We always contact Claire Horne. She is professional, books our ideal holiday and above all she always gets a good price. We have booked several holidays with her and nothing is too much trouble, no matter what time of day it is. Claire goes that extra mile and for that reason we have become to trust her, we as a family would not choose to book with anyone else.

Claire is brilliant. I thought my previous travel agent would be hard to beat but Claire has done it. She is very, very efficient and seems to know the business inside out. And there are great extra touches, such as checking me in when I'm in some far flung place and looking forward to coming home! I would not go anywhere else and I always recommend her to others. Just superb! Thank you.

The courteous extremely helpful service is so refreshing in the modern world of fast pace and not much time for each other. Nothing is too much trouble for the Staff close attention paid particularly for myself who is a Senior Citizen and needs clarification on many issues. The prompt confirmation of all my travel arrangements within one day when dealing with my daughter who lives in the USA was exceptional. I am extremely impressed and thank you for the exemplary service at all times.

It's the personal touch that cannot be beaten. Not only does Claire find the best flight options quickly, but she also takes the time to accommodate everything I need and is really engaging when she does it. Really couldn't ask for more.

Claire was recommended by a friend for providing reliable, friendly and professional service and she didn’t disappoint. Claire was helpful and informative, guiding me through the whole booking providing additional information along the way. I feel much happier about booking through her and the reassurances this service provides.

Wow! What an amazing experience. I have just returned from four nights in Swedish Lapland. Having worked previously in ski resorts I didn’t think I would be blown away as much as I was by the scenery. I can honestly say it was the most beautiful place I have ever been lucky enough to travel too. I travelled with four colleagues out to Luleå via Stockholm with SAS. On arrival in Luleå we were meet by own private driver Thomas who drove us to Pine Bay Lodge where we would be spending out first night. Pine Bay Lodge is a small...

As a Travel Counsellor it is always a great privilege to be invited to visit one of the thousands of hotels that we offer to our customers. On this occasion a dozen of us flew out on an early morning flight to Thessaloniki, Greece to stay for a weekend at Sani Resort, Halkidiki so we could experience the resort first hand. Once we arrived at Sani resort, we were welcomed by the friendly hotel staff and shown to our rooms in Sani Beach Hotel. The resort is on a 1000 acre private estate and is made up of 4 hotels, Sani...

I was lucky to be one of six UK Travel Counsellors who flew to Australia and attended the Travel Counsellors annual conference at Hamilton Island. The trip also included time in both Sydney and Singapore. After a long journey from London Heathrow with flight changing in Singapore and Brisbane we arrived at Hamilton Island and transferred by gold buggy to The Reef View Hotel. After unpacking we headed off down to the harbour to board our catamaran cruise around some of the islands. The next day we visited four lovely properties spread out on the island. Palm Bungalows, Beach Club, Qualia and...

Having never been to Orlando before, I was very excited to be able to visit. After the flight from Gatwick, and short transfer, we checked into the Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel for our 5 night stay. The hotel is located near The Universal Parks and city walk so is in an ideal location. The first evening of our trip was spent having a delicious authentic Italian meal at the hotel’s “Mama Della” restaurant whilst being serenaded by the staff! The next morning we couldn’t wait to get going as our first attraction was Universal Islands of Adventure. Once we arrived, we...

I was lucky enough to accompany a large group that I had arranged to visit Riva Del Garda on Lake Garda. Having previously worked in Austria as a Lakes and mountain rep I expected Lake Garda to be beautiful but it exceeded my expectations. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The hotel we stayed in was a 15 minute walk from the beautiful town of Riva, which has cobbled streets, a lovely main square and a great selection of restaurants and shops. Whilst we were there we went to Venice for the day. This...

I was lucky enough to be invited on a trip to Cyprus with some fellow Travel Counsellors, to learn more about the Island. We spent the first few nights staying at the beautiful 5* Amathus Beach in Limasool. From here we did an excursion to the Troods Mountains were we visited the Omodos village (a traditional Cyprus village) and stopped for some wine tasting. It was great to experience and see the village and we were made to feel very welcome by all the locals who showed us how they make bread and allowed us to sample it along with...

In December we decided to do the most amazing day trip we had ever done. We had booked to visit the real Father Christmas in Lapland. Our flight was scheduled to leave Gatwick at 7am, so we had a very early start but for once we didn't mind getting up early. Ashley (my husband), Daniel (our 6 year old son) and Maggie (our 4 year old daughter) headed to the airport accompanied by my sister, who just couldn't resist joining us! Before breakfast we had taken off and the plane was full of excitement as we spent the next 3...

I was lucky enough to visit Jamaica with a group of my fellow Travel Counsellors in October. We met at the airport before our flight with BA to Kingston. On arrival at Kingston we travelled for a further couple of hours to Sandal Dunn’s River resort and Spa where we stayed for 2 nights. During our stay in Ocho Rios we climbed Dunn’s River falls, this was great fun although a bit scary as I am not great with heights! We were then lucky enough to visit dolphin cove and swim with the dolphins. This is something I had never done...

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity for a weekend in Dubai. My trip started off with a flight on the new Airbus A-380 with Emirates. The flight was great and I was really impressed by the A-380, the largest passenger aircraft. The A-380 is a great plane and even in economy there was loads of room as well as great entertainment, I was spoilt for choice about which film to watch! This proved to be a great start to a brilliant weekend. My first morning in Dubai was spent on a city tour, I would definitely recommend this as...

It was like a military operation trying to get four adults and six children organised for our family villa holiday with friends to Menorca but worth ever second of the planning & packing as we all had a great time. I could see the look of fear on the other passengers faces as we boarded our flight to Menorca, as four of the children were under the age of five and everyone was dreading us sitting next to them! After a unsurprisingly relaxing flight, helped by a portable DVD player and lots of snacks, we arrived in Menorca where we boarded our...

Off I set for New York with my sister and parents for their first trip outside of Europe. I couldn't wait for them to experience New York, I was lucky enough to have been 8 years previously. After a good flight, we jumped in a taxi from the airport to take us to our hotel. The trip into Manhattan was fantastic - firstly we experienced the amazing New York skyline and before we knew it we were in the centre of Manhattan surrounded by sky scrapers, yellow cabs and the most buzzing city I have ever been to. We started our...

This year for my husband’s 40th birthday we deiced to go to Vegas, this is somewhere we have both always wanted to visit. We were travelling in a group of 15 and had booked our trip 8 months before we travelled, so by the time it finally arrived I couldn't’t sleep with excitement the night before! My parents had very kindly offered to look after our children, so off they went to Nanny’s & Granddads to be spoilt rotten, this was the first time they had been left for more than a night so I felt ill at the thought...
