It’s perfect if you’re feeling the cold and need a couple of moments to feel like you’re far, far away – give it a try yourself on 0800 133 7652, and as we say, it’s free even from your mobile (so perfect if you need to daydream on the bus – and a great way to imagine yourself chilling out on one of our luxury villa holidays!)And as you’d imagine, we’ve had a bit of interest from the press in this unique new service, so we’ve collated all our clippings and mentions here in one easy place.

- Fife Today published a small piece on the helpline, saying:
A new helpline for Holiday Withdrawal Symptoms has been launched by Oliver’s Travels to provide comfort to people who are yearning to escape the dark mornings and the cold weather.
The helpline features a number of audio recordings of classic holiday sounds. Listeners need only dial, pick a sound and close their eyes to feel like they’ve been transported on holiday.
- Just About Travel mentioned the service in their Saturday travel round up too, mentioning how it’s a great tonic even for the weariest of travellers!
If, by the end of next week, I have had enough about holidays and destinations then here could be a remedy for me. Oliver’s Travels has launched a new helpline for holidaymakers suffering post-holiday blues. The company says that the free helpline is available to anyone suffering withdrawal symptoms and features audio recordings of ‘classic holiday sounds’ from a vibrant Moroccan market to the sound of crickets in the Tuscan hills.
- The Milngavie & Bearsden Herald also took a look, describing what you can expect if you choose to give the helpline a call:
Dial one to relax to the sound of tropical birds calling through a Caribbean rainforest; dial two to hear the relaxing chirp of crickets as night falls in the Tuscan hills; dial three to dive into the bustle and life of a vibrant Moroccan market and dial four for the gentle sound of Mediterranean waves kissing the shore.
- Escapism Magazine, which specialises in independent travel, picked up on our fantastic helpline in their January 2016 issue, noting:
“Dealing with the holiday blues is a flipping nightmare – trust us, we know. It comes to some relief, then, that villa holiday specialist Oliver’s Travels has launched an emergency Holiday Withdrawal Helpline to help those feeling particularly blue.”
