I have been to lots of places in my life, and have a list ten times that of places I want to go. The more I work in travel, the more places get added to that list. But never Dubai. For some, Dubai is the cognoscenti's James Blunt. The place you feel clever not to like. Shallow, fake, geared…
Two of the biggest events in a person's life are getting married and having a baby. While most people spend weeks (okay, months) planning their honeymoon, the same cannot be said of the babymoon. I'm sure a few of you reading this are thinking, what even is a babymoon? Although relatively…
Let's be honest, it's been something of an annus horribilis for Africa. Kenya, Mali and Algeria (and others) face ongoing security concerns and the Ebola virus has dominated headlines, while the Oscar Pistorius trial became another negative media circus, all making 2014 a year Africa would…
Bold statement, I know (and I may be slightly biased, being Original Travel's resident New Zealand expert and all), but New Zealand is the ultimate luxury holiday destination. Firstly, it's home to scenery that truly has to be seen to be believed. Yes, the photos look incredible but even…

There are so many things to consider throughout the holiday booking process (destination, time of year, hotel, the list is endless), but one thing you might not have thought about is exchange rate fluctuation. It may seem like a dry topic but you could save yourself a small fortune by…
A holiday in Australia will never be a quick trip for us Brits, with its 24 hour journey time, but it is certainly a country I would recommend pencilling in on your bucket list. I have just returned from a two week trip to this amazing country and, although I would recommend spending a…
News has reached us of a mid-air punch up aboard a United Airlines flight that resulted in the flight being diverted and both passengers being unceremoniously removed from the aircraft. The reason for the air rage? That particularly thorny issue of airtiquette - the seat recline.
The spectacular combination of clear waters, pure white sands, and a plethora of swanky luxury hotels has made the Maldives one of the most desirable destinations for those wanting to pamper themselves on holiday. Being home to some of the world's most impressive luxury hotels means the task…
If you've not managed to get away this summer and you're tiring of sun-kissed colleagues and friends, September and October are perfect months to soak up some late summer sun. Whether you want to jet off to somewhere in Europe for a long weekend or fly and flop further afield, we can arrange…
