ABOUT US

Breakaway Vacations is owned by Lloyds Travel & Cruises, an established Agency in Vancouver (actually...Vancouver’s oldest travel agency).

Our Legacy

We have been in the Short-Term Vacation Rental business since 2002. All of our homes have been inspected and we are licensed in British Columbia which means your payments are protected by the Travel Assurance Fund.

To avoid disappointment, always book your holiday accommodation through a licensed professional.

We offer both check-in and key pick up from our central location in Vancouver.

We have a huge selection of houses, condo’s, cottages and entire strata units.

For years Lloyds has been sending people out into the world and since 2002 we have had the opportunity to bring the world to our spectacular province.

Breakaway Vacations was established in BC’s Gulf Island’s and today still has a strong presence, but every year we look to bring you vacation homes in more and more locations across this beautiful landscape.  Since 2002 we have expanded to host properties in Vancouver, Whistler, Victoria, the Okanagan as well as the surrounding areas.

In February of 2010 Breakaway Vacations was honoured to be an approved accommodations provider to the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.  This was truly an opportunity for many to experience Breakaway Vacations as BC’s best vacation rental agency.

Brad was born and raised in Williams Lake BC where, outside of his studies and restaurant work, Brad enjoyed playing soccer for the city team which gave him the opportunity to travel all around North America. He later moved to Vancouver to pursue a post secondary education at Capilano University where he received a diploma in Business Administration, and a certificate in Retail and Marketing. For 4 years he grew in the customer service sector of RBC where he learned the ins and outs of the banking world. He then turned to the business world, where he worked to develop two distribution companies and travelled throughout North America and Asia. Each individual experience has been used as the building blocks of Brad’s character and instilled within him a spirit of self motivation and a commitment to excellence. Early in 2009 Brad received an invitation to assist Breakaway Vacations by becoming the Vancouver housing Director. Brad has enjoyed the time spent with the amazing team at Lloyds Travel and Breakaway Vacations as we continue to showcase BC.
