Self Drive

Bespoke self drive holidays around the world. 

If you want to explore new destinations but don’t want to be with a group of people or tied to a timetable, self drive is a great option. We can arrange all sizes of vehicles for you wherever in the world you want to go.  Motorhomes and campervans are a great option for places like Australia and New Zealand and in America you might even prefer two wheels – motorbike hire is another great way to get the wind in your face!

Close to home you can take your car by ferry or Eurostar to Europe and onwards as far round the world as you want – we can book hotels, ferries, trains as well as the vehicle itself if you want to fly-drive.  Flying to your holiday destination and hiring a car gives you flexibility to explore, rather than be stuck ‘in resort’ for the duration of your holiday. If you want to take your motorbike to Europe there are some great touring roads such as the wine clad valleys of the Mosel and Rhine in Germany or the classic racing trails through Italy, ask us about booking a touring route with accommodation for specialist motorbike clubs.

Looking for a Ferrari adventure in Italy? Let us arrange for your own bespoke luxury touring holiday driving the latest sporty models!

Even if you are just going to a Greek island for a week, many hotels or apartments can be rural or quite a walk from the nearest bars and shops, so for a little extra expense, why not book a hire car and explore more of the country you are visiting and get off the beaten track. If you want to rent a self catering cottage somewhere in the pretty hills of Europe, make sure you have a car – it’s a great way to explore getting you to hiking trails, markets, out of the way bistros and get to remote landmarks and amazing view points.

Fly-drive holidays are rightly popular in North America,and both Mags and Jules have done this many times!  There is nothing more liberating that ‘hitting the highway’ with the freedom to go where you want, when you want. Two of the most popular self drive tours in the USA include Route 66 (Chicago to Los Angeles) and the Pacific Coast Highway (Seattle to San Diego). Other good options that can be done in circular routes if you want a two week varied itinerary would be New England – New York – Niagara Falls or a journey round The Great Lakes, or heading south to ‘Lone Star’ lands, start and end in Dallas.  If the music and culture of the deep south is more your thing, take a drive around Atlanta through Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. The options are endless!  Canada has dramatic, wonderful landscapes to drive through – motorhomes are popular here if you want to explore some of the stunning national parks and wilderness areas.

In the southern hemisphere, South Africa is a wonderful self drive option.  Main road networks are good and the infrastructure great.  Drive along the Garden Route, stopping in lovely little boutique guest houses or farmstays or leave the car at your hotel in the Winelands and take a tasting tour, you’ll go a long way to beat the wines and food of the Western Cape!  Self drives in the Eastern Cape can include safaris in the game reserves there. If self drive safari is your thing and you are an experienced African traveller, take a car into the Kruger and stay at the restcamps or drive yourself through the reserves of Kwa Zulu Natal then spend some time on the stunning Indian Ocean coastline. Isibindi have some great self drive holiday itineraries around the Kruger and the KZN coastline. If you want to adventure further into the interior of Africa, it is possible to hire ‘camper’ 4×4 vehicles with pop up roof tents, travel into Botswana or Namibia (but don’t get lost!).

Over in Australasia the huge open spaces of outback Australia are just crying out for long distance adventure driving!  Ask me about campervans or self drives, you can stay on farms and ranches if you want to get a taste of bush life or if you prefer easier driving, hire a car and drive up the Gold Coast or around New South Wales, enjoying stunning mountains, incredible beaches, wildlife and fabulous restaurants and vineyards.  New Zealand is an amazingly beautiful land of mountains, fjords and forests.  You could easily spend a couple of months touring around here.  In Australia and New Zealand it is possible to pre-book ‘touring passes’ for accommodation which gives you flexibility to set your itinerary as you go.  For example, I can book you a hire car with pre-paid accommodation and you’ll get a list of all the hotels that are covered in that package to choose from (different star ratings are available).

So, wherever you want to go on your next holiday, if you prefer your own set of wheels, get in touch and we can create the perfect tailor made self drive holiday for you!

