Toronto, ON / ACCESSWIRE / April 15, 2014 / The days are getting longer, the snowstorms are fewer, and while many of us look ahead to summer outings, hard-working Canadian students are 'heads down,' crammed into busy campus libraries to study for high-pressure final exams.
This spring, Contiki (http://Contiki.com), the original youth travel brand, is marking the end of a long, arduous Canadian winter with airfare offers and last-minute holiday deals that make a summer Europe trip this year's most coveted graduation gift. Millennials will be even more eager to complete their finals and start packing their bags, knowing that in just a few short weeks they could be off to Europe to take in the Eiffel Tower's panoramic views, sip cappuccinos in Rome's grand piazzas, or dive into crystal clear waters on the Greek islands.
"We know that "gifting" is hugely popular - sometimes it's parents, grandparents and favourite aunts & uncles who are interested in rewarding a young traveller with a trip, or millennials eager to treat themselves to an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime holiday and invigorate their souls after a long winter," says Contiki Canada President, Brad Ford. "Since price is a big motivator for these travellers, extra savings go a long way, providing that added motivation to book a trip now, and a rush of adrenalin knowing that a new adventure is only weeks away."
Contiki is providing last-minute deals for departures on 19 of the most popular European holidays, for savings of up $561 - that's 30% off! Indulge a budding wanderlust with 13 days of Mediterranean Highlights like azure blue waters, swanky casinos, flamenco dancing and Riviera boutiques, 8 leisurely days of Turkish Sailing on the Turquoise Coast, or experiencing a mix of cosmopolitan cities like Paris, Amsterdam and Rome on the 15-day Best of Europe holiday!
