I asked Tony for his help with planning what I wanted to be a holiday of a lifetime for our family. We are not used to traveling long haul for holidays, so I wanted a few options to suit our budget. Tony quickly came up with three options for Mauritius, which we were able to reduce to one fairly quickly with the help of some personal recommendations and advice. Tony had booked a holiday for a family at our resort before, and had wonderful feedback so we knew he was able to pass on advice based on recent and real experience.

The holiday did not disappoint. Tony had given us some guidance too on good external activities and trips to book.

All in all, it was a holiday to remember forever and I really must thank Tony for all he did to make it happen. We travelled to and from Mauritius and enjoyed our time there that little bit more knowing that it had all been planned so professionally.

Unwin on safari

My mother engaged Tony to organise a once-in-a-lifetime holiday: a safari in Tanzania followed by a beach week in Zanzibar for the 5 of us. Tony was extremely efficient & keen to plan & organise a trip that would meet our requirements. After the first ‘draft’, we suggested a few changes which Tony incorporated immediately. All the details & the itinerary were meticulously planned, organised & communicated to us. 

The holiday was fabulous. We are hugely grateful to Tony for planning & organising this - he has already booked another holiday for us at Christmas. We will certainly use him again & would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.

Andy Parsons on cruise

Another great holiday booked with Travel Tony. Our second cruise booked with Tony on NCL Getaway from Rome to Lisbon. As always Tony took care of the whole booking from flights to transfers and the actual cruise. Seamless as always and any queries quickly answered by Tony (not having to wait in a phone queue or online chat). How much did this concierge service cost. Nothing. Exactly the same as if I booked it direct.

Mauritius (2)

As a family that's not been beyond Europe for the last 15 years, we were slightly nervous about booking a big holiday but we entrusted our "once-in-a-lifetime" Mauritius trip to Tony and I'm really glad we did. Tony has detailed knowledge of destinations in all corners of the World and having listened to all our needs he recommended a beautiful hotel that ticked all our boxes, as well as a couple of other options over a range of prices. Not only was the resort just what we were looking for, Tony had picked it for its location: it was on the sheltered side of the island with the best weather and the nicest beaches, but also within easy reach of the capital where we planned to visit family during our trip. Tony also took the trouble to recommend some things for us to see during the holiday and gave us tips on how to go about it, which meant we enjoyed a number of local sights and experiences. In the run-up to the trip, we asked Tony to arrange travel insurance which was both straightforward and competitive, and in the days before the flight out, he prompted me to pre-book airport parking in order to save a few hundred pounds. I was concerned that some countries can be a pain to get into with additional requirements for Covid, passport validity etc., but Tony talked me through everything and really made it feel much less stressful. Needless to say, the trip was amazing, we had a wonderful time and both the resort and the whole island were fantastic. We were really struck by the caring attitude of all the staff at the resort which underlined why Tony recommended it in the first place... it truly was incredible. Tony checked in with us by text whilst we were away, and again when we returned - it was a great comfort to know that if we had any difficulties we could have just given him a call for advice or help. It goes without saying that we'll be booking all our holidays through Tony in the future.

Neil Phillipson - August 2023

I can highly recommend Tony for anyone considering booking their next holiday. Nothing is too much trouble - from providing initial location suggestions to finalising details, Tony provides a calm and organised approach. Our resort was an excellent suggestion and had something for everyone in our group, with great facilities and situated in a lovely, picturesque location.

Martine Robins – July 2023

Thanks Tony for finding us a fantastic holiday in Crete. Just superb. Your booking process was slick and we felt well catered for at all stages and made sure we had everything in place prior to going away. Couldn't have asked for more - and the extra upgrade on arrival was a great surprise - thank you! We will definitely be using your services again.

Kevin Gatland – July 2023

Tony has been absolutely amazing in booking us our "mini moon" as we could not go on our original honeymoon due to COVID. Tony recommended Malta as our destination to fit our budget and a 5 star hotel which most certainly lived up to its reputation. Tony phoned the hotel a few times before we went away and he managed an upgrade and bubbly and chocolates in our beautiful room on arrival. Nothing is ever too much for Tony and I will most definately be booking all future holidays with Travel Tony!! Thank you is just not enough

I have used Tony for a few years now. From skiing trips, and weekends away to a holiday in the Bahamas with friends and family. I have always been impressed with his knowledge and service; nothing has ever been too much. I introduced Tony to my mother in her 70s; she has used his service repeatedly and always been delighted with him. I have the comfort in knowing that she is well taken care of. Tony is such a lovely chap to deal with and will always recommend him to everyone I know.

Tony arranged a fantastic River Cruise for us on the Danube to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. He advised which cruise company and which cabin on the ship would be best for our requirements. He also helped us with our Travel Insurance and his service and advice was fantastic. We would highly recommend Tony and hope to use him again when we are planning our next holiday.

Just back from a fabulous family holiday in Barbados, smoothly organised by the lovely Tony Chant. He did all the research and hard work, the holiday went like clockwork, and the resort was perfect. Thank you Tony!

Thank you Tony for booking us a fabulous trip to Turkey, resort was great, staff so helpful and attentive! All worked well and the arrangement and rearrangements you made for us due to the pandemic went above and beyond! We will most certainly be booking with you again!

maldives Tony Chant 5

Tony helped arrange a once in a life-time trip to the Maldives for me, my mum and my sister. He was meticulous with his planning from getting us the best sunset pod with our own private plunge pool, all the way down to airport assistance for my Mum who is registered disabled. He kept us up to date every step of the way and kept us in the loop with all of the added extras we could add to the holiday.

