“A travel agent today needs to have the knowledge and maturity to help one in different cities and locations. Quay Travel has certainly done that for me... offering excellent advice on such diverse locations as the Maldives to downtown New York! Having travelled extensively for 35 years on business and for pleasure I am more than happy with Quay Travel’s levels of service and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to other travellers.”
