World Expeditions Launches New Travel Company for Youth Market – Yomads

November 25, 2013 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Australian adventure travel specialist, World Expeditions, has joined two other major international travel companies to establish Yomads Travel, an adventure travel brand, tailored specially for travellers in their 20’s and 30’s.

Yomads’ itineraries will offer an intimate and unique experience for youthful travellers keen to see hidden and inspiring corners of the world with a group of adventure-goers from around the globe. All trips will be guided in English.

BBaumeler Reisen (Switzerland), SNP Natuurreizen (the Netherlands) and World Expeditions (Australia, North America, UK and NZ) have combined their global expertise and experience to deliver truly unique travel experiences for what they see as a neglected segment of the market.

As well as being well-priced, multi-activity and adhering to strong environmental principles,   Yomads’ itineraries will include lots of optional activities allowing participants to retain their individual freedom, all high on the wish lists of the elusive youth market.  Itineraries have been crafted by – or in close consultation with – people within the target age bracket.

The first Yomads’ departures are scheduled for March 2014 and itineraries are finalised for destinations including Namibia, South Africa, Alaska, China, India, Indonesia, Cambodia/Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Greece, Turkey, Slovenia, Georgia, Iceland, Morocco, New Zealand and Peru.

Whether you want to canoe down the Amazon River, make Tibetan momos in Nepal, stay in a river camp under the stars in India, or trek to Machu Picchu, Yomads offer big adventures with a small environmental footprint.

According to World Expeditions CEO, Sue Badyari, who has been involved with the new company’s branding and product development, the global collaboration between the four international partners is the perfect platform from which to launch Yomads.

“We recognize that travelling with like-minded companions is a highlight of the Yomads experience,” Ms Badyari said.  “and we’re excited by the idea that a ‘Yomad’ has friends on every corner of the globe, or will have after a Yomads’ trip.”

“Yomads understands that one size does not fit all and that young independent travellers like their freedom to roam,” Ms Badyari said.

“While there are structured activities in each itinerary, there’s plenty of individual choice as well,” she said.  “Living the Yomads’ lifestyle means that travellers will have the time and freedom to live in the moment – to catch a sunset from the top of that hill they passed earlier, visit the local cafe where the colours and smells were so intriguing, relax and read a book around the campsite, or hit the local bar. And they are also assured that they won’t be travelling with people their parents’ age!”
