July 24, 2020 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Travel agents can now book clients on all of APT’s luxury European river cruise and land journeys for 2021, with the award winning travel operator announcing the launch of its full program of itineraries across Europe. Not only has APT included airfares in its lead in prices, the company has responded to the current climate by implementing further measures to provide guests with the confidence to book.

“As with many operators, our first priority has been accommodating our guests who had booked for 2020 onto cruises and tours for 2021 so it’s even more important that our full 2021 Europe season was not open to new bookings until this time.” said Justine Lally, GM Marketing.

“We know it’s not a usual situation, but we are seeing early interest in Europe for 2021 and we want to have our product available and bookable for all agents to be able to secure preferred dates and cabins across the season for next year. By including airfares in the lead in prices, we ensure APT cruises remain a strong sales proposition for agents.” Lally added.

Responding to the current climate, the company has implemented further measures to provide guests with the confidence to book. For any new international bookings made between now and September 30, 2020 the company has reduced deposit amounts to $500 per person, as well an adjusting the final payment deadline to cancel, change or amend the booking up to 65 days prior, for added peace of mind.

There are over 60 itineraries available for sale including APT’’s flagship 15-day Magnificent Europe river cruise with prices starting from $6,995 per person, inclusive of return economy flights to Europe for bookings made by 31 August 2020. This always-popular river cruise travels between Amsterdam and Budapest aboard one of APT’s own Concerto River Ships, the only fleet in Europe to boast APT’s custom-designed Twin Balcony Suites, which allow guests to enjoy the passing views from both inside and out. APT’s Signature Experiences include a visit to Namedy Castle, a cocktail reception and concert at Vienna’s City Palace and a royal journey aboard the Grand Empress Steam Train.
