“In November I was lucky enough to go on my first trip to Asia and visit the wonderful country of Thailand on a multi destination work trip hosted by Travel2/Gold Medal. My Thailand adventure started with an easy 12 hour flight with EVA Air direct from London Heathrow to Bangkok. I must say I was impressed with the seat pitch and comfort of the EVA air seats, they have seat back entertainments packages (although limited choices) and the food had an oriental twist on board – maybe not…

  “Being able to fly direct from Manchester to Abu Dhabi is a great plus and being the smaller of the major UAE States,it was such a fantastic surprise. I had visited Abu Dhabi 25 years ago and it feels as though it has hardly changed apart from a few Skyscrapers. It genuinely feels like you are in the Middle East and not Tinsel town with lots of traditional dress still being worn by both male & females. It isn’t as commercialised as Dubai. It has wonderful beaches,…

Jackie has just returned from a short break to Venice. Flying from Liverpool with Easyjet they got a real bargain! The flight times were perfect for a short break and they enjoyed nearly 4 full days. The weather was perfect with sunshine & blue skies although it was very cold but this didn’t stop them making the most of the days. Marco Polo airport is very close to Venice and you have a choice of ways to get to your hotel. Firstly, there is a bus which takes…

Jackie & Helen were extremely lucky to be invited on an agents trip with Hebridean Island Cruises. This was their experience – “As soon as the invite came in, we knew what a privilege this would be and were very excited. This product is known to be very special and it did not disappoint! For anyone not wanting to fly or nervous about travelling alone, it could not be better. You simply get a train (direct York to Glasgow in our case) where you are met and taken…

 Helen won a bottle of Rum at Monday nights training session in York!

“Hi Paul, We got back from Barbados yesterday and just wanted to say thank you so much for recommending the island and Waves in particular. We had an absolutely amazing time, it was so relaxing and the weather was brilliant. Waves was great, the perfect size for us and the staff, food and amenities were all lovely. Having spa treatments as part of the package was a real bonus and we enjoyed mixing our time between the beach and the spa pool. The view from our ocean front…
