Welcome to Hays Travel Aylsham, where I am proud to be the Manager and lead my happy team - between the six of us we have over 100 years' of travel knowledge! I have been working in the travel industry since leaving college over 30 years ago. I opened this branch in 2011 and have great pride in how we have blossomed into an incredibly successful travel agency with a huge amount of repeat loyal clients. We love welcoming new clients from recommendations on a daily basis. Of course, aside from the obvious passion of travelling ourselves, it is the most rewarding job in the world booking clients' holidays and making their dreams a reality. My favourite three places to travel to are Mauritius, Canada, and Barbados. Although closer to home I love Majorca; which is close to my heart after spending many holidays there, dating back to when I was a child myself.
Let me introduce you to my team.
Sam, my Assistant Manager, has been in travel all her working life. Her favourite destinations are New York and The Maldives. She has been known to do a crazy day trip to a country just to experience the place in a few hours! We also have Lauren who has worked in travel for over 18 years mainly with TUI and Virgin, as well as being an experienced trainer for TUI. Her favourite destination is Florida. Kerri has recently joined us and knows all things travel having spent her whole career in travel. Lydia is our Apprentice and is just about to complete her first year training. She fits in to our team perfectly. Elyse is joining us as our new 1st year Apprentice and having completed 2 years Travel & Tourism at college we know she will be a quick learner and will enjoy working in our happy team.
We specialise in all types of holidays from world cruises and bespoke luxury holidays to city breaks and UK breaks. Between us, we have covered most of the world and experienced many different cruise lines. We also offer competitive rates for foreign currency and give preferential rates to our customers.
The whole team was bouncing with positivity after our recent fundraising activity. To show our support for the Coronary Care Unit at Norwich Hospital we have arranged a Boogie Bounce event and held a raffle in branch.
We really gave our everything for this event because of the exceptional care the members of staff from the Hospital have given to the partner of one of our colleagues. Support from family and friends was incredible and we also were fortunate to have local businesses and tour operators donating wonderful prizes for our raffle.
On the day we held 2 sessions and we were pleasantly surprised by the high turnout. Everyone enjoyed the activity and donated very generously.
We have managed to raise over £3000 for this amazing cause! Thank you all for your support from the bottom of our hearts.
