KEEN TO SHARE THIER PASSION FOR TRAVEL WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH, THE LUXURY TRAVEL SOCIETY WAS FORMED.
With over 45 years of collective experience in the travel industry our founders, Spencer and Simon, yearned to go back to the days when the travel industry was regarded as a service industry. The world is full of five-star hotels offering amazing amenities, infinity pools, spa treatments and Michelin star cuisine; the views alone often sell the hotel to consumers. Not every hotel is for everyone and not every destination is for everyone, this is where that gap was forming for consumers and where we connect the dots.
We’re lucky enough to have travelled the world and experience the very best that luxury travel has to offer. We have stayed at the finest hotels, forming great relationships with the hotel management. We have rubbed shoulders with the locals and experienced their authentic culture. It’s these unique connections and diverse experiences that allow us to connect travellers with a hotel and destination that truly suits them. The finer details make a holiday an experience to cherish and it’s in these fine details where we excel. We specialise in bespoke holidays offering only the finest quality activities and accommodations accompanied by an exemplary level of service.
From dreaming to booking, experiencing to remembering, we’re there every step of the way to ensure your travels are smooth and everything is taken care of. Our focus on customer service is integral to our success and if you’re happy, we’re happy. A luxury holiday is more than a hotel, it’s an authentic and refreshing experience. We want you to feel this throughout the entire journey.
What sets us apart?
Meet our founders
I always knew I wanted to work in the travel industry and explore the world. Some 27 years ago I had a chance encounter with a lady who informed me of a new travel agency branch opening in Fulham, changing my life forever. I joined Lunn Poly in 1992 spending 4 years with them on reservations starting in the new Fulham store before moving to the flagship Bayswater store.
In 1996 I left Lunn Poly and moved into the world of direct packaging and marketing of our own tailor made holidays and this is where I first met Simon. It was during my first visit to Dubai in 1999 that I decided my future would be away from sales and set myself a 5 year plan to move into the Product and Contracting side of the travel industry; this has been where I have operated since 2004. I have been lucky enough to travel the world staying at some great hotels, embracing new cultures, winning a few awards and forging long lasting relationships.
For me, the current industry has sacrificed service levels and attention to detail for automation and technology. Our aim at The Luxury Travel Society, is to push service limits to a new level without ever losing that personal touch that made me fall in love with the travel industry many moons ago.
Island hopping around the Caribbean is my idea of a holiday, I love the laid back vibe of the islands and the local people.

I joined the travel industry straight from school, initially working for an air fares database company loading airfares and selling the system to travel agents across the country.
I soon realised I had more interest in the destinations than the technology side of the industry, so I moved on to work for an agent selling Australia & New Zealand holiday packages and Round the World itineraries. From here, I caught the travel bug and soon decided to explore the world, spending time travelling through the Middle East & Asia, before settling to live and work in Australia for some time. Ever since I returned to the UK in 2003 I have specialised in luxury holidays and bespoke travel arrangements to destinations worldwide. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit many of these amazing destinations and experience the hotels for myself, getting to know my clients personally along the way.
Myself and Spencer have handpicked all the resorts featured online based on our experiences and relationships with hoteliers. It’s this level of personalisation we want to bring to The Luxury Travel Society, the ultimate concierge service in travel.
Now I have kids the Maldives is my favourite destination though before that a Safari in South Africa would be my #1 choice.
