Holiday Warriors was born amidst the pandemic back in May 2020. I was unfortunately affected by the economic downturn, yet I felt strangely elated that it was an opportunity to complete my own circle of life in travel.
I started as an apprentice in my parents Travel Agency in Kent straight from school. Vista Travel was an Independent Travel franchise and a pathway I was destined to follow. I embarked on a career in some well known travel agencies and tour operators for over 35 years, taking care of clients and booking their yearly package holidays, from sun, sea and sand, to the once in a lifetime bucket list dreams! I encountered changing travel trends and some turbulent weather along the way. From rescuing clients stuck all around the world after 9/11, to the volcanic ash cloud in Iceland that closed skies, to finally repatriating in the most recent epidemic crisis March 2020. I have been privileged to explore the world through my job, arranging tours, conferences, and weddings which has built the foundations and is at the heart of my business.
The name Holiday Warriors was derived from my desire to fight back, protect my clients and fight for jobs for my team and family. I believe my travel business will grow as the skies open and clients will want an agent they can trust and turn to for advice and support. I believe I was destined to conquer my dreams and could not have achieved this without the right franchise company behind me. The Holiday Franchise company has been an incredible support and I look forward to partnering with them for many years to come, as I continue to complete my journey within my beloved travel industry.
