Hi and thanks for visiting my web page.
Whether you are looking to take a helicopter trip over (or under!) the Golden Gate Bridge, soak up some Winter Sun in the Canaries, get up close and personal with the elephants in Sri Lanka or book tickets for the latest West End Show, thanks to my 16 years in the travel industry I am very privileged to have first-hand experience of a huge range of destinations and holiday types. I have also met some incredible people during my time in travel and have friends and colleagues around the globe so if you are looking to go somewhere I haven’t been to personally, I have a world of local knowledge to call upon.
I am often asked where my favourite place is in the world. It would be way too hard to narrow that down to just one so I have lots! My favourite City and shopping venue has to be New York, for total relaxation I’d return to the Maldives any day and my favourite place for a family holiday is the beautiful and unspoilt Puerto Pollensa in Majorca. Not forgetting Lapland of course for the pure magic! I am also a big fan of UK Holidays and particularly enjoy spending time on the South and East Coasts as well as the Lake District.
I have a real passion for travel and being a Travel Counsellor allows me to spend time making sure that I find you the right holiday, or business trip, to suit all of your needs. I am completely independent so can book from a huge range of different tour operators and airlines as well as tailor making itineraries that are completely personal to you. I also pride myself on offering independent and honest advice. I offer a truly personalised service that I am confident you won’t get anywhere else. You will only ever deal with me - right through from your initial enquiry up until you return home and beyond. I am also available at a time and place to suit you.
Think of me as your ‘Personal Travel Advisor’. I can take care of every single element of your trip including airport parking, visas and in-resort excursions to name but a few. Plus every penny that you spend with me is 100% protected so what are you waiting for?! Get in touch with the requirements for your next trip, however big or small, and I will do the rest!
Hope to hear from you soon.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so please either fill in and send the form below or simply give me a call and I can get things started for you:-

Claire organised a surprise birthday trip for my husband's birthday to Bruges. She took care of all payments, tickets and organising our transport from doorstep to doorstep. We had a wonderful time away and could not fault anything from the recommendation of our transport, to hotel and location - we truly recommend Claire to organise any holiday or trip that you desire.

I was put on to Claire Dent by my sister. A pleasurable and easy way to book my family holiday. Claire was efficient, clear in communication and helped us find not only the best price for our criteria and budget but helped us save in other aspects also. (Transfers and pre-flight hotel) Thank you Claire.

Since Claire set up as a Travel Counsellor she has arranged three holidays for us - to Paris, Dubrovnik and Sicily. She goes to great lengths successfully to match her suggestions with the type of holiday we seek and always gets back to us within 24 hours with details of flights, accommodation, car hire when applicable, local visits and costs. Claire is knowledgeable, professional, friendly and pleasant and we are very pleased to recommend her. We shall certainly use her services for future holidays.

The promise of a "relaxed intimate atmosphere, calm moods and a fresh approach to service" is what initially attracted us to this 4* Boutique Hotel on the shores of Lake Windermere - the Waterhead and we were certainly in for a treat. Unusually warm temperatures for October was the icing on the cake for a great weekend. The Waterhead is located steps away from the lake and around a ten minute walk into the centre of Ambleside. It is a perfect base for exploring the area and in 3 days we visited Windermere, Keswick, Coniston, Newby Bridge and Bowness. Having previously stayed...

I have sent so many of my customers to Menorca over the years and have always heard such good reports about how family friendly it is that we decided it was time to try it out for ourselves. We opted for the Paradise Club & Spa in Cala’n Bosch due to its extensive family offering. There were activities on offer all day and well into the evening for children of all ages if they wanted or alternatively plenty of space to chill out if not. With two small children the 1 Bedroom Apartment was perfect - very modern and clean and just...

This Spring Bank Holiday we decided to try one of the Haven Holiday Resorts in Dorset. We opted for Littlesea due to its proximity to the beautiful beach at Weymouth and all that is on offer in the surrounding area. We found the Haven Park to be very modern and clean and the facilities on offer for the children were endless. My two particularly enjoyed the evening entertainment and the indoor and outdoor swimming pool complex. For a small fee my Daughter was also able to try her hand at Archery and Fencing, run in small groups by professional coaches, which...

This was our second trip to Canada to visit dear friends who live in Whitby, Ontario. We love it there so much that I am confident it won’t be our last visit! This year we travelled from Whitby through to Niagara Falls via Toronto and Hamilton. Whilst in Toronto we took a trip to the top of the CN Tower and had fun looking at the miniature world below us from the glass floor! We also spent a full day at Toronto Zoo as well as taking the ferry across to Toronto Island - a green haven in the middle of the city....
