Virgin Holidays and Holiday Gems – the Difference

You’ll have almost certainly heard of Virgin Holidays, the tour operator founded by tycoon, Richard Branson. But just what are the differences between booking with Virgin Holidays and with us? Let us clear it up…

Virgin Holidays Operates its own Flights

The main difference you’ll notice booking with Virgin Holidays is that the flights you are offered are typically Virgin Flights. Makes sense, of course, for the company to put its holidaymakers on its own flights.

However, if you’re going to a destination that has multiple airlines flying frequently from major UK airports, what you may find is that flights from another airline are more convenient for you. Perhaps they’re on more convenient days or just at more convenient times of the day.

Booking with Holiday Gems means you have the option of a whole host of different airlines for the flight aspect of your holiday. This gives you the flexibility to choose flights that are either the most cost effective or that are just that little bit more convenient for you.

Book a holiday with us and your holiday will be great value and ATOL bonded too! And you’ll deal directly with us from the moment you find your holiday to the second you touch back down in the UK at the other side of your break.
