We always link travel to that happy feeling of being on holiday. The sun, the sand, the endless mojitos, the adventure…but before all that, comes the booking. that can be downright scary! Have I booked my accommodation on the right day? What flights can I find within my budget? DOES EVERYTHING LINK UP?! WILL I BE STRANDED ON THE STREETS OF BARCELONA?!?!?…You know, the everyday rational, stressinduced thoughts you have when booking travel. But, with the new options and experts we have access to when we’re booking all things travel related, things are slowly becoming less *panic* and more rancho relaxo.

STA Travel’s Price Drop Promise will guarantee that you are getting the best price for your flights to paradise! If your flights booked through STA Travel drop in price, they will pay you back the difference in credit to spend with STA! Yes you heard that correctly!! Price drop = more money towards unique and fun activities on holiday, or even a cheeky accommodation upgrade!! Treat yo’self, right?

STA Travel are also the market leaders with their incredible Lay-By product, whereby you can layby ALL STA Travel exclusive ‘Blue Tickets’ by putting down only $99 (which also comes off your flight price, minus a $10 fee!) to keep it AT THAT PRICE!!

We imagine the visual of you realising how much money you’re saving is you rolling around on a bed of cash cackling and yelling, “I love STA Travel!!!”

Contiki, Tour partner of STA Travel, has been the go-to tour master of travel for many years, and is continuing to evolve with the travel industry well into the next generation of travellers! Last week, Contiki announced an exciting new trip style, dubbed “Independent Insider”. As the tagline states, this new style of travel is “designed for freedom”, and will allow travellers to build their own trip. Imagining that the Independent Insider trips are like building blocks, travellers can choose to do one block (three nights), two blocks (six nights), three blocks (nine nights) or full 12 night trips. Accommodation, activities, travel between destinations and unique local experiences that come with your usual Contiki tour will still be covered – you just get to do your trip exactly how you want! Sounds like a dream, right? AND this new style is available through STA Travel RIGHT. NOW.
