Beach Holiday… City break….Cruise…Hotel…Safari…Flight…Bespoke Tour….UK Break…Ski.... I can help with them all!!
Hi, I’m Amanda Johnston and my passion for travel has meant I have loved every second of the 28 years I have been a travel agent. I am lucky enough to have travelled to lots of places including Florida, New York, Singapore, Mauritius, Thailand not to mention lots of Mediterranean destinations….I’ve never been to South America…but that’s high on my ‘to do’ list!!
I joined Travel Counsellors as I wanted the freedom to offer my clients a more personal professional service as only an independent agent can. I have access to award winning technology and hundreds of suppliers which means my clients will always benefit from the widest choice … You may ask why book with me and not the internet? That’s easy – I’m an expert – I check holidays every day so I know the best deals available. Why bother spending your time trawling through the internet when I can do it for you? You also have the peace of mind knowing that every penny spent with me is 100% financially protected.
I treat every enquiry as if it were my own holiday – it’s important to me that my customers have a great time – I want them to come back to me… and to tell all their friends about me! I work from my office at home which means I can be available outside conventional working hours, so my customers can talk to me at a time which is convenient for them, and they can relax knowing it’s only me they need speak to – be it before, during of after their holiday.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Always helpful and patient with us. Always finds us a good deal and takes the pain for searching ourselves away.

Amanda has been fantastic and her response times are amazing. Never felt I had to wait for answers, and she was very knowledgable. I will definitely be using Amanda for future requirements.

Amanda was just brilliant. She had some great ideas for our family holiday, listened to my preferences and tailored a perfect itinerary to suit us. She was also extremely patient when I wanted to keep exploring other options - despite me going back to her first proposal- because of course she had got it right the first time! Clever Amanda! Would not hesitate to recommend her. Very knowledgable, professional and friendly. Worth her weight in gold!

Amanda has helped me with my travel plans for many years now and she is very knowledgeable and happy to assist in any way. This invaluable service is very much appreciated especially as most of our travel plans are bespoke and often to "off the beaten track" places. Her friendliness, professionalism and the knowing she is there for back up is also much appreciated and so I have recommended her to other friends also.

Amanda has been very helpful. She went out of her way to get exactly what I wanted for a holiday for myself and my two children. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to all my friends and family.

Amanda is patient and has to find us endless bits of information before I confirm the booking. This year she has helped with a holiday from Laos to Cambodia to Koi Samui in Thailand. Amanda has paid meticulous attention to detail from architecturally led hotels to specific tours. This makes the whole planning process exciting!

I’d definitely give 10/10 for Amanda. I have used Amanda's expertise for the last 6-7 years for my holidays and she has never let me down. She has excellent knowledge of holiday destinations and always tailors them to my requirements and her service is prompt, efficient and professional. I have passed on Amanda's details to many of my friends and family and will continue to do so. Go Amanda!!

It’s been many years since I last visited Italy, so when the opportunity came for a quick visit I obviously jumped at the chance. First stop Milan. Only an hour and a half from London and a night at the stylish and elegant Rosa Grand Hotel. You cannot get a better location in the city, strolling distance from the imposing Duomo Cathedral – some of the rooms have a view of the beautiful romantic spires – and a stone’s throw from the fashion district with its plentiful chic boutiques, stylish bars and restaurants. A short taxi ride away took me to the...

It had been on my bucket list to go to Jamaica for a long time, so I jumped at the opportunity for a quick five-night break to look at some of the island’s most luxurious hotels and to see what the island had to offer. My only regret is I haven’t visited before! The first thing I noticed, even before leaving the airport, is the genuine warmth and happiness from the Jamaican people. I honestly don’t think I met a grumpy Jamaican the whole time I was there! My first stay was at the beautiful 110-acre Round Hill Estate, which comprises...

We fancied a quick break without the kids…we wanted a short flight, a city with things to do, small enough to walk around without having to take cabs or public transport - and decided on Madrid where neither myself or hubby had been before. My only regret is I waited so long to visit this beautiful city. We stayed at the Melia Princesa Madrid, and upgraded to their ‘The Level’ room grade. This meant we were able to enjoy a quick check in at their dedicated desk (whilst enjoying a lovely cold Cava), and by the time we got to our...
