PEACE OF MIND
What you may not currently know is that any good independent travel professional can dissect any holiday package and reassemble it to suit the holidaymaker.
All are packaged under the security of an ATOL certificate. Your final agenda is a quality holiday that has been tailored around you. No two people ever have a similar personality so why follow the masses when considering regular holidays when we can design something unique, and around your needs? So the question you’ll need to be asking is… what’s stopping you from discovering that competitive edge!
If you’re thinking about either a holiday, cruise, flight, or even a get-away by rail, don’t be a stranger, we are looking forward to seeing you.
A door-to-door service? Whatever next… Ever heard of a travel agent offering a door-to-door ticket delivery service before? All customers of Ottery Travel that live within a 5-mile radius of our office can now have their travel documents personally delivered without charge directly to their door. The service is available to all our customers that may be unable for one reason or another, to re-visit our shop. This is an example of one of the ways in which we are able to bring a professional service direct to local customers. This also applies to travel paid for online.

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 it’s TV or 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.
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.

OR YOU COULD ASK…
1. A call center that is focused on a “SELL SELL SELL” mentality, only because of wanting to hit personal targets. It’s funny how they may often become unavailable as seen on recent TV reports, especially when things become messy.
2. Some internet travel sites created days ago by someone overseas may often display many unrealistic holidays without hidden costs whilst retaining confidential card payment details.
3. Auntie Doris will always be ready to recommend holidays that “SHE” has always liked.
