AUSTRALIANS planning a trip to Europe next year can pocket huge savings on cheap airfares, accommodation, cruises and more when the travel industry's experts gather under one roof to offer exclusive discounts, earlybird deals and valuable advice to the public.

Flight Centre Limited is hosting its annual Discover Europe Travel Show 2011 this year on October 31 in Sydney and Brisbane, on November 7 at the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Melbourne and Newcastle and on November 14 at the Sunshine Coast, Perth and Canberra.

The free travel show makes it easy for travellers to compare the range of earlybird Europe deals in one place, plus have the chance to discuss the latest tours, cruises and airfare options with a travel specialist.

Flight Centre Limited executive general marketing manager Colin Bowman said travellers could stretch their dollar further by booking on the day for next year's travel season.

“If you are planning to travel overseas in 2011, this is the time to book to pocket savings on everything from cheap international flights to travel insurance, river cruises, coach tours and rail passes,” said Mr Bowman.

“We know travellers are doing their research, so we have brought the major airlines, tour operators, wholesalers and cruise lines together under one roof to showcase the best deals, present new itineraries and host free presentations on popular and upcoming destinations."

Some of the airlines involved are Qantas Airways, Emirates, British Airways and VAustralia, while the tour specialists include Trafalgar, Globus, Peregrine, Topdeck, Intrepid Travel and Contiki Holidays.

Experienced travel consultants from Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Student Flights and Cruiseabout will also be available to assist customers with their travel plans and take bookings on the day.
