Holidaysplease is such an amazing idea. Having a dedicated person to tailor make your holiday and discuss all of you options with you is perfect. I have recommended them and will continue to do so. They offer something extra and make the process of booking a holiday a joy. The fact that you can refer back to any of your quotes through their website is fabulous and very forward-thinking.
Thank you so very much to Amanda K for sticking with me and helping me book my dream honeymoon :-)
Holidays please are one of the best holiday companies we have used and over the last 10 years they have constantly been better than Kuoni , who we normally had used in the past. The quality of the service and the fact that what you had asked for in the plans actually happens , with no negative surprises, makes them the ones to choose for that special holiday.
This is the second time we have used Holidays Please with Linda. (We have just booked our 3rd trip with her also for our wedding/honeymoon). Nothing is ever too much trouble and her hotel recommendations have always been spot on. Can not recommend her enough!
Jess at holidaysplease made booking my honeymoon so much less stressful. I was at my wits end trying to do it on my own and made a few enquiries to different agents. She was very interested in trying to find what I wanted to get from my holiday, and gave really good advice. Always available for questions and so polite when I couldn't chat at our arranged times. Couldn't be happier with the service.
I'm delighted to have booked our hooneymoon with holidaysplease. I usually like to plan and book our holidays myself, right down to the last detail, but I felt this project was a little outside my comfort zone. Glad I decided to call in the experts, we recieved great service, starting off with a broad brief and then step by step narrowing it down until we got to our perfect, dream holiday. Would definately use their services again.
When I first contacted Holidays Please I thought I was going to get the same usual sales pitch you normally hear from companies wanting to sell you something, But no, this was a completely new experience for me, someone who actually listened to my requests. When explaining my situation, they could not do enough to make sure I got the right location offering me a choice of luxury 5 star accommodation.
I would definitely use them again.
My first booking with Andrea was faultless. She found the best deal that suited our needs and made changes as they became necessary. When we had problems with the hotel during our stay she went out of her way to make sure that everything was sorted out for us even though it wasn't any fault of Holidays Please. I have booked again for my Daughter this year and Andrea could not have been more helpful. I anticipate booking with them again in future and would recommend to anyone.
No problems at all, only slight gripe with the co(not the individual) is that their payment terms are far too onerous,requiring full payment too far in advance compared with their competitors
I found Holiday Please through my google search engine. I was looking for a trip of a lifetime, along came Amanda Slade from Holiday Please.I think she is really amazing,
so much time for you,wants every detail to be 100%. She was able to recommend hotels for me in Hong Kong and Honolulu as well as finding me my 28 day tour of New Zealand. Great Work Amanda ( I wish i could give you more stars, but they only allow 5*)
I had the best experience ever when booking a holiday. We decided to take our Son to Lapland and the most fantastic lady phoned me. Her name was Lisa. I have never ever spoken to anyone with so much knowledge on the place we were going to, not only did she tell me everything I wanted to know she sent my Oliver an invitation from Santa with some fake snow in a bag, she actually took the time to do that for Oliver which is something I will never forget. The kindness shown to me by Lisa was wonderful and I don't think I will ever want to book another holiday with anyone else. Thank you so much Lisa.
I rang this number and he took our details asking what sort of holiday we enjoyed, my husband and I both wanted different things out of the holiday, so he gave us some ideas and then went off and put some prices together for us and said he would ring the following day, this happened numerous times until we felt happy with the price and the destinations, Kevin always rang when he said he would and nothing was too much trouble. even getting in touch with the accommodation to ask them some questions that he couldn't answer and then sending us a copy of the e-mail . We can't wait for the holiday now
spoke to a very polite young lady called lauren taplin.. very helpful with every aspect of our holiday including trip advice, sights to see, hotels and flights...felt she went out her way to get us the best possible holiday for us!!!.
will definity be using the company again and would highly recommend to anyone.
Set out my requested itinerary, specific hotels and dates, gave them my budget, quote came back in budget with night before departure hotel, airport parking and VIP departure lounge as part of the package! Great offer!!
Ruth new exactly what I wanted once I told her.
She didn't have to look around she found the
Perfect holiday straight away.
Ruth understood our needs from the start
Will def use her services again
The lady on the telephone was very patient as I missed many of her calls, even when I said I would be there. She found a holiday that fitted my requirements very well.
She was very easy and pleasant to talk to on the telephone, and all e-mails were prompt.
Paula our agent was very helpful and found a holiday which catered for our every need. She was very friendly and polite and made sure that we were satisfied with absolutely everything before we completed the booking. We are very much looking forward to our honeymoon next August.
The resort was absolutely amazing but every leg of the journey was well planned and someone was there at every point when we might have felt a little insecure about what to do next. The courtesy and efficiency of all the staff was outstanding. In particular, Debbie could not have been more helpful. We had a query on the morning we set off and she went out of her way to make sure we felt confident about what we had to do. For people who don't travel abroad often, this level of service was so reassuring. The information packs were all easy to follow and at every point it felt as though there would be a real-life person on the other end of the phone to help.
Stephanie is amazing working very very hard to find us the perfectly suited holiday within our budget, and believe me we really spent a lot of time on it! Booked through her for our honeymoon 2 years ago and have just booked through her again to go Thailand. She will research places for you and advise you in areas most suited for you if you tell what your likes/dislikes are! Booked twice and will definitely continue booking for our future holidays with holidays please.
If you are looking to book a holiday, honeymoon or just want some general travel advice, please, please,please go to these people first!!
My fiance and I have just booked our honeymoon with Bharat at Holidaysplease.co.uk and he was fantastic, I could not recommend him highly enough!
