Marian Benton joins the Travelbiz team



A number of weeks ago we announced our new initiative to bring you a new view from both sides of the counter introducing Marike Nolan (Douglas Travel), Caroline O’Toole (Weddings at sea & Fahy Travel in Galway), who will be delivering our ‘Cruise Views’ and now I am delighted to announce Marian Benton, who was the first employee of Abbey Travel joins our team as part of our build to THE BIG TRAVELBIZ REVEAL which is coming very soon.


Marian Benton’s travel career began in 1978 when given the opportunity to become the first employee of Abbey Travel.  She is proud to have been a part of its growth into one of the largest and most respected agencies in the country and of having organised many groups particularly to big events such as Italia ’90 and USA ’94 involving thousands of people.


 In 1998 Marian set up her own travel company, MAP Travel, with a partner, specialising in incentive, cultural, heritage and religious tours.    The business was sold in 2019.  The word ‘retirement’ is not in Marian’s vocabulary and, as much as she loves her golf, the lure of travel still beckons.  Marian’s extensive travels have taken her all over the world.


Stay tuned as we have lots more to come.
