Aloha adventurers and welcome to Fred Holidays TV. I’m Chris Mayhew and this is a brand new weekly vlog from the team here at Fred where we will be giving you all the latest insight from the travel industry as well as taking you through some of our amazing offerings.
So where better to start with the first video than explaining a little bit about who we are. Fred Holidays is a UK based tour operator, with head offices here in sunny Suffolk. Under the guidance of the Fred. Olsen brand, which some of you may already be familiar with, we offer a variety of different types of holiday. Many of you may just associate the name Fred. Olsen with cruises, but as an entirely different company, Fred Holidays can provide anything from ocean and river cruise to city breaks all over Europe, expeditions to the Polar Regions and trips to pretty much anywhere else in the world.
So what’s the best thing about us? Well our main focus is on tailor-making every single holiday to suit the specific needs of our customers. So if you are looking to travel to Germany, a destination to which we have many fantastic deals, but you don’t want the restrictions of having to choose a pre-determined package; we can piece together something that is a much better fit. If you want to arrange a multi-centre break, whereby you visit any number of different cities or even countries during your holiday, we can research all the relevant prices for all the different hotels and transfers and get back to you with one quote which encompasses everywhere you want to go.
Similarly, if you like the look of one of our river cruises, but you would prefer to see more of the departure city before you set sail, we can add a hotel stay for however many nights you choose to the beginning of the trip and then quote you a price for the whole holiday. Why settle for a package that doesn’t tick all the boxes when our dedicated team can tailor-make your perfect holiday.
We have dedicated websites for our different products to help you find what you are looking for. Fred Cruises, Fred River Cruises, Fred Holidays and Fred Expeditions all do exactly what they say on the tin and have some excellent itineraries within their specific niches. We are a fully-fledged member of ABTA, the Association of British Travel Agents, and all of our holidays are ATOL protected so you can have the peace of mind that is so important when arranging your trip. Our team are all passionate about the travel industry and have even been to many of the destinations that we offer, enabling them to give you excellent first-hand knowledge and advice.
That’s everything for today though, I hope this helped you to understand a little more about who we are and how we can help you to put together your perfect holiday. Please feel free to share this video with anyone who you think will be interested and I'll see you again next time for another Friday thought from Fred Holidays. Goodbye.
