We’re working from home until further notice, but remain fully operational with uninterrupted access to all our systems.  So it’s very much business as usual.

A leap of faith…

Ultimate's Managing Director, Nick Van Gruisen tells us why now is the time to take a leap of faith and book that holiday we've all been waiting for....


25th February 2021

"Finally, some real light to brighten our respective mornings. We may have to wait until 12th April to know more precisely how international travel will play its part in this ‘road to release’, but that doesn’t stop us from making plans now. And with demand already on the increase for flights and hotels, I do urge you not to delay.

I am actually writing this from Lamu Island, one stop on a quick visit to Kenya to see for myself how things really are. Well, they’re pretty much normal. No issues at all since I left London, sensible but unobtrusive precautions in public places, and Lamu itself full of international travellers having the time of their lives.

At the same time, I do understand that you might still be cautious about committing to a future holiday. So, to bolster your confidence:

  • Until the end of March, we will not ask you for a deposit to confirm a holiday for travel up to 15th December 2021. Just full and final payment 10 weeks prior to your departure date.
  • If for whatever reason we are then unable to deliver your holiday, you can either postpone it or receive a full cash refund.

So your money is entirely safe and fully protected by our bonds and licences.

I look forward to hearing from you!

With best wishes,
