Very Competitive Pricing
"I have had the pleasure of dealing with Arlinda and Nicky at experience the world travel on a few occasions and have nothing but praise for their efforts. They go over and above to answer all of your questions and are always at the end of the phone if you need anything. It is these important details, together with their very competitive pricing, that make us prefer to use them over an internet company. For these reasons we highly recommend them.:)"

"Having just returned from a 5 night stay in New York I just wanted to say thank you to Experience the World Travel for recommending the Refinery Hotel we were well looked after by the staff there and any requests were dealt with quickly! The location was perfect as we were quite central to visiting the sights and attractions of NY. Thank you for providing a list of places to visit and recommending to book advance tickets particularly for the Empire State Building. We’ll be back to see you soon to book our summer holiday, thanks again."
G.D., Woburn Sands

Went The Extra Mile
Nikki was a great help in both developing and managing our holiday plans. She gave us prompt service and really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed for our trip. It took all of the burden from us - we just had to go and enjoy the holiday!
Nothing Is Too Much Trouble
It was a pleasure booking our holiday with the lovely ladies at Experience The World Travel. They spent a lot of time researching and pricing our dream holiday to The Maldives for 2014. We are quite fussy and know what we want but nothing was too much trouble for them while they patiently trawled numerous holiday companies, packages and resorts before they found the one that was perfect for us! Thanks Nikki and Arlinda, we will definitely be back to book our 2015 holiday with you soon and would not hesitate in recommending you to all our friends, family and colleagues. People should not just "Experience the World" but they should experience "Experience The World Travel". We love it!
First Class Customer Service
Nicky and Arlinda was first class. Their knowledge of the travel industry is extensive and they always try to put packages together to suit all budgets. They are always welcoming and friendly and we will certainly be back to book our next holiday.
Friendly And Helpful Service
Great Tips And Recommendations
For ‘stress free’ holiday planning, look no further than Arlinda, Nikki and their team, at Experience the World Travel. Arlinda put together a great New York break for us, with tips and recommendations (together with a list of shops we simply have to visit). Things such as ‘don’t book breakfast – you need to go out and experience it’ (then we find the Hotel gave us complimentary breakfast any way).and ‘don’t book airport transfers – you must have a ride in a New York taxi’. It’s these things that really make the difference to going on holiday and then really experiencing the place you are visiting. You will not find a better level of service in the High Street so turn off the computer now!!

Amazing Company 10/10!
I've been using the company for over 4 years now and I'm more than impressed with their services. Not only do they find the best accommodation to fit my personal wants/interests but they do it with the fixed budget I give them. Whenever visiting the Woburn office, the staff are always happy and very helpful. As a customer, I never feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. I've just recently returned from Lanzarotee and I had the most brilliant time. Everything from the flight, transport to the hotel and the hotel itself were amazing! Everything I was promised was more than fulfilled.
