Local knowledge makes a world of difference
The greatest holidays take local know-how. Our handpicked local experts know your destination better than anyone because they live there. They organise unique and authentic trips specifically designed around your hopes and needs.

TravelLocal started life in 2008 as an idea shared by our founders, Tom and Huw. At the time, both were fully immersed in other areas of the travel industry and couldn’t help but feel that something was missing. Big tour operators were dominating the market and the local experts that planned the trips were treated as a “trade secret”. They started TravelLocal to change that.
Since 2012 we have scoured the globe to find travel experts from Argentina to Zanzibar and anywhere in between, enabling travellers to plan their holidays direct with the people who know their destination best. You get a better, more authentic holiday experience and our local experts get a fairer deal. For peace of mind, we are members of ABTA, ASTA and ATOL and your booking is 100% financially protected.
