REVOLUTIONARY LGBT TRAVEL COMPANY OUTOFOFFICE.COM LAUNCHES
Industry: Travel Agents       

OutOfOffice.com is a new tailor-made travel company

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - December 1st, 2015 -

World’s first tailor-made travel company for the LGBT market launches

EMBARGOED UNTIL 0001 1st December 2015

LONDON (1st December 2015) - The world’s first mainstream travel company to cater to the LGBT market and use photos of gay and lesbian couples alongside their straight counterparts has launched today. OutOfOffice.com will create tailor-made experiences and holidays, all of which are gay friendly, allowing customers to design their perfect holiday safe in the knowledge that the trip is suitable for them.

The company, headquartered in London, features over 100 original itineraries on its website and only works with suppliers it has verified as gay friendly and welcoming. OutOfOffice.com offers experiences as diverse as trips to the Galapagos, the Northern Lights, Machu Picchu, a South African safari or cultural trips around Cambodia, India and Thailand - all of which have been built from the ground up to ensure they can be enjoyed by all travellers regardless of their sexual orientation. The company will also cater to more traditional destinations such as Mykonos, Ibiza and Tel Aviv as well as the cruise market.

Founded by former ITV News journalist Darren Burn, in partnership with Ross Marshall and Andrew Harding who previously launched Your Golf Travel and Spabreaks.com, the site came about as a result of Burn submitting his pitch for a new travel business to a competition in the British Airways’ Business Life magazine.

Burn said: “For years I’ve seen travel websites and companies neglect the LGBT market, especially in the marketing and photos they use. I never felt that anything catered for the kind of holiday I wanted to go on - one where I can immerse myself in a destination, experience it in full but also safe in the knowledge that all the people I’m handing my cash to are welcoming to gay travellers.”

He continues: “I want OutOfOffice.com to be the first port of call for gay travellers looking to experience something a little different to what’s been on offer previously. We’ve built some really innovative itineraries and can customise almost everything about a trip. Most of the destinations we cover are suitable for everyone, regardless of who you love, and in many instances we’re using trendier boutique hotels rather than large chains which adds a personal touch.”

Ross Marshall said: “'There is currently great social demand for this project within a clearly identified niche worth £6 billion a year in the UK and $85 billion in the US. OutOfOffice.com is the first dedicated on-line travel agency to cater specifically for this market place and with the legalisation of gay marriage in the UK and in many countries worldwide, there is great potential for us to lead the way in the gay honeymoon market.”

The site also provides up-to-date information on the LGBT laws in each country it covers to enable customers to make informed decisions on their travel choices.
