Top Destinations

Lanzarote

The most easterly of the Canary islands, Lanzarote lies just 100 miles off the coast of Africa in the Tropic of Cancer. With an average temperature of 22 degrees, this makes it an excellent holiday destination all year round.

In 1987 the World Tourism Organisation declared Lanzarote one of the six universal models of sustainable development. And in 1993 UNESCO declared the island a Reserve of the Biosphere. The island is justifiably proud of these awards and jealously protects its natural, cultural and artistic heritage, although an economy based on fishing and agriculture has long ago given way to the mainstay of tourism.

 

Majorca

The largest of the beautiful Balearic Islands, Majorca has never lost its appeal amongst British holidaymakers. Lying in the Mediterranean off the south east coast of mainland Spain and little more than a two hour flight from most UK airports, Majorca offers virtually guaranteed sunshine throughout the summer months and for much of the year.

As Majorca has been one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations for decades, the island is an experienced host to the less mobile and so accessibility and facilities are generally very good. The island’s beautiful beaches and holiday atmosphere continue to attract tourists from right across the world. All the resorts offer an excellent range of local bars, cafes, restaurants and shops and there is plenty of nightlife. The south coast of the island tends to be livelier, but is also popular with families and older people alike.

Spain

With beautiful sunshine, a magnificent coastline and a wonderfully relaxed way of life, Spain is just made for holidays.

One of the great empires from the past, Spain’s majestic Moorish castles, dramatic landscapes, picturesque villages and ancient vineyards provide a stunning backdrop to the beautiful beach resorts that have made Spain’s Mediterranean coast justifiably famous throughout the world.

Knowledgeable, impartial advice

From city breaks to ski trips, we tailor all our package holidays and ‘disabled friendly’ cruises to your needs. Once you’ve chosen your destination, we’ll help you select the most appropriate accommodation or accessible property. Our team doesn’t earn commission and isn’t incentivised to favour hotels, properties or destinations either. That means you can always trust us to provide knowledgeable, impartial advice.

Fully-inclusive prices

The land-based holiday prices on our website include accommodation with the appropriate meal plan, accessible airport transfers and (where relevant) a local representative. We’ve deliberately excluded airfares so you can choose your preferred departure date, airline, airport and holiday duration. Once we’ve secured your flights, we’ll give you a fully-inclusive price from home to destination and home again.

With your trip booked, our legendary service continues as we help with airline or cruise pre-notification, parking, holiday insurance and other aspects of administration and post-holiday follow-up.
