align="left"> Whether for busy moms,
students, working professionals, or others suffering from jam-
packed schedules, vacations are sacred time periods to explore new
destinations. However, all too often, these getaways fail to
deliver “R & R” as travelers face planning hassles, unexpected
costs, and unfamiliarity with hotels and attractions, even while
vacationing within the United States. Providing a welcomed relief
for those overwhelmed by travel challenges, Monograms – the
independent travel offering from the Globus family of brands –
has announced its expansion into the North America market. Offering
more than 20 different vacations to North America’s most popular
cities and tourist destinations, Monograms also affords travelers a
choice between two distinct travel styles, four to 12-day vacation
options and the opportunity to explore independently, all backed by
Globus’ more than 75 years of experience.
When vacationing with Monograms in North America, travelers spend
less time with planning and logistics and more time having fun.
Monograms takes care of all of the vacation details, from arranging
airfare and transportation in destination cities to coordinating
hotel accommodations (with a choice of either standard or
premium). For maximum flexibility, travelers can also add extra
nights before or after their vacations.
On the Road Driving Vacations: Even easier than the increasingly
popular in-car Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Monograms On the
Road Driving Vacations include all the fun of a road trip without
the hassles of travel details. Through these vacations, Monograms
maps out a specialized driving route with stops at a region’s top
tourist destinations as well as hidden jewels along the way. In
addition to this calculated route, Monograms coordinates the rental
car, all hotel accommodations and airline travel if needed.
