It is the time of the year for travel discounts

It is that time of the year. Right across the travel industry, operators are keen to sell you a trip before they close for the Christmas-New Year holiday.

This week I got news of deals from Riviera Travel River Cruises and AirAsia.

Luxury European cruise line Riviera Travel River Cruises reaches its 40-year milestone in 2024 and is celebrating with discounts for its Australian guests on new sailings.

For all 2024 and 2025 sailings booked between now and December 31, guests will get $1,000 per person off on seven-night cruises and $1,500 off on 10-14-night sailings.

Guests who book in this period will also enjoy a complimentary superior drinks package for all sailings in 2024-2025, along with complimentary wifi and complimentary shore excursions.

Stuart Milan from Riviera Travel said: “We’re excited that we are offering our best-ever promotion to fans of River Cruises in the Australian market, we are confident that you will enjoy our award-winning service.”

Cruises on offer include the Rhine, the Danube, or the Douro.

Prices start from $1,199) per person for a seven-night Burgundy, Rhone and Provence river cruise.

Riviera Travel’s fleet of 12 luxury ships is also one of the youngest in Europe, with no ship older than six years. See
