Just tell us what you want and we will do the rest!
Why should I book with LJ Personal Travel?
We are independent travel agents which allows us to look at tour operators that we feel will offer the best level of service. Nowadays we can all go online to book & arrange our travel, but people like having the comfort & re-assurance of booking with a specialist. There are of course other reasons why travel specialists, like ourselves still exist.
We love travel & we love our clients to enjoy the destinations that we offer. Like everywhere, there are certain times of year that are good & some are bad. We can look at this for you & advise on where to go & where not to.
We believe that our prices are comparable to those that you could find & book online, with the added benefit to our clients that we are fully bonded, so if anything goes wrong with your hotel or airline such as financial failure, you are fully protected against this.
You will of course have questions throughout the booking process and during the time between booking & departure. We are always available to answer any queries you may have.
We are small & we care. We like to build long term relationships with our clients so that we get to know them and their travel preferences and they get to know and trust us.
Holiday prices can vary substantially between tour operators for a variety of reasons, but it is our belief we offer some of the best prices available to the destinations that we offer. If, however, you find this is not the case, please do let us know before you book elsewhere.
With L J Personal Travel you can rest assured that if the worst should happen your holiday or money paid for it is fully protected.
We act as agent on behalf of various Tour Operators, mainly who are ATOL protected with the Civil Aviation Authority. Not all holiday or travel services offered and sold by us will be protected by the ATOL Scheme. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. We are also bonded members of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) and as such must abide by a very strict code of conduct. We strongly recommend checking www.abta.com when choosing a company to book your travel arrangements and verify that they are listed.
Tour Operator Partners
You may have found the holiday of your dreams with another tour operator or travel agent already, but are looking to combine this with our personal level of service and expertise. If this is the case, simply call or email us & we will do our very best to find the same option for you. We work closely alongside all major tour operators as well as smaller specialist companies, allowing you to have their products, with our customer care.
Our vouchers have proved to be very popular. These can be purchased to give to friends and family for any occasion, and then used towards the cost of a holiday or towards special upgrades chosen by the recipient that they may not otherwise take advantage of.
Costs & Deposit
The costs that we offer to our clients will include all known extras, and as such there will be no additional supplements, unless we make you aware of these. Deposits can vary but will usually start from £120 per person. Balances are due 12 weeks prior to travel.
Payments can be made by Credit or Debit card, but there is a charge of 2% made on Credit card transactions. Payment can also be made by cheque to ‘Freedom Travel Group’
If you have your travel dates to hand simply call us so that we can start the ball rolling for you. This means that we will also have your details to hand for when some of our exclusive savings become available.
If you have any other questions about us please do not hesitate get in touch.
