“John and Gary’s passion for travel is certainly infectious. We’ve travelled with them and been treated like royalty now for over 5 years. Celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and New Year from safari in South Africa to Christmas in Tongsai Bay. The minute we put our holiday in their magical hands, we can sit back and relax knowing that nothing is too much for them and everything right down to the last detail is catered for. In fact, they know us, our likes and dislikes, better than we know ourselves and we would not hesitate in recommending their speciality to anybody who enjoys a magical holiday.”

—Gail and David Welsh, Stirling

“I’ve used John and Gary for everything from one day business trips to romantic weekends in places like Rome right through to 5 star holidays to the Far East and Australia. Their experience, professionalism and reliability are first class and beats web based companies every time. If you’ve ever been stranded at a foreign airport you’ll know what I mean!

“I have used Gary and John, to arrange holidays, many times, over the last 10 years. You give them an idea what you are looking for and they come back with initial solution which they will nurture to your final requirements.

“Whether it is a family holiday abroad, within the UK or business flights, I have used them without fail and without any issues, all with the knowledge that they are only a phone call away to help with any crisis or change.

“I have used them to book holidays to:

  • Florida, including flights, accommodation, car hire and tickets to theme parks
  • Lanzarote/Tenerife including flights  and accommodation and private transfers and tickets for water parks
  • Euro Disney, including flights, accommodation, transfers and breakfast with Disney Characters
  • London, including rail travel tickets accommodation, restaurants bookings, theatre tickets, tickets for viewing platform of The Shard, climb over O2 arena, Madame Tusauds

“One family holiday coincided with the volcanic ash cloud and with Gary/John at hand they ensured we had suitable hotel for the family,  kept us up to date with regard likely date for flying home, before ensuring that we were booked on to a flight home as soon as was possible.

“Dealing with people, who have the knowledge, as opposed to internet websites is definitely still the hassle free and easy way to know you are in for a stress free, terrific holiday.

“I would recommend Gary and John at The Travelling Public to any friend, colleague or client, with the sound knowledge that they will be looked after and catered for in the correct manner with that special personal touch.”

—Stewart Shaw, Divisional Director, Oval Insurance Broking Limited

“It’s the personal service you get when booking through the Travelling Public that is second to none, and the high street travel agents cannot compare to the service the Travelling Public provide.   No matter how many changes, additional requests, children’s requirements nothing is too much trouble for Gary and John.   To know that your holiday arrangements are in such good hands is all that anyone really wants! Definitely give them a call!”

—Lisa Kwiecinska, Operations Director, RZ Group

“We have used the services of the travelling public for many years to organise our main holidays, particularly to South East Asia. They have great expertise especially in arranging personal travel and accommodation itineraries, with if requested alternative routes, costs etc. rather than standard package holidays and can provide a very flexible approach. We would recommend them strongly and continue to use their expertise ourselves.”

—Andy Harrower

“We have used the Travelling Public for our holidays since they opened in 2002. Holiday planning is painless, as they know what we like, and have sent the family to places we would never have considered. In the first year they took us to somewhere we had never been and it is now our favourite place in the world.

“We are delighted that they are arranging our eighth trip to include it this year! Hotel issues, flight changes and tsunami warnings have all played a part over the years, and John has always been able to help us whether on the end of the phone, on Facebook, or via email.

“Needless to say many of my friends and colleagues are now happy clients too.”
