The 29th February is a very special occasion which like the world cup, only comes around once every four years. Why would that matter to a backpacker tour company you ask? Well, I’m told the special thing about the 29th or Feb is that due to a very old fashioned tradition (which not many people pay attention to now days) it is the only day where it is acceptable for a woman to propose to a man.

Well, we’re not sexist at TruTravels so we don’t really care who proposes to who and on what date it’s done, however, one thing we do know is that we have FAR more ladies booked on to our tours in 2016 then men – seriously like 70 or 80% of bookings for 2016 have been from the fairer sex.

In light of this uncanny revelation we have decided to offer a one time only #lads discount in order to even the playing field and get some more fellas on our trips. Now, we’ve all heard of girls discounts and ladies nights etc…

Well now it’s your time boys.

Imagine travelling round paradise with a bunch of like minded travelers, visiting the most amazing places, partying on beaches and generally having the time of your life. Now imagine doing this surrounded by attractive young ladies, can you think of anything better? No, neither can I. And not only are we telling you that you have the chance to do this and all you have to do is reserve a spot on one of our trips, but we are also going to give you a 10% discount as well! Offers really don’t get any better than that! In fact we should probably be charging the boys more for this privilege, but we’re not like that so we’re giving you a discount instead!

All you have to do to claim this unprecedented offer is book a place on one of our trips at any point during the month of March, use the #lads promo code and you’ll be getting 10% off your trip of a life time as well as helping us bring balance to the force (or at least to the female – male ratio on our tours in the next 10 months)...can’t really argue with that eh? Well don’t. Just do it. Usually when something sounds too good to be true it probably is, but this isn’t it’s actually true and we are actually doing it! Whatever you do, don’t miss out because you really will be missing out in a once in a lifetime offer.

The only way that this could possibly backfire is if your friends actually kill you in a jealous rage because they are so sick of seeing pictures pop up on their Facebook feeds of you in paradise destinations, drinking cocktails, chilling on boats, at waterfalls and generally doing amazing things surrounded by females… Well, that doesn’t sound like a bad gamble to me. If you’d like to find out more about any of our trips then email us on and if you wanna see for yourself what we do then just search TruTravels on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or one of the many other social media platforms the kids are all on now days….

See you on the beach x
