Founder of Janet Love, Darren Burn, has launched his new gay-friendly travel company – OutOfOffice.com.
The company, which features over 100 suggested itineraries to over 30 countries, will create tailor-made experiences and holidays, all of which are gay friendly, allowing customers to design their perfect holiday (vacation) safe in the knowledge that the trip is suitable for them.
OutOfOffice.com is the world’s first mainstream travel company to cater to the LGBT market and use photos of gay and lesbian couples alongside their straight counterparts has launched today.
Darren said: “For years I’ve seen travel websites and companies neglect the LGBT market, especially in the marketing and photos they use. I never felt that anything catered for the kind of holiday I wanted to go on – one where I can immerse myself in a destination, experience it in full but also safe in the knowledge that all the people I’m handing my cash to are welcoming to gay travellers.”
He continues: “I want OutOfOffice.com to be the first port of call for gay travellers looking to experience something a little different to what’s been on offer previously. We’ve built some really innovative itineraries and can customise almost everything about a trip. Most of the destinations we cover are suitable for everyone, regardless of who you love, and in many instances we’re using trendier boutique hotels rather than large chains which adds a personal touch.”
The site has launched to a fanfare and a flurry of bookings. Customers from across the world are welcome to request a tailor-made proposal from Out Of Office.
It also provides up-to-date information on the LGBT laws in each country it covers to enable customers to make informed decisions on their travel choices.
