Italian Travel Connection is taking a break for 2019 and so won’t be hosting any tours. We know that this may be sad news for some of you who look forward to your visits to Italy, but this decision has been made due to several factors which are beyond our control.
One of the main reasons in this decision is the current value of the pound against the Euro due to the situation with the Brexit negotiations. To facilitate our tours, we need to buy our Euros far in advance, we try to do this at the best possible rate, however, at the current extremely low rates it would cost us a lot more to buy the same amount of Euros, and the figure is too substantial to be reclaimed by raising the cost of the tours for our clients. In 2018 ITC absorbed a lot of the extra cost of the foreign currency so that we could keep the cost of the tours as low as possible, but we do not see that as a possibility for 2019 as the cost is significantly more.
So, we have decided to take a break and are going to use 2019 as a research year. We will be looking for ways to offer cost effective but exciting and stimulating tours that will offer something new for our clients, and hopefully, once Brexit has completed the pound will regain its strength and we will be able to relaunch in 2020 with the promise of new places for everyone to experience and enjoy.
With regards to our office on Borough Road, this will close on 31st October 2018 and we will have no direct contact number until we re-establish later in the year. In the meantime, please use our ‘contact us’ section or email for any urgent enquiries.
This website will remain active along with our Facebook page, so we will announce any news and information via those methods once we have something to share with you. We are leaving our 2018 tour details on the page for your reference.
We would like to thank all of you for your continued business over the many years, and we hope to see you again in 2020, but in the meantime all that we can say is …
Relax & Enjoy From the moment you leave your home, throughout your holiday and until your return, we provide a friendly caring service; leaving you to relax into your holiday and enjoy it to the full. Established in 1990 and fully ATOL bonded, today we are as passionate about Italy as we were when the business was first established. We enjoy visiting all the well known destinations such as Rome, Venice and Florence as well as charming and picturesque destinations like Caorle on the Adriatic coast, Lake Bolsena in the Lazio region and beautiful, Alpine Lake Ledro with its spectacular forest and mountain scenery.
Great Hotels We’ve personally selected each of the hotels we stay at. Many are family run offering features, service and a charm which have made them firm favourites with our guests over the years.
Friendly, Knowledgeable Guides Throughout your holiday our tour representatives and guides will be available, ensuring that you arrive at your hotels safe and sound, providing you with some essential information, and will be staying in the same accommodation as you (except in multi option accommodation) to provide help and support when you need them.
Incredible Value As we sell all our holidays direct to you, negotiate the best possible air fares and hotel arrangements, we know you will find all our holidays offer great value for money coupled with a standard of service that our guests tell us is unmatched by other tour operators. And, with places limited, it is little wonder our holidays sell out fast and more than 80% of those travelling with us have chosen an Italian Travel Connection holiday following a personal recommendation.
