Get Extra Spring Break Dollars from Contiki

January 8, 2009

I survived my passport photos yesterday, although I look a little bit like I had them taken in a Siberian prison, and now that my own travel papers are in order, I’m ready to pass on some more useful information to you.

map_europeI’ll let you know up front that this deal is for Canadian students only. Apologies to my American brothers and sisters, but I’ll have something else for you soon.

Right now, book a Contiki Europe tour that’s 25 days or longer with Travel CUTS and get $200 or $300 back, depending on the length of the trip.* Check the footnote below for more of the dates and details, or visit Travel CUTS for all the information.

Yes, this is one of those things where you have to spend money to make money, but if you’re planning a Europe trip anyway, you should do whatever you can to maximize your travel dollars.

Speaking of maximizing your cash, have you read about Iceland? It used to be one of the most expensive place you could visit, but due to economic troubles there (and everywhere), things have suddenly become far more affordable. It still might not qualify as a “cheap” trip, but it’s worth looking into if you’re really interested.

There are hostels in Iceland that run around US $10 a night (more if you want a fancy, private room), and while you may not think of it as an adventure destination, Iceland does offer river rafting, ATV quad biking, snorkelling, and plenty of hiking.

If you go, say “hey” to Bjork for me.


*Book & pay in full between Jan 1 – Mar 31, 2009 for a Contiki European Tour 25 days or longer departing before June 1st, 2009 and receive a pre-paid VISA Gift Card to spend on your vacation.
