Do you have clients that love to travel with Insight but are not prepared to risk booking a trip further afield at this stage? Well, the lovely people over at Insight Vacations totally get it and are here with good news to share…

Insight Vacations has launched its new and exciting ‘Local Escapes’ collection, a selection of five carefully curated itineraries across Australia and New Zealand – offering guests everything they know and love about Insight, now closer to home. 

The new trips

Insight Vacations
NZ North Island

Clients who are ready to start travelling domestic and trans-Tasman can now book these close to home itineraries with Insight Vacations, visiting South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia, and the North and South Islands of New Zealand.

Guests can expect access to many exclusive experiences that the general public would not be able to experience as an independent traveller, such as behind-the-scenes discoveries, giving back to local communities, VIP winery tours and unique local dining experiences.  

Karen Deveson, Managing Director Insight Vacationscommented: “We are truly excited about our new homegrown collection. Whether you are after a food and wine lovers extra-long weekend experiencing the best South Australian wineries or a week’s getaway going behind the scenes and sampling the local produce of the North Island of New Zealand –  we have simply combined the best of the Insight way closer to home. 

Our guests have told us they are getting ready to start planning their local travel and we’ve listened to what they want. Our Local Escapes collection will provide them with a unique way of experiencing these regions.”

Karen Deveson, Managing Director Insight Vacations

Each itinerary will provide guests with an opportunity, not only to stimulate local economies, but to participate in a ‘Make Travel Matter’ experience.

The activity on each itinerary varies from visiting places that were devastated by the recent bushfires, visiting fire-affected koalas, understanding the importance of indigenous culture at Cape Naturaliste in WA, and contributing to reforestation efforts.

Health protocols

Insight Vacations has recently reviewed its health and safety protocols to ensure the well-being of all guests. Coaches will seat a maximum of 22 passengers to ensure safe physical distancing along with enhanced hygiene measures on and off the coach, which will be managed seamlessly by Travel Directors. 

Agents are reminded that Future Travel Credits may be redeemed to book these Local Escapes trips. Insight Vacations has also introduced $99 deposits* and the ability to change your mind just 30 days out from departure and receive a full refund.* 

These are just a few things we’ve introduced to make it easier for our trade partners to be able to encourage their clients to book with confidence and return to travelling with peace of mind.”
