Our Services

Trading Places offers preferred contract rates in over 50,000 hotels across the globe. Our contracted property rates include all taxes and service charges, and in Europe, a complimentary breakfast is a standard inclusion. Live inventory and instant confirmations are available at most hotels. Our comprehensive hotel selection includes categories from tourist class to deluxe; historic to modern; small family-run hotels to larger business hotels, all offering unique styles and budgets to fit your requirements.

Private Car Transfers
Private transfers are available in all major cities. We provide professional, prompt and courteous drivers, offering select vehicles for all your private transportation requirements. Private transfer services can be arranged from hotels, airports, rail stations and cruise ports. Additional services, such as city to city transportation and extended private car touring, are also available.

Private Guided Sightseeing
Our expert private guides offer you a unique perspective of a destination, and the flexibility to explore sights that are of particular interest. Private touring offers the freedom to change an itinerary en-route and a personal interaction that is not often found on a public sightseeing tour. Our local guides are hand picked and have been selected for their superior local knowledge, and are available in most major cities.

Public Sightseeing Tours
We offer a broad selection of public sightseeing tours in major cities. Scheduled sightseeing tours provide a convenient and economic means to view the attractions, and the opportunity to join a group of likeminded travelers and benefit from an experienced tour leader. These tours depart from central locations and sometimes offer a complimentary hotel pickup.

Small Group / Semi Private Sightseeing Tours
We also offer an increasing variety of smaller group sightseeing experiences thoughout Europe. Tours typically range in size from six to twelve clients. The smaller group size ensures a more intimate interaction with your guide over larger 'Public Sightseeing offerings' and they also tend to be less expensive than a fully private experience.

Rail Services
Sit back, relax and gaze out at the wonders of the local scenery. Rail travel provides an ideal means to travel between your destinations. We offer a variety of rail arrangements, including point to point tickets, seat reservations, rail passes, international overnight sleeper trains and sightseeing journeys.

Car Rentals
Many scenic parts of the world are isolated from train or bus stations. Self-drive touring is a great way to explore a region in detail and at your own pace. It can also offer an unrivaled travel experience: stray from the hustle and bustle of the large cities, meander through the lesser traveled routes and tour the countryside, small towns and villages. We provide a wide selection of car and van types, manual and automatic, all at preferred contract rates.

Cruise Tour Arrangements
If you would like to extend your cruise with a pre or post tour, we offer a host of options. Whether it’s a simple private day tour with one of our select tour guides, picking you up and returning you to your ship, or an extended hotel stay itinerary, we are happy to discuss the various options available to complement and enhance your cruise experience.

Customized Groups
Whether it’s a family reunion, a religious group, or indeed any group with 10 passengers or more, Trading Places can plan your itinerary from start to finish. A collection of unique itineraries for the discerning traveler…
