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 roundtrip international airfare aboard major carriers, it adds an extra night or two of hotel accommodations — all for only $800 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 major airlines from up to 30 US 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 biking or walking 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 from $50 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—from $50 up to 10% off the price of your trip.

Earn Frequent Traveler Credits with every VBT trip
Every time you travel with VBT, you earn a 5% Frequent Traveler Credit good towards your next VBT vacation — valid through December 31, 2014 (for 2013 travel).
Make the most of your stay with an optional extension
Choose our Air Package Plus
and you also gain the opportunity to stay on a little longer 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. We’ll also provide City Information in your Final Travel Booklet with tips for exploring on your own. Our extensions are priced at values you could not 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.
Earn Travel Credits of $100—plus Cash Rewards—when you refer friends!
You already love to talk about your trips. Why not get credit for it? If you introduce new travelers to VBT, you’ll receive $100
in travel credits toward your next VBT vacation when your new traveler returns from their first trip — plus cash bonuses when you make additional referrals. Your friends benefit, too, with a $50 discount on their first VBT trip. See our Refer a Friend page for details
