really good help. would recommend to anyone
At the start of our planning we pitched to about 6 different providers. Because of the timings and flights not being available when we were planning we were told there would be a delay in getting back to us by all of the people we approached. When the time arrived for things to start moving Laura was the only provider who came back to us from the original 6. Right from the start Laura showed an intuitive understanding of what we were trying to achieve and offered valuable advice which has saved us a lot of money in the long run. I have no doubt that our experience will be the trip of a lifetime we have planned and I thank Laura for the assistance she has provided throughout.
This is the second time we’ve booked through Travel Nation and our experience has once again been excellent.
Last time we booked a RTW ticket and this time we’ve booked a Latin America ticket that has included all the destinations, flight times and above all the price we wanted.
Our agent Annie was so patient and friendly throughout the process. We did modify our request a number of times as our itinerary evolved and our requirements become more focused. Annie was so swift in finding the options for us and detailing them on email and discussing them on the phone.
I really recommend Travel Nation – friendly, knowledgeable, patient and efficient service.
From my first general enquiry to the almost final details I was welcomed and treated very well by one of your travel consultants.
She proved knowledgeable, professional, helpful and flexible. She arranged flights, hotels, meals and tours, showing expertise and patience and an excellent grasp of what my wife and I were looking forward to with our trip of a lifetime.
No hard selling here - just an empathy and understanding that bridged our age gap and provided us with an excellent itinerary at a pleasantly modest cost.
Based on the service received to date, I recommend Travel Nation unreservedly. Thank you for your expertise!
Je recommande le site à toute personne qui, comme nous, souhaite s'offrir un tour du monde. Si bien qu'il se pourrait que nous repartions l'année prochaine avec Travel Nation.
Merci à eux.
Our main contact (Roy) is a very competent and friendly staff member of TA, who got out the first offer very swiftly and was always very responsive with changes and questions. He found the best suitable route and put some serious thinking into the planning. The only downside was the handover and handling with a colleague of his, while he was gone for holidays. That could have been a bit better. But even here the colleague responded quickly and was able to answer all questions. Overall I can highly recommend TA and working with Roy. Let's hope the support will be as good during the trip.
Oh and not to mention, the price was also competitive (compared to our German quotes - Never received any quote from the UK competition).
Used this company back in 2006 when I booked a RTW rtip, tours, some hotels etc and all was great. 7 years later I called them about a multi-stop flight that I wanted, but could not book directly from the airline websites.
Within seconds of phoning, my call was picked up by Roy Gibb who then dealt with the booking from start to finish in a personal manner, far different from how you can be treated from some of the bigger names. He did not push for sales on other products, and came back to me very quickly with a price for what I wanted, and had found flights better than I could using the companies directly. He held the flights and I booked next day, then he emailed me with some tips on good stuff in the region.
These guys have travelled too which can be helpful when making itineraries.
First class service, highly recommended.
Roy Gibb is the man!!!
Thank you for all your great help from the first day I contacted travel nation until my last day! You have been outstanding in finding solutions for every problem I had.
No matter how many questions I asked Emily was happy to answer and would always go into detail based on her personal experiences.
When it came to beating the price I had obtained from other agents, again she came up trumps as well as getting us on to decent airlines.
Really rate travel nation they're really helpful.
Thanks again Emily!
Because I had mentioned that I had already got a quote from another company I was not sent a full itinerary, just given summary details of the flights. In fact now that we have actually booked, we still don't know which airline we are flying with.
Otherwise very friendly service over the phone.
thanks to Noah for his time and his availability.
Rowena was very personable, and seems genuinely interested in my journey. Any reservations I had about travelling along were quickly put to rest and she was constantly reassuring.
I had intended to buy point-to-point flights for my RTW trip until I met someone who recommended Travel Nation and I decided to call them for a quote on the off-chance it might be reasonably priced. My itinerary is a little bit different from the standard trip but my advisor, Jeremy, was not phased. It was really nice to deal with someone who is passionate about the places I will be going to and was not trying to sell me tours of those places. When the quote came through it was much better than anything else that I had looked at. I then asked Jeremy for a little time so that I could double check the dates and get together the money to pay for the flights and this was not a problem either. As someone who is not super keen on using travel agents, I think that these guys are the exception to the rule and I would recommend them without reservation.
very happy putting my second world tour together with them !
love it that both side can work together for the best !
truely glad to have found travel nation and totaly trustworthy too :-)
my thanks to the 100 % assistance from heather and jackie!
What a great advisor is Andrea she has been and still is a great help in advising and changing details for what is a great round the world trip .
we are really looking forward to it , Thank you very much.
If you want to book long haul non brochure holidays at prices that wont make you wince too much give them a try! Round the world or just traveling for a while they know where the deals are to had and can get them for you. Great service as you talk straight to a real person on a one to one basis and its the same person who can actually answer questions!!!
This is the second time I've used Travel Nation. The first time, two years ago, we asked them to arrange a round the world flight, accommodation at a game reserve in South Africa; various accommodations around Sydney and the surrounding areas; accommodation in two of the Cook Islands; car hire etc and the results were always excellent and exactly what we were looking for. Therefore the staff member who helped us then had been listening well. More you cannot want.
This time, so far, we have just booked flights to Sydney and New Zealand but once again I'm impressed with the knowledge and capability of the staff member and there is a good chance we will go on to arrange more of our trip with them.
We compared Travel Nation with 3 others agencies and obvisously they were the most reactive and professional, which is exactly what you need when going around the world! Norman was available for us and called me quickly when we needed to talk.
Can't wait to leave in a few months!
