Employee Testimonies

Dom’s Happy Travels Testimonial:

I started working for Happy Travels in December 2016, after having worked at another travel agency for 6 months. Although both companies offered a similar service they couldn’t be more different in the way they dealt with customers and their own staff.

Happy’s are the best company I have ever worked for, upper management really care about every individual member of the team no matter what role or how long they have been at the company for, which I think is extremely rare nowadays.

The term “family” is used a lot at Happy Travels and I think it couldn’t be more fitting.
