We are also members of the Worldchoice Consortium. Our experience in the world of travel spans several decades, covers many thousands of miles travelled, hundreds of properties inspected and attractions and activities tried and tested. We are real people at the end of the phone (in Sussex) with a passion for travel. You are welcome to visit our offices to discuss your bespoke holiday arrangements with one of our team on a one-to-one basis.
Our mission statement is quite simply to help you to have the best possible holiday, not only to meet your expectations, but to exceed them. To find the best itinerary for you, to act at all times with honesty and integrity and to send you on a tailor made holiday that we are proud to have arranged.
We can and will
- Answer the phone promptly and efficiently – usually within a couple of rings. If for any reason we are not able to answer the phone, a short answerphone message will cut in, inviting you to leave your name and number. We will call you back quickly
- Find the best flight price available and offer you alternatives
- Book airport lounges for each and every customer all over the world – if you’d like that little added extra luxury
Responsible Travelling/Eco Tourism
This is very much a topic that is high on some people’s agenda, and not just with those going on holiday. We are seeing more and more of our suppliers rightly and proudly making us aware of their contribution in limiting the damage to their environment. Indeed, they are very aware of the benefits that good tourism can bring to their communities, which in turn helps everyone appreciate the need to protect the land, flora and fauna in which they live.
We do not pretend that all our suppliers have gone green over night, but it is a fact that more are making the change to a greater or lesser degree. This applies to the individual B&B as well as the bigger tour operators.
Nor does taking the environment in to account necessarily mean that it will cost the traveller more. By buying local produce or employing local staff, costs have been cut allowing this to be passed on.
If you would like this to be taken into account when booking your holiday with us, just let us know and we will do our best to offer you a ”green” holiday.
