A NEW travel agency specialising tailor made holidays has opened its doors in Colwyn Bay.

Snowdonia Travel is located on Sea View Road.

Darren Owen, the owner who was made redundant earlier this year after working for a major travel agency for 27 years, said: “I think there are plenty of opportunities for the business despite people buying holidays on the internet.

“What the business will be focussing upon is up market holidays, luxury cruises, river cruises and tailor made holidays.

"I know people still like a personal touch, a lot of people won’t do the research themselves and are reluctant to put their cash on line.

“My experience shows people want to be advised an expert. My staff, whom I’ve worked with for years. have a total of more than 80 years in the business, so we are well placed to give advice and guidance.”

Darren, who worked for a major travel agency for 27 years, was made redundant in May, and has taken some of his colleagues into the new business.
