Ian Darkin founded One Traveller in 2007. It has since grown to sell more than 40 different holidays around the world including UK and European short breaks and long haul trips to the US and Asia.

The solo travel specialist has signed a 12 month PR contract with travel and tourism PR specialist Hills Balfour. PR director Amy Scott will head up the account team, alongside senior PR account manager Jasmine Rushton and PR account executive Becky Wickerson.

Ian Darkin said: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Hills Balfour. They have demonstrated unrivalled creative thinking, an impressive black book of industry and media contacts and, above all else, phenomenal service delivery.”

Scott added: “We are really excited to be working with One Traveller. As an operator they are brimming with knowledge and experience but I think it’s their personal touches and innovative approach which sets them apart from their competitors. We can’t wait to help them tell their story to a wider audience and help raise further awareness of their product offering.”
