Who are we?

Holidaysplease - An independent travel company founded in 2002

Our aim is to combine the expertise of the high street with the convenience of the internet, driven by the personal service of an experienced team of homeworking independent travel experts.

Our commitment to fantastic customer service is reflected by the wonderful Trust Pilot rankings and reviews received, and the awards bestowed upon us by the travel industry.

In recent times, Holidaysplease has been awarded Travel Weekly's Online Agency of the Year 2022/23, Travel Trade Gazette's Top Online Agency 2021/22 and Luxury Homeworking Business of the Year 2020/21.

Holidaysplease has also developed a suite of customer-focused, value-added services, that includes gift vouchers, a rewards programme and a gift list service.

Despite the challenges, we are delighted to say we received zero negative reviews on Trustpilot for the whole of 2020 or 2021.

On top of this, we received the award of "Online Travel Agency of the Year 2022/2023" at the Travel Weekly Agent Achievement Awards.
