Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular and represent great value for money usually with lots of extras included and can be less stressful to organise than weddings in the UK. There are lots of different destinations to choose from whether it’s a beach, snow, top of a mountain or with Elvis by your side there is something to suit all couples looking to get married abroad. After my now husband and I got engaged, we decided on a winter wedding and that we would like to go abroad to get hitched. Weddings can be so expensive nowadays and easily...

A couple of days before we embark on a lovely family holiday, a guide book for our destination was delivered to our front door! What a wonderful, kind touch from Ria! Thank you, for that and all your planning. Will definitely be recommending you to others!

Tantalising Thailand exceeded all expectations! From the extra treats on the flight to the arrival gestures at the resort, Ria had planned every detail of our romantic anniversary holiday to perfection!! All of our travel information was clear and easy to understand. We had a 24 hour helpline and the app, in case we needed any extra help. Everything was smooth, from the flights, to the boat and private car transfers. We truly didn’t have to worry about a thing! On Christmas Day we had a ‘floating breakfast’ in our Hillside pool villa which was so memorable! We couldn’t have chosen to spend our wedding anniversary and Christmas in a better way. We highly recommend Ria, our friends and family have already contacted her for holiday quotes, from family trips to Disney Land to luxury cruises. Ria will find the most competitive deal to suit your budget. We will be booking all our holidays this way in future as it was all so easy and stress-free, meaning we could relax to the max! Thank you again, Mr and Mrs Pitt.

Ria arranged our travel plans from the start and I am sure the process of assistance will not end untill we complete our journeys - this is is the best part booking through Ria. We had booked our tickets previously with other travel agents however their job ended once the tickets were booked and money transferred. Unlike others, Ria was happy to assist throughout the lifecycle of our journey. Would definitely recommend Ria for any holiday /flight bookings.

Thank you Ria for your help in getting our mini-moon booked. The process was really straight forward! We found it super easy to communicate with Ria throughout, and our experience took away the stress of finding/booking a holiday! Thanks a lot

I am delighted that I decided to use this service and I cannot recommend Ria highly enough she is extremely knowledgeable and has a wealth of expertise in the travel industry. I will certainly be using Ria's service for all future travel plans. You deal with one person, who takes care of everything, even down to checking in, if you need to make any changes - you just deal with one person. It cant be easier than this!
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
