About Us

For over 50 years Ian Dickson Travel has been offering a worldwide travel service to corporate and independent travellers. We are conveniently located in Edinburgh’s New Town – only 10 minutes walk from Princes Street. We use the most advanced travel technology to book all travel services, including airline tickets, accommodation, rail journeys, cruises, car rental and transfers. This leaves you to get on with the other things that make life so busy, safe in the knowledge that experienced travel professionals are looking after you!

If you are planning to visit China for business or leisure we are a true one-stop shop! We are specialists in travel to China with over 33 years experience on the ground. Whether you are joining a  trade mission, arranging a special interest tour or school trip or would like an individual tailor-made programme, we can organise your International travel. In addition we have access to cheap domestic airfares and hotel rates through our network of local Chinese agents. We can also arrange your transfers and book the new high-speed trains.

If your destination requires a visa, we offer a comprehensive service. We personally handle applications for China, India, and Russia, here in Edinburgh, and for other countries through our trade partners.

We hold ABTA, ATOL and IATA licences for your financial protection, giving you that extra peace of mind.

Our clients value the personal service we offer and this website is designed to give you more information on our range of services.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
