Cox & Kings has launched its new Australia and New Zealand brochures for 2012-13, with several new escorted group tours, luxury vacations and private tailor-made holidays available across the countries.
The brochure includes dedicated introduction pages for each of the regions with maps, weather charts, driving times and Cox & Kings' recommended highlights. Bonus: There is also a dedicated festivals page, and the new brochures offer ideas for excursions, short itineraries and hotels.
Some of the new options include:
AUSTRALIA: The operator is offering several new escorted group tours operated by AAT Kings, some of which have guaranteed departures.
Australian Highlights is a 13-day / 12-night non-exclusive group tour to the Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock), the Great Barrier Reef and Sydney. The tour includes transfers, excursions and accommodation with breakfast daily.
Western Escape is a 15-day / 14-night non-exclusive tour of Western Australia and includes iconic rock formations, dramatic landscapes, native wildlife, Aboriginal culture and outback settlements. The tour includes transfers, excursions and accommodation with breakfast daily and other meals as specified.
NEW ZEALAND: Cox & Kings has introduced motorhomes for traveling in New Zealand. New Zealand by Motorhome is a new 23-day / 22-night self-drive private journey that includes a motorhome for 18 days. Also included in the price is seven nights' hotel accommodation and transfers where necessary. Auckland & Waiheke Island is a seven-day / 6-night suggested package that can be incorporated into any tailor-made itinerary.
SOUTH PACIFIC: Included in the 2012/13 brochure for the first time is a page dedicated to Samoa, Vanuatu and Hawaii. Samoa provides visitors an authentic experience surrounded by rainforest-covered volcanic mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls, empty beaches, turquoise lagoons and friendly locals. Vanuatu comprises 83 islands scattered over 450,000 sq. km of the South Pacific. The Melanesian tribal cultures are part of what makes Vanuatu so special to visit and one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world.
Cox & Kings has reported that booking revenues have increased by 84 percent in 2011 compared to the previous year.
