Travel agent wins Sinitta gig with Jet2holidays

Pop star Sinitta will perform at an independent travel agency’s new store after the business won a competition with Jet2holidays.

Olive Lounge Travel will welcome the singer – popular for 1980s classics such as So Macho – for an exclusive gig at its new branch in the Lancashire village of Barrowford on October 10.


Olive Lounge Travel was chosen by Jet2holidays after independent agents were asked to post a message on the operator’s social media channels supporting Sinitta.


Founded by Gillian Polyhos and Joanne Edwards as a home-based agency in 2015, the Barrowford shop is the company’s second in two years following its first store in Cross Hills in Yorkshire, which opened its doors in 2016.


The business currently has a team of six full-time staff and its decision to expand will see further appointments made over the coming months.


Polyhos 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 hosting this fantastic competition, but for the way they have supported us as a partner since day one.”


Admission for the show is by ticket only, which must be applied for in store or by entering Olive Lounge Travel’s Facebook competition at: www.facebook.com/oliveloungetravel/


Independent travel agents interested in learning more about partnering with Jet2holidays should visit the operator’s dedicated trade site: trade.jet2holidays.com
