What can we say!
These wonderful ladies are truly fantastic and we would not entertain looking elsewhere for another travel company.
They have booked us short UK trips, European breaks to cruises and even arranged our wedding for us in Miami, before going onto Buenos Aires then on the Regent South American venture for our honeymoon!
We certainly set Clare and the girls a challenge! We could not have envisaged unforeseen problems getting married in Miami but Clare went beyond the line of duty to make sure our day was memorable! You wouldn’t get that service with any high street travel company.
A first class service and part of the family now!

Having just come back from an escorted cruise to the Norwegian fjords with Clare and Paul. Nothing was too much trouble from being picked up from home and return to all the care and fun on board. Now looking forward to our next escorted trip in July

With life being so busy and Ponders on our high street, we thought we would try a travel agent after many years of booking everything ourselves.
They searched the destinations we’d requested and gave us a short list, this saved us so much time. Everyone at Ponders was lovely and our holiday in France was perfect.
We would highly recommend and will definitely use them again.

Clare, and her team at Ponders, has now organised 5 dance school cruises for us. Numbers have ranged from 25 to 86 people travelling. Service is always friendly and efficient and nothing is a problem to this fantastic team. I look forward to organising cruise number 6 for 2021.

Just returned from a brilliant short break in Porto, organised by the wonderful Clare and Lorraine . Arrived at airport on Sunday to find flight cancelled back to Manchester - within 15 mins on the phone to Clare had rebooked a flight back and found us another hotel back in Porto . Brilliant out of hours service!!!! Don and Christine Proctor

We have just returned from a Cruise onboard Columbus around the Norwegian Fjords. We had a large group travelling with 22 dancers performing 2 shows onboard. This was quite a specialist trip and so there was lots to organise. Ponders were extremely helpful and efficient throughout the whole process and nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole trip went so smoothly and everyone had the most amazing experience - truly a trip of a lifetime!! Thank-you to the Ponders team for everything!!

I live in Port Lincoln South Australia and have just returned from a cruise on the QE2 and 3+ weeks in the UK. I rarely provide reviews but Ponders staff - Lorraine Bainbridge specifically - gave such good service that I am happy to give public feedback. I was initially nervous about making arrangements from such a distance but after skyping several times I was confident to work through Ponders. My wife and I are relatively independent "value" travellers and the deal for the cruise and the back-up I received was excellent. Further advice and connections that were provided for my travel by car through Scotland and England was the same. They will certainly get our business in the future.

Lorraine and the team helped to book our 2 week get away to America. We had no clue where we wanted to go but they were so helpful in helping us decide, they booked it quickly and efficiently, with great, affordable hotels. We even had the panic of hurricane Irma disrupting our holiday, and they were so quick to e-mail reassuring us we'd be okay and they would take care of us if anything was to change, luckily everything went to plan! As a family, we are definitely using them again for our future holidays.

Back from an amazing 2 days in Venice followed by a 7 day NCL cruise around the Greek islands with my husband and 4 children.
The children are aged between 18 and 8 and all had so much to do. The food was amazing and the places we visited were fantastic. It is amazing waking up in a different place every day and was excellent value as every drink, slushy, ice cream, crepe is included so you know exactly what you are paying up front. The teenage club was fantastic and our 14 year old boy made so many friends on the first day that we hardly saw him!!
All the transfers organised by ponders were spot on and I would recommend them as a company to anyone. Will be using them to book next year's holiday without a doubt!!

I have already recommended Ponders Travel to family and friends and will continue to do so. They arranged our three week holiday to America this summer. The itinerary was complicated but everything was organised perfectly. Absolutely faultless!

We have just booked our Summer holiday via the very lovely Ponders Travel team. They have helped us tailor make our own holiday within our budget and for the correct flight times to reflect us as a family. They have searched all destinations requested - so saved us a huge amount of time as a busy working family.Ponders Travel are truly delightful and we would highly recommend and we are very excited for our summer holiday !!

Expertly organised trip to Morocco. The Riad we stayed in was excellent and our agent was more than willing to offer his advice on all matters.

I came across Ponders website by a Google search. I wanted to take a cruise and needed to travel by the next 6 days. I live in the Middle East but that wasn't a problem. Zoltan, a travel consultant chatted with me online and guided me through cruises options. The next day, Zoltan finalized everything in a short matter of time. Highly recommended and loved how efficient their travel agent was. Thank you!

Do you rely on personal advice?

At Ponders Travel we are so fortunate as a team to have travelled extensively. We know how important it is when deciding on your holiday plans that each destination, hotel, ship or other has been tried and tested. We only use highly reputed tour operators and cruise lines that we know will provide you with a top-class experience, no matter what!

Not only do we know and trust the operators we use, between us we have seen a lot of the destinations, over 120 individual cruise ships, and many hotels with our own eyes! We have compiled an extensive list of just a few of our favourite destinations and our top 10 tips for each one! You can find this by hovering over the ‘Holiday Essentials’ tab, or by taking a look at each holiday type and destination above!

Not only that, but you can also find write ups of our cruising personal experiences in the cruising tab!

These share just a fraction of the knowledge and experience we have as a team – it would take years to compile everything! – but we hope this gives you some guidance and inspiration for your next Ponders Travel holiday.
