When you only have a week to spare, traveling on weekends, you can take advantage of our exciting Escapes and come back home with a whole new outlook. And with Cosmos, you never have to compromise.

They Make it Easy for Singles to Travel with Them
More than one-third of Cosmos travelers are traveling independently; therefore, Cosmos accepts reservations on a “guaranteed share” basis. They charge the basic price and match up singles of the same gender in twin-bedded rooms.
For mutual comfort, they adopt a no-smoking rule in shared rooms. If no other traveler has booked on “guaranteed share” basis, Cosmos absorbs the single room supplement, and that traveler will be accommodated in a single room at no extra charge.
You can also personalize your getaway, thanks to well-designed itineraries that feature the must-see sites as well as significant free time to explore your destination the way you want.
Best of all, Cosmos getaways start as low as $75 per day. That's less than a night out at home… and much less than you could book the same vacation on your own.
So start packing today and let Cosmos tours turn your travel dreams into reality.
