The promise of excellence

In the twelve years since Quartz Travel opened, we have become synonymous with quality and service.
We have built our excellent reputation – both local and national - on taking our highly personal arrangements to an altogether different level.

We go the extra mile for our clients with highly detailed itineraries, including pre-booked seat numbers (when possible) contacting hotels to try and get room upgrades and are available to them 24/7 in the event of an emergency.


Our innovation of a Club Lounge is, we believe, unique amongst travel agents. Enjoy a glass of champagne, wine or a soft drink, when you call in to collect your travel documents and we go through the details of your trip with you. Your journey starts well before you reach the airport.

Our satisfaction levels are reflected by an exceptionally high level of repeat business and by the large proportion of new clients who have been recommended to us.


All your arrangements are fully protected, financially, by the bonding schemes operated by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) and the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL) an important factor to take into account, now there are so many online organisations, such as accommodation only companies and airlines, where your money may not protected, if they fail.


We are a multi award winning company, having won acclaim within the travel industry and been recognised as “Small Business of the Year”, in York, competing against businesses outside our own industry.


We cover every destination you are likely to have heard of and, if you are looking for new ideas, many that you will not know! We do simple and we do complex, but they all have one thing in common. Whether it's a short break to a European city or a round the world trip with multiple stopovers, our superb service and attention to detail will ensure a memorable experience. Just imagine; we will make your dream a reality.
