About us

Camel Travel is run by Julie and Mike Cliffe-Jones. We’re a family run business, with the unique advantage that we’ve lived in The Canary Islands for almost two decades. Our administrative offices are in the UK, so you’ll pay for your holiday in Sterling, we’re ABTA members and our packages are protected by ATOL. Booking with us is just like booking with a high street travel agent, but nobody knows the islands like we do!

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, especially the USA, as well as working hard to arrange fabulous holidays for our clients.

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 simple Jet2, Thomas Cook or TUI package, arrange a stay at a villa, 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’re also proud of the fact that we are genuine USA specialists, having spent months there over the last few years learning about the vast country. We’ve been to many states and we’ve visited most of the major attractions there, so we’re able to pass on our personal knowledge of the country to you.

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 our 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’re excited about the future and we want you to be part of it!

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, click “Our travels” above.

We promise to strive to find you the best holidays and stay interesting, useful and funny along the way!
