5 Reasons To Book With Fred.\ Holidays
23rd March 2017

There are so many different options when it comes to booking your holiday these days that it can be hard to know where to look first. Thousands of companies are competing for your attention, each claiming to be the best option for your personal travel needs. Some people have their favourite brands which they return to every time, whilst others shop around for a price and package that suits them.

However you usually to go about arranging your trip, there are some major benefits to booking with us. European breaks may be our core focus but we can help you with plans to visit a wide range of destinations around the world. Here are just a few reasons to choose Fred.\ Holidays.

We Can Tailor-Make A Trip To You

Tailor-Made Travel Planning

One of the main reasons why travellers come to us is because they are looking for more than an ‘off the shelf’ holiday. Our tailor-made offerings give you the chance to piece together your own itinerary and create a personalised trip which features all of the things you want to see and do. You may have something in mind that includes multiple destinations in different countries and we can help bring it all together.

From flights or rail to accommodation, transfers and excursions, you simply need to tell us where and when you would like travel and we will come back to you with the details. It may take a little while to build your itinerary from scratch but this flexibility means that there really is no limit to the holiday options we can provide.

Our Team Of Specialists

Our Travel Specialists

When you call to speak to us about your city break, rail holiday or relaxing lakeside retreat, you will speak directly with one of our friendly specialists. Being so passionate about travel themselves, they have a wealth of knowledge surrounding the destinations we offer and can give you some advice based on their own experiences.

Our team is relatively small and so often you will deal with the same person throughout the entirety of your booking. You’ll get to know the person at the other end of the phone, meaning they are more likely to create an itinerary which is exactly what you are looking for. In fact, many people specifically ask to book with the same person every year, creating a great rapport with our knowledgeable experts.

Low Credit Card Fees

Low Credit Card Fees

The average cost of paying with a credit card is 2%, meaning you end up paying a substantial amount for your holiday for nothing more than choosing to pay with plastic. However, here at Fred.\ Holidays, we believe you should have the flexibility to spread the cost of your holiday with a credit card without having to incur these high charges. That’s why our current credit card fees are as low as 0.7%, resulting in a healthy saving compared to other companies.

The Little Touches


The modern world is changing at a fast pace and, for the most part, these advancements improve our day to day lives. However, there are certain things that we believe shouldn’t change (the ability to speak to a specialist every time you call being one of them). With this in mind, along with the option to have your tickets sent out by email for you to print at home, we can also mail them to you in physical form, enclosed in a branded envelope and for no extra cost. We feel this choice provides a personal touch to the booking process, allowing you to choose between the convenience of having them arrive straight away or the excitement of having them arrive through your letterbox.

30 Years’ Experience

At Fred.\ Holidays, we have the ability to draw on 30 years of experience courtesy of Fred. Olsen Travel. Not only does this mean that we have been matching travellers with their ideal holidays for three decades, it means our team is well-travelled and happy to pass on their first-hand recommendations. We are also ATOL protected and a member of the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), giving you peace of mind during the booking process.

So, with the ability to book a tailor-made trip from our friendly team of specialists, it’s easy to see why travellers choose to book with us. For more information or to see how we can help with your ambitious adventures call us for free on 0800 988 3369.
