WE’RE HAPPY TO SHARE OUR SCREEN IMAGES WITH YOU.
Ottery Travel are an independent travel agency that always aims to beat current trends whether it’s on pricing, product or service related. The price offered on our LIVE screens is quite often the best on the market at the time of enquiry. The problem with travel pricing is that the final rates are subject to currency, fuel and flexible contract rates from all operators.
We endeavour to offer all customers the very best in product knowledge and service. Whether it’s a full on, tailor made experience or a holiday through any leading brand from TUI, HAYS etc.
Many tour operators will add non-essentials that will make any holiday packages feel large but totally useless. (To us, it’s just wasteful add-ons that are never used). Hence why it pays in the long run to know someone that understand the whole travel industry. Visit our page
