Darwen Travel has been helping the people of Darwen and surrounding areas enjoy stress-free holidays since January 2022.
Their tailored, warm and hassle-free service demonstrates the continued need for physical travel agencies, even in a digital world. A friendly face and the convenience of being able to pop in and ask a question directly continues to be invaluable in Darwen.
Bringing two decades of travel experience to Darwen Town Centre
Owners, Joanne and Anita, are proud Darreners who also love to travel. They have two decades of travel and business experience between them, and both worked at the popular Altham’s branch in Darwen before it closed its doors last year.
Joanne and Anita didn’t want to leave Darwen without a reliable travel service, and knew that it would be sorely missed by many. It’s a misconception that travel agencies are only appreciated by the older generations, and Joanne and Anita felt sure that a reputable independent travel agency would be well used by all ages. This inspired them to take the plunge and begin their own travel agent business – and Darwen Travel was born.
The business is run from Foundry Street, just off Bolton Road in Darwen Town Centre. The shop is conveniently located nearby free parking, and close to the town centre’s other main attractions, such as Darwen Market, Bridge Street and the plethora of cafes and bars. You can easily fit a trip to Darwen Travel in during a Saturday enjoying Darwen Town Centre.
An inviting and friendly travel agency
Darwen Travel’s shop is inviting, modern and clean, with comfortable seats in which to sit back, relax and discuss your next dream holiday, whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime cruise, UK trip, beach vacation, city break, skiing experience or coach trip. Joanne and Anita are more than happy to put the kettle on and invite you in for a no obligation chat about the kind of break you’re envisaging.
As travel lovers themselves, they understand that a holiday isn’t just a holiday for most. It’s a rare treat that we look forward to for months, and a time to switch off from daily life and have a much needed and well deserved relax. Therefore, you want to ensure everything is organised to a tee and going to run smoothly, especially during current times, when there are often extra forms to fill in and rules to consider.
Expert travel advice when you need it most
Joanne and Anita can offer travel advice on current requirements, which has proven extremely useful for many customers.
Their extensive knowledge of the travel industry and all its in and outs means they are also able to chase and process refunds and changes to your itinerary on your behalf. No one likes to think about their holiday not going to plan, but having the peace of mind that you’re protected and have a strategy in place if it comes to it, is invaluable, and simply not a service you get when booking a holiday by yourself online.
Book your next break with Darwen Travel – support local!
Having said that, Darwen Travel understands that not everyone is able to get to the shop in person. That’s why they welcome telephone and social media enquiries, and make it as easy as possible to book through them. (You can call them on 01254 943050.)
With regular deals and offers available to take advantage of, you may also be surprised at how cost effective booking via Darwen Travel is. Be sure to follow them on Facebook to keep up to date with current discounts.
