Hays Travel Independence Group

Run by travel people, for travel people.

In 1980, with only a desk at the back of his mother’s children’s wear shop in Seaham, County Durham, John Hays opened the first Hays Travel branch. The company has come a long way since its humble beginnings, and today we are proud to be the UK’s largest independent travel agent.

In 1995, the Hays Travel Independence Group was formed with the goal of helping other independent travel companies become a success, with the support of Hays Travel’s buying power, technology, and back-office expertise.

A key ingredient to the Independence Group’s success is our passion for travel and people; as an independent travel agent with over 40 years of experience, we have real insight into the business.

With a dedicated support team we offer a personal service. Alongside this support, we also allow you the space to concentrate on the running of your own business, allowing a truly independent status and identity. This means you decide all of your own policies, including marketing and discounting, whilst getting the best tour operator and supplier commission rates and overrides.

We are passionate about travel and are equally passionate to see you succeed. We are confident that together we can reach your business aspirations.

“When people support each other incredible things happen”


“A motivated person is someone who is inspired, appreciated and does far more than is expected”

“It’s not about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen”

“Respect is earned, honesty is appreciated, trust is gained, and loyalty is returned”

“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well”

Greece, cannot wait to return!

Booked another holiday through Hays. Our "go to" agency especially having staff like "Disney Debbie" on hand to guide & advise on the best deals. All the team in the Failsworth branch including Jade are so friendly & knowledgable. Would highly recommend! 👍😁

Date of experience : 19 January 2024

Very disappointed

Very disappointed, we booked our holiday a few weeks ago to go to Tenerife for 2 weeks. Just realised we are going when it's half term for the children!!! So we have paid more and now have to put up with kids running around 😒 Apparently according to the manager it's down to us pensioners to know when the holidays are or specify no children!? We were happy to go anytime in February so if we had been advised we would have gone the following week, saved some money and had a peaceful holiday. Won't be using them again 🤬

Reply from Hays Travel

I am so sorry you are disappointed however if you had asked for adults only and not in the school holidays we would have been more than happy to accommodate your request.We would never had purposely booked the school holidays if we had known your preference and also you were very excited when you left with the holiday and the hotel choice Sandra had booked for you and she looked at lots of various dates for you

Prague-a world of difference but only2hours away

Amazing Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance architecture. Loads to do, cheap lager, english spoken everywhere and incredible historic events. Really different long weekend break but so quick to fly to. We did a January Monday to friday stay with Hayes travel as a package. Very happy with everything. Only thing we weren't warned about was "Tourist Tax" which had to be paid on checking out. No big deal as it worked out about £13.50. Would highly recommend Prague and Hayes travel

Date of experience : 15 January 2024

Luci at the Nantwich was fabulous

Luci at the Nantwich was fabulous. We booked our first cruise and nothing was too much trouble. She was extremely helpful and polite and even though we have paid in full she is still continuing to help us with our holiday, booking parking and helping with passports and check in. Thanks Luci, look forward to booking more holidays with you!

Helpful, polite and efficient.…

The young lady listened to our request and immediately got in touch with the relevant company to put both the travel arrangements and hotels. The whole thing was booked in about half an hour. The full itinerary arrived by email a couple of days later.

Date of experience : 25 January 2024

Thank-you for taking the time to provide this feedback. I'll make sure your kind words are passed onto Charlotte - Tasha, Branch Manager.

Holiday booked for 2025!

Went into Hays Travel in Northfield to book a holiday with our grandson for June 2025. We were seen by Suzanne who was really helpful and knowledgeable and who was able to match the price of an all-inclusive holiday found on-line. We have booked through Hays Travel several times & have never been disappointed

Loved booking your holiday to Lanzarote, you will have the best time. Thanks Suzanne

Brilliant service

Brilliant service, was quick and easy and alot cheaper than i could get myself online. Even helped me on a sunday afternoon interupting his Sunday lunch! Will certainly be using for every holiday going forward.

Thankyou, you're welcome..

Excellent service

We went into the store not knowing exactly what we wanted or where we wanted to go. Sophie was extremely patient and attentive to our needs. We looked at various board options to meet my husbands dietary needs and eventually decided on a resort based on Sophie's recommendation.

Date of experience : 21 January 2024

Thank you for this AMAZING review Laura! It was lovely meeting you both and I am sure you will have a great time in Caleta! -Sophie x
