July 2023

Entire Travel Group is set to disrupt the escorted coach touring sector with the launch of an exclusive new European program that slashes the typical price per-day, while delivering guaranteed departures and English-only guides on high-quality itineraries covering Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Morocco and the Greek Islands.

The company’s new Entire Group Journeys will carry a maximum of 24 passengers in luxury coaches, with accommodation in centrally located four- and five-star properties, and itineraries designed to give guests the space to explore destinations, with two- or three-night city stays.

Sales & Market Director Greg McCallum says that after pioneering pre-designed independent holiday packages, Entire Travel Group was now using its expertise and insight to shake up the ever-popular escorted coach touring sector.

“As part of a strategic alliance with one of Europe's largest and most-respected tour operators, we have designed and delivered escorted group journeys that meet the specific needs of Australian travellers,” says McCallum. “The result is a high-quality coach touring product, offered at exceptionally competitive prices and distributed exclusively through our new Entire Group Journeys division.”

Entire Group Journeys start from $276 per person per day with all of the inclusions. Examples include Northern Spain Journeys (10 days from $2,761 pp twin share / equating to $276 per day), Landscapes of Spain and Moroccan Journeys (16 days from $4,715 pp twin share / $295 per day), Southern Spain & Barcelona Journeys (10 days from $3,294 pp twin share / $329 per day) and Andalusia Journeys (eight days from $2,406 pp twin share / $300 per day).

McCallum says Entire Group Journeys departures will be showcased to the trade in a comprehensive brochure in September. In the meantime, agents can quote and book Entire Group Journeys through the company’s website.

"Quotes are delivered with travel agent branding, with day-by-day itinerary information and in full colour. We have also designed an agent toolkit which agents can use to promote our Group Journeys to their own database.

“In addition, we have introduced an exclusive Entire Group Journeys phone-line and e-mail address for speed and efficiency when travel agents call us to book or make enquiries.”

To celebrate Entire Travel Group’s aggressive expansion into the escorted coach touring arena, the company is offering of $500 per couple off any of its new European coach tours booked by 31 August. In addition, every travel agent booking an Entire Group Journey through the company’s website by 31 August receives a $100 Digital Mastercard direct to their mobile phone.

McCallum says one of the most attractive features of Entire Group Journeys is that all travel agents have the opportunity to secure exclusive departures for their own clientele with no financial commitment until six months prior to departure.

Meanwhile, plans are already afoot to expand Entire Group Journeys’ destination coverage to include Croatia, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt.

 All of Entire Group Journeys are available to quote and book 24/7 through Entire Travel Group’s website, and all are supported by the company’s ground-breaking Peace of Mind Booking Plan.
