“The Strong Dollar is Worth Celebrating!”
There’s No Better Time to Visit Europe …The Globus Family of Brands Showcases New Deals to Reinforce This Idea

LITTLETON, Colorado – January 8, 2015 – News this week of a stronger dollar led the Globus family of brands to unveil new deals for travelers to the UK as well as feature value-focused Italy getaways.

“For those American travelers waiting for the perfect opportunity to travel abroad, it has arrived,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands.  “The dollar is stronger than it’s been in years which means everything from airfare and a Prosecco tasting in the Italian countryside to a romantic dinner out in Paris and pint of beer in an Irish pub is less expensive for Americans than it’s been in years.  The strong dollar is worth celebrating!”

To revel in the increased value of the dollar, this week the Globus family of brands launched a promotion for Globus and Monograms travelers to SAVE $1,000/couple on select air-inclusive vacations to Britain & Ireland.  Some popular packages benefitting from this deal include:  Monograms’ 7-day A Week in London and London & Edinburgh as well as Globus’ 7-day Best of Southern England and 9-day Britain Sampler tours.

And for travelers looking for a great deal in Italy, Globus is touting its NEW, 9-day Italian Sampler itinerary as well as its 8-day Italian Vista tour.  Both are priced at approximately $200 a day –25 percent less than the average Italy vacation.

“At about $200 a day, we’re inviting travelers to savor the sweet life in Italy,” said Born.  “On these vacations, they will never lift a finger – or a bag.  Even better?  We’ll get them in front of the lines at such must-see sites as the Colosseum and behind-the-scenes with included Local Favorites.”
