What’s the deal? Do the bucket-list backpacker overlander from Moscow to Beijing with a 40 per cent discount.

Are you serious? As a heart attack. Or, rather, a whopping saving on a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Real Russia’s 40 per cent discount is exclusively available to those who book their tour at the TNT Travel Show. All you need is a £100 deposit, to be paid on the day. You’ll have to get your elbows out and barge in early, though – the discount is limited to a maximum of 12 places on each tour date, and to the first 50 bookings in total. There is, however, a silver lining for anyone who misses out on the first 50 bookings; you’ll still land yourself a better-than-a-smack-in-the-mush discount of 20 per cent if you book at the show. The deal applies to “fully loaded” (or all-inclusive) tours on selected dates between June and September 2012.
