About our company
Inspired By Asia and Inspired By Australasia are a holiday and tour company specialising in affordable luxury holidays to the Far East & Australasia. We are ABTA and ATOL bonded and offer complete peace of mind with your travel arrangements. Let us tailor-make the perfect luxury holiday tour for you, but at an affordable price.
We are real experts in Far East & Australasia Holidays
When it comes to choosing and planning your Far East or Australasia holiday, you need to deal with people who know the destination inside out. At inspired by Australasia & Asia we have in-depth expertise that makes all the difference. Our team has travelled extensively throughout the region to ensure you receive first-hand advice, suggestions and tips from those who have really “been there and done that.”
We can tailor-make your holiday exactly to suit you
Our brochures and website contain a wealth of possibilities, but don’t feel you need to limit your choice to what we feature, because everything is flexible – that’s the beauty of our tailor-made service. Simply tell us where you’d like to go, and what you’d like to do, and we’ll make it happen. Alternatively, if you can’t decide, or if you’d like us to help you out with ideas and inspiration – then we’ll be happy to oblige.
We'll offer support throughout your holiday
Our service doesn’t end once you’ve left for your holiday, because we’ll be there for you, if we’re needed, throughout your stay. Should anything go wrong, you’ll have peace of mind to know that we’ll be rapidly contactable, via our local representative or via your travel agent, to put things right.
We can organise all your flights
All of our holidays begin and end with a flight. So it’s vital that all of the arrangements work and that the airline matches or exceeds your expectations. Inspired by Australasia & Asia only work with quality scheduled airlines with a proven record in customer satisfaction ad the flexibility to cope with complex and unusual itineraries.
We are fully bonded to give you peace of mind
You can rest assured that the air holidays and flights in our brochures are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority under ATOL 4067, and for holidays which do not include air travel, your financial protection is administered by ABTA number Y6458.
Your Financial Protection
When you buy an ATOL protected flight or flight inclusive holiday from us you will receive an ATOL Certificate. This lists what is financially protected, where you can get information on what this means for you and who to contact if things go wrong.
Each country has it’s own method for rating a hotel, making it difficult to provide a classification. Therefore we have rated the hotels ourselves. This is based on our personal hotel inspections and the advice of our locally-based representatives. We have only chosen what we consider to be four and five star properties, ranging from hotels that can be described as good value for money with superior standards, to world-class, luxurious resorts of the highest quality.
Hotel refurbishments and renovations
Every hotel will, from time to time, have to take steps to maintain its rooms and facilities. We will do our utmost to bring any such work due to take place, to your attention, as soon as we are notified.
Hotel special offers
The Far East and Australasia are great regions for special offers. During low and shoulder seasons we have negotiated some exciting deals, such as free nights and free room upgrades, with many shown throughout our brochures and website.
If you have dietary requirements, a disability we need to be aware of, or simply have a preference such as a low-floor room, please let us know at the time of booking. We will pass on your requirements to the relevant hotels and tour companies.
Passports, visas and health
Most destinations require that you have at least six months remaining on your full passport and, if required a visa. For visas we recommend the Travel Visa Company. Call 01270 250 590 or visit their website here For vaccination requirements or recommendations please contact your doctor. It is your responsibility to satisfy these requirements.
Weddings & Honeymoons
We can arrange your wedding in Australasia or the Far East. There are some superb locations and resorts to choose from. Using the hotel’s own wedding planner and our local representative, we can check every detail to make it a perfect event. Most of the hotels featured have honeymoon offers, too many to list here. Please contact us here for further details.
Prices in our brochures and website do not include flights, unless specifically stated in the inclusions of some touring products. We are specialists in organising flights to fit in with tailor-made itineraries and can secure some exceptional deals with many of the leading carriers to Australasia and the Far East. While many people these days prefer to book their own flights online, we do warn clients that tickets bought this way can be inflexible if you need to make changes. Booking your flights through Inspired by Australasia & Asia is likely to prove cheaper and a far more flexible option.
Where possible, we have provided private transfers for you. This means that when you arrive at the airport you will be met by our local representative and transferred directly to your accommodation.
It is essential that you have adequate travel insurance, and we strongly recommend that you arrange this with your travel agent, at the time of booking.
