Gives Travellers the Power to ‘Pick a Side’ of Europe Gives Travellers the Power to ‘Pick a Side’ of Europe
19th January 2018 James Brooke Gives Travellers the Power to ‘Pick a Side’ of Europe

New trip theme launched today.

Mystery travel company has today unveiled its new ‘Pick a Side’ booking feature, giving travellers the power to decide which quarter of Europe they want to explore.

Ideal for those who have travelled extensively in some parts of the continent compared to others, or those who are initially cautious about leaping fully into the unknown, travellers will now be able to slightly influence their surprise destination. Travellers can now pick from a cardinal point – North, South, East, or West Europe – and their dedicated srprs.consultant will determine the exact coordinates, revealing the destination just before they fly.

The new theme will serve as an alternative to the company’s traditional ‘City Break’ option which could see travellers jetting off to anywhere in Europe. To avoid confusion over which countries belong to a certain geographical region*, the new booking funnel incorporates a map of Europe, clearly showing the country split.

How it works

  1. Using the online platform, pick your side of Europe and choose from 4 UK departure points (London airports/Manchester)
  2. Specify how long you want to be away (3/4/5 days) and select your dates
  3. Check the price for your chosen dates against your budget and note up to one destination you don’t want to go to
  4. Select if you’d like to stay in a hotel or hostel, or add on any extras such as breakfast / check-in baggage
  5. Receive your dedicated page and srprs.consultant who personally selects your destination, flights and accommodation to deliver the most memorable experience
  6.  Seven days before departure, you’ll receive the weather forecast for your destination so that you can pack appropriately
  7. A couple of days before you go, a scratchcard will arrive in the post. This reveals a code, which is your key to discovering your destination
  8. Scratch off the card at the airport, input the code into your phone and surprise! You’re going to… has already sent 70,000 people on surprise adventures since it was founded by four Dutch entrepreneurs in Amsterdam in 2014. The company’s network of consultants ensure accommodation is always of a high standard, in a convenient location and selected through reputable feedback – see reviews here. ‘Pick a Side’ trips are priced from £100 per person.
