Thanks for visiting the House of Travel Jenny Nilsson page!

At House of Travel Jenny Nilsson we believe that Travel enriches people’s lives – providing a unique opportunity to see, to experience and to learn. The success of our business in Hastings has been based on one simple premise - our ability to transform normal holiday ideas into something quite exceptional.

Our experience in the travel business over the past 18 years allows us to add those inspirational tips, ideas and ‘off the beaten track’ experiences that in less experienced hands would not produce such exciting results.

This ability to ‘make a difference’ for our customers is what drives us and overwhelmingly our feedback tells us we’ve got it right.

If you would like to work with us in making sure your holiday is as good as it can possibly be, please pop in and have a chat with one of us about your holiday plans.

HOT Jenny Nilsson's travel tips

"First time travellers to Disneyland on arrival go to the Town Hall (on your left at the Main gate) and get your 1st Visit Badge Free" ~ Debbie

"When travelling in taxis, also get the name of the driver and their cab number"
"Wear and carry washable silk clothing whenever possible. It is as warm as and as cool as cotton. It dries overnight and 10-15 pieces 4. Plastic rain coat can double as a bathrobe or windbreaker" ~ Debby

"For security use ATMs rather than travellers checks. You'll get your cash cheaper and faster. Note that they come with transaction fees, but you can minimize them by making fewer and larger withdrawals."
~ Donna

"Coordinate your clothes around one or two basic colours. This cuts down on the number of shoes and accessories you have to bring." ~ Jenny

"Take older clothes that can be discarded along the way. Great for growing children. Many places, the local people are pleased to get these castoffs. There are travellers who take nothing but old clothes so they have that much more room for bringing souvenirs home"
~ Jenny

"Make sure you have a copy of your passport and itinerary with a family member or friend."
~ Steve

Sphinx in Cairo

Colossi of Ramses in Abu Simbel


"The accommodation in Egypt was always well situated (in Cairo close to the Pyramids, in Aswan we had an excellent view of the Nile and in Alexandria on the waterfront. Our local reps and guides in Egypt were all excellent - we felt very safe at all times, and all our guides were very knowledgeable and explained things clearly.

In Israel we experienced the "Classical Israel Tour" – our driver Uri was excellent with great knowledge, and explained everything well with a great sense of humour. The local agents were brilliant, and we loved that the Gilgal Hotel in Tel Aviv was so handy to the beach.

The "Jordan Discovery" tour was another excellent tour with plenty of time at the sites.  The whole day at Petra was great.

A big 'thank you' to the Innovative Travel Company for a very well organised tour. This was our second holiday with your company. Thank you so much."
