We love a bit of holiday nostalgia.

So this week, we got a few of the team at Holiday Discount Centre to go back – waaaay back – through their photo albums and dig out their old holiday snaps from years gone by.

Here are a couple of corkers that our staff Ian, Mark and Vicky found – perms, funny hats, stripey deckchairs and all…

Whitley Bay, 1976

Striking a pose on holiday in Whitley Bay – nice shorts, Ian.


Paris, 1989

The only thing that hasn’t changed in this picture is the Eiffel Tower!


Fuerteventura, 1994

When in the Canary Islands, we encourage everyone to embrace the holiday spirit.


Tunisia, 1998

In case there’s any doubt, Ian is the one in the middle.

And finally, let’s remember the time when Mark and Ian went to a travel convention in Spain…

…and Ian ended up on stage – as the entertainment.


Thanks for sharing your snaps, team!
