We've been seeing the world differently since 1984

We create holidays that are as individual as you are. And we’ve been doing it for 40 years, crafting each and every holiday using our in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm for our destinations. Whatever your brief, we’ll create an amazing trip for you to get excited about. That might mean adapting one of our existing itineraries or we’ll build you one from scratch.

And to mark our 40th anniversary, we’re delighted to have launched our Education Bursary Fund to help disadvantaged school children experience the wonders of Iceland, Italy, the Azores and beyond. A percentage of revenue from every holiday you book with Discover the World will go into the bursary fund to pay, in full, for 40 students to join one of our school trips abroad.
