Tailor-made Asia Travel Hits Record Levels

August 4, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Tailor-made Asia travel is more popular than ever with Australian travellers, claims Chimu Adventures’ sister company GetAboutAsia, who have seen record growth for their tailor-made tours with sales having almost tripled since the company was born four years ago.

The company believes that shifting consumer trends, such as a rising interest in sustainability and niche experiences, are the main factors contributing to this trend.

“These latest statistics show that travelleres are, more than ever, looking beyond the traditional package holiday” said Chad Carey, co-founder of GetAboutAsia.

“While we’re used to travellers pushing the boundaries in our more off-the-beaten track destinations in Latin America and Antarctica, seeing this same trend happening to such extent in Asia shows us that Asia has never been further from being the stereotypical “Aussie holiday” he added.

Whilst the Asia specialist operator has seen solid growth of interest in all tours and excursions, demand for special interest activities, such as rail journeys, river cruises and rural tours, has been particularly strong.

A specialist operator providing travellers with personalised travel options throughout Asia, GetAboutAsia’s approach follows on from Chimu’s well-established business model offering fully flexible, guaranteed and private travel experiences.

With personalisation and authenticity at the core of its philosophy, GetAboutAsia’s trip styles cater for a diverse range of travellers and their desires, from 3-star Standard style trips to 4-star Superior and 5-star Deluxe voyages.

Whether it’s taking in the iconic sights of Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China, cruising down the calm waters of Halong Bay or taking Asia’s road less travelled to the Silk Road, hiking the Himalaya or visiting monasteries and spiritual temples in Bhutan, the options to explore with GetAboutAsia are endless – be it by land, train or cruise, staying in beach resorts, jungle huts or eco lodges.

“Those who know us will know that personalisation is of paramount importance to us. We don’t like to trick and drag our guests around the same old tourist circuit as we think the best travel memories are created as a result of authenticity and fun – and it’s this mantra that has guided the design of our suggested itineraries” said Mr Carey.

“For GetAboutAsia, just like for all Chimu travel, our valued agent partners are at the heart of everything we do. We want to give the best, and only the best, of market expertise to our industry and, in order to be able to do so, GetAboutAsia employs a completely separate set of dedicated Asia Destination Specialists who go above and beyond to make sure both agents and their clients get nothing but the most outstanding experience at every step of the booking process – and on the ground.”

A brand new GetAboutAsia brochure will be available through Tifs from 14th August 2017.
