Monograms is 100% independent travel and lets you get to know a destination like a local. Packages cater to both the first time traveller and experienced traveller. If you've travelled internationally before, Monograms packages make your holiday easier so you don't have to fuss around with planning. Included are hotels, the services of a Local Host, a city orientation with VIP entry to popular attractions as well as transportation (when you choose one of our city-combinations). And, if you're a first-timer, you can rely on guidance from our Local Hosts to get familiar with a city, and whom you can contact for information or advice at any point on your trip.
With Monograms, if you are planning to visit one city or several, seeking more knowledge of history or culinary delights, or wishing to relax at a scenic resort, we have holidays to suit. Our itineraries vary by region and highlight the unique characteristics of a destination. Plus we offer frequent departures – in many cases, daily departures – to fit in with your schedule.
Monograms knows that accommodation is key to a great holiday. That's why we offer you a choice of hotels pre-selected for their comfort, style, service and convenience. Whether you prefer hotels that are close to shopping or sightseeing, surrounded by natural beauty, part of the city's artistic heritage, or that offer contemporary styling, our holidays can put you at the heart of your destination —an assurance that first-time visitors to an area find invaluable.
On Monograms vacations, we provide you with the services of a Local Host, giving you peace of mind that someone is there for you during your holiday. Local Hosts provide area expertise and insider information, and are available to help answer questions, arrange excursions and city sightseeing, give directions, and suggest activities that interest you most for a truly personal experience. On arrival at your destination, your Monograms Local Host will provide you with a Destination Guide full of useful information to help you make the most of your vacation time.
A hot buffet breakfast is included at each hotel for your convenience. Lunches and dinners are not included on your Monograms holiday, as we know you want to choose when and where to eat at your location. Your Local Host will be happy to give you suggestions for dining as well as information about local specialties. When you touch down at your destination, Monograms will get you to your hotel; and at the end of your holiday, we'll make sure you get back to the airport for your flight home (additional costs apply). Plus if you're on a multi-city holiday with us, we'll arrange your transfers between cities.
