Travel Expo coming to your city - or one near you





TRAVEL EXPO 2015
Save on your next holiday with exclusive travel deals

If you're looking to mark 2015 in the calendar for a much needed holiday then Travel Expo 2015 is for you.
 
The annual Travel Expo brings together Australia's leading travel suppliers, airlines, tourism bodies and tour operators to offer travellers the chance to pick up special one-off bargains on airfares, tours, family trips, cruises and accommodation, offered exclusively for the event.

All housed under one roof, the Travel Expos have been designed so that Aussies can research their favourite destinations, compare deals and speak to travel professionals.


"This kind of event is becoming rarer for people who have a desire to travel, to see the world and explore. Sure, you can do some research online, but when can you ever go and talk to the experts all under the one roof at the one time?" says national events director Robyn Blacklock
.

The Travel Expos offer would-be travellers unprecedented access to travel experts but attendees can also snag one of the many expo deals on offer that can't be found elsewhere, potentially saving customers hundreds off the cost of a holiday.

"The thing that has brought people to the show over the last two decades is the fact that there are deals on offer you can't find anywhere else," says national product manager Rod Menzler.

Travel consultants from Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Cruiseabout, My Adventure Store and Student Flights will be available on the day to help with bookings.

Coach touring specialists Insight and Cosmos, adventure experts Intrepid, Geckos and Peregine, and major hotel chains such as Club Med will also showcase their best value deals. Even representatives from the happiest place on earth, Disneyland, will be there.

Admission is free and leading airlines, tour providers, cruise lines and hotel groups will also be on hand to showcase travel destinations, the latest trends and hotspots in free theatrette presentations.

Sail the Chindwin River in Myanmar for 20% less with Sanctuary Retreats.




Sail the Chindwin River in Myanmar for 20% less with Sanctuary Retreats.  

Sanctuary Ananda, the luxurious new boutique river cruiser from Sanctuary Retreats, set sail on its maiden passenger cruise in Myanmar in November 2014.

Bringing new levels of luxury to cruising in this beautiful destination, Sanctuary Retreats' latest offering showcases original Burmese design and contemporary chic in an atmosphere of five-star comfort.

Custom-built using traditional Myanmar materials and featuring just 21 beautifully appointed suites, spread over four decks, this floating palace boasts all the comforts that go hand in hand with 5-star luxury.

The Sanctuary Ananda offers one of the highest staff-to-guest ratios on the river, allowing guests to enjoy the mysteries of Myanmar with a choice of six itineraries led by expert guides.

The vessel is the only all-balcony (fully furnished), all-suite ship on the Ayeryarwady River, with facilities including an on-board gym and spa, a well-stocked library, gallery, lounge, cocktail bar, and plunge pool.

SPECIAL OFFER

Right now Travellers booking a berth on the Sanctuary Ananda for a 10-night adventure on the Chindwin River before 8 March 2015 can save up to 20% per couple.

This journey ventures to the northern reaches of Myanmar along the Ayeyarwady's great tributary, the Chindwin, in an area that is completely untouched by tourism. The region is wild and remote and only accessible for a few weeks of the year when the water levels swell from the monsoon rain. Explore orchid-rich jungles, distant monasteries, forgotten villages and ancient towns almost as far as the Indian border, such as Mawleik, Kalewa and the caves of Po Win Taung in Monywa, where life has changed little in centuries.

10-night cruises depart: 26 July 2015, 5 August 2015 and 25 August 2015.
