It's Nice To Meet You

Hello – we are Claire and Paul, Travel Counsellors from Selsey, near Chichester. We’ve lived here for 4 years, running a 10-bedroom B&B. Being hospitality trained, we put fantastic customer service at the heart of what we do. Between us we have lived and worked in several countries including Australia, Dubai, Japan, France and Morocco – in fact we first met whilst opening a 5 star hotel in Serbia nearly 30 years ago!

Since then we have worked in many different aspects of the travel industry, and for the past 6 years have been independent travel agents specialising in cruises – we love talking about them and helping our clients to pick the perfect cruise.

Being Travel Counsellors means being part of a fantastic network of like-minded people who are passionate about travel.

If you’ve only just started thinking about a holiday or maybe you know exactly where you want to go, we want to take the time to get to know you and exactly what you want from your trip. As independent travel agents we are not bound specifically to any tour operators but can focus solely on finding the right elements to ensure you have the perfect holiday. We have access to hundreds of suppliers and are available to talk travel at a time to suit you – whether that means a chat over the weekend or of an evening, and if you are local, then pop in and see us for a cup of tea.

Once we’ve booked your trip, you’ll have access to our award-winning app – myTC – a personal extension of your Travel Counsellor with access to all your travel documents and itineraries wherever you are in the world, even when you are offline. There’s also peace of mind knowing that everything you book with us is 100% protected with Travel Counsellor’s unique financial protection trust.

So if you know where you want to travel to, or if you only know you want to go, then contact us and let us use our specialist destination knowledge combined with competitive rates and award-winning technology to create the perfect trip for you.

Unpack the world with us, we look forward to hearing from you.
