The Cox & Kings heritage
As the longest-established
travel company in the world (founded 1758), we have the experience to create
travel arrangements of the highest calibre.
We believe that expert knowledge and excellent service should
come as standard. Whether the planning of your holiday takes one phone call or
multiple discussions over many weeks, there is no additional cost to you for
our experts’ input. It is also our policy to keep our prices as low as
possible, to make high quality travel accessible to the largest number of
people we can.
This low price policy is made possible
through our buying power, which is generated by the combined influence of the

flights, hotels and ground services at highly competitive rates.

price between what, on the surface, are similar holidays. When comparing like
with like, we are confident that our holidays represent excellent value for
money when the number and quality of services included are taken into account.
