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
