Saga offers peace of mind with Guaranteed Departures on all escorted tours

  • Saga guaranteeing all departures across touring range
  • Saga launches new Escorted Tour Brochure for 2018

With the upcoming launch of their Escorted tours campaign in June, Saga Holidays are guaranteeing all departures from across their touring range.

The new Saga Escorted Tours Brochure for 2018, features an inspiring and wide-ranging portfolio of Escorted Tours across the globe. From the coasts of Croatia, to trekking in the foothills the Himalayas, or even Gorilla Trekking in Uganda, Saga tours are not just holidays but unforgettable experiences. 

From visiting India’s Golden Triangle to Island hopping around Croatia, customers can feel reassured knowing every date will be guaranteed regardless of the numbers on the tour giving travellers and agents peace of mind when making decisions about booking.

Saga’s head of trade sales, Iain Powell commented “The touring market is growing significantly and the agents we work closely with have been pivotal in the sales of these products for Saga. However, one of the pinch points for agents and customers alike is when tours from any tour operator are cancelled due to low numbers. Agents help their customers choose tours that will give them new and exciting experiences and there’s nothing worse than when the customer then has to be told that this trip is no longer going ahead.

“Whilst customers know the decision is out of the agent’s hands, we’re conscious that this can end up having an impact on the relationship between the customer and the agent, but also can lead to both being more cautious about booking with that tour operator again.  We are therefore delighted to announce that we are now able to guarantee all of our escorted tour departures so that agents and customers can have the peace of mind that if they book their trip with Saga the trip will go ahead.”
