It started with a whole program dedicated to Africa, then it was four itineraries into Nepal. Now Trafalgar is expanding its 2019 portfolio again, with domestic trips around Australia.

For the first time in the company’s 72-year history, Aussies will be able to book Trafalgar trips in their backyards.

Speaking to media in Sydney this week, Trafalgar’s Chief Executive, Gavin Tollman, said that although Australia and New Zealand itineraries have been available to international travellers for some time, 2019 will be the first time they’re available to local holidaymakers.

He explained that the decision to launch locals trips to locals emerged out of customer demand, which has been growing every year.

“Domestic trips is something that our customers have been asked for more and more every year. They want to get Trafalgar experiences here in Australia.”
