“I have just had the best holiday EVER ……ten nights in the Indian Ocean on the island of Kuramathi in the Maldives. With my husband and my 11 yr old son we left Manchester on Boxing Day where it was cold & snowy and arrived into Male where it was 28 degrees and sunshine – heaven! It was then an hour and half speed boat journey to our Island. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and we were taken to our room for the next ten…

“I recently visited India for the 4th time but his time to four places that I’ve never been to on previous trips and this has given me a whole new dimension for travel to India.   I started off in Mumbai (Bombay of Old) which is a wonderful city. ‘The Gateway to India’ based on a sea peninsula, it gives the city a totally different feel to any other Indian city I have visited.

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…

Helen was extremely lucky to have gone on an agent trip to Russia recently. This is what she had to say – “I have worked in the travel industry for many years and have traveled to some amazing countries and when I was offered a trip to visit Moscow and St Petersburg with Regent Holidays , I knew I had to go and see what this fascinating country had to offer. The visa process was (surprisingly) relatively easy! I completed the application form online and printed it.  Along…
