A Family Affair

The Prestbury Travel Group was founded in 1983 by Stella and Peter Bosworth and, with their children James & Emma, is one of only a few truly independent family-owned and run, luxury travel operators in the UK. With Emma as Sales & Marketing Director and James taking over as Managing Director, they have added a new dimension in driving the business forward.

  • Our Journey. Established in 1983

    Our adventures in travel started 40 years ago with the opening of our first retail travel agency in the heart of Prestbury Village, a quintessential English Village, close to Manchester and home to many a football legend and showbiz celebrity. In a period when package holidays were the mainstay, it was our passion for tailor-making holidays to match our client’s wishes that set us apart from the competition and helped us go from strength to strength in a short space of time.

    Tour operating was a natural progression, which started over 20 years ago after a request for a private villa in Barbados. As none of the ‘package’ operators featured such a holiday we contacted the villa agencies in Barbados and packaged the accommodation with flights, creating a holiday of a lifetime - a luxury villa with private pool and staff.

    Having identified a niche for luxury bespoke holidays our tour operation was born and rapidly grew to include Caribbean hotels, moving quickly into the Indian Ocean, Middle East and Europe and we are proud to be one of the UK’s leading villa operators to the Caribbean. Our growth has been organic, and by listening to our client’s requests we are constantly evolving and adding to our luxury worldwide portfolio. This led to the inclusion of 6-star cruising and our tailor-made touring holidays.

  • Our Philosophy

    Our philosophy is to offer inspirational travel holidays, expert guidance, personalised service coupled with competitive prices. We aim to provide a truly exceptional holiday experience from the moment you contact us to the moment you arrive home.

    We understand that planning a holiday is more than a financial commitment; it’s an emotional one too.  A holiday of a lifetime must not be marred by even the slightest concern.  Our clients use us time and again, from all over the country, just because they know how personally we treat them. We’d love for you to find out for yourself.
