About Us

We are a New Zealand based niche travel operator specialising in self-catering accommodation in the UK and Europe. Self-Catering is a term used for any type of accommodation with a kitchen or kitchenette. Motels, as we know them in New Zealand and Australia do not exist in the U.K. and Europe. Instead you can rent a villa, cottage or city apartment.

We are the largest specialist self-catering operator in New Zealand. We represent many large UK and European based agencies who each list hundreds of properties. UK-Europe Self-Catering also has many one-off properties where we liaise direct with the owners. By having such an extensive range we are able to do the shopping around for you. The properties featured on our website are some of our favourites – properties we are using all the time that our clients repeatedly enjoy. Many we have inspected ourselves and can recommend from personal experience. However, if you are looking for something a little different, or in an unusual location please let us know as quite likely we can source it and can email you more details.

We recommend you utilise the services of a travel agent and we will work with you and your agent to finalize your plans.
