Olive Lounge Travel is the latest in a long line of independent travel agents to benefit from our partnership approach to working with them, and they will now be hosting an exclusive performance by pop icon Sinitta, after winning a social media competition that we hosted.

The exclusive gig by Sinitta on Wednesday 10th October will headline a launch event designed to celebrate Olive Lounge Travel’s brand new Barrowford branch, located on Gisburn Road in Barrowford, near Colne in Lancashire. This is the company’s second retail branch, in addition to its popular store in Crosshills near Keighley, West Yorkshire, which opened in 2016.

Founded as a home-based agency in 2015, Olive Lounge Travel has gone from strength to strength, thanks to the partnership approach of Jet2holidays which means the agency has benefited from joint marketing campaigns and promotional activity, such as a branded gazebo which was set up when the Tour de France visited Yorkshire – resulting in great interest and sales.

Gillian Polyhos, Co-Founder of Olive Lounge Travel said: “We have enjoyed enormous success since launching three years ago, and have quickly become one of the leading independent travel agencies in the area. We are very excited to be opening our second branch in Barrowford, and we’re incredibly grateful to Jet2holidays, not just for this hosting this fantastic competition, but for the way they have supported us as a partner since day one.”

Admission to the launch event is by ticket only, and these must be applied for in person in the store.
