Low price policyWe believe that expert knowledge and excellent service should come as standard. Whether the planning of your holiday takes one phone call or multiple discussions over many weeks, there is no additional cost to you for our experts’ input. It is also our policy to keep our prices as low as possible, to make high quality travel accessible to the largest number of people we can.
Buying powerThis low price policy is made possible through our buying power, which is generated by the combined influence of the Cox & Kings group of companies worldwide. As a result, we are able to contract flights, hotels and ground services at highly competitive rates.
Comparing like with likeBy its nature, high quality travel is not cheap and, when planning a trip, it can seem as if there is a big difference in price between what, on the surface, are similar holidays. When comparing like with like, we are confident that our holidays represent excellent value for money when the number and quality of services included are taken into account.
Services of the London officeIn addition to the expertise of your personal tour consultant, Cox & Kings aims to provide the highest levels of customer care, from your initial inquiry through to the detailed itineraries and tour notes sent to you prior to departure, and finally, in answering any queries you may have when you return from your travels.
Personal service on your travelsWhether you are part of a group or travelling independently, you will be met at each airport, train station and quay along the way, transferred to and from your hotel and have the details of your itinerary explained to you.
Expert local guidesCox & Kings uses the services of specially chosen local English-speaking guides who really know their subject and can bring places to life. In addition to providing relevant background information, they can also explain the local way of life, customs and issues in depth, far beyond what is covered in even the best guidebooks.
We believe that holidays should benefit the local people and their environment, and we strive to ensure that the local culture and communities form an integral part of our trips.
