Whether your clients are after an escorted tour, river cruise or self-drive holiday, there’s plenty happening on the European front.

Among the latest glossies, Tempo Holidays has released its 2012 Greece, Turkey, Croatia and Cruising brochure featuring new Flexi Passes through Greece and Turkey plus a range of discounts on cruises and Croatia tours. Among the new additions are the 11-day Greek Island Hopping Flexi Pass and the seven-day Drive Greece and Meteora self-drive itinerary.

And Travelmarvel has released its Europe River Cruising 2013 Preview brochure, with the operator now boasting access to the MS Johann Strauss, a 90-stateroom ship that’s smaller than those of parent company APT previously used by Travelmarvel. The brochure contains four cruises including the 15-day Classical Europe between Amsterdam and Budapest. Other highlights include earlybird deals for 2013 cruising at 2012 prices.

New to the Europe and UK space is Perth-based wholesaler New Horizons Holidays, which is launching it as a destination for the first time, diversifying its traditionally Asia-based product range. The program will focus on the main destinations of Europe, with a quality range of hotels and apartments plus popular day tours.

Meanwhile, clients can hone their photographic skills while taking in picturesque European destinations, with Insight Vacations' two new premium tours accompanied by professional photographers. The 12-day A Snapshot on Europe travels through Amsterdam, Rhineland, Innsbruck, Venice, Lucerne, Paris and London. There’s also a 10-day Rome to London In Focus trip.

On the vehicle rental front, DriveAway Holidays has various upgrade offers for those who book and pay for their Britain and Northern Ireland car rental by March 31.
