The operator is also adding a new tour to the Maasai Mara and Serengeti in east Africa, an itinerary to Argentina and Chile, as well as a trip sailing on a luxury “junk” in Vietnam’s Halong Bay.
Around the World in 30 Days, which is priced from £8,699pp, includes New York, Los Angeles, New Zealand, Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore, before ending with a safari in South Africa. It departs on selected dates from 1 November 2019 to December 2020.
Shearings’ Worldwide brochure includes a total of 42 long-haul itineraries – an increase of 13 trips compared with the previous programme.
Jane Atkins, managing director at Shearings Holidays, said: “This is our most extensive worldwide programme to date featuring some incredible destinations, experiences and tours.”
Atkins added that the new tours have been introduced following feedback from customer panels.
“They still have the urge to travel, and not just close to home – they also want to go further afield and experience more,” added Atkins.
“They also tell us they want to be assured that all elements of their holiday are taken care of so nothing is left to chance. This programme offers just that – all our tours have been researched, planned and arranged by our expert team, so all agents need to do is book it for their customers.”
Early-booking savings of up to £100pp are available for sales made before 31 July, while agents can also earn a £50 Love2shop voucher and a cuddly toy for every 2020 Worldwide booking made by 14 July.
