About Us

Peakes Travel Elite Store

If you're thinking about your next holiday there is no better starting point for unbiased knowledge, help and advice than your truly independent travel agent – Peakes Travel Elite is that agent.

Established in 1988 by Frances and Russell Peake, and initially set up from home, so strong was Frances passion for travel, that before long she had hung up her farmers wellies for good and opened a travel agency in Shrewsbury.

In 2001 Peakes Travel Elite acquired long haul and luxury travel agency, Ron Morgan Travel. Their expertise in arranging bespoke holidays to far flung areas of the world – in particular their knowledge of Australia, New Zealand and Canada – complemented the existing business. This acquisition introduced Frances and Russell to Claire Moore, then Manager of Ron Morgan Travel, who now shares ownership and the running of the company as Russell and Frances enjoy more free time.

Barrie & Julia Browne

Thank you once again to both Sue and all at Peake’s Travel Elite for all the arrangements made on our behalf on our most recent cruise with Silversea between Barcelona and Lisbon. The attention to detail in all the arrangements was perfect and left nothing to chance. The transfer from Barcelona Airport to Silver Cloud

We are home safely although we really didn’t want to leave Dubai! The whole trip was wonderful and we loved it all. Your attention to detail and ability to tailor the trip to manage our not insignificant requests – trip of a lifetime, my husbands first long haul trip (having just recovered from surgery), sunshine

We have had a wonderful time Sally and the service we received from Peakes Travel from the time of enquiry to the day of return was excellent. The advice was imperative as to what location and accommodation as we have read and heard about cheaper trips being a huge disappointment. We would not hesitate in recommending
