Ryde branch profile

Welcome to Hays Travel Ryde, my name is Alexis and I am the Branch Manager of Hays Travel in Ryde. I have worked in the Travel Industry for over 17 years and could not imagine myself doing anything else. Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to live in and explore so much of the world and specialise in Greece, Spain and Cruises.

I am a proud Manager of 9 members of staff. My team consists of Kerry our Assistant Manager who is our specialist for Africa and has been a member of the company for 10 years. Neil is one of our senior consultants and has over 25 years of travel experience, specialising in Asia and the Far East. Our part-time travel consultants Chris and Carly are full of extensive knowledge ranging from short-haul summer sun holidays to the luxury of the Caribbean.

In our busy Foreign Exchange Bureau I have 2 expert consultants Sarah and Julie whom between them have over 40 years travel experience and are always willing to help answer any questions or queries. I currently have 3 apprentices; Edward, Shanie and Darcy who love to learn and are always willing to help everyone with any questions. Between them they have visited many of the Greek Islands.

Here at Hays Travel Ryde we not only pride ourselves on our knowledge but also our excellent customer service we enjoy seeing familiar faces but also love meeting new ones so make sure you pop in and say hello next time your passing.

How we engage with the local community

Our Ryde branch is helping to bring a local carnival group back together after funding for its meeting venue was withdrawn last year!

The Ryde-based VIVA Carnival Club was left with no place to hold its dance, music, crafts, and costume-making workshops when local council funding for its building was stopped – so our Ryde branch got involved! VIVA Carnival Club, which formed in 2012, brings disabled and non-disabled adults together to engage in various carnival activities. These include dancing and creating costumes that are paraded in local carnivals.

Alexis Ryde Branch Manager is a long-time volunteer and active co-chair for VIVA Carnival Club. She teaches weekly classes, helps supervise events, assists costume-making sessions, and helps with organisation and fund-raising.

The Isle of Wight hosts more than 6 winter and 18 summer parades each year and the Ryde team know how important participation in carnival events means to people on the Island and Alexis has seen how it can really help those with disabilities build confidence and self-esteem.
