It's Nice To Meet You

I am Steve, and I am based in Sittingbourne in Kent.

Do you need expert travel planning & booking help? I'm Steve Gostling, an experienced Travel Agent. I help individuals and companies throughout Europe with their travel arrangements. I've enjoyed working in the travel industry for over 40 years. I founded my own company in 2019 because I wanted to offer a highly personal and responsive travel service. If you need professional travel expertise, advice or support please get in touch.

I have enjoyed an uninterrupted career in the travel industry for over 40 years and I am lucky to have worked for a variety of firms including British Airways and P&O Cruises. I have travelled extensively with my wife Sue, and among my preferred holidays are cruises, fly-drive holidays (especially US and Canada) and short breaks in the UK where we can take our two lovely golden retrievers.

Probably my most memorable trip was a big birthday holiday to Australia via Singapore. We had a few days in Adelaide, then drove along the Great Ocean Road to Melbourne (with a fantastic hot air balloon ride over the Vineyards on the way) – absolutely stunning! We finished off the trip up in Port Douglas, Queensland, met a few Crocs, Kangaroos and Koalas, and went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef – fabulous!

I love travelling and I love being in the travel business!

Please feel free to pick up the phone and call me now to discuss your travel requirements, whether for holiday or business.

I look forward to talking to you soon!

Florida Villas

02 December 2021

FLORIDA VILLAS When it comes to holiday accommodation, nothing beats the benefits of staying in a luxury villa. If you are planning your next holiday with your family or friends, then renting a villa is the perfect option for you. There are many advantages of renting a private villa for your next vacation. Here are just a few; Privacy: Having your own villa when on holiday ensures that you have all the privacy you desire. Villas tend to be detached properties with their own land and space that you can enjoy without bumping into other guests – and without the noise of neighbours. Staying in a luxury villa allows you to retreat from crowds after a full day at the parks and enjoy your own personal space. The peace and quiet you gain from this is invaluable and adds to the relaxation and luxury of your holiday. Flexibility: When you stay in a villa, you have the advantage of creating your own schedule instead of being restricted to dining options and tourist packages. You are able to tailor your itinerary to suit you and your family, without the stresses of having to wake up on time to avoid missing out on breakfast. It also means you don’t have to rush down to the pool to get a sunbed as well as being able to explore the island at your own will and choose whatever food and drink experiences you want. Personalisation: Whatever your tastes may be, you can indulge them with a villa rental. Your property is going to have more variation and more options for your stay than a hotel or cruise ship. Most villas will have Wi-Fi and TVs included in the case of rainy days and can include cots and baby changing tables at your request, so there is less to worry about when travelling with children. Safety: If you are looking for peace of mind while on holiday, staying in a villa can give you just that. Villas are generally secure and can remove the worry of being around strangers, particularly in an open complex hotel. This means you will be able to fully relax and enjoy the sun without having to stress. Value for Money: It is a misconception that renting a villa is pricey, but when you compare the price tag to that of a hotel for the family, you will often find that it saves you money. If you are a large family, you will get much more value for your money when staying in a villa. Creature Comforts: Villas allow you to feel at home; to really settle in and relax. The spaciousness and privacy of your own villa will create a comfortable environment of tranquillity and if you are travelling with children, they will love the fact they are not confined to a hotel room. Plus, there’s nothing better than breakfast in your pyjamas, even when on holiday! ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. TRANSPORT To get the best out of your Florida vacation, a car is essential. There are numerous suppliers, many based on airport so visitors can head to the rental desk after the baggage carousel then just walk over the street to the car park and away they go. Included in the villa booking information pack will be directions to the villa, these normally start with leaving the airport on a toll road, so always better to have some change as not all tolls are manually operated. Driving in Florida is so easy, ok you drive on the other side of the road but roads are wider and apart from the main highways, they are not as busy as driving in the UK. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… ORLANDO WEATHER One of Orlando’s biggest draws is the year-round sunny, mild weather — we are in the Sunshine State, after all! What’s more, Central Florida maintains a comfortable average annual temperature of 72 degrees. BEST TIMES TO VISIT People are always asking when is the best time to visit when the parks will be quiet. In short, the parks are never quiet. There are times of the year when they are not as busy and that is normally from March to May, September and November. Like no other destination on Earth, Orlando — Theme Park Capital of the World® — was practically designed for kids … but the fun does not stop at the theme parks. Throughout the destination, your family will discover attractions, dining, outdoor activities and feature-packed resorts that will turn your time in Orlando into memories that will last forever. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… THE PARKS No matter the age of your children, you’ll find the perfect parks to enjoy together in Orlando. If you’re traveling with younger kids, you might consider Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park and Magic Kingdom® Park, Universal's Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld® Orlando’s main park, and LEGOLAND® Florida Resort. All of these options have loads of features to keep little minds filled with wonder. Older kids will also find much to love at those Orlando theme parks, but as they age, they’ll be ready for bigger thrills and refined pursuits. Accordingly, look into Disney’s Hollywood Studios® and Epcot®, Universal Studios Florida, and Discovery Cove®, a unique day resort where you can swim with dolphins. For even more fun in the water, turn to Orlando’s water parks. These include Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, Universal’s Volcano Bay, Aquatica® Orlando, and LEGOLAND Water Park, entry to which is available as an optional upgrade with regular park admission. And that’s just the start of all the wet and wild ways to have fun in Orlando.

