Singularly welcoming

Singularly welcoming

“Good holidays made even better by enjoying them with new friends” – so said a happy single traveller, who’d really enjoyed how Travel One made them feel welcome, with relaxed, get-to-know-you get togethers and sociable suppers, but also gave them space to do their own thing when they chose to. New for 2019 is Peru among their worldwide choices. And no single supplements!

Namibian Grand Tour

Namibian Grand Tour

Easy-Africa – that’s Namibia. Without the crowds or the hustle, it feels safe and is a spare but spectacular landscape, filled with extraordinary colour, from its russet sand dunes to the lime greens of its desert vegetation, to the subtle pinks of its salt pans. And to the delight of this traveller with Jules Verne, the national parks abound with elephant, leopard, zebra and giraffe.

Dreaming of a white Christmas?

Dreaming of a white Christmas?

What could be more Christmassy than a trip to snowy Lapland with Inghams? Think husky sleds, reindeer sleighs or snowmobile safaris. Try snow-shoeing or cross-country skiing. Inghams provide thermal boots and suits, and whilst it’s cold and crisp outside, inside is beautifully warm and snug in gorgeous log cabins, luxurious spa hotels or hi tech, Scandi-designed apartments. How about that for next year?

For the traveller, not the tourist
‘To offer the benefits of group travel but to treat every customer as an individual’, that’s the aim of Travel Editions. And their quirky, eclectic mix of themed short breaks in the UK and rail tours to Europe, plus special interest art, culinary, music and Christmas tours mark them out as refreshingly different, with a tour manager on every trip keeping things personal and service standards high.
Sightseeing on foot
There’s a special thrill to enjoying spectacular scenery on foot and Ramblers Walking Holidays explain how having a good tour manager to help you discover things you wouldn’t find on your own can make it even better. Now, what do you think you should never forget to take on holiday with you? Listen to find out here!
