James was a Legend


"James Whittaker Shepherd was a legend. He went above and beyond the call of duty for the average travel agent! He not only found us a honeymoon destination but found us a memory that will live in our hearts forever."

A Trusted Customer

Excellent Service


"They worked hard at providing to us choices with very good competitive quotes and excellent service. They were also able to price match (and slightly cheaper) a deal we got elsewhere. Highly recommend them, they are prompt with their communication."

5* Service


"Despite changing my mind about the type of holiday I wanted James was consistently lovely and understanding! Excellent customer service, just a year and a bit to wait for the holiday now!"


Claire Louth

Fabulous customer service from a great team!

 "The service at Travel Designers is excellent. From the day I walked in to discuss possible destinations in the Maldives we knew we were in good hands. They listened to what we like and don't like and found the perfect place for us, even contacting the operator to let them know that it was our Silver Wedding anniversary trip, which resulted in us being given a room upgrade on arrival. When I went back to them with a list questions shortly before the holiday, James spent ages on the phone checking details so that I would have all the information I needed. Nothing was too much trouble, their customer care and service is absolutely excellent. We even had a lovely follow-up letter shortly after our return. Yes, we would use them again - in fact we have already been back in to book our next holiday!!" 


Kim Honey


Professional and knowledgable service

"Amazing customer service and prices. I asked A LOT of questions via email, changed my requirements a few times but every response was prompt and curtious, it was that easy to organise and book via email I never felt the need to ring. Top class service and cheapest quote against all the other Maldives specialists."
