Pettitts 30th anniversary

Founded in 1988 by Steven Pettitt and Nigel Berry, Pettitts Travel pioneered the concept of tailor-made travel by car in India. Soon their clients were asking them to offer this arrangement in other countries and so the fascinating journey of Pettitts Travel began.

The same year as Pettitts Travel began, another local travel company, CT Travel Group, was founded by local entrepreneur, Mark Kempster, which included the leisure brands Packyourbags Travel and a little later on, Medway Leisure Travel. These two brands ran alongside one another for several years, providing their loyal clients with holidays across the globe catering for all travel types such as luxury beach, city and opera breaks, road trips, safaris, cruises and tailor-made travel. In 2015, Pettitts Travel also became part of CT Travel Group.

Today, Pettitts Travel is the sole leisure brand of CT Travel Group, having merged with Packyourbags Travel and Medway Leisure Travel. It remains independent, offering a wide range of destinations and holiday collections, with a team of travel specialists, based in its offices in Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone, Delhi and Kochi (Cochin). By combining a client's ideas with the knowledge and experience of our staff, we create a unique itinerary tailored exactly to their requirements, featuring imaginative and authentic ideas that really do unlock the magic of these wonderful countries.

The existing team of all three brands have come together and the names you have become familiar with over the years remain with Pettitts Travel, with Mark Kempster heading up the Group as CEO, marking a fantastic milestone in both company’s 30 year history.

We understand that no two clients are the same and we go to great lengths to ensure that each itinerary suits their individuality and their style of travel. We know our destinations well and we have the experience to be able to suggest areas and activities that will enhance their experience. We believe that each holiday with Pettitts Travel should create lasting and positive memories and have been very fortunate to enjoy enthusiastic and loyal clientele  for over 30 years... and counting!

We welcome enquiries online, over the telephone or in person at our offices.
