Abercrombie & Kent Previews 2019 Luxury Small Group Journeys as Booking Lead Times Increase
Save with Early Booking Discount of $750 off select East African Safaris
April 30, 2018
In response to luxury travelers planning further in advance, Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) has released 2019 dates and prices for the company’s most-requested journeys, along with an early booking incentive on safaris in East Africa. The 21 Luxury Small Group Journeys featured in Abercrombie & Kent’s 2019 Preview brochure include a new itinerary that combines the Galapagos with Machu Picchu, and a multi-country journey through Southeast Asia.
“In recent years, we have seen a significant increase in how far in advance guests are booking – from around 6 months in 2014 to nearly 8 months this year,” explains Abercrombie & Kent USA President Keith Baron. “Certain destinations in Africa and the Middle East are seeing a dramatic increase in interest, resulting in group departures quickly selling out. By booking early, guests have first choice of preferred travel dates and with A&K’s Guaranteed Departures, the peace of mind of knowing that every Luxury Small Group Journey is guaranteed to operate with a minimum of two guests.”
A Small-Group Travel Experience Like No Other
A&K Luxury Small Group Journeys are limited to no more than 18 guests, which opens the door to exclusive hotels and a world of insider access opportunities, from private museum openings to visits with local people in their own homes. The intimate group size allows A&K to choose the best five-star hotels, boutique lodges and camps in one-of-a-kind locations. And since each itinerary is designed around the small group size, guests enjoy benefits such as flight routings that allow for extra time on safari, longer stops in must-see sites and even multiple visits – such as seeing the Taj Mahal at sunrise and sunset.
