Australian Pacific Tours is the first tour operator in Australia to offer Guaranteed Departures meaning that, at the time of booking, holidaymakers can be sure their tour will run.


APT regional manager UK and Europe, Gary Bartelings said:”Even if only one person is booked on the trip, it will operate.”


This service comes free of charge to the client with prices in the 2000/1 brochure remaining at 1999 levels for the first six months. Thereafter they will increase by 1%-5% passing on a small proportion of the new 10% Goods and Services Tax which comes into effect in Australia on July 1 2000. New products have been introduced for 2000 with the emphasis on independent touring and daily departures. “We’ve noticed that people want flexibility. Our tours allow people to pick where and when they go,” said Bartelings.
