands of the Pacific

Visitors to Samoa are not required to obtain an entry permit for stays of less than 30 days, however you must have a return or onward ticket and your passport must be valid for six months of more at the time of entry into the country. A departure tax of ST$40 applies to all travellers over the age of 12 years (approx £9)

Money Matters The Samoa decimal currency is the Tala (dollar). All major foreign currencies are exchangeable in Samoa. Samoa Tala can also be purchased outside the country from selected banks, however you will need to check with your bank if you can order some before you depart. Credit cards are widely accepted in the major hotels, restaurants and stores.

Experience an Island night feast & cultural show which is offered at the most of the major hotels. The fare on offer is a tantalising mixture of local meats, seafood & vegetables.

Shopping

Travel Tips Stays of up to 31 days require a valid passport and a return ticket only. There is a local departure tax of NZD30 (approx £13) this must be paid upon departure, and is not included as part of prepaid taxes with airline tickets. Fruits and plants are not allowed into the country.

THE FAR EAST THE FAR EAST and the Orient are areas that conjure up a myriad of images; from a swaying palm tree backing a white sandy beach on a secluded island off the coast of Thailand, to the high rise hustle and bustle of the most modern cities in the world, such as Tokyo or Singapore. It really is a land of contrasts; the climate can go from idyllic blue skies with scarcely a breath of wind to Pacific typhoons battering the coasts of China and Korea.

Travel Tips

The climate of South East Asia is mainly tropical; it is hot and humid all year round. The Orient is more seasonal with distinct cold winter periods in Japan, Korea and China. Pacific storms or typhoons occur year round, but are more prevalent in June to October.

Visas are not required to visit most countries in South East Asia for up to 30 days. However, British nationals require visas to enter Mainland China, but not Hong Kong. You should generally have six months remaining on your passport if you are considering a visit to the Far East. Visas are required for UK nationals entering Indonesia; a tourist visa can be obtained on arrival for a specific short period.

Shopping

Wine and Dine The food of South East Asia and the Orient is one of the major attractions of the area. From the spicy tastes of Thai and Malay foods, through to the refined, delicate flavours of Japanese and Korean food. Chinese food varies enormously through its many regions; a lot of influences from China have spread throughout the region. Western food is also now generally available across the Far East. Each country has its own locally produced beers and liquors, many wines are made from grains such as rice and have a taste very different to vine based wines.

This regions shopping spans the great divide from the high tech gadgets of Japan through to the bustling market stalls of Bali. Each country has a real diversity in the range of goods that are available. The region has a great reputation for tailors, suits can be made to measure in some Asian cities within a few hours. There are large shopping malls that would rival those in America in places like Thailand and the Philippine. The spice markets of Singapore’s Little India bring the senses to life and create a heady atmosphere far removed from the more western experiences of the Orchard Road.

THE CARIBBEAN

CURRENCY

Jetset have brochured the following destinations: Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, St. Lucia, St. Kitts, The British Virgin Islands, Tobago, The Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Cuba. We can provide single centre holidays to all of these destinations, and can match all destinations with the exception of Cuba to a variety of stopover cities in the USA to make your own choice of twin or even multi-centre itineraries.

The Caribbean has a variety of local currencies. Most countries accept US Dollars, US travellers’ cheques are recommended (banks often give a better exchange rate than hotels.) In tourist areas and larger towns you will find cash machines (ATMs) that accept major credit cards and dispense local cash at favourable exchange rates.

HEALTH & SAFETY No vaccinations are required when visiting the Caribbean. The Caribbean is a vast region including different countries that vary widely in number of inhabitants, social economic development and standard of living. Whilst the region is politically stable and generally safe, travellers are advised to take the usual precautions and take care of personal belongings. All visitors are recommended to take out travel insurance before their departure.

