Forget the Business of Planning, Get Down to Traveling

Contiki Enables Travelers to Relax and Enjoy the Ride!

Anaheim, California, May 2008 – For today’s young professionals vacation planning can be overwhelming, especially if travelers are attempting itineraries that cover a lot of territory in a limited amount of time. Coupled with the obligations of work and school, traveling can be a daunting if not impossible mission. Offering more than 100 packages throughout Europe (including Egypt & Russia), Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United States, Contiki, the world leader in vacation packages geared towards 18 to 35 year olds, takes all the hassle and stress out of vacation planning.

“Contiki relieves stress for travelers by taking care of the heavy preparation and research that goes into planning a vacation. With Contiki, travelers are able to relax and enjoy their free time without worrying about transportation, lodging, language barriers, safety and other potential complicated matters,” noted Contiki President, Greg “Fish” Fischbein. “In addition, Contiki passengers have the benefit of traveling with other like-minded people from all around the world – it’s a cultural immersion inside and out.”

“Time is also often an issue for working professionals and students. With limited vacation time and heavy work loads, it can be difficult to find the time to go on vacation let alone plan one,” added Michelle Murray, Head of Marketing. “With Contiki, you select the itinerary and Contiki takes you to the cultural attractions, hot spots, hidden gems, and must see’s on the route. Our optional excursions allow for guests to customize their trips with items such as museum visits, white water rafting, Flamenco shows, wine tasting, and shopping.”

Additionally, globe trekkers looking to paint the town red can feel good about the green initiatives Contiki is undertaking to reduce the impact of tourism on the environment. From reducing overall company resource consumption and waste to applying recycling and energy reduction programs at all offices and operational facilities, Contiki is dedicated to the fight against climate change and reducing carbon emissions. In honor of their commitment Contiki has set up The World Conservation Foundation and is donating $1 million per year to fund sustainable tourism projects across the globe.
