Dan Austin has been a busy man. Coming off what has been Austin Adventures’ best year ever, the company is poised to achieve new heights in 2018 while launching something totally fresh, innovative and important. But more on that later. First, let’s look at what else is new for 2018.
- New Trips and Destinations! They’ve added a lineup of 11 new domestic and international itineraries that represent one of the most impressive expansions in the company’s nearly four-decade history. New multisport trips will be offered in the US & Canada, Africa, Asia, Europe and South America. Check out the exciting lineup at https://www.austinadventures.com/new-2018-departures/.
- New Women-Only Adventures. Led by acclaimed guide and outdoors woman Kasey Austin, the company has announced three brand-new, action-packed itineraries created just for women for the 2018 season. Destinations include Costa Rica, Utah’s Bryce & Zion National Parks and Montana’s Yellowstone Country. “Women are taking on the world of adventure travel by storm!” – Austin.
- Travel Agent Bookings Have Doubled! A dedicated focus on the travel trade has paid off and 2018 stands to be another record-breaking year for agent bookings. Being an active member of Virtuoso Network as a Preferred Tour Operator and Partner has been a major factor in this growth.
- New Consumer-Friendly Reservation Policies. Guests can now change their minds 14 days from booking and more than 90 days out and still get a full refund. Plus, there are softer policies on cancelling or transferring to another trip 45+ days out. Their industry-best money-back satisfaction guarantee is still in place.
Ready for some BIG news for 2018? Now remember, this is just a teaser and more details will be announced in January along with a more formal launch. Austin Adventures is teaming up with the leading lifestyle brand Life is Good™ to offer a series of ‘Life is Good Vacations’ which will create transformative travel experiences connected to nature and rooted in the practice of joy and optimism. See: http://info.austinadventures.com/life-is-good-partnership/.
“Life is truly good. Let’s enjoy it and expand our possibilities by exploring and experiencing compelling destinations in a manner both positive, rewarding and empowering,” explains Dan Austin. Four tour locations have been scheduled for 2018: Montana, Utah, Canadian Rockies and Costa Rica.
