Antarctica Group Tour Discounts

As with most things in life, buying in bulk can bring big savings, and Antarctica cruises are no different, with operators often keen to give away group travel discounts to fill cabin inventory quickly, especially closer to departure.

If you are planning to travel to Antarctica with a large group of friends, society members, colleagues, your extended family, or indeed with other families, please contact our Antarctica specialists to see if any discounts may be available for your group, as these often vary by group size and departure, and are at the discretion of the operator on a case-by-case basis.

How Much Can I Save?

Typically the largest savings are found by booking ten or more months in advance of the upcoming season, with operators often offering early booking incentives of around $1,000 – $1,500 per person (approximately 25% – 35% off), with discounts reducing the closer you get to a departure.

Occasionally you may see considerably higher markdowns on rare occasions when private charters cancel their sailings last minute.

A Note On Antarctica Last Minute Deals From Ushuaia

Insouciant travelers have been known to hang around the port of Ushuaia, Argentina, in the hope of “hitchhiking” to the Antarctic Peninsula in any old unsold cabin for a bargain price. Whilst technically possible, we would advise against this as your choices will be seriously limited and you could end up waiting around indefinitely.

Should you wish to chance your luck finding a last minute Antarctica cruise from Ushuaia, early or late season (November or March) is your best bet.
