Hi. Welcome to my webpage, my name is Claire and I live and work in Aylesford, Kent.

Sometimes booking a holiday can be a bit of a minefield as there is so much choice, but I can take the stress, strain and hassle out of searching the internet or sitting in a high street shop looking for that perfect break.

I can provide everything your traditional high street travel agent has to offer plus tailor made holidays to anywhere in the world. Using Travel Counsellors award winning technology I am also able to uniquely dynamically package holidays at competitive prices from over 400 approved suppliers.

My customers know that I will do everything to ensure that booking a holiday is a stress free experience, which is why my customer satisfaction rating is 100%. You can always get hold of me, either via e-mail, landline or mobile plus Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Once abroad I will look after you, check you into flights along the way and if you think of the adverse weather some countries have had, strikes and political uprisings, having someone to speak to and be able to get you home is invaluable.

I have visited many places over the years - Austria, New York, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, the Pyramids in Egypt, Miami and Cancun. I have enjoyed many holidays to Gran Canaria, Malaga, Paris, Ibiza, Italy and Orlando to name a few and I want to use my own personal travel experiences to provide you with some memorable trips.

On top of this, our unique Financial Trust gives you 100% complete financial protection from the moment you make your booking. We were the first travel company in April 2012 to be accredited with the new Government Flight Plus ATOL scheme, therefore ensuring you have the best financial protection in the industry.

As well as fantastic holiday deals, I have exclusive Cruise offers, cheap flights, short breaks, UK hotels and UK Park holidays plus attraction tickets, theatre tickets, car hire, travel insurance or holiday vouchers for birthdays, anniversaries or honeymoons. I can organise weddings abroad and our Honeymoon Gift Registry service where your wedding guests pay for your honeymoon, is extremely popular.

If you think you might like someone else to do the hard work for you coupled with complete financial peace of mind and with excellent value for money, then give me a call or send me an e-mail for a no obligation quotation - I would love to hear from you.

Happy Travelling!

Customer Story 1

Claire was able to put together the holiday we wanted, when high street travel agents were unable to. She dealt promptly and professionally with our questions and queries, to ensure we were completely happy with the final arrangements. An all-round good experience.

Customer Story 2

Claire made the whole booking process very easy, keeping me updated each step of the way. She even went out of her way to post me some local brochures following her own trip to the same location and provided me with lots of tips and advice. Highly recommended and I look forward to speaking to Claire about my next holiday soon.

Customer Story 3

Having been given a chance to attend a conference in Vienna, all that was stopping me was fear of flying and booking a flight and so on. Claire Summers helped me every step of the way, supporting me and explaining every step, supporting me abroad and helping me with details for the way home. I am very pleased to say that I managed the return trip and I am very proud of myself and grateful to Claire. The commission that Claire earnt was not a lot but the professional service I received was second to none. I am very grateful and will not hesitate to continuing to recommend Claire and Travel Counsellors.

Yes we would recommend Claire as she was very prompt in visiting our house and providing us with costings for our itinerary. She was on the ball with providing us with up to date information and did everything in her power to accommodate the changes we made to our itinerary until we got it right. She is very attentive and proactive in looking after the needs of her clients.

Customer Story 5

We have booked a holiday and a London show with Claire. She made the process so easy and came up with what we wanted speedily and once we made our decision it was booked so we just had to look forward to the event. With no hassle or worries as Claire was there for us at the end of a phone "just in case". We would definitely rebook and recommend others.

Customer Story 6

I emailed Claire just a few days before Christmas to try and source a short break holiday to Rome for a Christmas present to my wife. Same day I got hotel options, flight times and costs which gave me time to review and make a decision. After some changes to flight times holiday was all booked and confirmed and paperwork received next day. Karen was delighted with the surprise on Christmas morning which was made possible by Claire's prompt attention.

Customer Story 12

I want to congratulate you on your outstanding customer service. I was impressed with how you took my initial idea and gave me options I'd not thought about. The process of booking the holiday was easy. The little touches of booking me in at the airport and writing out luggage labels were thoughtful. I am a lone traveller and with your attention to detail I felt secure and safe in an unknown country.

