Tired of searching around for the perfect holiday option?

I love to book travel;  it’s in my DNA!

The thought of travel conjures up evocative images of exotic countries, spices, scents, music and art – but there are many types of “travel” … business travel with defined schedules and justifications for the trip, “holiday” travel spent sitting on a beach looking at boats or in a boat looking at beaches, and adventure travel based on exploration and new experiences.  What do you seek?  Exploring somewhere completely new, or just lying back and enjoying perfect beaches?  

Create that unique and perfectly crafted holiday to suit you; do what you want, when you want and for how long you want. At Manfriday, I can tailor your holiday around the time you have available, where you would like to visit and the sights you would like to see, the meals you would like included and the level of accommodation you would like to stay in… All of this planned to suit the budget you have. 

Travel is my passion, with over 20 years’ experience in business and personal travel,  with extensive travel in Africa, the Far East, and Europe plus several cruises to worldwide destinations in South America, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean I can offer first-hand advice and recommendations.

I will take the hassle out of looking for a trip – saving you both time and money by allowing you to focus on more important aspects of your life and use my knowledge of the travel industry to find you the perfect option.

With James’ help, I have just saved £500 on my holiday in comparison to my current travel agent – and I have a better standard of hotel and all-inclusive too

Robert McClune, Durrington-on-Sea, West Sussex

Booking international travel and hotels is not something my partner or I enjoy. We always think we're going to get something wrong or we'll book the wrong hotel. We booked the many parts of our honeymoon in Canada by ourselves some years ago and it was nerve wracking, to say the least. I wish we had had James back then. We have just availed ourselves of his services to book a holiday to South Africa and a Med cruise, both for next year. To call him efficient and knowledgeable would be an understatement. He knows all the best routes and deals. He was also able to help us avoid any pitfalls during the booking process. We just told him what we wanted and he came back to us like lightning with the best alternatives. We have undoubtedly saved ourselves money in the process. Fast, efficient and hassle free, we'll always use James for our holiday bookings. A brilliant service

M Beeson, Eastbourne, East Sussex

Having just used the services offered by James Forbes, I am able to relate that everything ran smoothly and according to plan. James took entire control and I personally cannot thank him and his staff enough for helping to remove most of the usual traumas one has to face in booking and actual travel. We shall be using this company again and again!
