Brighton-based travel agent launches travel website – Out and Be Free!

Gary Hart August 2, 2019

This weekend, local independent travel agent, Marc Silver ​and his team, ​will be out in force promoting his new travel business aimed at the LGBT+ communities.

MARC’S business – ​beOUTbeFREE​.com​ – offers LGBT+ holidaymakers and travellers the opportunity to travel the world in comfort while feeling safe in their own sexuality.

Marc believes there is a huge gap in the market for ​gay ​LGBT+​ friendly holidays and is already helping customers travel the world in a safe and welcoming environment where everyone is equal.

He offers LGBT+ luxury bespoke and tailor-made travel options from short-haul holidays to popular European resorts, to long-haul holidays of a lifetime to exotic destinations.

Marc said: “We scan the world looking for hotels that welcome the LGBT+ community with equality ​open arms​, where our community is treated equal and safe” 

“Over the last 20 years I have travelled the world and experienced first-hand the issues of staying in hotels with my partner​ and​ have felt the pain we have when travelling. and was frustrated by the lack of real choice for LGBTQ+ travellers, when visiting overseas destinations outside of Europe, ​ I believe that there is a huge demand for this type of service within the LGBTQ+ arena​, as we, the LGBTQ+ community wants to see the world too, but we want to feel safe and we want to feel welcome​.” 

Mr Silver found in particular a lack of choice of LGBT+ friendly hotels in Brazil, Japan, China and Hong Kong. He has now secured accommodation in all these destinations​ and many others around the world, ​who openly welcome gay travellers​​. The choice is getting bigger and the destinations are increasing.
