With so many ways to book your holiday, how do you decide whether to do your own research and book online, use a large well-known travel company or book through a smaller, independent travel agent? By choosing to book with Mainline, not only are you supporting an independent business, you're also choosing a company that's big enough to know the industry, but small enough to know our clients well, enabling us to offer personalised suggestions and advice.
When deciding which travel agent to use, we understand that experience is key — after all, there really is no substitute for local knowledge when it comes to travel. Our close-knit team is very well travelled; in fact, between the four of us, we have well over 100 years of travel experience. What this means is that we can offer a truly personal service, providing you with unrivalled insider knowledge, travel tips and impartial advice.

We are impressed by the professionalism and quality of service they provide. They always offer useful suggestions based on insider knowledge and somehow always manage to find the best price/quality combination."

"My wife and I have been clients of Vanessa for over 25 years. She is very professional and knows the type and location of hotels that we like to stay at. She is well travelled and able to speak from experience."
