This includes after you book. We don’t hide, in fact, we love to hear from our customers and make it easy to get in touch. You can’t say that about many companies these days. Bear in mind too, that we are a company that guarantees a refund if your holiday is cancelled due to government advice. Not many travel companies can say this, just search it up online to read the stories. We are ABTA & ATOL bonded & regulated, which means that we are financially safe and governed by a body. This is be becoming a rarity too, as other travel companies are leaving ABTA, seemingly so they can ignore their responsibilities. Again, search it up if you want to read more. So… what are you waiting for? We are the perfect travel company to book with! Get in touch and let us take care of everything for you.

Should I book a package holiday? Booking your holiday as a package (flights and hotel together, at the same time, with the same company) does give you added protection by law so that is our preferred method of booking your holiday. If you do prefer to source the flights yourself then we are happy to provide the amazing rates, upgrades and offers that we get for the hotels we deal with. If you do need to make any amendments to your hotel booking due to your flights changing, then we will always do our best to accommodate your needs and this can usually be done with the minimum of fuss. It will just be subject to room availability and any new costs (eg new dates may be more expensive, it may be cheaper). Our experts are always on hand to help guide you with advice and do all the work for you behind the scenes.

With its tropical gardens, ocean-view pools and lavish dinner dances, Belmond Reid’s Palace has always attracted Madeira’s most elite.

Belmond Reid’s Palace has been Madeira’s number one hotel for over a century, Churchill even wrote his war memoirs here. And it’s still just as impressive as ever, with its cliff-top setting, grand colonial architecture and ocean views.

Two big pools and one tidal pool by the sea take pride of place among the tropical gardens and you’ll find tennis courts out here, too. As for food, expect everything from a generous afternoon tea to moonlit meals.

Two of the pools are set in sunny terraces with sunbeds to stretch out on and parasols. One of them is filled with sea water and heated to 30ºc. The other pool is at sea level with a lift to the bathing jetty and direct sea access.

Enjoy live entertainment every night at the cocktail bar. Every Tuesday the manager puts on a party and mingles with the guests. Snacks are offered between 10am and 6pm.

You can find just about everything you need to feel top-to-toe pampered at this spa. From the little things like eyebrow waxing to full day programmes with massages and body wraps. Even children are catered for with their own mini-treatments which can be done while parents enjoy some down time in the double treatment suite. There’s an indoor pool too with saunas and steam rooms for you to unwind and relax.
