Ultimate round the world booking made at Solent World Travel

We’re proud to write about one of the biggest and most interesting bookings that we’ve ever put together. It really is an once-in-a-lifetime holiday. It all started when a customer walked in to our branch here, at Lee-on-the-Solent and asked if we could help with a very detailed trip and of course we could!

As I asked where they wanted to go, I was intrigued as the list kept getting longer… Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket, Vietnam, Shanghai, Beijing, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, and it went on. Every place requested was a bucket list trip, and one that people dream of. Over the course of six months, this ultimate holiday would happen.

When I asked how they had heard of us, they explained that it was from one of our brochures that had landed on their door step. It contained offers from around the world and some at which were on their list so we could help them put the dream holiday together.

From our initial chat, I started putting the trip together, jotting down ideas when I thought of them and being in constant contact with the customer when-ever I had a brain wave. I started to get to know them really well, and anticipated what they were going to ask next so I could have it in place for them.

They decided to come back to the UK via Cunard on the Queen Victoria and during their stay they will also be travelling on the Orient Express and driving around in a VW Campervan over three months. Included in all this, they’ll be stopping at Elephant Hills in Thailand, visiting the River Kwai Bridge, stopping at local lantern workshops and the Cu Chi Tunnels.

Heading off later in the year, we’ll await the fascinating stories and pictures from the trip. I’m hoping there are more holidays to come like this, as to see everything coming together is an amazing experience.
