We asked Jo to arrange an amazing all inclusive trip to the Maldives - a real lifelong dream. We just returned and I can honestly say that she found us a complete gem. Amazing location, incredible food and accommodation, fantastic staff and everything was picture perfect. Jo went out of her way to find us exactly what we wanted and did everything for us except actually travel! I couldn’t recommend Jo more highly - she is fantastic!!

We booked our holiday to the Philippines through Jo and her company and it was fantastic. She looked after everything and found exactly what we were looking for! The holiday now rates as one of our best holidays!! A first rate service with great knowledge and recommendations, we thoroughly recommend using Jo to book your next adventure!

The personal touches that Jo provides is next to none. She listened to my brief and provided a fantastic holiday, the best we have had, the best hotel we have stayed in and completely stress free from idea concept to getting back home. Thank you Jo

I travelled to Mallorca in early October this year with my wife and two young girls, which was booked with Jo and Not Just Travel.

I've booked many holidays myself in the past and what was to say I couldn't do the same again this year?

If I'd have booked this alone it would have involved so much research and hours spent on the web searching, sifting through reviews and hoping your holiday selections are right! There is no fun in that and I just don't have the time to do this anymore. So I used Jo to see if she could put forward any recommendation given this would be the first with two young children and she delivered some excellent choices that ticked so many boxes such as great flight times, excellent hotel choices and destination ideas.

The hotel which I decided upon was Protur Bonaire Aparthotel and I'd have struggled to find this myself. It ticked all the boxes such as great price, excellent all inclusive dining, apartment style rooms which are ideal for families, fantastic entertainment and value for money.

Jo really listens and understands her customers needs to tailor a package and her in depth knowledge on destinations, resorts and hotels is fabulous as navigating this alone can sometimes be overwhelming!

Jo didn't just stop at finding me this great hotel, but also took care of the admin side of things and filled in all my details into the bookings for the hotel and flights. She even checked us in 24hrs before the outbound and inbound flights and gave me her number so we could contact her directly if anything went wrong whilst we were away.

I'd highly recommend Jo to anyone planning their next holiday I know I'll be speaking with her soon when it comes to booking my next trip.

Thank you Jo for helping me and my family have such a fabulous holiday full of great memories. Keep up the good work.

We have just come back from a lovely holiday in Greece. Jo found places I would not have found! The holiday was just what we wanted and the hotel was lovely. The process was completely stress free, I will be using Jo for future holidays and highly recommend.

A huge thank you to Jo for sorting out our perfect family holiday.
We went to Jo without an idea of where we wanted to go but did have a budget to stick to. (so probably not the easiest of customers) but.. The hotel Jo found us was absolutely perfect for us and we had the best week in Bulgaria (somewhere we hadn't even considered)
The whole process with Jo was easy and stress free and we knew she was at the end of the phone if we needed her.
Thank you so much.
Highly recommend Not Just Travel - Jo Hyder.

Louise Boakes (20th Aug 2019)

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Cape Verde, which Jo Hyder sorted out for us. The process was so easy, and she found us the perfect hotel for our needs. Everything was just as we wanted it and would highly recommend Jo. We will be using her for our next holiday !

Rafael McDonnell (05th Aug 2019)

Just returned from a fabulous weekend away for my mums birthday, we were a large group and many thanks to Jo for finding the perfect place, stunning scenery and lots to do for all ages with perfect accommodation I can’t recommend enough.

Lisa Tobin (30th Jul 2019)

Jo helped to make my holiday to New Zealand this year incredibly special. From the moment we connected, she worked tirelessly to create the perfect itinerary - taking on board all our various needs and providing us with a bespoke day by day plan that took all the hassle and stress out of the planning. I cannot wait to book my next holiday with her - thank you Jo 

Charlie Humphries (09th Jul 2019)

After being let down and extremely disappointed by our on line holiday provider today for our family holiday I was introduced to Jo at Not Just Travel who swiftly looked into options and has come up with a far better holiday than we previously booked and right on budget, Couldn't be happier, now to look forward to Our luxury holiday.
Happy Customer.

Paul Boakes (27th Jun 2019)

Jo is very helpful, proactive and has so many great travel options to suit all budgets and dream destinations. I highly recommend Jo, get in touch for great ideas and expert advice.

Mark Elwell (17th May 2019)

Here I am on OUR family’s version of a perfect holiday.
For the first time in 11 years of marriage we’ve booked a holiday without a crossed word and actually had time to look forward to it because all the never ending internet comparisons were taken care of by Jo.... and even better still our August break is taken care of already too so nothing but happy thoughts about holidays for us!
Our holidays are unadventurous and European, but we have over the years developed a long list of ideals, we handed this over to Jo and she’s simply been lovely, solved the problem, and double checked everything for us. 100% recommend the super lovely, super stress free holiday booking through Jo.

Ruth Birley (15th Apr 2019)

I just booked a Devon holiday home with Not Just Travel for August. Jo responded very quickly to my email and came up with a number of options which fit our requirements despite us leaving it a bit late in the day to book somewhere in the school holidays!

Once we made a decision Jo also responded very quickly and made the booking process very straightforward. I would highly recommend her and would not hesitate to use her again.

Vicky Whitmore (02nd Apr 2019)

Extremely helpful, met our brief and saved us so much time. Will use Jo whenever we are thinking of travelling.

Mandy Humphrey (29th Jan 2019)

Meticulous with detail, rest assured that Jo will have everything covered.
