The Land is vast with cites that differ just as much as the landscape from the Big Apple – New York and the nations capital Washington DC in the East to Chicago the gateway to the Great Lakes and onto San Francisco and Los Angeles in the West.

CLIMATE AND SUGGESTED CLOTHING The US climate varies considerably from the Southern sunbelt to the frozen North, so take your destination into account as you pack your suitcase. In summer, it’s warm almost everywhereexcept northern New England, Oregon and Washington State. In winter, heavy outer wear is essential, unless you’re restricting your visit to the southern-most states. For New York and Chicago, galoshes or rubber overshoes are a good idea; some swear by “long johns”-long thermal underwear. Even in California and Florida, temperatures can drop to freezing point in December, January and February. Yet cold spells there never last long and can be followed by a heat wave; be prepared for every eventuality. North and south, air-conditioning takes the edge off summer heat and humidity, so have a jacket or a fleece handy for the chilly indoors. HEALTH AND MEDICAL CARE Free medical service is not available in the US, and a visit to the doctor can be expensive, hospitalisation an economic disaster. Holiday medical insurance is therefore essential (See page 193 for insurance details). Foreign visitors may wish to ask their embassy or consulate for a list of doctors. In an emergency, local telephone operators are an excellent source of advice (dial the number “0”). Visitors from abroad will find that certain medicines sold over the counter at home can only be purchased with a prescription (and vice versa). If you are taking prescribed prescriptions ensure you take sufficient for your entire stay.

So many seasoned travellers today no longer want a standard package holiday, with this in mind our holidays are designed so you can put together your own itinerary from the brochure. All the tours, car hire, cruises, excursions and accommodation arrangements are featured exclusive of the transatlantic flights so that you can easily work out the price of your holiday. All you have to do is add together the cost of the different components and your flight. Air fares change so regularly that it is always best to check with us for the lowest price. If you need help at anytime or if what you want is not in our brochure, then our ‘Tailor-made Team’ is here to help.

Planning your holiday build your own holiday the easy way with Travelpack Multi-centre holidays or tailor-made Fly/Drive holidays

STEP ONE Select the airline that you wish to travel with, see pages 188192, use the flight prices opposite this page as a guide, they include airport taxes and current fuel surcharges. You will need to check with us at the time of booking for the final price, which may be lower.

Once you have selected your itinerary just go to our Independent Traveller section for accommodation prices. The prices are shown per ROOM per night; just add the number of nights you need in each location. If you need a car see pages 72-79 and add the price to the number of nights accommodation plus your airfare and you have the independent holiday of your choice. You can also add on Resort stays or adventure activities to complete the package.

Weekend Breaks

STEP TWO Select the type of holiday you want, either an Escorted Tour, Rail Tour, a Self/Drive Tour, a cruise to Alaska, a city break or your own tailor-made itinerary. Consult the contents of the brochure for details of the wide choice of ground arrangements in Canada and the USA.

The major cities in Canada and the USA are great for a weekend away so all you have to do is select the city, choose your hotel, decide if you want transfers, and add your choices together then just add your flight price.

Go on Holiday and have a great time!

Touring Holidays Prices are shown per person and for Escorted Tours and Rail Tours the price of the tour is shown on the page so just add the flight price on page 11 & 188. You do have some extra items you can add on such as pre or post tour accommodation; this is shown on the page or in our accommodation section. For those who want assistance and transfers on arrival and departure the price of these is again shown on the page. All you need to do now is add the cost of these to your flight price.

The first step to a successful holiday is to book the right flights that suit your needs and with Travelpack you have twelve Airlines to choose from. All of our Airline partners provide the service you would expect from a world-class schedule carrier. Daily services to most destinations and many airlines have refitted their aircraft to give you extra legroom in economy class with up to a 34-inch pitch for extra comfort on state of the art aircraft. There are direct flights to many destinations from London/Heathrow, Manchester and Glasgow but we also offer flights from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Belfast, Edinburgh and Glasgow via a US gateway such as New York, Newark, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Toronto, Montreal and many more. You can break your journey to make a two-centre holiday in one of these gateways. We can give you full information when you book your flights, just give us a call for help and advice and one of our consultants will be more than pleased to assist you.

