The staff in Braintree are very helpful and we trust their suggestions. We have enjoyed many holidays booked through them and recommend using them.

Gwen, Braintree

Just booked our next holiday, got an amazing deal with everything we asked for and more. Florida is a dream holiday for us and our children, and Stacey thought of everything and made it very easy. Would definitely recommend. Amazing prices and great service, so thank you!

 

Zoe & family, Witham

Just wanted to say a very big thank you for keeping us get everything sorted and move our cruise over to 2021. Fingers crossed things are much better soon for everybody concerned.

The Hoyles, Chelmsford

A belated thank you for transferring our river cruise this June to July 2021; a big weight off our minds.  Thank you and your colleagues for all your hard work at this unprecedented period of time and looking forward to coming into Co-op travel again when things are finally getting back to normal.

Peter and Lesley, Chelmsford

We hope all is well with you and your colleagues. I just want to say: Thank you for sorting out our holiday refund. We were so disappointed to miss our time away but you have made the whole experience better by sorting everything out for us with Titan. I hope it won’t be too long before things get a bit more back to normal and we can book a new holiday with you. Keep safe and thank you again. Your professionalism and efficiency is much appreciated. 

Caroline and David, Chelmsford

Just a note to say that we have received a cheque. Thank you for fighting our corner and for ensuring we got our full refund. And just when one thought things were picking up, Spain happened. Boy, you do have our sympathies as things must be really difficult in your business at the moment. Take care and thanks again for the cheque.

Martin & Sue, Chelmsford

Many, many thanks for all you did to get us out to Mauritius and back after the Gatwick drone fiasco. You did so much, and we had a fabulous time.

Chris & Rob, Danbury
