Here at Friendly Planet Travel, our employees don’t just make it possible for other people to see the world, but they get out there and do it themselves. In fact, we encourage the members of our Friendly Planet Travel family to take advantage of the amazing deals we offer our customers every day.
That’s why it’s not unusual to have a Friendly Planet Travel employee sitting across from you as you eat lunch on the Yangtze Cruise in China, or riding along beside you on the bus from Quito to Octavalo in Ecuador.
On Monday, Zach, one of our Friendly Planet Travel employees, will be boarding a plane for our Amazing Peru tour. You can follow along with Zach on all of his Peruvian adventures (or, at least the adventures where he has Internet access) by keeping your eyes on @Zach_FPTravel on Twitter. Isn’t technology amazing?
Bon voyage, Zach! Happy Tweeting!
Happy Tax Day, everyone. Chances are, you’re feeling pretty relieved today. Tax season is officially over, and — if you’re lucky — you’ve got a few extra dollars in your bank account right now.
To celebrate, the National Geographic Traveler put together a number of suggestions for spending your extra dough in some extra cool places. In the piece, they highlighted our Exotic Ecuador tour for only $1,259.
Eight days in Ecuador for only $1,259? That’s something we hope catches every world traveler’s eye, with or without an extra nudge from Uncle Sam.
International travel site Kathika put out a Twitter poll last week that asked “How is the economy affecting your vacation plans this year?”
You can see the results for yourself. What was most interesting to me was that the biggest slice of the pie (35 percent) was made up of people who are not canceling trips, but are looking for great deals. That’s good news for us because “great deals” is our middle name.
I just wrote about two of our sweetest deals, eight days in Ecuador for $1,259 and eight days in India for $999. So take a look!
