Tuesday 16 October 2018

Worldwide Motorhoming Holidays from The Camping and Caravanning Club has launched two new tours for 2019-20.

The first tour, ‘Highlights of Sri Lanka’, is a shorter version of the popular ‘Splendours of Sri Lanka’ tour, first launched in October 2017. The new tour, as with the longer 30-day tour, is chauffeur-driven and covers all of the country’s top attractions in just 14 days.

The tour taps into the boom in overseas visitors to Sri Lanka; the number of inbound visitors to this island nation have increased from just over a million in 2012, to 2.7 million in 2017 and is expected to grow to 3 million or more by 2022.*

Richard Grimsdale, Travel Services Director at Worldwide Motorhoming Holidays, said: “Our chauffeur-driven motorhome tour to Sri Lanka that we launched last year was a UK first. To build on that we have introduced a shorter 14-day tour that’s perfect for travellers who are short on time but are still keen to see all the country has to offer.

“It is a first for Worldwide as we are testing long-haul for a shorter period of time. Early responses have been overwhelmingly positive.”

Alongside popular longstanding tours to destinations such as Argentina, South Africa, Canada and Japan, Worldwide’s new ‘New York and New England in The Fall’ tour spans 22 days and has been added to the Worldwide travel programme in direct response to customer feedback. In a recent survey, the region was selected as the most popular destination to explore by motorhome. The tour includes three nights in New York, an excursion to the island of Martha’s Vineyard - the affluent summer resort of New Yorkers and Bostonites plus a trolley tour of Acadia National Park, on the stunning Maine coast.

The tour spans more than 1,400 miles, starting and ending in the bright lights of New York City.

Richard added: “Both of these tours feature great excursions, a number of meals and motorhome hire.

“At Worldwide Motorhoming Holidays we listen to our holidaymakers when putting together new tours and itineraries, and are pleased to introduce our new New England tour as a direct response to the feedback we have received.”

The New York and New England in the Fall tour starts from 14 September 2019 with places available for a maximum of 15 units. Splendours of Sri Lanka departs on 1 November 2019. Bookings for The New York and New England in the Fall tour will open at the upcoming Motorhome & Caravan Show 2018, NEC Birmingham from 16-21 October. Visit the Worldwide Motorhoming Holidays stand (9-99) on each day of the show for holiday inspiration and advice from the Worldwide Travel Specialists.
