Hays Travel, the UK’s largest independent travel agent, specialises in providing good value, quality holidays alongside excellent customer service.
The company has come a long way since its humble beginnings. Today, we are proud to be the UK’s largest independent travel agent, our annual turnover is more than £1 billion, and we employ over 1700 people. Across the country we have more than 180 retail shops and over 250 experienced travel agents who work from their homes.
We also run the Hays Travel Independence Group; a consortium of independent travel retailers who benefit from Hays Travel’s buying power, technology and back office expertise.
And we’re growing all the time.
We’re also a company that cares. Our staff get involved in local community partnership projects on a regular basis and we’ve been awarded the prestigious Investors in People Silver status. One of my proudest achievements is our inclusion in the Sunday Times’ 100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK list.
Fully ABTA and ATOL bonded, we’re able to offer our customers complete financial security, and our independent status means we really can offer impartial advice to find them the perfect holiday. We work with hundreds of suppliers to ensure this.
Well-travelled and trained, our staff pride themselves in providing excellent customer service to every client who trusts us with their holiday arrangements. Our independence means we have access to a wide choice of tour operators and airlines, and we always endeavour to find the perfect holiday for the best possible price. As well as finding people their ideal holiday, we arrange all the extras like car hire, transfers and insurance. There’s a foreign exchange bureau in each of our branches across UK, where you can pick up commission free currency before you set off on holiday.
As we’re constantly expanding, we’re always looking for people to join the team. People who, like us, are passionate about the industry. People who want to enjoy the rewards of their work. People who want to share in the success of a company which continues to go from strength to strength.
