Through our affiliations and the owning company Internova travel group, we have access to £20 billion buying power and a network of global travel experts to offer exceptional expertise and value, whether just booking a hotel for a weekend getaway or organising a family adventure holiday. Across the globe we operate as a tour operator and a personalised travel design company. We can open doors to meet the locals that epitomise their homeland, learn about destinations, really get under the skin of a culture, feel the heartbeat of the city and meet their storytellers.
That means we can organise a summer that’s not just sitting on the beach and a ski holiday that really does go “off-piste”. We create bespoke personally crafted journeys that can require a lot of planning and consultation to meet the client’s individual preferences. And by being a preferred partner with all major airlines and luxury hotel brands we are able to offer exceptional value. We are a new breed of travel companies. The greater the challenge the more fun we have in delivering to our clients.
Owner Director Michael Halsall cares about his clients and always goes that extra mile to ensure they receive the very best treatment and service. Through attending frequent industry trade events and training webinars with hotels and travel partners we are extremely well connected. We know people around the world (indeed we make it our business) and how to get the very best value for you and will go that extra mile to make your next trip special.

Emergency alerts and service in the event of global events that can affect your travel (from Covid-19 restrictions to delays, events and instances to the unforeseen). Should an issue arise related to a country you are scheduled to visit or whilst you are abroad, we have access to the latest travel technology which immediately alerts us. This enables us to contact you to pro-actively manage any necessary adjustments or changes to your itinerary to ensure minimum interruption and maximum safety.
We have no overheads like many larger companies. Rather we pay a transaction fee to our affiliation but this is never charged on to you. So we can beat the vast majorities of companies on price but we always prefer to go beyond this discussion and also offer exceptional value and service.
Michael Halsall says ” I set up Halsall Travel in 2018 because I simply wanted to share my passion for travel with my immediate friends and network and through hard work and despite a global pandemic I have grown it into a niche concierge travel company. I take great pleasure in hearing from clients who have come back from a trip and have appreciated all the small details that go into making a memorable journey. I have simply transferred all my service-orientated experience from working in luxury hotels and having lived and travel around the globe into my travel business. It’s a hugely competitive industry and I enjoy the challenge of constantly having to demonstrate value and passion in whatever we do. I am extremely lucky to have such a great affiliation with Colletts UK and the Global Travel Collection. We are one seamless team and without their support and logistics I simply couldn’t do what I do. Their global resources are best in class. ”
