Thomson launches excursions website
18 September 2009
Booked your holiday but not sure what to do when you get there? Travelling on a budget and want to get your “extras” accounted for before you travel? Visit the new excursion website from leading travel company Thomson, thomsonexcursions.co.uk to research and book activities across the globe.
Open to everyone, whether they’ve booked a Thomson holiday or not, the website currently features some 631 excursions and experiences across 55 destinations! Activities range from swimming with dolphins and horse riding on the beach, to hot air balloon rides and a safari on the Masai Mara.
There are also excursions with a sustainable focus, with an emphasis on helping the local community. In Zakynthos, staff from the Turtle Protection League join our Turtle Island Cruise to ensure guests are informed about turtle conservation. In Kenya, our boat excursion ‘Swahili Blue’ to Wasini Island is run in conjunction with a local company with nearly 100 local employees. Proceeds go towards a community fund run by the ladies of the village.
In addition, the restaurant on the island where many guests choose to eat operates a project which supplies some of the schooling needs of the children and the salaries for two teachers.
thomsonexcursions.co.uk has been designed to make the search process as easy as possible: enter your destination and then select what type of activity you’re looking for with options including ‘history & culture’, ‘young & lively’, ‘families’ and ‘once in a lifetime’. To help narrow down your choice, a whole variety of information on each excursion is included, such as a tour overview, full itinerary, availability, photos and full details of what is/isn’t included in the price.
In addition to helping you budget and plan ahead, booking your excursion before you travel will also ensure that you’re not disappointed when you arrive on holiday as the popular activities do book up quickly! You’ll also have the peace of mind which comes with booking via the UK’s leading tour operator, as all our excursions are led by fully licensed and qualified guides.
Bookings can be completed online, or if you need further information to help you choose, you can contact the team at Thomson via phone. Tickets are emailed out prior to travel, and should your plans change once you arrive in resort, you will be able to contact the Thomson team to discuss your excursion at anytime during your stay.
