About Lloyds

Family owned and operated since 1969.

We are a boutique full service travel agency.  What that means is this:  we search high and low to get you to your best vacation yet.  And how long have we been operating?  Since 1952.  That’s 70 years of knowledge – so we’re pretty confident we can find exactly what you’re looking for.

Our success is down to one thing: we are travellers.  Each member of our team loves what they do, has firsthand experience across all continents, and seeks out the latest training. We don’t just sit in the office, staring out windows, watching cars drive by.  Instead, we go out to all 4 corners of the world. 

You can find us on a luxury river cruise in Europe or on an expedition to the Antarctic.  Perhaps we are taking photos of the Big 5 in Africa or tasting the local flavors of India.  So, when we tell you which hotel to stay in or which cruise company to go with, it’s coming from a desire to let you experience what we have.

Our Story

A Little About Us

As the oldest travel agency in Vancouver, we have seventy years of experience in customized itineraries, cruising & river cruising, adventure tourism, corporate travel, tour packages, travel insurance and more. Our success over all these years can be attributed to the client trust that we have earned.

We believe in surrounding ourselves with good people, all of our full-time consultants have travelled the world and have a minimum of 20 years consulting experience.  They love what they do and it shows, they can give you sound advice or assurance on what you have chosen and ultimately assist you in making things happen.

We believe that the best utilization of our people assets is to have them deal with people that appreciate and value their advice, as such over 70% of our new clients are introduced by our current clients, and we have a very happy team.  Our clients look forward to our advice and recommendations, but above all their love of adventure and travel inspire our people. Other than our significant events experiences (mainly family groups and/or milestone birthday celebrations) we tend to focus on small ships and private tours. We believe travel experience is enhanced when you are doing what you want to do and not what others think you should be doing. 

Other than over 70 years of business relationships we enjoy charter membership with the world’s largest Travel Consortium, Ensemble Travel. Through Ensemble we leverage a multi-billion dollar buying power and have access to over 120 local guides in countries worldwide. This enables us to arrange private tours of sites not open to the public or get you in through the back door or to the front of the line of popular tourist sites. If something needs doing, we know who to contact, and more importantly those contacts know us. We are also licensed by the Government of British Columbia, one of only three provinces that regulate Travel Agencies. By law our people must have their insurance license and due to our Travel Assurance fund your investment in travel is protected against default, fraud, or any other reason that your paid for trip is not delivered.
