Oliver's favorite cities are New York, London and Nice.
Oliver lists his greatest travel luxury as being a air of linen French Connection painter trousers which are perfect for everything, be it the plane, on the beach or even going out for dinner.
Oliver's dream holiday is to travel by boat to Holland then go overland to Moscow. He'd then like to take the Trans-Manchurian Express to China, travel across and take a boat to Japan then go around the "arse end of the world" to California, across to New York and then fly back home.
In November 2006, Oliver broke his ankle.

Oliver narrated the Alex Rider series of audio-books by Anthony Horowitz.

Oliver: (his best meal abroad) There's a medieval village on the Côte d'Azur called Eze, which is pretty much owned by two hotels. The Chèvre d'Or is phenomenally expensive but the Château Eza is very similar but cheaper. I had the most amazing seven-course set lunch there. We were there for hours and were treated like kings.
Oliver: (Beach bum, culture vulture or adrenalin junkie?) All three, at any time.
Oliver: (his ideal travelling companion) My girlfriend. We hardly ever get the chance to travel together because of the nature of our work - she's a doctor - so we have to book things at the last minute.
Oliver: (on what he's learnt from his travels) I suppose I have a better appreciation of different cultures. When I was in India I really enjoyed walking down the street and being the only white face.
Oliver: (his favourite hotel) We stayed at the Jagat Niwas Palace Hotel in Udaipur, India. Our room had a huge bay window, which was cantilevered over Lake Pichola. It was so beautiful.
Oliver: (his worst travel experience) My girlfriend and I had some time off so we asked all our friends to recommend somewhere to go; they said the Bay Islands of Honduras. It was completely the wrong time of year to go, there were tropical storms and hundreds of mosquitoes. We ended up going to Nicaragua, which thankfully was amazing.
Oliver: (his favourite place in the British Isles) I have recently discovered Cornwall and I love it. Places like Sennen Cove and the Lizard are just so beautiful. Roskilly's ice-cream and apple juice are fantastic, too.
Oliver: (his best holiday) I've just come back from Argentina where I went hiking around the Torres del Painewith a couple of mates. After that we went to the Valdes Peninsula where we went scuba-diving with sea lions - they're like underwater Labradors, they're just so friendly.
Oliver: (his first holiday memory) One year in France my brother went off to climb a hill and got lost. Fortunately my dad found him in the end.
Oliver: (on not liking magazines) I might buy a magazine if it had Kylie on the cover, but it would have to be for a very long train journey.
