What our clients say...
“Jessica and her team are efficient, pro-active, enthusiastic and innovative. Their support and local knowledge has been invaluable and we have had some fantastic coverage in the region's leading luxury publications and national newspapers, as well as introductions to the who's who of the UAE, many of whom have now joined as members of The Hideaways Club.”
“As a boutique hotel in Sri Lanka, we realize the value of the market in the Middle East. To that end, Jessica Hudson has been invaluable. She has obtained us numerous articles and media coverage, which otherwise would have cost a great deal of money. In addition, she has acquired for us fantastic exposure at some high level events in the UAE, all of which has resulted in a sharp increase in the number of guests coming to us from that region. We could not have done this without Jessica’s professionalism and dedication.”
“Jessica seems to know all the right people in all the right places when it comes to the Middle East. We've had some excellent coverage in some of the best titles. She organises our sales & media trips with thought and precision and is a super networker. Jessica is always thinking of ways and people to push and promote The Safari collection to, even when shes technically off duty.”
“Jessica Hudson is not only a representative for us but more an extended part of the team. She is a great professional and over the year her and her team have successfully secured editorial coverage of Velaa in the Gulf region's leading luxury titles. The GCC is an important target market for us and we have seen a noticeable increase in bookings.”
What the media say...
“Jessica is our go-to girl for the ultimate in luxury resorts and hideaways. She’s the first name I think of when looking for high-end getaways - so much so that we made her our luxe expert on our monthly Ask the Expert pages - and I regularly use her recommended venues in travel features for Kanoo World Traveller and AIR. I look forward to hearing of any new clients!”
“We have worked with Hudsons Travel on a number of stories. The team are professional, reliable and extremely knowledgeable and I can’t recommend them highly enough.”
“These GCC based travel agents can get you anywhere you want in the world, but if you have somewhere specific in mind, here are our picks for who does what best… Hudsons Travel has over 10 years experience in luxury travel and has strong relationships with some of the top destinations in the Indian Ocean.”
“Thank you for organising such an interesting itinerary to Royal Mansour Marrakech. It was beyond our expectations.”
