Whether you’re a first-time traveller or an experienced adventurer, a CostSaver holiday offers unbeatable value without compromise.

CostSaver’s exciting itineraries across Europe are purposely designed with the perfect balance of guided sightseeing and free time at outstanding value. You can also further enhance your holiday with optional experiences, from fiery flamenco shows in Seville to VIP treatment at The Vatican.

With CostSaver (and the support of Trafalgar’s 70-year reputation and network), you’ll stay in the comfort of handpicked hotels and travel in luxury air-conditioned coaches. You can also forget the stress of lugging heavy suitcases across cobblestones and waiting in lengthy check-in queues – they take care of everything.

CostSaver’s most popular Italy itinerary, the eight-day Jewels of Italy tour, is perfect for those who have never been to the boot-shaped nation. Highlights span iconic cities and unique experiences, such as visiting the Colosseum and joining a traditional glassblowing workshop on Giudecca Island in Venice.

Travellers wanting to see as much of Britain and Ireland as possible will find the Britain and Ireland Delight tour ideal. The tour visits five countries in eight days, with sightseeing in the Georgian town of Bath, strolls along the shambles of York, and exploring the pretty medieval streets of Edinburgh with a Local Specialist included.

For something that will delight the young at heart, the Imperial Highlights tour visits the stunning Mirabell Gardens in Salzburg where some recognisable scenes from the Sound of Music movie were filmed.

When it comes to contrasting cultures, traditions and history, the Cossack Explorer trip takes guests to seven countries in 16 days, from Scandinavia to Germany and through the Russian cities of St Petersburg and Moscow. Discover imposing monuments, palaces, museums and fortresses, including the Tsar’s Winter Palace, Kremlin and Hermitage Museum.

New to CostSaver, and introduced last year due to the increase in popularity of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, is the Highlights of Scandinavia tour. This awe-inspiring journey delves into the secrets of Copenhagen and traverses the amazing Norwegian fjords of Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord.

Perhaps your idea of the perfect holiday is lapping up the Mediterranean sun on a Greek Island escape. The new Grecian Magic tour visits the mainland and the island of Corfu, and offers guests the option to extend their trip with a three-day Aegean cruise.
