I highly recommend Travel Gab as I have used this formidable company not once but four times in the last 18 months. At a stressful time relocating from SA to the UK during a pandemic Ilse was honestly incredible. Very professional, extremely efficient and great value for money. Nothing was too big or too small. I will not use any other agent - Sorry Ilse you stuck with me for life 🙂
