Thinner Crowds. Thicker Wallets.

Think summer is the best time to go travel and explore? Think again! The off season presents milder temperatures, fewer crowds, and better deals. Escapes travel is a compilation of the best itineraries across the globe - presented during the low season - so you can experience the world's most popular destinations for less. In addition to great prices for all travelers, singles can benefit too. For most Escapes by Globus travel, there’s a number of single rooms where the single supplement is waived (capacity is limited and you must call for availability).

Tours for less than $100 per day!

With Escapes travel, you can wave, “Good morning,” to England’s stoic palace guards. You can wave, “Good day,” to Switzerland’s friendly dairy farmers. And you can wave, “Goodnight,” to Spain’s lively flamenco dancers—all for less. Because we’re waiving the single-room supplement on these special vacations to Europe (restrictions apply). With the combination of low-season prices and a single supplement waiver, there’s simply no reason to delay the trip of a lifetime.

When you arrive in the Old World, you’ll also say, “Hello,” to a circle of new friends. After all, no one truly travels solo on any Globus travel journey, but in the company of like-minded curiosity seekers in search of the world’s greatest sights, sounds, and stories.

And what if you could go right into Westminster Abbey or see Michelangelo’s David without bumping into the tourists on your left and on your right? With Escapes by Globus, you can experience the best of Europe without the crowds—and even better—without the high-season prices. When considering your next journey overseas, here are the top reasons to consider an off-season Escapes travel experience.

Mosey up to Mona

Fewer travelers in the off season mean fewer crowds, so you’ll enjoy more space in museums, among the ruins, and down the cobblestone streets.

Linger a Little Longer

Shorter lines to see the main attractions result in more time for longer lunches, longer strolls, and longer drawn-out sips of frothy cappuccinos.

The Heat is Off

The high season equals high temperatures. When you travel during the fall, winter, or spring months, you can experience Europe’s hottest sights and warmest traditions without enduring the sweltering heat.

More Bang for Your Euro

Everything looks a little different in Europe during the off season—the landscapes, the streetscapes, and especially the prices. From transportation and dining to shopping and sightseeing, you’ll see plenty of discounts and deals.

Meet Beppe, Not Bob

While you’re traveling this time of year, the locals typically aren’t. Which means more time getting to know them and their unique customs.

Lower prices. Shorter lines. Smaller crowds. These are some of the perks of off-season travel. Fewer inclusions? Not with Globus travel! On an Escapes by Globus tour, you get an easy, hassle-free, all-in-one vacation that includes all of these elements to make your vacation complete:

Sightseeing & VIP Access 

An Escapes by Globus tour always includes the major attractions, plus you get special VIP access to the must-see sights. We take you inside Europe’s most awe-inspiring places—right to the head of the line and through the front door.

Tour Directors & Local Guides

With Globus, you travel in the company of genuine local experts—Tour Directors and Local Guides who are actually from the region through which you’re traveling. All along the way, they share their vast knowledge of the areas and can point you in the right direction to help you get the most out of your free time.

Meals

Traditional meals help you experience your destination’s culture through its cuisine. Globus tours always include several meals, each featuring at least one complimentary glass of regional wine, beer, soft drinks, and coffee or tea for an additional layer of local flavor.

Superior Hotels

Selected for their comfort, beauty, and proximity to key sights, these hotels feature twin-bedded rooms with a private bath or shower (plus all hotel and city taxes, service charges, and tips for baggage handling are included)!

Local Favorites

Globus takes you behind the scenes to spotlight what makes each destination unique, introducing you to the local haunts, traditions, and flavors.
