“I met Ace Travel at one of our networking events and enquired if they could help organise our first time group travel to an Expo in Cannes, France. It was a multi-tiered request that did not faze our dedicated account manager and from the very start they hand held us every step of the way.
Their professional, expertise and personal service delivered our travel requirements within budget and brief. I now use Ace Travel as my go to TMC and would not hesitate to recommend their impressive personal service”
