Hello and thank you for visiting my page.
Although I have worked in the travel industry for all my working life I chose to join Travel Counsellors in 2003 because they care about their customers which is all too often lacking in many companies.
I take pride in offering the highest level of personalised customer service to my many clients and I love my job. It is this which I think is what has helped me build a successful business for almost 12 years. My clients, many of whom have become my own personal friends, trust me and are happy to help expand my business by passing my details to their friends, colleagues, and family.
Working from home, I have the time, enthusiasm and award winning technology which enables me to deal with your enquiry in the most effective way. You don't have to do battle with high street crowds during your busy lunch hour. Instead you can phone or email me at your convenience, even outside normal office hours. You will always be able to speak to ME, rather than a premium-rate call centre, for just the cost of a local call.
I am independent so rather than automatically selling you a standard tour operator package, I can search through hundreds of different flight, accommodation and transfer alternatives to find something that suits you perfectly. Quite often this means I can build you a bespoke holiday at a comparable price and more importantly, one which more appropriately fits your needs.
Whilst I have travelled extensively, I am passionate about the Caribbean and Middle East and just love cruising. There is something so exciting about waking up in a different destination almost every day without any effort on your part, not to mention the fantastic facilities and entertainment available on board.
If you are thinking of your next holiday whatever or wherever that may be I promise to provide you with the highest level of personal service. You will also be safe in the knowledge that your holiday is fully financially protected as our unique Financial Trust gives you total peace of mind on everything I book.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sharon has been tremendously helpful, informative and patient, in booking a bespoke tailor made, 3 week holiday to USA for my husbands 60th birthday. It has involved 13 different hotels, long haul flight and an internal flight within the States, not an...
I have been very fortunate in having Sharon Seward as my Travel Counsellor for many years, and have always received EXCELLENT SERVICE. For us Sharon just makes the holidays, from the first phone call to the return back home. Our sincere thanks. Mr G
Sharon was, as always, first class...she was at the front of the queue when they gave out patience! We were aware of cheaper options elsewhere but were, and would always be, happy to pay a premium for excellent service. I'm a happy customer!
With independent access to thousands of travel suppliers around the world, I've got an eye for added value. Take a look through my latest selections below. But even if nothing particularly catches your eye - don't worry! Let's chat and I'll take the hassle away from tailoring a perfectly personalised holiday just for you.

I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

In June 2013, after a gap of 35 years, I decided it was time to pay a return visit to the beautiful island of Madeira and booked to stay at the 5* Pestana Casino Park hotel close to the centre of Funchal. Funchal stretches along the coast for four miles and is full of subtropical tranquil gardens which thrive in the temperate climate. Although the town is hilly, the Lido area where most of the hotels are situated is flatter and spreads up to one and a half miles from the centre. A pleasant promenade with tourist shops and...

I recently visited Italy on the ‘Treasures of Tuscany’ tour offered by Travelsphere. We stayed in the picturesque hill town of Chianciano Terme, about 2 hours north of Rome, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and used it as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. We stayed in the hotel Villa Ricci, about a mile from the historic centre of the town. It is a comfortable 3 star hotel with lovely air-conditioned rooms, a thermal pool and a wellness centre. Our first port of call was to the charming hamlet of Bagno Vignoni, with a population of...

Few people have heard of the Greek island of Thassos, and even fewer have been there, but once you take the plunge it will be forever etched in your memory. It has the highest rates of return visitors of any of the Greek Islands and is commonly known as “the Green Island of Greece”. The island is the northernmost of all the Greek Islands and is situated in the Aegean Sea to the north east of the “fingers” which make up Halkidiki. It is reached by a flight to Kavala (although occasionally Thessaloniki is used as an alternative airport) with a...

AMAZING ANTIGUA I have been a huge fan of the Caribbean for as long as I can remember and have spent many an enjoyable holiday either cruising round the area or at a single destination. For many years Barbados held the top spot in my affections but having visited Antigua numerous times, I would say, in my opinion, it now shares that No 1 position. They say Antigua has 365 beaches – one for every day of the year. I don’t know how true that statement is but it certainly has an awful lot of them and they are all beautiful. Being...
