Just wanted to say that Zoe and I had a wonderful holiday in Canada. The Rocky Mountaineer was sensational and the drive from Jasper to Lake Louise was spectacular. the hotels were excellent. Thanks for organising the trip.

We had a great time! Thank you for arranging such a perfect trip and the hotels in Prague, Helsinki and Hong Kong were excellent and best locations. Loved the Cordis! As always everything went smoothly.

Thank you again for making our holidays wonderful!

Well done Stuart! I recommend you and Destination HQ to all my friends when they ask who my travel agent is because you have been absolutely fantastic for us.  You have broadened our horizons so we have had some amazing experiences.

Hi Stuart,

we got back from the big trip on Wednesday.  We had a wonderful time. The program you provided went perfectly…no  hiccups at all. We can’t thank you enough. Accommodation was spot on, best beds we have slept on.  Viking Sky was stunning, Malta was beautiful, and Dubai was out of this world.

Hi Stuart,

A short note to express our appreciation for the travel itinerary you put together for our recent European holiday.

We had a great time and it all went perfectly according to plan

Cheers Ian & Joy

Hi Stuart,
Just checked in to the Handlery Union Square Hotel and are wondering what you have done to us!!
We were greeted at the front desk by your mate, Jon Handlery, President of the hotel. He personally welcomed us and said you had contacted him. He assured us of a good room and said he had arranged for a late check out of 4 pm.
When we got to the room we were surprised to find we had the best room we have had on the trip.
Thank you very much. We are a bit over-whelmed!
Also thank you for the excellent choice of airline and seat selection for trip from Newark.
We have had a great trip and looking forward to getting home and having a chat.
Thanks again,
Geoff and Margaret

Thanks Kirsty,

I always said that you were the best travel agent in the world! Thank you so much – you’re wonderful!!

Thank you for everything you do for us.  See you soon xx



A big thank you to Kate Traynor for arranging our dream holiday. We originally planned our trip with Kate over 12 months ago and we found her to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We were due to leave shortly but due to some unforseen complications we were unable to travel to the destinations we had chosen and we were understandably devastated and at a loss. We contacted Kate immediately and she was so empathetic and even made a house call to us that night with some alternative destinations for us to consider. In a matter of 7 days Kate was able to arrange another dream holiday for us and also assisted us to get as many refunds as possible when our Insurance company washed their hands of us. We didn’t think it was possible but we are now even happier with our new travel plans and cannot thank Kate enough. If you are looking for someone who goes the extra mile, Kate Traynor of Destination HQ  is your girl. We wouldn’t go anywhere else! Many thanks Kate!

 Dear Stuart, 

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Well done on your award! We are so proud of you and so happy for you, very well deserved! You are the BEST!

Huge Congratulations for your wonderful win last night at the National Awards…Stuart

Best Retail Manager !!

Brilliant news that you and your Team has been so celebrated and recognized by our Industry.

Well deserved and thrilled for you.

Hi Stuart,

Thanks so much for all you help with getting the flights sorted.  The price was significantly less than what I had originally seen so it was a great help.

Hi Stuart

I  just wanted to let u know that out time in Positano has been amazing- the Eden Roc Hotel is wonderful – we have had a fantastic holiday and can’t wait to organise the next.

You have excelled again! We had a great trip around France and Ireland combined with the stopover in Abu Dhabi. All went according to plan, we saw so much and consumed the requisite amount of food and beverages. We all kept well and it went without a hitch, many thanks to your organisation.
No doubt the girls will be at your door again soon to arrange the next holiday.

Hey Stuart,

In 2004, I knew that you were the best when you tracked me down in BKK after the Tsunami to see if I was ok. I’m glad all the others are also able to experience good service from a supreme professional. Keep up the good work.


We went to Africa on a holiday designed by Destination HQ. This was one of THE Most Memorable holidays ever. Guides, animals, people, scenery, accommodation. Everything – was absolutely wonderful.
Thanks Stuart and Team for arranging/designing our holiday, just as we wanted.

“The Staff at Destination HQ were able to translate our dream holiday into reality. They were very informative and provided us with multiple options and advice that helped us make our decision. We look forward to booking our next adventure through Destination HQ”

Hi Stuart ,

Congratulations on your award , good on you , I know how hard you work in what I’m thinking is a very tough market . As far as I am concerned it is the personal professional service which you provide which is the reason we come back and why I am happy to refer you to friends .


Thank you Stuart! Thank you very much for all the hard work you put in for Sam and me we had the most amazing time, we loved every minute of it.
The Intrepid tour of Morocco was fantastic and we were lucky enough to be with a wonderful group of people. Morocco was quite something and it was a great change from the European cities we visited.

Anyway, I just want to thank you and your team for all you work and help!

I would like to pass on my feedback in relation to the service we have received from Reece.

As you can imagine, with technology being what it is, my partner and I genuinely considered booking our trip ourselves, and not going through an agent. We had been underwhelmed in the past, and were not convinced of the value an agent would bring to the process. I am incredibly pleased that we didn’t do that, and instead were recommended Reece by a friend of ours.

Initially we only intended to get some quotes from Reece, however his responsiveness, understanding and helpfulness, meant that we have in fact booked everything with him. We have greatly appreciated his advice and assistance, and most importantly, the fact that he has made the whole process so easy and simple. A quick exchange of emails and we are all booked and sorted.

It’s due to service like that, that we will be using Reece to book our future travel and won’t worry about doing it ourselves.

Many thanks



The trip has been fantastic – just got back from the Boston Pops rehearsal for 4th of July – awesome. Hotel is unbelievable – as was Quebec and Montreal.  Nova Scotia and PEI were awesome as well.

Thank you so much – you’ve done a great job with all the arrangements and organisation. We couldn’t have had a better trip.

Cheers and thanks,

Steve & Jacqui

Hi Stuart

Hi Kirilly,

Our trip has been fantastic, and we wanted to thank you for organizing everything so well for us.

All our train trips have been such fun and so easy, and the Swiss Rail Holiday was fantastic …can’t recommend it highly enough. The trains, the hotels and all the excursions were so good, and we were blessed with perfect weather!!

After simply the best few days in Venice, we had our last train trips to Sienna today, tomorrow we catch up with dear friends who used to live in Beaumaris when our children were little….very special.

Thanks again for your invaluable help , Kirilly, we really appreciate it. See you when we return.

Wendy and Rod.

Dear Jess,

Thank you for organising such a wonderful itinerary for my somewhat complicated two month  holiday, which involved flights to and from Australia and across Europe, train travel in Europe and the UK, the booking of hotels, pick ups from airports and day tours in several countries.  Thanks to your meticulous planning and excellent recommendations there was not one glitch, everything worked perfectly.  All the hotels were in wonderful locations and each was a pleasure to stay in.  Some exceeded my expectations.  I look forward to working with you to arrange another glorious holiday in the future.

Kind regards

We had a great trip appreciate all the work you put into it. Our highlight would have to be Croatia, our sailing trip was amazing all the people on it were great and it’s so beautiful there and great to have some down time. The food everywhere was amazing, as I’m sure you know!

Hope you’re doing well, I have also passed your details onto someone trying to sort out there Europe trip so hopefully they contact you soon!

Thanks again,
