Bridge & Wickers
We were delighted to complete the purchase of award-winning tour operator, Bridge & Wickers, in March 2012.
Ranked by the Sunday Times Travel Magazine as the best operator to Australia and New Zealand in 2012, Bridge & Wickers bring a wealth of specialist knowledge to The Ultimate Travel Company, not just in Australasia but also Canada, Alaska and the South Pacific. As a result, we can now help you explore even more of the world! In September 2014, Bridge & Wickers were also voted ‘Runner-up’ in the Specialist Tour Operator category of the Conde Nast Traveller Reader Awards.
In designing their tailor-made holidays, Bridge & Wickers like to offer the most authentic experiences in each destination rather than simply advising on an itinerary and making the necessary arrangements. They are very good at what we do - but don’t just take our word for it! They hold four ‘OzCars’ awarded by Tourism Australia, for example, including the coveted ‘Travel Company of the Year’.
When Bridge & Wickers relocated to our offices in Fulham, we were fortunate to inherit all their knowledgeable sales consultants and they continue to provide the high level of expertise and friendly, flexible service their clients have come to expect, each one of the team ready and willing to go that extra mile to ensure you have the best holiday imaginable.
Also continuing to work under the ‘Ultimate Umbrella’ will be the ‘Bridge’ (Jerry) and ‘Wickers’ (David), the two founding partners who will always be available to respond personally to your comments and questions. Both have a history well steeped in travel; with Jerry previously establishing the successful long haul agency Bridge The World and David being, for 17 years, the Chief Travel Correspondent of The Sunday Times.
As well as contacting their consultants directly, we would be delighted to send you copies of their award-winning brochures on Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and Canada. The brochures feature a selection of suggested itineraries that are meant to inspire, not simply to be booked as they stand.
We are very excited that Bridge & Wickers are now part of the Ultimate family. We share the same values and level of integrity, and are confident that this initiative will bring an enhanced synergy to our respective worlds of travel.