Via Europe

STEP FOUR STEP THREE

Flights - Your First step

Another option is travel via a European Gateway such as Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Madrid or Barcelona. The great benefit here is that many of the airfares from local airports are the same price as travelling from London/Heathrow and you can choose from up to 15 local UK airports.

Upgrade your flight One of the other benefits of travelling on a schedule carrier is that you have the choice of booking a higher class of travel such as Premier Economy Class, Business Class, or First Class.

Airfares Here we show sample return economy class airfares that include Airport Taxes, Airport Fees, Fuel Surcharges and Passenger Service Charges. When comparing prices you should take this into account, as the taxes are an average of £180. The sample airfares are actual airfares that are current at the time of printing this brochure and they are special fares that can only be booked with tours, car hire, accommodation or other ground arrangements. However we may be able to offer you even better airfares at the time of your booking so call us now on 08444 920 401.

Self/Drive Pre-planned Tours Prices are shown per person for the tour and are shown on the page. We have not included the cost of the car because we believe you have the right to choose the size of your car, for example if there are just two of you, you may want a compact car or a family will want a large car or a Minivan so we have featured the car prices separately on pages 72-79. The car prices are featured per car, not per person. Add these two items to your flight price and you are on your way. On most of the tours you can Flex the tour by adding in extra nights at places you want to spend more time.

Alaska Cruises These depart from either Vancouver or Seattle for 8 days/ 7 nights. Prices are shown per person on pages 40-45 so you can either add on a cruise to your Tour or just take the cruise on its own. You can add on hotel stays before or after the tour/cruise to make a longer holiday. Just add the flight price.

Travelpack have been providing quality-escorted tours of Canada and the USA for over 25 years and in that time thousands of satisfied clients have come back to us every year. Why? Because escorted tours are one of the best ways to see North America and every year we find new tours and new ways of enhancing existing tours. We have introduced Optional Activities in Canada whilst you are on tour such as flight seeing tours by float planes and helicopters, nature and wildlife excursions such as whale watching, canoeing or rafting. Look out for our Cruise Friendly Tours, these tours are ideal for adding on a Cruise to Alaska at the beginning or end of your tour, see our wide selection of cruises on pages 42-49.

Scenic Roads of North America introduction to escorted tours WHY CHOOSE AN ESCORTED TOUR All new travellers to Canada and the USA wonder which way is best to see this great country so here are just some of the reasons for choosing an escorted tour. • They represent great value for money with all your accommodation; travel in North America and sightseeing tours included and some tours even include your meals. • They let the motor coach take the strain of touring, no driving, no working out routes, and no worries about getting lost along the way. • You have your own Tour Director on hand 24 hours a day who will give you a running commentary highlighting all the points of interest, organise your Optional Excursions and ensure your holiday is a pleasurable one. • You travel on the best scenic routes, and stop at all the right places along the way, not just the known areas but also the lesser known, out of the way places as well. • With Travelpack you can even be flexible by adding Pre & Post tour accommodation or even add a cruise. • Meeting new travelling companions. THE BEST PRICING Travelpack want our clients to get the best deal for their holiday to Canada and the USA. Therefore we have looked at every possible way of saving you money so we don’t include the flight therefore we can find you the lowest fare at the time of booking. TOUR ONLY This option allows you some more flexibility by adding or substituting parts of the Inclusive Price option as you may not need all the services that are on offer. Items such as the UK airport transfers or the Meet & Greet service in Canada or you may wish to choose another scheduled airline or take a charter flight instead. Whichever option you choose Travelpack can ensure you have the holiday that suits your needs. TOUR ONLY PRICE INCLUDES: • Transportation by modern motorcoach • Experienced Tour Driver • Tour Director • Accommodation in rooms with a private bathroom • Baggage handling of one piece of luggage • Provincial taxes and Federal GST less accommodation rebate • Sightseeing and admissions as specified in the itinerary.