Travel Update March 2021

22 February 2021

As the vaccine roll continues at a great pace in the UK, around the world the picture is more fragmented. Currently it’s looking like the safest bet for a 2021 holiday is to stay in the UK. What will a staycation mean for you in 2021? It’s a chance to reunite with friends that we haven’t seen for over a year, catching up on the things we’ve missed as we enjoy the activities that we love in the UK’s finest settings. It’s an opportunity to make memories with our loved ones. After so much time spent apart, we’re all eager to be together enjoying each other’s company whether that’s on a picturesque beach, in a lush green valley or in a private lodge or villa. Rekindling our sense of Adventure, more and more people have expressed their desire to reconnect with the great outdoors, getting out into the wilderness and feeling the regenerative power of nature. Some long overdue alone time after months of home-schooling have left many parents in need of a short break to enjoy one another’s company without distraction. Whether it’s with a stay in one the UK’s finest spas, a foodie break at a Michelin-starred country hotel, or simply retreating to a private little hideaway on the coast, I can create your romantic couple’s getaway to give you that alone time that you deserve this year. Types of UK holiday to consider, bookable through me: Hotels, B&B’s, Boutique properties Cottages, Log Cabins, Beach Huts, Barn Conversions, Tree Houses, Safari Lodges Holiday Parks, Caravans, Lodges, Cabins Glamping, Campervans Boating, Norfolk Broads, Canals, Scottish Lochs Hiking/Walking, Biking, Fishing Rail Tours, Coach Tours Days Out, Short Breaks Feel free to contact me anytime to have a chat about your UK staycation.

Travel Update February 2021

27 January 2021

Travel Update January 2021 Mixed news; while the continued lockdown has quite rightly knocked all our immediate travel plans on the head, the vaccine rollout is gathering momentum across the UK, and the world, which is inspiring us to think about our future dream holidays. There has been a shift in demand to later in the year. October and November 2021 are currently the most popular months to travel, with most people hoping that the tipping point between vaccine and virus will be mid-year. We have noticed a trend towards bookings by the senior end of the market (me included), and older family groups; presumably due to the phased roll out of the vaccine. The most popular destinations so far this year have been United Arab Emirates, USA and Mediterranean, especially Greece. For the summer, once again “staycation” UK breaks are proving popular. We have noticed that as most people did not have a holiday last year, they are looking for an extra special trip this year, and some are considering “once in a lifetime” holidays. Traditionally January is the peak booking period, but I think this year it will be March/April when the weather starts improving, and the vaccine programme will progressively become more widespread, which hopefully will bring confidence back to the travel market. On that note, I am delighted to invite you to a virtual “wine-themed” river cruise. Sit back, relax and be inspired about everything AmaWaterways has to offer from the comfort of your own home. AmaWaterways is a 5* family owned and operated luxury river cruise operator sailing on the rivers of Europe, Asia and Africa. During this event we will be talking about river cruising in Europe, with a focus on the very popular 'Wine Themed' cruises! There is also a special appearance from one of AmaWaterways very own Cruise Managers, who will be joining us to share his own experiences and insight. I am pleased to advise that all attendees will be entered into a prize draw for a bottle of Chateauneuf Du Pape! This is the sign-up link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6333312731704586256 I look forward to hearing from you and welcome any suggestions for future travel events. Stay safe!

