Travel the world
on a shoestring budget

Get up to 15% off selected tours

My boyfriend and I just returned from a trip booked by Encounters Travel. The trip was amazing. The flights were the best flights and shortest flights available. Our hotels had great food and gorgeous view. I emailed them alot and each time I heard back from someone with a day or two. I would book travel with them again.

Travelling the world doesnt have to hurt your pocket!


Our shoestring tours are perfect for those wanting to explore an exciting destination but on a lower budget.

Larger maximum group sizes, a generally lower base accommodation level, and options for hotel upgrades help to make these tours more cost effective.

Itineraries concentrate a little more on the main highlights of a country that everyone will want to see, but may miss some of the more out of the way places, experiences and activities that can only be done with lower numbers. ​

Some of our shoestring tours work on a “point to point” basis, allowing you to continue exploring a destination on your own after you have completed the tour with us.