We did it! Nearly 5 weeks, nearly 4000 miles, 23 beds ending at our regular holiday home resort near San Diego. Met some wonderful characters, seen a lot of sights and eaten in countless eateries, some really great and others perhaps not so. We actually met up with Jerry Mclanahan (author of EZ66) who duly signed our book and took photos, I was 66 that day, on Route 66 meeting the author! Some of the hotels were really wonderful. Loads of souvenirs, loads of photos to sort through and lots of memories and events to 'dine out on'. Thank you so much for your organisation, everything went well and worked seamlessly...
Dave & Nicki – Route 66 & San Diego (May 2017)

Everything was done well from Travel with Jules' side. The trip was in itself one big continuous highlight! We took a camper van from north to south island.
Alex Juggins – New Zealand (April 2017)
May 11, 2017

Our whole trip was expertly planned which was amazing considering we were in a different hotel every night. In fact every hotel was superb, this wasn't just the facilities and breakfasts but the first class attention we got at each one. This wasn't luck, it was your expert knowledge that meant we were in the best locations on our route. There is nothing we would change from our trip apart from going again…it was perfect!! Thank you.
McCall Family – South Africa (April 2017)
April 27, 2017

Our self drive holiday to USA's Deep South was well planned and varied and, for the most part the hotels and B&B's chosen where good or very good. The route offered the right amount of driving and time in destinations and was scenic. The highlights of the trip were Natchez and Memphis – and the accommodation in Montgomery and Vicksburg.
Karen Smith – Deep South USA (April 2017)
April 26, 2017

You picked some great places to stay we would probably not have found ourselves. Your local knowledge came in very handy when planning the itinerary - we would not otherwise have known the best direction to do the Pacific Highway nor thought of going to Laguna beach which turned out to be a brilliant place. Also the advice to get FastPass tickets for Universal. You made the booking of the flights and car very easy and those bits of the journey went very smoothly.
Davies Family – California (April 2017)
April 24, 2017

This trip was going to tick off another 4 new States for me making 49 so far (only Hawaii to do … next year, I hope!). Everyone was so friendly and welcoming! A first for me was staying in small bed & breakfast accommodation … I loved it! As usual, the worst bit was having to come home and it’s HUGE thank-you to Mags and Jules for organising another memorable trip.
Jon Dailey – Deep South USA (Oct 2016)
November 8, 2016

We had a fabulous time in New England, loved it! The original Cheers Bar was brilliant and our meal there was excellent. Some amazing drives and view points from Woodstock and Manchester. We explored all of Cape Cod and the amazing deserted beaches. The highlight was seeing whales from Race Point Beach lookout! Thanks for all your help and looking forward to our next adventure.
Kathy Garner – New England USA (Oct 16)
March 22, 2017

Thank you for your organisational skills, your knowledge and every detail of what was a truly fabulous holiday experience. We gave you the outline of an idea and you took it and created a proposal. There are too many highlights to list – overall the holiday met and exceeded our expectations!
Mick & Jaclyn – Pacific Coast & Hawaii (Sept 2016)
October 26, 2016

We loved The Pelion and Pounda Paou so much when you picked it for us in June, we had to go back again!
Greece Pelion – Jenny and David (Sept 2016)
September 13, 2016

Thank you again for your help and support with organising the trip. It truly was spectacular and such an amazing place. The aurora display we got on the 3 nights in Dawson was out of this world at times the entire sky was filled above us and no lens would have been wide enough to capture it
Yukon and Alaska – Mark Tolcher (Aug-Sept 2016)
October 5, 2016

Thanks for booking our holiday back to Iceland. The suggested itinerary and the provided written guide notes were first class. The spacing of the drives was just about right. I didn’t have a problem with the length of the drives as there are plenty of stops and the scenery is fabulous. We were particularly taken with the north of Iceland (Akureyri and Lake Myvatn).
Iceland fly drive – Rory Hussey (Aug 2016)
August 22, 2016

We are back safely and rested after an AMAZING holiday to Namibia. We had such a lovely time. The whole trip was perfectly planned and it went really well - so thank you. Everything was a highlight! The self drive was great. Being back in Africa - the landscape, the animals, the people. We had time together - that was the best of all, thank you. Service rating excellent! You were flexible and patient when our plans/ needs changed. You were always accessible and helpful.
Namibia self drive – Conn Family (Aug 2016)
August 23, 2016

Well what a fantastic time we have had in Majorca. We can not thank Jules and Mags enough. The team at Travel with Jules do not just 'do holidays' they create memories and priceless family time together. Our days were relaxed and we made full use of the car hire exploring the island. In the evenings we walked along the promenade in Port de Pollenca we had our evening meals in different local restaurants. I could not find fault with any of our package booked with Travel with Jules. The personal service from Jules and Mags was a highlight and the build up and excitement!
Darrell & Vicki Smith – Spain Mallorca (May 2016)
June 6, 2016

