When Cy Flood applied for work as a holiday rep, his reasons were simple. He wanted to party like crazy, booze like there was no tomorrow and pull like it was going out of fashion! In his ten years working for holiday companies as a rep, Cy has seen it all. From Lanzarote to Ibiza, from Palma to the Greek Islands, there have been flying cockroaches, flying televisions, drunken pub crawls, angry clients, wild sex and a TV crew on the scene. There are tales so tall that they defy belief. As well as the sun, sea, sand and shameless excess, a shockingly true picture of life as a travel rep is exposed; a world of violent crime, corruption and drug dealing. Cy's confessions allow us to peep into a world we all see from the outside but wish we knew more about.Confessions of a Holiday Rep is a truly behind the scenes picture of the resort scene and a real eye-opener for any holiday maker. A funny, honest and crazy must have summer read that will make you laugh, shudder and maybe even cry!

Worth more than a casual glance

This is a far better book than the front cover suggests

The memories came ‘Flood’ing back …

read this because I used to be a rep in the 1990s and I was shocked to find out that the author claims to have repped in Lanzarote the same season I was there. Is this his real name, I wonder, because repping is a very small world on a small island and I don’t remember him…. For those reviewers who were expecting more sex and confessions I want to say that I think this is a very true to life representation – you’re mainly working crazy long hours with little extra time for anything else! Enjoyable read and a great trip down memory lane. The one thing I found a little strange was the author’s obsession with giving everyone’s exact height when describing them. If you want filth, then read the much less accurate ‘Is Harry On The Boat’.

Light and frothy – a good read

Contrary to other reviews, I enjoyed this and whizzed through it in no time. I purchased this book with the aim of finding out more about the work of a rep and in that respect it certainly answered those questions. Written mainly in a very light-hearted way, but I thought that the author covered the 1999 aircraft crash really well – it was good to get an insiders view. A good read – recommended.

Brilliant

Really enjoyed this! A fairly brisk read that was very enjoyable. Very humerus to discover that I’d actually been to more than a couple of the places that the author had been a rep at! Very much recommended if you’re looking for a quick read to pass the time on a journey or simply looking for an easy-going, light-hearted book.
