our heritage

We have been creating luxury family holidays since 1985, with a focus on the highest quality, flexibility and service. If you are yet to join us and are looking for a specialist that understands that the success of your family holiday lies in the little details, we’d love to hear from you.

The Powder Byrne Story

Started by young entrepreneur Rory Byrne in 1985, Powder Byrne has remained true to its roots. We were the first UK tour operator to marry bespoke skiing experiences with quality service, sharing our passion for powder skiing, our intimate knowledge of the Alps, and our "nothing is too much trouble" approach with our early clients, and that philosophy is still the ethos of the company today. Known as the luxury holiday company for parents and kids, we've made it our mission to deliver the very best service and provide seamless support to every member of your family so that you can all get down to the serious business of enjoying yourselves.

To complement the success of our skiing business, we introduced our Summer Resorts Programme in 1995. Thanks to the popularity of our hand-picked properties, unique children's programmes and dedicated resort services, this has grown from strength to strength with a portfolio of properties spanning the Mediterranean, Indian Ocean and Caribbean. We are proud to have built up a strong following of regular clients thanks to our unique approach, our dedicated staff, and our focus on delivering the best experience for each and every client.

Our Approach to Luxury Family Holidays

No two Powder Byrne holidays are the same as we tailor individual experiences with the flexibility to fit your requirements. Our secret lies in striking the right balance between family time and time to yourselves to enjoy the things you each want to do on holiday. We will take time to talk through the benefits of each property and advise on the most appropriate options for you. You can expect honest and knowledgeable advice as we assist with your decisions.

Why Choose Powder Byrne for Your Holiday?

The greatest compliment we can receive is the reward of repeat business and the recommendations and referrals our clients bring. These are just some of the reasons why our clients travel with us again and again.

Our Knowledge and Experience

Our team has an intimate knowledge of all of our resorts built up over 30 years and we can pinpoint exactly where we think your family will feel most at home. Experience has taught us exactly what our clients want when they go on holiday and we have developed our services and programmes to continually meet and exceed those expectations.

Our People

Our people are our greatest asset and when you travel with us you will always be looked after by one of our team. From the moment you call, through to the service you enjoy whilst on holiday, we're with you throughout, looking after your interests and giving you total peace of mind.

Earning Trust and Providing Security

We are an established brand that you can trust. We are a hands-on, privately owned business in which every member of our team is closely involved with the delivery of our holidays. We provide 100% financial security thanks to our ATOL and ABTA bonding: the only surprises you can look forward to are good ones.

Offering Total Flexibility

We offer complete flexibility so you can travel on any day of the week and from any airport that suits you.  From restaurant reservations to babysitting, local shuttles to ski guiding, nothing is too much trouble for us to arrange.

We're Always Improving

Whilst we have many years experience, we never rest on our laurels. We know we are only as good as our last holiday and it is this mantra that drives us to seek out feedback so we can evaluate, improve and keep striving to be better.
