A holiday is more than a trip to an exotic location, it is also where we get to slow down, spend time with loved ones, and create those special memories that will last a lifetime. At The Luxury Holiday Company, we help you create that unique and unforgettable experience!
We are proud to be a leading luxury travel company for discerning travellers, who expect the highest standards in service, luxury and attention to detail. Our commitment to our clients start from the first phone call for planning the trip, to the day you return home.
We help you to create unique experiences for you and your family, and customise tailor made international travel, to premium holiday packages, cruises, business trips, and family oriented holidays for all ages. From exploring exciting new destinations, to world class food and accommodation, our clients enjoy the unrivalled benefits of being a valued Luxury Holiday Company customer.

These exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ experiences are just part of the VIP opportunities we can provide when planning your next trip.
Our Director – Carolyn Hedley has over 20 years experience in the luxury travel industry and has the experience and expertise to match you with your ideal getaway. We take the time to understand exactly what you want from your trip, and have first-hand experience of most destinations we specialise in. This means we can talk you through the best places to stay, things to do, people to meet, and unique or adventure experiences to add that something special to your stay.
If you are wanting to travel for business, pleasure, for a relaxing time away or adventure thrill seeking holiday, we can build you an unforgettable experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
From stylish family holidays, South Pacific retreats and North American getaways to Europe escapes and Asia and Africa adventures, Carolyn has intricate knowledge and experience of everything from airlines and accommodation to travel options and activities. She has a particular passion for cruising and loves discussing options – both river or ocean cruising – with her clients.
Carolyn knows that planning a holiday is a personal experience and takes the time to listen to your own ‘wish list’. She is proud of the strong relationships she builds with her clients, and attributes this to a high level of personal service. It is this attention to detail that makes booking your holiday with her a breeze – and keeps happy customers coming back to plan and book their next holiday! See what some of them have to say.
