Local agents with proven track records
In over 30 years of travel industry experience, we’ve met a lot of agents. But each local insider we introduce you to has been met and interviewed by us and is at the top of their game. They are all long-established, fully-licensed travel businesses who can provide every travel service, from accommodation and transport, to local guides and activities. This includes a huge variety of unforgettable experiences, samples of which you can see on our destination pages.
What we look for in local insiders:
- Firm relationships with local suppliers: accommodation, transport, the best guides and activity organisers, plus insider access to unique experiences.
- Strong local negotiation giving you prices you’d struggle to better online.
- Specialists in one country and familiarity with its finer points.
- Excellent track records plus great references from happy customers and travel trade partners.
- Good spoken and written English.
- Contactable 24/7 when you’re travelling.
- Strict service levels agreed.
- Committed to their local community and economy, demonstrating integrity and high ethical standards while providing the best possible service for you.
