• How We Customise Your Holiday

     

    TAILORS OF HOLIDAYS

    There is nothing quite like dressing in bespoke. The comfort that comes from a perfect fit and the quiet confidence you gain from knowing that there is nobody in the room better dressed. At Quotient TravelPlanner, we think of ourselves as tailors of holidays – patterns are like your holiday theme, buttons represent the pace of your trip, while flowing or racy hemlines reflect the style and sensuality of your vacation.

     

    DETAILED CONSULTATION

    As with a tailor, the process starts with a detailed consultation with one of our travel consultants. Each possesses specific knowledge on different parts of the world and various styles of travel. Collectively, we cover most of the world from luxury travel to adventure travel. In creating bespoke itineraries, consultants work together to come up with ideas and perspectives that will appeal to the particular client. This could be through creating convenience for specific needs clients such as vegans and elderly travellers, or simply creating a wow factor.

     

    GETTING TO KNOW YOU

    The consultation will yield information such as countries you have covered or would like to visit again in greater depth, interests and dislikes perhaps a fascination with Mahler or a distaste in Miro, gourmet food of any kind or absolutely no history lessons about this or that castle, temperature preferences, whether you prefer staying in vast neo-classical palace hotels or funky boutiques, dietary or mobility requirements, special skills such as shooting, riding or skiing.

     

    EXPERT TRAVEL ADVICE

    We make suggestions to create a seamless holiday. If there are political problems brewing in Naples, we advise you stay north of Rome instead. If you prefer to shop than sightsee in Paris, we help you prioritise your time and destinations. If you like the idea of safari, but think South Africa is too clichéd, we can suggest alternative luxurious and safe safaris. And if you would like a truly exclusive experience, we will be happy to suggest it and arrange it. Whether it is filming your own music video in the Beijing Summer Palace, sailing with friends on a superyacht to the Billionaire Club, we will be happy to oblige.

     

    MANAGING YOUR EXPECTATIONS AND BUDGETS

    Our clients range from primary school teachers on a honeymoon to industrialists on a family sabbatical, with all of our tailor-made holidays benefitting from equal attention. We discover your expectations for your custom holiday while managing your budget to fully maximise your money.. Expect personalised attention for everything from transport to guides, waking up late is always an option and there is no waiting around for others to turn up. Our Travel Pack, issued to every travelling group, features dining guides with average prices indicated so that you can manage your spending as well.

     

    USING YOUR FREQUENT FLYER OR HOTEL MEMBERSHIPS

    We also add travel components to what you already have. You may have a frequent flier programme that we can route your flights to suit, a villa in Tuscany that we can include as part of a holiday, a timeshare or corporate hotel discount anywhere in the world, or an extension to a business trip. We can fly the rest of your family to join you and ensure that a reliable and safe chauffeur brings them to your door.

     

    FULL RANGE OF TRAVEL SERVICES

    Just as in a good suit, there are invisible elements between the layers to create the perfect fit. Because we are a bespoke travel agency, we will route your flights to suit your frequent flier programme or land you at the location closest to your destination which may not be in the same country. We manage this with the range of cars and train lines available to the airport, cost effective flights, and transport links out of the airport which are not jammed. If your family doesn’t travel light, we select estate cars or 4x4s which we know have the luggage capacity to cope with the loads. Hotels are chosen for their value for money, design suitability to your liking, attention to maintenance, proximity to transport links, attractions and amenities, parking availability, air conditioning and even the quality of breakfast.

     

    EVERY HOLIDAY IS DIFFERENT, DESIGNED TO SUIT YOUR STYLE

    Your personalised holiday is planned to maximise the sights and experiences you want, in the style you want. This usually means that every holiday we have ever customised has been different. We take on a educating role to introduce new ideas and lifestyles to our travellers at every opportunity, but we try to be sensitive about limits. We won’t send vegans to a pig farm producing the finest corn fed pork, but we do try to convince French wine devotees to try a Barolo, and dyed-in-the-rayon metropolites to try a taste of luxury country life for a day or two. The possibilities for your tailor-made holiday are only limited by your imagination!

     

    ... AND EVERYTHING IS BOOKED FOR YOUR TRIP!

