Trip Abroad with Flight Centre
We love Dublin Town but sometimes you need a break and one company helping to make dream holidays a reality is Flight Centre.
Located on Dawson Street, just a minute from the hustle and bustle of Grafton Street and a second from Dawson Street Luas Stop, Flight Centre is fast becoming the one-stop holiday master for the city. This Australian company set up in Dublin 3 years ago to bring a new wave of holiday offers to those seeking new adventures.
According to Flight Centre Manager Mark McGrath, there’s a love of adventure in this city and more and more people are looking for holidays that are more than just the usual resort.
“We offer tailor made holidays. Our slogan is All Travel, No Worries. That means people can come in, talk to us about what they want to do and we we will take it from there. The team have travelled to over 100 countries in the world between us and we have destination experts in the UK, who we can speak with to ensure we are offering the right holiday for you. Whatever people want, we can make it happen.
The team take personalities and hobbies into account when looking for the perfect getaway. “We get a lot of people coming in that are into Scuba Diving, they have their PADI license and want to continue that on. Yoga is also very popular at the moment and people are looking to go on Yoga retreats in somewhere like Bali or the Caribbean. We get a lot of niches which is great because we serve for these.”
When it comes to love-up couples seeking out their dream honeymoons Flight Centre has more than a few ideas for them to ensure this is the holiday to beat all holidays! “When it comes to honeymoons, couples are more than happy to wait until it’s the perfect time to go to their destination of choice. Like Mauritus, The Maldives, there are certain times of the year that are perfect to go and if you are spending all that money you want to go and not be lashed on the whole time!
“Then you have people who want to go a day or two after they get married and for that we have what’s call the sunshine search. This tells you where in the world is the best for sun that time of the year.”
Budgets of all kinds can be tailored for and the team are experienced enough to know that it’s unlikely that a 2k budget for a 5 star hotel trip to the Maldives is feasible, so they offer alternatives for that budget but without sacrificing someone’s dream holiday.
When it comes to Dublin City, Mark said the team love being located here. “There is always something going on here and being just off Grafton Street, the main shopping street of this city is great… Then you have so much restaurant choice on this street, it’s a great location for us.”
