Throughout August, existing and new customers are invited to pop into the branch between 10am and 4pm Monday to Saturday to meet the team and hear more about what they offer.

As a reader offer if you mention East Anglian Daily Times or Evening Star at the time of booking your holiday you will receive an extra £50 saving, when you book before August 31.

Fred. Olsen Travel Agents will continue to operate a ‘pop-up’ shop in Coes of Ipswich on the first Tuesday of every month for those customers who prefer to visit them there.

Fred. Olsen Travel Agents head of commercial, Paul Hardwick said: “Fred. Olsen Travel Agents and TravelQuest being together under one roof makes a lot of sense and I’m sure that our customers will appreciate how much more we can offer them from this fantastic central Ipswich location.
