The Luxury Holiday Company is a little bit different. A creative new tour operator at the cutting edge of luxury travel, The Luxury Holiday Company delivers unrivalled personal service and absolute attention to detail. We offer truly original, tailor-made holidays personalised around your interests. At the heart of our philosophy is a contemporary take on intelligent luxury. This is our commitment to offer you complete flexibility, independent and impartial advice, and the knowledge and creativity that allows you to travel authentically and in style.
Everyone’s travel dreams are different. But we know what it takes to design a holiday beyond expectations. We insist on partnering only with the very best private guides and hand-pick all of our accommodation. Whether it’s a classic luxury hotel, an exclusive villa for the family or a desert camp built just for two, we constantly review what we offer to ensure the highest standards.
We open doors. Our network of global contacts connects you to local people and leading lights. Travelling with The Luxury Holiday Company introduces you personally to Michelin-starred chefs and artisan winemakers, Maasai warriors and Maori elders, remote villagers, even royalty. What’s more, we can arrange for you to enjoy privileged, behind-the-scenes access to iconic sites. Think of the stories you’ll tell.
But we also know that it’s the little touches that count: an unexpected upgrade, a private table on the beach, a tip for a hot restaurant, a cool venue, how to experience those must-see sights without the crowds.
Travelling with The Luxury Holiday Company is seriously special.
This is your holiday and we are here for you. We know just how discerning and uncompromising you are. That’s why we dedicate so much time to getting every little detail right for you.
We understand just how busy you are, and that your time away is precious. We also understand that planning a holiday takes time and effort, and that it’s hard to make the most informed choices without expert help.
That’s where we come in. We provide the knowledge and expertise that gives you time and freedom to reconnect with loved ones, recharge your batteries, go on an adventure or learn something new. A simple call to us takes away the complexities and frustrations of planning a holiday yourself and connects you as a client of The Luxury Holiday Company, to a dedicated private travel planner who only has your interests at heart.
At The Luxury Holiday Company, we know it's those little extras that can make all the difference. Here's a taste of what we can offer:
Included in every one of our overseas holidays is a private chauffeur service (conditions apply – click here to find out more) from your home to the UK departure airport, and back home again afterwards.
Premium airport lounge access is included as standard, no matter what cabin class you fly. Wherever possible, we'll include private transfers. And of course, we are fully financially bonded and ATOL protected, so your holiday is secure.
At The Luxury Holiday Company, we're cutting our carbon emissions and doing more to protect our environment. To help us achieve this, we've agreed to undertake the following measures:
In order for you to be able to carbon offset our full range of luxury holidays, we've chosen three carbon offset schemes that cover travel by plane, train, car and cruise ship. All offer projects that are accredited by the recognised Gold Standard.
UK-based Climatecare offers offset calculators for flights and car journeys, as well as for personal energy use at home. It supports projects that protect rainforests in Sierra Leone, provide efficient cooking stoves in Kenya and develop renewable energy sources in China. For more information, visit climatecare.org.
Another UK-based organisation, Carbon Footprint Ltd offers calculators for travel by air, car, motorbike, bus and rail. Projects that you can choose to contribute towards include planting trees in the UK, reforestation in Kenya and the Americas and community-based projects that provide clean drinking water and efficient cooking stoves around the world. For more information, visit carbonfootprint.com.
The Swiss organisation myclimate offers an online calculator for cruise emissions, as well as for flights and car journeys. Principal projects include helping small farmers in Nicaragua with reforestation, providing more efficient cooking stoves in Kenya and a range of offset projects in Switzerland. For more information, visit myclimate.org.
