Your Trusted Advisers

Here at Sovereign, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to holidays. We know that every holiday tells a unique story that will last in the memory bank for years. This is where we, as Trusted Advisers, come in, offering honest and helpful advice to find you that perfect holiday.

We live and breathe travel. In fact, we've travelled extensively across the entire Sovereign programme, giving us unparalleled knowledge of our hotels and destinations. We are passionate about sharing our insights and experiences with others, from a destination’s hidden gems and not-to-be-missed dishes, to the hotel suites with the best sunset views from the balcony. 

Offering a complete end-to-end service, we will be on hand throughout your whole experience, from the moment you call us to your arrival back in the UK, anticipating your needs and fulfilling any requirements.

So, who exactly will you be speaking to? Below, you can read all about us: where we've been, our most memorable travel experiences and, of course, our favourite Sovereign hotels.
