The Start of Your Incredible Journey
It might seem unusual to name a British travel company after a little known French word, but we think once you know the meaning, you will see why we could be called nothing else!
Most simply, dépaysement translates to “change of scene”, however it actually refers to much more than that. Dépaysement is when you find your thoughts drifting to past and future travels; remembering the feelings you get when you’re sipping a cool drink on a terrace overlooking a beautiful view, or from the sound of cicadas in the trees and waves breaking on the shore, or the smell of a warm breeze blowing your hair. Anyone who really misses that feeling of having a change to all their senses is aching for dépaysement.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we know that many of you, like us, will have experienced that feeling of yearning to be somewhere else, experiencing different lands, climates, and cultures.
Let dépaysement answer that yearning!
Meet Our Founder
The travel bug bit me when I was young; because of my parent’s jobs I was fortunate enough to have family holidays in Europe, Asia, and North America, which meant that at an early age airports became my favourite place to go to – a joy which never really left.
So, upon encouragement from friends and family I decided to establish dépaysement; a travel agency which really listens to what you’re looking for and goes above and beyond to ensure all the trips we organise are so good we just might turn up ourselves!
