Our Journey

Red Russian Lifestyle & Travel is the brainchild of PR girl Zeri Cheetham-Karcz, who launched sub-travel brand Swan Parties LTD in May 2017. The booming luxury hen party market expanded into launching high-end bachelor parties, Stallion Parties in 2019. Each enquiry is managed from start to finish with Zeri and her team of travel experts, creating bespoke travel packages tailored to suit whatever the client desires.


Where it all began

Since setting up the travel consultancy, Zeri was also requested to look after newlyweds looking for honeymoon destinations and with her contacts in the corporate market, a demand for corporate travel also followed suit.

You may have seen Zeri grace your TV screens on dramas such as Waterloo Road, Cracker, New Street Law and Scott & Bailey. After 15 years in the entertainment industry and graduating with a PR degree at Leeds University, she set up Manchester-based PR agency, Red Russian PR working with a host of fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands.

‘Red Russian Lifestyle & Travel is not your average travel supplier. We are a consultancy and concierge service tailoring travel, transport and bespoke itineraries for individuals and groups. We book everything from flights, private transfers, luxury accommodation, activities and events planning.’

‘PR was where I started my career, but my love for travel has allowed me to expand my brand into the luxury travel market. I have been lucky enough to travel to destinations all over the world with my husband, with groups of friends and also with work, so it seemed a natural progression to launch a bespoke travel service to cater this gap in the market.’

We plan, we book, you play
