Titan cuts a westward trail

Titan’s second-edition 2016 Worldwide brochure includes one major U.S. addition: a ‘Frontiers and Pioneers – The Lewis and Clark Trail’ which showcases the natural beauty of the USA’s Pacific Northwest.


The tour follows the route taken by early 19th century intrepid explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their westward journey.

In 1803 the USA doubled the size of its territory, through the Louisiana Purchase, and the following year Lewis and Clark set out to map the new lands.

The wild scenery has changed little since their day, and this tour – including a seven-day cruise along the Snake and Colombia rivers – takes in Seattle, Portland and Mount Hood, exploring national parks, wineries and charming towns filled with frontier character.

Departing on September 27 2016, May 4 or June 1 2017, prices start from £3,999pp, including six nights in hotels, seven nights’ cruise on American Empress, 21 meals, nine excursions and visits, scheduled Icelandair flights via Reykjavik, the services of a Titan tour manager and Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service.



Premier peak booking incentives

Premier Holidays has a new booking incentive for agents, which is currently running alongside its 2016 campaign.


The independent tour operator is running a series of special offers to stimulate bookings for its core destinations for the peak booking period in January and February.

American holiday itineraries include a seven-night New York and Las Vegas holiday starting from £849pp and multi-centre trips such as nine nights in Washington, New York and Boston, including Amtrak train journeys, from £999pp, offering savings of up to £460 per couple.

The series of offers include savings and extras such as free nights, meals and room upgrades.

Each booking made with the operator through the peak period will be entered into the daily prize draw. Agents can win a huge selection of prizes including wine, shopping vouchers, concert tickets, spa days, a holiday to South Africa and an iPad mini.

They need to make a booking with Premier Holidays for a chance to land one of these prizes - the operator’s usual booking incentive also applies.

The USA offers initially expire on January 31, and will then be ‘re-costed’.