I have always been an independent traveller booking the holidays by myself as I found it was the only way to get what I wanted, however with Jules, I have found she has a great understanding of what customers need and since she organised our USA road trip last year I have not considered the DIY option any more. Jules and Mags managed to find a perfect holiday again, within the budget, leaving the time for me to plan what I want to do during the holiday.We loved being able to discover the island at leisure, this was the best part of our holiday. The information we received in advance (booking pack with maps, leaflets) was extremely helpful....
Anna Alcalde-Mills – Greece, Kefalonia (May 2016)
June 9, 2016

What a wonderful trip. Holiday of a lifetime. I can't thank you enough Jules and Mags. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will certainly book another trip with you. It was awesome. You are awesome.
Violet & Craig – USA Route 66 (May 2016)
May 27, 2016

We had a fantastic time on holiday in the States. As you know it was a surprise holiday for my girlfriend's 30th birthday, having it arranged by you meant that I didn't need to hide all the details or worry about all the booking details that needed to be done. I would definitely recommend this holiday to anyone wanting to do west coast USA. We really liked Monterey, it was peaceful and beautiful and we went Whale Watching. The drive to Las Vegas was a treat, the rolling hills and mountains across the desert were just beautiful.
Lizzie & Nicky – Western USA (May 2016)
May 30, 2016

Excellent driving infrastructure and incredibly good value for money. In hindsight we should have had a bigger car! We did enjoy our stay in South Africa and can highly recommend many of the hotels and guest houses, staggering scenery, lovely helpful people, incredibly sophisticated cooking (we didn’t have any meals that would be bettered in London!).
Peter, Jean & Hetty – South Africa (April 2016)
May 4, 2016

Your impressive local knowledge filled us with confidence. Your interpretation of our specification was exacting. Travel with Jules did an incredible job. We are very grateful for the level of personal attention and customer care you offered us. There were no lowlights – it was ALL highlights! We came home promising to return to Africa....
Pippa and John – South Africa (Feb 2016)
March 25, 2016

Thanks for organising our tailor made fly drive to South Africa we had a great time! the safari at Msenge Bush Lodge in Pumba Game Reserve was fabulous a great way end the holiday – saw all the big 5 – had a great cottage probably the best in the lodge. Oh I should mention the gallons of wine and champagne we consumed (especially the Cape Town and Stellenbosch area) taking many purchases with us for use along the route!!
Collard party – South Africa (Jan 2016)
March 22, 2016

The trip was amazing and we got to see the Northern Lights on Saturday and Sunday nights so that’s a bonus right there! Everything went without a hitch and we are all very grateful for your professional organisation.
Alex, Jovi & John – Boys Holiday to Iceland! (January 2016)
January 13, 2016

So thanks, Jules and Magsie, for your thoughtful suggestions, for your hard work making all the bookings, for fixing our one problem while we slept, for finding us more time to do more, and for saving us money. It was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
Kristen, Julia and Mimi Busch-Hansen – USA (Oct 2015)
December 6, 2015

America was terrific, excellent music and absolutely extraordinary history and intriguing places to stay, we enjoyed every stop but have become great fans of the B&B venues. I would recommend them all, so thanks for organising those, we'd have missed them if left to our own devices. Eye opening "Southern Hospitality"
Powis Family – USA Deep South (Oct 15)
December 23, 2015

You found fabulous hotels that met my specification in fabulous locations, booked them and arranged train tickets and flight tickets then sent these to my elderly mum so she was confident of our itinerary and travel arrangements.
Hilary Palmen – France (Sept 2015)
December 6, 2015

Everything went very smoothly - the leather travel document wallet was a nice touch. The trip was amazing and we saw so many things that we never would on a normal holiday.
Nicola Ward – USA Pacific Highway (Sept 2015)
December 6, 2015

We can’t thank Travel With Jules enough for all the work and effort they put in to organising our holiday of a life time! From the first email we sent to the day we came back, everything was trouble and stress free. Our only regret was we should have gone for 3 weeks instead of 2! Thank you Jules & Mags for making memories that will last a lifetime.
California Road Trip – James & Laura (Aug 2015)
March 22, 2016

