Our independent & objective advice is based on our own experience, which we are waiting to share with you. We are well known for our tailor-made itineraries, individual & corporate groups, ski week ends, multi-centre holidays and cruises.

We also deal in hotels, private chalets and luxury apartments on both sides of the Atlantic for those who demand more flexibility.

I would like to say a massive thank you to Leoni at Born 2 Travel for helping me find and book somewhere for my wife's 30th. Nothing was too much trouble and she was able to recommend options I hadn't previous considered. We had an absolutely fabulous time and part of that was due to having no stress around anything Leoni had booked for us. Thank you again for sorting such a wonderful holiday for such a special occasion. Will definitely be booking through Leoni again. Ryan Jackson
I would highly recommend Born 2 Travel to book holidays certainly takes the hard work out of looking for something. Top class service from Born 2 Travel, Would defiantly use them again. Karen W
We had the most amazing experience going to see Santa, would highly recommend anyone to go and born 2 travel made it so enjoyable and gave me all the information we needed for this truly amazing trip! Katrina
I can't recommend Leoni at Born 2 travel enough. she was super patient with us from the beginning. searched holidays until she found one we loved. she sent us reminders to book insurance and to check in and even when to pack!! the holiday was absolutely amazing and couldn't have been improved in any way, well maybe if we'd had longer.... upon our return Leoni made contact to see how our holiday had been and our response is that we want her to book us another. Charlotte K
Wow! What can we say… Leoni has pulled this one out of bag & we love it! She worked hard to find us the perfect New Year holiday & has certainly done us proud, hotel is absolutely amazing & the resort the most beautiful place we have visited. We will definitely be back. Thank you Leoni @borntotravel @Barcelo Corralejo Bay. Caroline
Club Med, Seychelles is a great place with great staff in a magnificent setting. On arrival at the jetty, we were greeted by a delightful Club Med rep and hopped on golf buggies to take us to our champagne reception and be issued with room keys that were in fact attached to a fashionable bracelet that doubled up as the all-inclusive wrist band. Our room was a superior with sea view and was perfect for us. Buffet dining is on a 7 day rota but regardless of the theme change there is something for everyone and it is first class. Martin Holmes
Just wanted to thank Leoni for all her help arranging our recent holiday to Paphos. She was incredibly kind, patient and helpful , we booked just a few weeks before we travelled but Leoni managed to find exactly the sort of holiday we love. We stayed at the Hotel Avanti Village and we will definitely go back there . The staff were amazing, kind ,very friendly, we even managed to keep our room until early evening on our last day. The hotel is in a good location with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby, there is a lovely walk (about 20 minutes) along the promenade past some beautiful hotels which takes you to the harbour, where there are loads of bars, shops and restaurants all with a spectacular view. Leoni was amazing , she thought of everything , even booked us into the lounge at the airport for the return flight- which was a brilliant idea !!! We will definitely be booking through born2travel again . Thank you again Leoni xxx Jan & Richard Brown
Mike, at Born2Ski & Travel , has been giving us exemplary service for the past 20 years. I arrange the ski holiday for 50, senior skiers.... not a straightforward task, and having his wealth of knowledge, makes it easier. Knowing that there is a person at the end of the phone, and not an automated voice, when you call, makes planning your holiday a pleasant experience. Born2Travel will turn your travel dreams into reality - all plain sailing, or skiing. Kate C
Hi Mike Just want to say Thank you for organising a fantastic holiday. Everything went smoothly. The accommodation was great near to the slopes as well as having the advantage to be able to walk into town. Ski hire shop was really helpful and friendly and allowed us to swap equipment without any problem, and the transfers were on time and very knowledgeable. The skiing was great, the majority of the time there was only our party on the runs which was fantastic. So once again many thanks. Linsey Henderson
Mike is a true professional - he really knows his onions. A great time was had by all with all the stress of organising taken away. Thank you for a well organised, smooth and generally fab holiday! Diana Darbyshire