It is usual to tip approximately 15%. It is also customary for tour clients to offer a tip for the escort and driver of two or three dollars per person per day, payable at the end of your tour. CLOTHING For Spring, Summer and Autumn we suggest casual, lightweight clothing that can be worn in layers. Evenings can be chilly in the mountains so a good fleece, sweater and gloves are often worthwhile. CURRENCY It is advisable to take your money in US or Canadian dollar traveller’s cheques.

Rocky Mountaineer Rail VacationsTM offers a wide variety of spectacular vacation packages to choose from, all designed to create memories that will last a lifetime. Rocky Mountaineer Rail Vacations include all the elements you need - rail journey, accommodations, attractions, sightseeing tours, luggage handling and transfers. Vacations are non-escorted, giving you the freedom to explore on your own, with the comfort of knowing that all arrangements have been made for you. You will be provided with a detailed itinerary, directions and vouchers for all services. Rocky Mountaineer Guest Service Managers are available to help you in most destinations, and friendly assistance is never more than a phone call away. (pages 29-32 & 38-39).

The Whistler Mountaineer is a 3 hour, premier train journey from North Vancouver to Whistler, site of the 2010 Winter Olympics and located in the heart of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains (page 37).

VIA operates trains in all regions of Canada over a network stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from the Great Lakes to Hudson Bay. Travelling by train through Canada is a completely relaxed way to travel; a comfortable seat beside a panoramic window, a wide aisle that is easy to walk about in, light snacks and fine dining… no traffic jams and other rigours of road or air travel. As you travel, the scenery glides silently by. You’ll see mountains towering majestically above you through the train’s glass dome. You’ll see fishing shacks and a shoreline so close you could throw out a line! You’ll see the flow of the approaching city lighting up the night sky. No other mode of transportation allows you to view the very essence of Canada so close, so comfortably (pages 40-41).

Where Broadway and the West End Meet NCL pioneered the idea of bringing big shows to the sea. The innovative shows take their inspiration from the best of Broadway, Las Vegas and London’s West End all rolled into one. Aboard all NCL ships there are proper theatres, where curtain up means lavishly staged shows, professional casts and great production numbers that will have you wondering just how they do it. Productions include Garden of the Geisha, Cirque Pacific, Music of the Night, and Sea Legs® Cirque Pan.

Enjoy Time Ashore You will enjoy the optional shore ‘Experience Excursions’, designed to get the best out of the ports of call we know so well. Go dog sledding, grizzly bear or whale watching, take a helicopter to a remote glacier then walk on ice or ride a vintage railway past glaciers, gorges and waterfalls.

NCL Freestyle is your style Beachside resort elegance sums up life on board. The dress code for the evening? What dress code? Smart casual is fine anytime, but if you’d like to dress up in black tie or cocktail dress, an optional formal evening on every cruise offers the perfect opportunity.

THE RATES INCLUDE WHERE APPLICABLE: • Hotel accommodation as specified • Hotel Sales Tax • State Taxes, subject to change • Meals where specified CHECK IN/OUT Rooms are normally available at 3pm and must be vacated on the day of departure at 11am, this varies. If you are going to arrive after 4pm you should ring the hotel or your room may be released and you will be charged a ‘no show’ fee, usually one night’s accommodation. TWIN/DOUBLE ROOMS Rooms normally have a double bed, you can request a twin room which can range from two double beds (known as a double/double room) or two single beds, which is normally the case in big cities like New York where the rooms tend to be smaller. A double room is a room with one double bed ranging from a Queen sized bed to a King size bed. If you have a preference you need to advise us at the time of booking which room type you require so we can request this from the hotel. TRIPLE/QUAD ROOMS Triple and quad room rate is based on sharing the existing bed/s in the room. It is not a room with 3 or 4 beds. At some hotels, a third/fourth bed (rollaway) may be available, subject to room size, for an additional cost payable direct to the hotel. RANCHES Some ranches are small and secluded, others are more accessible. At every ranch you will find generous home cooking, while some ranches provide true ‘roughing it’ lifestyles, others have fully catered health spa facilities. Most ranches and resorts offer a wide range of activities.

