Crank up the volume on the social calendar next year and make some noise in another city at one of the world’s most popular festivals and events.
The team at Student Flights has outlined a list of the coolest festivals around the globe for 2013, so that jetsetters can kick-start their travel plans early, whether in Spain, France, Ireland, Amsterdam or Germany.
Student Flights national general manager Darren Lloyd said those who were keen to attend an international event should book flights sooner, rather than later, to get the best savings.
“Now is the season for booking flights to Europe or the UK, so if you are planning to attend a summer festival next year, get in quick to lock in a great priced airfare,” Darren said.
“By booking early, you will also have the chance to select from a bigger range of departure dates, with a range of airlines and tour operators in the city of your preference.
“Plus, it’s an excellent way to get excited about a trip for 2013.”
The list below included travel dates, destinations and deals for the world’s most popular festivals and events.
Student Flights is offering a bonus 15% off when booking two festival tours or 20% off when booking three festival tours.
