Untours include the following:

*14 nights in a fully furnished vacation rental (cottage, flat, or farmhouse)
*Transfer from the airport to Untours accommodation
*Ground transportation (car rental, train pass, or city transit tickets)
*On-site English-speaking support

Untours' Internet-only product, The RIGHT Vacation Rental, offers handpicked vacation rentals in a wide variety of European destinations including Italy (Amalfi Coast, Le Marche & Sardinia), the Greek Isles (Corfu, Crete & Santorini), France (Brittany, Corsica, Normandy & Dordogne), Croatia, and Spain (Barcelona & Madrid).

Named as one of the world's top ten travel bargains by Arthur Frommer, Untours donates nearly all of its profits to charitable causes across the globe through its own foundation, the Untours Foundation. Over the course of its 14-year existence, the foundation has distributed $4 million to various projects around the world in the form of low interest loans.
