It has been a busy year for us here at Oxford Private Travel. The team have been road testing some of the world’s finest hotels, villas, private islands, and airlines all so we can share our expert knowledge and experiences with our clients.
Of course it is not just about how comfy the beds are - we like to find out the practical details like the easiest ways of actually getting there, and transfers once on the ground. What there is to see and do outside of your hotel or villa is equally important to us, as a holiday is so much more than where we lay our heads, it’s about the smells, the sights, the sounds and most importantly the fun to be had! We believe that nothing beats first hand experience and we know just how useful it is to have that crucial ‘insider knowledge’ that you would only know if you have actually been or had the experience personally.
Being able to confidently talk you through your options and make personal recommendations is something that we love to do and that is why we are continually improving our knowledge and travelling to both new and current destinations to ensure that we stay with our fingers on the pulse!
Over just the last 12 months alone we have visited the following destinations:
Lauren Marques – Sardinia, Santorini, Hong Kong, Mexico, Thailand, Seychelles, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Mauritius and Bali.
Laura Porter – Egypt, Turkey, Turks and Caicos, Antigua, British Virgin Islands, St Barths, Mykonos, Paros, Ibiza and Marbella.
Diana Cherry – Ibiza, Marbella, St Lucia, Maldives, Barbados, South of France, Italy, New York, LA, San Francisco, BVI, Mallorca, Marrakesh.
Mark Gibbins – New York, London, Miami, Orlando, Anguilla, St Barths, Dubai, Wyoming, Barbados, The Alps, Colorado, Vancouver.
James Ellwood – James is our newest team member but we sent him to Singapore even before his first day here in the office! James was living in Australia and New Zealand before he joined us so has extensive knowledge of both destinations.
Over the next few months both Laura and Di will be visiting Thailand and Laura will be island hopping in the BVI. During 2015 we will be continuing to travel and expand on this experience, so watch this space to find out; where we are, what we are up to and where in the world we are reporting from!
Sometimes it really is the little details that could mean the difference between making or breaking your dream holiday, so for honest, impartial and expert advice on your next holiday give us a call on +44 1993 899430 to speak to an expert, or make an enquiry.
