The Travel Corporation’s escorted tour brands have launched private trips for groups of 12 or more to travel in their own ‘bubbles’.

The autumn, winter and spring itineraries are available across Europe and the Americas with Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Costsaver.

The private group will have a dedicated travel director and driver, and exclusive use of a luxury coach.

Trips include Insight Vacations’ Amazing Spain and Portugal journey, from £1,995.

It features a lesson at a private dance school along with the chance to watch a flamenco performance.

Trafalgar’s nine-day Scandinavian Northern Lights costs from £2,581 and offers the chance to join a Sámi reindeer herder family for a traditional meal.

Insight Vacation’s Americas offering includes the seven-day Enchanting Canyonlands tour, from £2,145.

Groups of 12-15 have a 30% surcharge on the brochure price; 16-19 guests will have a 20% surcharge; 20-25 guests have 10% surcharge; and for 26 guests or more the price is as the brochure.

There is a discount of 5% on all autumn, winter and spring bookings when booked and paid in full before August 27.

Rachel Coffey, sales and business development director, said: “We know that people want to travel but some are still understandably apprehensive.

“We can provide total peace of mind for guests through a combination of our expertise and meticulous planning, our unmissable itineraries to some of the world’s most exciting destinations, our enhanced hygiene and physical distancing protocols, and now the opportunity to travel as part of a private group if they wish.”
