Trailfinders Bristol

48 Corn St, Bristol BS1 1HQ, UK – 0117 929 9000

We booked our first ever "big holiday" through this branch, initially dealing with Simon to get an idea of cost, and then with Steph Salter once we decided to book it. She took time to understand what we wanted, and took time to explain everything to us. Unfortunately during the time from booking to leaving, both our hotels pulled out and our initial flight was cancelled. Steph helped us pick different hotels, and even saved us £200 the second time round, using a new offer to get us a hotel in a better location than before. When we found out about the flights, we were rung and informed, but were also given two options straight away, both of which were an "upgrade" from our original flight for no extra cost. At no time did we feel any kind of worry, and everyone we dealt with was helpful, understanding, and patient with us. After our experience, my parents are using this Trailfinders branch to book a big trip for their 25th wedding anniversary.

Brilliant. Very friendly, professional and did an amazing job of helping us plan our trip. Was kept updated at all times and provided fantastic service. Booking another trip with them again soon and have also recommend them to other friends and family.

Bupa are used for my company’s occupational health services. I had a assessment with Dr Stephen Szweda and all I can say it that the entire session exceeded my expectations. Dr Szweda is clearly a very experienced doctor, who was very professional, empathetic and truly demonstrated a care for my needs and that of the organisation. I can wholeheartedly recommend Bupa Occupational Health services on the back of this session with Dr Szweda. Thank you for a pleasent experience Dr Szweda.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!
