Cosmos Unveils New 2012 European Travel Packages

Cosmos has unveiled its 2012 Europe itineraries, including a new 50th anniversary UNESCO World Heritage tour (plus six other new vacations), noting that with Cosmos, travelers can tour Europe for as little as $77 per day in 2012.

For 50 years, Cosmos reports, it has offered value-minded travelers affordable travel packages and in 2012, Cosmos will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a new limited-time UNESCO tour and special offers throughout the year.
“Since inventing the budget tour, we have refined the concept of low-cost travel packages,” said Scott Nisbet, president and chief operating officer for the Globus family of brands. “We offer travelers the time they crave to explore the world while making it easy for them to become immersed in foreign cities and local cultures. And, thanks to our expert tour directors, we give travelers interesting insight and stories that bring meaning to each destination.”
Among its European tour offerings for 2012, Cosmos is unveiling a new special, 12-day limited-edition 50th anniversary Swiss UNESCO World Heritage tour (priced from $2,639).  On this vacation, travelers will explore several of Switzerland’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, including taking in such scenic highlights as Heidiland, Walensee, Engadin National Park, Lake Como and Jungfraujoch

According to Nisbet, in 2012, the company’s European itineraries are more diverse than ever with four travel styles (Regional Discoveries, Panoramas, Escapes and Rail Journeys) and six new itineraries to Scotland, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Greece and Istanbul.  In total, Cosmos is offering travelers more than 50 European itineraries to celebrate 50 years of affordable travel.
“The goal of Cosmos has been the same from the beginning,” said Nisbet.  “To make our favorite pastime – traveling – an affordable reality.  Next year, we’re providing travelers vacation packages with hotels, transportation and sightseeing in Europe for as little as $77 per day – less than a night out at home might cost – and much less than travelers could book on their own.”
