“Vanessa has been my trusted travel agent for several years. She is an invaluable member of my team, who works quickly, efficiently and with a frightening attention to detail! I can’t imagine putting a tour together without her.”
” I’d recommend Glide to any Tour Manager as they understand the nuances of touring better than any travel agent I’ve used. Their fees are competitive and I usually get quotes back the same day. On the rare occasion that I need something out of hours, I can always reach one of the team in minutes . ”
“As a tour manager in the music industry, the travel agent plays an important role. Aside from the great service and attention to detail Vanessa offers, her best attribute is she actually “gets it” and understands our clients needs and ensures they are delivered. Hence why I have used Vanessa personally since 2012 and long May that continue.”
“I have worked only with Vanessa, Anna, Jon, Dylan and the team for all my tours since being introduced to them in 2016. I love their personal service and nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend them to anyone.”
“After using most of the travel agents in the music industry whether big or small none of them come close to the service that Vanessa and her team provide at Glide lighting fast response time, great value and a really friendly personable approach are just some of my favourite qualities and I can finally say I’ve found a travel agent that works at the same pace as me and my business
slowly, I am bringing all my business over and even those artists, managers and tour managers I work with that were hesitant slowly realise why I use Glide and eventually say they wish they moved sooner.”
Production Management & Artist Relations
“Unlike a lot of the other travel agents able to handle major projects in the live music sector, Vanessa and her team manage to offer a service that doesn’t feel overly automated or impersonal, but yet still have the capacity and capabilities to deal with the largest of travel parties involving complex movements. This is further demonstrated by their impeccable relationships with hotels and airlines, where more “corporate” agencies have alienated themselves through hostile dealings Glides’ more human approach not only results in more choice for customers but also a smoother travel experience.”
“Just returned with Fat Freddy’s Drop after a 6 week European Tour, Jon MacDonald acted as our travel agent for the 15 band and crew in our touring party.
Every 3rd day was a day off and Jon surpassed himself by booking our party with limited budget into 5 star city centre hotels, which gave us quality time to unwind and recharge our batteries.
I’m using Jon again for our next Fat Freddy’s European tour and also the other acts I represent in the UK.
Cant fault it!”
Fat Freddy’s Drop
“I have worked with Anna for a few years now, testament to the great service I receive, often with last minute requests but always with the utmost of efficiency.”
“I have been using Jon MacDonald for the last 3 years on comedy and DJ tours around the UK. He always delivers on budget even on last minute bookings and always gone the extra mile to make sure we are looked after when we arrive at our hotels.”
“I can highly recommend Anna and her team at Glide. I have had the pleasure of using her services for many years now and she always comes through when it seems like it’s the impossible! She will get you the best price and route wherever you need to be in the World. She is very professional, but also very personable too. We love Anna at Glide and I can trust her to get the job done!”

“We have worked with Anna now for quite a few years .. she’s thoroughly efficient, responds quickly and is a joy to work with. She is always contactable and nothing is ever too much. Which is helpful as I often have to change my requests last minute!”
Artist Manager & Senior Partner
“Just a very quick email to say thank you very much for all the help you were able to provide for Kat & Silas and the rest of the team with regard to all the travel & hotel provision through the Kerry Ellis & Brian May tour through Italy and Eastern Europe. I think you and Glide & Protravel provided a great service throughout.”
Phil McIntyre Entertainments Ltd.
“Glide Travel’s understanding of the music industry, their availability outside of office hours and flexibility make them one of the best travel agencies in the UK and an industry favorite.”
“Anna and the whole team at Glide are a pleasure to work with. Whether it’s a simple hotel room booking or a full 15 person tour, there is no task too big or too small. Every request is dealt with efficiently and in the most professional manner and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
“Travel and logistics is at the heart of my job as booking agent to 20 busy DJs and live acts playing across the globe. Thanks to a long and harmonious working relationship with Glide Travel my artists / clients have always had a first class service provided to them. Which within the Entertainment Industry is very important.
We have presented a broad and often complex range of travel and hotel requests to Glide and have never been disappointed with the level of precision and breadth of search that is offered. The benefits of having highly competent and industry savvy travel agents working on our travel solutions have, always been so numerous that they are an indispensable part of our business.
As an independent booking agency ourselves, we value working with a like-minded independent company that has the small boutique feel but the fire power of one of the big guns. Annie, Vanessa and Jon are friendly and warm and work tirelessly around the clock to keep our clients happy. After working with many travel agents we can safely say, they are the best.”
“My company and I have used the services of Anna and team from 2010 until today; I could not recommend a more efficient and accommodating corporate travel agency than Glide. The personal touch you receive from Anna and Vanessa makes the whole experience much easier and pain free, especially when booking for multiple senior executives with demanding schedules and multi-city trips all over the world. Anna and Vanessa are highly professional, contactable at any time to resolve any issues and this personal and caring touch is why I have stayed with them for nearly 6 years now and whilst Glide Travel was formed.
Their prices for flights are always competitive and hotel contacts / relationships also ensure they can obtain competitive prices as well as superb service when staying in such hotels due to their relationships with the hotels. They can also facilitate visas for foreign travel, train travel and corporate events.
I would not anticipate changing my corporate travel provider in the future, the service from Glide would take a lot of beating.”
