Our team of travel specialists 

Nic Hathaway, Branch Manager Nic joined Bideford Travel in 2019, and has spent his entire 32 year career working in the Travel Industry, it's in his blood! Nic loves to travel and loves his job because he can help others travel the world and make their dreams come true.  Throughout Nic's career he has been lucky enough to travel to some fantastic and unusal destinations, both for holiday and work. Nic says that the most unusual destination was travelling to Siberia for work in a January when it was -44c and then taking the Transiberian Express back to Moscow. His best personal holiday was to Vietnam, a country full of colour, warmth, and fantastic food. And the driving, that's something else!  Top holiday tip: "Take every opportunity you have to travel, never regret not going somewhere or not doing something when you're on holiday. It may be the one time that you will have to experience that opportunity, so never look back and regret not taking it."  Destinations travelled to: too many to mention, 52 in total, including, Russia | Vietnam | USA | Canada | Italy | Cyprus | Poland | Czech Republic | Greece | India | South Africa | Thailand | Hong Kong | the Caribbean | Mauritius | Ireland | Spain | Hungary + more 

Janine Marsh, Travel Consultant Janine started working at our Braunton shop in February 2018 and moved to work in our Bideford shop in 2021. Janine has worked in travel for many years and thoroughly enjoys it. It's a passion of hers to sell travel, to learn about travel and she really enjoys seeing how happy it makes people. She says "it doesn't feel like a job when you enjoy it so much".  Top holiday tip: "My top tip is to go anywhere with an open mind enjoy the moment and relax. You'll never get that moment back. Take pictures lots of them, live for the moment, talk to the locals, try the food and take the boat trip."  Destinations travelled to: Egypt | Poland | Germany | Italy | France | Spain | Bali | Australia | USA | Turkey | Tunisia | Singapore | Netherlands
