Titan (0800 988 5873, www.titantravel.co.uk) will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2018, and to mark this milestone event the company has unveiled its largest selection of holidays to Europe and UK Short Breaks for 2018. Featuring a total of 19 new itineraries including five brand new holidays to the 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play in 2020, further additions include new tours in Italy, Turkey and the UK, plus an expansion of the ‘Essential Collection’ range of great value holidays.
