Elaine Carr Branch Manager

Tell me about your travel background…

I’ve worked in travel for 26 years in in total, and joined Premier Travel in 1978 – I started in Royston where I was based for 10 years, then I moved over to our Newmarket office 16 years ago in 1998. I’ve been here ever since, and have been branch manager for the last 13 of those years.

Why do you love working in travel?

Because it’s such a happy thing to be selling! It’s a luxury product, it’s what makes people happy… we don’t tend to get miserable people coming to book their holidays!

Where have you travelled to…

Thailand; Phuket, Bangkok, Hua Hin, Koh Samui, Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Mauritius, Barbados, I’ve been on a Caribbean cruise, Dubai, Costa del Sol in Spain, the Greek Islands; Kos, Rhodes, Crete, Halkidiki, Corfu, the Algarve in Portugal, Menorca, Mallorca, Ibiza, Madeira, Croatia, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Tunisia, Malta, New York a few times, and Florida.

Where are you off to next?

I’m off to Spain for a long weekend – we go down to the Costa del Sol about six times a year! It’s very easy to get to, it’s got a good climate at any time of year, nice restaurants to enjoy… everything you could want.

Travel wishlist….

Las Vegas, as I would be fascinated to see the strip and all the hotels, the bright lights and experience the atmosphere.

Favourite holiday destination and why?

I’d love to go back to Thailand again next year – it’s without a doubt one of my favourite destinations, the people are amazing and the culture is wonderful; there are great beaches and beautiful hotels too.

Favourite travel memory and why?

Spending time in Thailand – the people are so humble; they don’t expect anything and just get on with their everyday life. Spending time with the local people when I was there was incredible.

Top Travel Tip?

Always mix your luggage with your travel companions – then you all have something of each other’s if needed!

Book with me because…

I’ve been local to the town for 26 years, I have a lot of repeat clients that come back to me, I have been in travel for over 25 years so I know the destinations we sell very well, and can offer my own first-hand knowledge when making a booking.

Never travel without…

Enough pairs of shoes to match your outfits!
