A new type of touring holiday is being introduced by the parent company of Cosmos.

Choice Touring by Globus features 13 new itineraries in the UK, Europe and North America.

All excursions are included in the price, and customers can pick and chose which to go on to tailor-make their tour.

The YourChoice Excursions are experiences in key and off-the-beaten-path destinations – included in the package price – so travellers can tailor their tour to their own interests, according to the operator.

Destinations include Scotland, Ireland, Greece, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, Spain, the US and Canada.

The itineraries start later this year and run into 2022.

Sales and marketing director Janet Parton said: “With the introduction of Choice Touring by Globus, we’re giving travellers a whole new way to cure their curiosities.

“On these new, special itineraries, guests can choose from a menu of curated included excursions in key and off-the-beaten-path destinations, while still enjoying everything they love about a perfectly planned tour.”

She added: “We understand that one size does not always fit all. With this new touring style, and YourChoice Excursions, travellers can now spend their days, their way in dozens of destinations across Europe and North America.

“The average Choice Touring itinerary features three YourChoice destinations with approximately nine excursion options.”
