I have been in the travel industry since 1988 in varying roles from working on the very unique Floating Hotel to spending 10 years in Europe working and travelling with Contiki.  I have now been at Escape Travel for over 11 years.  My greatest satisfaction is sending our clients away on an amazing adventure whether it be near or far and hearing about the stories on their return.

My Greatest Travel Tip is take 10 mins out of each day and have a look around you and appreciate where you are.

Elena Tirado Tirado – Consultant

Originally from Madrid, Spain, I lived in Ireland for three years, where I met my Australian partner. We decided to move to Australia  13 years ago, but lived in Spain for a little while before making the big move. Being Mediterranean, I am very family orientated and always travel back home once a year to spend good quality time with my loved ones, and lets be honest, to eat my grandmother’s food!!

I joined the Escape Travel Castletown team 10 years ago when I completed my Diploma of Tourism. Since my early days as a novice consultant I have gained enough experience to become the Assistant Team Leader in our office.

I love helping other people make their dream trips become reality. I love talking to my clients about their trips; their expectations, the reasons why they choose a particular destination etc. This allows my to fully understand their needs while away and to get excited with them. Organising a trip should be part of the fun, and I try to extend this feeling to my clients.

Each trip we take is important, whether it is a honeymoon, a trip of a lifetime or a little weekend away with friends we create memories that will forever be with us, and I love being part of this!

Places visited:
