Press Release: The Great Chimu Sale Launches Today

Up to 40% off the Arctic, Antarctica and Latin America.

Sydney. Monday 13th January, 2019.

Now is the time to book incredible adventures to some of the most pristine and coveted locations on the planet as Latin America and Polar Travel Specialists, Chimu Adventures, launch the Great Chimu Sale. Between now and the 29th February 2020, Chimu are offering travellers up to 40% off expeditions to the Arctic/Antarctica; tailor made and group tours in South America; and Galapagos and Amazon cruises.

Following the success of Chimu’s 2020 Vision campaign in December which encouraged travellers to think not only about where they would travel but how they would travel in the coming year by showcasing their most environmentally and socially conscious experiences, the adventures included in the Great Chimu Sale continue in this vein by offering heavily discounted, once in a lifetime holidays which contribute positively to local communities; reduce, re-use and recycle; are making efforts to limit carbon emissions or are fundraising for a good cause.

Experiences in the sale include US$1000 off per person, plus a free night in Santiago/Punta Arenas and a US$100 spa voucher per person on Chimu’s Spirit of Chile trip. Travellers will stay at the prestigious Tierra properties in the Atacama Desert and Patagonia. These hotels have channelled innovative architecture to blend into their distinctive landscapes and the hotel group is part of an ambitious reforestation project to plant over a million trees in Chile.

Also featured in the Great Chimu Sale are Antarctic trips aboard Chimu’s new ship, the Ocean Endeavour which will set sail for the very first time in November 2020. For the sale period, Chimu will be offering up to 25% off 2021/2022 expeditions. The Ocean Endeavour is making a concerted effort to be a more sustainable Antarctic option: it is making an industry first by double carbon offsetting every departure and is implementing plastic reduction measures such as no straws, refillable bottles and the provision of toiletry dispensers.

Chimu also have an exclusive offer for agents during the Great Chimu Sale. For every client booked onto an Antarctica cruise aboard the Ocean Endeavour the agent will receive a $50 Coles Group & Myer Gift Card – one for every passenger. This offer applies to Antarctica 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons and the cruise must be booked by 28 February 2020.

Chimu Co-founder, Chad Carey, expands on what the Great Chimu Sale will focus on this year: “After the success of our 2020 Vision campaign which rounded off 2019, we wanted the Great Chimu Sale to really set the tone for our product range in 2020. This is the year to make environmentally and socially conscious decisions about holidays and we want to be part of a more caring and sustainable travel industry by offering experiences which have been vetted for their environmental and social credential while still providing great value for money.”

Chimu’s 2020 Vision campaign also pledged to Buy Another Bale for drought-affected farmers in Australia for every booking made in December. The Christmas and New Year period in Australia saw bushfires on a tragic scale, therefore, Chimu will be donating half of the buy another bale campaign proceeds to Red Cross Australia, Wires and the NSW Rural Fire Service equally.

Chimu have been working in Latin America and the polar regions since 2004 and all their Destination Specialists have lived in/travelled Latin America extensively. Most of them have visited the polar regions too so can discuss the different options available. The Great Chimu Sale will end on the 29th February 2020 and with the best of the discounts expected to sell out quickly, early booking is advised. A dedicated Marketing Pack for agents can be found here and Chimu Adventures can be contacted here.
