A Luxury & Personal Experience

Strawberry Holidays is a Lancashire-based Mobile Personal Travel Consultancy. It was set up by me, Kate Holroyd in 2016.  I believe that travel is fun and stress free and with the right planning and advice it will be.

I don’t have a shop or an office for a Blackburn travel agency. This means I can meet my clients on your terms. At your home, at your local coffee shop, at a time that suits you. I don’t work office hours, so am available for longer hours.

Acting as your own personal travel assistant I’ll inspire you with great travel ideas and create the perfect itinerary. Then I’ll make all the flight and accommodation arrangements, on your behalf, in addition to providing advice on visas, vaccinations, currency and all the other little things that often get forgotten.

I’ve travelled extensively for the last 15 years and have first hand experience of many of the best places in the world. My mission is to share my experiences with you, but with all the wrinkles ironed out, so that your trip is perfect from start to finish.

Call Strawberry Holidays and you’re speaking to a local, Lancashire, small business but with the gravitas of a big travel company. Our relationships within the travel industry means we have thousands of accommodation suppliers and hundreds of airlines, tour operators, cruise lines and more. All this is at our finger tips to find our clients the best possible options for your holidays.

Expert Consultation

My exceptional level of service means you will speak to a personal travel planner from your first call right the way through to welcoming you home. I believe in building relationships with my clients so that I better understand your needs and wants when it comes to those precious travel moments. Find out more.

For some travelling solo is a necessity, for some it’s difficult, for others it’s freeing. Some people end up there accidentally, others on purpose. There are so many reasons people travel on their own and many wouldn’t change a thing. (Apart from maybe the single supplement charges!)

How freeing it is to only please oneself. In our ordinary lives there are obligations, must-do’s, must see’s. A constant stream of demands on our time and energy. When travelling solo, this dissipates. There’s only one person you answer to and that’s your inner voice. And if you listen carefully, you agree with every word.

Holiday Companions Club
A number of online social meet ups and groups of solo travellers who are looking for holiday companionship in all forms. We take a flexible approach to travel and the groups and you can find them on Facebook,, Instagram & Twitter.

Cruise holidays are co-founder Kate’s favourite type of holiday. She says…
“There’s nothing like a cruise for a fantastic holiday, there is so much variety both on-board and with all the different places you visit on the itinerary. We cruise as a family and love to wake up somewhere different everyday and explore the new.

“Anyone who says they don’t think cruise is for them is missing out, there are ships and cruise lines to suit everyone, from the ultra-luxurious Regent, Seabourn and alike to the family-orientated Norwegian Cruise Line (a personal favourite) and the mega-ships of Royal Caribbean.”

If you’re willing to give it a try, call Kate and she will help you navigate your way to a cruise to suit you.
