The Travel Shop, West Midlands

Our Story

In 1988, following fifteen years at Birmingham-based tour operator, Horizon Midlands, the time had come to go it alone. Alan and Kay established The Travel Shop on Birmingham Road, Wylde Green, with a passion to deliver knowledgable, friendly, honest advice on the high street and create affordable, tailor-made holidays for their clients.

Thirty years later, that purpose burns ever brighter. In an industry that has become almost unrecogniseable with the growth of the online market, we are proud to be standing our ground and serving a loyal and growing client base.

Meet the Team

Our team is experienced and trusted, with family at its heart. Louise, then a YTS, joined the company more than 25 years ago. In 2008, Alan and Kay welcomed their son Simon to the company, and more recently, their daughter Helen on a part time basis.
