We are market leaders - we are Eurostar’s largest direct sell operator and one of the largest overall to our main destinations of Paris,Brussels and Bruges.

We are knowledgeable and helpful - all our properties in Paris, Brussels, Bruges, Lille, Antwerp and Ghent have been individually inspected for quality, value and location. All hotels are visited by our contact centre staff on a regular basis so the person on the end of the phone actually knows your hotel first hand.

We are the best value - our close relationship with Eurostar and our relationship with our hotel in Paris, Brussels, Bruges and Lille enable us to negotiate rates unavailable to the public or to high street travel agents. Our prices are unbeatable with five star weekend breaks from £129 per person for two nights including breakfast and return Eurostar travel. Midweek getaways start at just £99per person

We are award winning - our carefully chosen hotel product has been recognised as the best in the industry. We have been awarded ‘Best Newcomer’ in the Eurostar Travel Awards 1999, followed by ‘Best Direct Sell Tour Operator’ and an ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ the following year. More recently, in January 2005, we have been recognised as ‘Favourite European Short Break Operator’ by the Evening Standard / Travel Weekly Consumer Travel Awards and voted Best Eurostar Branded Website at the Eurostar Sales Awards in October 2005.
