We are aware that a company based in Turkey have copied our website and are hosting it under the name of Freddie Bailey Travel. This company has no relationship with Roger Walker Travel, is using our data and images without our permission and is emailing hotels around the world trying to make what appear to be fictitious bookings. Our advice is to ignore these emails. We have asked the company involved to remove the website as soon as possible.
A message from our team ….
Our travel agency, Roger Walker Travel, celebrates its 20th anniversary this month – testimony, we believe, to the good service that we have offered to our customers for the past 2 decades.
Despite the introduction and massive expansion of the internet during these 20 years, many travellers still value the support and expert advice that an experienced travel consultant can give and continue to trust their holiday arrangements to a travel professional.
Roger Walker Travel’s sister company, Ski 2, also celebrates its 20th anniversary this winter and has flourished over the years, arranging holidays for over 32,000 skiers so far. This side of our business continues to grow and it is with great sadness that we have now decided to cease our travel agency business to give us more time to focus all of our efforts on our ski tour operation.
Those who have enjoyed our services over the years should not fear however, for we have come to an agreement with an experienced and very knowledgeable travel consultant based here in Winchester and she will be pleased to offer the same ongoing, friendly service for which we have been renowned. Kate will be pleased to assist you with any future holiday enquiries.
The 4 of us will continue to work hard further developing our ski business from here at The Old Forge in Twyford, so we will be on hand should you have any queries in the coming months. Please free to call us on 01962 713330 or, if you live locally, pop in to see us.
For those travel agency clients with a confirmed existing booking with us, we will continue to deal with these bookings until you return home safely, so there is nothing extra that you need to do. These holidays will continue to be 100% protected by our ongoing ABTA membership.
We thank you again for your business over the years and wish you lots of carefree travelling in the future.
Best wishes from us all
Roger, Louise, Sarah and Jane
Kate Self, Travel Counsellor
Kate Self has worked in travel for many years and, having travelled extensively, is looking forward to helping our clients continue to travel around the world. Kate is part of the Travel Counsellor network; a worldwide business with many locally based travel experts, each looking after their own valued clients. This means that you get the same personal travel service which we know that you enjoy, with the backing of an established company offering 100% financial protection.
Whilst it might take a few months for Kate to understand your exact personal requirements, we will, with your permission, be passing on details of the type of holidays that you enjoy, the style of accommodation that you prefer and the destinations that you love. She will soon appreciate your individual needs and, as we have done for you, will work with you to create some perfect holidays. Whilst we can’t of course expect you to use Kate’s services, we very much hope that you will take our recommendation and trust her with your next holiday enquiry – we feel sure she will look after you as well as I believe that we have done over the years.
We suggest however that all new holiday enquiries should be directed to Kate as follows:
- Email – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Telephone – 01962 659280
- Website – www.travelcounsellors.co.uk/kate.self
Please do mention that you have been a client of ours when you make contact.
