Travelsphere has launched an initiative to offer customers the “freedom and flexibility” to organise their own travel to where their escorted tour begins.

Make Your Own Way, a service that will also be available with solo travel sister brand Just You, is offered on tours booked from Travelsphere’s Worldwide and European brochures.

The operator is offering local and connecting flights to go with the tours from £99.

Travelsphere’s Worldwide prices include private door-to-door airport transfers or airport parking. If a customer requires a visa for a country they are visiting on their itinerary, Travelsphere will cover the cost.

A Taj Mahal, Delhi & Amber Fort tour starts at £1,299 including flights, but is available for £515 if booked via Make Your Own Way.

The price of an Amalfi Coast itinerary has been reduced from £549 to £399 for Make Your Own Way bookings.

Bookings made before December 15 are eligible for discounts of up to £200, while European tours can be reserved with a deposit of £49.

Alastair Campbell, Travelsphere’s managing director, said: “Customers now have more freedom and flexibility to tailor their holiday to suit them. Whether they want to fly with us or meet us at the destination – the choice is theirs.

“Travelsphere has been organising incredible escorted tours for over 50 years and we continue to innovate. We know our customers and trade partners are looking for more.

“All our deals can be combined to get ultimate value for money, and we’ve made it easier than ever for customers to reach their dream destination, so they can simply relax and enjoy their holiday.”

The operator guarantees all prices and departures.
