Is the economy affecting your vacation plans?

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!

Amazing deal: eight days in India for $999 complete

I’ve already told you how we manage to come up with such low prices for such great locations. Now, as promised, here’s the first in a series of great exotic travel deals that you can find only at Friendly Planet Travel.
If the locales and amenities seem too good to be true at these prices, I encourage you to talk to our travelers. I’m happy to put you in touch with a long list of people who have experienced our tours, and can validate their incredible value and quality.
First up: eight days in India for $999. This is our famous Taj Mahal Express tour, and it’s one of our most popular destinations. In fact, in the first eight weeks of our reduced price offering, more than 900 people signed up for the trip!

This exquisite eight-day group tour package includes roundtrip airfare from New York, four-star hotel accommodations, and guided tours of India’s “Golden Triangle,” including the Taj Mahal; Jaipur, the “pink city;” Delhi; and Agra.
That $999 package price also includes all fuel surcharges, all transfers, a daily buffet breakfast, a farewell dinner, and no credit card surcharges. Compare that to about $1,400 for roundtrip airfare alone, a “deal” found on Shop around. Compare. You’ll see this is the best complete package deal to India available anywhere.
The sights, sounds, and smells of India are truly some of the most phenomenal in the world. And I promise you, the Taj Mahal Express is one of the most amazing cultural experiences of a lifetime.
Again, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, no matter how small, about the Taj Mahal Express, or if you would like to talk to some folks who have enjoyed the tour.