Resumption of Cruising in a Covid environment

09 December 2020

The Resumption of Cruising: A brief look at how the Cruise companies will handle the post Covid environment. Cruising activity before the Pandemic... Supported 1.17 million jobs across a wide cross section of industries & sectors, e.g. Ground & Air transportation, Food & Beverage, Entertainment, Accommodation, Manufacturing, Professional Services, etc. The Impact of Covid Covid has led to a pause in operations of all major cruise lines with an estimated 2,500 lost jobs per day. Industry Response Trade bodies CLIA & the UK Chamber of Shipping published Framework documents which identify, measure and provide recommendations on the resumption of cruise ship operations from the UK in the context of COVID-19. The Framework At the Time of Booking • Before booking, check the latest Government travel advice; confirm what your travel insurance covers; and check whether you fall into the high risk category (clinically extremely vulnerable) as you may be on the cruise line’s exclusion policy. Before Going to the Cruise Terminal • You should not travel if you, or you have been in close proximity with somebody who has experienced COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days; are self-isolating; have been advised that you must self-isolate. • At Your Departure Terminal • Enter the port terminal with only those you are travelling with. • Social distancing & Face Coverings • All passengers and crew must take a COVID-19 test for voyages on all ships with a capacity to carry 250 or more persons - with a negative test required for any embarkation. • CLIA ocean-going cruise lines are responsible for operationalising the testing requirement prior to boarding. Testing methods may vary based on emerging technology and availability. • Depending on the cruise line and country of departure, the test may be required prior to arrival at the terminal or conducted at the terminal, or both. If a screening concludes you have COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19, you will be denied boarding. • Onboard • Public areas • Staying with the group you are travelling with • Wearing face coverings in areas where social distancing cannot be observed • Crew will also be required to wear face coverings • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection • Cabins • Between check out and check in, cabins will be thoroughly cleaned, disinfected and adequately ventilated • You may have less amenities in your cabin than usual as any disposable items that cannot be disinfected will be removed. In Port • When visiting a port of call, you should be aware of any unique or different national/local COVID-19 related requirements. • Each cruise line may have specific protocols regarding shore excursions. • You may have your temperature checked when disembarking and re-embarking the ship. • Depending on the country you may be required to take a COVID-19 test. • Arriving Back in the UK • On arriving to the UK, you must show proof of a completed passenger locator form. • You may be required to take a COVID-19 test. • You may need to self-isolate on your arrival in the UK, depending on where you have been in the previous 14 days. • You should leave the port terminal as quickly as possible. Access to the terminal is limited to passengers, crew members and staff. Current Pause in Operation (as at November 2020) Cruise Line: Estimated resumption • P&O April (varies by ship/region) • Cunard • Queen Mary 2 28th May • Queen Elizabeth 4th June • Queen Victoria 17th May • Royal Caribbean 28th Feb (Australia 30th Apr, Odyssey 28th Mar) • Princess 31 Mar (US ports 1 Nov, Japan 25 Jun, Australia 31 May) • MSC Anticipate Operating January • Celebrity 28 February (+ South America April season) • Fred.Olsen March/April Will Cruising survive? YES! People love cruising! Once people start cruising they go again and again due to fabulous variety and quality of dining, superb entertainment, visiting multiple destinations without having to pack and unpack, and wonderful value for money! Steve Gostling 10th November 2020.

