Why travel with Riviera Travel

Meticulously crafted itineraries

Every itinerary has been thoughtfully crafted by our experts and provides fascinating perspectives on the culture, history, gastronomy, art and architecture of the places we visit. And much like a well-told story, every detail is carefully considered, from the stops we make to the routes we take. We ensure there’s free time, so you can continue exploring at your own pace.

Award winning reputation

Our commitment to quality, thoughtfulness and value are our guaranteed hallmarks. And we are proud to currently hold two Which? Recommended Provider awards: Escorted Tour Provider and River Cruise Provider. This is reflected in the fact that 99% of our customers have said they would book with us again, as identified by independent reviewer, Reevoo. We’re also consistently recognised by customers and the industry for outstanding service and value for money – most recently being awarded ‘Best Value for Money’ by Travel Weekly.

Price protection

When you book early, you’re guaranteed the very best prices and availability, there’s no benefit in booking late. And should the cost of your holiday go down after you’ve booked, rest assured we’ll always pass the benefit on to you. All our holidays are fully bonded by ABTA, ATOL and IATA for your complete peace of mind.

No hidden extras

Our holiday prices are clear and transparent and we never compromise on quality. There are no surcharges and no hidden extras. The price you see is the price you’ll pay. What’s more we don’t automatically include gratuities, so the choice is entirely yours.

Personalised experiences

Our experts have gone to great lengths to curate each holiday, so you enjoy the very best of your chosen destination. To enhance your experience, we offer hand-picked highlights which you may wish to add to your holiday. And to make your holiday extra special, we offer upgrades and extensions as well.

The best tour managers & guides

Ancient ruins, historic towns and unfamiliar landscapes all come to life in the company of our local guides and tour managers. Our specialists were chosen not only for their wealth of knowledge, but also their flair for engaging audiences and sharing eye-opening insights. It’s like travelling with a friend who happens to know the secrets of every destination.

Stays with a special touch

Our carefully chosen accommodation is primarily rated four stars and is well-located. We tend to work with privately owned hotels that offer something special, be it a rooftop bar with panoramic views or a delightful position close to the old town centre.

Your comfort is assured

Enjoy scheduled flights from a choice of airports across the UK or Eurostar travel with regional rail connections to London on selected tours within Europe. You have the option to upgrade to economy or business class on many long-haul flights. On arrival we continue by comfortable, air-conditioned coaches. On longer journeys, internal flights or train travel are included to make the most of our time.

Our unique style

Perhaps our most distinguishing feature is the care we show our customers. We’re a friendly team who are passionate about travel and genuinely care about making your holiday the best it can be. We make every effort to get to know you by name and your preferences by heart. We listen and take on board your feedback for future improvements. And if anything does go wrong, we promise to put it right. After all, we would love you to come back again – as most of our customers do.
