Your Travel PA Awaits.

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 don’t sell anything we haven’t seen ourselves. Then we prefer to meet you every now and then – or at least talk at length – to better understand what you’re looking for.

Throughout the year, we will be considering your travel needs and we’ll send you ideas we know you’ll like, to file away for a rainy day; or act upon there and then.

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

With our help, airports become easy and feet don’t touch ground between plane, chauffeur and destination.

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.

Safe Hands

The nature of our work finds us often in far-flung corners of the world, often searching out something for your next trip so that you can relax, knowing you’re in safe hands.

We’re thinking about your next holiday, even when you’re not.

You matter to us.