Cottage in the Cotswolds

09 March 2020

Sue and I and our 2 Golden Retrievers went for a winter break in the Cotswolds. We hired the lovely Hazel Manor Wing through Sykes Holiday Cottages, one of our highly recommended suppliers. Hazel Manor Wing, as the name suggests, is the detached and private wing of a rather grand Cotswold manor home. As we drove down onto the property via a sweeping tree-lined drive and waved to the 2 resident donkeys in their adjacent field, we felt 'oh yes, this is the life'. The main building is a listed Cotswold house complete with rambling roses and built in the typical Cotswold stone. Inside, the cottage is very warm and bright and the large, vaulted living area is impressive, with a large open fire surrounded by very comfortable sofas and a low coffee table. There is an excellent kitchen and dining table with loads of space. I must say that there is an unbelievable amount of kitchen equipment - way more than we would expect! There are 2 bedrooms and bathrooms which are very well equipped including a bath and a rainfall shower. Having 2 dogs we found the fully enclosed courtyard very useful! The location of the property is ideal for visiting the Cotswold hot-spots; Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway, Our favourite was Bourton, but all the towns and villages are worth visiting. Further afield we drove to Bath for the day, and also Oxford, plus Chepstow, Tintern (Abbey) and the sadly flooded Ross on Wye. Although the weather wasn't great (what do you expect in February) we benefited from a great low season price, and there were far fewer tourists than in the summer, so no traffic jams or struggling to find a table in a pub to eat, and our 2 furry friends were very impressed that everywhere was so dog friendly! All in all, a lovely winter break!

Road trip from Kent to Costa del Sol

23 September 2019

Our band (Marvellous Mo and the Back Line Ferrets) decided some time ago it would be a great idea to pop down to Spain and do a few gigs - simples! It took a lot of planning from Marvellous Mo as we needed firstly to secure the gigs and then to hire a suitable vehicle that would convey 5 of the 7 "Ferrets", plus all our instruments, amps, etc - in the end we used an excellent firm called "Vans for Bands" who hired us a lovely extended Merc Sprinter van which was just the job! Due to work commitments, the 2 other Ferrets flew to Malaga on easyJet to join us down there. We set off from home in Kent, drove down to Folkestone, went across on EuroTunnel, and joined the excellent French motorway system for the first leg of our journey. We travelled all day down to the French/ Spanish border at Saint Jean du Luz in the Aquitaine region. We stayed at a great Campanile Hotel I had booked in advance, ideal for a one night stopover, with a very nice restaurant next door. 5 bières s'il vous plaît mon garçon! The next day, we quickly passed through the automated border control into Spain and joined the Spanish motorway network, and after a days travelling, arrived happy, but exhausted, at Ferret base camp (lovely apartment complex with swimming pools), in Sitio de Calahonda, which lies about halfway between Fuengirola and Marbella. Although we didn't spend a huge amount of time there, we had a brief tour round and found the beach area with a robust elevated boardwalk running along the long beach, with many cafes and restaurants. We had 3 gigs lined up, one in the mountain town of Alhaurin El Grande, and another 2 in the seaside resort of Torrox Costa. Alhaurin lies in a quite spectacular location, surrounded by mountains. It was even more spectacular when we had finished our gig in the excellent and extremely hospitable Zeppelin Bar; as we made our way in the van down the mountains, we witnessed a terrific electrical storm which actually caused quite a bit of damage to the South East coast of Spain, we found out the next day from various news items. Torrox Costa was a completely different kettle of fish, being right on the coast with a beautiful seafront, lovely beach and plenty of cafes and bars, including the wonderful O'Leary's bar where we played an evening gig and a "Lazy Sunday Afternoon" set the next day. Torrox Costa is a resort populated by many ex-pats, and less package holiday makers, so it had a very laid back vibe. We had a great time in both Alhaurin and Torrox and were very well received by the owners, staff, and clientele at both Zeppelin Bar and O'Learys'; they all really made us feel extremely welcome and came away with a really positive buzz from both places. If you are thinking of doing a road trip across France and Spain, here are some "top tips": * If you are in a hurry, make full use of the toll roads; they are so much quieter than UK roads - typically 3 lanes in France, and 2 lanes in Spain. You can make full use of cruise control, due to lack of traffic. * Invest in "Tags" that automate the toll booth process; they will save you a lot of time and also you do not have to worry about keeping a large stock of coins! Tags can be purchased at www.emovis-tag.co.uk €10 application fee €6 annual fee €20 refundable deposit €5 per month that tag is used (capped at €10 per annum) + toll usage. * You require hi viz vests for all occupants as well as a warning triangle and a set of spare bulbs. * Fuel/food is cheaper off of the motorway network in France. Fuel is a lot cheaper in Spain. * Speed limit is 130 km per hour in the dry 110 in the wet/adverse weather in France. 120 km per hour in Spain. * Avoid Paris unless travelling at night but be warned they often shut large sections of the ring road for maintenance. * Waze is a great free sat nav app you can download, which has excellent local knowledge as users can share road conditions, road works, and other hazards - also speed cameras and speed limits. * If you are a golfer, you can hire clubs, trolleys, buggys etc, locally at some excellent courses. * Learn the Spanish word for ham and cheese sandwich - we somehow ordered Omelette and Chips in a Baguette! * Learn the Spanish for Tomato Ketchup (to avoid putting raspberry jam on your fried egg)! Three fantastic but very different gigs to very varied crowds. A great tour, great memories made with great friends. Ferrets in Spain September 2019! If you would like to learn more about our roadtrip, or you would like to discover the joys of the open road yourself, wherever it is around the world, do not hesitate to contact me any time to assist with any aspect of your trip!

