Creating Lifelong Memories

Using the best range of holidays and personal, expert advice.


We are Dartford’s Travel Agent and we are local, independent and award-winning.

Established in 2015, our business has grown from being a home-based tour operator to be a high-street travel agency. With over 20 years of experience in the travel industry, we can help you find the perfect holiday. Our prices are no more than if you went direct to the holiday suppliers we work with, but crucially we are independent, this means our advice is impartial. We are also a local business, we live in the town and aim to be a part of the community, sponsoring the Dartford Festival for the second time in 2018, and supporting the local charity – Ellenor.

All of our holidays are 100% financially protected

The travel industry is notoriously volatile, with Monarch being the most recent failure. So we want you to be able to relax and know your money is safe. Every flight inclusive package is ATOL protected, and every holiday, no matter how small, is protected by the Travel Trust Association.


We are proud to be independent

We are proud because we understand the holiday market and know that this gives you a lot more choice. It not only means we provide you with impartial advice, but also we work with a remarkable range of superb holiday suppliers. When you enter a branded store,you can only leave with one of their holidays, we however, work across a wide range of the best holiday providers.

What Our Clients Say

To summarise: brilliant service. Tim went out of his way to secure us a great holiday within the requested parameters (cost, dates, location). I was bit sceptical about using them as the stigma around the old fashioned travel agents, but I was proven wrong. Harden Holidays is not a traditional travel agent. We received very personalised service and communication, even outside of the shop opening hours. Even if you’re 100% sure about your holiday, Harden Holidays is the way to go as Tim can really make your holiday that little bit better with his expertise and recommendations. Same price as on the holiday company website (we went with Jet2Holidays package), but the service really puts these guys above everything. Will be using them again.”

“Booked with Tim today. He had already done his homework, based on the info I had told him via e mail, so he already had a good selection of holidays within our budget, preferred location and date ready when we arrived . All booked and sorted on the same day. Plus toys for the kids to play with and a cuppa whilst we booked. Will definitely be booking with Tim again!!”
