Virgin Holidays

We've been arranging holidays since 1985 and are the largest, most successful transatlantic tour operator, and market leader for travel to the USA and the Caribbean.
As well as USA and Caribbean we offer holidays to Canada, the Far East, South Africa, the Middle East, Indian Ocean, Mauritius, plus a well-established ski programme. 

We're passionate about creating the best holidays in the whole wide world and going that extra mile to make sure our customers get exactly what they want, the way they want it. 

We want you to raise the nation back to its full fabulousness. And laugh in the face of ordinary. Because when ordinary hangs around in airport queues, Virgin Holiday-goers chill in the v-room. When ordinary checks into ordinary hotels, Virgin Holiday-goers are checking out the hippest of the hip. When ordinary is doing all the usual holiday tours, Virgin Holiday-goers are experiencing something a little out of the ordinary. And when ordinary holidays are over too quickly, Virgin Holidays maximise the chill out, right to the very last minute.