Bev Hillstrom, Maidstone
Customer Story 1

My partner and I have used Claire for the last few years and have always had fabulous holidays. She is efficient, knowledgable and very easy to talk to. On numerous occasions we have recommended her to friends, family and clients. We will continue to use Claire for any other trips we intend on booking.

Customer Story 2

Just love not having to trawl through websites trying to find where to stay and the best deal. I feel we have got a beautiful hotel for a good price with great extras such as private transfers and Gatwick airport lounge. Claire has been lovely and very helpful. Will definitely be booking other holidays with her!

Marie Russel, Kent
Customer Story 3

We asked Claire to help us choose and organise a summer holiday as not being experienced travellers we felt that by using her expert experience, we would be able to get the holiday that would suit our needs. We are due to travel on the 7th July and have every confidence that we will have a wonderful holiday, knowing that Claire is only a phone call away if we experience any problems (which hopefully will not be necessary). We have received the tickets and information about our holiday and are very impressed that everything has been included from receipt, ticket information, taxi organised at the airports and even the luggage labels have been completed for our outward and homeward journeys. We would have no hesitation in recommending Claire to any of our friends and family.

Claire organised a trip for myself and my husband around Asia for about 3 weeks. Right from the start she was always incredibly helpful and always responded quickly to any problems or queries we had. She found us brilliant hotels in great locations and tailored our trip exactly how we wanted no matter how many things I had forgotten to mention to her previously! Even when we were away she was available to help and sort anything out, we had a fantastic trip and this was down to Clarie's excellent organisation and planning! Thanks Claire!!

Claire is a breath of fresh air, she is attentive, knowledgeable and efficient. The aftercare provided by her and the company is excellent and she will go the extra mile when called upon in a crisis situation, something which we experienced during the Ash cloud delays. Use Claire to book your next trip you will not be disappointed!!

I have never found booking a holiday so easy since going through Claire. Not only is she extremely professional but her personal touch is second to none. I wouldn't book my holidays through anyone else.

Deborah Nye, Exeter
Customer Story 8

I would definitely recommend & use Claire for any future travel plans. Nothing was too much trouble for her, from writing out the luggage tags, to booking a hotel the night before the holiday. Claire was also available when I recently had a dispute in Miami, she was in constant contact with me to resolve the issue & even helped with getting a refund. An excellent service & would use Claire again

Richard Boniface, West Malling

I wanted to do something very special for our Silver Wedding anniversary and Claire's knowledge and experience helped me decide on a Mediterranean cruise with Cunard. The booking process couldn't have been easier – Claire took care of all the details and answered all of our questions (and some that we hadn't thought of) leaving us to look forward to a perfect holiday!

I found Travel Counsellors after a google search and immediately called to speak to Claire, from the start she was friendly understanding and was quick to inform me of the packages and offers available. I had full confidence in her and after many changes and amendments she managed to find the perfect package. Polite, professional and an expert in her field. I would fully recommend her services.

Customer Story 11

We have used Claire a couple of times now to book our holiday, but this year we had some quite specific requirements for our holiday as we wanted to try a holiday that was different to our typical break. We gave Claire a list of requirements and a budget and she very quickly came back with a number of different options for us. Nothing is ever too much trouble,cheaper than the high st & highly recomended

Simon Wright, Caterham
Customer Story 12

We have booked a holiday recently with Claire - Excellent service, very knowledgeable and found us a great holiday for our first trip with our toddler! Claire took the pain away from doing all the searching for our holiday, we just explained all the things that were on our wish list and she came back with some options that matched what we were looking for. It was easy!!

Northern Lights lapland

Claire's blog, 06/02/2014

In February 2014 I went in search of the Northern Lights in Lapland. Well, to be honest I went for the Husky Sledging, Snowmobiles, Reindeer Camp, spending a night in an Igloo and if the Lights came out it would be a bonus!

We flew from Gatwick to Sweden, then took the coach to Finland to a beautiful 3 star property in Karesuando, Finland. The staff were friendly and the location was remote and idyllic. There was so much snow, that there was no other colour than white. The trees, buildings, roads all covered in snow!
