Why Book with us?

Our staff are extremely knowledgeable in our specialised areas. We are leading agents for the tour operators featured on this site, and as such, we are in a much better position to advise than most “general” travel agencies. Most of our staff have experienced many of the destinations featured on this site and can therefore offer first hand advice about the destination, and help you to decide on the perfect holiday.

Because we are established agents for many tour operators, we can often offer more than most agents on most holidays. This may be in the form of discounts, free insurance offers or extra “value added” items not even available direct from the tour operator!

Customer Satisfaction

Because we are aware that it is easier to keep existing customers than find new ones, customer service is our number one priority.“ Although we aim to offer the best prices, we have always maintained that our loyal customer base has remained with us for many years because we offer efficient, knowledgeable and friendly service.

Independent Advice

Because we are not affiliated to any tour operator, you can be assured that our staff will offer truly independent advice. Rather than booking direct with any given tour operator, by using an independent agent such as ourselves, you can be assured of impartial advice and more choice. Add to this the fact that, rather than pay more, you are likely to either pay less, or receive more added value than by booking direct with the tour operator, then we feel we are offering the best route to your ideal holiday.
