In late 2002 ex-Corporate Lawyer turned Internet Entrepreneur Charles Duncombe met with Travel Agency owner Richard Dixon. Shortly after, with an initial investment of just £6,000, Holidayspleasewas born.
Combining new technology and cutting edge web marketing, with an old school commitment to delivering outstanding levels of customer service, Holidaysplease grew rapidly. By 2005 sales were exceeding those transacted by Richard's high street travel shops. It was time to take Holidaysplease to the next level!
Holidaysplease joined the Hays Independence Group, part of Hays Travel, the largest independently owned travel company in the UK. This provided the launch pad for further expansion.
The business consistently achieved double-digit growth and was soon picking up National and Supplier awards a plenty. 3 times Holidaysplease was named online travel agent of the year at the nationally recognised Agent Achievement Awards, in 2011, 2014 and again in 2019.Most recently we were awarded Top Online Agency at the TTG Top 50 awards in 2019 and Top Homeworking Agent at the TTG Top 50 in 2018.
2013 saw Mr John McEwan join the Board at Holidaysplease. John is ex-Chairman of ABTA, and a past Managing Director of Thomas Cook in the UK. His incredibly successful career in travel spans 50 years and his energy and passion for the travel business have already proved to be a major asset to the Holidaysplease Team.
In 2015 Holidaysplease invested in prestigious new offices centrally located in Birmingham.
From humble beginnings, the business is now a sizeable and respected travel business numbering over 110 people.
Our business continues to grow and expand and we need talented travel professionals to join us on our journey.

See what our homeworkers say:
I used to work for a high end agency that put a lot of targets and pressure on you to perform. I moved to Holidaysplease over 10 years ago and it is literally the best career choice I have ever made. I have all the luxury enquiries I can deal with without the added pressure of targets and performing so I actually perform better and have tripled my wages which is great. So Holidaysplease all the way for me.
Homeworking was something which had always interested me but I'd not taken the plunge before coming across Holidaysplease. Compared with the other companies I looked at, Holidaysplease struck me as being a little different... a more personal feel and very supportive of a new homeworker.
I was also attracted by both the quality and quantity of the enquiries promised. In the last five years, I've not been disappointed!
What's great about Holidaysplease is that as long as you work hard you can work your own schedule treating it like your own business. This is great because if a client would like a call later that evening you can do that. It's a real sales advantage to say that we are here anytime! It's a tough market place out there, that's why you need a solid company that specialises in a strong area of the market and sticks to what they're good at. Holidaysplease is doing just that.
