“We had the most perfect holiday, thanks so much for your excellent recommendation. I can’t rate the holiday highly enough and we’ll definitely be contacting Travel Matters for future holidays.  We usually do all our own arrangements and it was such a luxury to have it all organised and get such an amazing result.”

About Travel Matters
Travel Matters is an independent travel agency in South West London and opened in 1998. Based in what has been dubbed “Nappy Valley” for having the highest percentage of under-fives in the whole of the UK, the independent travel agency has always specialized in family holidays. At Travel Matters, you’ll receive personal travel advice for your family holidays. We organise everything from safaris to USA fly drives, honeymoons and other tailormade itineraries.

Travel Matters is run by Local Mum Karen. It was Karen’s first baby 25 years ago. She has always enjoyed organising the perfect family holiday. Since then, she has juggled travel and family life, with the arrivals of her daughters Alice and Elsie, now 19 and 22. Her experience is wide and varied including taking old people around Europe with Page and Moy, hosting double-decker bus tours with Top Deck travel and running her own tour operating programme in Portugal. She can also be found slipping from English into fluent French, German or Portuguese, often helping in those tricky hotel booking negotiations! The last couple of years she has visited Thailand, South Africa, Mexico, Cyprus, France, Eygpt and five Caribbean islands.
