Your Passionate LGBTQ+ Travel Consultants
Sashay Away Travel launched at the end of 2019. Our motive was quite simple. As LGBTQ+ people who love to travel, we recognised the urgent need for a fully comprehensive service that would safely, conveniently arrange travel and luxury accommodation for LGBTQ+ people. We noticed that we were often asking the same questions when it came to travel - ‘do you know any queer friendly destinations?’, or ‘do you know any gay friendly hotels?’
It was evident from our own experiences as folks with a passion for travel that the industry was severely lacking in services catered exclusively to LGBTQ+ needs. We love the world we live in, but as anyone identifying as LGBTQ+ knows, it doesn’t always love us back. In launching Sashay Away Travel, we endeavoured to create a safe space for travel lovers to easily arrange travel across the world using our affiliate hotels in the Select Hotels Scheme.
We see ourselves as champions of LGBTQ+ rights. As such, we always go the extra mile to ensure your safety and comfort, and want to make sure you’re in-the-know about your travel destination’s culture and laws.
When it comes to travel, there’s nothing worse than faceless business interactions. As your trusted LGBTQ+ Travel Consultants, we spend time building relationships with our affiliate hotels, so that we know they are completely in line with our own values.
It’s a fast world we live in, and patience is a virtue. We don’t waste time. With Virtuoso, you can book quickly and securely. Likewise, if you have any queries, we’ll always get back to you ASAP.
The hotels we represent through Global Travel Collection are sophisticated, luxury accommodations in enviable locations. We don’t compromise on quality – we only work with the best of the best.
