About Us

At Absolute Travel, we're passionate about travel and committed to finding the right holiday or travel product for you, your family or group. We are proud to be a privately owned travel company with more than 20 years' experience and as a specialist tour operator also, can create our own unique packages as well as selling other company's too. This is a huge advantage to you. Unlike many other travel agents and companies online, the holiday choices we offer are not limited to a handful or large operators. Indeed although we feature all the household names of course, we also represent many fantastic, high quality, specialist, independent operators who only work with a travel agency like us. Either way, we can help to create a relaxing holiday, a stress-free business trip, a city break or tour, making sure every detail is taken care of along the way.
