Bird About CIT

Dream, discover...experience Italy.

A long time ago in a boot-shaped country far away in Europe, CIT stood for 'Compagnia Italiana Turismo' or the 'Italian travel company'.
Today in Australia, CIT are the original Italy travel specialists, now with the best of Europe too. Still family owned and operated after 45 years, still known for quality and a passion for Italy. 

And so the story continues.... 

The CIT Travel Experience

5 reasons to book your travel to Italy with CIT

Today, anyone with a computer and Internet connection can research and book their own holiday to anywhere in the world. So why book with CIT Holidays when planning your next trip to Italy & Europe.

1. Time & Effort
The sheer volume of information available online makes planning and booking your own holiday overseas time consuming and frankly, a little overwhelming. Booking a holiday without the help of an agent or travel specialist can take a lot of time out of your days and weeks! And time is money and effort you could be spending on something else.

Make sure you compare your own research with what CIT can offer. You can save yourself lots of time and effort and rest easy knowing that CIT can take care of all the actual bookings and payments in one easy place – rather than 10 different websites with different payment processes, fees and terms and conditions and with limited contact details and recourse if something should go wrong. Your local Italian travel specialist can also organise the best value travel insurance to suit your individual travel arrangements as well as advise on any passport or visa requirements…all your travel arrangements all in one! It doesn’t get easier than that!

2. Savings before you go.
It’s not all about how much you save in dollars, it’s also about how much you save in time and effort (and peace of mind) knowing that everything has been taken care of before you even leave home! There are many ways to travel but visiting a country doesn’t always mean experiencing it. By choosing CIT and booking before you go, you get value for money and save on stress (negotiating accommodation and tour prices in a foreign language in peak travel times) as well as avoid queues and crowds and extra spending when you get there.
All CIT’s hotel, apartments and villas and services have been personally selected by our team of product experts, in Australia and in Italy and by using the most competitive exchange rate available, CIT will provide you with extra value and quality service which will leave you free to enjoy your holiday.

Don’t forget that CIT will price match any valid quote from online or another travel operator.

3. Experience and local knowledge
We know because we go. If you’re planning on visiting a country, it doesn’t hurt to ask for advice from someone who knows the country intimately: the best times to visit, the best food and wine, local traditions and must see places to go. There is much more to see than just the best known cities and locations…getting of the beaten track and ‘getting lost’ is all part of the fun of travelling. CIT can tell you the best ways to discover Italy in the time you have to available...and where to 'get lost’ along the way….

As Italy travel specialists, CIT’s team of experts regularly visit the countries we sell. Many have Italian or European heritage and first hand travel experience in Italy and across Europe.
CIT can design a trip just for you because we have 45 years of experience organising Australians travel to Italy. We can recommend and secure the best travel arrangements to suit you…we know because we go to Italy & Europe ourselves and it’s what we specialise in.

4. Support when you need it most
Whatever you need, whenever you need it, a travel specialist/agent can provide assistance and advice regarding transport, accommodations, tours, insurance and all kinds of extras.
If something should go wrong (heaven forbid!) or you need to make last minute changes, a travel agent won’t leave you on your own!

5. All the extras
CIT provides everything you need to get you there and to experience Italy to the full. Air, hotels,apartments, transfers & day tours , self guided and escorted tours.

Looking for a different type of travel experience? CIT has Italy cooking, food & wine, walking and art & culture travel options across Italy and neighbouring countries.

Travelling with a group of family or friends? CIT can assist with groups of travellers from families with children to groups of 10 or more, suggesting the best style accommodation and tailoring your itinerary to suit from self contained villas and apartments to self drive tours of any region you choose. CIT can also recommend and request special travel arrangements for a honeymoon or other romantic breaks with extras…

Everything in between your arrival and your departure can be completely personalised: from how to get there, where to stay, what to visit and how to get around…making your trip to Italy, a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.


 These are just some of the reasons to use CIT Italy Specialists for your next trip to Italy.