CLIMATE

FOOD The Caribbean has an enormously varied cuisine, with foods and cooking styles that have come to the region from around the world. From classy restaurants with the finest food in the world; to standing with sand under your toes and a burger at a beach barbecue. Go out for a meal and you can find yourself eating on a deck built over the ocean or with the backdrop of a tropical rainforest. Many chefs have trained overseas before returning home to fuse new ideas with the best of traditional island cuisine but you can always sample local dishes – spicy West Indian stews and soups, créole cookery and exotic vegetables such as yams, cassava and okra.

The Caribbean region benefits from excellent weather conditions all year round, with average temperatures of 80/85° F (27/31°C). From May to November the weather is wetter and the air more humid. The rainy season, however, varies slightly from one country to another with the rainfall in short, sharp bursts. High temperatures are usual throughout this period.

There are many varieties of fruit, from bananas at their best to fresh coconuts and juicy mangoes, which make refreshing drinks between sampling the local cocktails, rums and beers. Many of the all-inclusive hotels we offer will do room only or bed & breakfast rates if you prefer, please ask for details.

As in all tropical climates, extreme weather conditions can prevail. Atmospheric pressure generally experienced in the Atlantic can cause tropical depressions, some of which develop into tropical storms each year from June to November. Only a few of these are classified as hurricanes. Statistically, more than 80% of all tropical storms occur during mid-September and through modern satellite tracking facilities the risk of experiencing a hurricane is greatly reduced.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NUNAVUT

The United States has everything you could possibly want in a holiday destination. There are tropical beaches fringed by palm trees; wooded hills, valleys and canyons perfect for hiking and exploring; bustling cities with some of the most memorable and instantly recognisable landmarks in the world; wide open roads to explore in fantastic self-drive country or just sit back and watch the country go by on an escorted coach tour. There is cruising from the ports of Florida, California, New York and Washington State. The vast size of the country makes twin and three centre holidays a great way to explore; many airlines allow two free stopovers to enable you to explore the vast range of attractions this country has to offer. The USA is an ideal holiday destination with something for everybody – discover it through Jetset Holidays.

Climate The USA experiences every sort of climate, as you would imagine from such a huge land mass; from the tropical heat of Florida to the severe winters of the Great Lakes and the Rockies. The west coast is more Mediterranean in climate, the Deep South is pleasant in the winter, but can be oppressively hot in the summer.

produced, followed by Washington State, Oregon and New York. America is the fourth largest wine producer and the biggest outside Europe. American beer tends to be light in colour and served chilled, though many more micro breweries are producing more interesting ales that are well worth sampling.

Wine and Dine

Shopping

The food in the USA is far more enticing than the hamburgers, hot dogs and fries you may imagine! Sophisticated restaurants are spread all over the country, serving cuisines from throughout the world to a very high standard. Regional varieties of cuisine are inevitable through such a huge country, from the barbecue of the south, to the seafood and chowders of New England; the steaks of the Midwest and the Pacific Rim influences of California and Hawaii.

Over 90% of visitors to the USA go shopping, now the most popular activity whilst in the States. With the current favourable exchange rates, many items are half the price of their UK equivalent. Wherever in the USA you travel there are large comfortable malls, funky downtown stores or specialist shops of every description to satisfy your retail yearnings! The biggest malls in the USA are located at the King of Prussia in Pennsylvania, the Mall of America at Minneapolis, South Coast Plaza at Orange County, California and at Millcreek Mall on the shores of Lake Eerie, Pennsylvania.

American wine is produced in all fifty states, Californian wine is the most famous and heavily

Visitors to the USA from the UK holding UK passports can use the visa waiver scheme; simply fill in the forms handed to you either at check-in or on the aircraft and you are free to stay in the USA for up to 90 days. Your passport must be machine readable. You will need a visa if: You have been arrested (even if not convicted), have a criminal record, have a serious, communicable disease (including HIV), have been refused entry to the US on a previous occasion or if you have been deported from the USA. An extensive network of air, train and road services means most major destinations can be reached by public transport, however the USA is perfect selfdrive territory, the roads are good and driving is on the right. Tolls are often payable. Cars are almost exclusively automatics, if you are planning to drive whilst in the states, ensure you are confident with automatic driving before you arrive!
