Contiki Announces The Sale Of The World’s First Virtual Reality Trips

Desperately want to go on holiday but don’t have the time, or the funds? What if you could do Oktoberfest in an hour? Or scale Machu Picchu before lunch? People, the future is here. Contiki have just launched a groundbreaking new product, ‘Virtually Unlimited’.  This high-tech way of travel offers five guided three-dimensional virtual reality experiences with ten ‘Virtual Experience Centres’ (VECs) opening across Australia today, offering three-hour virtual trips for $149 per person. Virtual destinations include a bike ride through Vietnam, hang-gliding in the Swiss Alps, Oktoberfest in Germany, Machu Picchu in Peru and Iguazu Falls in Brazil.

“We have been experimenting with virtual reality for over 18 months now and are proud to be the first travel company in the world to introduce complete virtual reality travel itineraries for all senses. As people increasingly become time-poor and technology improves, Contiki is redefining travel and taking it to the next level. Our new ‘Virtually Unlimited’ product is the future of travel and a disruptor to the entire tourism industry, especially for airlines and accommodation providers,” said Katrina Barry, Managing Director of Contiki.

“One of the main benefits of our ‘Virtually Unlimited’ itineraries is that travellers get the high of travel without the investment. They don’t have to leave the country, don’t need to take weeks of leave and don’t have to save up for flights and accommodation, and we predict this is the way people will ‘travel’ in the future. All it takes is a three-hour visit to one of the ten Contiki ‘Virtual Experience Centres’ in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns, Perth, Darwin, Adelaide and Hobart,” added Barry.

To bring the experiences to life fully, Contiki offers three-dimensional VR itineraries activating all five senses. Additional to the VR glasses, young travellers will experience the physical aspects of their destination from climbing, to feeling and smelling their surroundings.
