A bit About Global River Cruising

Why we are different

At Global River Cruising we're passionate about river cruising. What better way to see the treasures of the natural and built environment than at the leisurely pace, on the calm waters of the world's greatest rivers. Add to it your boutique floating hotel, fantastic cuisine and like minded folk. We are hooked.

Unrivalled Service and Knowledge

The idea behind the business was to create a River Cruising specialist completely independent of any major supplier. Not many agents can say that these days. We have the ability to select your perfect cruise from the vast choice of operators out there and have spent the time researching our product inside out, so you don't have to. Can all agents say this?

I've worked for and created travel, creative and leisure businesses, big and small, I've created my River Cruise business so that I can bring together all the things I like about the travel industry, customer service and marketing and none of the things I don't. It's a fairly unique business - my husband, Simeon, is an IT expert, who used to work for an FTSE100 company and a general process guru - which feeds on the ideas and experiences of "the team" to ensure we're always one step ahead of the High Street.

I have been involved in the travel industry for well over 15 years. I even remember a time when there were more than two 'big' tour operators and there was no such thing as Easyjet or Ryanair! So, I've experienced a lot and am seriously well travelled, too.

Access to the Very Best Deals

Global River Cruising has teamed up with Fred Olsen Travel Ltd to enable us to offer excellent value and choice across the whole range of river cruise providers. This arrangement gives us access to the buying power of an enormous group but also allows us to retain our individuality, our sense of fun and our own interpretation of what makes for a great customer experience. It's the best of both worlds and everyone benefits because of it.

So, we're just another travel agent then, right? Wrong. We're much more than that. Unlike the vast majority of the High Street travel agencies, which are owned by the Thomson or Thomas Cook groups, we're completely independent and not restricted in what we sell. Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to do it we can help.

We have access to exclusive deals and contracts and will always look at options for you to give you the opportunity to get the very best deal, without lowering your standards. That's part of the Global River Cruising difference and we're proud of it.

Financial Security

Global River Cruising is proud to be a member of ABTA (membership no. P6713), and every flight inclusive package we sell is ATOL protected for your security. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) administered ATOL scheme is designed to take over arrangements and recover costs incurred in the event that an airline or tour operator ceases trading. More information on the ATOL scheme is available on the Civil Aviation Authority website www.atol.org.uk.
