Groups news - September 2017

Outdoor walking

The month ahead is a peak travel month for our groups team with 100 groups and 2,500 group members arriving to enjoy the more comfortable autumnal walking weather at our HF country houses. The majority are now filled to capacity but there is still limited opportunity to get away yourself this month if you aren’t travelling as a group. Look out for our ‘triple treat’ offer for all last minute departures during October. Why not treat yourself (three times) after all the hard work you’ve done this year!

If you haven’t yet registered and have a free day in your diary on the 12th October, there’s still time to plan a day out to visit the Group Leisure and Travel Show at the NEC. HF Holidays are finalists in FIVE categories at the awards night on 11th October this year, you’ll be first to know the results if you pop to stand 419. Keep your fingers crossed for us – we’ll update you next month if you can’t make it.

As ever there’s been lots going on in the last month so grab yourself a cuppa and read on!

Group stories

Having previously travelled to Norcia and Crete with HF Holidays, Group in Mallorcadiscover what John thought of his trip to Mallorca with his group...

"This was our third overseas trip and in many respects was our best. Your organisation was exemplary and what was greatly appreciated was your response to my comments about the aspect of 'no online seat booking with BA' which previously resulted in the group being scattered in odd seats around the plane. We were delighted to find that we, as a group, had a block of seats, which enabled us to sort things out ourselves. This also happened on the return journey.

The hotel was splendid in situation and facilities. I was slightly concerned in advance about buffet food (although others were not), but the quality, quantity and variety was excellent. In fact the main issue was to not overeat!!!

The walking was excellent and particularly day two and six were outstanding.

Both leaders were good, providing the right balance of skills and personalities. All in all a trip to be highly recommended, particularly when the weather is good.

Lots of stars therefore but from my perspective as group organiser, Stefania in the groups team was the brightest star!!! People thank me profusely for what I do but I am always telling them that the really hard work is done by your good selves!

Many thanks

John
