Who we are

No one turns dream trips into reality with more expertise and affordability than Cosmos. We've been sharing the world with savvy travellers for more than 50 years, so we know how to help you turn your bucket list into a "better-than-I-dreamed" list. 

We know why you travel. We know that another day in an amazing destination means more  than a fancy chocolate on a pillow! Cosmos travel experts still insist that you enjoy comfortable, clean and attractive hotels; a professional Tour Director; guided sightseeing of must-see sights; and seamless transportation that makes getting there half the fun!

From Alaska to Australia, and almost every place in between, our expertly planned, easy-to-afflrd and even easier-to-enjoy holidays turn "wish I could" into "glad I did."

Adventure is knocking.

Our story begins

A forward-thinking young Italian named Antonio Mantegazza started it all back in 1928, when he purchased a rowboat to transport visitors across Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Big things come from small beginnings and as Antonio grew his business our sister company Globus was born, and from that came Cosmos in 1961.


Single room offers

Whether you’re travelling solo or as part of a group but prefer your own room, we can waive the usual single room supplement on some of our most popular holidays.

If you’re happy to share a room with someone else, then take advantage of our ‘Single Share’ offer - take a twin room with a fellow traveller of the same gender, and if there’s no one to share with you’ll get a room to yourself at no added cost! Simply give us a call to find out more.