Car Hire: Motor Homes There is nothing like the freedom of the open road if you are in a vehicle that has high and wide windows! And that’s exactly what you get with a ‘Recreational Vehicle’ (RV) – everyone can see over hedges to the near or distant landscape. So whatever your choice of touring destination, the family will enjoy it together. Here at Travelpack we have a host of routing suggestions leaving from 28 cities across the USA and Canada – and Alaska as well. We work exclusively with Cruise America & Cruise Canada, the largest motorhome rental company in the world with 36 years experience of providing holidays for visitors from around the globe. BOOK EARLY to take advantage of some amazing Special Offers available for summer 2008. We also include FULL INSURANCE and TAX and our consultants will offer you the option to pre-pay everything else you need for your rental from 28 cities in the USA and Canada. Canada Vancouver, Whitehorse, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax USA Alaska, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, New York, Newark, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Orlando. Miami, Tampa, Houston, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Denver, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland.

Early Bird Departure Special Must be reserved (& pre-paid) 30 days or more in advance. Clients will be first on the road – even during the busy high season. • Beginning at 8:30 a.m. transfers from designated area hotels* are included. • Vehicle departures are completed no later than noon. • Late Return Option up to 3:00 p.m. • Return transfer to designated hotels* or airport will be arranged & paid for by rental centre in the form of a credit to your rental contract. *Hotels in designated areas only.

Requirements to rent and drive – Even if you are not old enough to rent a car without horrendous ‘Under 25’ surcharges, so long as you are over 21 years of age and have a full and valid drivers license, there is no reason why you cannot rent an ‘RV”! And there are no surcharges either! We also have no restriction on the number of drivers, and no extra driver fee, though all must be present at pick up and all must sign the rental contract and agree to abide by its Terms & Conditions. First night hotel – Except in Albuquerque, Boston and Halifax where you can overnight in your vehicle at the KOA campground where the rental office is located, you must spend your first night in a hotel. Rental Stations Open – Every day except for Sundays and National Holidays. One-way rentals – It is possible to pick up in one city and return in another on payment of a ‘one way rental’ fee. These vary from $50 to $750 depending on your routing and our staff can advise you. One way rentals are NOT permitted between the USA and Canada. Vehicle Collection/Return – Normal collection is in the afternoon with return on the last day by 11am. A telephone call to the rental office in the morning will tell you what time to be there to pick up your vehicle. Why not get away sooner and have transfers included by booking the Early Bird departure special. Security Deposit – A deposit of $500 (C$ 500), payable by credit card, is collected when you pick up your vehicle. Provided the vehicle is returned clean and undamaged, this will be refunded to your credit card less any extra mileage charges. If you do not have a credit card, payment in cash may be made at $1000 (C$1500). Refund of deposit in this instance will be made by dollar cheque and mailed to the address on your rental contract. Orientation – You will be shown how the vehicle systems work and be invited to look around your motorhome with a

88 80

member of staff. You should ask any questions about things you are uncertain of at this time. Please also check that you have everything on board that should be there (kits etc) and that you are happy with the vehicle. Whats Included • Full ‘Peace of Mind’ insurance is INCLUDED; we call it that because we want you to be comfortable and relaxed knowing that you have $1 million Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI) which raises the State or Provincial minimal limits. You also have comprehensive coverage for any vehicle damage with the exception of an excess of $500 – just like the excess you probably have on your family car insurance. When you sign the official Rental Contract at pick up, you are signing to say you will abide by the Terms and Conditions of that contract. Therefore, if for any reason you are NOT doing that when damage or mechanical breakdown occurs, all insurances will automatically be invalidated. • Taxes – All taxes on things you pre-pay to Travelpack are included. Items you pay for locally (maybe kits, excess mileage etc) will attract tax at the local rate. WHERE DO WE STAY OVERNIGHT? If you are not sure where to stay in your home with wheels, we can assure you there are over 16,000 campgrounds in North America so finding somewhere to stay is not difficult except in peak Season, when it may be a good idea to pre book. Our itineraries are based on KOA Campgrounds www.koa.com for a copy of the KOA Tour book and Directory call 01444 233289. If you want to research your own then do look at www.woodalls.com that covers just about all of them as well as www.recreation.gov for the National Parks. For even more great touring ideas and suggested itineraries go to www.cruiseamerica.org.uk and click on Travel Ideas. This website also contains the answers to all those frequently asked questions you may have on renting an RV.

