Air Package Plus: the best way to go
Airfare is the most expensive component of any vacation—but not with VBT’s Air Package Plus. It not only includes your round-trip international airfare aboard scheduled carriers, it adds an extra night or two of hotel accommodations—all for only $1000 on average more than the land only package we also offer! If you’ve tried to buy a round-trip ticket to Europe lately, you know how difficult (if not impossible) it would be to find a price anywhere near our pre-negotiated low fixed rates. Plus, with our Custom Air Service, you can deviate before or after your tour and travel to/from a different city other than what is included, and more.
Here’s what you get for one low package price:
- Included roundtrip International airfare aboard scheduled carriers and from most major U.S. cities and select Canadian gateways.
- All transfers to and from the airport
- VBT Airport representatives and Trip Leaders to greet and escort you to the starting point of your tour
- An extra night or two of hotel accommodations (in most cases) at centrally located 3- or 4-star hotels — more time to enjoy!
- Daily breakfast
- More convenience—all the logistics are taken care of in one easy phone call at the time of booking
- Option to add low-cost pre- and post-trip extensions
Compare our land-only prices to the full Air Package Plus fare, and you’ll see that there’s no more economical way to go. Then, there’s the convenience and peace of mind you can’t put a price on. With all your air travel and transfers taken care of, all you have to do is relax and let the vacation begin!
Save up to 10% and Guarantee your Trip Price with our Good Buy Discount
The earlier you reserve and pay in full by check, the more you’ll save—up to 10% off the price of your trip. Plus, as soon as you pay in full for your 2015 tour, you are protected from any future air fuel surcharges—a savings of up to $100.
Earn Frequent Traveler Credits with every VBT trip
Every time you travel with VBT in 2015, you earn a 5% Frequent Traveler Credit good towards your next VBT vacation. Your credit is valid through December 31, 2016 (for credit earned in 2015).
Travel Protection Plan…a safer way to travel!
VBT recommends the purchase of a travel protection plan which protects your travel investment, your belongings and most importantly you from those unforeseen circumstances that may arise before or during your trip. Click HERE for details.
Make the most of your active vacation with an optional extension
When you choose our Air Package Plus, you have the opportunity to add to your discoveries with an affordable VBT pre- or post-trip extension. These typically offer two to three extra nights in a nearby place of interest, with lodgings, breakfast, and transfers included. Our extensions are priced at values you couldn’t obtain on your own, and since your international airfare has already been included in the cost of your base tour, this is the ideal way to broaden your horizons—without breaking the bank.
