Costsaver, a company aimed at independent travelers, has added Egypt to its product portfolio and has unveiled five new European itineraries for the 2020 season. The travel company, whose trips include accommodations, in-destination transportation, and expert travel directors plus time to tailor each experience, now offers over 40 itineraries.
“From launching Egypt and expanding into more of Portugal, Italy, Turkey, and Scotland, we’re recognizing where our customers, both new and returning, want to go and we’re making sure that we’re ready to take them there in 2020,” says Melissa DaSilva, Trafalgar USA president, in a statement. “Guests are telling us that they love the reassurance of the essentials, but it’s really the flexibility of more options that meet their needs and wants when they travel, so we’re excited to be giving them what they’re looking for, at a great price that they couldn’t get if they booked it themselves.”
The new, nine-day Footsteps of the Pharaohs trip highlights essential Egyptian experiences, including sailing the Nile, seeing the treasures of Tutankhamun, and exploring the Great Pyramids of Giza while allowing travelers time to be immersed in history, enjoy local delicacies and colorful souks at their own pace.
