Intrepid Travel have been taking people off the beaten track for nearly 30 years and they are currently offering an amazing earlybird discount on all of their 2018 small ship departures
Intrepid Travel are pioneering a new way to explore the seas: on small ships (with a maximum of 50 travellers), eating at traditional local restaurants or fresh, locally sourced food on board, and exploring the undiscovered little towns and bays that the bigger ships can’t reach.
So why would your customers be interested in their style of cruising? Firstly, it’s all about the destination. Most of the cruising is done overnight or in the early morning, meaning there’s more time for them to explore and immerse themselves at each stop. The opportunity is also there for travellers to expand their palates, with an onboard menu tailored to reflect each destination. All of their trips come with either half or full-board options, plus an unforgettable ‘local night’ where the onboard chef will whip up a feast of regional fare.
With fewer passengers, your customers can easily hop off and learn about Vikings in Reykjavik, or taste fresh seafood on the Greek islands. They can also swim or kayak to and from the ship when it pulls up in a sheltered bay or anchors offshore. Less people and smaller ships reduce stress on local communities, meaning your customers can travel responsibly as well as comfortably.
If you think your clients will love snorkelling in Portugal, kayaking in Croatia or whale-spotting in the Westfjords of Iceland, then you’ll love Intrepid Travel’s earlybird discount – offering 15 per cent off all 2018 departures.
