Hi Gill, Just to let you know what a fantastic job you have done for us, we are having an amazing and wonderful time. Many Thanks!

From their holiday in South Africa

The information and assistance with all arrangements from Embarque Travel are second to none.  Gill strives to ensure your holiday is tailored to your needs and stress free.  We have just returned from our 3rd holiday arranged through Embarque Travel and once again it was perfect.  Thank you.


We were recommended to meet with Gill from Embarque Travel and we found her so friendly and very professional.  She planned our holiday to our personal needs and her suggestions were highly inspirational resulting in a very memorable holiday that just fell into place and lived up to all expectations and more. We would highly recommend using Embarque Travel.

A fabulous week at The Ritz Carlton Abama in Tenerife.  Every detail was taken care of by Embarque Travel and a week of pure luxury and indulgence.  Looking forward to arranging our next trip with you.

I was very fortunate to meet Gill purely by chance at a time when my wife and I were starting to plan a very special 30th wedding anniversary holiday. From that initial chance encounter, Gill put in an enormous amount of effort as we sorted through where we wanted to go and determined our “wish list” and priorities on those wishes.

Once we had settled, with Gill’s advice, on the Maldives, Gill then provided us with a number of superb options to satisfy our wishes. The final destination chosen easily met all of our wishes, and in many cases exceeded them. It was a trip of a lifetime.

We would unreservedly recommended Embarque Travel, and will certainly work with Gill for future holidays.


I am the sort of traveller who usually books a flight and works out the rest when I arrive at my destination. But this time I wanted to go somewhere and try different activities and water sports and after spending ages trying to sort something out I was getting frustrated, when a friend recommended Embarque Travel.

I have never gone through a travel agent before but I spoke to Gill and she was great, she listened to my requirements and very quickly got back to me with a wide selection of options all within my price range and was a able to advise me on which holiday she thought would best suit my needs.

Embarque Travel got me a great deal and took all the organising and booking hassle away and what's more we had a fantastic holiday !! ( Despite forgetting to take my purse with me ! )

I have since recommended them to loads of my friends and will be getting in touch with Gill soon to organise this years adventure!

We have used Embarque travel for the last couple of years and Gill has been able to tailor our holidays exactly to our requirements and at the same time we have benefited from her vast knowledge and expertise with suggestions to enhance our holiday experience.  Every detail was covered enabling us to enjoy a stress free and memorable holiday. We can highly recommend Gill.


We have been using Gill at Embarque for all our travel requirements for the past  2 years, for both business and leisure.  As ex pats we have booked all our flights to and from Thailand with Gill.  Embarque took all the leg work out of finding good airlines and convenient flights.

We have also used Embarque to find us holidays with a difference, without all the fuss and hassle of trying to find it ourselves. Having the knowledge and experience she has, Gill is able to provide tailor made holidays to suit everyone, she offers a fantastic, first class service in all sects of travel.

Providing a fantastic, friendly and first class service,  we would highly recommend Embarque to everyone and will continue to use them for a long time to come.


Gill from Embarque Travel came highly recommended through friends, and her expert advice on destinations we have visited have enhanced our holidays immensely. Gill listens to what you are trying to achieve from a holiday and personally tailors it to fit your requirements leaving you to just turn up and enjoy…

Gill has been so helpful to us when organising long holidays to remember. Every part of our experience with Embarque Travel was fantastic. The support in planning, booking and advising was second to none. Embarque Travel will always be my 'first choice' when booking a special holiday.

Gill Jackson organised two magnificent holidays for us to the Dominican Republic.  The hotel was top class and private transport was awaiting for us at the Dominican airport to take us to this paradise. She even checked us in on line.

However this was not all that Gill organised. We flew from Gatwick in the early hours so Gill organised a hotel for us for the night before,  train tickets to get to and from Gatwick and as my travelling companion has severe mobility problems, disabled assistance all the way from York railway station to the hotel in Punta Cana. All we had to do was to get ourselves to the station at York.

