Travel more for less: CIE Tours offers two-for-one air deal!

The party is over, the midnight cork has popped, and the day has dawned on a brand-new year filled with brand-new opportunities to travel the world. And what better country to travel to in 2019 than the Emerald Isle?  

This month, CIE Tours International is helping fast-acting travelers surprise their favorite explorer with a free companion flight on tours of seven days or longer to Ireland. Travel must be booked by Jan. 31 using promotion code 2FOR119, and the promotion is valid for departures April 1 – October 31, 2019.

Ireland is spectacular in summer, of course, but travel to the Emerald Isle is equally magnificent in spring and fall. Visitors avoid peak season rates while still enjoying longer days and generally mild temperatures.

Many tourist attractions are open, with the benefit of fewer crowds and shorter waits, and there’s no lack of cozy pubs to take the chill off on a misty day.
