The Little Blue Collection
This year, many of our clients and some of our employees welcomed the pitter patter of tiny feet this year! Little Angus Bell, Josh Harries, and Isabel Matthews have all joined the Turquoise family. Inspired by our children and by the many clients who joined us as honeymooners and return as families, we’ve launched the Little Blue Programme designed especially for families. These programmes include daytime flights, chauffeur driven cars between your home and the airport, beautiful hotels who love kids combined with fabulous kids’ clubs. We are here to help take the strain out of booking a family holiday. For expert advice, call our dedicated Little Blue team, all of whom have kids and understand the important of getting that family holiday right.
We’re excited to continue to grow as a company in 2011 and we hope you’ll join us. Keep up with our blog for all the latest news on the company, our amazing range of destinations, and travel info of all kinds.
