A group of Brighton students are running their own travel agency.

The students, at City College Brighton and Hove, have relaunched City Travel in conjunction with Hays Travel, an established agency.

The aim is to give the travel and tourism students experience of making live bookings and dealing with customers.

City Travel is operating out of premises on the second floor of City College’s Pelham Tower building in Pelham Street, Brighton.

Students will handle bookings for short breaks, low-cost flights, package holidays, cheap luxury cruises, long-haul flights and tailor-made getaways.

All educational and college trips are booked through City Travel with profits from the agency being fed back into college funds to support students in their studies and enrichment activities.

The college’s City Travel co-ordinator Clare Embleton said: “Students and staff are delighted with this bright, fresh and funky new look for City Travel.

“Not only will the agency continue to give students the opportunity to fine-tune their skills and expertise, it’s also committed to providing an excellent service to staff, students and the general public alike.”

City Travel can be contacted on 01273 232638 or by email at citytravel@ccb.ac.uk.
