The Smith Family About Us

The Holiday Planning Guide by the Smith Family helps people find the holidays they want at a price they are happy with, equipped with everything they need.

The Holiday Planning Guide is a joint effort by the Smith Family.

We live in the coastal village of Snettisham in Norfolk England and as a family we love to travel.

Ian Smith is a practising dentist who has spent the last thirty five years trying to find the best holiday deals, and enjoying independent travel. He finally realised that it took serious  planning to get the full enjoyment out of his holidays which is where the  idea came from.
Ian  has had an internet presence since the mid 90’s and owned a series of travel websites, but this is his first joint venture involving all his family



Julie Smith is a dental nurse manager, married to Ian. She brings the female point of view to The Holiday Planning Guide and is the family’s expert on getting the best deals, an expertise she brings to the business. In the past few years on holidays to Penang, Phuket, and Mauritius Julie has been able to undercut the brochure prices of the family holiday by as much as £1500.



Lucy Smith at eighteen years of age  is about to go to University and she brings not only a knowledge of social media but also an understanding of the kind of places her generation is excited by. Her holiday experience  covers areas as far as the United States, Europe, Egypt, Dubai, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Kenya, South Africa, Zanzibar, Bali, Phuket. Her experiences include avoiding the smelliest places imaginable, how to avoid seeing chickens being dispatched, and where to see the first fish to develop lungs actually coming out of the water.



Alexander Smith is the youngest member of our family team. He is sports mad, and if we want to know whether or not our choice of facilities will include decent golf, tennis, squash, water skiing, then he is our man. Great showers in the bathroom is an area of expertise, plus the quality of breakfasts and lunches. Swimming pools need to be a decent size, and enough teenagers around to play ball games in the pool.




We strive to offer thorough reviews and information on The Holiday Planning Guide. This site was created by the Smith Family to help you quickly get information about The Holiday Planning Guide, read reviews and find the best merchants to do business with.
