About Compass Holidays

Compass Holidays specialise in walking and cycling short breaks and holidays around the UK and Europe. Founded over 20 years ago, our vast expertise means we know how to plan holidays to highlight the very best the countryside has to offer. Compass has also just launched a series of bike & boat tours around some of Italy's most breathtaking coastline.

A unique and active holiday with Compass allows you to get under the skin of the history, culture and natural beauty of some of the UK and Europe's most iconic and stunning locations.

Not only this, Compass will organise your holiday for you so that you can sit back, relax and enjoy your time away. Simply choose your activity, destination, dates and numbers and leave the rest to us. Want to know more about the quality of our service? Here's what our clients have to say....

Win Your Christmas Tree This Year!

For the second year running we have decided to sell Christmas Trees, but for this year we have decided to add a twist! We are giving three lucky winners a chance to get their hands on a free, real Christmas Tree, as part of a random raffle with every tree purchased. We operate at Cheltenham Railway Station, and have attached random raffle tickets to every real Christmas Tree available to buy; the attached raffle ticket corresponds to a winning envelope, giving every customer a guaranteed prize. The top three prizes are Free, Premium Christmas Trees worth up to 120 each, and other prizes include bike hire, servicing discounts and much more*.

We are selling Nordman Fir trees, which are the most popular non-drop Christmas tree in the UK. The super-premium quality of the trees ensures excellent needle retention, with the correct care the trees should last the whole of December. The trees are available to buy now from as little as 40, delivery is available for a small charge depending on the location.

This year all trees will also have a raffle ticket attached; when a tree is purchased a corresponding envelope will reveal what each customer has won.

Speaking of the quality of the trees, Sue and Chris from The Bradley Hotel in Cheltenham who had a Christmas tree last year said 'The Bradley hotel has placed an order for two 10ft trees from Compass Holidays to showcase at their hotel this Christmas.

To find out more about all Christmas trees available or to order one please call 01242 250 642 or email info@compass-holidays.com.
