After being out of the travel industry for a while, it is a pleasure to be back in the industry I started in and fell in love with, especially as an Independent Travel Counsellor.
I studied travel & tourism at the Bournemouth & Poole college, where a achieved a Diploma. After leaving college I worked for an independent travel agent in my home town of Swansea, gaining 10 years’ experience. Over my time working as a travel agent I was fortunate to see some fantastic places like the Canneries, Balearics, Greece, France, Finland, Germany to name a few but my favourites being the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Seychelles.
Although I have been out of the travel industry, the passion has never left me. My wife and I love going on city breaks, our favourites are New York and Reykjavik and for our summer holidays we love going to our family home on the Costa Blanca in Spain. We either fly out or we take the ferry and drive stopping off in places on the way down through France and Spain taking different routes each time.
Being a Travel Counsellor gives me the flexibility to book your perfect holiday and give you the personal experience you won’t find with an online provider with full financial backing. Whatever your requirements weather it’ll be a London hotel or a Round the World trip I can organise it all, even visa’s and transfers.
Other than travel I love my rugby, I have organised group bookings to the 6 nations games. I also booked my own tailor made trip to New Zealand for the 2011 rugby world cup and for the British & Irish Lions tour in 2017, I took my youngest son with me in 2017, he loved it.
So stick a pin in a map, give me a call and see where I can take you.
“I want to go to places I’ve never been before”
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-

5/5 to Daniel. I booked our first holiday for three years. Never booked a holiday before (someone always booked it for us all). So was completely lost what to do etc. Dan did everything. He found a fantastic hotel that would have suited my family everything was exactly what we wanted. He met me and gave me a lovely folder with everything in it and explained what to do. To know he was on the end of a phone at any time was brilliant and really very reassuring. Then came the Corona-virus. Dan kept in touch with us the whole time. We were due to fly on March 31. I was so worried about everything and Dan was very reassuring. As soon as he had word the flight and holiday was cancelled he notified me straight away. Not by text or email he phoned and spoke every time. I have had all the money for our holiday and flights refunded and had complete peace of mind that Dan was over seeing it all. Massive thank you Dan you have been an absolute star. I can’t recommend you more. I’ll need a year to get back on my feet with the blow my business has now taken. My next holiday will without doubt be booked with you Dan. Thanks again x

Our first booking with Daniel. Using the app and the guidance of Daniel has been amazing. he has tailor made our dream holiday, nothing is too much trouble for him. His service goes above and beyond anything we have used before. Its hard work looking for the perfect holiday and with Daniel at hand every step of the booking has made what has always been a stressful process so much easier. Gone are the days of sitting in a travel agents trawling through the deals. Daniel our Travel Counsellor will definitely be our go to person for all our future holidays. Amazing service highly recommend using for any type of holiday.

Daniel has been super efficient in organising and updating me on my upcoming break to Cape Verde. I would definitely recommend Travel Counsellors & Daniel's services.
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
