Budleigh Salterton branch profile

I joined Hays Travel Budleigh Salterton as Manager in April 2011 and bring with me over 17 years travel industry experience. I started my working career as a nanny for a few years in England, France and America, which developed my passion for travel. USA is my love and I was lucky enough to travel extensively during my time there. I have also been on-board many cruise ships, from Fred Olsen and P&O Cruises to Regent Seven Seas and Silversea.

Rebekah is our Assistant Manager, she has visited many destinations including Greece, Tunisia, Turkey and Portugal, travel has always been Rebekah's passion and cannot wait to explore many more destinations. Claire began working in the travel industry in 1996, as a fluent Italian speaker, where she lived for two years, she has travelled extensively throughout Italy and recently enjoyed a trip on the Orient Express to Venice and Florence and has also visited Croatia.

Laura is our Second Year Apprentice who joined Hays Travel in September 2014. Her favourite destination is Sri Lanka as it was amazing to visit the turtle orphanage as well as riding an elephant. Jade is our first year apprentice who joined Hays Travel in September 2015 after previously working as Cabin Crew before taking a break to have a family.

We specialise in cruises, long haul getaways, tailor-made holidays and UK breaks; together with great destination knowledge of Italy, USA and Latin America. We also offer competitive rates on foreign currency and a buy back service for your leftover holiday money with our new in-store foreign exchange service.

How we engage with the local community

Two of the team, Kate & Jade did a skydive on behalf of Dream-A-Way, an Exeter based charity whose aim is to assist people living in Devon & Cornwall with physical and learning difficulties. They provide grants towards holidays and provide day trips - whether it is fulfilling a lifetime dream, experiencing great opportunities or just having 'time out' from daily routines. Both Kate and Jade jumped 15,000 ft at Dunkerswell, which involved 60 seconds of free fall, and a once in a lifetime experience.

On 24th April 2016, Claire ran the London Marathon in aid of the Exmouth Beach Rescue Club, this was a fantastic achievement as it was her first ever at the full distance. Claire raised £1251.74 by running a "Guess my time" competition, and the winners received lovely prizes, such as a Magnum of champagne, a Bavgari Fragrance set, travel holiday voucher and a huge chocolate hamper, all supplied by our tour and cruise operator partners.

The Exmouth Beach Rescue Club was formed in 1986 as a volunteer life guard charity. They patrol Exmouth sea front on Sundays throughout the Summer season as well as training in surf life saving sport throughout the year for juniors and seniors. The club are raising money to purchase a defibrillator for public use for when the hut is unmanned and the funds raised will go towards this.