Our Route 66 trip was brilliant thank you. The driving was not as difficult as I expected - we bought the EZ66 guide in Joliet. Grand canyon was a great detour. I just enjoyed meeting the local people, they keep the route and history going, but not in a crazy way, just living on it.
Charlotte & Chris – Route 66 (July 2015)
September 1, 2015

Our tailor made Route 66 holiday was the best trip we have ever done - you did a great job at organising it, thank you! It was a great balance of accommodation with quirky motels, boutique hotels and historic sites. We would recommend anyone thinking about a trip down Route 66 to do it!
Tim, Anne, Paul and Emma – Route 66 (July 2015)
September 6, 2015

You always book everything right!! It was perfect! Won't be long until I'm back in touch to book again!
Caroline and John – New York & Boston (June 2015)
July 25, 2015

Our Route 66 holiday really was the trip of a lifetime and we will most certainly be booking our next trip with you!
Jack and Anita – Route 66 (April 2015)

Anyone thinking of travelling to Reunion should just go! We can’t recommend it highly enough – and make sure you get Travel With Jules to book it for you! :)
Jimmy & Claire – Reunion Honeymoon (April 2015)
May 27, 2015

We covered 1150 miles, discovered beautiful places and had such a great time we can't wait to save the money and do something similar soon. Thank you very much :)
Anna, Nigel and Sofia Alcalde-Mills – USA (April 2015)
June 12, 2015

That’s us back from honeymoon and just wanted to let you know how fabulous it was! We had an amazing time from start to finish. From the buzz of New York to the cabin in Zion Lodge – we loved it all. We really liked the fact that there was such a mixture in our […]
Karen and Graham – USA Honeymoon (April 2015)
May 18, 2015

We returned home on Sunday night from our American adventure, safe and sound … well maybe a few sore heads and damaged liver but time is a healer 🙂  I just wanted to thank you for all of your guidance and assistance throughout the booking for what will be a trip the 4 of us […]
Tony, Ben, Lee & Benjamin – California & Vegas (April 2015)
April 20, 2015

We drank lovely local wine (lots of it!), walked with a Cheetah (as you do!), stayed in lovely personal boutique hotels and guest houses and laughed a lot! Thank you Jules.
Sue Hall – South Africa (Feb 2015)
May 22, 2015

Just a quick email to say we both really enjoyed our trip to South Africa! We loved everything but feel like we need another break as packed such a lot in!! Our highlights included Boulders beach, Abseil down Table Mountain (probably not the walk back up again!), Shark Swimming in Kleinbaai, Bungee Jump from Bloukrans […]
Jo & Ian – South Africa (Feb 2015)
April 8, 2015

My Wife and I wanted to do something special to celebrate her 30th Birthday, one final big blow out of being big kids! So we decided on Disney world Florida and then a trip to New Orleans for Mardis Gras. With the big idea in place, we just let Jules and Mags sort the rest. […]
Tom and Jo Crinson – Florida & New Orleans (Feb 2015)
April 3, 2015

The Alamo car hire which Julie had sorted on arrival into Ottawa was fantastic – free upgrade to a Jeep! Great to see the Parliament building – recommend a tour round (and it’s free!) Great views from the top! The drive to Toronto was great you can check out the St Lawrence river. Had to head […]
Mike & Sarah – Canada & USA (October 2014)
January 14, 2015

I just wanted to write you an email thanking you for organising our ‘Route 66’ holiday. We had the most fantastic experience and it was all we wanted out of our weddingmoon and much much more. I could spend hours telling you about some of the unscripted experiences that I had such as a very […]
Sam and Alex Drohan – Route 66 ‘Weddingmoon’! (Oct 2014)
October 23, 2014

If I could only put into words what Jules and Mags did for me, I've no doubt that many more would use this company. I can only express that hand on heart, you will not regret it. No travel company I have previously used compares and I look forward to booking my next adventure through 'Travel With Jules'.
Steph & Sharon – USA Route 66 from Memphis (Sept 2014)
October 23, 2014

We have used ‘Travel with Jules’ twice now over the last 2 years (last time to South Africa) and have been absolutely delighted with the very friendly, personal and efficient service which Jules has provided. On both occasions she has been able to distil our rather sketchy ideas into more coherent plans which she has […]
Wright family – Italy,Tuscany (September 2014)
November 2, 2014

