Adelanta Travel Services Limited was founded in 1989 to provide customized travel programmes in Britain and Europe. Our clients are primarily overseas travel agents and tour operators who wish to provide a tailor-made service to their customers. Adelanta meets the need for unusual, special-interest and off-the-tourist track itineraries. Each tour that we design and operate is specifically created for a particular party; we work both with groups and individuals or small family groups with very specific requirements which often cannot be met by a standard, 'picked from a brochure' tour.
Adelanta is an IATA-registered wholesaler to the travel industry. We do not operate scheduled tours. We will discuss with you the type of programme that your group is looking for and will then put together a customized itinerary which can be presented to your group for their own personalization before a tour is finalized. We regret that we do not sell places on our tours. All programmes are customized to meet the needs of specific, pre-formed groups.
Adelanta has a highly professional team of Local Guides and Tour Managers based all over Europe. These wonderful individuals are all licensed as guides and group leaders in their home territory, and their local expertise and personal charm are essential to the success of our programmes. Many of the groups which travel with us on a regular basis have a close relationship with a particular guide, and often schedule their tour around when 'their' guide is available.
Adelanta works with a variety of hotels throughout Britain and Europe. To cope with the different requirements of our travellers, these hotels range from 3-star standard to 5-star Deluxe; but they all have certain things in common; a great location, professional staff, and a warm welcome to guests. Adelanta's philosophy is that location is crucial; and our staff have the expertise to know personally the hotels to which we send our clients. Every hotel looks great in its own brochure; we know the true story, and we can direct our clients to the 'hidden gems' instead of the places which just look great on the outside.
Pricing We deal with groups of all standards, from student groups on a very limited budget through to the deluxe type of programme, and everything in between. Although we rarely operate two identical tours, we have volume discounts in many hotels in major British and European cities and are able to pass these special prices on to our clients.
Please contact us for a costing for your British and European groups. We make no charge to provide you with creative ideas for some wonderful itineraries, and would welcome the opportunity to show you what we can do.
Please note: We do not handle air transportation, but will take care of your party or group from the moment it arrives anywhere in Western Europe.
Security When you deal with Adelanta Travel Services your money is protected under the EU Package Travel directive. Our clients' funds are kept in a special Customer Deposit (Escrow) Account until after the group has travelled.
Our emphasis is always on quality; we do not claim to be the cheapest, but prefer to offer excellent value for money for those groups and individuals wanting that 'extra something' and a memorably wonderful tour. We include all sightseeing tours in our quotations. There are no hidden extra charges.
Our repeat business is over 90% !
