Why TravelLab?

22 Dec

Dreaming up some big travel plans for 2019 and beyond? Well we’ve put together a short article explaining why you should come to TravelLab to make your dreams become a reality this coming year…



No matter what your budget is, you always want to make sure your hard-earned money is being stretched the best it can be – and it’s our job to ensure you do so. As an independent agent, we work with over 300 of the UK’s top tour operators, so we can find and tailor the perfect itinerary for your next dream adventure. The vast majority of these operators we partner with offer full price parity – i.e. we can offer you the exact same price you would find online, and in most cases offer a discount on top! The way this works is rather than adding any money onto the cost of your holiday, we retain a small commission from the operators you would normally book directly with at full price. See diagram below explaining this*:


There are also loads of ‘tricks of the trade’ that can mean you end up saving a fortune! Did you know that airlines offer airfares that can be hugely discounted if you book the flight alongside a hotel/tour? We can also bundle multiple airlines onto one ticket and condense this onto a cheaper, deposit-able fare, meaning you save money and you only pay a small amount upfront.

In addition to this, our team offer a price match promise against other travel agents, so you can rest assured you’re always getting the most out of your budget. Support your local, independent high street stores and pay no less for doing so – isn’t it a no brainer?



Knowledge & Expertise

Our small, but incredibly knowledgeable team have decades of combined industry service, along with vast amounts of personal travel experiences, which mean we can advise and assist you in whatever your next adventure may be. We’ve travelled to over 100 different countries between us, combining everything from backpacking in hostels, through to luxury cruises and everything in between. Want to go on a safari? We’ve done it. Want to go on your first group tour and not sure quite what to expect? We’ve done it. Planning your first cruise? You get the idea…












Convenience & Service

Clicking ‘book’ on an online website is nice and easy, but what about the hours and hours of research that goes on beforehand to help you decide where you’re going to go, or which hotel you’re going to stay in, or which tour of Machu Picchu you’re going to do? If you’ve saved up for months for your dream trip away, don’t you want to be absolutely sure what you’re booking is going to be incredible?

Wouldn’t it just be easier to just pop into one of our stores, drop us an email or ring up our team, or even message us on Facebook, explain what you’re looking for in as much or as little detail as you can, and let us do the leg work – it is our job after all (and remember – it wont cost you any more!).

We also process everything, pick your seats, check you in and print your boarding passes for you – the only thing you have to do is turn up to the airport…
