Contiki’s popular Rock Around the World incentive is back and this year it’s taking Travel Agents to two of Europe’s top sellers – Portugal and Spain.

In its 20th year, the trade famil is promising to be one of the biggest yet with 20 consultants flying to the other side of the globe where they’ll not only get a taste of the Portuguese and Spanish culture but also local sounds at the three-day NOS Primavera Sounds music festival in Porto.

Consultants will party along with festival headliners include Bon Iver, Aphex Twins and Justice before journeying through Barcelona, San Sebastian, Burgos, Salamanca and Madrid.


Contiki Australia’s Managing Director, Katrina Barry said Rock Around the World continues entire Agents every year because music and travel both create new memories, bring people together and trigger various emotions.

“From seeing Bon Jovi in Dublin to R.E.M in Moscow, we’ve taken Agents all over the world and this year we’re excited to announce that Spain and Portugal will be under the spotlight.”

“These destinations are amongst our top sellers in Europe and we know agents will enjoy soaking up the music, sunshine and sangria in its spiritual home.

“This is the trade incentive of the year so I wish agents the best of luck.”
