Thanks for taking the time to Visit Florida Travel Service
At Florida Travel Service, our goal is simple: To deliver the best Florida holiday experiences for our clients, tailored to their specific wishes. How do we do this? Through the combination of travel industry expertise alongside the personal expertise, experiences and knowledge garnered from many years and many happy memories travelling to Florida for holidays as a family, individual and as part of a group.
Using Our Own Experiences to Help You
There’s so much to do, so many places to go and an ever expanding number of attractions to enjoy within the state of Florida that for many, it’s difficult to know where to begin.
You only have to wander into Main St at the entrance to the Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort to see the raft of people enthralled by the joy of the place and yet at a complete loss as to where to go or what to do first.
And yet, with a little bit of pre-holiday planning, you can stride with purpose into this or any other of the theme parks with a clear idea of where you’re heading and more brain space to allow the magic of the surroundings to wash over you.
As seasoned visitors to Florida we’d like to help ensure you book the right holiday for you and your party, firstly by listening to what you want, but also by offering advice and indeed by learning from our own successes and indeed mistakes – so that you have the holiday you desire and deserve.
For some people, the appeal is a full on family adventure on-site at one of the major theme park resorts.
If this is the case then allow us to help you decide on the resort that fits your likes, your desires and your budget. We’ll help you every step of the way from flights, transfers, accommodation and tickets to dining options, car hire and all the ‘tricks & tips’ we’ve learned to get the most (with the least amount of fuss!) out of your time in the parks.
Then again, maybe you’re looking towards the idyllic delights of Florida’s ample coastline. With a thorough knowledge of the different offerings across each resort we can work with you to find the hotel, apartment or villa in the right location for you.
Spring Break with the students in Daytona, recline with a book on a quiet spot in Longboat Key or some snorkelling out in the Florida Keys?
For many there’s the appeal of the Two-Centre Holiday. Maybe a week on the move around the theme parks before unwinding on the beach or by the pool further along the coast. Or perhaps a Fly-Drive holiday, picking up your car at the airport and heading out on the road with the freedom to discover Florida any way you choose (although we’re happy to give as much help on your route as you want). Whatever your preference we can find a holiday to suit.
What You’ll Find on the Site
The intention for the Florida Travel Service site has always been to provide an ongoing resource for families, couples, individuals and groups seeking to explore Florida and indeed the rest of the USA.
Working with an ABTA bonded travel agency in Cardiff we endeavour to combine our experience with travel industry expertise (and the peace of mind that you’re holidays have that ABTA protection) to tailor holidays around your specific needs. We all lead busy lives and planning a holiday, particularly to a destination such as Florida, can be time consuming and, if you’re new to the place, tricky to find the best options.
Which is why we will help put it together for you. Taking time to understand what you’re looking to get out of your holiday (adventure, fun, sport, a bit of chillaxing by the sea – or a combination of it all), we’ll put suggestions together based on your wishes and your budget. We’ll do the searching and planning so you don’t have to.
Over the years we’ve organised: BIG family trips to Disney, Universal and the other parks (this is numero uno in terms of holiday types to Florida), as well as luxury villa or hotel breaks, Fly-Drives around the state, cruise and stay combinations, Twin Centre holidays and other flexible travel routes.
In addition we’ve organised city breaks to New York, Boston and Chicago, as well as holidays across the USA – including one stunning family adventure in 2015 from east coast to west!
However, we’re also acutely aware that many people these days prefer to seek out their own holidays online.
With that in mind, this site also tries to assist this process, directing you to sites and resources that we feel may offer the kind of deals and holiday extras that you’ll need. And if you have a question that you want answering, we’ll do our best. Contact us through this site, or our Twitter or Facebook pages – details below.
To be upfront about this, any links to related sites that we feel may be of benefit to the holiday seeker is done so in good faith and past positive experience. However, as we have signed up as affiliates to these companies, commission or other recompense may be paid to us by that business. Please be assured that any site or resource we refer you to here, is done so because we genuinely feel it may be of use and value to our visitors. It’s a way for us to continue funding the site. More details on how this works can be found here.
The aim over time is to build this site into an invaluable and regularly updated resource full of useful information, guides, news advice and offers primarily for Florida offers but also for tailored trips throughout the USA.
If you’ve got any questions then just ask. If you have any tips, advice or news that you’d like to share, drop us a line – we’d love to hear about it.
Your Florida Travel Consultant
I’ve had the good fortune to have travelled quite a bit over the years, with Florida a location to which I’ve frequently re-visited since my first magical jaunt there as an 8-year-old boy back in 1981. Between me, my colleagues and indeed the loved ones with whom I’ve shared my experiences I’ve sampled many a different kind of Florida holiday over the years; travelling the length and breadth of the state.
I still remember the excitement of visiting the place as a child and indeed a slightly harder to please teenager. As a student who spent time at an American University campus I’ve sampled the delights of the ‘road trip’ and the wild times of Spring Break in Daytona. As an adult (I’m loathe to say grown-up) I’ve enjoyed trips with friends, golf excursions and romantic holidays with my wife. And these days I watch with awe as my own children’s eyes light up with unbridled joy when we’ve stepped back out onto Floridian soil.
Add to to that there is the collated experiences of those who have travelled and enjoyed holidays to Florida, who we’ve helped along the way or maybe even have just had the pleasure to talk with.
If you’ve had any experiences, tips or advice for those travelling to the US in the future, we’d love you to share it with us. Get in touch via our contact form or let us know via our Facebook or Twitter pages.
