Welcome to Crusader Travel

We’re an independent agency based in the heart of Twickenham. We love making our customers’ holiday dreams come true.

Crusader Travel was founded in 1995 by husband and wife team Bruce and Hedda Lyons, who’ve both worked in the travel industry since the 1960s. Our knowledgeable and attentive team, which also includes Shona and Billur, can help you find your ideal holiday or enhance holiday plans you already have. Pop in for a chat and a coffee (or give us a call) and let us create your dream holiday for you – it’s what we do best.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our client testimonials below and on our blog and read why we have a strong and loyal customer base that have used us for many years.

We’re open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5.30pm but we’re happy to stay open into the evening, and on Sundays, to suit you

The Chia Laguna in Sardinia is offering an Early Booking offer of 25% discount and up to two children (under 13 years old) stay free for bookings made by 31st of January. In the heart of the Mediterranean, the island of Sardinia is a world of its own. An extraordinary region, which offers to all its visitors a true journey in time.  A micro-continent made of surprising and always different  landscapes, cradle of the mysterious Nuraghic population, strategic colony for the Phoenicians, Punic and  Romans, a land of genuine tastes and flavours, and ancient traditions. Golden sand dunes, coloured by the green of the typical Mediterranean shrub, stretch as far as the eye can see into the crystal-clear waters of the sea, and behind, the lagoon inhabited by the pink flamingos.

All the hotel facilities are within easy reach and the Bouganville is the designated restaurant for breakfast and buffet-style dinner.

Guests are greeted in the new reception area that leads to new pathways through the greenery, passing by a herb garden and the new half-Olympic infinity pool. 80 splendid brand new, spacious and bright rooms are embedded in the promontory with clean lines that draw the eye towards the spectacular view over the sea and surrounding nature.
