This summer I stumbled across an Instagram account called wyntersunholidays and decided to send a message asking for help to find a very last minute sunshine holiday. If honest I made an immediate judgement of the company without having heard a single thing about them.....how wrong was I. This resulted in me receiving a very prompt response from one of the senior sales reps. I have never had such a formal yet pleasant and personal conversation on the phone with someone who's main aim was to take my money and sell me a holiday. Due to the last minute decision to head for a beach, the wyntersunholiday sales team liaised with me daily at my convenience taking into account that I was at work whilst trying to search for holidays. They dealt with me with patience whilst I was being indecisive and trolled numerous companies to find me a deal that worked for me price wise. On finding a deal that matched me in terms of luxury and price I was even contacted during out of office hours to ensure I did not lose out of such a find. This deal was a one week all inclusive holiday to Kos staying in the Sovereign Beach Hotel.
