Abi Hyslop

Head of Leisure Travel

I’ve worked in the travel industry for 17 years, and I’ve been lucky enough to gain experience in various roles such as long-haul cabin crew for British Airways, operations manager for Good Travel Management and Head of Operations for Pure Destinations. I love travelling and enjoy nothing more than sharing my travel experience and knowledge with my team and our customers. I’m extremely passionate about customer service and ensure our team here at Destina will always go the extra mile to help our clients plan and book the perfect holiday.

Favourite Destination:

Bali is a fantastic multi-centre destination. Combining the culture and wildlife of Ubud, located in the central hills with the cosmopolitan beach resort of Seminyak, perfect for quality dining and chic nightlife.

Most Memorable Travel Experience:

Driving the Pacific coast highway from San Francisco to Los Angeles in an American Dodge Challenger muscle car. Lots of photo opportunities with stunning scenery and stopping off in gorgeous beach resorts along the route.

Three Must See Destinations:

Australia is so wonderfully varied. The Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Ayers Rock, Bondi Beach, Fraser Island, Perth…the list of highlights is endless.

Thailand is also fantastically diverse, from the bustle of Bangkok to the peaceful Thai islands. 

Italy for history, romance - and delicious food!

Wander the back streets to find off-the-tourist-track trattorias that locals love. 

Top Travel Tip:

If you want to pack delicate items for romantic meals and evenings out, copy designer boutiques and place tissue paper within the folds.
