Hi my name is Daryl. I joined travel counsellors April 2007, but have been in the travel industry for 18 years so I have got plenty years of experience. My business is based at home so I can offer a flexible service that works around you and gives me the freedom to search for various holidays at the best price. This also means I am always available if you have any queries or problems. Just pick up the phone or e-mail, and the best part is it cuts out the hassle and bussle of town centre crowds, plus those annoying call centres. Another good thing is that this can all be done at a time that suits you and I can tailor make your holiday so it is exactly how you want it.
Personally I have travelled to various places so I have got experience of travelling the world. I have been to America, the Caribbean, the Far East, Australia, Europe and am still travelling.
Wedding in the pipe line? Then take a look at our Bridal Registry Service. This prevents you receiving unwanted wedding gifts, as this service enables people to contribute towards your honeymoon instead.
Thank you for your valuable time and looking at my website. Please don't hesitate to call as you could make your dream holiday a reality tomorrow.
We have been using Travel Counsellors for four years now for all our holidays. We find Daryl provides an excellent service is very knowledgeable of all destinations and goes that extra mile to ensure we have our perfect holiday. We shall continue to use Daryl for many years to come and recommend him and Travel Counsellors.

From start to finish Daryl provided a first class service. Nothing was too much trouble and he responded very quickly to emails. I found him very easy to talk to and extremely helpful in answering any questions I had. I would definitely use Daryl again when booking my next holiday.
Jo Upton, Leigh on Sea, 06 July 2014
Daryl has always been very helpful and charming and prompt with requests. He was recommended by a friend and is a great find.
K .Rosemary Bull, Rochford, 04 July 2014
when I was thinking about flying to Australia last October friends recommended Daryl to me and I was very pleased with the friendly service I received from him. I have since recommended him to several friends who in turn have been very pleased with the friendly competent service they have received.

Daryl is marvellous! He has helped us over the past 8 years to book holidays around the world. He knows the industry well and knows what questions to ask to ensure that you get the best out of your holiday. Daryl provides a very high standard of customer service and always looks after his customers well. I always recommend him and have no hesitation in writing this testimonial as I am certain that you won't get a better service anywhere else.
Debbie Montague, St Lawrence Bay, Essex, 18 October 2011
We were given Daryls name by a friend when planning a trip to the U.S.A. This was to take place in April last (2010) but because of the Volcano eruption in Iceland it was cancelled on the day we were meant to travel. Daryl went beyond the call of duty to re-arrange our holiday for us and really did a grand job. We always give his name to friends and family as a recommendation. We will always keep in touch with Daryl for our travel requirement as we now regard him as friend.
Chris & Terry Ballard, Hornchurch, 18 October 2011
We have used Daryl for a holiday to Florida. Daryl gives excellent customer service, he organised our ESTA's, pre-booked our seats and hand delivered the tickets. He also called to wish us a great holiday.
Brian & Julie Pateman, Westcliff on Sea, 09 May 2011
We first used Daryl for our honeymoon in June 2009. We did not have many ideas of where we wanted to go so Daryl met us in person to go through many brochures with us. We had a wonderful time and with no problems and we always knew Daryl would fix anything if it was needed. Since then we have booked through Daryl and he is more than happy to make suggestions when you can't decide where to go!
Richard and Rosalyn Kinsley, Wethersfield, 05 May 2011
We were introduced to Daryl through a friend and so "tested" his service to see how things went. Without doubt the response was superb; Daryl is always courteous to a fault and even better he got us a deal that we could not match elsewhere. Needless to say he is now our first port of call when planning a trip - we really value the good old fashioned service that Daryl provides.
David Fletcher, Chelmsford, 03 May 2011
I was recommended to Daryl through a work colleague who was very happy with the holidays that he had booked for her. Daryl has been extremely helpful in booking our holidays, especially a long weekend in Somerset with family. This has not been easy but Daryl has got us a great deal and has worked extremely hard booking this. I will always use Daryl for future holidays.
Sharon May, Rayleigh, 20 April 2011
I would just like to say how much I have valued Daryl from Travel Counsellors help and commitment in providing a very personal service to me and my family when I have booked a holiday. I have recommended Daryl to all my friends and they have all said how much he has helped them when they have travelled. Thanks and keep up the good work.
tony terry, Colchester, 19 April 2011
I can't praise Daryl enough. He is always on hand for any queries I have and takes all the hard work out of my trips for me. When I go away I feel confident that everything will go to plan.
Jill Scarff, Canvey Island, 18 April 2011
Thanks to Daryl's very good skills at booking us our accommodation in Calpe, we are so looking forward to our holiday. It wasn't an easy task for him as we were very picky about what we wanted in our accommodation, however he has managed to book exactly what we required. Thanks very much Myra
Myra Hammond, Sth Woodham Ferrers, 17 April 2011
Since being recommended to Daryl, I have not booked a holiday with anyone else. The attention to detail and the quick response time after the initial phone enquiry are excellent. I have recommended Daryl to many friends and will continue to do so. I look forward to my holidays and have complete faith that Daryl will find a great one for us. Roll on summer!
Mark Harrison, Gravesend, 16 April 2011
I have nothing but praise for Daryl; he is very polite, extremely helpful and really seems to care that he has the right holiday for you. If I have ever had any query no matter how small, he responds quickly. The holidays are good value and well checked out for us. We have used him for many many brilliant holidays and will carry on doing so. We have also recommended him to family and friends.
Jaqueline Westlake, Burnham on Crouch., 14 April 2011
I needed a cheap holiday to Turkey 18 months ago to attend my cousins wedding. I phoned every number that was in the local phone book and I have to say that Daryl was the most helpful out of all of them. He really did go that extra mile. I would not hesitate to recommend him and have in fact recommended him to my family.
Tracy Hansen , Rochford, 14 April 2011
Daryl is helpful and knowledgable, He has assisted us in choosing flights, and accommodation from mini breaks to more lengthy trips in various parts of the world, often finding deals or upgrades for minimal price increases. We trust him to find the right deal for our budget and he provides such a personal service that these days I give him dates and destination and leave the rest to him! Thanks Daryl
Carol Somerville, Rochford, 22 August 2008
I would just like to say how helpful Daryl was and nothing was too much trouble, our trip to New York was brilliant and Daryl was on hand to advise which hotel was best. All in all a very good service taking the hassle out of booking a holiday!! Will definitely be asking Daryl's advice on future holidays and have already recommended him to my friends.
Samantha Truss, Hockley, 07 August 2008
Daryl recently arranged our motor caravan holiday in New Zealand, via some days in Hong Kong. His attention to detail, superb planning made this holiday the holiday of a lifetime. Without Daryl's efforts and skills, the holiday could have been mediocre; in the event, his many suggestions, recommendations on hotels, detailed booking - both ways- of the aircraft seats and wonerful extras and other gems made this a truly fantastic holiday, our 50th Wedding Anniversary no less! We have recommended...

