About Us - The Destination Lounge

Who are we?

The Destination Lounge has been sending clients to holiday destinations across the globe since 2006.
We're an independant company offering our experience to couples, families and single travelers from Aberdeen to Penzance (and beyond) - but because we're a member of The Advantage Travel Partnership we have access to large and small suppliers which means we can hunt out the best deals on your holidays without being tied down to a limited Tour Operator list, like some major high street agents.

We can offer you holidays and experiences from all over the world, but we really enjoy putting together tailor-made itineraries and dream holidays to luxury Islands in the Caribbean and Indian Ocean. Our team have travelled extensively around the world so we can give you plenty of first hand knowledge from our personal experience - which is always reasuring.

Of course, we're always looking for the next hot spot to visit!

Over the years we've been successful in winning several awards for our work such as multiple awards from Sandals & Beaches resorts - including Top UK Agent. That's something we're very proud of!

Big Blue Marble Limited

Our growth in recent years led to us forming a new limited company to call our own. That company is called 'Big Blue Marble Limited' - we thought it was a good name as that's often how Planet Earth is referred to when seen from space!

How am I protected with The Destination Lounge?

This is a very sensible question to ask. In fact as more people ask it of themselves, the more they are turning to The Destination Lounge to book – because that way their hard-earned money is safe!

ABTA – Association of Bonded Travel Agents

The Destination Lounge is bonded with ABTA under number P7162, P7163 & P7257The Destination Lounge is a member of ABTA which means you have the benefit of ABTA's assistance and Code of Conduct. Many of the travel arrangements that we sell are protected in the unlikely event of our financial failure. Always ask us about the protection that applies to your booking.

Sounds great, but what does that mean to you? Essentially ABTA members pay a large amount of money to ABTA, who hold it in a bond, so if that company were to go bust, the funds are already secured to refund clients.

Don't be fooled into thinking The Destination Lounge is a risk because its small... As part of the Advantage Travel Partnership we have a huge company behind us, and therefore behind you and your holidays!
