• About Richard

    Sport and travel are Richard's two great loves in life so what better way to start his career than travelling the world working for a specialist Sports Tour Operator. Keen to expand his travel knowledge, Richard moved into a completely different area of the industry and became a specialist in holidays to Cuba. This involved frequent trips out to the Island to gain essential product knowledge. In 2012, Richard decided he wanted to focus on something a little closer to home and became part of the Cities Direct team. Since joining the team, Richard has built up a loyal following of clients who book with him time and time again. He certainly has got a way of finding hotel rooms that no one else can get their hands on!
