About

“For almost a decade Marmalade Toast bespoke travel & destination management has quietly created exceptional, tailored and bespoke, luxury travel experiences for our clients. During this time, we have been fortunate enough to have spent three years living in Thailand, as well as the opportunity to develop and work with an incredible network of global suppliers. Together with our intrinsic understanding of the Southeast Asian and Indochinese region we felt that it was time to develop a product that encompassed the Marmalade Toast service ethos and offered holiday packages of exceptional value that would be accessible to a broader market. In short, we wanted to make it possible for more people to experience more of this incredible world we lived in.

After months of development we are proud to finally introduce you to TWB Holidays, the newest addition to the Marmalade Toast family. With a core focus on Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, TWB Holidays allows us to tap into our extensive knowledge and network in these destinations and finally create holiday packages that are driven by value rather than price; but still sensitive to your needs, wants and budgets. We truly believe that destinations such as Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar are able to offer South African travellers unique, authentic and exceptional experiences that wont break the budget (even with our beleaguered Rand). But then, don’t listen to what we say. Go. See”

With a colourful and illustrious career in luxury hospitality and international event management as well as a stint as a publicist to the South African entertainment industry, Lance has a unique understanding of the needs of both the corporate and leisure traveller as well as an intrinsic understanding of what exceptional service entails. It is attention to detail that sets him apart from everyone else. Lance believes that his ethos, values and focus on being exceptional are what has enabled him to successfully carve a niche in the luxury experiential travel market. Together with his husband, partner and best friend David, he has recently returned to South Africa after spending three years living in and exploring Southeast Asia and Indochina, enabling them to better understand these destinations, the products available and how best to tailor these to create exceptional experiences for the South African and global travel markets.

A stickler for detail and a believer in going above and beyond, David’s years of experience in the fast paced and demanding world of corporate travel have encouraged him to look beyond the traditional travel service model and to believe that by providing exceptional service and focusing on the smaller details you ensure that the guests travel experience is seamless and exceptional. Working with companies like Deutsche Bank, Netcare and Investec has given David unique insight into the needs of corporate travellers and the ability to translate these needs into outstanding service levels across the board with all his clients. Having recently returned to South Africa with his husband and partner, Lance, after three years of living in and exploring Southeast Asia and Indochina, David believes that the key to success is giving and then giving some more.
