What the Editors Say:

Maria Shollenbarger, Travel Editor
The FT: How To Spend It

“I’ve worked with Isobel and Olivia for many years and have found them to be consistently among the most competent and informed of their peers – they are not only faultlessly informed on their clients, but have a true expert’s sense of exactly what the right context or placement is for each one. They’re also prompt, articulate, sensitive to the particular diplomatics that define our industry, and simply lovely to work with”. 

Francisca Kellett, Travel Editor

Abel & Graham have many excellent qualities, but the one that really stands out for me is that they totally get who my readers are. A&G understands the sort of stories and properties that work for my publication, a rare quality in the world of PR. They are clever and fast and knows how editors like to work – picking up the phone to chat over an idea, for example, rather than sending me a run-of-the-mill press release which I know has gone out to countless others. They are on-the-ball, have a good nose for a story and, perhaps most importantly are hugely fun and enjoyable to work with.”

Mark Hedges, Editor
Country Life

“Issy & Olivia are a delight to work with. Not only do they fully understand both the needs of their clients,
but Issy & Olivia ensure that they match the demands of Country Life. I have been delighted with the articles
that Abel & Graham have helped me with, but more importantly, they have resonated with Country Life’s
affluent and demanding readership. Abel & Graham has my complete trust and for a busy editor that is vital”

Kerry Smith, Editor
British Airways’, High Life

I’ve known and worked with Isobel and Olivia since starting as editor-in-chief of High Life.
They are knowledgeable, have excellent contacts across the press and the travel industry, are polished,
professional, full of ideas and creativity – and (perhaps most importantly) just a complete joy to work with…”

Mark Palmer, Travel Editor
Daily Mail

It makes a huge difference when one can deal with a travel PR company that is pro-active, reliable and efficient. Abel & Graham are all of these things. And, perhaps just as important, they do not promise more than they can deliver. In the last 12 months or so I have had a chance to work closely with Abel & Graham on a number of stories and on each occasion it has worked out tremendously well. An added bonus is that a meeting with them is always a pleasant rather than laboured experience. I can recommend them most highly.”

Lisa Grainger, Deputy Editor
The Times: LUXX

I have worked with both Isobel and Olivia over the years on all sorts of projects – and always found them to be not only efficient,
but really helpful in coming up with ideas that might make good features, introducing me to clients whose properties or destinations
are a good fit with the publications on which I work, and supplying helpful news at the last minute when required. They’re a great team,
whom I would be happy to recommend.”

Mary Lussiana, Freelance Journalist
Conde Nast Traveller, The Daily Telegraph, The FT: How to Spent It, House & Garden, Tatler

Abel & Graham is a shining light in the world of PR.  Efficient and pro-active on behalf of their clients and an absolute joy to travel with for us journalists. Always going that extra mile, Olivia & Isobel combine a keen understanding of what luxury travel is about with seizing opportunities to put their clients together with the right media, rather than the more common scatter gun approach.  Never failing to keep in touch with
journalists on what’s new, I couldn’t recommend Abel & Graham more, knowing that they will give 100% on behalf of those they represent.”

Clover Stroud, Freelance Journalist
Conde Nast Traveller, The Daily Telegraph, Country & Town House, National Geographic Traveller

“Over the past 15 years whilst writing for The Sunday Telegraph, The Sunday Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Tatler, National Geographic Traveller, I have worked with both Issy Abel Smith and Olivia Graham in their roles as PRs within the travel industry. Both bring great creativity to the way they pitch and formulate stories for journalists. They think well beyond travel, into the world of luxury and family lifestyle journalism, which is the reason I’ve worked with them so frequently. They are both also a pleasure to work with – always impeccably professional, but also friendly and genuine. I will always read and respond to a press release they send me.”

Daisy Finer, Editor at Large
Conde Nast Traveller

“Issy & Olivia are one of the most trusted voices in Travel PR, with heaps of experience across the board and a real passion for all areas of travel. Crucially they have a unique ability in matching the right story with the right publication – a great and highly efficient skill. I have worked with both Olivia and Issy at Tatler, Country & Town House and Traveller and they are always a joy to work with: articulate, organised and professional as well as great fun.”
