Online Travel Agents
Digital travel agent’s shelves
When you booked your holiday at a traditional high street travel agency half the fun was wandering the shelves selecting brochures from different holiday companies. When you made your choice you would sit down with the agent, give them your preferred dates and between you shuffle the information of departure airport, type of accommodation, how many people it’s for, and all your other requirements for a perfect holiday – and that’s just what an online travel agent does, but faster and more efficiently.
Online travel agents pages are the shelves of glossy brochures, and their Holiday Search section is the equivalent of the traditional travel agent’s pen and notepaper. Instead of laboriously flicking through dozens of brochures to find your ideal holiday you simply select the dates you wish to travel, where you would like to go and which airport you would like to fly from. Technology does the rest, checking often hundreds of holiday companies to ensure you get the widest choice and best value available at the touch of a button.
Two decades of experience
For almost twenty years Directline Holidays has been helping holiday makers find their ideal getaways, and we are proud to say that there aren’t many companies online that do what we do. Our sophisticated travel search software checks offers and prices for more tour operators than any other site in the UK, and we can show the most competitive price comparisons between companies for travel to the same or similar resorts on the same dates. Our skilled staff are constantly searching low cost airlines and hotel suppliers to create our own packages that are covered by ABTA and ATOL, for your protection - and if we can't find one from a popular tour operator we will create one ourselves, especially for you.
Safe and secure
As convenient as it might be to be able to book your holiday from the comfort of your own sofa, the enormous selection of holidays on offer can tempt you into the dream landscapes of holiday hopes without making sure that your savings and expectations won’t disappear when a holiday you booked online fails to materialise. As fully bonded ABTA travel agents, Directline Holidays offer protected holidays from all the top tour operators and many of the more prestigious companies that are often overlooked by other online booking agencies.
We have great relationships with our collaborators, who include Airtours Holidays, Avro plc, Balkan Holidays, Cosmos Holidays, First Choice Holidays, Hayes and Jarvis, Jewel in the Crown Holidays, JMC Holidays, Kosmar Holidays, Kuoni Holidays, Libra Holidays, MyTravel Holidays, Sovereign Holidays, Style Holidays, Sunquest Holidays, Sunspot Holidays and Thomson Holidays, and if we can’t find your ideal holiday from one of our tour operators we will create one ourselves, especially for you.
