With over 17 years of experience and a passion for travel, The Travel Advisor was established to create unique and personalised experiences for all discerning travellers.

Who We Are

The Travel Advisor Specialists have personally travelled to worldwide destinations and believe that every holiday should be tailor-made to suit all requirements, needs and budgets, whether on a family holiday, romantic getaway or a break from the day-to-day norms.

Through our consultation process, an allocated Travel Specialist will determine who you are, what you would like to experience and ensure personalised attention is delivered from the time of enquiry to when you return home.

Specialising in African safari and Indian Ocean holidays, our Travel Specialists have a wealth of knowledge in many other parts of the world, and most certainly can assist with any other destination information or bookings.

We will ensure you receive not only the best competitive rates through our worldwide network of partners, but advice on destinations, health, visa requirements, travel insurance and special events.
