20 Europe Vacations Priced Under $1,000 for 2014

LITTLETON, Colo., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite countless New Year's resolutions promising to spend more time with family or to check-off destinations from a growing "Bucket List," this year, Americans are planning to give back millions of unused vacation days.  Now, Monograms is helping these want-to-be-travelers use their vacation days instead.  The all-in-one packaged vacation travel company and member of the award-winning Globus family of brands is helping make going to Europe not only possible – with 20 vacations priced under $1,000 – but also easy.

"This year, it's time to promise ourselves the dreaming will stop and the doing will begin," said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO for the Globus family of brands.  "Monograms is prepared to help.  We have experts on hand to put together all-in-one vacation packages to Europe – including a London Getaway priced from $558.  All travelers have to do is say 'yes' and go."

For 2014, Monograms has unveiled more than 60 European vacations, including new combination packages in the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe and Spain.  These new offerings bundle such exciting destinations as London, York & Edinburgh with Stonehenge & Bath; Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck & Munich and Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Cordoba & Torremolinos with Toledo

In addition to including must-see sites in each destination, Monograms vacation packages provide travelers such vacation details as hotels and transportation between destinations, while also giving them an on-site Local Host in each city to act as a personal concierge, arranging optional sightseeing and excursions and giving recommendations for what to see and do.

Plus, new for 2014, Monograms has put together an impressive list of 20 European vacations packages for under $1,000.  They include:

All of the above listed prices are per person, land-only, select departure dates.

According to Nisbet, "Thanks to our expertly planned and bundled vacations, Monograms travelers get to spend time enjoying Big Ben while others not traveling with us spend time looking at their watch.  With Monograms, travelers can sit and enjoy a second latte knowing your transportation to your next city is already taken care of while others are on their second bus.  In short, we help our travelers enjoy every minute of their much deserved vacation."

Monograms also gives travelers – and agents – the option to personalize and pack fun into their vacation, before they go.  Customizable options in Europe include such unique experiences as taking a trip to Normandy landing beaches, driving to the hilltop town of Tivoli to view the ruins and enjoying a guided ghost tour of Venice to walking through the Olympic Village in Barcelona, biking through Amsterdam and learning about the art of beer-making in Munich.  These options, and many more, are available to travelers for pre-purchase byway of MyMonograms

"Someday too often means never when we talk about our vacation dreams," said Nisbet.  "Monograms is helping Americans understand there's no better time than now to walk the cobblestone streets of Italy or have a pint to celebrate 2014 in a genuine pub in Ireland."
