Hello from sunny Bournemouth!
My name is Anna and I am so excited to become a member of the Travel Counsellors family, dedicated to a uniquely personal holiday service based on my very own travel experiences from 20 years in the Industry.
I spend part of my time in Bournemouth with my 3 Westies, Sam, Reilli and Charlie. For the rest of the time we go to our family home by the sea at Coverack in Cornwall where I grew up.
The sea is in my blood having spent the past 17 years working on-board Queen Elizabeth 2, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, the Yachts of Seabourn, Princess Cruises and P&O Cruises as the on-board Cruise Sales Manager, Shore Excursion and Tour Office Manager. I've lived my dream - now I want to help you live yours!
The ships were my home, so I would love to share the passion that I have for travel with you, plus my first-hand knowledge and experience of the ships and their itineraries. I am also committed to offering you dedicated shore excursion and ports of call service to enable you to maximise your stay in your destination.
Working on-board the ships means that I have been lucky enough to have seen most of the World; my particular area of speciality is South America and the Caribbean where I was based for eight years and of course the Mediterranean.
I have am able to secure amazing last minute hotel and flight packages thanks to Travel Counsellor's unique reservation resources and access to a wide range of tour operators with the ability to get fantastic competitive prices. I am able to book everything from late deals to luxury tailor made holidays.
Travel Counsellors put clients first before profit, so when you book with me you can always be safe in the knowledge that you are my number one priority even when faced with the challenges of natural disasters and strikes! I am available 24/7 so you can be sure every aspect of your holiday will be personally taken care of.
Booking with Travel Counsellors means that your holiday is totally covered either by ATOL or by our unique Financial Trust. This means, in the event of any supplier failure you get your money back. No other travel company can offer this to their clients.
I really look forward to hearing from you at a time and location convenient to you to discuss that the World really is your Oyster!
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:-

I have been recommended to Anna Martin because of her efficiency when a colleague and I used her services to book our first holiday together. This is the first time I have communicated with her and I am so impressed with her efficiency and sparkling personality. I am determined to meet this lady when she returns to Cornwall on holiday. A true credit to her business.

This is the first time we have used the services of Anna Martin. A friend of ours asked her to organise a holiday in Italy for a group of us later this year. We have found her to be very friendly, helpful and efficient. Her advice and the way she has contacted us to ensure that we have received information/documents have been much appreciated.

Anna is currently dealing with two holidays on our behalf and we have found her most helpful. She has gone out of her way to get us the best deals. We have already recommended her to friends and will pass her business cards onto others.

A spur of the moment request having searched the internet for a holiday came good with just one phone call giving my requirements. Now all booked-up and can't wait to get away. Great job.

Anna was very helpful and patient when trying to book and available dates were difficult to find. A very friendly and experienced provider. I wish you to pass on my thanks for the good service.

Anna is amazing! It was such fun booking our holiday with her in the comfort of my own home, especially as it was pouring with rain at the time! Anna 'really knows her stuff' and you feel totally safe in trusting her to do the best for you. Anna obviously loves her job and got as excited about booking us off somewhere fabulous as I did. The icing on the cake was when Anna booked us a transfer car from the airport to our hotel, as we arrive late she wanted us to be hassle free and safe. My two teenage daughters and I are really looking forward to our holiday and Anna has made things so easy for me as I have to work up until we leave. Thank you Anna and I wish you were coming with us!
