India is where it all began for Pettitts Travel and, over 30 years later, we have arranged countless authentic and inspiring journeys for our clients to all corners of the globe. We also specialise in arranging opera holidays, Asian river cruises, self-drive holidays, short breaks and wildlife holidays.

Why Book with Pettitts Travel?

Using our knowledge and experience our team of travel specialists go to great lengths to ensure each itinerary we create is unique and tailored specifically to your requirements. We are very proud to have many loyal repeat clients with several who have travelled with us since we started in 1988. We are fully bonded by both ATOL and ABTA and are also members of AITO, an association that represents Britain’s leading independent tour operators and encourages high standards of quality and service as well as a commitment to sustainable tourism.


In 1988 Steven Pettitt and Nigel Berry, the founders of Pettitts Travel, pioneered the concept of tailor-made travel by car in India and we also have offices in Delhi and Kochi as well as our own drivers. To this day India and the wider subcontinent is still our most popular destination with clients returning to this fabulous region time and time again.


Uzbekistan, and the wider Central Asian region, is one of our favourite destinations and we have a personal experience of this historic nation. Uzbekistan is best known for its association with the fabled Silk Road and the UNESCO protected cities of Khiva, Bukhara and Samarkand which contain some of the finest, and best preserved, Islamic architecture in the world. Uzbekistan is also easily combined with neighbouring countries such as Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan and, for the more adventurous, can be incorporated into a journey covering the entire Silk Road from Beijing in China to Istanbul in Turkey.

Opera Holidays

Our European opera short breaks are extremely popular with our clients and combine some of the continent’s most beautiful cities with famous opera venues and renowned world-famous performers. From Vienna, Prague, Berlin and Paris to the acclaimed Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Teatro La Fenice in Venice and ancient Arena di Verona, we will be delighted to advise you on performances and schedules, recommend suitable seats and arrange any additional experiences. Although we feature nine opera destinations on our website, the options are almost endless and we can help with almost any opera enquiry.

Sri Lanka

The wonderfully welcoming tropical island of Sri Lanka is another favourite destination of ours and we have been sending clients to the country for 30 years. With a year-round climate, pristine beaches, ancient Buddhist temples, beautiful tea plantations and unrivalled wildlife reserves, Sri Lanka is easy to explore and incredibly varied.
