It’s the start of a new decade, and we couldn’t imagine a better time to start envisioning your travel goals and the destinations you want to check off your bucket list.

Swimming in the Adriatic Sea, exploring the bustling markets of New Delhi, embarking on an adventurous safari in South Africa — anything is possible these days. The only problem? When it comes to planning a trip yourself, things can get expensive very quickly.

Let’s face it, nobody wants to start planning the vacation of a lifetime if it’s going to cause them stress. That’s why people turn to travel experts, and not the kind who charge you hidden fees for activities you don’t want to do.

Indus Travels does it better. The Metro Vancouver–based tour operator offers custom vacations to over 50 countries, allowing you to see the world for less. So, let’s take a look at exactly how that works.

Are you feeling inspired to travel solo but still like the idea of experiencing a new city with others? This is where Indus’ Unbundled Tours come in. The tours include everything from international flights to airport transfers, all hotel accommodations (with breakfast), as well as sightseeing at each destination.

The tours are kept small, with an average of 22 people. Unlike other tour operators, when you travel with Indus, you can customize your own experiences during the vacation, based on your preferences.

Don’t feel like zip-lining? No problem — you can explore the local town while the rest of the group heads off to that tour. Indus only charges you for the experiences and excursions you pick, so you’re free to spend the time in between as you choose. Ultimately, this means you can save more money during your trip.

Having the kind of vacation you see influencers posting about on Instagram doesn’t have to be a dream any longer. That’s because there’s literally a tour for every kind of traveller available through Indus.

For instance, the 14-day Treasures of Vietnam and Cambodia tour takes you from Hanoi to Phnom Penh to see the best Indochina has to offer. Spend eight days in Marvellous Argentina where you’ll discover Buenos Aires and fall in love with the architecture, or opt for A Taste of Costa Rica during a five-day tour where you’ll stay in a plush five-star beachfront resort and immerse yourself in nature.

All anyone wants when they arrive in paradise is a smooth transition to vacation mode, and this is exactly what you get when you book an Unbundled Tour. Plus, you’re guaranteed an authentic experience because all Indus tours are backed by offices and teams in local destinations.

Forget wasting time trying to find (expensive) taxis at the airport — your Indus vacation manager will be there waiting to bring you to your hotel (and on safari). Everything is organized for you ahead of time so all you have to do is grab your bags and go. And if you have any pertinent questions like where to find the best tacos or watch a beautiful sunset, you can ask your experienced guide — they’ve lived everything about your destination!

Already, Indus has hosted more than 50,000 travellers, and you could be next. So, what are you waiting for? Head to Indus Travels now and book an unforgettable tour to the place you’ve always wanted to visit.
