“Our customers mean the world to us”…that’s what we believe here at Holiday Extras.

We talk to around 1m customers a year and our aim is to make each holiday experience a positive and memorable one. We believe in providing outstanding service that results in Holiday Extras ‘Making Travel Easy’ for every customer.

The Contact Centre is made up of teams that manage inbound calls, emails and live chat. Some of our consultants work from home and we sell a range of products, including: airport parking, hotels, lounge passes, insurance, rail travel and a number of essential extras.

We are currently looking for team members to join us on a fixed term contract until the end of September/October 2017 to help us during our busy summer period.

You will take a genuine interest in where the customer is going on their trip to get them in the holiday mindset & create a memorable customer experience. Through building meaningful connections with our customers, you can establish the customer’s needs, tailoring the service you provide and identify additional sales opportunities.
