About Us

Westoe Travel is an award winning family owned Independent business based in South Shields, Tyne Wear. We have established this business from scratch starting as a desk in the back of the family newsagents over 26 years ago to now being the biggest retail travel agent in the UK for the sale of UK holidays and breaks. This has been achieved while maintaining excellence in customer services and ‘the family business that cares’ ethos. We have competed against and overtaken multiple travel agents both in terms of sales of UK products and more importantly in customer service. We have also been accepted as members of AITO Specialist Travel Agents, giving us the ability to sell over 100 tour operators products not available in most High Street Travel Agents.

Westoe Travel are also members of ABTA (membership number L4746). Please ask us about the protection that applies to your booking.

Westoe Travel is not aligned with any particular tour operator, therefore you will find that we provide a truly impartial holiday service that suits your individual needs. In the interests of consumer protection all ABTA members, including Westoe Travel, are fully bonded. We are members of the Advantage Travel Partnership to enable us to obtain better commercial deals for our customers and for the provision of technical support. We retain our independence.

Company Profile

We provide a comprehensive range of travel services, including holidays, flights, hotels, insurance, car hire, cruises and late holidays, airport parking and airport lounges. We also specialise in UK breaks, Canadian, USA, Australian and New Zealand holidays. We are also officially appointed agents for the issue of rail tickets.

We offer an independent and impartial travel service tailored to your individual needs.
