Taking flight at a location near you is one of the newly rebranded Escape Travel stores.
Newcastle-Lake Macquarie residents can look forward to the new-look travel provider when the award-winning travel chain owned and operated by the Pearson family rebrands as Escape Travel, a franchise network owned by Flight Centre Travel Group, from February 1.
The Pearson’s five new franchise additions join the 148-strong Escape Travel network nationally.
The locations in Kotara, Glendale, Toronto, Mt Hutton and Charlestown will switch from Harvey World Travel outlets to Escape Travel, coming under the wing of Australia’s leading getaway group in an exciting move for the travel industry.
The Pearson family’s travel agency business was founded in 1997 by Richard Pearson who built the business with sons Geoff and Adam, with the five agencies collectively employing 35 people and enjoying a reputation for excellence at the award-winning stores.
As Escape Travel stores, Geoff Pearson said customers could look forward to superior customer service and insider knowledge from travel experts alongside the pick of the best airfares, tours, cruises and accommodation from travel heavyweights.
Customers will also have access to exclusive holiday packages for couples and families with special child, teen and premium airfares, 24/7 for assistance from Escape Travel holiday experts and flexible payment options with six-month interest free packages, underpinned by the guarantee that Escape Travel won’t be beaten on price.
“As your holiday people at Escape Travel, our consultants can create a tailor-made escape for you, combining your preferred flights, tours, cruises and accommodation at the right price, with expert advice to guide you to an unforgettable getaway,” Geoff said.
“We are delighted at the prospect of becoming the face of Escape Travel in Newcastle and excited for what the future holds. We look forward to growing our business and taking it to a whole new level with Escape Travel.”
