About Us

The Destination Lounge has been sending clients to holiday destinations across the globe since 2006.

We're an independent company offering our experience to couples, families and single travellers 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 reassuring.

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!

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 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 backing us up, and therefore behind you and your holidays!

You can check our ABTA licences by clicking here to visit ABTA's own website.

You'll see that we're part of The Advantage Travel Partnership: our Ilfracombe branch is under ABTA No.: P7162, or Barnstaple Branch under ABTA No.: P7257 and our South Molton Branch under ABTA No.: P7163.

Travel insurance with Covid Bubble Cover at The Destination Lounge, care of Holiday Extras

Our Travel Insurance now comes with 'Covid Bubble Protection'!

At The Destination Lounge we recommend that you always cover your travel plans with suitable Insurance, ensuring that your policy carries the correct level of cover to suit your holiday.

Whether you need a single trip policy, an annual travel insurance policy to cover you for 365 days, or maybe you're setting sail and need cruise insurance — we can supply a wide array of comparable cover level options for you to choose from. 

The benefits of a Bubble policy:

  • Cancelling your trip if you catch Covid-19 before travelling
  • Cancelling your trip if someone named on the policy catches Covid-19
  • Denial of boarding for your return flight due to a suspected case of Covid-19 (Platinum only or optional extra)
  • Cancelling or cutting your trip short due to changes in FCO advice caused by fire, flood, storm, earthquake, riot or civil unrest
