Crusader Travel is an independent travel agency in Church Street, Twickenham established by Bruce and Hedda (his late wife) in 1995.

They had both worked in travel since the 1960`s. Hedda chose to specialise and guide small wildlife to often remote parts of the world, off the beaten track.

Bruce, on the other hand, always wanted to run a “Community” travel Agency, as he called “All things to all men”. As time passed not only did, he do just that (and that is much of what we do today) However he also pioneered Red Sea Travel first running Charter package holidays to Eilat and then branching out to Sharm Edward Sheik, Hurghada, Luxor, Cairo and Nile Cruises, he remains a specialist in this area for over 30 years.

Today, Bruce joined by Shona – his daughter, draw on their extensive experience to provide an unrivalled service catering for an eclectic clientele. 

They get immense pleasure in working on their client’s travel requests, working to provide as seamless a travel experience as possible, and at commercial prices.
