Everyone Is Booking a "Nearcation" With Contiki

Worldwide Travel Leader Offers More New Year's Eve Options in San Francisco and Las Vegas

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Contiki launched its 2010/2011 North America brochure, which includes itineraries in the USA, Canada and Mexico. From California to Calgary to Cancun, Contiki offers unique travel packages for 18 to 35-year-olds. With a recent trend towards "nearcations," (local or near vacations), Contiki provides affordable opportunities to hit the open road. Travelers that book a North America trip eight days or longer, by September 25, will receive $100 off.

"Contiki travel in North America is already up 5%," says Greg "Fish" Fischbein, President of Contiki Holidays. "It is further testament to the resiliency and flexibility of the youth market -- a slower economy does not stop them from traveling the world -- including the world found in their own backyard."

United States: Spend a few in-depth days in Los Angeles or take a 26-day roadie across the U.S. in a state-of-the-art luxury coach. With Contiki, you roll into adventures in any number of America's most dynamic spots: Hollywood, Lake Tahoe, New Orleans, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Central Park, the Grand Canyon, the Everglades, Graceland, the Mojave Desert, Times Square and Yosemite National Park

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the New York for New Year's Eve trip (already sold out for 2009), Contiki has added two hot new destinations and itineraries for this year -- Contiki travelers can spend four days ringing in the New Year in Las Vegas or celebrating Contiki-style in San Francisco.

Mexico: A rich cultural heritage, fantastic food, and diverse geography, Mexico fits everyone's taste. Revelers can soak up the sun on the white sandy beaches of Ixtapa and Acapulco and later tour the hidden paradise that is the Mexican Riviera. With Contiki, you can explore historical Mexico City by day and make it to an all-night party in Cancun.

Canada: If whitewater rafting, hiking, glacier exploring, zip-lining, canoeing and horseback riding sound like a good time, take a Contiki adventure in Canada. Challenge yourself in Canada's dynamic duo of provinces: Alberta and British Columbia. Their diverse physical beauty -- from Whistler to Banff to Vancouver, and points in between -- feature the greatest of the great outdoors.

All trip prices include transport, accommodation, sightseeing, breakfast daily and a number of other meals. While traveling with Contiki you also benefit from experienced tour managers that provide you a "locals only" run of all featured cities. Contiki's USA/Mexico/Canada 2009-2010 brochure can be viewed at It includes 20 unique tour itineraries ranging in duration from six to 26 days.
