Former MP Barry Devolin is pleased to announce the launch of TravelMaven, his new tour and travel planning company. To get things rolling in 2019, Devolin says TravelMaven is offering a great one-time Kickstart Promotion.
“This Kickstart Promotion will give a $500 discount to the first three couples to sign up for each of our two tours this spring,” said Devolin. “Rather than spending this year marketing trips planned for next year, I want to get going now! To do this, I am offering a great deal to the first dozen people willing to head to Europe with me this spring.”
To introduce his new business, and explain the Kickstart Promotion, Devolin will host a TravelMaven Information Night at the Pie Eyed Monk Brewery in Lindsay on Jan. 22, and another at The Venue in Peterborough on Jan. 28, both beginning at 7 p.m.
Devolin says TravelMaven tours will be characterized by several features. First, they will be small groups (max 15 people). Second, they will involve lots of walking. Third, most tours will be one week, use one direct flight, and be based in one hotel.
Devolin has several tours set for this year: Paris – Springtime (April); Holland – Tulip Time (May); and Christmas Markets – Germany (December). During these public meetings, Devolin is also seeking input to determine where a fourth trip, slated for October, should go. Options include: London; London & Paris; Rome; and Seoul.
In addition to organizing small group tours, Devolin is also available for personalized travel planning on a fee-for-service basis. His specialty is more complex trips, such as several months in Europe or Southeast Asia, or year-long trips around the world.
“I believe that amazing and rewarding travel does not have to be crazy expensive. There are great options at every price point, especially if people are flexible with time and destinations,” said Devolin.
Devolin was the Member of Parliament for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock from 2004 to 2015. After living in South Korea for 2 years, in early 2018 he returned to his hometown of Haliburton with his wife Ursula and children George and Molly.
