Holidays should be stress free - from choosing your accommodation to flying home. So we take the hassle out of the planning and help you to arrange all the extras you need for your holiday. From flights and transfers to travel insurance and airport hotels - let us take care of it. We can even organise your Florida attraction tickets at great prices.
Holiday the way you like it with the ability to pick and choose your holiday extras.
At James not only do we handpick fabulous villas across beautiful destinations, but we also work with some of the most well-known and respected airlines, car hire companies and more to offer you the very best holiday experience.
Aside from being the UK's leading villa holiday specialists, there are lots of other great reasons why you should book with James. We specialise in the little things that make a big holiday! So find out just what they are.
Once you've chosen your villa, we can take care of your flights as well. Fly from your most convenient airport - we offer a fantastic range of flights including regional departures, at the times to suit you.
What's more, we can arrange your airport parking, airport hotels before you travel, your car hire or transfers, travel insurance and much more. It doesn’t have to be complicated.
Add all of your holiday extras as part of the easy booking process, or speak to our Travel Advisers.
Not ready to look at the finer details when booking? You can add extras onto your holiday at any time.
'Car Optional' shows that the villa in question is more central, with all amenities within easy reach. However, if you want to explore further afield, it’s still worth getting a car.
‘Car Advised’ covers those villas within walking distance of a few amenities, although a car will add to your enjoyment, making it easier to get around.
‘Car Essential’ villas are usually more rural and secluded, so you’ll need a car to reach restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities. They’re not always serviced by taxis.
BubbleBum is a cost-effective, portable and lightweight, inflatable car booster seat for children aged between 4-11 years. With quick and easy inflation and deflation plus the ability to be folded flat for storage, BubbleBum is a great alternative to taking your own children's car seats on holiday or hiring one for use in your car rental.
Freedom - that’s what makes a villa holiday special. To come and go as you please, each and every day.
A hire car adds to that freedom and puts you in the driving seat.
Want to drive and explore? From reaching that dream villa with a spectacular view, to cruising along the sun-drenched seascape - car hire opens up unique opportunities.
In some cases, a hire car is a must, given the location of the villa.
Each of our villas fall into one of three categories - car essential, car advised and car optional. This helps when choosing the perfect villa for you, depending on whether you want to escape it with a rural villa, or close to the action within walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
To help you decide, look out for the icons next to the villa descriptions.
Our wide range of car options have something for everyone, from budget to prestige.
**The Caribbean is the exception to this. For full details, please see the car hire terms and conditions when you continue to book and choose your car.

We make sure that our pre-arranged transfers are on time, every time. The transfer to your villa will match up with flight times so you won’t be waiting around for hours in arrivals.
Our transfers are by private car or mini bus, or by boat or ferry if you happen to be staying in Gozo, on certain Greek and Croatian Islands. In some areas you can also pre-book child seats, and every driver and vehicle that we use is thoroughly checked to ensure your safety.
The airport - the official start to your holiday! Forget rushing around, organising lifts from friends and family, or finding a seat in departures. We can organise all of your airport holiday extras so moving through the airport is as relaxing as your holiday itself. From airport parking and lounge to a hotel the night before your flight - we've got it all covered.
No need to rely on family or friends to drive you to the airport. Add airport parking to your holiday and leave your car in a convenient, safe spot. With great value and affordable airport parking rates, getting to the airport is easy!

Start your holiday right. No matter what airline you are flying with, you can relax in an airport lounge before your flight. Enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks, plenty of comfortable seating, reading material away from the crowds in departures. You'll be relaxed and ready to travel.
