Contiki Goes Big in Europe in 2015 with 16 New Trips

Anaheim, Calif., Sept. 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- No two travelers are the same. That's why Contiki's new Europe 2015 brochure offers something for everyone, with eight new trip styles that cater to the different experiences young people want to have on vacation. The original youth travel brand's 2015 lineup also includes 16 brand new trips, with Morocco and Portugal as exciting sunny new destinations.

Just like back in '62, the Contiki ( mission is the same: provide young explorers with more choice, more freedom and more destinations at a great price and with plenty of awesome included experiences.

No longer will travelers choose their travel experience based on accommodation. Instead, they can choose the trip that works best for their travel style, whether they live for the late nights and bright lights of major cities or choose to take it easy and relax on some of the world's best beaches. Contiki's eight new Europe travel styles include:

  • Discovery Plus- See and do it all with top amenities and incredible places to rest your head
  • High Energy- Experience Europe through culture-filled days, epic sights and late nights
  • Easy Pace- A more relaxed way to see Europe, for those who want to take it slow
  • In-Depth Explorer - Get to the heart of the places you visit with more unique experiences and free time to explore
  • Freestyle Camping - European camping adventures with all the luxuries of home
  • Sailing & Cruise - Discover the freedom of a holiday on Europe's crystal clear waters
  • Festivals & Short Stays - Join our lineup of big festivals, day-trips & Christmas/NYE celebrations
  • Winter & Ski - Explore Europe covered in a dusting of snow or hit some of world's best slopes

"When our travelers first consider taking a trip, they think about the experience they want to have. They may want to see it all and do it all (collect those passport stamps!), or perhaps soak up the local culture, or maybe relax and take it slower," said Melissa da Silva, President of Contiki Vacations. "We are thrilled to be able to align our trips with those types of considerations and think it will make it so simple to choose the perfect Contiki trip. No matter which category they select, all our trips are young, fun and full of premium inclusions which set Contiki apart from traveling any other way."

Introduced by popular demand from Contiki's core demographic of 18-35s are three new trips heading to Morocco and Portugal. These culture-filled European hotspots are In-Depth Explorer itineraries, meaning travellers will live like a local with unique regional experiences and more nights in each city.

15-Day Spain, Morocco & Portugal
With 2-3 nights in each city, this epic journey through Spain, Morocco, and Portugal will give explorers a real feel for the destinations they visit. When they're not taking in the sights and smells of the markets on their personal ME Time, young travellers will indulge in the must-sees of Europe with locally guided tours of Lisbon, Granada's Alahambra Palace and Marrakech's Bahia Palace.
