We have been successfully trading in Oxted, Surrey, since 1985 which makes us one of the most established agencies in the area.

We are all genuinely passionate about travel and we all have travelled extensively. We love to share our experiences with you, and have first-hand knowledge of many destinations and hotels. We are totally independent which means that we are free to use which ever supplier we think is best for you in order to offer you complete flexibility. Our breadth of knowledge means we can organise pretty much anything you would like from a weekend away to a round the world adventure, amazing wildlife experiences, romantic honeymoons or even your overseas wedding, ski-trips, family holidays & Spa retreats…

Situated in Station Road East in the centre of Oxted, we are open 6 days a week Monday – Friday 09.30 – 17.30 and 09.30 – 15.00 on Saturdays. We are closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Outside these times we have a 24 hour emergency line available to existing clients outside of these times which is manned by a senior member of our team.
