for Travelers
Since inventing the budget vacation over 50 years ago, Cosmos has offered the most affordable travel packages to the
world’s most captivating places—from the City of Brotherly Love to the City of Light…from the Great White North to
northern Africa…from tropical Hawaii to sub-tropical Lugano, Switzerland. And in 2015, we are introducing vacations to
South America—from Rio de Janeiro to Peru’s Machu Picchu. We understand that you’d rather spend another day in your
dream destination than have a chocolate on your pillow…which is why our well-designed vacations come complete with
comfortable, clean, and attractive hotels; a professional Tour Director; guided city sightseeing of the must-see sights;
and dynamic transportation that makes getting around half the fun!
With Cosmos, you enjoy the benefits and convenience of escorted travel, ample free time to explore your destination
the way you want, and longer stays in key cities so that you can immerse yourself in the local culture. You can even
personalize your getaway with a great choice of activities and excursions. But don’t take our word for it! Go to
CosmosTours.com.au to see for yourself what real travelers are saying about Cosmos.
So, start packing today and let Cosmos turn your travel dreams into reality!

Deals & Discounts
SAVE 2.5% Book Early & Save1
Book your Cosmos vacation, pay in full, including all associated pre/post hotel nights and transfers, four months before the departure of your first
tour and get a 2.5% discount on your total land tour purchase.

SAVE 5% Discounts For Repeat Travelers2
Journeys Club members can save 5% on any 2015 Globus family of brands vacation. This is on top of other great member benefits,
including deal alerts throughout the year. To become a member, simply enroll via GlobusFamily.com.au detailing your previous Globus
family of brands vacation.

SAVE WHEN 3 TRAVEL Triple Room Reduction5
You can also save when three people travel together and share accommodations. Refer to the itinerary pages for the specific reduction per tour.
(NOTE: A triple room is usually the same size as a twin room, with beds to accommodate three. We cannot guarantee there will be three separate
beds. If there are only two beds, a rollaway bed may be requested but cannot be guaranteed.)

We help Solo Travelers save, too
Travel doesn’t have to be a couple or group activity! In fact, more than a third of our passengers are out there
seeing the world on their own, so we’ve designed a great way for solo travelers to avoid paying the single room
supplement and save money. We accept “guaranteed share” reservations that match up solo travelers of the same
gender in twin-bedded rooms. And if no other traveler books “guaranteed share” on your chosen vacation, we’ll
set you up in a single room at no extra charge! If you are a solo traveler who prefers the privacy of your own room,
single accommodations can be reserved. “Guaranteed shares” are not available for any extra nights before or after
your vacation, or on overnight trains or cruises. Single room supplements are listed on the itinerary pages.
