About us

We make it safe and easy for you to create and book tailor-made holidays with carefully selected local travel companies around the world, online and securely on TravelLocal.com. If you want to get an amazing trip, which is 100% financially protected, put together by real local experts on the ground and which benefits local economies, then you’ve come to the right place!

Here are three reasons why booking with TravelLocal is a good idea:

  1. Financial protection for 100% of your booking

    We are members of ABTA, the largest UK travel association, and this means that all your money is protected by an insurance bond with them. In fact any money paid to us by any customer, travelling from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world is protected. You pay TravelLocal, a UK company, benefitting from this ABTA protection, and we pay the local company. So there’s no need for you to transfer money to far-flung destinations. In the unlikely event that either the local travel company or TravelLocal were to cease trading for any reason, you would get 100% of your money back.

  2. Create your holiday with proven, reliable travel experts

    We carefully select the local companies on our website. We want you to feel safe and to experience the real soul of your destination. Finding the right company to deliver that is hard work – for us, but no longer for you! Large, international tour companies or the travel agents where you live don’t have the most up-to-date knowledge about each destination. Yet if you do want to book directly there are many local travel companies in every destination to choose from - and no way of knowing which are the good ones. That’s where TravelLocal comes in. We do extensive research and due diligence to find local companies that have a proven track record of creating great tailor-made holidays for travellers like you.

  3. ‘Buy local’ - for a better, fairer deal all round

    We believe that what you pay for your holiday should financially benefit local people in your destination as much as possible, as well as it being an incredible experience for you. We work with expert travel companies - all locally owned and managed - in destinations around the world. When you book with TravelLocal, more of your money ends up in your destination compared to booking with international travel companies or a travel agent where you live.
