With more than 20 years’ experience in making holidays and travel accessible and inclusive to all, it is with great excitement and anticipation that I join the Travel Counsellors global family of award-winning travel professionals. It’s going to be an amazing journey!
In my previous role as General Manager of one of the UK's leading accessible tour operators, Accessible Travel, I was able to establish a unique insight and understanding of how to create holidays and travel that meet the requirements of customers with even the most complex access and mobility requirements.
I have enjoyed seamlessly making holidays accessible and my comprehensive service includes, assistance through airports and on flights, adapted transfers, guaranteed accessible rooms, through to hiring of equipment, nursing care and accessible excursions.
Having curated holidays, just not for a specialist market, along with drawing on my travel experience through more than 50 countries, I instinctively match holidays and listen to my customers’ tailoring holidays to individual needs and requirements. I love finding out where you’ve been and where you want to go, because sometimes travel is about heightening your imagination and finding those things you never knew you were looking for.
But of course, the most important relationships over the years have been with my valued clients, many now friends. It is so rewarding that you are already allowing me the pleasure to plan and book your future holidays and travel. That means so much. But what is really exciting about being a Travel Counsellor is that I will now be able to offer an almost unlimited range of destinations and holiday opportunities to everyone, that simply cannot be matched by any other travel organisation. This will mean I can help realise your travel ambitions and dreams in a way that was simply not previously possible. Add to this round-the-clock support wherever you are in the world, 100% financial protection and of course a personal, caring service without compromise and it really is going to be a future without limits!
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a
call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get
things started for you:
Join me on a exciting trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.

Ali has been an absolute star every step of the way in making sure we have the best holiday possible! Nothing was ever too much to, despite the numerous changes and amends due to covid, date and requirement changes! She always provided all the information to us so we could make an informed decision and choose what’s best for us, as well as taking away all the hassle of planning so we could just relax and enjoy our dream trip! Ali arranged a trip of a lifetime to the Maldives for us and we couldn’t recommend her or the resort highly enough! Everything from travel, transfers, accommodation, extras and insurance was all taken care of! We will definitely be working with Ali again!

Ali Parker is fantastic and helpful and has placed several of my clients on great holidays this year, despite the uncertain travel restrictions. I would highly recommend Ali and trust her to communicate and support my clients, especially given the confusion around what documents and tests are needed. I have also had the opportunity to compare Ali's service at Travel Counsellors with other agents offering a similar service for clients with access challenges. In my view, Ali has been way better in terms of service, communication, holiday options, professionalism and building rapport with my clients. Definitely scores 10 out of 10.

This is the second time that Ali has arranged a holiday for me - the first one, last year, was quite a one-off, being just myself on selected railways in India; also, at the very start of the Coronavirus problem! Everything ran like clockwork; your reps were excellent, and last minute adjustments due to a flight cancellation, were handled with great care and speed! This is the reason that two of us have asked Ali to handle a two-week stay in The Gambia, which has been done with her usual speed and professionalism! Excellent!

My wife had a stroke some years back which left her in a wheelchair. Ali has managed most of our holidays since, helping us get to Crete, and more recently, a cruise to New York. The cruise was eventually aborted but Ali took care of all the details with a clear understanding of our specialist needs. I have no hesitation in recommending her services and will certainly be contacting her for our next trip.

Our holiday was just incredible; the best we’ve had yet! When we emailed months ago with a list of what we wanted you met every wish and created the best holiday - there is no way we could have done it without you!
The hotel was just perfect; they couldn’t do enough for us and provided an excellent service with delicious food and drinks a plenty. The kids were hooked on non-alcoholic daiquiris all week!
We created the most wonderful memories in Barbados and fell completely in love with the island; it had history, culture, safety and is inhabited by the most laid back and lovely friendly people.
Thank you so much for your work in putting together the perfect holiday and ensuring that it was so easy! TC ted was a huge hit with the kids and loved his holiday too!
