What Customers Are Saying

Lee’s honeymoon to Greece

I'm never planning a trip on my own again

"A wonderful travel experience begins with thoughtful planning. From the very first step Bastiaan got to know us both - what we liked, what we didn't, and drew out of us angles of the experience ahead we hadn't even thought of. That turned into a trip plan like no other and something I could have never created on my own. The personal concierge service available while we were traveling was invaluable. There is no doubt we picked the absolutely best partner to work with. Don't make your trip a 'DIY trip'. Work with Mr Hudson and you will have the experience of a lifetime!"

Ben’s global adventures

Busy CEO loves Mr Hudson

"I’ve come to rely on Mr Hudson as a go-to resource for tasteful, thoughtful, and truthful travel advice and support. It’s difficult to cut through so much travel content and reviews online, so Mr Hudson’s curated city guides and custom booking services help to make travel planning far easier and more efficient. And I feel more confident knowing that what I’m booking will not only be aligned to my taste and expectations, but will also be LGBTQ friendly. I’ve used the service on many continents with success, including trips with my parents."

Jeff’s Argentina & Uruguay vacation

Walking tours and learning something new

"This is our first time using your service and we absolutely loved it! You knew exactly what we wanted, giving us the perfect itinerary to follow on our travels. Organized and flexible, giving options but not so many as to feel overwhelmed. We will definitely use you again for our next trip!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a travel agent or a travel advisor?

Many travel agents have rebranded as travel advisors to reflect the level of care and personalisation we put into planning every trip. But we essentially all do the same thing: plan and book your perfect vacation. We are real experts – like financial advisors or personal shoppers. We can design your trip from scratch or help book what you’ve already decided on and everything in between.

What exactly do you do?

We make exploring the world in style effortless and fabulous. We invest in understanding your expectations and whittle down destination and accommodation options to find the best fit for you. We curate our content and team for true expertise. Our job is to ensure your next trip is tailored to your taste, passions and travel style.

Why would I choose you over booking online?

When you book your vacation with Mr Hudson, you unlock a world of insider expertise, incredible travel perks, and access to a curated portfolio of the best travel brands in the business. Because of our affiliation with Departure Lounge and Virtuoso, we can offer you the best options for luxury lodging, experiences and transportation while often providing complimentary VIP perks and upgrades that cannot be secured when booking yourself. It also means we can access preferred agency programmes, such as Four Seasons Preferred, Ritz-Carlton & Marriott Luxury Stars, Belmond Bellini Club, Hyatt Privee, Hilton Impresario, Rosewood Elite, and more than a dozen others.

What do you charge?

Every vacation we plan is tailored to you. We request a design fee to cover our time researching and planning your trip. The upgrades and perks we deliver typically far outweigh the fee for a 5-star traveler. And for every trip we arrange, we share our insider tips on the best experiences, restaurants and nightlife options free of charge.

When will I be charged?

We ask that you pay our trip design fee before we work to deliver your custom itinerary proposal. When you are charged for trip components such as hotels depends on the provider. For example, most hotels require a credit to hold a room, but some charge a deposit upon making the reservation. Before we release your payment information, we’ll always let you know your chosen hotel’s deposit and cancellation policies, so there are no surprises.

I love planning trips myself. Why should I pay you to do it for me?

While most people enjoy the inspirational part of travel planning, doing destination research and strategizing trip logistics can be a real headache. Poor planning (or no planning) can also make the day-to-day on the ground feel more like work than vacation. By trusting our expert curators to design the perfect trip for you based on your personal preferences and using our extensive destination knowledge, you’ll be spared a ton of time and unnecessary stress. We incorporate all your ideas and dreams into a plan that optimizes your time and minimizes your hassle.

Will you create an itinerary for us if we make our own reservations?

To ensure you have the best possible vacation experience and be able to assist you should something go wrong, we only offer our trip design service as part of a tailor-made package that includes us making hotel reservations at a minimum. Booking flights, transfers and guided activities for you is also possible but optional.

Do you offer a best-price guarantee?

Hotels are required to offer price parity, but it is sometimes possible to find a better rate with an online travel agent than the one advertised on the hotel’s website. That doesn’t happen often, but we do our best to ensure the property honors the same price when it does. And here’s some insider knowledge about our industry: hotels pay a much smaller commission to human travel advisors than to online travel agents like Expedia or Booking.com. That’s why they’d rather pay us the commission and include perks for you, such as a free upgrade or resort credits, instead of having you book online. Everybody wins.

Do you book airfares?

Yes, and we recommend that you have us book your flights in premium cabins for two reasons. First, through our affiliation with Departure Lounge, we have access to special air contracts that often deliver considerable savings for first or business class tickets on international flights or private jets. Second, if we don’t reserve your air travel, we are legally not allowed to assist with any flight changes or interruptions that may occur during your trip.

Can I use miles or reward points when you book my flights or hotels?

Unfortunately, we cannot use coupons, vouchers, points, miles, avios or other loyalty programme rewards when you request us to book flights or hotels for you.

Do you only cater to gay men?

Not at all! Around a third of clients are female. We started Mr Hudson as a gay travel blog and continue to create content with gay men in mind because it’s a community we’re intimately familiar with. That said, many other people enjoy our content, and we’re proud to have built a diverse community. Our trip design team comprises women and men who are widely traveled, well-versed in trip curation, and deeply understand what makes people tick, ensuring that we offer the best possible advice to each of our clients. We serve anyone who travels in style and looks to relieve pre-trip anxiety and those tedious days of destination research and booking online.

What type of vacation should I book with you?

Any type you can think of. Resort vacations, wildlife safaris, city breaks, luxury cruises, wellness retreats, honeymoons, once-in-a-lifetime adventures, and weekend escapes, we cover it all. So send your wishes our way – if we can’t book it, we’ll tell you.

What destinations do you cover?

If you read through all the places Mr Hudson has written about, we’d like to think we cover the whole globe! We’re here to help build any trip you fancy, from city breaks to country itineraries and beach holidays. Our trip designers have a wide range of expertise. And if we don’t have the answer ourselves, we’re likely to know exactly who to call.
