Independent holidays

Tailor-made touring without the hassle

Tailor-made & independent holidays


While you’ll find road trips, rail journeys, luxury cruises and beach holidays across our holiday collections, we know that those types of trips aren’t for everyone. That’s why we offer a wide range of what we refer to as independent holidays.

These are our tailor-made trips where, while you won’t be escorted throughout, you will benefit from the likes of meet-and-greet services, transfers and sometimes even your own private driver or guide. That way, you can rest assured that, between our experienced team in the UK and our long-standing partners in destination, you’ll be looked after at every stage of your holiday, with someone on hand to smooth any bumps in the road if required.

Below, you’ll find a selection of such holidays, featuring, among others, everything from wine-tasting trips in Europe to luxurious, Big-Five African safaris and adventures across Scandinavia and the Nordics, under summer’s Midnight Sun or winter’s Northern Lights.
