Book Ahead

Take out your calendar for the year and decide where you'd like to go, when, and then book it - Easter, summer, October half-term, celebratory weekends, Christmas, the lot. Don’t panic, this doesn't mean paying for everything now, we can hold flights for you and guarantee a cheaper fare. Many of our preferred hotels don't even require a deposit. This will actually give you greater flexibility and what you save on flights, you can spend elsewhere, or just save.

Summer family holidays

For July and August holidays this year, guarantee yourself a warm and sunny summer and head long-haul to the Seychelles. With BA now offering direct flights twice a week, you can be island-hopping in the Indian Ocean in 10 hours. Take Note | Ask us about the best beaches to stay at in August to avoid the seaweed and strong trade winds.

Active holidays are proving really popular with My Native families. One of our top adventure recommendations for 2018 is kayaking in the Norwegian fjords

Destinations we're excited about

The long-awaited St Pancras-Amsterdam Centraal Eurostar link is pushing the city of bikes to the top of our Native Weekender list. Running until 27th May, the Amsterdam Hermitage brings more than 60 Dutch Masters from the St Petersburg Hermitage collection. Heading east, we continue to be very excited about Sri Lanka with new boutique and luxury hotels opening up throughout 2018 - service levels are superb and let's not start on the food...and it works well throughout the year; to avoid the downpours, ask us about Sri Lanka's two monsoon seasons. .

Planning a wedding in 2018/2019?

First of all - Congratulations! Secondly, come and see us at the Most Curious Wedding Fair, Truman Brewery, Brick Lane - 2nd-4th March. We're specialists at mini-moons, mega-moons and everything in between. 

& Christmas...

We reckon you'd spend less money on a 2018 Christmas holiday than you spent on festive food in Waitrose in December. Ditch the turkey next year and head to the pure white sands and rainforests of the Andaman Islands for some winter sun. Choose between the new Taj hotel opening up in March or the sublime Jalakara.
