Our Story...
plumaccommodation was started in 2005 as a trade show only accommodation supplier. The business had some success, and in 2011 to our CEO Brian acquired the business. It was soon very clear that service levels was the one thing that would set plum apart at the time. With no website, we started inviting travel agents to send us their hotel requests on email. We delivered on our service promises and our sales quickly grew as more and more agencies started enjoying dealing with people who really CARE. We soon saw the need to develop our own online booking engine and invested heavily in some high IQ individuals who could talk computer and since then our web development team has been working tirelessly in developing a system that is based solely on the needs of travel agents. Ours is a system for travel people, by travel people.

Since 2011 our team has grown from small home based business to an entire team of professionals providing jaw-dropping service in two continents, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We believe in service and we really do CARE!

I have always been a proud supporter of Plum Accommodation. But the new website with its friendly feel, extended product range, and credit card payment option, take Plum well ahead of its competitors. Service is excellent, and a special convenience is the very fast after hours response to ANY queries.

Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.
