This is the best travel agent bar none. If you’re planning a complex trip that can’t be sorted online and you don’t want your pants pulled down over price you need to get an appointment with Mike.
Got a great deal for me and my family to Tenerife in July for 10 nights. Great friendly service and always smile whenever walking into the shop. Me and my partner will be using pure travel again after our holiday.
