The Team

Behind the scenes at McKinlay Kidd is a dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate team, just waiting to help you plan and book your holiday...

…whether a longed-for trip-of-a-lifetime, a special celebration or simply a quick getaway to experience a different pace and way of life. We know just how important your holiday is to you and we commit to attention-to-detail throughout. We’ll ensure you have a personal contact in the team, but you’ll also find that everyone who picks up the phone is equally prepared to help. There’s only a dozen or so of us – you won’t get lost in an impersonal call-centre. Whilst our office hours are standard UK Mon-Fri, we can easily arrange an evening or weekend call to discuss your plans – just let us know what time suits you best.

If you need us to keep things secret – for a surprise birthday treat, or even a proposal – no problem. Because we offer a very personal and tailored service, we can accommodate and plan around many different requirements, so just let us know and we’ll suggest the best options for you. We can advise concerning accessibility or dietary matters, we’ll let you know if luggage space or weight is limited and we know the important little details, such as places to stay which welcome dogs. Perhaps you’re searching for family roots or a place with a special connection? Just mention it and we’ll do our utmost to plan it in for you – we love a challenge!

And, for complete peace of mind, we’re available 24/7 for customers away on a McKinlay Kidd trip – details will be provided in your holiday information pack.
