The Vacation Company was founded in 2003 by Joan and Tony Blakey both of whom have over 30 years experience within the Travel Industry. Both directors have held senior positions within retail travel and tour operating and have travelled extensively.
As a fully licenced and bonded travel agency we strive to deliver a first class service to all our clients and provide a comprehensive range of travel services, including holidays, flights, hotels, insurance, car hire, airport parking and airport lounges.
Our love affair with Star Clippers started in 2000 when we first sailed on the Star Clipper from Barbados around the Grendine islands and has continued ever since. We specialise in Star Clipper Cruises and believe that our first hand experience of these superb ships means that we can offer a level of service and expertise unrivalled by other agents. We work closely with Star Clipper cruises and are proud to be one of the top selling agents for them in the United Kingdom.
We offer all Star Clipper clients unbiased and independent advice and offer exclusive Vacation Company discounts on every Star Clipper cruise that we sell.
