For clients who like the sound of travelling the east coast of Australia during winter, Maui is currently offering up to 38% off its standard rates for motorhomes, for travel spanning Melbourne all the way up to Cairns. Bookings must be made before May 31 and travel taken before September 30. The booking code for the offer is Eastern and Maui Australia.  


European car leasing expert globalCARS has released a number of post earlybird deals with Citroen. There are savings to be made on vehicles like the full size C5 Tourer – now available with a lead-in 17-day package priced from $1980 with another nine days for free, and extra days thereafter costing $38. Also on offer is free pick-up and drop-off at 20 locations in France as well as a 50% reduction on pick-up and return fees outside France. Plus, for loyalty customers, there's an extra three free days.


For clients heading to Europe before June 30 and wanting to take a self-drive holiday, Renault Eurodrive is offering savings of $300 on select family-size Scenic models if booked before May 16 and collected by June 30. For example, it has reduced the price for a 21-day lease of a Scenic 1.5L Manual to $1599, and to $1699 for 21-day leases for a Scenic 1.6L Diesel Manual, with additional days costing $34 for both models.


While India has traditionally been an escorted touring destination, self-drive is a new concept that's gathering momentum, with Wendy Wu Tours recently releasing a new product for this style of travel. This self-drive exploration holiday, travelling in a luxury 4WD with a private guide, is available through the operator's new luxury program, Wendy's Collection. The suggested nine-day itinerary begins in Delhi, taking in Alwar, Samode, Pushkar and Udaipur, before flying back to Delhi. Prices start from $7055, with accommodation in restored palaces.
