Steve Murray, MD

Active Travel Boutique has been established by Steve Murray in Hoole, Chester.
Before establishing ATB Steve spent 11 years researching and developing scores of walking, cycling and snow activity holidays for one of the UK’s most popular active holiday companies. Before that he spent 5 years on research trips all over the world for Holiday Which? Magazine, (now Which? Travel), and also around the UK as a Which? Hotel Inspector. The 5 years before that were spent both travelling on and selling round the world trips via the Far East, Australia and New Zealand for Travelbag, a long haul specialist.

52 countries later and with personal experience of many of the world’s most popular destinations, cities and sights, Steve offers free advice on what is possible, where and with whom.

What Makes Us Different

Holiday inspiration and guidance....

The entire purpose behind setting up Active Travel Boutique is to offer travel inspiration and guidance to anyone who asks me for it, for free. With first hand knowledge of over 50 countries, many of them popular holiday choices, and with over 20 years in the travel business, you can receive free and 100% independent guidance on what trip and which supplier would suit you best.

Narrow down the options.....

The kaleidoscope of holiday options can be bewildering, and it is much easier to pick from a couple of amazing options proposed to you, rather than try and hunt down a trip for yourself. When you decide on your destination or type of holiday, either we can provide you with an itinerary we think will be ideal for you, or if you are the sort of person who loves researching holidays as much as we do, we can even work on it together to create your perfect trip.

Travel concierge and booking service.....

When a tailor made trip arrives in your inbox and you decide you love it enough to book it, then the trip is booked for you from start to finish. All you have to do then is call the person whose number we send to you, and they will take payment for the trip. You only pay exactly what you would have paid if you had found the trip yourself - there is no charge for ATB's services.

The range of destinations and types of holiday can be confusing. That’s where expert guidance can save you a great deal of time and effort.
With extensive personal experience of some of the world’s most popular destinations and a broad knowledge of current holiday providers and special offers, Active Travel Boutique is uniquely placed to offer free, independent advice on which holiday from which provider will suit you best, so that you purchase exactly the trip that is right for you.
You can discuss the holiday you would like to book, or just ask for ideas and inspiration. We then research and book your trip for you.

We Work With You Directly

Our Valued Customer

Every service we offer is tailor made to your personal requirements. Whether it is a weekend away in the UK, a city break or the big trip you always wanted, we can make it happen – hassle free.

This independent guidance is for your consideration – you do not have to book anything suggested by Active Travel Boutique.
When you pay the deposit (and balance) to the supplier, you accept ownership and responsibility for the selection and purchase decision, just as you would had you found the holiday independently.
Any future travel or quality issues or incidents with your holiday are between you (the purchaser), and the holiday company (the supplier), and are not the responsibility of Active Travel Boutique.
