Book with the Expert 

Travel Associates’ Ian Carswell knows what he’s doing. Once tasked with putting together an itinerary for a client travelling through Ethiopia, Ian delivered a custom, off-the-beaten-track adventure which even included a visit to rock churches in Lalibela. Despite travelling the world, Ian’s favourite destination remains the UK, his birth country.

“I love that the country’s history is visible in so many ways, from the amazing museums to the landmarks and even the architecture of the buildings,” he says.

Ian’s travel advice is second to none. Whether it’s something as simple as trying to match your travel dates with special events at your destination, to ensuring that your accommodation is perfectly suited to your needs, his helpful suggestions add value that money can’t buy. 

“Accommodation is all about location, location, location,” Ian says. “Having the sights on your doorstep gives you more time to explore but choosing the right room type matters too.”