"The big D"top dollar. Daryl has looked after our requirements for the past 5 years. South Africa is his speciality (we recommend) He is a personable Travel Counsellor who we will very highly recommend. We have entrusted all our families holidays to the big D's care. You are booking with the right man.
Reg Greener, Burnham-on-Crouch,Essex, 05 August 2008
Daryl made booking a holiday so much easier, a very professional yet friendly person to talk to, and trying to find a holiday to suit 3 "girls" (combined age of 164) requirements wasn't easy. I would book with him again and have recommended him to friends and family who have also been pleased with his service.
Myra Hammond, Chelmsford, 29 July 2008
Daryl has assisted me in arranging several trips to Europe, Canada and the US. His experience and friendly, helpful service mean that he is my first port of call when making travel plans.
John Jolly, Burnham-on-Crouch, 27 July 2008
Daryl provides a superior level of customer service, he has a vast knowledge of resorts throughout the world and I always trust his advice. Daryl will always go the extra mile and nothing is to much trouble. I have recommended him to many people and everybody is 110% satisfied with his service and he cannot be beaten on price. I recommend Daryl to all of my friends and family.
Sharon Wilson, Southend, 21 July 2008
We used Daryl for our trip to Egypt, and it was probably the best holiday we have ever had, and without a doubt it was the easiest as Daryl did all the work and got us the best price possible. Thanks Daryl - will always use you for future holidays.
Aaron Vale, Tilbury, Essex, 20 July 2008
This gentleman is without a shadow of doubt one of the few people that goes the extra mile and cares about his clients. Not only does this gentleman give his all to get you the best (and I mean the best), he follows it up after the booking has been made for any further assistance. I witnessed this recently on a trip to Australia for my wife and daughter. The service Daryl gave to my family was of a first class nature. I will be joining my wife and daughter soon in Australia and needless to say...
