BACKPACKING

backpacking-main-0187eurs2016
Hiking boots laced up, passport in hand and backpack full of all the wanderlusting essentials, including a black notebook for collecting recipes and a disposable camera. You’re ready to see the world, backpacker; and we’re ready to show it to you. Featuring experiences cherry-picked for their ability to get you living a slice of any new culture, and following itineraries that delve deep into the destination and all it has to offer, we’ve all but nailed the travel style for those who prefer to roam. Set down that two-wheeled suitcase, and don your favourite backpack: this is travel for the culturally curious. Be it traversing the mountains of Latin America, or 
navigating the diverse landscape of New Zealand. No matter where you are, we’ve got the trips to make your backpacking experience one that you’ll never want to forget. Whether you’re pining for less coach time, longer stays in each destination and days that put free time adventuring centre stage, or you’re tight on time or want to go home feeling like you’ve truly conquered a continent. We’ll keep your trails local, authentic and ensure you not just skimming the surface of a new destination. Backpacking has never looked so good…

Tonight is the night we come together to award the best in our business and bust a move or two on the dance floor. 

This year’s theme will be TIGHT, WHITE and/or BRIGHT!

This is your chance to party like you’re on a Contiki…. With 50 of your best friends.  Nothing is too outrageous… the more you stand out the better!  We want to see you in your brightest, most colourful, most wonderful imaginative outfits you can think of.   After all on Contiki you need to be pretty resourceful when it comes to putting together an Epic costume for the night… we expect big things because you have a month to plan it.

BUT FIRST IT'S TIME TO NOMINATE SOMEONE UNDER THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES

  • CONTIKI SPIRIT – YOU ARE THE CONTIKI VALUES
  • CONTIKI CHALLENGER – CHAMPION OF INNOVATION
  • CONTIKI ALL STAR – YOU ARE CONTIKI, A TEAM PLAYER, GOAL DRIVEN, AND YOU ALWAYS GO ABOVE AND BEYOND!
  • CONTIKI PEOPLE LEADER OF THE YEAR – THIS IS FOR AN UP AND COMING LEADER (NOT FOR THE SENIOR LEADERS) WHO HAS GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND TO DEVELOP THEIR TEAM AND SMASH SOME GOALS

Plus on the night we will be announcing Contiki’s Call Centre Sales Champion, as well as Sales Rep of the Year. The prizes are HUGE (free trip anyone?), so please include sufficient detail for each nomination.

Please submit your nominations by Friday 1 June.
