~ Plus get an additional 15% off select 2018 trips with the ‘free-spirited travel expert’ ~

The 2017 summer travel season may not be over, but passionate budget-savvy travellers are already thinking ahead to where they’d like to vacation in 2018. Busabout, the free-spirited travel expert, is making it incredibly easy for travellers to save on next year’s European adventures with its 2018 Preview Program promotion.

For select 2018 itineraries throughout Europe, Busabout is offering a 15% discount on 2017 prices. To take advantage of this remarkable deal, travelers must make an initial deposit payment by September 30, 2017 and use promo code PREVIEW2018 when booking. Should the trip price decrease once the 2018 brochure is released in September, Busabout will honor the lower price when it comes time to make final payment.

“We are excited to launch our Preview Program for the first time in North America,” said Damien Bennett, Vice President of Sales for Busabout North America. “We’re already seeing a lot of interest from our guests looking to secure their travels for next year, and this program allows travelers and agents to pin down these incredible prices plus an additional 15% off their 2018 European adventures.”

The following is a selection of trips that are part of the Preview Program:

Sailing Croatia (Busabout photo)

  • Croatia Island Hopper – There’s no beating Croatia’s Dalmatian coast for an eight day, seven nights chill out. Travellers will spend an unforgettable week sailing on a beautiful vintage boat where they will be able to relax and let the captain and his crew (especially the cook!) spoil them while they contemplate whether to swim, sunbathe or do a bit of sightseeing. Think crystal clear seas, tiny walled cities, eclectic islands and long nights sampling local food and wine in a traditional konoba.
  • Ultimate Balkan – Clients on this 15-day adventure will go further east through the Balkans and seek out the path less travelled. From the splendour and charisma of the Croatian coast to off the beaten track through Albania and Montenegro with its awesome scenic coast to Ancient Athens and the Greek wonders of the cliff top monasteries of Meteora, Thermopylae and the Temple of Delphi. This trek encompasses the iconic cities of the Balkans – Sarajevo, Belgrade and Skopje – and touches on many cultures, old and new.
  • Halloween Trek (Busabout photo)

  • Transylvanian Halloween Trek – What better place to spend Halloween than in Dracula’s Transylvania? There is a spooky, mysterious atmosphere in this part of the East. This 7-day spooktacular trip will follow Dracula’s trail past castles, fortified churches, mountain chalets and quaint local villages. But it is Busabout’s ultimate fancy dress Halloween party in a Transylvanian mountain retreat that is the crowning glory to this once in a lifetime adventure!
  • Scottish Compass Buster (operated by HAGGiS) – All the creepy castles, all the crazy history and the eye bursting beauty? Yes? Then be brave and do the Compass Buster. The 10-day adventure spans Scotland from pub to mountain, from beach to monster and all the best bits in-between. And if that wasn’t enough, travellers will get to absorb a ton of knowledge from legendary guides.
  • All Ireland Rocker (operated by Shamrocker Adventures) – The ultimate Irish adventure! Clients on this 7-day adventure will explore the whole of the island, north and south, plus Inis Mór (the Aran Islands) hidden away off the west coast. This one has it all — traditional music, stunning scenery, ancient monuments and vibrant towns, plus great craic on the road and at night. This is a chance for travellers to see Ireland through Irish eyes.
