It's Nice To Meet You

‘’If I had to pick one thing that I could not live without, it would have to be travel.

The best experiences of my life have been on the road with my husband, exploring new places and experiencing new cultures – I am excited to share my insider knowledge and extensive travel experience with you to create your perfect trip!’’

Hi, my name is Ben and I am a Travel Counsellor based in Manchester, where I live with my husband.

I have been working in the travel industry for over 14 years, progressing from apprentice to store manager, and I have worked for many of the top high street travel companies.

For me travel is more than a career – it is my passion, and I certainly have the travel bug myself! I have been lucky enough to experience countless trips all over the world, as well as spending many years travelling full time.

In fact, I have ticked off 6 out of the 7 continents – with just Antarctica left to go! I have backpacked through South East Asia, cruised in the Caribbean, taken city breaks across Europe, gotten engaged in New York, been on safari in South Africa, travelled the length and breadth of Central America, and lived and worked in Australia – to name just a few!!

Whether you are searching for that ideal family holiday, you want to experience a cruise for the first time, you prefer to stay close to home on a UK stay-cation, or you are wanting a completely tailor made, bespoke itinerary you have been dreaming about your whole life – I am on hand to guide you through the whole process.

For me the most important thing is getting it right for you, ensuring that you trust in me as your travel expert! I will make sure to take the time to get to know you, truly understand your requirements, and make you feel valued.

I am excited to use my industry knowledge and my own personal travel experiences to make your dream a reality, so feel free to pick up the phone, drop me an email, send me a message on social media, or let’s meet for a coffee face to face to chat about your plans. I work from home, and so I can be completely flexible to work around what is best for you!

I can’t wait to hear from you!

Even though we were desperate to see the sun and get away, we were a little apprehensive due to the current situation with Covid-19. Ben made the whole process very easy and we felt in safe hands! Ben found us a great holiday package and gave us step by step instructions to follow for entering Gran Canaria as well as coming home. We knew if we needed any more advice when we were on holiday we could contact Ben but we never needed to. When we got home there was even a postcard welcoming us back. The whole experience was very personalised. Fantastic customer service! Will definitely be asking Ben to help us with our next holiday.
