Our company was the brain-child of our very own Miss Ellie, Ellen Doherty, she noticed there was a gap in the market for a flight only specialist, she decided to act on her instinct so she found a shop to rent and opened Miss Ellies Travel in Ancoats, Manchester in January 1987. The business very quickly moved into all aspects of travel, the phrase ‘dynamic packaging’ may not have been coined by Ellie, but she was certainly booking accommodation and flights separately, for many years, before it gained it’s name! We have always offered travel from any UK airport although the Miss Ellies brand has always been synonymous with Manchester.
Ellie always insisted her staff strived to find the best holiday for the best price, for all our customers, she instilled these qualities in all her staff and made sure the customer always came first, she taught us well.
Such was her business success, Ellie quickly opened a second shop in Urmston, Manchester in July 1988 and this is where we are NOW based. It’s a very busy high street shop in the centre of the town, on Crofts Bank Road. We have a lovely shop, having worked at the other location, in Ancoats for a long while, we were a bit reluctant to leave, however all our regular customers have followed us here, and we have met a lot of new customers too. Here in Urmston, there is a lovely community feel and we have all been made to feel very welcome, we really do love it here. The team at Miss Ellies, today, have been with the company for many years, we are a small but, we like to think, perfectly-formed operation with a friendly team and with over 70 years travel experience between us, you can be assured you are in very safe hands!
