Popular Questions

What are your opening hours?

  • Monday - Thursday : 9am to 6pm

  • Friday : 9am to 5:30pm

  • Saturday - Sunday : 9:30am to 4:30pm

Can I talk to a specialist in person?

Yes! We welcome the opportunity to speak to our clients face to face. To book an appointment, click here.

What is a destination specialist?

Our specialists provide a unique holiday-planning service. Each specialist is focused on a specific destination so you get the benefit of their knowledge and experience.

Our specialists travel extensively to their destinations - they speak from personal experience. You will have contact with the same specialist throughout the planning process.

Their enthusiasm for the destination will mean they can tailor your trip to your exact preferences. They can ensure you make the most of your time and budget during your trip.

Do I have to travel on certain dates?

Because all of our trips are tailor-made, you can depart on any date you wish (depending on flights) and for as long as you wish.

The itineraries provided on our website are suggestions only and you can change any aspect to suit your tastes and budget. Your destination specialist will be able to provide advice and answer your questions.

Will I be travelling as part of a group?

No, our tailor-made trips are arranged on an individual basis. This means you are not tied to the wishes of a group and can arrange your itinerary at your own pace.

If you are interested in a Group Tour, we do offer a range of departures in small groups of up to 16 people.

Isn’t it easier and cheaper to arrange the holiday myself?

Many of our clients like the independence that tailor-made travel brings, without the 'regimentation' of organised group tours, but with the reassurance of our professional planning and back-up services. For example, if the flight that we've booked is delayed, it's down to us to re-arrange your travel in the country.

When things go wrong, an independent traveller may find themselves putting in a good deal of time re-organising their plans, when they should be enjoying the trip. We also regularly hear from travellers claiming that they can independently organise the same trip for a lower price. Almost invariably it is not 'like for like' and they may find they incur much more expense during their travels.

What financial protection do you offer?

We hold an Air Travel Organiser's Licence (ATOL number 4817) issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. When you buy an ATOL protected air inclusive holiday from us, in the unlikely event of our insolvency the CAA will ensure that you are not left stranded abroad and will arrange to refund any money you have paid to us for an advance booking.
