Intrepid introduces £1 deposits
by Jessica Pook
Agents can take advantage of £1 deposits when they book a small group adventure with Intrepid by February 29, 2020.
The offer is valid on a variety of 2020 departures, from overland tours in Africa to active escapes in Asia and two-wheeled trips to Europe.
Included in the deal is an eight-day Explore Jordan trip, visiting desert landscapes in Wadi Rum, the ruins of Petra and Madaba’s mosaics, priced from £855pp.
Active clients can take on a 12-day Hike, Bike and Raft Nepal trip from £903pp. This round-trip from Kathmandu combines trekking through Gurung villages with mountain biking and river rafting down the Trisuli River, finishing with a yoga class to stretch out aching limbs.
The operator has also announced it has added Pakistan to its 2020 portfolio, following growing demand. The 17-day adventure from Islamabad to Lahore travels through the remote reaches of the Karakoram Mountains, includes searching for snow leopards in Khunjerab National Park and visits the ancient site of Taxila, a World Heritage-listed ruin. Pakistan Expedition is priced from £2,400pp and will run twice in 2020 from August 17 to September 2 and September 2-18, with two additional departures scheduled in 2021.
“We’re always looking to develop experiences that will get travellers out of their comfort zones, to break new ground and to broaden their horizons,” said Tara Kennaway, Senior Product Manager – Operations, Intrepid Travel. “We’re excited to be providing the global community with access to Pakistan, one of the world’s few countries that remain under-the-radar with tourists.”
