Bliss is the new holiday brand from Traveldev, the folks behind some of the UK and Ireland’s leading online ski companies. We offer relaxing family holidays in over 60 holiday villages and campsites in Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Austria and Hungary.
Traveldev is a family-owned and operated business founded in 2000 with the launch of our online ski brand Directski.com. Over the last 13 years we have grown to be the UK and Ireland’s largest online ski tour operator through both organic growth and through the acquisition of Ski McNeill (Northern Ireland’s biggest ski travel agency) and Ski Beat (one of the UK’s leading independent Chalet Companies).
Over the years, we have won numerous awards and accolades and in 2010 and 2011 were ranked in the top 3 ski companies in the Guardian Travel Awards.
Our team now includes almost 40 full-time staff in our offices in Dublin, Chichester and Landry (in the heart of the French Alps). We employ a further 140 staff during the winter season including resort reps, chalet hosts and nannies.
The launch of Bliss
In 2012, we decided to combine our online travel experience with our love of relaxing outdoor holidays to form Bliss. In partnership with leading European campsite and holiday village operators Happy Camp and Aqua Camp, we have brought together over 60 outstanding destinations across Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Austria and Hungary.
We offer a mix of well known campsites (such as the world-renowned Bella Italia on Italy’s Lake Garda) as well as lesser known “hidden gems”. All our destinations are hand-picked based on their reputation for offering quality, kid (and parent) friendly holiday experiences.
Our management team have enjoyed many campsite holidays – both as children and now as parents with our own children. We know how important it is to get the right mix of activities for the kids and space for the parents to relax too. We hope this shows through in our selection of campsites and holiday villages and our honest, no nonsense advice and descriptions – they really were written by mums and dads for mums and dads!
What makes us different
We don’t have expensive high street shops or glossy brochures and we encourage our customers to book and manage their bookings online – all of which means we can offer exceptional holidays at the best possible prices.
We thrive on feedback and would love to hear from you with your questions and ideas for how we can improve our online experience, product range or customer service so please do get in touch. Thank you.
