Let’s re-imagine how travel works
We love travel but we don’t love how the industry works. Commissions and hidden markups by travel agents and tour operators, mean you rarely get the best price.
We think there’s a better way to access the widest choice of travel and leisure products, at the lowest price possible, yet with all of the friendly knowledge, service and booking protection you expect. Every time, all the time.
Our mission is to help bring travel back in a way that works better for all. More value for travellers, creating more opportunities to travel, whilst offsetting our environmental impact as we explore.
How will it work
We'll be launching in September 2021, and for a small monthly subscription, members will be able to access the best possible rates for hotel rooms, property rental, car hire, cruises and a host of other travel services in the UK and abroad: without the limited choice and restrictions of many other travel portals.
Every booking will be commission-free, guaranteed. Members will also be awarded travel credit each month which can then be redeemed against future trips – delivering you even greater value and ensuring you need never pay full price again for your holiday.
Plus, membership will also give you access to an amazing range of lifestyle offers. To help support the UK leisure & hospitality industries we have secured a range of fantastic offers – from 2 for 1 dining at more than 6,000 restaurants across the UK, to discounts at cinemas, theme parks, theatres and golf courses.
We won't make any money selling holidays.
We'll use membership fees to cover our costs, meaning we can pass the full value of every discount back to club members. Removing costly layers, especially commission, further bridging the gap between travellers and great value travel experiences.
All backed by a price promise and booking protection. Try out our savings calculator to see how much you could save.
Why now and what do you get?
The travel, leisure, and hospitality industries have been hit hard during the pandemic. Together we have a chance to help bring travel back better. If you are anything like us, you will be itching to start living and exploring again – at home and abroad.

We will use the funds we raise through selling memberships to the 500 CLUB to bring Ultimate Travel Club to market in September 2021 and invest in marketing activities to ensure we grow our membership. Quite simply the more people that join, the better the deals and range of benefits we can secure for everyone.
Until then we will invest in building our online clubhouse – a place where our members can find and book travel and lifestyle benefits.
Together we can bring travel back, better.
We’re building a community of travel-minded souls, ready to create a brighter future for travel, for all.
The more our club grows, the better the discounts we can negotiate. Plus the more valuable benefits we can add.
And, through our partnership with Ecologi, we can use our collective power to reduce travel’s impact on the planet.
Planting trees with every membership each month, and funding projects for a sustainable future.
Together, we can go further.
The Ultimate Travel Club has been formed by a passionate group of experienced professionals who love travel, and love the industry, but know there’s a better way to get things moving again. The travel, leisure, and hospitality industries have been hit hard during the pandemic. Together we have a chance to help get them back on their feet.
We’ve formed UTC to provide all the choice a travel agent gives, but no hidden commissions and mark-ups. Our running costs will come from the subscriptions of like-minded people who want this transparency. And our promise is that we’ll beat all publicly-available prices, so our members never need to worry about whether they’ve got the best deal.
We’ve all got children and we want to be sure they have the same kind of opportunities to go on adventures, and discover different landscapes and cultures as we’ve had. And we want that for their kids too. That’s why we’ve partnered with Ecologi, who invest in carbon reduction and community projects, so we can use our collective power to reduce travel’s impact on the planet.
Between us we have well over 150 years of industry experience, in a range of disciplines, so our strengths combine to make a powerful team with a huge directory of contacts to help us on the journey. And we’ve all made personal investments into this community, because we believe this is how we can bring travel back better. Let’s go further – together.
We’d love you to join us on the journey!
