But do you really want to choose your next holiday based on what someone else likes, or what is most popular?  There might even be places in the world that you’ve never heard of, but which would be an excellent holiday destination for you, based on what you want to get out of a holiday. Our holiday experts will help you find them.

In our holiday inspiration articles, we’ve outlined what’s good, bad and amazing about some of the holiday destinations we have been to recently.  So, if you’re thinking of taking a holiday somewhere that you’ve not heard much about, or if you’re unsure whether it would cater for the types of activities or relaxation you’re looking for, take a look at what we’ve said or better yet, ask us!  We’re always happy to help and to share our knowledge, so that our clients have the most enjoyable holiday for them, every single time.

Speak to us for holiday ideas and inspiration

Our experts don’t just say that a holiday destination is good because they enjoyed it there – we take what matters most in a holiday into account, before anything else.  If you love the heat, you’re probably not going to be interested in an Icelandic cruise.  Similarly, if you can’t stand temperatures above the average for the UK, then somewhere like Dubai might take you too far out of your comfort zone.

Then, there’s the type of place you would like to stay in.  Whether you’re going for a luxury honeymoon or a family safari, where you stay in terms of location and accommodation, is going to make a big difference to how comfortable you feel whilst on holiday.
