About Us

We are 50 and feeling fabulous!

This year we’ve got something to celebrate — our 50th birthday! Our very first Stewart Travel store opened in Prestwick, Ayrshire back in 1972.

At the time we were sending our first customers on holiday, the Ford Cortina was the best selling car in the country, Donny Osmond and David Cassidy were fighting it out in the music charts and The Godfather was packing out cinemas all over the nation. (And Cameron Diaz, Frankie Boyle, and Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell had all just been born!)

Spain, the Canary Islands, and Italy were the top holiday hotspots, with Benidorm the favourite by far. These are still some of the most popular destinations, but we are pleased to offer so much more choice today, with a whole world of exciting holidays on offer.

It’s always nice to look back, but our eyes are firmly fixed on the future as we look forward to helping many more people find their perfect holiday over the next 50 years!

To celebrate our milestone, we are offering an extra £50 saving on every holiday booked from now until 30 June, and a chance for you to win a £5,000 dream holiday. * Plus look out for special events and competitions in your local Stewart Travel store this summer.

Thank you for your support over the years. We look forward to seeing you in store soon!
