“Colpitts continually provide us with exceptional service which is demonstrated by the fact that, as a global company, we use them in all of our hub locations across the world. They strive to maintain a close working relationship with Xodus and have visited us in a few of our offices so that we can meet the staff we deal with on a daily basis. That personal touch is just one of many things that set Colpitts apart from other travel agencies. Professional, efficient, helpful, friendly and dedicated….the list goes on. We highly recommend them!”

“Colpitts turn around on requests is superb and the helpful polite manner in which it is delivered is very reassuring. We have many large group and individual requirements which are always dealt with clearly and on time. In the world of sport travel is often reactive so the urgency is unavoidable, something which does not at all trouble the staff at Colpitts.”

“Lots of companies prattle about partnership and service.

Stuck in Dubai at midnight with a missed flight at eight pm UK time, and having my call for help returned swiftly by a Colpitts staffer from the out of hours team, who sorted the problem out promptly and efficiently, is just one example of how these guys see partnership.

It would take a lot to make us change agent.”

“My travel demands are often complex, with multiple countries and airlines involved. Schedules frequently have to be married with those arranged by visiting colleagues from the US and Europe, and efficiency of time used while travelling is paramount. Colpitts meet these challenges with enthusiasm and dedication. They know enough about our business to be aware of when the preferred travel times are and understand our priorities. In addition the staff are friendly and constructive in their work.
They also cover and support each other well so no enquiry, problem or issue goes unanswered.”
