Jodie Barber

Personal Travel Advisor

After leaving school to do Travel and Tourism for 3 years, I started out at high street travel agents. I then left there after 1 year to work for the Co-op Travel where I learnt so much and was promoted to Assistant Manager. It was such a great place to work, with the opportunity to visit lots of places. Helping all types of customers with their holidays is what I enjoyed most, seeing them coming back to the shop to tell us all about it was lovely. I moved onto an independent agent for a year before getting the chance to join BlueBay Travel. I have seen lots of changes in the industry, always keeping me on my toes, no day is ever the same and that’s why I love it. Blue Bay seems a fun place to work with knowledgeable staff and nothing is too much trouble for anyone I have come across. Like a big family.
