Media Release: Think of your heart’s desire and then call the Elite Travel Club

THE discerning traveller’s dilemma has always been who to turn to for trustworthy guidance when booking that special holiday, experience or adventure?

Enter ‘The Elite Travel Club’, an unique and comprehensive travel service that launches on 15th September 2010.

Why unique?

The concept of the Elite Travel Club comes from Kelso-based exclusive use property experts, Loyd Townsend-Rose, who, for many years, have provided the ultimate in luxury vacations in castles and mansions throughout Scotland and England.

Director, Andrew Loyd, conceived the Elite Travel Club as an one-stop shop for high-end travellers offering a helpful route through huge spectrum of luxury travel sites.

He set about contacting top level agents in his field who specialised in overseas locations and formed a consortium of recognised, trusted and established small luxury travel specialists with resources, contacts and the expertise to guarantee unrivalled access to many unforgettable holiday experiences.

The Elite Travel Club currently comprises nine travel specialists – Ampersand Travel, Exeter International, Five Star Greece, Loyd & Townsend Rose, Simoon Travel, Sincerely Paul, Consensio, VentureCo and OpusJets.

More specialist firms will be invited to join The Elite Travel Club in due course.

Thanks to this amalgamation of specialists, clients booking through The Elite Trvel Club can do so with confidence, knowing that their holiday has been put together by the combined knowledge of the best and most experienced in the business.

Loyd said: “By choosing the very best boutique company for various key destinations, we are giving them a stamp of excellence which will, in turn, give clients confidence to use them.

“We want clients to consider the Elite Travel Club as their first port of call whether they are seeking a Scottish castle for a 50th birthday, a Greek estate for summer holidays, some hard to find London opera tickets, a family adventure into the foothills of the Himalayas, a travel itinerary to the Algerian desert or a trip of a lifetime to Russia. We aim to meet each and every desire of each and every client.”

The Elite Travel Club will source all that an insatiable traveller might wish for – from lavish luxury and grand hotels to discreet, exclusive or off the beaten track destinations. The organisation is designed to build a trusted network of specialist who are passionate about travel and whose life is spent sharing that passion for the benefit of the consumer. All of the members are based in the UK and meet in London at least twice a month.

James Jayasudera, of Ampersand Trave,l said: “I was thrilled to join the Elite Travel Club with its hugely inspirational members.

“All are passionate about their specialist areas and the unrivalled knowledge is boundless. What also strikes me is the collective sophisticated and deep understanding of what luxury is all about.

“The club has brought extraordinary specialists together and opened up a world of opportunities both to club members and our clients. I strongly believe that it is impossible to specialise in travel to the four corners of the globe as so many large operators profess to do.

“The creation of The Elite Travel Club really is a ground breaking move and a great addition to the world of high-end travel.”
