What we do

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.

How we can help

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.

Added extras, at no extra cost

At The Luxury Holiday Company, we know it's those little extras that can make all the difference. As well as impartial, expert advice from our well-travelled team of destinations specialists, we'll also include premium airport lounge access as standard, with all holidays departing the UK, no matter what cabin class you fly. Wherever possible, we'll also include private transfers at your chosen destination. Of course, you'll also enjoy ABTA or ATOL protection on your holiday, so you can book with complete confidence.

A responsible approach to travel

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:

  • Move our documentation to a digital format
  • Offset all company travel, including staff research trips to our featured destinations
  • Encourage our clients to offset their holidays through the schemes detailed below

Carbon offsetting your holiday

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. Former projects include protecting rainforests in Sierra Leone, providing efficient cooking stoves in Kenya and developing renewable energy sources in China.

Carbon Footprint Ltd

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 developing countries 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. Past projects include helping small farmers in Nicaragua with reforestation, providing more efficient cooking stoves in Kenya and a range of offset projects in Switzerland.
