The concept of luxury as it relates to travel has changed in recent years. ‘Luxury travel’ today is less about conspicuous consumption, and more about experiencing a deep connection with a destination. As a result, well-heeled travellers are increasingly looking for an authentic and personalised experience when travelling. Big name hotel chains and well trodden tourist traps are on the out, with travellers instead seeking out secret bolt-holes and genuine local experiences.
Personalisation is a particularly important element of the modern traveller’s experience. This begins at the planning stages of a holiday, and continues through to the service received throughout the trip, and the memories brought home at the end. This new definition of luxury travel sums up our philosophy at Travel by Timothy Oulton, and we aim to provide every one of our clients a truly authentic and genuine travel experience.

“ The service we received from Alex at Travel by Timothy Oulton was simply wonderful. She was in direct contact from the start to better understand our needs, and to provide us with the best options to suit our tastes. She made the booking of our trip incredibly easy. Once we had decided on what it was that we wanted, Alex was available for any changes or other requests we had, of which there were more than a few, right up until the end. And before we left on our journey we were provided with a very detailed and helpful itinerary. We will definitely use the services of Travel by Timothy Oulton again in the future. ”

The Travel by Timothy Oulton team are mad about travel and
discovering fantastic new destinations and hotels. Meet them below:
Chris Brannick - Managing Director
Chris has worked in the travel industry for over 20 years, including 12 years with Timothy Oulton, managing corporate travel for the Halo group. He provides a concierge style level of service for his clients, specialising in complex multi-sector itineraries, utilising his extensive knowledge of airlines, routes, and air fares.
Chris is a big sports fan, and as a result, much of his travel revolves around attending major sporting events. Mauritius, Australia, and New Zealand are on his destinations bucket list for the near future.
Alexandra Harris - Business Development Manager
Alex has travelled to over 50 countries, and is keen to keep adding to that number. Born and bred in Hong Kong, she has travelled extensively in Asia, as well as throughout Europe, USA, Australasia, Africa, and the Indian Ocean. South America is the one continent that eludes her, and it is top of her hit-list. She’s especially keen to visit Colombia, Argentina, and Peru - as soon as possible!
Alex’s passion is discovering the best places to stay and eat the world over, and she adores sharing this knowledge with clients.
Katie Millar - Sales and Reservations Specialist
Katie grew up in New Zealand and has travelled to 36 countries, living in 5 of those. It was while backpacking through Europe that she decided that she wanted to seek out a career in travel and has been designing holidays for clients all around the world for the past 13 years.
‘I love to seek new adventures when travelling and learning about the culture and history of each place. French Polynesia has been the highlight of my travel so far as not only is it picture perfect but the history of the islands which connects personally to me and my upbringing was something incredibly special’
Cindy Ho - Office Manager
Cindy has worked in the travel industry for 5 years now, and she loves the fact that it inspires her to travel to places she might never even have heard of if it weren't for her job! Cindy has been on some very interesting trips in recent years, including whale shark diving in Cebu and the Maldives, and discovering the spectacular Lake Kayangan and the Twin Lagoon in Coron in the Philippines.
Cindy is a phenomenally organised person, and this talent, combined with her love for travel, led her to organise a destination wedding in Da Nang for some very close friends recently. She enjoyed this experience so much that she has decided to do an Overseas Wedding and Honeymoon Consultant course in the near future in order to enhance her skills, so that she can one day organise more of these very special events.
