Chris Clarkson

Role: Managing Director

After a couple of attempts at Further Education I realised it wasn't for me, I moved onto working for an Instrument Calibration company, which is as interesting as it sounds! In my 20's this let me concentrate on my main passion of playing rugby.

After teaching myself how to create websites in my spare time, I became half of the team that built, and eventually the success of the site meant we were able to give up our "normal" jobs, working on the website full time. In January 2008 we sold the company that owned HW to Expedia / Tripadvisor.

My job at is to make sure we maintain the ethos that was our founding idea; to deliver quality holidays at a low price while offering the highest levels of customer support.
