Topdeck’s most popular fes5val trips for the last two years have been Oktoberfest, and due to other upand-coming fes5vals quickly gaining popularity, these trips are expected to soar again in bookings for 2016/17. Accommoda5on and travel arrangements are oQen hard to organise around these sorts of events, so Topdeck pre-organises these trips to save Topdeckers 5me, allowing them to enjoy the fes5val hassle free.
With a range of op5ons on how to choose their trip type, passengers can either do a fes5val trip or explore more of Europe on an extended adventure such as the Summer Fun and Sailing trip, which on certain departures goes through Munich during Oktoberfest, another example of Topdeck’s “your trip your way” mantra.
General Manager for Asia Pacific Joe Ponte said “Everyone who does a fes5val trip shares common goals – to meet like minded people, experience a country’s culture and 5ck off a major bucket list experience that they’ve been wan5ng to do for years”.
“Passengers have been so excited to get to Munich for Oktoberfest that they’ve slept outside, tents packed, breakfast ready to go and leQ ahead of 5me at the crack of dawn – all just to get there sooner”.
“Our trips allow Topdeckers to experience a country’s personality and life like a local as they get a unique peek behind the door of their celebra5ons”.
Topdeck’s exclusive fes5val trips start from $113 per day, booking early is crucial to reserve limited seats.
