We are looking to build a brand new online travel agents with a bit of a twist. We will only be supplying pools holidays which means we can put all of our focus on to one niche and make sure that we can provide the BEST prices!
Our biggest twist though is the work we plan to do with local charities around the country, which will involve sending the less fortunate on holidays they couldn't otherwise afford. The idea is that for every Holiday that is booked through us, 10% of the profit will be put in to our Charity Holiday Fund which will be used soley to send families on Holiday.
We will target families who have been effected by Job Loss, Illness and who have no way of just getting away for a little bit to recharge. Many of us take for granted the ability we have to just book a holiday and leave the stress of our lives behind for a week or two, some aren't so lucky.
We will also be running monthly draws to give away at least 5 holidays a month and tickets will be priced at £5 each. Again, 10% of the profits raised by this will go in to the Charity Holiday Fund.
