Havant branch profile

I have been working in the travel industry for 27 years and have worked for Hays travel for 10.5 years. I became manager of the Havant branch in 2012, after managing our Winchester branch for 3.5 years and the Bishops Waltham branch prior to that. I previously worked for Lunn Poly, who later became Thomson/Tui. I have visited many fantastic destinations in the world, however, my favourite destination has to be Australia – due to its diversity, wonderful aboriginal rock art and history and some fantastic adrenaline pumping attractions – as well as some of the most amazing scenery in the world.

My team consists of Katy, she has built up over 15 years experience and has a wide knowledge of various destinations – although Disney is one of her favourite destinations! We have 2 apprentices – Jess who has recently joined us from Newport on the Isle of Wight and Ben who joined us in august 2015. Jess has a travelled to many destinations and finds it hard to choose a favourite! Ben has travelled to lots of European destinations but Australia is his favourite destination.

We are on market parade in Havant – almost opposite Iceland. We book a very diverse range of holidays – from day trips to around the world holidays. We do specialise in Australia, as Darren is a premier Aussie specialist (a qualified Aussie specialist – after completing the training modules produced by tourism Australia and travelling to the country 10 times). We have a fantastic bureau – which will be manned by our newest staff member Lyn. Our exchange rates are consistently the best in town and we hold a wide range of currency in stock.

How we engage with the local community

At Hays Travel Havant, we are passionate about helping our local community and raising funds for our chosen charity, The Rowans Hospice. Most of the team here have had a family member who has used, or would have benefited from, the fantastic service that The Rowans Hospice provides.

On 13th September 2015, we hosted a 'Mystery Coach Tour' and managed to raise £630 through ticket sales and a raffle on the coach. All our 43 passengers had a fantastic day in Brighton — our mystery location for the trip! Coming up, we have a Christmas raffle with some great prizes up for grabs, including Hays Travel holiday vouchers! We hope this will raise even more funds for the charity.