Short trip to Marseille - July 19

19 July 2019

Sue and I travelled in style and comfort on Eurostar from Ashford to Marseille in Standard Premier class, which gave us roomy seats, plus free food and drink (yes, wine). We raced through the French countryside, stopping at Lille, Lyon and Avignon before arriving at Marseille some 5 and a half hours later, which isn't too shabby! We booked the Radisson Blu Hotel, which is very well placed by the main harbour, and reasonably priced. It has a nice pool which is great for cooling off after a hard days sightseeing. There are many dozens of cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel, all of them offering mainly al fresco eating (due to the fantastic Summer climate), with a huge choice of menus from fast food to typical Provencal cuisine. You are spoilt for choice with local transport options; open top red tourist buses, mini trains, taxis, ferries, boat trips – the most popular modes of transport appeared to be bicycles and electric scooters which you can pick up and drop off anywhere, using an App, very similar to the “Boris bike” set up in London. A “must see” attraction is Notre Dame Cathedral which dominates the skyline; from the tower you get spectacular views of Marseille and the surrounding region. There is a great SNCF train service along the coast to places like Toulon and Cassis. We spent a day in Cassis, which is a lovely old fishing village with loads of back street shops and cafes to visit, and is a lot quieter than downtown Marseille. We had a lovely leisurely seafood lunch at Le Naio restaurant, overlooking the sea – brilliant food and really friendly service! For a short break, with delicious food and drink, great climate, and plenty to see and do, I thoroughly recommend a trip on Eurostar to Marseille this summer– contact me to book!

