Cosmos Lite claims ‘first á la carte tour’ distinction

September 14, 2018 Headline News No Comments Email Email

The Globus family of brands has launched what it claims is “the world’s first á la carte tour style” – a new category of personalised touring called Cosmos Lite that lets travellers add their choice of options to itineraries.

Cosmos Lite combines the essential features of a Cosmos tour with a personalised approach to daily itineraries, which the organisers say offers “hassle-free travel with the freedom to tailor a trip to individual interests, budget and pace”.

New for 2019, Cosmos Lite is unveiling 10 innovative itineraries that combine major cities with undiscovered, lesser-known destinations across Europe.

Cosmos Lite packages include:

  • City-to-city transportation (deluxe motor coaches with complimentary Wi-Fi)
  • Comfortable hotels (a base for independent exploration)
  • Daily breakfasts
  • Professional Tour Director (to point out the best sightseeing, dining and entertainment)
  • MyCosmos optional excursions (available for purchase)
  • CosmosGo mobile app (fuel for free time with suggestions to make the most of each day)

“Cosmos Lite gives travellers an innovative and independent touring option, with a new way to see, explore and experience the world around them,” said managing director Australasia for Globus family of brands, Gai Tyrrell.

“Cosmos Lite takes care of getting travellers to each destination and coordinating accommodation, but what they fill their days with – and the activities they plan – are completely up to them.”

With a range of MyCosmos excursions – such as a cooking class in Lisbon, a guided tour of Genoa or a bike tour of the Iron Curtain from Bratislava – Cosmos Lite travellers have the option to purchase only the tours and activities they find interesting – or none at all if meandering sightseeing is more their style.

If they need guidance on what to see or do, an expert tour director will accompany guests as they travel between destinations to offer suggestions for sightseeing, dining and entertainment.

For travellers who want to wonder and wander at their own pace, the new CosmosGo app, offering entertainment, sightseeing, dining and shopping suggestions, is at their fingertips. Another welcome change from the typical tour schedule includes most Cosmos Lite excursions starting later in the morning.

“Free of commitments and full of possibilities, Cosmos Lite’s á la carte touring invites travellers to design each day with free time, me time or see time,” Tyrrell said.

“A Cosmos Lite vacation gives autonomy back to the traveller to fill their days according to their specific interests, passions and budget – without having to stress about the itinerary fundamentals like transport and accommodation that we take care of for their ease, comfort and discovery.”

In 2019, Cosmos Lite is introducing 10 brand new holiday packages in Europe:

  • Spanish City Explorer (9 days, priced from AUD 1209)
  • Spanish Heritage Explorer (8 days, priced from AUD 939)
  • Portugal Explorer (7 days, priced from AUD 1009)
  • Italian Explorer (8 days, priced from AUD 1209)
  • Northern Italy Explorer (8 days priced from AUD 1209)
  • Veneto to Vienna Explorer (7 days, priced from AUD 1209)
  • Danube Explorer (8 days, priced from AUD 1209)
  • England Explorer (7 days, priced from AUD 1209)
  • Scotland Explorer (7 days, priced from AUD 1209)
