LONDON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- To coincide with Tucan Travel's Christmas Presents discount, Tucan Travel has announced an extra discount for young travellers and backpackers. Applicable to anyone under the age of 26, this discount shaves 5% off the cost of any tour, on any departure date. This fantastic offer is combinable with their Christmas Present of 15% off any tour and an additional 5% off with their other discounts if applicable. In addition to the Student/Under 26 discount, Tucan Travel's Budget Expedition tours – designed specifically for 18-35 year olds – demonstrate their commitment and strong focus on providing affordable options for the youth market. They have recently expanded their Budget Expedition range to include South East Asia and India and with an established, successful and award-winning selection of tours in South America, these Budget Expedition Tours are excellent for those on a gap year, career break or adventure of a lifetime. Tucan Travel's new tours to Asia differ to those in South America as instead of the accommodation being camping, hotels, hostels and guesthouses are provided in excellent locations. Similarly, while South America's Budget Expedition Tours use expedition vehicles to cross the difficult terrain of the continent, in Asia, local transport is used for the majority of the tours. Across all Budget Expedition Tours, a local payment does apply. This cost is not included in the Student/Under 26 discount and is payable at the start of the tour. In a statement made today, Matt Gannan, CEO of Tucan Travel said, "In these difficult times, students and young people are the ones that feel the pinch more than others. We don't want under 26s to miss out on the life-changing opportunities and experiences that there are out there, all over the world. As we launch our Christmas Presents discount, we want to give this age group a little extra to help them plan their dream trip." Tucan Travel's top tours for those under the age of 26 are below.
