Tailor-made holiday options in the US and Canada
18 September 2009
Tour operator Thomson Tailormade has launched a new America & Canada brochure, offering a widespread selection of quality hotels and holidays to the USA and Canada. From cosmopolitan cities to stunning scenery, the extensive programme guarantees the perfect holiday for every taste and budget.
Thomson Tailormade specialises in flexible durations and bespoke holidays whilst also offering great value. Selected hotels in the America & Canada brochure include special offers such as free nights, free child stays and meal offers. Clients can also benefit from Thomson Tailormade’s specialist service, offering specific suggestions for each destination including restaurants, excursions, sightseeing and shopping.
Sarah Lax, Programme Director for America and Canada at Thomson Tailormade says ‘Thomson Tailormade customers are increasingly looking to book non euro destinations for their holidays this year and the USA is one of our top selling destinations despite the strengthening US dollar. We are confident that our customers will continue to travel to the US as we still believe it represents good value for money. With our extensive range of tours and multi-centre options we are seeing an increase in these bookings not to mention the positive effect President Obama has had on the popularity of the US.’
