Ways to
travel

Not all travelers are the same and we know that.

Some people are looking for the comforts of home; others just want the bare essentials. No matter how you want to travel or the type of accommodation you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re hoping to stretch your budget, wanting to see as much of Europe as possible, or really going local and digging deep in one region, it’s your choice how to travel. That's why Contiki gives you a Backstage Pass to Europe at no extra cost, with every trip.

On top of all this, it goes without saying that each and every trip comes with our Exclusive Team who will help you discover even more.
