The TNT/STA Travel Show has been hailed a success after thousands attended the event Saturday 27 February, to pick up exclusive travel deals and bargains and to enter the widely anticipated lucky dip competition. Who wouldn’t want this once-in-a-lifetime travel experience for free?
More than 50 exhibitors entertained and inspired visitors with their passion for travel at the show, which took place at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
The long established event, billed as London's biggest free travel show, regularly attracts 10,000-plus Saturday visitors who, we always say, come along "to book, not look". The $1 billion-plus STA Travel Group employs nearly 2,000 people across 12 different countries, sends two million passengers globally on their trips, and enjoys an ancestry that, like TNTs, has strong links to young people from Australia and New Zealand undertaking adventure-filled trips to Europe and beyond.
We were really impressed with some of the great deals on offer and with the speed that our readers were snapping them up. Stoke Travel dished out half price passports for travellers that hate being tied down, Tucan Travel 50% off budget expeditions to Africa, Travel Talk 50% off Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Spain, Portugal and Russia and Medsailors were handing out some great early bird sale prices to your top three destinations; Greece, Turkey and Croatia.
