Hello and welcome to my page; my name’s Claire and I live in Aylesford in Kent.
I know from experience that booking a holiday can be an almost overwhelming task. There’s so much choice, so many ‘bargains’ and so many operators. That’s why I decided to become a Travel Counsellor, to help people book their perfect holiday, without the stress!
You don’t need to spend hours and hours online or sit in a high street shop all afternoon to get the best deal on your holiday: I can arrange your perfect break to any destination in the world and all you need to do is tell me your requirements.
Just give me a list of things you like (or don’t like) whilst on holiday, as well as an idea on budget, and I can arrange a bespoke holiday for you and your family. You don’t even need a firm idea of where you want to go, just have a chat with me and I’ll help you find your ideal destination.
Using Travel Counsellors’ award winning technology I am able to create unique package holidays at competitive prices from over 400 approved suppliers.
I pride myself on going the extra mile for my clients and my customers know that they can count on me to do everything in my power to ensure their holiday runs smoothly from that first conversation to the final journey home.
Once you’re abroad I will look after you; checking you into flights along the way and dealing with any problems or queries you may have, from having an accident abroad, to concerns over local transport strikes. You can contact me at any time by e-mail, landline or mobile, as well as on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
I can use my own personal experiences to help you get a great holiday deal, places I have travelled to include:
• San Francisco
• Los Angeles
• Las Vegas
• New York
• Gran Canaria
And many more.
I can also source exclusive cruise offers, cheap flights, short breaks, organise weddings abroad, UK hotels and Park holidays, as well as attraction tickets, theatre tickets, car hire, travel insurance or holiday vouchers for birthdays, anniversaries or honeymoons.
The Travel Counsellors’ unique Financial Trust gives you 100% complete financial protection on every single booking. Coupled with ATOL protection, this ensures you have the best financial protection in the industry.
If you or someone you know wants value for money, peace of mind and a hassle free holiday then please contact me for a no obligation quotation - I would love to hear from you.
