Kind Words

from Clients

"We have booked a number of cruises through Simon over the past few years. He gives a very personal service, competitively priced, sorting out any problems in a professional manner. He does his best to ensure the holiday you finally secure with him will be one to remember for all the right reasons. And when you are ready for your next holiday/cruise, he will be there to assist through the whole process once more!"

- Mr Dawson

"My husband and I are both 50 this year, Simon helped us plan our trip. Simon asks all the right questions ,and what I initially thought I wanted from our holiday maybe wasn’t. I would highly recommend Simons service, I know we are really looking forward to our holiday .."

- Sarah

"Amazing..... If anyone is considering using Designer Travel I'd recommend them all day long. Nothing was any trouble. Between Simon and his wife Kristy they sorted out our wedding in the Dominican Republic. From start to finish they stayed in touch, if they didn't know the answer to our questions they made sure they found them out. I honestly will say I will only use Designer travel moving forward, Friendly, approachable and reliable everything you need when booking a holiday. Thankyou Simon & Kristy for making our day amazing..."

- Gary & Amy

"Very helpful and knowledgeable. Have had several holidays booked through him and had no problems. Would recommend using him for your next holiday."

- Mick M

"Designer Travel by Simon Collinge was the most helpful and efficient person, and nothing was any trouble. we recently lost our family holiday which was booked with Thomas Cook. I phoned Simon at Designer travel and gave him our list of requirements and with in two hours he had found us what we wanted and although the system kept crashing he managed to get us the last 3 rooms. We all had a fantastic holiday in Fuerteventura...  Thanks again Simon for saving our family holiday."

- Susan F

"Simon is very professional and knowledgeable and made booking our holiday with him so easy. He knew exactly what we were looking for and the booking process was so smooth and uncomplicated.
I wouldn’t use anyone else now!"

- Claire R

"At 9pm last night our holiday was cancelled by text when we were all packed ready to leave for the airport the following morning. The Jet2 helplines were closed until 8am the following day and no other available holidays were showing online. Luckily, for the first time ever, I’d booked our trip through an agent after seeing Simon being recommended. He worked until midnight last night trying to find us somewhere else to go. He understood what we wanted and kept going until he found something for us. He acted as though his own holiday had been cancelled not ours! Every single holiday I book from now will be with Simon, I highly recommend you do the same. Fantastic service and very tolerant of my pestering! "

Step One -
Getting to know you...

Building personal connections, listening to your preferences, identifying your budget and gathering the smallest of details is the key that enables us to craft tailor-made travel experiences just for you. Trips designed to reflect your unique personality and desires.

Our clients become friends as we work together to create those unforgettable adventures.

Travel doesn't have to be hard...


Step Two - Research

Now we've got to know you a little better we can utilise these insights, draw upon our extensive knowledge, first hand experiences and network of trusted suppliers to create a variety of enticing holiday suggestions and itineraries, searching for the best offers and making recommendations tailored just for you.


Step Three - Feedback

We've provided the suggestions, now it's your turn.

Every detail is important and achieving perfection doesn't always happen first time. Your feedback is incredibly valuable in helping us refine and tailor our suggestions and create your ideal trip.


Step Four -
Let's get it booked

We've found your perfect trip and it's all booked, but it doesn't end there...  We're here to help with all those little extras you may not have even thought of.

Car parking, airport fast passes, VIP lounges, sport and attraction tickets, tours and excursions... all those little things that make your trip even easier and better.

We will double check your passport validity, guide you with entry visas and requirements, arrange airport assistance or special requests, curating a seamless travel experience throughout.


Step Five -
Bon Voyage

We've pre booked your seats on the plane, flight meals are ordered, we've completed your online check in and your documents have been sent over...  You're all ready to go.

What's more, we've even contacted the hotels and suppliers to let them know you're on your way, request that perfect room and maybe even ask for a cheeky little upgrade or extra special treat to welcome your arrival.

You're now the Holiday VIP you deserve to be, safe in the knowledge we're still here for you, 24/7, if needed.


Step Six - Welcome Home

As your journey comes to an end, ours doesn't.

Your feedback is invaluable, it not only enhances our knowledge of the destinations and accommodation you've visited but also helps us tailor your future experiences.

We welcome you to share your holiday snapshots and cherished memories with us. Your adventures are truly valuable, and we would love to be able to showcase them on our social platforms for others to enjoy and appreciate.

Can you help with booking accommodation and flights separately?

Whilst we can book accommodation or flights separately, we don't normally do this. Most of the holidays we sell are classed as 'Package holidays', even if we source flights, hotels, tours and extras separately, we would still normally put these together as a 'Package' under ATOL 5534.
However, in some instances if you buy other travel arrangements such as accommodation only this protection may not apply and we will advise you accordingly.

Do you offer assistance with visa applications and requirements?

Although we are able to advise on Visa or entry requirements for the places you are booking and where you can get more information and assistance if required, as Visa application processes can require an amount of personal information, we do not normally offer assistance with these.

How do I contact you in case of emergencies during my trip?

At the time of booking you will receive several documents, on those will be all the emergency contact details for both myself, our out of hours emergency team and also any relevant operator emergency numbers and contact details.
