    • Traveling is a wonderful way to expand your horizons, experience new cultures and cuisines, and take a break from the stresses of everyday life. Many travelers like the group motorcoach vacation option. Others prefer to set out completely on their own. But what about the people who want a little of both – independence yet the security of knowing there’s someone there to guide and assist you if needed? Brendan has the answer. INDEPENDENTVACATIONS For those seeking a vacation that has all the essentials for travel taken care of before leaving the U.S. but who do not want to travel on a group tour, an IndependentVacation is just what you’re looking for.You travel with pre-confirmed accommodations, transportation between destinations, sightseeing and the assistance of a Brendan local host in each city, available to advise and help you in any way needed, 24/7. A perfect solution for travelers seeking just a little help from the experts while still setting off at their own pace. YOUR CHOICE Your Vacation Style 4 Your vacation includes a variety of overnight stays, a choice of three hotel standards (Moderate, First Class and Premier – see page 9), private airport transfers, rail or ferry tickets and sightseeing options in some of Europe’s greatest cities.You decide how many nights you want to spend in the cities included in your chosen program and what standard of hotel suits your budget, then leave the rest to us. Brendan will make your hotel reservations, book your airport transfers and transportation between cities, and arrange a sightseeing or orientation tour for each of the main cities on your itinerary; all you have to do is relax and enjoy the sights and sounds, flavors and scents of each stop you make along the way. And in each city in which you stay, you have the assistance of a Brendan local host.They will visit you at your hotel the day you arrive, and are available by phone any time during your stay to offer advice and answer questions.You might want to arrange for more sightseeing. Maybe you’d like a recommendation for a cozy restaurant or a lively pub. schÖnbrunn palace,vienna
    • 5 Shopping tips may be your desire.Whatever your need – your Brendan local host is there to help, 24/7!Your friendly hosts are a wonderful asset to your vacation experience. Most of our itineraries include train transportation between cities. On the Premier hotel level, first class rail tickets are included. For First Class and Moderate levels, standard class rail tickets are the norm. If you prefer a first class ticket, upgrades are available at a low cost. For Greek islands itineraries, you’ll travel by ferry between Athens and the islands. If you wish, you can upgrade to flights. Prices for upgrades are shown on itinerary pages. Private airport arrival and departure transfers are included for every IndependentVacation.This is a great savings in both time and money – there’s no waiting for a scheduled motorcoach transfer. For hotel and train or ferry transfers during your vacation, the hotels we’ve selected for you to choose from are all within easy reach of train stations and ferry ports – either walking or by a short taxi ride. If you prefer a private transfer, Brendan can arrange them at a low cost. Just ask your Brendan Specialist for details when you make your reservation. IndependentVacations are a fun and leisurely way to “Travel Alone, But Never OnYour Own...” ST.BASIL’S CATHEDRAL in MOSCOw dubrovnik
    • PRIVATE CHAUFFEURVACATIONS Brendan’s Private ChauffeurVacations in Ireland and the UK have been so popular, we’re branching out to cover more of Europe!These exclusive trips offer the ultimate in vacation comfort – you choose the number of nights you want in each city, sightseeing, and hotel accommodations – whatever suits your interests and budget. Plus, you have a private chauffeur to read the maps and do the driving!

Our offerings in this catalog are for France, England, Italy and Greece, but we can accommodate you in any of the countries featured in our Private Chauffeur collection. Again, the short itineraries you will find on pages 128-129 are suggestions.With the help of one of our Brendan Specialists you can create an itinerary around your interests, time frame, budget and desires. With Private ChauffeurVacations, it’s all up to you.Where do you want to go? Brendan can arrange these exclusive vacations in Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Italy including Sicily, Greece, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany, Switzerland, Benelux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg), Prague and Austria.You might want to focus on one of these countries. Perhaps visit two or more. It’s your vacation, so dream big and let us make your dreams a reality!There are, of course, the main cities in each country. Often in these you don’t need a chauffeur, as reliable transportation is readily available. Sometimes having your private chauffeur as your guide makes your visit easier and more interesting. But outside of the main cities, as you drive across the countryside, with your own private car and chauffeur you are free to really explore. See something that excites your imagination? Ask your private chauffeur to stop. Notice a town that looks interesting?Take a break there and find out more.Want to seize a photo opportunity, suddenly feel like grabbing a bite to eat or drive by a shop that you just don’t want to miss?Your time and schedule are yours, so have your private chauffeur park, and you’re off on a shopping spree!
