EXPLORA TEMPTS TRAVELERS TO “BUY NOW, EXPLORE LATER” AND SUPPORT REMOTE COMMUNITIES IN SOUTH AMERIC
New voucher program for travel to all explora destinations and Travesías offers credit of USD $500 for every USD $1,000 spent, and no rush on booking travel through the end of October 2022
Santiago/Chile, June 15, 2020 – With the world reopening from the pandemic pause and people’s thoughts turning to travel again, explora has introduced Buy Now, Explore Later, a new voucher program designed to encourage travel to explora destinations throughout remote regions of South America and help local communities deal with ongoing economic challenges of COVID-19. Available for purchase through July 15th at a minimum of $1,000, Buy Now, Explore Later vouchers reward purchasers with a bonus of USD $500 for a total credit of USD $1,500 on future travel, with no requirement to set a date or even select a destination until they’re ready to travel.
With people in need in many of the remote regions in which explora travels, the Buy Now, Explore Later program brings funds to support livelihoods in local communities that have been hit hard by the fallout from COVID-19.
The Buy Now, Explore Later program is applicable for travel to all explora destinations and Travesías (explora’ nomadic journeys) throughout South America. That’s quite a selection for travelers to pick and choose, including classic settings in Patagonia, Chile, the Atacama Desert in Chile, and Rapa Nui (Easter Island) in the middle of the Pacific Ocean; newer destinations including Machu Picchu & The Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru and El Chaltén in Argentinian Patagonia; and Travesía Salta, Argentina, and Travesía Atacama-Uyuni, which is scheduled to begin operation in April 2021.
Support for local communities via Buy Now, Explore Later is valid for bookings to explora destinations and Travesías with a checkout date until October 31, 2022. Additional benefits for purchasers include the ability to change the booking date twice up to 7 days before check-in, with a new staying date with check-out until October 31, 2022; and the ability to use any balance remaining on a voucher for hotel services at explora destinations, including massages, premium wines, optional explorations, et cetera.

Established in 1993, explora proposes a way of traveling based on the deep exploration of remote destinations whereby every hotel has been designed as a headquarters from where to explore the surroundings, combined with guided explorations and a cozy infrastructure. All explora programs consider an end-to-end experience, including accommodations, transfers, meals, and beverages, and the option to choose and join daily guided explorations. Currently, explora is present in seven remote destinations in South America; Torres del Paine, Easter Island, and Atacama in Chile; the Sacred Valley in Perú; Salta and El Chaltén in Argentina; and Uyuni in Bolivia. In November 2019 explora was honored as the world’s leading expedition company from the World Travel Awards.