  • Helen & family in Japan — January 2019

    We have enjoyed our holiday tremendously. Our guide was great. He was super accommodating and patient and a joy to talk to. He even bought 3 umbrellas for us when it started to rain in Takayama! The places that he took us for lunch was superb. The meals there were one of the best we have. The hotels that you have booked us in are excellent. There were lovely hotels with very attentive staff. The facilities and amenities were wonderful and we feel so pampered. Our best experience was the cooking class in Kanazawa. The 2 ladies were so patient with us and even prepared a special new year drink for us. I would highly recommend this to anyone going to Kanazawa.

  • Mr & Mrs Merkt in India — January 2019

    We are back and have more than enjoyed our time in India. To improve yourself for a next trip will be very challenging because it’s like to ask someone to be more than perfect! Hope to have the pleasure to catch you soon to share our amazing experiences in India.

  • Ms Ong & Ms Poh in Italy — January 2019

    Hope 2019 has been a great start for you.  Most grateful for your warm welcome. Since returning, it has been busy, busy, busy for us. Overall, we had a very lovely and memorable time in Puglia, Sicily and Rome. Appreciate all your suggestions and excellently planned itinerary, which made our trip more enjoyable.  Also blessed with sunny skies, most of the time. Generally, Sicilians are wonderful people, so proud of their diverse heritage (quite bizarre), and food was robust, fresh and authentic. The guides engaged and driver were very knowledgeable and insightful. And passionate to add. We would have preferred more ‘alone time’ to check out some of the places on our own. Explorations of each area with the guides took time, and we were unable to try many of the restaurants you had recommended because of lack of time (apologies for the cancellations - hope restaurants were not offended).  But for those that we tried - fabulous. To note, some eats rejected cash payment (they had concerns with Euro200 and above notes, hmmm..) Highlights for us - hike in Matera, visit to Mount Etna (in wet/foggy weather), visits to Baroque Churches, and Archeological ruins e.g. Greek amphitheatres, ceramic making, cooking class (so fun making pasta and Arincino), chocolate-making, and puppet-making and puppet show, just to name a few.  We found the Papier-mâché and soap making sessions too superficial. You are right, Matera is a very beautiful city.  Deserving to be voted 2019 European City for Culture. For this yearend, again would appreciate your views on which country to visit - Austria or Spain?

  • Cecilia & Geri in Spain — January 2019

    Overall, we had a good time and enjoyed the trip. The hotels were great. We’ve been quite pleased usually with the itineraries suggested by Quotient. For this particular trip, however, there were a few disappointments which we would like to register: 1) The cooking class was very disappointing. Apparently the restaurant where the cooking usually would have taken place wasn’t open and the class was held in the home of the chef. While the chef herself was a very nice lady, we didn’t think she was very well prepared. The place was cold and not very pleasant. The resulting dishes were OK but not outstanding. Personally, I just felt rather underwhelmed with that experience. 2) We ended up in Barcelona on New Year’s Day and while we had asked for some free time in Barcelona, we were completely left on our own and didn’t know that all shops and museums would be closed. Fortunately, we found some Gaudi museums that were open and we had a great time but we felt that Quotient could have made those recommendations and pre-booked for us. Perhaps that New Year’s Day could also have been allocated for the tapas-hopping since the restaurants were open. Thanks for checking in with us.

  • Carol & Hui Cheng in Norway and Sweden — December 2018

    We have enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It turned out to be ok when the snowmobile ride was cancelled as we both fell sick. Love the arrangement you made for us the entire trip. Duration of the entire trip was just right. The time spent in each place was just right. Transfers etc were arranged nicely except for the Alta one but no big issue. My/our favourite parts were how we had a good combination of city and wilderness so we could shop and at the same time had great scenic views. It was also a good decision to start with Norway and end with Sweden. We really liked the Flam train ride, fjord cruise, Flam town, Bergen city, Tromso spa cruise, Abisko Sky Station, Arctic Gourmet Cabin, Ice Hotel and Stockholm city. If I had to pick the top 3 highlights of this trip, it would have to be the ski chairlift to/from Abisko Sky Station, the stay at Arctic Gourmet Cabin and the hot tub on the Tromso spa cruise. Thank you so much for arranging this trip for us! I will definitely spread the world. We are planning our next trip. Tentatively thinking of either Moscow or Australia to see the southern lights in June.
