What We Do

We organise completely tailor-made, private and individual holidays. We have travelled to each and every one of the destinations we cover; we spend time exploring the back streets, investigating the best guides, finding that fantastic local restaurant and getting the insider’s view. All so that you can make the very most of your time from the moment you get off the plane.

Based on an initial chat, preferably face-to-face at your convenience, we will put together suggestions combining your vision and our expertise. It is our belief that holidays are about more than just two weeks away. Every holiday is different. With so much ‘information’ available to the casual browser it can become overwhelming and hard to distinguish between the acceptable and the exceptional.

You need an expert eye and an opinion you can trust – and that’s where we come in.

The Team

  • Laura Jeffrey

    Owner and Director of Passepartout

    Laura travelled independently for the first time when she was only 10 years old when she well and truly caught the bug. Originally working for Cazenove+Loyd and managing their Asia department, she left to found Passepartout in 2010 and has been curating extraordinary adventures for her own clients ever since. Each year Laura normally spends 3-4 months on the road ensuring her product knowledge is both comprehensive and bang up to date.

    Travel to Asia can be daunting but with the right team behind every trip, the black book of contacts Laura has developed and with first hand expertise from years of travel to the region, she can ensure you get to the heart of this complex and fascinating continent.

    When Laura isn’t travelling she scores for her beloved cricket team, the Authors XI, plays bridge, enjoys contemporary classical music and is happiest hosting marathon Sunday roasts. 

  • Sally Jeffrey

    Company Secretary

    With decades of intrepid and individual travel adventures, Sally joined Passepartout as Company Secretary. She manages payments to our suppliers, maintains our records and, from time to time, travels on our behalf vetting and exploring new locations and services.
    She adds to our team of travel experts a sideways view of the less well known, the quirky corners of local culture with her in depth knowledge of architecture, gardens, literature and textiles all the while soaking up regional food and music.

    In her spare time Sally enjoys creative writing, gardening and classical music while devoting as much time as possible to her grandchildren and undertaking mammoth needlepoint projects.

  • Gurpreet Sahota

    Executive Assistant

    Gurpreet is Laura’s right hand woman and has been an essential member of the team since 2013. Working closely with Sally, she is responsible for the slick administration at Passepartout and having previously worked with Oberoi Luxury Resorts as Guest Relations Manager, she has a passion for customer service and understands the importance of communicating the smallest of details to the hotels and ground handlers and ensuring that every little aspect is taken care of so that we are able to offer the most comfortable holiday possible.

    Gurpreet is based out of India which has proved to be an asset as we have one of our own frequently to review all that the Indian Subcontinent has to offer.

    Working from home, Gurpreet is also the primary carer for her little girl, apple of her eye.

Why Passepartout

The way we approach things is slightly different to other travel companies. We dig deep, finding out as much as possible about exactly what sort of picture you have in your head of the ideal trip. We take the time to get to know our clients putting us in the best possible position to be able to advise what will really work for you.

We know our destinations back to front. Each of our experts has repeatedly visited the countries they know and love. We dare to be highly opinionated about every place we visit and we’ll give you an honest review: we are completely independent and will only ever recommend somewhere because we think it is right for you, not because we are contractually or financially obliged to do so.

While you are away we keep an eye on all the arrangements behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly, from checking you in online for your flight to arranging little extras which pepper the trip as you travel.
