You will get to travel and have your own room and stay in luxury at a fraction of the cost! This is apart of our travel-like-a-travel-agent rate! In this segment we want to focus on some castles which would allow everyone their own rooms and this would be ideal for large groups and destination weddings! We do not have prices because the company we get discounts from has gone through some changes and now we have to submit a request for all castle rates including the possible number of travelers. So it’s a new year…if you want to travel and experience luxury travel on a budget please consider letting Travel By Kimm get a quote for you!
