How Contiki Works
What we do and why we do it
We bring together travelers from all corners of the globe to discover new cultures and a little part of themselves along the way. Across 350+ global trips we sort out the stressful stuff like transport and accommodations, leaving you with unique travel experiences you wouldn’t be able to book on your own. Throughout your trip our expert Trip Managers and Local Guides use their local insights to help you discover an authentic side to the places you visit.
Here's how your Contiki trip works
Travel with people from all over the world
Travel is about learning new things, gaining fresh perspectives and making lifelong friends. That’s why on our trips you’ll share unforgettable travel experiences with other people from all over the world. Come solo, with a pal or with a partner - you’ll soon feel like part of a global family.
Culturally immersive trips led by expert guides
Whether you’re dining in the homes of locals or learning about hidden histories, our immersive experiences help you dive deep into different cultures. Our expert Trip Managers and Local Guides show you a different side to the places you visit and are always on hand with killer local tips.
Stress-free and flexible = zero hassle travel
We take the hassle out of travel, sorting transport, accommodation and a bunch of delicious meals for the duration of your trip. But it’s your trip, your rules, which is why our travel styles, optional experiences and flexible itineraries give you the freedom to build the trip you want.
Contiki Cares - in partnership with the TreadRight foundation - is our commitment to protecting the communities we visit, the wildlife we interact with and the planet we all share, and it’s the driving force behind our pledge to make travel matter. On our trips we travel consciously, tread lightly and always strive to partner with local suppliers.
The only thing you need to do is get to the place where your trip starts (get in touch and we can help you with your flights). Ready to get started?Take these 3 simple steps.
