AAT Kings has unveiled its 2020/21 brochure, encouraging travellers to take their own backyard from the bucket list to the to-do list.
The Travel Corporation owned company celebrated the release at The Squire’s Landing in Sydney on Wednesday night, emphasising the environmental benefits of group travel.
“When it comes to guided holidays, with 35 pax via coach, there are 84 per cent less emissions than the same volume of people travelling via car,” Matthew Cameron-Smith, managing director of AAT Kings said.
“We drive 92 per cent of all visiting into regional and rural Australia providing greater support through the tourism economy and help sustain local farms and small businesses through immersive dining options such as Be My Guest – where you can dine with locals.”
The new brochure is packed with fresh itineraries, like the Sensational South tour, which sees travellers head to New Zealand, where they will voyage from Wellington to Queenstown, featuring a Be My Guest experience on a sheep farm in Tekapo, a trip to see New Zealand’s longest glacier and a visit to Fiordland National Park, just to name a few highlights.
“Australia & New Zealand have so much incredible diversity to offer, and what better way to experience some of the world’s most extraordinary landscapes, endemic wildlife, food and wine scene – than doing it your way,” Cameron-Smith said.
“We know there is no cookie-cutter way to how Australians prefer to travel, so we’ve let them take the lead, offering two distinct travel styles so they can tailor their perfect holiday.”
Travellers can choose from First Choice and Best Buys when they book a group tour with AAT Kings.
First Choice tours are geared towards those seeking a relaxed pace with quality accommodation and exclusive experiences while Best Buys cater to those on the hunt for bucket-list holidays featuring must-see destinations.
AAT Kings is offering 10 per cent off all First Choice guided holidays departing from 1 April in Australia and New Zealand if your client books and pays before 31 January 2020.
