It's Nice To Meet You

Being a Travel Counsellor is my dream job. After 20 years with a high street agent, 10 of those in management, it was liberating in 2016 to get back to basics and set up my own business around arranging holidays. Travel is my passion, and helping customers shape their travel dreams is what makes me tick.

Building a business from scratch has been as rewarding as it has been challenging. There is no magic formula – achieving and maintaining Gold status as a Travel Counsellor has required 3 principle ingredients: That passion for travel, a hard-work ethic, and great communication skills.

Getting to know my customers, and encouraging existing customers to refer their friends and family to me, have enabled me to gain an in-depth understanding of what they want each time I put a holiday together. A relentless attention to detail and my concierge mentality means that I try to find a way to enhance every single trip in some special way. Thinking outside the box and creating unique and unforgettable life memories is what I strive for at every opportunity.

And then there are the tough times – crises come and go in travel with the unexpected threatening the smooth running of travel arrangements. My profound experience in handling such episodes as 9/11, the volcanic ash clouds over Iceland, numerous extreme weather systems, airline strikes, air traffic control disruption, drone activity… has all honed my skills and got me as ready as possible for the catastrophic disruption of this year’s COVID 19 pandemic.

With such a far-reaching crisis as this, anybody with travel booked with me for this year can rest assured that their money is safe, and I will be working tirelessly to ensure their rearrangements are handled efficiently and effectively, and that they can concentrate on staying safe during the outbreak.

With the inspirational back-up of a head-office team packed with experts in their field, I am my fellow Travel Counsellors will navigate this storm, and emerge on the other side with a robust business with which to continue delivering award-winning travel services to our valued customers.

Having my wife and children at home during the lockdown has been a blessing, and knowing I have their unswerving support helps me know that after this temporary disruption, I will be back on a course of growth and happiness as a Travel Counsellor.

I am now getting lots of early enquiries from people looking forward to getting something in the diary for 2021.

Whatever your enquiry, I’d be delighted to hear from you to see if I can help you get as much out of travel as I have done.