It was the best holiday we have ever been on and we were so happy that we called Tony again to book a trip to Antigua a year later, the whole process was seamless and planned with such careful and precise detail again. Last year Tony organised a trip for me and my other half to Tulum, Mexico, we arrived to a surprise room upgrade- another personal touch that makes Tony one of a kind, and the service he provides so bespoke. I couldn't recommend Tony enough, I can't wait for the next
holiday Tony helps us with!

Claire Taylor – September 2022

Tony has been great. It is really reassuring to have a travel expert on our side during these chaotic times! Really looking forward to our holiday in Sardinia.

Clare Johns – May 2022

Tony was fantastically helpful from start to finish, we really were bowled over by his professionalism and determination to get us the best deal possible. Wouldn’t hesitate to use him again in the future. Thank you Tony.

Gary Bullen – September 2022

Tony really knows his holidays and made our trip to Mauritius stress free and the perfect holiday. He did all the leg work, knew the best resorts and got us a great deal. His assistance on the run up when there was a few Covid wobbles was priceless, thank you so much Tony! Highly recommended.

Family Moore_Turkey 2020

Tony provides an excellent service, always. He has booked endless holidays for our family - from Turkey to Turks & Caicos in the summer and northern Finland in the winter. Tony will use his vast supplier base to recommend options. He makes a huge effort to get to know your family and therefore what works for you. Always use an agent when booking a holiday, it saves so much hassle and you will still get competitive prices. Give Travel Tony a call!

Vicki Moore – August 2022

My husband and I booked our honeymoon with Tony, and we are so glad we did! An absolutely effortless process - from Tony doing all the research, presenting options, notifying us of a superb deal, handling all logistics and ensuring we had good Covid cover and insurance. We had an absolutely incredible 7 nights in the Maldives, staying at Oblu Nature Helengeli. Thank you, Tony - a perfect honeymoon to remember!

Jennifer Clay – June 2022

Thank you Tony for arranging such a fabulous (and much needed!) break in Croatia. The island of Korcula was beautiful and the sunsets from the old town were spectacular! All the travel arrangements ran like clockwork and we really appreciated leaving our luggage with the taxi driver while we enjoyed a day in Dubrovnik before our afternoon ferry to Korcula. Very happy to recommend Tony and we will be back to plan our next holiday.

Vanessa Beech – June 2022

Tony provides a wonderful service from suggesting fantastic holiday options to handling last minute changes with consummate ease. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

Outstanding service and support. Tony organised our Wedding Anniversary holiday to Barbados recently. Everything was exactly as promised and even though there was a minor glitch with our flight booking (the airline's fault not Tony's) it was dealt with clinically and efficiently. On top of all of the above we got an outstanding deal which despite best efforts was impossible to match online. Many thanks, Tony, we'll be back.

Paul Bridgland – October 2018

Tony has looked after my wife & I for some time now. He works hard to ensure he understands what you’d like & then uses his fantastic knowledge to match this to a great holiday. Service is always swift & he keeps you updated without being asked. A good guy, and very professional, I will continue to use him.

Robert Coyle – August 2020

Tony did a great job for me, searching for a really tricky holiday idea that I needed to organize. While that didn't come off, he did book me another holiday and saved me money compared to the price that I could get on the internet. Thanks, Tony.

Tim Gibbons – October 2020

We’ve used Tony twice now for holidays (Maldives and Portugal). He’s been absolutely fantastic; great advice, service and value. He’s been really helpful in finding the perfect hotel and suggesting locations. The holiday he arranged to the Maldives was absolutely perfect. We’re now talking to Tony about our next trip and can’t wait.

I can't recommend Tony and his attention to detail highly enough! From the minute I gave Tony our holiday brief to the time we landed back in the UK, Tony took care of everything. He immediately understood the type of holiday I wanted and came back with some amazing options.

He has the patience of a saint! Tony has managed all the issues coming up a result of the pandemic and he was forever optimistic that our holiday to the Greek Islands would happen and it did! He held my hand each step of the way and when our flight out was cancelled days before we were due to leave, he calmly ran through the options and presented everything in a timely and clear manner. Tony should be everyone's go-to holiday agent and I wouldn't consider using anyone else in the future.

Rebecca Newenham – August 2020

Powney

We have just had one of our favorite holidays by far! Tony had coordinated everything down to the finest detail - we stayed in six different hotels, had multiple taxi/catamaran transfers, and even hired a car with everything timed, planned, and arranged to his usual standard of perfection!

The hotels were all very different but were all amazing in their own right and were in keeping with their location. He knew the types of hotels we prefer, and we were never disappointed with his amazing selection.

We have used Tony to book a number of holidays and would not go anywhere else - we cannot recommend him highly enough as his attention to detail, superb organisation, and total understanding of our dream holiday expectations have never failed to give us yet another holiday of a lifetime.

Sue Powney – June 2022

I've known Tony for several years having met him at a network meeting. It's great to deal with a big company but through an individual that you know and trust. This year we were planning to go on a cruise booked through Tony and my daughter had also booked to go to Jamaica. We've both been scuppered by the COVID19 situation, but Tony was quickly on the situation and we're all sorted to go next year at no financial loss. So not only do we have our own personal holiday guru/concierge but he always sorts us out a fantastic deal better than any high street shop. I can't recommend Travel Tony highly enough!

Andy Parsons - June 2020

Tony responded very promptly to our request for holiday suggestions earlier in the year and having just returned from his recommended holiday at Lake Garda I can confirm that he hit the brief 100%.

He found the perfect hotel and location which combined comfort, relaxation, sun, amazing scenery and great choice of characterful restaurants. Tony was attentive and maintained contact throughout the process leaving us in no doubt that support would be available in the event of any concerns. Needless to say there were none other than the fact we had to leave at the end of the holiday!

I would highly recommend him.
