About ASA

ASA has grown organically for over 40 years from the passion & vision of one person to the reality of today’s extended ASA “family”.  We remain a proudly independent company, always looking forward. Developing new markets and strengthening existing partnerships, but never forgetting the heritage & values core to our company ethos.  With our expertise in the industry and our continued investment in people & IT, we offer a complete travel solution across the British Isles.

With an emphasis on static FIT rates, ASA contracts directly with our hotel partners.  Drawing from a mix of international chains, regional hotel groups and independent properties, we offer a desirable and flexible range of accommodation options in the 3 to 5 star categories.  City centre locations with essential properties for brochure programmes sit alongside rural out-of-town locations more suited to bespoke tailor-made itineraries.  The portfolio is constantly growing and we currently contract over 800 properties across the country, supporting a wide range of international partners selling the UK & Ireland.

To complement this we contract an extensive network of trusted and reliable ground services covering point to point private & shared transfers, shared sightseeing tours including a range of ever popular “small group tour” options as well as private guiding and extended bespoke touring services.  Completing the experience we are registered suppliers for top attractions, experiences & sporting events, the latest West-End musicals & Eurostar tickets.

"We’ve had the extreme pleasure of being partners with ASA for several years, and would never have been able to develop and grow our business to the UK (as well as to France now, with Flying Europe) without their incredible support, superior service and comprehensive product portfolio. We rely very heavily on ASA for their outstanding destination expertise, excellent understanding of the North American market, wide range of both standard and unique products, quick response times, unparalleled customer service, and willingness to always go the extra mile for us….and on top of everything else, each and every member of their dedicated and professional team is a pleasure to work with!"
