Cosmos LITE hasa-la-carte

NEWLY appointed Globus Family of Brands managing director for Australasia, Gai Tyrrell, last month unveiled a new Cosmos Lite touring option, combining the essential features of Cosmos trips with a personalised approach to daily itineraries. To roll out in 2019, Cosmos Lite initially features ten journeys combining major cities with lesser-known, undiscovered destinations across Europe.

Tyrrell said Cosmos Lite trips include city-to-city transportation in motor coaches with complimentary wi-fi, as well as accommodation in comfortable hotels with daily breakfasts. A professional tour director is available to help curate the best sightseeing, dining and entertainment options, along with a range of MyCosmos optional excursions which are available for purchase as desired.

“Cosmos Lite gives travellers an innovative and independent touring option, with a new way to see, explore and experience the world around them,” Tyrrell said. The program “takes care of getting travellers to each destination and coordinating accommodation, but what they fill their days with — and the activities they plan — are completely up to them”.

A new CosmosGo app is also available, offering a range of entertainment, dining, sightseeing and shopping suggestions. Tyrrell said Cosmos Lite holidays give autonomy back to the traveller to fill their days according to their specific interests, passions and budget, “without having to stress about the itinerary fundamentals.”
