TrekAmerica – the leading specialist tour operator to the USA, Canada and Central America for 18-35yr olds offers an incredible range of cost-effective small group tours, with truly epic itineraries. With tours ranging from 3 to 80 days, including different accommodation types, levels of adventure and included activities, there’s a tour to suit everyone – offering a cost and time effective way to ‘Trek America’. www.trekamerica.co.uk
“Recently we’ve seen an upweight in bookings for our longer trips, predominantly by those looking to head off on a ‘gap year’ or those planning on volunteering, studying or working in the Americas,” said Richard Hanson – Managing Director. “At TrekAmerica we appreciate that booking such a long trip is a big deal, which is why offer low deposits, flexible bookings*, the option to pay in instalments and an excellent online support system for those who are unsure about hitting the road alone. As the bulk of our customers are solo travellers, we make sure that those booked on to the same trip can chat online and ‘buddy up’ pre-trip; and provide plenty of reviews, blogs and vlogs from past Trekkers giving an insight in to what life on the road is really like, Trek style!” he continued.
All tours are run by enthusiastic and knowledgeable local leaders, who not only drive the group between destinations and take care of the itineraries, but also add those extra special bits of local knowledge, great recommendations for free time and hidden-gem stop offs that make each Trek different from the last. With everything taken care of, all Trekkers have to do is hop on the van, sit back, take in the views and relax with a bunch of young, like minded travellers who will inevitably become lifelong friends.
