Now is the time to book that USA holiday with the Discover the Americas Travel Expos kicking off around the country this month.
Would-be travellers can also expect 100s of hot deals on offer for holidays in Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico and South America.
Now in its ninth year, the free event is the only dedicated event where travel industry experts gather to offer travellers as much choice as possible so they can research, plan and book on the day with access to exclusive travel deals.
Expo attendees can expect a massive range of airfares, cruise itineraries, accommodation options, tours and more, all of which come with exclusive expo-only price tags.
America-bound travellers can also chat with tourism bodies including Brand USA and Visit USA, and attend free theatrette presentations from leading airlines, tour providers, cruise lines and hotel groups showcasing travel destinations and awarding prizes on the day.
Flight Centre Travel Group’s Tom Walley said USA and Hawaii are some of Flight Centre’s most popular overseas holiday destinations and a low airfare will really help offset the US dollar.
“While the dollar may fluctuate from time to time, one thing we can offer at the expo is a good value airfare and great deals of accommodation, tours, car hire and more.
“Airfares to Hawaii and Los Angeles are really affordable right now so this means travellers can still snap up a great value America holiday,” he said.
Mr Walley said more than 9,000 bookings were made at expos nationally in 2014 and event organisers are expecting to see more bookings in 2015 thanks to a range of exclusive expo-only offers.
“We always have a range of exclusive expo-only offers on airfares, accommodation, tours, car hire and other travel-related packages to sweeten the deal for those who have taken the time to visit the expo,” Mr Walley said.
Experienced travel consultants from Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Student Flights, Cruiseabout and My Adventure Store will be available on the day to take bookings and offer expert advice.
