We started The Independent Traveller in 1980 after returning to Britain . At that time – even before faxes were used – it was difficult for visitors from overseas to know how to find anything other than hotels, and communication was lengthy, expensive or non-existent. We even had American clients working in Nepal who were seven days ‘donkey ride’ from a phone, and British expats on a Pacific island who received post once every six weeks when the boat called. Many really wanted their own homes to rent for a short period, whether as tourists, ‘on leave’ or on business, so we found them what they needed, saving them time and money.
35 years later, Mary and Simon and their family are still running that same business with you, the customer, in mind.
Technology makes life easier than the old ‘donkey’ days ! We have a host of property owners still on our books who have been with us for many years, as well as new ones. We still have clients going back to the 80s, not to mention their children and friends. Over 80% of clients are repeat visitors.
We are continually travelling to view old and new properties, and clients give us continual useful feedback. So do ask more about any property or area, as one of us here can give you more information than a website can convey.