City Break - Palma de Mallorca - July 2018

10 July 2019

Living in Kent, we decided to try flying from London City airport, with an overnight stay at the Doubletree Hilton Excel to avoid any delays getting through the Blackwall Tunnel on a Monday rush hour morning. We could have taken the high-speed train to Stratford and got the Docklands Light Railway to the airport, but due to cost it was cheaper to drive and park at the airport than take the train. We were lucky with the weather and had a beautiful walk along by the King George V dock before our 10-minute drive to the on-airport car park. The beauty of LCY is that it is so small, everything is only a few minutes’ walk away. Good flight to Palma, even free drinks! Can’t say no to a free G&T. We checked into the Melia Palma Marina, which is in a great location. Just along the busy main road on which the hotel sits, there are numerous and varied bars and restaurants. On the first night we opted for Piccola Italia just a few minutes’ walk from the Melia; I would recommend this place, very reasonable prices. I was pleasantly surprised that half a litre of Rioja in a carafe was €8.50; you can pay that for a large glass at home. Oh, and the food was great as well; if you like garlic, go for the prawns in, er garlic! Nice ambience, plenty of customers, always a good sign, and friendly service. On Tuesday, as we often do in a new place to get our bearings, we bought a “hop on hop off” red bus ticket and “did” Palma. You can opt to add a boat ride as well, but we were warned off that by the concierge at the hotel who said something about Sardinos. What a lovely city! Check out the old town and cathedral (you can’t miss it, it’s bloomin’ huge), as was the beer I ordered at Cafe Talat, one of the many cafes in the old town. I just asked for a beer (health warning) and received a litre – could hardly lift the darn thing! Cheers! Walking around this area gives you loads of photo opportunities - stunning architecture, beautiful views. We were blessed with good weather and I am sure it is warm and sunny for a good part of the year. In front of the Cathedral there is a manmade lake; I would recommend walking all the way around to get fabulous views. My favourite stop on the bus route was Castell de Bellver, a gothic castle overlooking the city. You can climb up the various towers and get stunning views of Palma. In the centre, there is an open-air concert arena where they have classical concerts; I would love to come back here and see one! For our evening meal, we tried The Boat House, about a 10-minute stroll from the Melia. Another great restaurant, we ate outside, away from the main road. Good food, good service, thoroughly recommend this place! Ever since my days of working at BA Sovereign and Enterprise Holidays (oh Steve, I didn’t realise you were that old) Port de Pollença had always stuck in my mind as a popular quieter alternative to the busier resorts on the island. I remember the Hotel Illa D’or as being very much in demand. We checked out the bus timetables online and worked out a D-I-Y day trip to go and visit the resort. We took a taxi to Palma Intermodal station at Plaça d’Espanya, approx €7 and caught the L340 bus, around €12 round trip. The journey took about 1 hour, and stopped at Pollença, the pretty inland village. The main bus stop for Port de Pollença is deceptive, no sign of the sea in quite an urban area; I made the mistake of forgetting this is a commercial regular bus service, not a tourist coach, so was expecting to see the sea before I disembarked. Anyway, after quickly realising this was the right stop, we jumped off and found there is an easy walk through a nice market area down to the seafront. Port de Pollença itself is a beautiful seaside village with a very relaxing pine walk along the seafront, with the Illa D’or at the end. It is a very colonial style hotel with some modern touches; I would imagine it is great for a peaceful and relaxing break, especially as it is now a spa hotel. On returning to Palma, we opted for the Hard Rock Cafe in Palma, another easy stroll from the Melia. Pretty much what you would expect, (health warning) they serve huge portions, we could easily have shared one serving between us; but we didn’t. We waddled up and down the promenade a few times trying to work off dinner. Thursday dawned and the previous day we had seen a splendid wooden train waiting to depart from one of the platforms at Palma intermodal, and thought it would be good to give that a go. We had seen some advertised “island tours” which offered a train ride, the tram, then boat”. Not being a fan of group excursions where you are sometimes herded around with cattle prods (I made that last bit up), we decided to do our own thing. Again, we caught the taxi to the intermodal station, and bought return combined train/tram tickets on the Ferrocarril de Sóller service, which is basically a very well maintained electric train and tram (carriages are made of wood) service running between Palma and Sóller, another quaint town on the island. The tram part goes on to the port, which is a beautiful village and harbour with quayside restaurants and cafes, shops, etc. We ate at the Mar Y Sol, which is recommended and has clean toilets, always a bonus on a long journey. Back to Palma for an evening meal at Cappuccinos restaurant (next door to the Hard Rock) which was a tad disappointing. It looks fab from the outside, very French, smart serving staff etc. We chose to eat outside; have you ever tried having a relaxing meal next to a busy motorway? On reflection we should have moved inside. Food was expensive, service indifferent. Didn’t float my boat. Last day, lazy day by pool writing this blog and catching some rays. Lunch by the pool, great facilities here at the Melia, Palma Marina. I hope you found this blog useful. It is my first attempt and I plan to do a lot more. Any views, opinions, etc expressed in this article are my own.
