Contiki UK Review
contiki.com/uk is a site packed with exiting destinations and an abundance of deals right from the off. We will take a look at the ease of use and the ability to get the best savings possible and how easy it is to find them. Right from the start one of the top promotions smacks you in the eye offering up to £800 off at the time of writing. Clicking through takes you to the Summer deals page which breaks down the offers by country and the type of travel and destination.
A Homepage with Plenty of Options
A first glance at Contiki’s homepage can be a little overwhelming. Once you get past the initial sight of images and colours, you’ll find it easier to follow. However, you may need to click on the “What We Do” or “Who We Are” to figure out exactly what you’ll get!
It’s all about creating memorable holidays for 18 to 35-year-olds. The website is certainly geared for this age bracket!
Booking seems to be a sinch, all you do is click on the offer, choose from the available dates and click book trip – that’s it! One thing to bear in mind is that the cheapest price may be for a twin sharing room, an extra premium is payable for single rooms when travelling alone, and flights are extra. It’s a bonus if you are travelling in groups of 2 or more and the price comes down. There are more discounts for groups of 10 or more, increase the numbers and you pay less per person. Coupon codes can be added at the trip overview stage of the booking, just pop your code into ‘promo code’ box and click the ‘add’ button.
There’s an option to book your own flights or let Contiki do it for you, it’s your choice.
Of course, most Millennials will look for the best holiday for their money. They want memorable trips that are cost-effective. The good news is Contiki makes it extremely easy to find that. The menu bar at the side (making it look like a mobile view instead of desktop!) gives you a Deals section at the very bottom.
This has all the latest promotions and tips on how to save money. There’s a section with current promotions and ongoing deals to make sure you don’t miss out! If you sign up to the newsletter, you’ll get even more deals and promos that you can use at the checkout!
