44 YEARS AND STILL GOING STRONG!
Founded in 1974 by the Widdowson family, Major Travel was created to serve the needs of travel agents. Whilst the company has grown to become a significant wholesaler in the travel industry the core family values upon which the business was established upon still remain at the heart of the company's culture and ethos. At the core of our values is quality of service. Whilst pricing product diversity and technology are all important they become redundant in the absence of outstanding service. So, whilst we have unbeatable pricing, a diverse product offering and the best technology in our sector, you can be sure that you will always get the same personal attention that you have enjoyed for over 40 years!

I would just like to pass on my thanks to both Chaya and Ami for all their help with my bookings. I know Chaya came in on Saturday which was her day off to help sort the booking - she has been brilliant sorting this out for me making sure confirmations and vouchers are sent promptly to me.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the extra work you did with my cricket tour group to South Africa in January. I met with some of the group recently and they reported that everyt hing you/we arranged for them went very smoothly and that they were very pleased with the arrangements. So much so that they are thinking of doing a similar trip in early 2017. Thank you again for all your help.

The Internet Traveller
I like booking my clients with Major Travel because: I know Im going to get a great service, the Major Web site is easy and quick to use, I can call and get a price very quickly over the phone without having 9 options to choose from before I get through to anyone, and above all I know that I am getting a competitive rate

I recently tried Major when I was trying to match an Expedia quote. The consultant did her best to get near the price and the customer booked. This gave me confidence to try them for my next quote and they were cheaper than any other operators and was soon followed by another booking. I have found the consultants to be helpful, they have held options and booked airline seats for me and having a Freephone number is vital when I’m a homeworker! I have advertised lots of their great deals too. There are also lots of great incentives for us – I look forward to many more major bookings in the future, and would highly recommend.

We have had a complaint in Swindon branch about a holiday booked through Major, partly against us and partly against them. Major (and in particular Mary Arpino the Sales & Marketing Director) have been absolutely fantastic, making the customer a very fair offer but more importantly keeping our branch in the loop, liaising with the branch manager about their findings before drafting anything up to the customer and checking that their response looks ok with us first – very unusual but great stuff. The customer is looking for any excuse to take their complaint further and I am absolutely certain that Major’s professionalism has prevented the customer having ammunition to redirect the complaint against us (unlike the usual tour operator response: blame your travel agent!)
The website is easy to use and the prices/availability are live making the whole thing a "MAJOR" stressfree experience
I have used Major on several occasions. I always find the staff to be very friendly and knowledgeable, especially when you have a very vague enquiry they can generally put it all together. The prices are very good and I like the way everything works so smoothly, ease of confirmation coming through and tickets etc. The love2 shop vouchers are a bonus.
