Extensive buying power ensuring the best possible prices on everything from airfares to travel insurance to hotel accommodation to hire cars.
We’re able to issue any and all airline tickets, in most cases – instantly, utilising our vast pool of travel agency expertise.
We think there’s a lot of people out there looking for personal service and real (human) expertise but wanting to access it all online and at a time that’s convenient to them. We have a great (and growing) team of friendly expert travel consultants ready and very able to deliver just that!
We’re very much focussed on what we think travellers need today and will need tomorrow. With this in mind our business is very much about using the most useful tools and technology to deliver the best possible personal service to our clients – wherever they may be.
