A Travel PA

Just how important is your holiday?

Quite? Very? Something you can just book up quickly on the internet between jobs?

Or would you feel happier if a mature intelligent professional handled your account – like in proper business?

That’s where we come in.

Give us a try the next time you’re thinking of going away.

We want to be your Travel PA.

Global Artichoke Private Travel is the culmination of twenty years travelling experience and enlightened conversations with doormen, hoteliers, villa owners and barmen on six continents.

In order to find the best solution on every occasion – the perfect hotel, villa or tailor-made itinerary – we do not sell anything we have not seen ourselves and then we prefer to meet you, every now and then, to explain our suggestions and hear your thoughts.

Throughout the year, we will be considering your travel needs and will send you ideas based on your likes and dislikes, to file away for a rainy day; or act upon there and then.

We will share with you the benefits of ‘being on the inside’ of the travel industry. You will be better informed and have expert advice on hand at all times. Our knowledge of destinations and global network of friends and contacts mean we can best advise and arrange any travel plan, anywhere.

With our help, airports become easy and feet don’t touch ground between plane, chauffeur and destination. Unless you want them to.

Not only can we tell you how to get there and what is new but also when to go, what to do, where to be seen and what to avoid.

We are constantly travelling and researching; staying in hotels and visiting houses and villas, climbing into tree houses, swimming along beaches, skiing between lodges and going on safari. We try the restaurants, look in at the bars, visit the sights and (occasionally!) dance in the clubs, so that we truly can tell you all about it.

‘Gone Fishing’
