Our Trip Styles
Ready to find new, experience more, to feel real? Of course you are! Our trip styles cater for everyone. And all you have to do is choose the style that best suits you.
Like a bit of privacy at PJ time? Choose Hotel. Or prefer a more intimate experience with a small group of like-minded people? Explorer is for you. And if the classic more-for-less life is your calling? It's time to embrace the social life on our Hostel Plus trips. Whatever style is for you, we've got the trip.
Trip styles for everyone Take your pick
Get a room. Rock up as a couple or twosome and snag yourselves a twin or double room to call your own. DW if you're going it alone either – we'll pair you up with another solo traveller of the same sex. And if you're intent on being a lone ranger? Two words: single supplement.
Get comfortable. Some people just like to have themselves a few creature comforts when they're on the road. Snuggle up in cosy twin beds (or double if you're in lurrrve). The cherry on top? You get an en-suite. And maybe even a hairdryer. Minds will be blown.
To say you'll be well-conected is an understatement. Get to where the action is with hotels that are either smack bang amongst it or right next to handy public transport links. That means: no rip-off taxi fares, no loooooong walks back to base and no getting lost (unless it's on purpose).
This is your chance to dive deeper, to explore more. Who do you want to share it with? A small group of like-minded people who just get it? Of course! With a max of 30 passengers (but averaging closer to 20), our Explorer trips are made for travellers chasing a more intimate experience.
Maybe you’ve done the Europe-thing and want to delve deeper into your fave destination. Or you’re obsessed with somewhere new and want to experience it wholly. Or you’ve seen our new Sri Lanka trip and went ‘sh*t, that looks good’. The point is, these trips give you more time to do what you want to do. More opportunities head off the tourist trail. More free time to immerse yourself in the culture. More getting lost in the moment. Just, more.
If Dora taught us anything, it was how to count in Spanish and that a successful explorer needs a good base to set off from. From conveniently-located hotels to share with your bestie, lover, new Topdeck roomie or enjoy solo; to a traditional Indian houseboat or a rustic swag under the stars – all our Explorer trips stay in some pretty sick accommodation.
Hostel Plus Trips
Embrace the social life. Yeah, you’ll have to call shotgun on the bottom bunk faster than your roomie and carry your body wash to the shower block but that’s part of the experience. And mixing with like-minded people at the hostel bar, versing room 202 in a friendly game of pool or making a ‘must-do’ list with your fellow Topdeckers over breakkie 110% makes up for it. Trust us.
More 4 less. You already forked out time and $$ getting all the way over here so you want to experience as much as you can, without the “holy sh*t” pricetag. Check off your bucket-list items, explore the unknown and still have enough cash left over for that skydive you’ve been eyeing off.
You’re here to delve deeper, explore further, experience more – so why stay out in the sticks? Our Hostel Plus accomm are all either centrally located or close to public transport links. Meaning? You spend more time doing the stuff you came to do and less time in Ubers.
Boat life. So much free time to lay on sun lounges, you’ll be glad you packed a book. Bluer-than-blue swim stops every. single. day. Spending sunset perched up on deck, your third Aperol Spritz in hand. Sailing into the next bay, treating your eye-balls to landscapes so good it actually hurts. Whether it’s Croatia or Turkey, these trips are what dreams are made of. And then some.
Boat facts. Ready to spend 8 days on a super yacht, with an OTT bathroom and a hot tub? You’ve picked up the wrong brochure. Fact: your cabins are twin/double with a basic ensuite – they’re designed for sleeping and washing off all the swimming, partying & adventuring you’ll be doing so do you need anything else? Air con? Oh yeah, our Croatia trips have that.
Boat value. Perks of living on a boat? All your breakfasts and lunches are included. And they’re good. Like three-courses-freshly-cooked-by-the-crew, good. And all those pesky logistics? Your Topdeck rep has got them covered.
Limited Edition Festivals & Events Trips
From music festivals with the world's hottest headliners to the biggest New Year's Eve parties in Europe. Ditching tomatoes at everyone in your line of sight to prosting your way into the early hours in the land of beer, bratwurst and pretzels. Or white-washed Mexican beaches to culture injected New Orleans. These once-in-a-lifetime experiences are like nothing else.
This one is kinda obvious. Whether you’re a skier or a snowboarder (and whatever your level of expertise), our Ski trips are an awesome way to meet like-minded travellers on a snow-filled trip of a lifetime.
Gap Year Trips
Gap years were made for exploring. Leave your comfort zone behind and get ready to set the real you free. Wanna do Europe with people your own age? We get it. Our Gap Year trips are for people aged 17-18 only – so whether you choose a long or short trip, you know you’ll be in awesome company. And we'll stay in some pretty awesome accomm that's also easy on the wallet – so you’ll have plenty of cash left to spend on the fun stuff. Optional activity, anyone?
