Top 5 Cyber Monday Deals in Europe, Asia and Africa
Luxury Tour Company Friendly Planet is offering up to $1,100 off per person on 60 of its most popular packages. The trips include upscale excursions to India, Thailand, Turkey, Germany and South Africa. The price drop could be enough to make some of Friendly Planet’s more far-flung trips affordable to everyone.
Abercrombie and Kent is having a holiday sale that will start on Cyber Monday and last all week. The luxury travel firm is knocking as much as 50 percent off the price of some of its most popular packages. There is a nice mix of options: from safaris in Kenya and Botswana to cultural trips in China and India. This could be a great deal for people who are interested in the more expensive packages. For example, the eight-day Botswana excursion, which is normally $6,500, is only $3,495 during Cyber Week.
Adventure-seekers can get 50 percent off the Rhino Notching or Elephant Collaring experiences offered at andBeyond’s Phinda Private Game Reserve in South Africa if they book on Cyber Monday. These up-close wildlife encounters start at $1,713. This is a pretty rare opportunity, as most safari-goers never get the chance to tag along with naturalists during their conservation projects. To qualify, you have to stay a minimum of three nights at any of andBeyond's accommodations at Phinda.
The special Wine & Culinary Experience Package at the Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco Resort will be discounted 15 percent on Cyber Monday. A complimentary bottle of wine from the Serchio Valley is also provided at check-in. Book online using promo code ZJ9. The trip includes a wine tasting and a cooking class, so you can do more than simply drive around Tuscany tasting wine; you can actually get your hands dirty.
Italy-lovers can get up to 25 percent off the best available rates during Cyber Monday at Palazzo Victoria in Verona if they use promo code CYBMON16. This hotel is in an historic building that has the kind of inner courtyard that Verona is famous for. It also adds some chic fusion elements with a Zen garden and a contemporary lobby.
