ECT Travel – crafting unique journeys & remarkable holidays

The world is still out there to be discovered and we are looking forward to sharing it with you - with added reassurances that your safety is our top concern every step of the way.

We have been creating thought-provoking, experiential travel experiences for over twenty-five years and love to share our passion for, and expertise in, seeking out the secret gems and the less travelled roads hidden within each holiday destination. While travel has been on hold, we have missed the thrill of picking up our suitcases and setting off filled with excitement at the prospect of the energising new experiences ahead, but we have been busy seeking out new destinations and new experiences are we are ready to turn your travel dreams into reality.

Welcome Back - be the first to know!

Be first in line to book your place. Sign up for tours that interest you and we will give you 'first dibs' at securing your place ahead of the general booking opening. All you have to do is fill in the webform link on the relevant tour page, and we will send you an email with a link to book and pay your deposit. Don't miss out on a tour filling up!

Some things have changed, but we will always deliver a great service

Good news, we have a new booking system. As we are all so busy these days, we wanted to provide an enhanced service, making things easier and more convenient so you can access detailed information online and book at any time, day or night.

Coronavirus and Brexit have changed the way we travel. We are monitoring all the guidelines and updates very closely so that you can be confident that you are in safe hands. As a small and highly experienced tour operator, we take pride in getting to know our clients, working out all the small details and making sure we provide you with the highest level of service so that you can relax and enjoy a perfect holiday. We are on hand to answer your enquiries personally before you travel and, once you are away, our experienced Tour Managers are there to look after you. And, it goes without saying that we will always honour our obligations; where refunds are due we will continue to arrange these promptly.

Please sign up to our Newsletter to keep up to date with the latest news of the destinations that are opening-up, holidays you can book, our new safety measures and special travel offers. 
And if you have any specific questions please do get in touch; we are here for you.