Car Hire: Motor Homes How the pricing works The flexible pricing system (Flexrate) developed by Cruise America follows the same lines as the low-cost airlines we have here in Britain. The earlier you book, the more availability there is of seats (or in our case, motorhomes!) and therefore the price is cheaper. It of course follows that the closer to your departure date you book the less likely you are to get the best ‘deal’. Because of this people are booking earlier and earlier each year so, BOOK EARLY is the rule here. Be sure to look at ALL vehicle prices because you may find that a larger vehicle is available at a cheaper price than a small one. Minimum rental period – is seven nights, except Chicago during the OshKosh Air show which is min 14 nights. More information – We will be sending you the leaflet ‘Essential Information for Motorhome Renters’ along with your final paperwork. Its important things that you need to know before you travel so please read it before you leave home. 24 hour Travellers Assistance – Cruise America’s call centre is manned 24/7 so if you have any problems at all please call the freephone number that is provided with your documents

What vehicle to choose All Cruise America and Cruise Canada vehicles have what is known as a ‘C’ Body – with a cab-over double bed. During 36 years of working with customers renting motorhomes, most have said they find these much easier to drive than the cumbersome ‘A’ Body vehicles. All are built for the rental market with strong seat coverings, vinyl floors, secure catches and everything necessary to ensure little damage can be done to impair your rental experience. All vehicles are fitted with seat belts for the number of persons they carry (belts are normally around the table in the rear).

Please Note: Because Cruise America and Canada buy from more than one manufacturer, floor-plans you see in this or any other brochure are used as an example only. Generator – All vehicles in the USA, and the C30 in Canada, are fitted with a petrol generator that allows the systems to work even if the motorhome is not linked to local electricity. So a generator is NOT required unless you are in a National or State Park campground where there is no electrical supply to your motorhome. If you do need to use it, $3 per running hour is metered and charged at the end of rental.

On-Board features – All vehicles have automatic transmission, power steering and cruise control; a refrigerator which can be powered by either electricity or propane gas; a hob powered by propane gas and a microwave; a shower and flush toilet; dash and roof air-conditioning to keep you cool; a furnace for warming you up and heating the water; and finally an AM/FM radio. Your final choice – When choosing the right vehicle for your party always try and go for one slightly larger than you think you may need. With Cruise America’s pricing plan, this may even be CHEAPER than the one you first thought of!

Ottawa one of the world’s most beautiful capitals

Nestled at the junction of three picturesque rivers, Ottawa is one of the world’s most beautiful capitals. The city borders the province of Quebec, creating a dynamic cultural milieu in which both French and English cultures are deeply rooted. The result is a truly cosmopolitan experience - a North American city with a distinctly European charm and flair. Ottawa presents visitors with a wide selection of sightseeing and outdoor-leisure options. In fact, with more than a dozen national museums and galleries - and a full calendar of festivals and activities - Canada’s Capital Region has something for everyone. From tranquil forest paths to exhilarating whitewater adventures, nature abounds in the Ottawa region. The city is a favourite destination among sports and outdoor enthusiasts, who appreciate the area’s many parks and recreational facilities. Try your luck at The Casino du Lac-Leamy and the Rideau Carleton Raceway slots and dine out at one of the city’s many restaurants. For shopping enthusiasts there are malls of all sizes, the Byward Market, Downtown Rideau and Somerset Village.

Discover the Capital Tour Duration: 2 hours Step on/step off tour - Departing from individual Ottawa hotels. Enjoy this sightseeing tour of the nation’s capital. Explore the Parliament Buildings, embassies, universities and museums. See the Canadian Mint, the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Civilization, the residence of the Prime Minister and the National Arts Centre. You will drive through scenic gardens and parkslands and along the Rideau canal, one of Ottawa’s picturesque waterways. Ticket is valid for two days. Hol Ref: YOWDTC 27 Apr 08 - 13 Oct 08