Just a quick email to say thanks so much for sorting out the accommodation, flights and cars for our Route 66 honeymoon. Everything was spot on! We wanted to turn around at LA and drove back to Chicago; it’s definitely something we want to do again. We’ve taken over 4200 photos!  All of the accommodation […]

October 23, 2014

Our holiday was great, thank you – Thanks for arranging everything and being very responsive with our issues whilst travelling – that was much appreciated. The highlights included the bikes (amazing!), riding through the passes and older roads – we did a great diversion into the Rockies north of Santa Fe – some of the old […]
McKenzie Family – USA Route 66 (Sept 2014)
October 8, 2014

Many of our travellers on Route 66 detour to the Grand Canyon – this ‘cowboy sleep out’ option is enjoyed from Grand Canyon Ranch at the west rim:  On the Cowboy Sleep Out, the best point is that this is run by a real cowboy.  Not the entertainer who tells stories over supper in the […]
McKenzie Family – Cowboy Sleepout USA (Sept 2014)
October 8, 2014

All in all a great trip – we saw so much in such a short space of time, so well organised as always – thank you! Being a generation apart, we clearly want different things from a holiday – I was aching to spend extra days at Zion and the Grand Canyon while Mimi was dying to […]
Nicky & Mimi Fussell – Vegas to LA via Parks & Canyons (August 2014)
September 23, 2014

Our Route 66 self drive holiday was great, from Santa Monica pier LA to Chicago and everywhere in between. Thank you for organising the flights and the RV. The seats you managed to book on the flights were excellent and the RV from Cruise America was everything we had hoped for. Everybody had a turn […]

September 22, 2014

What a fantastic trip and adventure, we drove over 3000 miles saw all we could and met lots of nice Americans! Thank you for all your help and planning, you did a fantastic job from start to finish. Overall the hotels were a good mix, the Allegro in Chicago was excellent with a ‘wine hour’ […]
Tony & Max – USA Route 66 (July 2014)
August 22, 2014

The trip was brilliant and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to arrange something similar for other clients. This was not a holiday ..it was an adventure…a true road trip! 3500 miles all together. Upgraded to a Mustang convertible at Chicago to ensure the experience was fully authentic, thank you for working so hard to put the […]
John & Lisa – Route 66 (June 2014)
August 13, 2014

Well the trip is over and I've done and I've done just over 3,600 road miles and seen the most fantastic scenery, drank all the local beers, eaten too much great food and had a brilliant time. Today is going to be a VERY long trip home but worth it. Thanks Julie for all your hard work in making it happen!
Jon Dailey – Calgary to San Diego (June 2014)
June 23, 2014

I virtually followed Route 66 from beginning to end as laid out in the EZ66 Guidebook that you recommended, and got a real feel for mid 20th century America. I also managed to pack a lot in as well as the route itself. I went on an Architectural tour of Chicago, up to the top […]
Adrian Fairhurst – USA Route 66 (May 2014)
June 3, 2014

Really enjoyed our trip down Route 66, everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. It was an adventure as well as a holiday and we both really enjoyed the trip, I’m so glad we did it.  Thank you for all your efforts in organising it. We used as recommended, the EZ66 Guide for Travellers […]
Keith and Rachel – USA Route 66 (April 2014)
June 3, 2014

Well I'm now in Chicago and have had an awesome time. It's been full on and clocked up around eight thousand miles. Thank you again you're a travellers champion!
John Oliver – Route 66 LA to Chicago (March 2014)
March 31, 2014

We had the time of our lives. It was all terrific. We were typical tourists and crammed in as much sight seeing as was possible! Thanks for all your help in organising this trip. It made it much easier and you gave us the confidence to go "off piste".
Viv & Nikki – Route 66 & California (Sept 2013)
December 13, 2013

We had every confidence in you and trusted you implicitly. It was so reassuring knowing you were there for us throughout. Arranging our flights, travelling, bike hire and accommodation from Chicago to LA, over 2,000 miles all the way - you did this with great care and attention. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We would highly recommend you to all our friends and family.
Sue & Simon – Route 66 (Sept 2013)