He was patient, when we changed our minds (twice!), he was helpful and full of advice. He was excellent to talk to any time, any day and could not have done enough for us. He worked perfectly within our budget to create the most amazing honeymoon for us. We are so looking forward to it and will defiantly be using him in the future.
Excellent service from very friendly and pleasant Agent who couldn't do enough for us.
I was so happy with the service I chose it instead of a cheaper option with a competitor agent. The agent assigned to me, Jae, was so friendly and has gone out of her way to provide attentive and super helpful service. She texted and emailed me at all times of the day with information I requested. Jae had loads of local information and worked with our requests in a really facilitating manner. I would have prefered that she had the ability to make the decisions on the booking, rather than be a middle man to our holidays, but it was like having a personal concierge at all times when we were booking the holiday!

We just booked our honeymoon with Holidays Direct. I was given Jo Shayler's email by a friend who had booked several trips with her. This is really a trip of a lifetime for us both. We had a few different destinations in mind and Jo took the time to draw up itineries for each one. When we settled on the right place, she then spent a great deal of time exploring different options for us. She was always available throughout the whole process, and it's great to have one point of contact who is dealing with your trip. I was really impressed with Jo - she knows her stuff (and I say that as someone who has travelled a lot.) Jo found us our dream honeymoon, and not only that, she found it for a significant percentage cheaper than anywhere else we had looked. She even sorted out the fact that the airline's computer systems had misread the characters in our names (we have a Swedish last name.) Above all, she was just great to deal with - polite, lovely, funny and endlessly accomodating of our dithering.
To Holidays Direct I would say - keep on doing what you're doing. You have some great staff and a really good business model. I will book through you again and I've already recommended you to friends.
Jo - I am SO impressed with your professionalism, knowledge and customer service. It was a pleasure to talk to you when I rang to finally book. Thank you so much - you obviously take a great deal of pride in your work and it really shows. We will be raising a glass to you on our honeymoon. Our kindest regards - Kath and Jonas.
We dealt with Debbie, from Your Holidaysplease, and she was brilliant through out, arranging a holiday for two couples celebrating there 50th wedding anniversaries, that's us here in the uk, and my wifes brother and sister inlaw, who live in Australia. over a period of almost 3 months, owing to both couples being away she kept in touch, with us all keeping us in the picture. so finally we had the holiday to suit all. so thank you Debbie for your patients and hard work.
I have now booked three holidays through Cathy Bowness at holidays please and have been delighted with the professional, speedy, competitive service I have received on every occasion. It's a great relief to have someone do all the hard work of organising your holiday, particularly when it involves multi stops and locations and great that you have someone who can give you their knowledge and experience to get the best deals. Another perk of going through Cathy is the little extras such as free airport lounge VIP passes for a great start to your holiday and having all your details stored so you don't have to provide them every time you book a holiday. Great company which I have and would recommend to others.
I am and was very please with the assistance given to me by a very well informed and experience proffessional (Michaella Peters) in putting together a complicated around the world trip for me and I will recommend to all my friends and family.
Keep up the good work and Thanks for your assistance.
Mr. MOH' Ackram

Envisaged a long night trawling the web to organise a 3 week trip to New Zealand. One call with an outline plan and within 24 hours had a complete itinerary sorted - flights to Auckland, hotels, car hire, internal flight, and train trips! Brilliant!
Didn't have the time to sort this 60th birthday bash, couldn't get to a travel agent. Dial a flight couldn't help, same with Traifinders. I remembered a link from a website offering Holidaysplease and thought I'd give it a go! Hey Presto!! I have a Birthday ski trip with all my family and friends booked and sorted!! Thanks a million
Booking a holiday with Sheila Menzies, was simply the best experenec, I had when booking a holiday.
Michelle is the best travel consultant - not pushy at all. Knowledgeable and very patient indeed. I am someone who can never make up my mind and it takes me age to finally decide on a holiday - not this time however.
You'd be mad not to use Holidays Please!
I spent two days searching the net myself for the perfect Lapland holiday to no avail, Lisa found it in one afternoon. She was really friendly and goes that extra mile by sending a personal invite from Santa. Great company, I would recommend them.
I found Holidays Please through a friend who also booked his honeymoon through the company. Initial impressions are always important and at first I was quite hesitant however Beth Eckley provided me with great assurance that I was in the right hands. I informed her of what I was looking for and she gave me a number of options to look at, in addition she dealt very will with my questions and requirements and understood the importance of customer relations. I felt happy when she contacted me the day before my departure and when I arrived, this made me feel valued as a customer. In the end Beth arranged for me and my wife to have our honeymoon at Pangkor Laut Resort which was an unbelievable experience .
I would like to thank Beth for arranging our honeymoon and making it a breeze to organise. Whether its a honeymoon or a holiday package I would recommend friends and family to give Holidays Please a look.
We chose Holidays Please for our recent honeymoon to Sri Lanka and the Maldives in October 2013. My initial enquiry was very vague and I was not in any way committed to this company as others were involved at this point.
As soon as I first spoke to their representative, Amanda Kent-Stallwood, I was impressed. Her excellent persona, knowledge of the subject and efficiency impressed us straight away. I really felt she got to grips with exactly what we wanted from a holiday and provided us with the perfect itinerary.
In the end the holiday was everything we hoped for and more. We were very impressed with this company and if Amanda is anything to go by, it really is no surprise that they do so well in terms of reviews and feedback!
Right from my first query, they were friendly, full of useful info, and made booking my holiday a very pleasant experience.
Plenty of communication and solid advice, the itinerary was just what I wanted at a very competitive price.
I will be using them for any future bookings.
I would like to thank Linda for all her help in booking our holiday. She was excellent in taking note of all our requests and nothing was too much trouble when we had any questions that we put to her. We would recommend Holidays Please to any person looking to book a holiday.