Talk about professional - Gill has it all!


We were introduced to Gill and her travel company by friends. She organised and planned our last holiday, which was definitely the holiday of our lifetime. Gill gave us an exceptional level of help with every part of this complicated trip. All her suggestions were really exciting and in tune with what we wanted to do. Then the organisation was seamless, giving us a perfect, relaxing break!

We would highly recommend using Embarque Travel - superb!

With Gill’s professionalism and expertise we enjoyed a truly memorable trip on the Orient Express to Venice.  Everything was planned and organised to make our Silver Wedding celebrations extra special and with Gill’s knowledge and experience she made sure we made the most of our trip.  Thanks to Gill and we will certainly be recommending Embarque Travel to friends and family.

Embarque Travel has helped and booked 2 trips to New York City for our family.  Both trips with a limited budget and each time Gill has not only booked with enormous efficiency but also careful consideration for our individual requirements as a family.

When only visiting the States for 5 days, sourcing different flights to ensure the most of our time was invaluable. Flights and hotel were sourced, tickets provided and seats booked with no hesitation and only the upmost professionalism.

I have already recommended Gill and Embarque Travel to my friends and will continue to do so, she is friendly, providing ideas and booking everything so all we had to do was enjoy our stay. Thanks Gill... Will be in touch for another break soon!


We have used Embarque travel three times now and each time Gill has organised a holiday that exceeded our expectations and that created very special memories memories . The whole experience was enjoyable starting with the initial consultation right through to arriving home at the end of the holiday, no hassles only pleasure.

It is with confidence and much anticipation we go next month on our third continental holiday organised through Embarque Travel in the knowledge that the hotel selections and transfer arrangements have all been reliably handled for us to enjoy another break in the sunshine. I have no hesitation in recommending the personal care and attention of Embarque Travel in arranging a trouble free holiday.


We have been fortunate to book holidays with Gill at Embarque Travel on more than one occasion. Her expertise, friendly approach and utmost attention to detail is second to none, culminating in a holiday that is completely hassle free. We strongly recommend her to anyone about to book a holiday.

I had booked holidays with the same tour operator for a number of years but after meeting Gill at a charity event I decided to give her a call. She quickly obtained a number of quotes and I soon realised that adding a travel agent to the equation offers many benefits! I would thoroughly recommend Embarque Travel; Gill is knowledgeable, professional and efficient but most importantly she is friendly and personable. In short she offers an excellent service.


Just wanted to thank you for all your help with booking our holiday, best holiday of our life!  We will be recommending your company to others.

We have now booked twice to visit Barbados through Gill and we would not hesitate in recommending her. On both occasions we found Gill professional, friendly and always keen to go that extra mile for her customers, which we have found sometimes lacks with the larger operators. Gill listened carefully to our requirements and tailored everything to our needs, resulting in a wonderful, relaxing holiday on both occasions.

Niki and I wanted to thank you for arranging such a fabulous holiday for us. The resort you found us was great, with something for all of us, and the local town had excellent restaurants and good shopping (which kept the girls happy). Best of all you took away all the stress of arranging a holiday. A quick chat with you to explain the sort of thing we had in mind and you came back with options and prices – no searching the internet or trawling through brochures for us!  Wishing you all the best with you business.

Just a quick line to say thank-you so much for all your help and advice in planning our recent trip to New York! Your knowledge was invaluable and as first time travellers 'Stateside' we felt so much more at ease having had your reassuring help along the way!

We will be recommending you every chance we get and will certainly be getting in touch for our next trip


Thank you so much for all your help in organising our recent trip to Thailand.  We both had a fantastic time.  Everything from parking the car at Manchester to arriving back home ran like clockwork.  It certainly made it far more enjoyable knowing that all our arrangements were being taken care of by such a high level of expertise.  All choices of flights, hotels and transfer times were perfect.  Your thought of everything.  Thanks again.
