Types of Holidays
“The world is your oyster” – or so they say. There is so much choice online that choosing where to go can become quite confusing. This is why you need to talk to a travel professional. We are here to help you decide where to go (especially with seasonal destinations), but for more information on passports, visas, vaccinations and the latest travel advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth (FCO) Essential Travel Advice click here. (It's worth remembering to review this advice regularly before you travel in case of changes to FCO's recommendations)
The Bideford Travel team will work with your particular requirements to find the right holiday for you. Just let us know what you want to spend and how you want to travel (plus who’s going, of course!) and we’ll come up with some great suggestions.
Everybody has a budget (even if they don't tell us!). Did you know, though, that some destinations are cheaper to visit at certain times of year than others? As an independent travel agent, Bideford Travel can often find your holiday by shopping around or suggest somewhere that you didn't know you wanted in the first place. We work with a lot of tour operators and can often offer you alternatives that the mainstream agents can't (or don't) offer. This is where Bideford Travel can help as we have a range of different types of holiday on offer and we will work with you to find the best one to suit your requirements.
We can look at all forms of travel, whether that be cruising, flying, self-drive, coach tour or rail. We will work with you to find the best way for you to travel. Even those customers who are unwilling or unable to fly, we can come up with solutions or destinations which may be suitable for them. If you do want to fly from your local airport, you may be limited by the routes offered, so it is always worth considering flying from a main airport instead. Don't forget that Birmingham is closer to the South West than Gatwick and Cardiff can connect with worldwide destinations using its flight to Doha.
So you want some sun? The weather can be a big factor in where we want to go. We can look for the best places to go to get that suntan or offer suggestions if you want to go longhaul during the school holidays but need to avoid the Hurricane Season. Our travel experts can really help as they will be able to advise you on the climate for your chosen destination and whether your holiday dates are the best time to go there. Looking for your honeymoon? Take a tip from us and think about where you want to honeymoon before setting the date. For more advice talk to your local independent travel experts.
We also sell travel insurance cover, car hire, airport hotels and parking and a huge variety of attraction tickets to enhance your holiday.
If you or any member of your party have any mobility problems or specific requirements, it is very important that we make the necessary arrangements to ensure that your holiday goes smoothly. Contact our office on 01237 488623 before confirming your reservation to ensure that your holiday destination or hotel is suitable for you.
