Collaboration

Behold a collection that brings key luxury brands together to co-create unique experiences for affluent travellers who dream of an escape this year. We aim to bring you exclusive first access to bespoke, handcrafted trips created to make luxury travel possible for the coming months. We’ve partnered with those who are leading the way to deliver high standards of care, uncompromised experience and with true consideration for our clients; together we bring the unattainable, unavailable and unexpected.

Curation

Basic luxury is out, bespoke luxury is in. You’ll want to look beyond simply a five star hotel and first class flights; curation comes with the simplest of detail such as reducing wasted time queuing in airports to securing exclusive use of a highly sought-after hideaway – planning your precious leisure time to perfection is our greatest delight and it’s the skills of our curators that turn a trip from mediocre to down-right marvellous. A bespoke approach is a prerequisite for travelling better in a new world – when it’s more personal, it’s more pleasurable.

Care

From health-enhancing experiences to spirit-lifting escapes for quality time with your nearest and dearest, our holidays have been curated with the diligence and attention to detail required when it comes to your care. We aim to minimise your time in queues and crowds, travelling with privacy, space, security and exclusivity. Uncover the safest destinations with no entry restrictions or quarantine requirements and accommodations leading the way in new initiatives for travellers who may be more cautious.

Why Carrier / Book with confidence

It's about how we make you feel

As you re-enter the world, it’s people who will make the real difference. We want you to feel special, to bring joy to the conversations we might have. You won’t find us distracted handling multiple chats at once or in a rush to move on to the next booking – perfection cannot be hurried and we give you our undivided attention.

We want you to feel secure, safe in the knowledge that your health and well-being has been carefully considered and taken care of. We are open, honest, transparent and empathetic; above all, we bring the most important and valuable element to your experience – the human touch. A dedicated, personal travel expert, will own and manage your holiday from initial enquiry through to you returning home.

Whatever your journey; to feel more calm and relaxed, to cement closer bonds with loved ones you’ve missed, to pen up your mind to new cultures, to challenge yourself or have a hands-on positive impact on the planet and communities you visit – our belief is your time should be spent on the right experiences and our purpose is to design your days away to feel richer and happier.

Making travel less complex in a more complex world

For those who are itching to escape as soon as possible, there are limitations on where you can go, an avalanche of information and new guidelines, and not enough time to research the mind boggling number of variations. What’s more, with talk of electrostatic sprayers, ultraviolet light technology and touch-less check-ins at hotels; to social distancing, temperature checks and compulsory face coverings in airports, there’ll undoubtedly be a change in the way we think, act and venture back into the wider world. 

We are well-versed in planning trips with multiple, moving parts; facilitating demands of privacy and exclusivity, as well as the behind-the-scenes legwork to co-ordinate a smooth end-to-end experience. In this new climate, our insight and expertise, creativity and imagination, accompanied by our close network of facilitators and connectors will open up your mind to awe-inspiring possibilities and ensure you travel better.

For when you just can't wait

When travel restrictions lift creating a window of opportunity, or you suddenly find a gap in your diary, last minute time away often means you haven’t had a moment to plan where to spend it. Luckily for you, at Carrier impulse escapes are our forte, leaving you free of all the research and planning responsibilities. Spontaneity doesn’t mean forgoing the things most important to you or compromising on an incredible experience. Whether you’re thinking to leave in seven days or seven hours, with us it’s not about finding a reduced deal and accepting what’s left; we’ll facilitate the same extraordinary opportunities and bespoke service that some can only pull off with months of preparation.

 

If you do turn to Google, don’t be disheartened with an endless lack of availability, deals for flights with unsociable travel times and rooms that others had rejected; booking last minute doesn’t have to mean missing out on the very best suites and seats on the plane. We don’t solely rely on technology for availability because we have something better: leveraging our intimate relationships and connections to negotiate on your behalf. We use our skills and mastery to navigate complicated airline systems and speak one-on-one with our suppliers, often securing hotel rooms and suites where others can’t. And if availability is an issue we’re determined to be creative and resourceful in finding you a surprising alternative.

Whether you’re in pursuit of a few days R&R, we’ll find you the space and place where it’s ridiculously easy to escape the digital world and let go of your mental clutter, or maybe you need those all-important interconnecting rooms for all the family and yes of course you want them guaranteed. Everything, down to the tiniest detail, will be taken care of by us, with the expertise to bring it all together and make your impromptu sojourn one that it is more than worthwhile.

For any concerns about travelling during COVID-19, we’ll do everything in our power to reassure you. Count on us to decipher the changing updates and understand what that means for you; we’ll use our inside knowledge to advise on which countries are safest to travel to and their entry requirements or quarantine restrictions, meaning all you need to do is focus on getting that suitcase packed. You can also rest assured knowing that if Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office advice changes at short notice before you depart, you can still cancel with a full refund. Or if UK quarantine restrictions are imposed while you’re away, we’re on hand to facilitate a speedy return home should you require it.

So what are you waiting for? Embrace your spontaneous side and put on that out of office.

A good chat can mean the world / Working with Re-engage

As a human business, with people who thrive off conversation and who have inspirational stories to tell about the world, we’ve partnered with Re-engage, where some of Carrier’s furloughed team members are volunteering as call companions and reaching out to the isolated and lonely. We’ll be making a donation to the charity for every booking from our ‘Blue skies ahead’ collection to help bring companionship to the elderly through this crisis...
