The importance of elsewhere...

When your desire to be ‘Elsewhere’  has never been stronger…

A holiday, there’s nothing quite like it. The feeling of excitement and anticipation when you have a trip to look forward to, the sense of wonder as you discover new cultures through the eyes of locals, the deep intake of breath as your eyes set upon scenery never before seen, the instant feeling of calm as you let go of your mental clutter.

Travel has the power to boost your health and wellbeing, fuelling personal growth and opening your mind to the world and the people in it. It’s enlightening, insightful,  character building and sometimes life changing. Holidays are a chance to reconnect with the people we love, an opportunity to step away from our everyday lives, to relax and recharge. It’s not simply about ticking off the ‘bucket list’ or recounting all of the countries you’ve visited, but how travel impacts you as a person, your interactions with others and how you see the rest of the world.

Let us introduce you to ‘The Importance of Elsewhere’ – a new collection of luxury holidays that, once lockdown is lifted, will transport you from the all too familiar.


Many of us have been patiently waiting for the opportunity to travel again. That’s why, when choosing our top destinations to travel to once the latest lockdown rules are lifted, we have taken the greatest care. We’ve rounded up some of the best remote islands in the Maldives where you can let your mind wander free, as well as departures from the everyday amidst vast expansive spaces in nature.

These are the perfect places to escape to elsewhere.


Coronavirus Update

As the situation with COVID-19 is still ever-changing, we continue to update our booking policy and flexibility promise to ensure arranging your escape to elsewhere is as seamless as possible.

Anticipation and excitement

A Carrier luxury holiday begins long before you step off the plane or book your ticket. It begins with that infinitesimal spark of intrigue, which, like an itch you can’t help but scratch, grows so wildly even well-seasoned travellers feel those butterflies of excitement as intrigue gives way to anticipation.

Releasing mental clutter

Your body has a physical reaction to the first day of a holiday: your shoulders slacken; brow unfurrows; a breath you didn’t realise you were holding, slips free in the most satisfying of exhales; and, finally, the mental clutter you’ve been absentmindedly hoarding falls away, leaving room only to enjoy the present.

New cultures, new people

In a year where our worlds have been condensed into our homes and most interactions conducted through screens, discovering new corners of the globe has adopted a different kind of significance; experiencing a new culture and community rich in heritage, while making real-life, tangible memories with those you love is more important now than ever.

Flexibility designed around you

We have always offered complete customisation and this includes flexibility with our terms and conditions. While bookings come with the necessary legal small print, in practice we don’t hold clients to standard terms and conditions; offering flexibility with deposits and balance payments or due dates. Financially protecting our clients is a priority, and wherever possible we allow you to amend or cancel free of charge based on an agreed balance due date. Each booking is unique and bespoke and we offer a one-to-one personal service, tailoring terms and conditions to suit the individual wherever we can.

Private journeys

As airports and airlines are sharing the steps they are taking to make fliers feel comfortable again, Carrier already facilitate more private pathways to get clients to where they need to be. From private jets, security fast-track and private check-in, to your very own departure lounge and the option to board first or last, we work closely with exclusive airport service providers around the globe to enhance your safety and minimise your journey time.  While the added privacy and roomier spaces of flying business or first class provides reassurance to those wishing to keep a safe distance from others.
