Meet the Team


Mike Carter – Managing Director

Mike's family have been in the travel business for four generations. Having grown up working in the family’s chain of high street travel agencies, it was a natural progression for Mike to found Holidays2, a web-based tour operator, in 2004.

Following a successful travel career, culminating as MD of a major international tour operator, Mike was determined to offer bespoke and tailor made holidays to far flung destinations but without the high street price tag. Mike has travelled extensively, for over forty years, and has been arranging quality holidays that can be individually tailored to the client's exact requirements for almost as long.

Over the years, Mike has visited the world but his favourite locations are Doubtful Sound and Kaikoura in New Zealand, Lake Louise & the Gaspe in Canada, Perth & Tasmania in Australia. Being a train buff, Mike’s most cherished holiday experiences include the VIA Rail's Canadian train from coast to coast, the Rocky Mountaineer and TranzAlpine train across the Southern Alps.