From start to finish, the attention to detail and the care taken in getting my package just right was a stress-free and well explained. The operator looked at every possible angle for me even when i was unsure about dates and times and organised it so I got a great deal. Will definitely book with them again if i am doing a multi-stop flight again..
Adam is extremely goo seller, but in addition he provides excellent service. I was thinking about byuing from roundtheworldflights.com...but beacause of perfect service I have choosen you ;)
It was all going very well - cheap holiday and good service, but at the last minute what we thought we had booked wasn't at all what we were being sold. In fairness, they sorted things out pretty quickly, but caused a little shock....
They way you handeld our booking was TOP.!!!
Thanks for your help yes I know I am an easy Client but still it was nice dealing with you and so fast.
We were very content with the service of Tanja. The process was long and took some nerves: We had already booked and payed our flight when she suddenly discovered that it did not work that way: We would have flown back from Mexico after more than 90 days, and that would not have worked with the visa requirements of the USA.
Nearly every day we had contact by mail or telephone; we also tried other possibilities over the internet etc.
One week later we booked a flight both ways to the US with you, and it worked well.
Only one thing we did not really understand: You would have asked for £50 each if we had not booked with you. I find this is too much, and it was not our fault anyway.
But apart from this: Very good. We will contact you again for more flights, from the US to Mexico, and more.
Thanks Tanja, thanks everybody!
Roland and Christina
The title says it all - we had a lot of complicated questions, many changes in our request and booking, but the service from Travel Nation (Jackie!) was flawless and very helpful at any time. Instead of getting crazy trying to handle everything on your own, rely on the experienced consultation you can get here. We didn't regret it. :-)
The service that has been provided to me has been above excellence. No matter what I have asked it has been carried out whether its a visa inquiry, what hotels provide which service. I can honestly say I have never had service as good.
I would rewind this company to family, friends and anyone else who would listen,
My boyfriend and I have been saving for our backpacking trip for years so are very protective of it ! We were originally looking to book trough larger companies like STA and Trail Finders although we came to find that because our trip was not your average trip, they were unable to offer quote which we're more cost effective. We found that with these larger companies, they already had custom trips set out and some routes that we wanted to do through South America they could not accommodate for. In the end I found travel nation online and thought I would give them a trip (boy I'm glad I did).. I spoke to David Taylor and have been ever since. David is so knowledgeable from his past experiences and suggested routes, trips and gave is advice on what to pack ect. Any queries as to the stability of the company David really gave me the confidence to book with them and put our trust in him. Obviously we are yet to see how travel nation perform whilst we are away, but so far I have no regrets !
this is the third year we have used Travel Nation and this time as in the past the service was more than excellent.We were asked in plain language what we needed and were there any special requests or needs.Then they came up with an even better itinerary AND PRICE.
Also when we asked if they could meet or better the price for internal flights in Thailand/Laos/Vietnam there was no flannel......they said no thats better than we can do ...refreshingly honest .
Next time we fly there is no doubt who we will go to !
Having booked a once only round the world trip with travel National we can only say what a load of wonderful experiences we have had dealing with Helen, she has been very helpful putting together the itinery always getting back to very quickly.
Hopefully our holiday will be most enjoyable, we don't got till 2014 so we review it all again afterwards
J’étais déjà parti avec travel nation et bravo tout s'était bien passé.
C’est pour cela que j’ai renouvelé un nouveau voyage avec eux.
Bravo à Noah pour sa réactivité, son dynamisme, ces conseils.
Je parle souvent de ce site car c’est vraiment professionnel.
Franchement , je ne vois rien à dire.
I had already left with travel nation and congratulations all went well.
This is why I renewed a new journey with them.
Congratulations to Noah for its responsiveness and dynamism, these tips.
I often refer to this site because it is really professional.
Frankly, I see nothing to say.
Sorry my english is not good
the person who helped me find my perfect trip was very kind, patient and helpful. She gave me lots of options and we booked the flights in 2 days
the only thing missing is a uk facebook page :)
I was busy with another company trying to get my world trip booked, but since I have been in contact with Roy I switched and no regrets about this. He made my world trip even better than I was dreaming for, and helped me very smart to make some decisions. I would recommend Roy from Travel Nation without any hesitation to everyone who like to get inspiration, good knowledge around the world, good personal advice and last but not least, everything for a good price! And a good laugh while doing everything in a very professional way. I am ready to go around the world!
I'm used to book flights directly at the airlines' sites but this time, while trying to organize a round-the-world itinerary, I ended up with a price out of my budget. It was then when I remembered a couple of friends who toured the world and who had mentioned a company called "Travel Nation". So I searched this company's site, I contacted "Travel Nation" and soon I got a reply from Cali Gill who showed a sincere interest for my plans since the very beginning. Since then Cali has been suggesting new ideas, options and alternatives while she has always shown an understanding for what I was looking for and for my wishes too. In fact Cali was so eager to help me out and was so quick answering my emails that it almost looked like she was more interested in my journey than myself :-)
Cali has recently completed the booking for me at a very reasonable price, so now it's just a question of starting the trip and verifying the results of all her work and efforts. I really hope to be able to give her and Travel Nation a 5 star rating again when I'm back. In such a case -and quoting from "Casablanca"- I think this will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
I just completed the around-the-world journey for which Cali Gill from Travel Nation booked all the flights and all I can say three and a half months later is a big THANK YOU because everything went well. It's been a fantastic experience, a dream made true. I also appreciate the fact that Cali and Alarna too have been assisting us during the journey when we excepcionally contacted them to resolve some small unexpected situations. Therefore I can definitely recommend Travel Nation as a trustworthy, reliable, serious and knowledgeable travel agent and so I wonder how I can give them a 6 stars rating :-)
