Horncastle Executive Travel

Group Travel

"a number of persons considered as a collective unit, an entity in themselves"

Group Travel is diverse and complex for both the leisure and corporate traveller. Care and attention to detail is paramount in ensuring travel plans for the group run smoothly and trouble free, resulting in a memorable experience for the traveller.

At Horncastle Travel, you will find group travel experts with over 40 years’ experience in arranging travel for high profile groups - a skill we have developed over the years, to a fine art. Any group of nine or more passengers travelling together by air or rail can take advantage of our preferential rates with our suppliers. In any event, we would negotiate the best rates for your group, including the combination of scheduled and low cost carriers.

We have particular expertise in arranging trips for schools, colleges and universities although we arrange tailor-made itineraries for a wide range of group travel, including Weddings and Honeymoons.

Some of the Groups managed on a regular basis by Horncastle include:

Horncastle negotiated group fares with the airline and secured discounted rates at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for this group. We also arranged transfers and visas. Following the success of this trip, Horncastle manages the Cairo group, and now also Calcutta, on a regular basis.

Here, we arrange trips for both students and teachers of a well known college to various parts of Europe, for studying purposes. These trips involve ensuring all the group travels together on the same flights and shares the same standard of accommodation, making the trip more cost effective. Efficient management of constant and inevitable changes are all part of the service we offer.

This trip was organised for school children, aged 11 -15, and teachers for a 3-day trip to London to perform at the Royal Albert Hall. We sourced the best rail fares with pre-booked seating, a central hotel, arranged all the coach transfers to and from the station and events, booked restaurants and London Eye tickets.

For this group, Horncastle arranged hotels and transportation along with pre booked excess baggage to accommodate skis and ski-boards.

Essentially, we offer a complete Group booking service with the ability and expertise to efficiently co-ordinate the transportation of large numbers of travellers from different parts of the UK to conventions, conferences and exhibitions all over the world.

Our Service to You Includes:

Our team will listen to your requirements, advise you on your options and create an exciting and original itinerary within your set budget. We can arrange group travel for all modes of transport and types of accommodation and assist with passport and visa applications. We can also help to promote your trip by designing promotional leaflets and itineraries.

It is a basic fact that groups of people travelling together multiply the need for last minute changes, cancellations and unforeseen emergencies. Horncastle is on hand to help 24/7, every day of the year, no matter where you are in the world. We also keep your group leader up to date with the latest travel alerts and advice that may be important to you.

Financial Security
Horncastle is an independent company and therefore, our prime concern is to our customer. We work closely with a great number of airlines, including low cost carriers, hoteliers and suppliers and therefore have the ability to put components together as a package, which grants you full financial protection under our ATOL licence, (Air Travel Organisors Licence.)

We look forward to helping you plan and organise your next group.


Our trustees met today and wanted to thank you for all the help you’ve given us on the trip arrangements with Ethiopian Airlines over the past couple of years. Thank you so much!!

Since dealing with Horncastle Executive Travel,  I have always been greeted with politeness and professionalism. I can honestly say that never,ever,have I encountered such exceptionally good service as your agency provides. Especially these days, where we are often treated like a number, first-class service is hard to come by.
Not only did NS pay attention to my travel requests and advise me of my various options, but it is obvious that she is extremely well-versed in the travel industry and had “done her homework", so to speak. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I am simply astounded by the knowledge, professionalism, efficiency and overall excellent customer service - with a "personal touch" - provided by your staff, and NS in particular.I have already recommended your agency to my family members, several of my friends as well as some of my business associates, and I will continue to do so.
