Collette

Collette – The World’s Oldest Guided Travel Company, Since 1918

Travel is Who We Are, and What We Do

Every day, we set about enhancing our travelers’ lives through travel. Since 1918, that passion and drive to show you the world has led a small New England bus touring company with a handful of tours to grow into a worldwide endeavor, with our headquarters in Rhode Island, and offices in Australia and Canada.

Collette has over 160 different tours taking travelers to all seven continents. We believe a guided tour is the best way to see the world – must-see sights, cultural experiences, accommodations, transportation – all this, and more, is built into a perfectly crafted itinerary.

We’ll handle the details. You enjoy your journey.

 

HISTORY AND SERVICES:

Since 1918, Collette has earned a global reputation as a travel company that offers extraordinary experiences, unsurpassed guest service and a wide appeal. Collette’s diverse travel collection features comprehensive land tours, river cruises, rail journeys, small group tours, city stays and more. Collette seamlessly takes care of the details, making travel simple while providing outstanding quality and value.

Collette’s Travel Protection Plan offers travelers a full refund for the price of the tour, right up to the day prior to departure. To protect our valued travel agency partners, Collette enforces a strict No Discounting Policy that precludes all travel agents, agencies and consortia from advertising a discounted savings off the published tour price. This measure proactively ensures a level playing field for all agent partners, including the traditional, local, brick and mortar agencies that travelers so depend

upon. With more than 160 tours spanning all seven continents, your clients only have to worry about where to go next. There are many ways to experience the world. Among Collette’s worldwide collection of tours, we offer a variety of guided travel choices. No matter where (or how) you want to go, Collette can take you there.

 

No matter how you want to see the world, Collette can take you there. Whether you want to travel across an entire country, dive into a local culture, or come to know one of the world’s great cities, Collette has the travel experience that’s right for you.
