Our story

The story of VIVID Travel begins with a determination to create much more interesting, imaginative and exciting holidays which celebrate the diverse experiences on offer across the world.​ We believe every holiday is unique and precious, as people come together to create lasting and special memories of shared experiences.​ 

A typical VIVID trip will include several "phases" like city, beach, wildlife and activity and we have a wide range of trip types to choose from to ensure your holiday caters for all the different needs and desires of your party.

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. 

Let us show you how we make extraordinary journeys.

Travel Designers

Each VIVID holiday is unique; designed with genuine expertise and destination knowledge by Travel Designers who have lived in and travelled extensively across the countries they specialise in. They have an unrivalled first-hand knowledge of all the experiences, accommodation and transport options available.
