We’re always excited to bring new Managed Partners into the Brilliant Travel family – but recently we brought on a new Managed Partner who we are thrilled to be working with. It’s our very first Welsh Managed Partner! Say hello to Darren who has just opened his first travel agency, Snowdonia, in the town of Colwyn Bay along the Welsh coastline!
Hi Darren, tell us a little bit about yourself
Hi there! I’m Darren, I’m 44 years old, and from North Wales. I have worked in the travel industry for my whole career starting when I was just 16 years old. Fun fact: I speak both English and Welsh.
How long have you been running Snowdonia for?
We’re actually brand new! Snowdonia opened its doors on the 29th of July.
What do you when you’re not running your own business?
I am very house proud and spend a lot of my time cleaning, cooking, ironing and walking my dogs when I am not talking travel or spending time with his family.
What’s your favourite holiday destination and why?
My favourite destination is Greece and Zante, in my opinion, is the best island. The beaches are beautiful and I love how everything is close to hand (including airport transfers).
And if you had one piece of advice for a Travel Consultant looking to open their own travel agency, what would it be?
I encourage consultants to do their homework! Analyse the market, think about what you want to specialise in and what the people around you are looking for in a holiday – find your gap in the market!
