About Us


We're Travel Chapter, a market leader in self-catering holidays.

At Travel Chapter, people are at the centre of everything we do and we know that success doesn’t happen by itself; it takes a great bunch of diversely talented individuals working together to create something brilliant - and that’s precisely what we’ve got.

Having evolved from a small holiday letting agency in the South West to a UK network of travel brands, we pride ourselves on delivering the very best service to our customers and property owners alike. Along the way, we’ve nurtured a caring and collaborative culture that drives us forward and keeps our team inspired and motivated every day. We are passionate about what we do and we like to have fun whilst doing it. We take a common-sense approach to getting things done. We do get things wrong at times but that’s ok! We learn from it and adapt—remembering to stay curious and never stop evolving.
