Having worked for many years in IT I am very familiar with the pitfalls of travelling for your job. When I decided to move in to the travel sector, it seemed a natural progression to combine travel with the business traveller.
My franchise is with Travel-pa, a family owned and run organisation. Created in 1980, is one of the pioneers in luxury travel. Its tour operation side can be a great fit with the business traveller as it forges worldwide links with airlines, hotels and on the ground destination management companies.
Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance. I am driven to focus on the best prices available or the best added value offer for all aspects of the components that make up a business trip. I am able to assist with individual travel, group travel or corporate events.
Overseas group travel and corporate events are on the increase. To ensure everything goes to plan it is of paramount importance that the Travel Company has all the necessary connections.
I pride myself on being available when I am needed, to quote, to fulfil your reservations or to remove your stress by assisting you should you encounter any difficulties.
Of course, my business does not stop there. Covering all aspects of travel from the family package to an Amazon cruise, a weekend in London to an adventure holiday. The requirements of the traveller have seriously evolved over the past 20 years. With life expectancy on the rise we see many more multi-generational family holidays. The thirst for ‘something different’ is never satisfied. The world of luxury travel is probably an area that has seen the most change. The definition of ‘luxury’ meaning something totally different to the individual depending on age and income bracket.
As more and more people feel confident enough book, for example, their own Easyjet flights along with a hotel they have perhaps found through Trip Advisor, the Travel Agent’s role has changed. We all watch the news and hear about earthquakes, hurricanes, strikes, terrorism, airline bankruptcy, forest fires, erupting volcanoes, changes to visa systems and so on. As in any business there will always be challenges. As in any field the expert will have additional knowledge that is not on the radar of the general public.
I have access to prices and availability not accessible outside the trade; current up to the minute Foreign Office Worldwide notifications; I understand the bonding and where your money is and is not covered; I add the personalised human element to looking after your needs, many on-line companies are fine until you need to speak to a human; I have the contacts in resort to assist with any issues not to mention the huge amount of time I can save you by knowing how to access the pertinent information.
Travel is an exhilarating, ever changing fascinating profession. I am delighted to be able to bring my expertise to my clients’ assistance whether it be for a business trip for one person, a corporate event or a family holiday.

Top Holiday – very professionally organised. We usually do our own bookings but decided to go with Daniel at Reed-Travel because he had been recommended and we wanted something a bit different . Better than a usual travel agent – everything was just as we wanted, and a good price too. Nothing was too much trouble for Daniel – we would certainly use him again -especially if we wanted something bespoke

Although I had unfortunately already booked my holiday when I met Daniel he was still able to help me get a fantastic deal on my excursions and airport parking. He found us a better deal on waterpark tickets than we had found anywhere on the web and we also ended up with a free lunch too from an additional voucher Daniel found us! Wouldn’t hesitate to use Daniel for the full package next time as he has a brilliant knowledge of most destinations too. Friendly yet efficient service!
