Basingstoke Branch


Welcome to Hays Travel Basingstoke! I'm Ashley and I joined Hays Travel in April 2017 as Manager when the Basingstoke store first opened. I have worked in this exciting industry for nine years. My favourite destination to travel to is the Far East and I specialise in tailor-made and long haul itineraries. I also have great knowledge on cruising having been on many myself. I have also visited the Canary Islands over 15 times; so can definitely recommend the right one for you.

Megan is my Assistant Manager and has worked for Hays for three years. She started off as an Apprentice in Hays Travel Romsey branch. Megan is our New York, Las Vegas, and Florida specialist; having visited these places herself, she can definitely recommend the must do’s and see’s!

Jo works as a part-time Travel Consultant and has worked in travel for over 20 years. She has previously worked onboard cruise ships and across the UK as a singer, dancer, and part of the entertainment team. Jo is our family and UK specialist and she also has fantastic knowledge of the Caribbean having visited whilst working onboard P&O and Ocean Village cruise lines. Charlie is the youngest member of my team and started with Hays Travel Basingstoke in August as a Travel Apprentice. Charlie is currently completing her NVQ 3 and has travelled to Italy, France, Spain, Holland, and Iceland. We also have a Foreign Exchange Bureau where we can offer amazing advice on any foreign currency, along with offering the best rates in town!

We pride ourselves on customer service and strive to welcome new customers into our brand new branch. With our dedicated and experienced travel consultants, we will use our knowledge to help you find the perfect holiday. From beach holidays to city breaks, faraway holidays to tailor-made itineraries and cruises. Hays Travel is the UK’s largest independent travel agent. We offer impartial advice and we guarantee to find you the perfect holiday.

Local community partnership

To show support to our friends from St. Michaels Hopsice, we organised an Easter Hamper Raffle and raised £62 for this great cause.
