Supplier Pricing Considerations Yield Credits Up To $580 Per Couple

Our partners have always appreciated Tauck's business, but in a challenging environment like today's, that appreciation only increases.

Tauck World Discovery is passing pricing considerations negotiated with its suppliers along to guests on its Europe land tours and selected Western Canada tours, saving Tauck travelers up to $580 per couple. The company's "Tauck Partners' Savings" apply to all 2009 departures of its Yellow Roads Of Europe land tours and to five tours in the Canadian Rockies.

"For 84 years, Tauck has leveraged our negotiating power with hoteliers and other partners to deliver incredible value to our guests," said Tauck CEO Dan Mahar. "Our partners have always appreciated Tauck's business, but in a challenging environment like today's, that appreciation only increases."

"Over the past 90 days our partners in Europe and Western Canada have extended considerations to Tauck that go well beyond what they normally offer," said Mahar, "and we're very excited to pass those savings along to our guests. These are unprecedented savings, and there's truly never been a better time to see Europe or the Canadian Rockies with Tauck."

Mahar emphasized that every Tauck itinerary included in the Partners' Savings program has either been enhanced or remains unchanged, and each continues to deliver the same superior experience and service that Tauck guests have come to expect from the 84-year-old company.

"Other than selected enhancements, the only significant change to these itineraries is that their already incredible value just got better," said Mahar.

Mahar added that Tauck guests already booked on any of the journeys in the Partners' Savings program will have a credit applied to their booking. "Extending these same savings to guests who have already committed to traveling with us is the right thing to do," said Mahar. "We would never penalize our guests for booking early with Tauck."

On Tauck's collection of Yellow Roads European land journeys, the same savings apply to every itinerary, although the savings vary by departure date: Tauck guests with departure dates prior to July 1, 2009, will save $260 per person, or $520 per couple. Those traveling on departure dates of July 1st or later will save $190 per person, or $380 per couple. The Partners' Savings come in addition to savings that Tauck guests are already enjoying because the company held its 2008 double-occupancy prices on each of its Yellow Roads European land tours.

A total of five Tauck tours in the Canadian Rockies are included in the company's Partners' Savings program. Unlike the Partners' Savings in Europe, the savings vary by itinerary, but are not related to departure date.

Tauck's collection of 26 Yellow Roads land journeys is named for the scenic byways of Europe, which are highlighted on Michelin roadmaps in yellow. The company's journeys travel these "yellow roads" to showcase must-see sites as well as authentic, off-the-beaten-path cultural attractions that bring each destination to life. Partners' Savings do not apply to Tauck Bridges family tours in Europe, or to Tauck's European river or small-ship cruises.

Tauck has led guided journeys of the Canadian Rockies for over 30 years, and was recently named the "#1 Tour Operator In Canada" for the fourth consecutive year by a leading travel industry trade journal.
