Our History
Travel is in our blood and the passion for holidays and exploring the world is as strong as it was back in 1936…The Broad family has been synonymous with travel since the late 1930’s when Alan’s father Ray Broad sold coach tickets in the back of his Father’s Ironmongers shop on Birmingham Road, Erdington. The company grew over the years to include Broads Travel Service, Tudor Travel and Concord Holidays.

Following Ray’s retirement in the 1970’s, Alan’s eldest brother Robert opened Robert Broad Travel in 1982 in Mere Green,  Sutton Coldfield. In 1985 Alan opened a Lichfield office on Boley Park where we are still located today. Robert sold off the Sutton Coldfield office when he retired in the 1990’s and Alan continued the family business with his son Oliver. Today, along with Nathan Collins our group of specialist travel brands falls under the name RB Collection. We are very very proud of our heritage and are now looking to the future with an award-winning team of travel experts who are passionate about creating unique, lifelong memories through specialist and luxury holidays around the world.

RB Collection also includes the online brands IceHotels.co.uk, Jordan Holidays & Sports Events Travel.
