So happy I booked my trip to Asia with STA Travel. They helped me plan my whole route and made everything so easy and stress free. All the girls were so lovely and I appreciated all their destination knowledge. Cant wait to plan my next adventure!

Trip of a life time. Me and my friend wanted to go traveling for the first time and couldn't have had a better trip. Thailand, Cambodia, Loas and Vietnam. So easily organised. The girls in store were so knowledgeable with most travelling where we wanted to go; so they did everything to a t. Can't wait to book our next trip!

Trailfinders Belfast

47 Fountain St, Belfast BT1 5EB, UK – 028 9027 1888

Absolutely brilliant service from Adele. So patient and full of knowledge about our proposed itinerary. Would have given 5 stars but for the lack of tea or coffee or even water! Given that most customers are there for quite some time discussing their travel plans we just could not believe the absence of such a basi service found almost anywhere these days! Come on Trailfinders get your act together for your clients and staff!

The staff could not have been more professional or helpful. They had lots of ideas and tips for our trip that we would never have thought of. 10 out of 10. Would highly recommend Trailfinders to all my family and friends.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!
