Stopovers

The humble stopover, frequently eclipsed by the grandeur of one's final destination, should not be overlooked or underestimated! Stopovers provide travellers with the unique opportunity to embrace and explore cities; priming them for the next long-haul flight and heady end-of-the-line adventures.

Whatever your wish, EWT can tailor a stopover package precisely to suit timeframes and tastes, based on our expert knowledge of each destination's best hotels, attractions and hidden gems. We can also arrange local transport, entertainment, visas, and currency - everything you'll need to get the most out of your stay.

Taste local cuisines, see the sights, and feel the hum of a city beneath your feet. Stroll through bustling streets, meandering lanes, parklands, beaches and waterways. Dine on local produce whipped up by traditional street vendors or Michelin star chefs. Be fascinated by ancient ruins, natural beauties, and modern day architecture. Recharge weary bones in premium accommodation and unique hotels designed to blend modern tastes and expectations with local traditions.

Here we feature EWT's Choice - our favourite property or excusion in each stopover city enroute to Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America, and Africa. In our experience, these products offer something really special. Select a city to find out more!

In-transit

When travel schedules don't allow time for a city stopover, or there are lengthy delays between connecting flights, 'spare' time in airport terminals can tire and dishearten even the most enthusiastic of travellers. In addition to airline-affiliated lounges, many airports provide on-site services and facilities to help make time fly. Such facilities supply transit passengers with a number of pleasant alternatives to clock-watching and include the chance to freshen up, exercise, shop, sleep, be entertained, and pampered. The following transit airports for Australian long-haul travellers offer:
