Like holidays but better!

We believe it’s time for a fresh type of holiday. A quintessential VIVID trip will include several "phases" like city, beach, wildlife and activity. We have a wide range of phases to choose from to ensure your trip caters for all the different needs and desires of your party. Just compare our Family Fun Vietnam trip with our Sensations of Thailand trip and you’ll see what we mean.

Of course, it’s your trip – so you decide exactly what you do and where you go, with the help of our expert Travel Designers. All the trips shown on our website are examples, and we’ll amend and adapt them, or start from scratch, until we’ve created the perfect trip for you. With so many fascinating destinations and sights to experience, we believe multiphase holidays offer far more than a traditional 2 weeks fly and flop holiday. Isn’t life too short to spend in one place?

Professional Design

Our Travel Designers are all trained and experienced to the highest standard. They have the time to discuss your party, each member and their requirements, and put together a professionally designed trip, which we know can be time-consuming and difficult to research yourself. They also have the experience of having designed hundreds of trips over many years, so putting together a trip that takes in multiple locations is second nature to them.

The knowledge

There's no shortcut to having the knowledge of the choices on the ground. Our Travel Designers have all spent a long time out in their chosen countries, in most cases living there, and update their knowledge with annual trips at least a month long. This means they have an unrivalled knowledge of the experiences, accommodation and transport options in each country.

Just in case

Most holidays run smoothly but sometimes life throws in a twist and your travel plans might need to change. Whether it’s specific to your party or a broader disruption, in both cases you’ll benefit from easy access to 24/7 support and a single point of contact.
