European Waterways offers ‘Early Bird’ booking promotions
2020 Cruise Rates at 2019 prices
Offers include 10% Off on select 2020 Hotel Barge Charters
With an increase in demand for more exclusive experiential holidays driving a surge in hotel barge cruises, European Waterways is offering an ‘early bird’ promotion that lets guests lock in their 2020 cruises at 2019 prices.
Guests can also take an extra 10% off charter prices on select spring 2020 departures on hotel barges that include La Belle Epoque and L’Art de Vivre in Burgundy, Anjodi on the Canal du Midi, and La Bella Vita in Italy. All 2020 cruises must be booked by May 13, 2019 to qualify for these offers. Other restrictions may apply.
“As more and more people discover the joys of hotel barge cruising, some of our more popular departures are quickly selling for 2019. This can be disappointing for those who are set on visiting Europe at a specific time, perhaps to coincide with an annual local festival, an anniversary or family celebration,” said Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways. “By booking 2020 cruises now, they’ll have their pick of the regions and departure dates – and at today’s rates.”
Banks added: “If they’re planning a family holiday or group reunion, they can take advantage of our charter offers on select 2020 departures to enjoy even better value.”
The 10% off charter specials are available on La Belle Epoque for its April 5, 12 and 26, 2020 departures, providing savings of up to €5,820 (AU$9,190). Eligible 10% off charter departures onL’Art de Vivre include April 5, 12 and 19, 2020, with savings of up to €2,860 (AU$4,515). Anjodi departure dates include March 29, April 5, and April 12, 2020, with savings of up to €2,860 (AU$4,515). La Bella Vita is offering 10% off charters for its March 29 departure; as well as cruises starting April 5, 12, 19 and 26, 2020, with savings of up to €6,950 (AU$10,975).
Banks noted that the growing popularity of small passenger, experiential cruising has contributed to a more than 30% increase in bookings for European Waterways over the past three years. The company is continuously improving their guests’ experiences with enhanced excursions such as Birds of Prey demonstrations and exclusive private lunches “at home” with the aristocratic owners of historical chateaux and wineries.
European Waterways operates in regions that include France, Italy, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, and the U.K. For more information on these limited-time savings, visit https://bit.ly/2v7Fpj6.
