Hays Travel

Garden Party
Every summer, Hays Travel staff are invited to John Hays' home near Sunderland for the event of the season – the Hays Garden Party. There's live music, Pimms, Champagne and plenty of dancing, guaranteed. Last summer, the party was bigger than ever, with over 300 employees in attendance.
Christmas Party
Our Christmas party is a talking point for many months, before and after the event. Outfits are planned long in advance and the night is always a knees up to be proud of. There is dinner and dancing, as well as an awards ceremony to recognise everyone?s hard work during the year.
High Flyer
Hays Travel 'high flyers' celebrate once a year with a swanky night out at a posh hotel. The event is organised to say congratulations to all members of staff who have reached their personal targets that year, as well as to celebrate with those who have been with the company for more than 20 years. The high flyers and loyal service employees are treated to a Bucks Fizz reception before dinner, awards and a disco. Loyal service staff are also presented with a specially designed glass award, personally engraved by John Hays.
Christmas Panto
Hays Travel sponsors the pantomime at the Customs House theatre in South Shields every year and for one night in the season we book out the entire theatre for Hays staff and their children to enjoy the show, free of charge. It's always packed to the rafters and a fun night out for Hays youngsters (and a few big kids too!)
Hays Travel in the Community
Staff at Hays Travel have always engaged with their local communities and each branch is given a sponsorship budget to use supporting local causes of their choice. Fundraising events for local community groups and charities are a regular part of the calendar. Branches also 'adopt' a local school, where they get involved with school life, talking at careers days, sponsoring geography prizes and attending prize givings.
