Trafalgar issues ‘no surcharge’ guarantee on North America tours

As the sterling slumps to a record 31 year low, Trafalgar has issued a no surcharge guarantee across its 2016 and 2017 USA and Canada product.

The news means the brand’s product will be assured at the original brochure prices, which were set well in advance of the EU referendum.

At its lowest level since June 1985, and almost 15 per cent weaker than before the Brexit vote in June, the volatility of the pound has been causing much concern in the industry, with a number of companies adding surcharges the price of their holidays to offset the additional cost caused by currency fluctuations.

In a move to reassure its trade partners and the travelling public, Trafalgar has taken the commercial decision to guarantee its 2016 and ‘17 brochure pricing.

Trafalgar’s USA and Canada pricing was set well in advance of the EU referendum so, by guaranteeing that 2016 and ‘17 brochure prices will be unaffected, agents have a substantive advantage if they sell Trafalgar holidays for next year. 

“Our No Surcharge Guarantee, combined with the breadth and quality of inclusions that our product delivers, means that holidaymakers can be reassured that they will be getting the best possible value when they travel with Trafalgar, despite the uncertainties surrounding currency fluctuations,” said Ruth Hilton, sales and business development director, Trafalgar.

“We are always looking at the best ways to give our trade partners and their customers incomparable experiences at exceptional value, and have put hedging arrangements in place to ensure that continues to happen.”
