It's Nice To Meet You

Hello my name is Clare Flint and I am based in Devon.

I have extensive experience working in high street agencies and smaller independent agents and I ran my own agency for 19 years for leisure trips and business travellers.

I'm ready to help busy people like you take time and stress out of researching and making their own travel arrangements. Let me take your enquiry by phone, email or by appointment via skype or in your home.

I offer a variety of services:- tailor made holidays, group bookings, or complex tailor-made trips. Discounted worldwide flights and independent travel arrangements to all destinations, including the UK. Plus I can offer a credit account for large medium or small business travellers.

As a travel agent with over 28 years of experience, I book all the leading tour operators and many smaller specialist tour operators, schedule airlines, charter airlines, both independent hotels and hotel chains, together with insurance, airport parking and much more.

My favourite destinations are Mexico (visited 5 times), Egypt (visited 5 times), Tanzania, Borneo and New Zealand - visiting North and South Island by motor home! My best holiday was climbing Kilimanjaro combined with a second week relaxing in Kenya on Safari and taking boat trips.

If you are organising a wedding I have experience in organising and attending a wedding in Mauritius. Its a stunning location and the clearest blue sea I have snorkelled in.

Let me save you precious time and money surfing the web and provide you with some top travel tips from my personal travel experiences. Added to this that everything is 100% financially protected against supplier failure by either ATOL or the Travel Counsellors Trust, giving you peace of mind.

New Zealand North & South with a Motorhome

02 June 2009

Travelling out with my husband and parents in law - we had a wonderful experience over the 2500 kms distance we travelled in our comfortable motorhome. My mother in law took a wheelchair and the airline assistance was excellent. Despite not being able to secure a wheelchair friendly motorhome, we were able to stay at sites with wheelchair friendly access to all facilities. North Island was warmer, very volcanic, with hot springs, rainforests and more commercialised. The South island is mountainous with glaciers, but it is not as quiet as the guides say. We did see quite a few motorhome truckers and it became customary to wave at each other on the open road. The sights, the weather, the fresh air, the locals, the food, the wildlife, the infrastructure, the adventure sports and tourist evenings, the old one horse towns, the modern cities, and the mountains, are all fantastic. One word of advice is not take fruit into this country (the airlines give you apples & snacks in flight). My relatives cleared customs but I was met by two ladies in smart uniforms with a lively beagle. As a dog lover this was a pleasant welcome, but this dog managed to smell a forgotten apple in my rucksack. It was donated by Qantas in flight and the dog apparently got a whiff of it across the airport. With some sweet talk I was let me off with a warning. We stayed overnight in Auckland and had a welcome pre-arranged taxi transfer. Next day we collected our lovely huge motorhome. The best advice is to hire one bigger than your exact party size, as you need the extra storage. The 'Top Ten' chain of camp / motorhome sites are well located with clean facilities. We took 3 weeks covering both Islands and a break in the Far East would also have been beneficial. Flights into Auckland and out of Christchurch worked for us. Some memorable stops include Rotorua, a tourist town that is well known for its geothermal activity. The Maori tourist evening is well worth it - my husband was elected our group representative and enjoyed the traditional welcome ceremony. Napier is an Art deco touristy town with lovely beach - my in laws actually nearly emigrated here in the 1960's. Another tip is to make sure you have your camera on board if you take the inter-islander ferry from (windy) Wellington to Picton, which takes approx 3 hours. Arrowtown is an authentic gold-mining town and resembled a cowboy film set (one location for the Lord of the Rings). Queenstown is the centre for outdoor activities, and the Harry Potter groupies were following the trails. The Waitaki Valley and Mount Cook are each about three hours' drive from Queenstown. The Southland scenery is stunning and much of the Lord of the Rings trilogy was filmed here. When visiting Milford Sound you venture through a long tunnel that cuts through the mountains and into a colder climate. Boat trips here are a must and last for half a day and longer. It can get very slippery around this area so remember hiking boots. Mount Cook is a fantastic drive, which lots of lovely scenery and clear air. Nearby is the famous Hermitage Hotel and we ate very well at the Old Mountaineers restaurant. Dunedin was a lovely town with beautiful art deco Railway station and we also ventured to Portabello Otago Peninsular, where we visited the Albatross Chick Centre, museum and great tea room. Also I recommend you take a trip to Christchurch where you can take the Tranz Alpine railway. New Zealand is a suitable destination to visit all year round, with warmer summer months from November to April. It’s a long flight but well worth it and I loved the whole experience. So what are you waiting for? Please contact me today for further information.

Clare has dealt with my holiday bookings for several years and she is always very helpful and jolly. One year I wanted to spend six weeks travelling across Canada; east coast to west coast. Clare arranged the whole trip: flights, trains, coach and hotels. She sorted every last detail which enabled me to have a holiday of a lifetime. We need more Clare's in this world!

Clare has arranged Egypt holidays for me and my family on two occasions. She's taken control of the whole booking process including flights, hotels and parking and managed everything smoothly. She has actually gone the extra mile - the first holiday coincided with the Egyptian Spring and though we were in an area unaffected by the troubles, she kept in contact to make sure we were okay and was on hand if we needed advice."
