A reputation 50 years in the making.

Established in 1962, Dawson & Sanderson began as a travel agency in Ashington in the North East of England and since then has been quietly going about its business. Not many may realise that the 22-strong branch of high street shops, was one of the first to secure an ATOL licence and one of the first to offer free insurance and no deposits; marketing tactics then adopted across the trade at that time. The business, which employs over 250 staff, is still owned by original family founders Tom and Sylvia Dawson. Offices can be found in the North East of England, Cumbria and Yorkshire.
