My name is Nicola and I am an independent travel agent in South Yorkshire, however I have clients based all over the United Kingdom. I have worked in the travel industry for over 20 years so have a wealth of experience and product knowledge.
I joined Travel Counsellors as I wanted to concentrate on giving my customers the highest possible levels of personal service, 100% impartial travel advice at the best possible price. In maintaining this ethos my client base and turnover has grown and I have maintained my Gold Travel Counsellor status for the 8th year running.
As your own professional Travel Counsellor I can use our award winning technology and my personal expertise to tailor make exactly the right holiday to suit your taste and budget. Rather than selling you a standard tour operator package, I can quickly search through hundreds of different flights, accommodation and transfer alternatives to find something that suits you exactly. Quite often this means I can build you a bespoke holiday at a price to suit your budget.
Of course my passion is travel and I love to go on holiday. I have travelled extensively around the world particularly the Caribbean of which I try and visit at least twice a year. Other parts of the world of which I have first hand knowledge are the United States including Hawaii, Canary Islands, the Mediterranean and Islands, Egypt, Africa, the Far East and the Indian Ocean.
I can help you arrange any part of your travel arrangements and however unusual I will rise to the challenge - so whether you just need a flight to Corfu, a hotel in Bangkok or a last minute holiday to Barbados I can help.
I look forward to arranging your next holiday and hearing from you soon.
Nicola, thank you for organising our trip to Euro Disney. Travelling with a small child is never easy but you'd made sure that we had everything we needed to make the trip an enjoyable one. Even the tip about taking tea bags with us!

Nicola has been helping with our holiday planning for years and hopefully for many more to come. She is friendly knowledgable and always happy to help with any of the requests or queries that going away often bring up. I am often asked to endorse products or services but am always delighted to do so for Nicola. I actually carry a couple of her business cards in my wallet to pass on to friends and family who may be looking to go on holiday, I wouldn't do that if I didn't hold Nicola in high regard.

Nicola was recommended to me by a friend and I have been so impressed with her I have used nobody else for the last 3 years when booking holidays/flights and I have been travelling for the last 25 years!

Murray Leslie, Falkirk, 23 October 2011
I always have lots of places and hotels in mind and never really sure where exactlty to go. However no matter how many destinations and hotels I ask about Nicola always gives me as much information as possible, knowledge of the resort, good flight times etc. and we always have a laugh and a joke about how long my lists are. As always we manage to choose the right option and have a great holiday. Already everything booked for 2012. Thanks Nicola!
Karen Tazzyman, Sheffield, 18 October 2011
Over the last 8 years we have been booking holidays with Nicola and have always found her sevice to be excellent. Nothing is ever too much trouble, she has taken the time to find out our likes and dislikes and uses her knowledge of resorts to find holidays which suit us. We have always used every opportunity to recommend her services to friends and family.
Tony Goode, Huddersfield, 27 March 2011
I was given Nicola's number many years ago and now wouldn't use anyone else to organise my holidays for me. Nicola is incredibly friendly, helpful ( nothing is too much trouble), reliable, knowledgable and importantly - honest. She has booked package holidays, flights only and separate bits and pieces for us. Thank you Nicola.
Helen Gardner, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, 19 March 2011
We have booked numerous holidays with Nicola and she always has a smile in her voice whenever we speak to her. She invariably gets us the best price and always provides speedy and reliable support whenever it's needed. We always recommend her to friends who talk to us about holidays.
Tony and Valerie McCarthy-Cox, Leicester, 17 March 2011
Many thanks Nicola for the help and advice you have given us in recent times. Your knowledge and professionalism is second to none and as a result we have had some wonderful holidays and memories to treasure. Thank you for all the hard work you put into it and for the excellent customer service that I have received when things have gone wrong, beyond anybody's control. Speak soon.
Lynne Clough, Huddersfield, 16 March 2011
Having booked several holidays with Nicola over the years, we have found her to be knowledgable, patient, helpful and conscientious - nothing is too much trouble. I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family as we have complete trust in her. So give her a try!
Sylvia Telford, Preston Lancashire, 15 March 2011
We always feel Nicola is trying to book the right holiday for us. We feel that she has known us for years. If we leave a message for her to ring us, she always gets back to us either that same day or the following day. The holidays Nicola has booked for us have always been just right. No complaints. If she does some investigations for us and we decide not to book, nothing has been too much trouble.
Trevor and Jane Baker, Little Melton, Norwich, 15 March 2011
It doesn't matter when I call - Nicola always raises a smile within my family circle. We know the personal recommendations for a holiday will ensure we get value for money and carefully selected accommodation with a location that meets the needs and aspirations of our style of holiday. One telephone call and a personal one stop shop - what better service could you get?
Michael (Mick) Barker, Derby, 14 March 2011
Nicola has the ability to really understand the exact preferences required for the holiday and builds the package that is the exact fit.The sneaky holiday I have just planned for my husbands birthday surprise has been handled with the utmost care and attention, nothing is ever too much trouble where Nicola is concerned.
Debbie Widdowson, Rotherham, 14 March 2011
Nicols is one of the nicest and most helpful people I know. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she always looks for the best deal for her clients. If there is any problem from outside sources, she will ensure everything is sorted out to everyone's satisfaction. I would recommend her to anyone.
Chris & Sue Samwell, LEEDS, 14 March 2011
Nicola's service was excellent at all times. All the arrangements for the Orient Express, the hotel in Venice and the cruise cannot be faulted. I have recommended her to friends who may use her services at a future point in time. We shall certainly use Nicola's services to book future holidays.
Brian Jenkins, Kettering, 14 September 2010
We received a very friendly, prompt and efficient service from Nicola. The holidays we have booked with her have been in good resorts and hotels, with other details such as transfers going smoothly. We have always found the holidays very good value for money, and she has even managed to ensure sunshine!
Ann Whiteley, Sheffield, 29 August 2010
Nicola has always provided us with excellent service in choosing and booking our family holidays and has always provided better value than we could get on the high street. Recently we booked our honeymoon cruise through Nicola who provided us with a great range of options in our price range and gave us a better deal than we could even get from the cruise companies direct.
Chris Satterley, Nottingham, 23 August 2010
Nicola always manages to find what the family are looking for. I have used Nicola now for about 8-10 years and she always gets it right. I have also been happy with the service, recommendations, and her timescales in getting back to me. I have recommended Nicola to a number of my friends and family who have also used and been very happy with her service.
Donna Willets, Blackburn, 20 August 2010
I Would just like to say that whenever you contact Nicola about any sort of holiday she will always do her best, be it a package, flight, hotel, or just a transfer, nothing is ever too much trouble. I have never met nicola,but have spoken to her on the phone, she is always so friendly and bubbly whatever. I can honestly say I have recommended nicola to lots of my friends.
Karen Whittaker, Huddersfield, 17 August 2010
Nicola has always given us great service and has been able to answer any questions. I have been dealing with nicola for the past ten years and I would not use anybody else. I have recommended her to many of my friends and relatives and they have all been as happy with her as I have been.
maureen bennett, great yarmouth, 16 August 2010
We have been using Nicola as our Travel Counsellor for over 10 years and she has always found us an enjoyable holiday at a fair price. She has booked my friends and I on holidays to New York, Egypt, Bali, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Rome, Prague and many other places. She has many years experience of the travel industry which has given us fabulous holidays, with many more to come.
Maureen Joel, London, 16 August 2010
Hi Nicola, thanks again for all your help and advice, with the recent trip to London and the theatres that you arranged for us, we both had a brilliant time. Will speak to you soon regarding our next trip. Thanks Ian.
Ian Barlow, Chorley, 11 February 2010
We take about three holidays a year and Nicola has been arranging them all for many years. The Holidays have been very varied and Nicola’s dedication to detail has been exemplary at all times. We have recommended Nicola to family and friends and testimony to Nicola is that they all now use her on a regular basis. We appreciate her efficiency, wide knowledge, friendliness & sense of humour.
Christine Moulsdale, Builth Wells, 03 February 2010
It is great to have someone who you can just give your requirements to and then sit back and relax knowing that they will tailor the best package for you. Nothing is a problem for Nicola and she is always quick to come back with answers to queries. The recent holiday she organised for us in the Seychelles was fantastic, something we will treasure for ever.
Mary Jeive, Welling, 03 February 2010
Nicola gave us excellent service in helping us to choose a suitable holiday to a location we had never visited before. We received a wide selection from her, together with some advice based on both her professional and personal knowledge and experiences. We would recommend her service to anyone looking for a little extra personal touch to holiday booking!
Brian and Ann Whiteley, Rotherham, 08 September 2009
For many years my wife and I have made our holidays demands through Nicola. She always meets or exceeds every expectation we hold in travel standards of accommodation, location and price. Such is her trusted expertise that family, friends and 'down the pub' recommendations now utilise the Travel Counsellors experience through her excellent service. We all thank you Nicola!
Michael Barker, Derby, 02 September 2009
I always find Nicola very helpful and knowledgable when I am looking to choose a holiday. The service received is always of a high standard in terms of efficiency and she has a polite manner.
Ian Barlow, Chorley, 02 September 2009
My husband and I have been dealing with Nicola for a few years now and I can honestly say we would not use anybody else. Nicola has always found us really good holidays and before we go she has been so helpful telling us about the hotels and what there is to do in the resorts. Nicola will spend hours looking for the right holiday for you. We give Nicola 10 out of 10.
Maureen Bennett, Great Yarmouth, 02 September 2009
