If you’re a follower of Expat Explore, you’ll know that we run travel deals all year round. You’ll also know that once a year, around June to August, we run our single biggest travel deal of the year. Every year most of our followers go bonkers about it. In fact, a lot of the tours sell out in a couple of hours! But what is it and how does it work? How can you, potentially new to Expat Explore, prepare for this travel promotion? In this blog we aim to answer all your unanswered questions. If you can’t find the right answers to your questions, one of our expert agents is ready to answer your call! Reach out to us here.
So, what’s the fuss about?
The prices are super affordable. This is the big reveal of departure dates of all our tours for the following year, with their prices at their absolute lowest. The reason for this is our special pricing model. Explorers that book first are rewarded with the lowest-priced seats on every tour. That means the earlier you get in, the lower your rate. This approach, in combination with the excellent relationships we have with our suppliers, enables us to keep our tour prices as low as possible. We really care that you get the best value, the best deal, and the best experience at a very affordable rate. We want to make travel possible – for everyone.
Which tours are on sale?
Basically all of our tours. Currently, we have over 70 different tour packages available that travels to more than 60 countries on 5 continents: Europe, North America, South America, Africa and Asia. The best way to explore our tours is to find your way to our Find a Tour page. This campaign takes off when we release tour dates and rates for the following year. So, this year, we’ll be releasing all 2020 (and some 2021) departures.
How can I book?
You can book online, or have the option to book with one of our sales’ team members on the phone. They can also support you while you’re in online checkout over instant chat or on the phone. You only need to pay a 10% deposit or £50 (minimum amount) to secure your booking. Once this is paid, you can pay off your tour in instalments up until 45 days before you depart. We accept all major credit cards online at our secure checkout.
What do I need to book?
Your preferred date of travel. When you peruse our tours, scroll down to the dates and rates section to see the departure dates on offer. As soon as you’re in the checkout section, we need you to supply us with the personal details of the primary booker (names, email, billing address etc.). For the payment, we need your credit card details to process the booking.
If you’re a return traveller, also keep your previous booking number handy. We use this to verify that you are a returning customer and to apply your 10% return traveller discount.
How long does the promotion run?
The promotion is coming up soon and will run till seats sold out! Please keep an eye on our Facebook page in the coming weeks. If you haven’t already, make sure you’ve signed up to receive our email newsletters and you’ll be first in line to know about everything.
Is there a limit on the number of seats I can book?
There is no limit to the number of seats you can book, but there might be a limit on the number of seats you can book at a specific price. We are only selling a certain number of seats per price bracket per departure. Once those seats are gone the price goes up slightly.
I am a return customer. Am I still eligible for a 10% discount on these low prices?
Yes! We love our return customers. We’ll issue a 10% rebate on your checkout amount. All you have to do is supply your previous booking number in the checkout. We’ll verify your booking and apply the discount to your booking.
What else do I need to know?
All we can say for now is that we have some exciting surprises up our sleeve. Make sure you follow us on Facebook.
So many people think that international travel is too expensive. We want to argue the opposite! Travel is very possible, and it’s also not as expensive as you imagine. It all depends on how you travel. If you’re easy-going enough to join a group of really cool people from all over the world, you can make your money go a very long way. There are also so many other things you can do out on the road to save a lot of money. Stick with us, we’ll show you the way!
It’s our life’s mission to help you tick off your bucket list and make memories that will stay with you forever!
