It's time to look back on 2016 - look out for our new style e-newsletters in the next week, if you are not already on our database please sign up via the website or contact us. 

     2016 was a very busy year for Travel With Jules! 

Thank you to everyone who supported us by booking with us in 2016 and we hope that we can help even more of you realise your holiday dreams in 2017! Travel With Jules became corporate sponsors for The Beehive in Kenya and in addition to our monthly donation we top this up depending how many holiday bookings we have taken - so by booking with us you are also helping this amazing cause!


In February we opened our new office - read all about it here! It's so lovely to be working in a cosy, warm environment at last this winter! We have had lots of visitors and look forward to welcoming more of you in 2017, if you are passing by please call in for a coffee and chat about your holiday requirements. 

A look back on travel news - In the travel industry we never know what challenges will come our way ... ash clouds, tour operator failures, FCO travel advice ... there is always something to keep us on our toes! 2016 saw a shift in the most popular destinations and Brexit had a hugely negative effect on exchange rates ..... then the US Presidential election results gave the travel industry another shock! Time will tell what effect these events will have on the way people travel in 2017. BUT, travel you will! Wherever in the world you want to go in 2017 as your bespoke travel advisors we will look after you, making sure that every element of your holidays is personally checked and correctly booked and of course you have full financial protection. Read here about the benefits we offer you.

In 2016 we made a lot of dreams come true! We specialise in 'bucket list' and trips of a lifetime - Here are just a few of the testimonials and blogs from our happy travellers!

Violet and Craig realised a life ambition to complete Route 66 and sent us wonderful diary notes each day with their photos.

Northern Lights holidays continued to be popular with some fantastic sightings all around the Arctic Circle - the most amazing shots were taken by Mark Tolcher who did a self drive in Canada and Alaska, these incredible photos were actually taken the first week of September!

Robin had always wanted to go to The Palio in Siena so, together with our partners in Italy, we tailor made a trip for him and his two daughters, take a look at their travel blog and their amazing video - I promise it will send shivers down your spine!

jules-and-theoIn other news, Jules met Theo Paphitis to receive our award in February - read about this achievement in our blog. Jules also attended a luxury travel award ceremony at the top of The Shard in London!  

We have also been travelling ourselves - We both attended a travel conference in Portugal in November, Mags had an amazing time in Japan in May (here is a blog by clients Sarah and Jeremy who also experienced crazy and beautiful Japan!) and Jules travelled to Antigua and Dominica (Rosalie Bay) in the summer, read about her travels here, and is recently back from Al Maha in Arabia - a truly stunning destination for which we have a New Year Offer for honeymooners! We also have a New Year Offer for a luxury safari in Zambia. Mags is (as I write this!) in the snowy winter wonderland of Sweden at Brandon Lodge.
