The Riviera Travel Difference



Our Price Promise

We guarantee there are never any hidden charges or fees to be added later, so the cost will never increase no matter what happens after you book. We don’t automatically include gratuities like other companies, so the choice is entirely yours. And what’s more, if we reduce the price and you’ve already booked, we’ll reduce your price too – what could be fairer than that?


Our Brexit Reassurance

With the UK’s withdrawal from the EU now looking like being delayed until at least 31st October, there’s no need to let any uncertainties ruin your holiday plans. The Government has confirmed that there will be no disruption to flights, and travellers will not need a visa, however we have created a brief guide to help answer some questions you may have.

Meticulously crafted itineraries

Every itinerary has been thoughtfully crafted by our experts and provides fascinating perspectives on the culture, history, gastronomy, art and architecture of the places we visit. And much like a well-told story, every detail is carefully considered, from the stops we make to the routes we take. We ensure there’s free time, so you can continue exploring at your own pace.


The best tour managers & guides

Ancient ruins, historic towns and unfamiliar landscapes all come to life in the company of our local guides and tour managers. Our specialists were chosen not only for their wealth of knowledge, but also their flair for engaging audiences and sharing eye-opening insights. It’s like travelling with a friend who happens to know the secrets of every destination.

Our unique style

Perhaps our most distinguishing feature is the care we show our customers. We’re a friendly team who are passionate about travel and genuinely care about making your holiday the best it can be. We make every effort to get to know you by name and your preferences by heart. We listen and take on board your feedback for future improvements. And if anything does go wrong, we promise to put it right. After all, we would love you to come back again – as most of our customers do.


Personalised experiences

Our experts have gone to great lengths to curate each holiday, so you enjoy the very best of your chosen destination. To enhance your experience, we offer hand-picked highlights which you may wish to add to your holiday. And to make your holiday extra special, we offer upgrades and extensions as well.


Stays with a special touch

Our carefully chosen accommodation is primarily rated four stars and is well-located. We tend to work with privately owned hotels that offer something special, be it a rooftop bar with panoramic views or a delightful position close to the old town centre,


Your comfort is assured

Enjoy scheduled flights from a choice of airports across the UK or Eurostar travel with regional rail connections to London on selected tours within Europe. You have the option to upgrade to economy or business class on many long-haul flights. On arrival we continue by comfortable, air-conditioned coaches. On longer journeys, internal flights or train travel are included to make the most of our time.
