Touring with Cosmos

Touring with us

Planning a holiday is no small feat. There's all the research – scrolling through reviews and checking the map, making hotel reservations, sorting out all the logistics – not to mention currency conversions and language barriers.

On an escorted tour with Cosmos, we take care of all this for you, leaving you the fun parts of the research, shopping and experiencing! If you’re new to the world of escorted touring, this quick tutorial will break it down for you.

Our tour prices

We’re committed to bringing you as much choice as possible when you book your holiday with us. That’s why all our tours show two prices: one with flights, transfers and private home pick-up included; and one without. This gives you the flexibility to make your own travel arrangements if you wish.

Alternatively, you may prefer to let us arrange your full package, so all you have to think about is what to pack.

What’s included

Whether you choose a Cosmos or Globus tour, you can always look forward to the same quality of service, private home pick-up and price match guarantee. With flights, hotels and transfers all included, you can rest assured we’ve taken care of the details, and saved you money compared to booking everything on your own – so you can indulge your wanderlust more often. You’ll travel in the company of genuine, local experts – our Tour Directors and Local Guides – and with like-minded people who can’t wait to uncover more when they holiday.

Of course, you can choose to book without flights, transfers and a private home pick-up service. Simply call us on  0330 0588 237 for a quote or to book.

Your holiday begins at home

We include a private home pick-up service with every flight-inclusive tour. When it’s time to go to the airport, our friendly driver will arrive at your front door, load your luggage for you and transport you to your airport terminal in comfort and ease.

Fly out, at your convenience

You’ll fly out from your choice of up to 27 UK regional airports at the time you have chosen.

Get a local perspective

To really get under the skin of somewhere, you really need a native to bring it to life. Meet our Local Guides! Their passion is infectious: they can give you the back story of the big sights, and show you the hidden jewels, such as where the locals go to eat. This is their patch – and they love nothing better than to show it off.

Relax and enjoy the view

When you’re travelling on board your comfortable air-conditioned coach, higher than the cars, you get a first-class view of the landscapes you pass through. Sit back and immerse yourself in the scenery, make use of the onboard WiFi to look something up, or practise your German with the person sitting next to you while your expert driver will skilfully navigate all those unfamiliar roads and your Tour Director will give you the low-down on every place you’re travelling to.

Skip the queues

Let’s face it, standing in line is a waste of everybody’s time. That’s why on a coach tour with us, all your excursions are prearranged so you can walk straight past the queue. Whether it’s already included or an optional excursion, you’re saved the hassle researching opening times, ticket types, and the logistics of parking and transport. Just breeze on in.

We’ll be waiting for you

When you arrive back in the UK, our friendly driver will be waiting for you in the airport, ready to load your bags and take you home again with the comfort and ease that you began your holiday with. Because coming home is all part of the journey.