October 13, 2013

A thousand thank you’s for arranging our recent trip on the mother road! What an amazing adventure. From start to finish your arrangements were perfect. We saw parts of the world we will probably never see again and were completely in awe. From Chicago to LA a wonderful holiday. The Gateway Arch, Mississipi River Boat, […]
Keith & Sheila – USA Route 66 (September 2013)
September 24, 2013

Lets start by saying a big thank-you for all your help. Our idea of having a Europen adventure in the car (as an alternative to our usual sailing holidays) came last year after watching Micheal Portillo on the mountain trains in Switzerland and our desire to encorage our daughters interest in  history by visiting Rome. […]
Young Family – Road trip to Italy (August 2013)
August 27, 2013

We had a truly memorable time and everything went relatively like clockwork. It was very comforting to turn up and be expected at all locations. Like everyone we guess we would have tweaked things a little with the benefit of hindsight, but overall extremely satisfied.  Our journey took us all around California, along the Pacific […]
John, Mandy, Martin & Fay – Western USA fly drive (July 13)

August 3, 2013

We found Julie by chance after searching “route 66 holidays” and are we glad that we did. With relatively short notice Jules really did create a holiday of a lifetime for us. We had some ideas of what we wanted to do, such as sleeping in a concrete wigwam, detouring to Monument Valley and also […]
Sarah & Jeremy White – USA Route 66 (June 2013)
September 7, 2013

We absolutely loved our recent trip along Route 66 organized for us by Travel with Jules! The holiday was perfectly paced and flawlessly organized, and I am really glad that we chose Travel with Jules for our Route 66 experience!
Pam and Pete Drummond – USA Route 66 (June 2013)
June 25, 2013

Leaving Jules to organise our Route 66 trip turned out to be a great decision, she quickly and efficiently put together an itinerary which we were able to tailor together to meet our needs. We had a great time seeing so much of America and meeting some nice people along the way. All went to […]
Mark Tonge – USA Route 66 (June 2013)
June 25, 2013

Our holiday was amazing! The weather was bright sunshine for the 12 days, which was a bonus. Changed the car to a bigger one with no fuss. In Las Vegas we loved the MGM, a great hotel with good location. The Omni in Los Angeles was awesome, we asked for an upgrade and were successful ;-) The Serrano in San Francisco had wine tasting every evening between 5pm and 6pm which was extremely nice and pleasant! Well located and we felt safe walking around at night. Overall the holiday exceeded our expectations, and we are very grateful for all your help and assistance in making this trip happen!
Paul & Sue – USA California fly drive (April 2013)
April 30, 2013

We would all like to thank you Jules for organizing and planning our brilliant self drive holiday to South Africa at such short notice! The things we did and saw were amazing, we got up as early as we could each day to pack in a lot, we did many sight seeing tours around Cape Town including hiking up Table Mountain and Signal Hill to see the sunset. We spent hours at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the views were incredible. Our Holiday continued along the Garden Route with brilliant accommodation and food every where we went. To see the ocean and the coastlife, nature everywhere and the culture of the people was amazing - and the weather was great too. Thanks Jules from all of us
Roy, Eileen & Jason Snow – South Africa (February 2013)
March 1, 2013

If, like me, you’ve stumbled across Julie’s website after doing a search for a holiday experience, don’t waste any more time looking for your perfect holiday organiser – you’ve found her! Nothing seemed like too much trouble; plenty of ‘what ifs’ posed and responded to with an immediate understanding of what we were looking for. If you’re looking for a travel organiser to tailor your holiday to your requirements, look no further than Jules – thoroughly recommended.
Andy & Graham – Route 66 USA (September 2012)
October 19, 2012

Thanks Jules for arranging so much in so little time and on a limited budget for our holiday to South Africa and the Garden Route. We could never have seen so much or found such interesting places to stay ourselves - from the flights to the car hire to the accommodation taking away all the pressure leaving us free to enjoy the holiday.
Graham & Sue Stamper – South Africa (September 2012)
September 24, 2012

Julie has been the most helpful, patient & greatest person to organise this trip for me & my best friend Liz. We have just returned back from the USA, driving Route 66, WOW, what an adventure Julie organised for us!
Caroline Gorner – USA Route 66 (June 2012)
June 24, 2012

Julie's knowledge of the travel industry, her understanding of our needs and her friendly and professional approach made organising our honeymoon an effortless affair, in startling contrast from the wedding organisation happening at the same time!
Alan & Claire – Iceland (May 2012)
June 15, 2012

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
