You'll always have a contact number from our capable partners overseas. Should you need anything while travelling, we'll informed by our partners and we can be part of the conversation. We will also get your feedback after your return - we would also love to see your photos.

Why we exist as a company

A word from the founder

Travelling is in our DNA – during 99% of human history, we have been nomads. Travelling breaks through the imaginary barriers we often put up ourselves. However, organising the perfect trip is still a challenge because there are real logistical barriers to deal with and the wealth of information readily available is often not reliable. I have travelled for over 20 years and currently I spend a lot of my time travelling while working full time as a Travel Designer. I draw my inspiration from the destinations we bring to you – Paris to New York, from Ho Chi Minh City to Rio de Janeiro. This keeps my knowledge fresh and up to date. My team and I work full time around different time zones, overlapping and covering most of each day, which gives us flexibility to attend your enquiries around the clock with dedication; no call centers, no queues, you can even Whatsapp or text me directly – impossible to beat that personalised on-demand attention. My entire team at Travelisto and I believe and practice this ethos – that’s how we are truly different.

Our values

Always in the know: we visit each destination more often than any
other travel company

We believe that to offer great customer service, our Travel Designers must have a great life-work balance and spend as much of their time on the destinations we promote. Most mainstream travel agents may only travel on one familiarisation trip per year, one week if lucky. Our Travel Designers are often travelling themselves while working while testing the hotels and activities we sell, which gives the first-hand knowledge in new destinations or constantly refresh their knowledge. We will even tell you where we had dinner, or how to beat the crowds, because we have been there recently - we may even there right now!

We look after you so you can keep stress free - we
work our hours around you!

We offer five-star service to each of our customers, building rapport and ensuring that no two trips are the same. We’re passionate about detail and service. Also, the reassurance that your money is safe by our financial protection fund. Before, during and after, you can reach your personal Travel Designers in whatever way is easiest for you: phone, Whatsapp, text, email, video-conference, screen-sharing to show you photos or explain your travel documents, plus we will arrange for a visit to our co-working offices in London or New York, your home or anywhere! That is really putting you first and looking after you - around the clock!
