Passion for Caribbean luxury holidays runs like blood through the veins of the Inspiring Travel Company. For us, it’s personal as well as professional, from founder June Foster who hails from Barbados, through to CEO Jennifer Atkinson who holidays in Barbados annually to Director Judie Hinkson who is married to a St Lucian. Many long-serving staff are also in thrall to the destination: Caribbean Product Manager Helen Tabois will wax lyrical about the natural beauty of the British Virgin Islands and Travel Specialists Julia Whittington, Sue Brooks, Jo Robinson and Sharon Williams (to name just a few) all have their personal favourites and secret insights that they’d love to share with you.
Our 40 year love affair with the Caribbean has created a wealth of knowledge and experience for you to call upon in creating your idyllic Caribbean holiday. Many members of our team throughout all areas of the business have worked with luxury Caribbean hotels and airlines much of their working lives and have built strong relationships with key personnel, relationships that are used to enhance your holiday with the Inspiring Travel Company. In particular our Travel Specialists have extensive personal experience of the Caribbean, so look out for their insight throughout the brochure and of course, do call them to discuss your ideas and let them advise you on your destination and resort choice.
Our people are at the heart of what we do and, most importantly, what we can do for you. That belief extends to the islands of Barbados and Antigua where we employ dedicated Destination Managers, Kerin Austin and Kathy Arthurton, both of whom have been looking after our clients for nearly 20 years and whose contacts on their respective islands are legendary! And of course if you’re in Barbados, feel free to drop in and see Kerin at our office in the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, Holetown.
Whether you’re already in the midst of your own ‘love affair’ with the Caribbean or it’s your first time travelling to her fabled and bewitching shores, you can be certain that the Inspiring Travel Company will put just as much passion into creating your luxury Caribbean holiday as you will. It’s not just what we do, it’s who we are.
Any holiday to the Caribbean speaks of luxury and that’s what you’ll always receive from the Inspiring Travel Company: whether luxury to you means gourmet cuisine and butler service, a deserted beach where you can feel the sand between your toes and nobody puts on airs and graces, or perhaps it’s simply that your time is precious and you want us to put everything together for you before, during and after your holiday so that you don’t have to. Whatever your personal definition of luxury, there’s something in our programme to suit all tastes and we recognise that value for money is often the starting point.
With that in mind, we couldn’t offer you The Complete Caribbean without featuring a selection of hotels that offer fantastic all-inclusive value or those whose attraction is in their rustic outlook. Nor could we pass up the opportunity to introduce you to some of the beautiful Caribbean islands along the ‘road less travelled’ such as Dominica and Trinidad & Tobago. We recommend that you consult with our Travel Specialists to benefit from their knowledge and experience but as a quick reference guide within this expanded brochure, we’ve signposted certain resorts that you might not have considered before, ‘Our Extended Luxury Caribbean Portfolio’; just look out for the indication and call us to discover more. We’re proud to be based in two of the UK’s most attractive locations, Chester and Harrogate, and you can call either of the geographical numbers within the brochure pages with complete confidence that you’ll receive specialist insight about the Caribbean.
