Escape overseas this winter
May 14, 2012
We’ve all dreamed of that one big trip – perhaps it is a month in Italy, backpacking through South America or getting up close to the wildlife in Africa. This winter, use White Pages® to escape the cold with a warm getaway of your dreams.
With White Pages®, tracking down the perfect trip at a great price is easy – whether you would like to do it yourself, or get some help from the professionals.
Head to White Pages® Online or pick up your current White Pages® Book to look up your local travel agent’s contact details and make an appointment to get some in-the-know advice on flights, deals and times to travel.
While many people now book holidays over the internet, travel agents have strong working relationships with suppliers that can offer big savings and upgrades for travellers as well as the latest in reservation technology to book your all-important flight.
If you don’t have a local travel agent, simply click on the White Pages® Travel and Accommodation Shortcut to find links to the listings of major travel businesses including travel agencies, hotels and airlines.
If DIY is more your style, contact your favoured airline directly using White Pages® Business Search to find its contact details. Some airlines feature their latest Facebook and Twitter updates on White Pages® Online, where you can find out about their latest deals and sales without leaving their White Pages® Business listing.
Statistics1 from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade show it handles more than 20,000 cases a year involving Australians in difficulty overseas, including hospitalisations, theft, assault and evacuations. That makes travel insurance an essential.
Either talk to your travel agent about insurance options, or find an insurer using White Pages®. If you have an existing insurance policy, give your insurer a call to see if they can offer a competitive rate due to your existing relationship with them. Simply enter your insurer’s details into White Pages® Business Search to find its contact details and make the call.
Alternatively, find links to leading insurers’ contact information using White Pages® Insurance Shortcut.
Once your flight is booked, your insurance locked down and your excitement levels amped up, why not save all your travel-related contacts in one place to access when planning your next trip? Create a White Pages® MyList of the listings for your travel agent, frequent flier airline and insurer.
While White Pages® can’t quite pack your bag for you, it can make booking your dream escape as easy as saying ‘yes’ to some time off.
