Owner & Managing Director of Excelle Travel Ltd.

Alison started her love affair with travel when she spent time as a Travel Rep working for ILG in Spain where she spent her formative years looking after Holidaymakers from landing to leaving.

On her return to the UK Alison knew that there was only one place for her and that was in the travel industry and she took a sales position with then Picfords Travel in Leeds which eventually became Going Places. Alison won numerous sales awards including top selling agent in the Going Places Group. Alison moved her career forward eventually managing her own store and again the awards and accolades started to flow becoming one of the top selling shops in the Group and Top Shop North of England.

When Thomas Cook took over Going Places Alison was asked to run two stores whilst the business restructured. Alison was presented with one of their brand new show case stores for all her efforts again winning many more sales awards along the way.

Following yet another restructure Alison decided that it was time for her to take her love of travel and providing dream holidays for her customers to another level and set up her own business and Excelle Travel Ltd was born.

Now in its third year and going from strength to strength Excelle Travel became the winners of the Best Newcomer Award at the Global Travel Awards in 2014 following this up by winning The Best Travel Agency UK North at the Global Travel Awards 2015.

’Providing the right holiday experiences for our customers whilst ensuring that we deliver outstanding service is what we are all about, like it says on the page Your Dreams are Our Business’’

‘’Travel a bug that you never quite recover from the more you do the more you want to do’’
