The Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast: Peakes Travel Elite – 30 Years in!

Back in 2019 we spoke to Claire from Peakes Travel Elite, that was 3 years ago. A lot has happened in the last 3 years since we last spoke and boy do we have a treat for you today.

The best in any business has to adapt to survive, the travel industry got hit hard during the pandemic, yet there are those who are still here. Peakes celebrated their 30th year anniversary by inviting some of their travel agents to come along to a gathering in St Mary’s Church and AL got to speak to them.

We talk about 2 types of cruises that offer different experiences, the beauties of Florence in Italy, the majestic South East Asia and even Antarctica.

We also speak the Peakes’ Managing Director Claire Moore about how the company had to adapt to survive and won awards because of their efforts, Beth Heath from Shropshire Festivals who facilitated the event (who are also award winning) and Marg Lloyd, a friend who we spoke to years ago at Shrewsbury Prison.

The companies featured in this episode are: Silver Sea, Star Clippers, Typically Holidays, Latin Routes/Polar Routes and Trans Indus LTD.

I learned so much from this event and I get so passionate talking about travel and culture. So much so, it’s given me the itch to book a trip myself, warning this podcast may have the same effect on you too! -AL
