It's Nice To Meet You

Thank you for your interest in Travel Counsellors, where I pride myself on offering my customers a level of personal service and attention to detail that simply can’t be found on the high street!

My name is Darryl and I have been in the travel industry for 23 years. I joined Travel Counsellors as I wanted to be able to offer my clients impartial travel advice. Many people are still not aware that most high street agents are owned by just one operator and can only sell that company’s holidays. Here at Travel Counsellors we are completely independent and our state of the art technology allows me to search through a huge range of travel possibilities so that I can match my customer’s requirements exactly.

I specialise in travel to faraway places such as the Far East, Caribbean and the Indian Ocean. But whatever your travel needs - whether it is a city break, honeymoon, tailor-made itinerary or just a flight I will be only too pleased to help.

I look forward to speaking to you in the near future.

Sent by Keith Anderson

Darryl has been so helpful, nothing is too much trouble for him and we have had more questions than normal as this is our first trip since the pandemic came along and Darryl has helped us so much with those uncertainties and clarifying requirements for us. It's obvious that Darryl knows his business really well, he gives us full confidence that we are safely booking a trip and it's reassuring that he's in the background and we know we will get a quick response if we reach out to him with a question.

It's great to be able to get back in touch with Darryl and let him loose on finding us great deals that just don't seem to be available elsewhere. He's patient, diligent and listens carefully to our needs and seems always to find a solution.

Over the years, Darryl has organised several holidays for us and he is always incredibly helpful and thorough in ensuring everything is arranged exactly as we requested. We'd never book a big holiday without him!

Darryl always offers a fabulous service and is happy to help out with form filling and great advice. Even when you are on your holiday if you have a problem then Darryl is a phone call away to assist. I would recommend Travel Counsellors and in particular Darryl to anyone wanting to book a holiday.

Darryl has been our travel advisor for many years. He is pleasant, helpful and always goes the extra mile for what we need. He has booked numerous holidays for us and everyone has been exceptional. I would highly recommend him to book anyone’s holiday and will continue to use him for all my holidays. All my family use him already. I would like to say many many thanks to him for making my holidays a lot less stressful and will continue phoning him for everywhere we want to go. Thank you Darryl, you’re one in a million.

We recommend Darryl to all our friend and know that lots of them have booked with him and will continue to book with him. His service is first class and he is more like a friend than a Travel Counsellor. He always goes out of his way to get us the best deal there is and we know he would not send us anywhere he would not go himself. Fabulous service. I don’t know how we managed before we found Darryl.

I find that booking my holidays with Darryl takes the stress out of planning a trip. He is very obliging and always comes back with a great choice. He can find a good deal and now knows what sort of holiday to suggest. I have recommended him to friends and even whilst on holiday told others who booked with a differed agents.

Just a brief comment to commend a member of your team, Darryl Bailey, whose considerable efforts made our extended family holiday to Egypt truly memorable. There were issuses about disabled access, special transfer arrangements, flight seats and even last minute hotel changes. All were handled truly professionally - we were we kept informed all the way. Never before have we received such fantastic service from a travel agent. Sincere thanks! We will definitely be using Darryl again!

We booked our wedding to Mexico for 10 people...days before we were due to fly it was cancelled due to swine flu. As you can imagine we were devastated. Thank goodness for Darryl! He got on the case straight away and rebooked another wedding and holiday for us all in Jamaica! It was an absolute miracle how he did it, we cannot thank and praise him enough, he makes dreams come true. Thank you Darryl

I would just like to thank your counsellor Darryl Bailey. We booked a holiday last September to Egypt with XL airways that unfortunately went into administration whilst we were in Egypt. We could not praise Darryl enough for his help and support during what could have been a very stressful time but thanks to his willingness to help and keep us informed what could have been a nightmare turned into another happy holiday memory. We have booked with Darryl before and were delighted with the service he provided and would have no hesitation in booking again with him. In fact prior to our Egypt holiday we recommended him to my sister in law who was travelling to Cyprus last June for her son’s wedding. If we hadn't had the confidence that Darryl would provide an excellent service we would not have risked recommending him to her. Well done Darryl keep up the good work.

I would like to say that I have always found Darryl to be a most helpful member of Travel Counsellors who goes out of his way to find the perfect holiday to suit my needs. His prices are competitive and I find Darryl courteous and polite. I have recommended him to my family and friends. Darryl is always available by email or phone to sort out any problems I might have.
