The welcoming office, opened in March 2004, is run by Alison Ribeiro and her friendly staff, Paula Moreira and Telma Candeias, and is well situated among the many cafés, shops and businesses that are developing in the vibrant area of Rua Vitor Costa e Silva. Since moving to this new location, PDM Travel has attracted many new customers from the UK, Germany, Netherlands and especially the local Portuguese.

As a service provider, PDM Travel always aim to make various options available for their customers so that they can be sure that the consumers are making the right choice for their individual situation. “People often call us with no idea of what they want but, after talking with us, we use our extensive resources to tailor-make an itinerary to suit their needs,” Alison said.
