Voyages Jules Verne Launches Enhanced Service for Autumn 2011
LONDON, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –
Voyages Jules Verne has announced the introduction of scheduled flights
to its popular programme of escorted tours in Jordan.
Replacing the charter arrangement from Gatwick to Aqaba, clients will
now fly from Heathrow to Amman with British Midland International (bmi),
enjoying a number of additional benefits that include Saturday departures,
an extended season (which means a wider choice of departures over a longer
peiord), free connecting bmi flights from Manchester (supplement for other
regional airports) and an upgraded flight option where customers can fly in
even greater comfort in Business Class (additional cost).
Travelling on scheduled flights will also extend the duration of each
itinerary, enabling Voyages Jules Verne clients to spend an extra night in
Jordan, staying at an additional location. For example, VJV’s 15-night Grand
Tour of Jordan itinerary now includes a stay at the luxurious Evason Ma’in
Hot Springs & Six Senses Spa as well as an upgrade to its standard
accommodation in Tala Bay, which is now the five-star Radisson Blu Resort.
The eight-night Discover Jordan tour now features a night at the Dead Sea -
staying either at the four-star Holiday Inn Resort or the new five-star
Movenpick Resort & Spa (additional cost).
Whilst it would be understandable to expect all these extra benefits to
incur an additional cost, Voyages Jules Verne has managed to maintain prices
across its Jordan programme – reinforcing the company’s reputation for
offering the best possible value to its clients. And there’s even better
news on the budgeting front in the form of an Early Booking Offer as
customers can now reserve their place on a Jordan tour by 30 June 2011 and
enjoy a GBP50 pp reduction on advertised prices.
2012 promises to be a big year for Jordan, as it celebrates the 200th
anniversary of the re-discovery of Petra by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig
Burckhardt as well as the 50th anniversary of the filming of Lawrence of
Arabia. And, with the country currently experiencing a temporary drop in
tourism, there really is no better time to see Jordan ‘while the tourist
crowds are away’.
Voyages Jules Verne’s 2011/12 Jordan holidays
[http://www.vjv.com/destinations/middle-east/jordan-tours ] programme offers
a choice of four itinerates including Petra to the Pyramids, Jordan’s Red Sea
& Petra, Discover Jordon and Grand Tour of Jordon.
