The Group Organiser can have as much or as little input as they wish with regard to their tailor-made group holiday itinerary and tour inclusions.
Our aim is for you to feel 100% confident with us there to help you at all times. We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your Simply Groups holiday experience, safe in the knowledge that you are in expert hands.
Here are some points explaining how we make things as easy as possible for our Group Organisers:-
All our group tours are tailor-made to your group’s exact requirements.
- Personalised service
With no aspirations of growing into a large and impersonal company, you can be sure to speak to a professional and friendly team member who is knowledgeable and experienced in the world of travel.
- Prompt turnaround
From your initial request, to us providing a quotation and sample itinerary, we strive to ensure a quick turnaround.
- Free places
These are offered with the majority holidays, subject to minimum numbers.
- Trouble free booking
Which-ever way your group likes to book, we will handle payments, booking forms, coach plans and paperwork, in a way that best suits you.
- Personalised promotional material
We provide personal flyers to assist in promoting your holiday along with booking forms, which reduce your administration and provide us with passengers’ requirements.
- Comprehensive travel packs
Pre-departure we provide for every passenger a comprehensive travel pack. This will contain details of all aspects of the holiday so that you are well informed.
- Group Organiser Liability Insurance *an added bonus for our clients *
We offer our Group Organisers inclusive liability insurance with all group tours booked through us. For more information please click here
- Financial security
To provide protection for all money our customers send us, we operate a 'client trust account' which is overseen by independent trustees. This money is ring-fenced and in the unlikely event of the company failure, the money held in this account would be administered by the trustees and returned to the group organiser to be distributed to their group. Simply Groups do not have access to this money until the return of the tour except in exceptional pre-agreed circumstances, protecting fully your payments and ensuring we operate within the strict EU regulations.
Simply Groups are pleased to offer personalised 'Group Presentations' to assist in the promotion of your chosen destination.
Alternatively, we can offer a generic presentation to help choose a holiday to suit your group. For further information contact Simply Groups on 01943 605999 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for organising our weekend Gardens visit so superbly. Everything was spot on, the hotel was excellent, food and staff great and the gardens were out of this world. The tea and cake breaks were greatly appreciated by our members and everyone was impressed with the detailed information they received prior to the trip. Everyone who contacted your office personally said how helpful the staff had been and as organisers that was also our experience. We would certainly use Simply Groups again.

I want to thank you for the thoroughly enjoyable trip we had to Jersey. Despite the slightly uncooperative weather we had a brilliant few days although all the superb food has meant substantial weight gains which we now have to eliminate. I must say that Jersey is a very surprising place to visit and far more interesting than expected. The history of the island of particularly appealed to me and I'm looking forward to having time to investigate a little more. Once again many thanks for a super trip and we look forward to returning with our group next year.

Just a note to say : How excellent our trip to Yorkshire was. Everything was perfect and your suggestions for our itinerary made this a superb holiday. Our coach driver was lovely in every way and was always on hand to help some ladies who are not so agile. The positive comments I have received from all of the group makes all of our efforts worth while. I wanted to share this praise with you, as without Simply Groups this holiday would not have happened.

I would like to thank all of the Simply Groups team for the excellent job in arranging our recent U3A Jersey holiday. We were very pleased with every aspect of the holiday. The hotel was excellent and the mini coach drivers were always prompt. The guides at Elizabeth Castle made the visit very interesting, especially seeing the men in our party marching to fire the cannon!! I would especially like to thank your office team, each one playing their part to ensure a ‘smooth ride’ for me. All in all, Simply Groups did us proud and I look forward to booking our next group holiday with you.

Our trip to Strasbourg was so interesting and extremely well organised. Thank you for pointing out to us regarding the substantial refund we could claim as a result of visiting the Parliament within our package. Everyone was amazed when I was given a wad of cash in a brown envelope after the visit, to hand back to everyone ! Thank you also for finding such a mixture of visits which were both interesting and unexpected. All in all, you did us proud. Thank you to everyone at Simply Groups for all the hard work and help through the whole process.

Thanks to you all for a really great trip to Belgium and all the detailed advanced planning by Simply Groups and the superb travel packs everyone received. I never realised that the South of Belgium was so interesting! Waterloo was the highlight for many and the Amaryllis Festival was truly stunning and a lovely finale to our trip. Our coach driver was excellent, always courteous and professional. Thanks again for all your expertise in arranging this trip and we look forward to the next group holiday with Simply Groups.

Our Normandy holiday, like all of our previous group tours with SG's, was extremely interesting, enjoyable and well organised. The varied excursions were interesting and appealed to everyone. Our guide for the Normandy Beaches was excellent and in our driver's capable hands, we travelled in comfort and felt safe at all times. We look forward to our next group holiday later in the year. Keep up the excellent work Simply Groups!!

A big 'thank you' to you, we have had a fantastic holiday in Valkenburg. The hotel was very friendly, spotless and very central. The food was the best we have ever had with more than enough to eat and a wide variety. The cruise on the river was excellent with delicious food and wine. You have worked a miracle. Our driver looked after us and we were all treated like V.I.P's, he is a real asset to your company.

Just a few lines to say the holiday was wonderful. Many of the members said during the holiday how much they were enjoying the variety and scope of the outings. The hotel was superb, beautifully clean, very good food, and the staff very helpful. And as for the coach driver he was excellent, some even said the best driver we have ever had. Well done to you all.

This is just to say thanks to all at Simply Groups for all that you did to make our trip PERFECT, even down to the weather, well perhaps you didn't have anything to with that! But you did do a brilliant job on the rest. I can say that as a GTO you will get more work from me, you made my job easy.

We had a most successful tour. The hotel was remarkably good: spacious rooms and great amenities. We all enjoyed the food which was always served professionally and with a smile. Our driver was exceptional. He did everything that was expected of him: helping with baggage, information on the journey and always with a friendly approach.
