CIE Tours International has announced the availability of its 2012 Preview Brochure, providing detailed information about the company’s portfolio of deluxe motorcoach programs for travel to Ireland, Scotland and England.
This travel agent marketing tool also showcases CIE Tours’ newly designed Early Booking Discount programs, including special offers and discounts for 2012, as well as new and enhanced itineraries for the coming year.
CIE Tours reports it developed the preview brochure based on client survey responses and feedback, and incorporated these insights to shape a wealth of itineraries that speak to travelers’ special interests and passions.
Hailed for providing exciting, high value escorted tours to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales, CIE Tours’ user-friendly brochure presents a host of inspiring travel itineraries, including 5- to 14-day motorcoach vacations.
Itineraries are comprehensive, CIE says, including everything from hotel accommodations, airport transfers and admission fees, to most meals, evening entertainment and sumptuous banquet events. Additionally, all CIE Tours itineraries feature deluxe motorcoach transportation and expert tour directors and local guides who help bring each destination to life, providing travelers aged eight and older with authentic travel experiences that will stay with them long after their return home.
“Our 2012 programs have been designed to offer vacationers a rich plethora of exciting and unique vacation options,” said CIE Tours President Brian W. Stack. “Additionally, with our new value offers and exciting youth and senior discounts, it’s never too early to start planning. The 2012 Preview Brochure is comprehensive, fully updated and beautifully designed, to assist our travel partners in booking their clients’ dream vacations to Ireland and Britain.”
A new itinerary for 2012 is an eight- or nine-day “Best of Britain” tour, which includes accommodations in Superior First Class hotels; a Scottish cabaret dinner show; a banquet at Cardiff Castle; walking tours of Oxford and York; plus visits to Windsor and Alnwick Castles, the Lake District and Tintern Abbey; and a Beatles tour in Liverpool. Land-only rates for the “Best of Britain” tour begin at $1,648 per person, including all local taxes, hotel service charges and porterage fees.
CIE Tours International said it consistently seeks to improve its unique travel offerings. All itineraries are carefully evaluated and revised annually in accordance with feedback garnered from CIE Tours’ customers. For example, a two-night stay in County Mayo’s picturesque Westport and visits to the stately 18th-century Westport House and Achill Island, famed for spectacular beaches and rugged cliffs, have been added to the popular "Irish Pub & Folk Tour" for 2012.
Regarded by travel agents as the standard-bearer for deluxe motorcoach tours of Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales, CIE Tours says its experienced guides are focused solely on ensuring an extraordinary vacation experience for clients, rather than on “up-selling” optional excursions. CIE Tours clients are secure in the knowledge that CIE Tours guarantees land tour prices once deposits are paid, thus easing concerns regarding currency fluctuations.
All prices in CIE Tours’ 2012 Preview Brochure are valid until the end of June, while its website offers rates for the entire 2012 season. The site also features a broad array of independent itinerary options, including self-drive and chauffeur-drive Irish vacations.
