Our expertise

Tap into a select network of over 8,000 tour operators, leisure and corporate travel agencies across the UK and Ireland.

Godley Read’s unique interpersonal marketing approach is the fastest, most sustainable and cost effective way of ensuring that your product gets noticed, remembered and, most importantly, utilized. You’re justly proud of the reputation of your business. For this reason you aren’t about to take chances with its representation and marketing.

When you entrust your marketing operation to Godley Read you can be confident that you’re represented by a team that includes some of the most experienced and well-connected people within the travel industry in the UK and Ireland.

Our unique network

From the moment we begin working together, we’ll be building bridges to introduce your business to a who’s who of key decision makers: an enviable network of industry insiders that during our 30 years in the travel sector has developed into an 8,000-strong network of leading British and Irish tour operators and travel agencies.

Our unique relationships

We aren’t merely acquainted with our network; we enjoy strong, long lasting personal relationships with contacts at the highest levels, including owners, managing directors and financial directors - key players who will be interested in actively promoting your business.

Our strongest relationships exist at the top end of the spectrum, consisting of an elite group of some 500 of the very best travel companies.

Importantly, we also have a select City network of ‘movers and shakers’ - people operating outside of the mainstream travel industry who are trusted and empowered to influence buying decisions at the highest corporate levels, giving your exclusive product critical direct exposure to individuals with vast personal and corporate funds at their disposal.

We believe there’s no substitute for an ‘Eye to Eye’ meeting; this means we meet regularly with our elite group - face to face, and with a handshake to close an agreement. And when we recommend your product you can be confident that agents and tour operators are going to take notice, because they trust us not to waste their time with irrelevant products. We aren’t in the business of making false promises, and they know it.

It’s this consistent dialogue with our network that is at the heart of what we do. Because our aim always is to introduce your business to contacts that will develop into long term, lucrative business partners, our ambitions for you will far exceed a couple of quick sales. This all means you’ll be bypassing costly conventional hit and miss marketing channels. Instead you will benefit from our tried and tested very targeted approach.

Our unique portfolio

We represent at any one time in the UK and Ireland only a small and exclusive portfolio of Hotels, unique properties, Destination Management Companies, Tour Operators and Tourist Boards that are the best in their particular niche.

Finally…

Our reputation is built on results, not promises. If we agree to represent your business, rest assured it’s simply not in our interest to fail.

And remember…
