Welcome to Spitfire Travel we aim to provide you with the highest level of care so you have the perfect holiday and as always, ATOL protected to give you peace of mind.

Spitfire Travel was formed in 2007 to build on over 20 years experience in the field of coach and package holidays. In 2010 Spitfire Travel Shefford Limited, company registration number 7363365 was formed in order to become a member of The Global Travel Group Membership No M093X. Joining TGTG allows Spitfire Travel to retain its independence but offer a more competitive service.

We can offer you a full competitive service, be it the hotel room for an over-night stay, the family holiday,  honeymoon or group travel….

We can also offer products from over 100,000 hotels and villas, 300 airlines as well as all the UK’s leading tour operators such as Thomson, Royal Caribbean, Shearings, Kuoni to name but a few.


We are not restricted to one operator as are many High Street Travel agents, which are owned by the big tour operators. We can book you the holiday you choose or tailor make a holiday just for you. So wherever you want to go, or whatever you want to do Spitfire Travel can do it for you.

TGTG is the UK’s largest consortium of independent travel agents. The buying power of the Global Group means that individual members can access the most competitive flights, holidays, hotel rooms etc throughout the World. This allows Spitfire Travel to offer its clients the best possible deals.

As a member of TGTG every holiday we offer has the ATOL protection. ATOL is a government scheme which is designed to cover costs and make arrangements to return travellers in the event an airline or tour operator ceases to trade. Many airline tickets booked online are not protected by the ATOL agreement and therefore Spitfire Travel  offers Airline Failure Insurance with a flight only booking. This is especially important in the present world economic climate.

We offer plenty of destinations, including Europe, USA, and Exotic long haul tours, making it professional to provide better service.
