Camel Travel is run by Julie and Mike Cliffe-Jones. We are lucky to have made the Canary Islands our home for the last two decades. With more than 20 years of experience in the Canaries, it’s not surprising that we specialise in holidays to the Canary Islands. We also love to travel, so we have a wealth of first hand experiences and knowledge from around the world.
Our administrative offices are in the UK, so you’ll pay for your holiday in Sterling, we’re ABTA members and an agent for ATOL holders. Booking with us is just like booking with a high street travel agent, but with the added advantage that we’ll add our personal touch to everything we do for you.
We love to travel and now that our kids have grown up, we’re on a mission to have fun travelling to far away places, all over the world, as well as working hard to arrange fabulous holidays for our clients.
We can arrange any kind of travel for you, but where we excel is in those special trips – a once in a lifetime cruise, visits to faraway places, a luxury Caribbean honeymoon, a family Disney trip or F1 Grand Prix, bucket list moments and experiences of a lifetime.
Because we’re independent, we are not tied to any one supplier or tour operator. We have access to all the systems and offers high street agents have, and we work hard to find a good price for your holiday. We also establish relationships with the better tour operators, those that go the extra mile and understand the importance of the little details to our customers. And of course, we work closely with the accommodation providers here in The Canaries. We are also supported by an admin team based in the UK.
Whether you want to book a holiday package, cruises, city breaks, guided tours or multi-centre holidays – we’re the people who can make it happen.
We make booking holidays too easy according to our clients! We save you time by researching the options to create a shortlist for consideration, you can book with confidence knowing that we have your best interests at heart. We’re well travelled and experienced so can competently answer any questions you may have. Our personal travel service will relax the most anxious of travellers, you can be rest assured knowing we’ve got your back.
Your special requests matter to us, we want to know what makes the perfect holiday for you, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you get everything you want.
We’re also on-hand in case anything does go wrong – we’ll strive to sort it out as quickly as possible to ensure you get back to chilling and enjoying wherever you are.
We have flexible working hours, so you can contact us during the evening or at weekends, as well as during the day. Call us free, anytime, on 0800 810 8404.
Many of our clients book with us time and time again, because we look after them. You don’t need to take our word for it – if you’d like to speak to someone who knows us and works with us, we’ll happily put you in touch with one of our clients.
We love blogging, so we write about our own travel experiences, and because we live in The Canaries, we tend to travel away from them for our own holidays. If you’re interested in reading about our trips, select “Our travels” from the menu. In recent years we have travelled to these destinations:
