News - just for groups! bids to build on European success

European all-inclusives are a hit with groups

Destinations from Croatia to Madeira and Poland to Paris are some of the options in the new European range of holidays offered by the award-winning team at just for groups!.

And making a return for 2014 is the popular Tyrolean All-Inclusive holiday, which costs from just £499pp for eight days.

Harold Burke, sales director at just for groups!, said: “Our Tyrolean All-Inclusive was a resounding best-seller last year and bookings already for 2014 are looking buoyant.

“We sent a record number of groups to the Tyrol in summer 2013 and it is our best-selling destination so far for 2014.”

The Tyrolean holiday offers departures between April and October, and includes tours of Innsbruck, the Swarovski Museum, Lake Achensee, the Ziller Valley and Salzburg.

As well as full board accommodation, coach travel and Channel crossings, it features a free bar serving local wine, beer and soft drinks in resort.


Another all-inclusive option for 2014 is ‘The Magic of Madeira’, which has departures from November 2013 to October 2014, from just £699pp for eight days, including flights.

Excursions will include tours of the island and a trip to Funchal, to see its traditional market, an embroidery workshop and a chance to taste local wine at the Pereira d’Oliveira cellar.

Always popular with groups is Paris, so just for groups! anticipates high demand for its Paris Gardens and Chateaux holiday, which offers departures between May and October 2014 (five days from £369pp).

It features a tour of the French capital and trips to Monet’s Garden, Chateau de Bizy Vernon and Versailles. 


Growing rapidly in popularity is Croatia, which joined the European Union in summer 2013 and is experiencing a boom in British tourist numbers.

Next summer just for groups! features departures for ‘The Other Croatia – Exploring Istria & The Bay of Kvarner’ (from £699pp for eight days).

Excursions on this holiday take in the city of Pula and its famous Roman amphitheatre; the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Porec; the island of Krk; and Opatija, dubbed the Nice of the Adriatic.


Another former Communist bloc state, Poland, features in the 2014 itineraries, with an eight-day holiday to Krakow (from £499pp).

This holiday takes groups to see Auschwitz and the salt mines of Wieliczka, as well as a tour of Krakow – another UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Harold added: “We saw a bumper year of bookings in 2013, rounded off recently by winning the UK's prestigious ‘Best Tour Operator’ for groups award, voted by group organisers throughout the UK! 

“Bookings so far for 2014 suggest next year will be even busier!
