Your Holiday Questions Answered

Aside from travelling the globe to find new and exciting destinations, we have been out and about in the local area meeting lots of lovely people.
At the Shrewsbury Food Festival at the end of June, over 27,000 people passed our stand and we got to talk about holidays and travel non-stop! It was great to meet so many interesting people from Shropshire and beyond, and we hope we helped with lots of holiday queries.
We will be back in the Quarry on the 9th and 10th August for the Shrewsbury Flower Show, so make sure you stop by!
There were a few frequently asked questions we received at the food festival that popped up more than once, so we decided to bring them together here for you.
What are the benefits of booking through a travel agent?
We are a family-run, independent travel company with over 206 years of collective experience between us! This means we can offer you expert and impartial advice, and have the skills to create the perfect, tailor-made holiday for you, with all the extra touches which will ensure you have a memorable trip.
We have longstanding relationships with hotels, airlines and tour operators, which means we can secure the best value holidays.
We are also active members of AITO which means you are assured of the finest personal service, expert knowledge, and a holiday that is fully financially protected.
Let us do the hard work, so you can do the important bit – enjoying your holiday!
Where do you recommend going on holiday?
How long is a piece of string?! There are hundreds of destinations and endless combinations of hotels, flights and trips. We are all different and all want different things from a holiday.
We can get you nearly anywhere on the globe, so come and see us so we can sit down and figure out what your dream holiday looks like.
We start by talking about your holiday wish list and then we use our experience to bring those ideas to life.
Do you see your holiday as trekking through the African desert or on a luxury safari? Do you want to see the ancient temples in Asia or the Great Barrier Reef in Australia? Do you want island paradise in the Caribbean, a villa break in Europe or picture-perfect beaches by the Indian Ocean? Or perhaps you want to be transported to the Middle East or North, Central or South America. Let us plan your dream break!
When is the best time to book a holiday?
Booking well in advance will usually mean you have more choice. With plenty of notice you can secure a place on your perfect holiday.
If you want a particular room or have a special request, there is more chance of being able to guarantee it ahead of time. Also discounted child places will be limited, so you are better off getting in there early.
Generally booking in advance means you can take advantage of the best value flights. The cost of low cost or scheduled flights usually only ever increases with time.
Also, if you are working around some restrictions, e.g. around school terms dates or restricted holiday periods, it is best to plan in advance to get your valuable seat on that plane!
However, if you have plenty flexibility and don’t have your heart set on a specific place or set of dates, then there are last minute bargains out there, especially in the winter months and during term time.
We can tell you when airlines are having sales and point you in the direction of the best deals.
