Welcome to Mainline Travel...

We're an ABTA-registered independent travel agent in Gedling, just outside Nottingham.

We pride ourselves on offering a truly personal service, whilst doing our best to ensure your holiday offers the best value for money. Whether you're looking for a tropical beach holiday destination; wedding anniversary holiday ideas; escorted group travel; a personalised holiday — or something else — we're happy to do all the hard work for you and find you the holiday of a lifetime.

Mainline office


Mainline Travel has been in Gedling, Nottingham for over 40 years — first opening our doors in 1979.

Ian Forecast and his wife Vicki took over the business in 1994. We have two other highly experienced travel consultants, all of whom have travelled substantially and are experts in worldwide travel. Vanessa Clifford joined us in 1997 and Karen Beck has been with us for more than 20 years. You can find out more about each of our team members and their relevant travel experience on our meet the team page.

For many years now, we have been running escorted group travel tours, led by tour escort John Dawn. He is well known in the area and escorts 3 or 4 trips every year which always start and finish at our office in Gedling. Find out more about these on our escorted group tours page.

Your personal travel agent

We're a close-knit team of three, and between us we have over 100 years' experience in travelling around the world. Unlike most travel agents, we are completely independent and can match our clients' needs to the best holiday and tour operator for them. Book with us and you'll have a dedicated consultant who will see you through from enquiry to the day you travel.

We can help you decide where to go on holiday and, as a member of Advantage Travel Centres, we're able to provide competitively priced travel options, whilst offering completely impartial advice. Plus, booking your holiday with us means you can book with confidence as we're an ABTA member and all our holidays are ATOL protected.

We're happy to have a chat about your dream holiday face-to-face in our Gedling office, over the phone or via email, so get in touch today!
