Intrepid has released its first 18 to 29s brochure, offering socially conscious millennials the chance to get way off-the-beaten-path with more than 80 travel experiences from flying high in Turkey to camping around Iceland and island-hopping in Croatia.
Brett Mitchell, Regional Director for Asia Pacific at Intrepid Travel, said the new range was created in response to feedback from young customers, who told the company that they wanted to travel responsibly with like-minded people their own age.
“Young travellers want to have authentic, immersive experiences with their peers. These tours are for travellers who don’t want to backpack in large dorm rooms or booze it up but instead, want to break down cross-cultural barriers and make a positive impact on the local communities they visit,” Mitchell said.
For every booking, Intrepid will make a donation to Friends-International, a leading social enterprise saving lives and building futures for marginalised young people around the world.
“The next generation of travellers has the power to make the biggest difference in the world so we are thrilled to give them the opportunity to see the world the Intrepid way,” Mitchell said.
“In usual Intrepid style, the small group tours include all the local elements, from leaders to transport, so our young travellers can do things their way, inspired by a local, and have the spontaneous moments that makes travel so addictive,” Mitchell added.
With a focus on sustainable, immersive local experiences, the new tours have been created especially for the next generation of responsible travellers who want to make a difference and connect with their fellow guests, while discovering new places and cultures.
Because millennials want big-time experiences without a big-time price tag, the 18 to 29s trips are priced at the same level as Intrepid’s Basix range, with tours starting from $390* for a five day tour of Cappadocia. $99 deposits are available on all 18 to 29s tours.
Highlights of Intrepid’s 18 to 29s brochure include:
