SPOILT FOR CHOICE
If it’s about choice… our office probably has more holiday brochures in store than any other travel shop within the SW of England… Great when you know what you need, but it’s always better to get unbiased professional advice!
So, if there is any holiday you’ve seen on television or heard about on the radio, we probably have their brochure and maybe even beat a like for like quote in the store.
They say that you can not have too much of a good thing… In our experience, giving so much choice just confuses people, especially when searching for that perfect holiday.
When you see special offers on tour operator marketing whether its TV and via radio broadcast, they will always say that their holidays are “FROM” etc, thesis because most brochure prices display flights from London and Manchester. Flying out from a regional airport will certainly be an unexpected add-on.
The above is an example of why we prefer people to come and visit our shop, call or complete the online form found on this page. Did you know that similar to some accommodation providers saying that you could buy cheaper when you use their search engine likewise, many tour operators offer the same packages where the only thing different is the price it’s being sold at.
WHY SELECT US
This is an easy answer, and it’s because we can take a standard tour operator package, and tell you should another supplier be offering the same at a reduced cost. We can also tailor-make a package that is designed just for you. Besides, no one likes to wear a ready-made suit, why should a customer need to treat their holidays in the same manner.
