Michael Carter Travel is a local family based company who have been trading for over 40 years. We specialize in long haul, tailor made holidays and have been at our present address on Lincoln’s High Street since 1974.

The company was founded by Michael Carter, who worked in the office until his retirement 20 years ago; although he is still very much involved with the company. Michael’s son Nick has worked for the company for 25 years and has taken the helm from Michael in the day-to-day running.

Michael, Nick and the remaining staff, Cheryl and Claire, have over 130 years travel experience collectively and have all travelled extensively during this time, so have a wide range of holiday experience that they can share with clients.
