Hello and thank you for visiting my web page. I’m Sue Manning, based in the beautiful North Yorkshire town of Knaresborough, close to Harrogate.

Whatever kind of trip you fancy and whatever your budget, I will take the time to understand what's really important to you and I promise to listen carefully to your exact requirements. Let me piece together the jigsaw puzzle for you and take care of all the fiddly little extras, all of which combine to ensure the best possible experience for you. It's my job to stay on top of travel trends and upcoming hot destinations and to offer you a unique, smooth booking experience before, during and after your trip. And, crucially, every trip you book through me gives you 100% financial protection.
