Europe Vacations by the Globus family of brands

June 24, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The Globus family of brands has expertly designed and unveiled more than 30 "low season" vacations, including two NEW itineraries with Globus and Monograms, offering Americans a plethora of opportunities to travel abroad at unbeatable prices this fall, winter and next spring.

In addition to its already robust selection of holiday tours and cruises and winter vacation packages across Europe, Globus is introducing a NEW, nine-day Christmas in Paris & New Year's Eve in London itinerary, priced from $1,599. And, capitalizing on America's interest in Ireland, Monograms is providing travelers a NEW four-day Dublin Getaway, priced from $517.

"Winter is a great time for Americans to make European travel dreams come true," said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. "They can take a vacation at a reduced price, while avoiding the crowds that converge during the summer travel months."

From holiday cruises on the Main and Danube rivers to tours across Europe ranging from seven to 29 days as well as 10 independent vacation packages, the Globus family of brands' "European Winter Vacations" offer unparalleled savings to fit any travel style.

"Not only are we giving travelers a large selection of tours, cruises and independent vacations from which to choose a phenomenal European vacation," said Born. "We are offering them savings of up to 40 percent on air and 15 percent on land, compared to peak season pricing."

Even more chances to save are available for those who plan ahead and book early: Travelers can save $200 per couple on Globus family of brands' 2010/11 European Winter vacations when booking air-inclusive with Alitalia by July 27, 2010.* Sample fares start as low as $415/person.
