Established in 1984 and based in rural North Yorkshire, Inntravel is recognised as one of the UK’s leading specialist tour operators. We specialise in Slow holidays on which you can discover the lesser-taken path and take your time to enjoy the moment. Though we have grown since the early years as a family-run firm with just a handful of staff, we remain a comparatively small team. As you would expect of a firm offering walking, cycling and snow holidays, everyone at Inntravel loves the great outdoors, and as many staff as possible get to experience our holidays. As a team, we know our holidays, our featured regions and our hotels inside out, and if the person you are speaking to doesn’t know the answer to your question, they will find someone who does.
Award-winning customer service
This knowledge – together with our commitment to tailor holidays to suit you – makes for high levels of customer service, and this in turn has meant that we have won numerous awards over the years. Most recently, we were named Best Short Break Operator at the Guardian & Observer Travel Awards 2013, and joint runner-up in the Best Tour Operator category at the Telegraph Travel Awards 2013. We were also ranked second in Which?’s 2013 survey of holiday companies for the second year in a row.
Complete peace of mind
To guarantee your complete financial security, Inntravel is bonded with the Civil Aviation Authority for holidays by air (ATOL number 2644) and the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA number W780X) for all other holidays.
Association of Independent Tour Operators
We are a member of the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO), the association for specialist holiday companies which share a passion for travel and strive to offer the highest standards of quality and personal service.
Committed to the environment
Our love of the regions which feature in our programmes brings with it a wish to benefit them through our holidays. To this end, we almost exclusively use local, family-run hotels and other suppliers so as to support the local economy; we make use of public transport wherever possible; and we also support a range of social and environmental projects. Our commitment to responsible travel is reflected by the fact that we are one of just a small number of companies to have been awarded the maximum five stars for our sustainable tourism policy by AITO.
