Hello and welcome!
My name is Dawn Broome and I've been arranging all kinds of travel for my wonderful clients since June 2001. Contact me and let me show you why I've been a winner of the Travel Counsellors' Customer Service Excellence Award during this time!
I really enjoy providing my customers with every imaginable type of holiday at great prices all backed up with my complete After Sales Service, which ensures that I am never more than a phone call, text or email away.
I'm originally from Cheshire, but recently moved over the border to Derbyshire, distance however isn't an issue as my customers come from all over the United Kingdom through many years of recommendations.
We are a truly independent agency and as a result you can be certain that the advice you receive will be the best deal for YOU! I am aware that there is a choice in who you use to book your holiday and I appreciate each and every enquiry and referral I receive.
A little about my career - I joined Travel Counsellors following a travel career which began over 20 years ago on the High Street and has included both Leisure Travel for a Nationwide Agency and Business Travel for a Prestigious Multinational Corporation.
I strongly believe that working in both the Leisure & Business sectors of the Travel Industry has been advantageous and this has given me a wide ranging product knowledge as a Personal Travel Counsellor.
Working as a Travel Counsellor has also given me the freedom to spend more time to plan and create itineraries with my customers. I set my own hours and I appreciate how busy life can be, so evening calls are never an issue.
I am pleased to offer trips to anywhere in the world, including cruises, weddings, honeymoons, tailor made itineraries, city breaks, villas, UK and European family package holidays to name a few. I can put any itinerary together - it doesn't need to be in a brochure and there's never any pressure from me to make instant decisions!
All coupled with the best advice regarding Passports, Visas and other legal requirements.
It's always been a great honour to assist with arranging all types of holidays with the added bonus of getting to know my clients and their families and I have many reviews which I'll be very happy to share with you!
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
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:-

How do I start? Dawn has now booked many holidays for us small and large, I would recommend her to everyone I know and have done on numerous occasions. I wanted to write today about going above and beyond ! After 6 days in Italy myself and my husband enjoyed a private transfer to the Amilfi Coast, after checking in seamless we decided to walk to the centre for lunch. Within 10 minuate s I had fell on my ankle and broken my foot in 3 places ! We called the insurance company ( I won't mention which one! ) and unhelpful is a word I would use! I then texted Dawn to see if she was able to offer any help, she was just amazing jumped to swapping seats on flights organising assistance with EasyJet (who were brilliant and can't thank enough April and her team on the return Naples flight) . Dawn arranged everything even got the hotel to print the tickets changed the transfer to give us more time at airport in case we weren't able to check in quickly. I know she spoke directly to EasyJet on the Saturday and again on the Monday to make the transiston as smooth as it was. We arrived home on Monday to more assistance from the ground crew at stanstead who were also brilliant, without Dawns intervention I can see how many issues we would of come across, it was a brilliant hoilday and even with the accident at the end I couldn't have asked for more from Dawn she went above and beyond even my expectations. Thank you Dawn and congratulations to travel counsellors for having such a amazing member of staff that is so Willing to help in her own time, regardless of the time or the place.

I cannot recommend Dawn’s services highly enough. She was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, always getting in touch when she said she would, and providing lots of helpful advice and suggestions along the way. Never putting any pressure on us to rush decisions which can so often be the case. A much more personal service then I have ever experienced through a travel agent! The hotels recommended by Dawn were outstanding, and we were provided with a good selection to choose from to suit exactly what we asked for. Everything was printed and posted to us from flight details to hotel accommodation details and airport transfers - the whole process could not have been easier. We had an issue whilst away, and due to weather problems, missed a flight connection and faced a 24 hour delay. I contacted Dawn, only to ask her to notify our next destination, but she went above and beyond what I could ever have expected by arranging overnight accommodation for us and rearranging our transfer details for the following day... all of which was done on what would have been a Sunday evening for Dawn!!! An excellent holiday. Excellent service. Highly recommended.

Hi Dawn, I just wanted to drop you an email to say what an amazing holiday we have just had. We have serious post holiday blues now! Everything you booked, planned and organised ran like clockwork. All flights, transfers and accommodation was spot on. Thank you so much for your hard work and attention to detail in planning everything. You have made the planning and administration side of a holiday a breeze. Prepare for an influx of new customers as we are telling anyone who will listen what a find you are! You are now our 'go to gal' for all our holiday needs! Thank you again, we look forward to planning our next adventure with you soon.

I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough - and will be doing so to all friends and family. I have never used a Travel Counsellor before having travelled extensively myself and always booked online independently. However, the opportunity of a trip of a lifetime to Australia with my mum has arisen and wanting to get it just right I have taken the recommendation of my aunt to use Dawn. She has been courteous, interested in how I wanted the holiday to unfold, prompt, accurate and full of expert advice and guidance. However, the most important thing for me is that she has understood that as a full time teacher I have been unable to hold lengthy phonecalls during the working day and has kindly contacted me in the evenings - this has been invaluable to me and I thank her for her extra professional efforts towards helping me. I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough.

We have booked our holidays through Dawn many times now and would highly recommend her to anyone. Dawn always goes above and beyond what is expected of her and it is always a pleasure speaking to her as she is always so enthusiastic and happy. Dawn puts in lots of time and effort to find you a holiday that is bespoken to you as a individual. She can sort out, parking and the V.I.P lounge should you wish to need those things and you will then receive all your tickets for these things in the post. Dawn will make your holiday plans as stress free as possible and I cannot speak highly enough of her. My friends who have also used her services feel exactly the same. If you want a amazing stress free build up to your holiday the book with Dawn Broome at Travel Counsellors...

We had a great holiday all the arrangements worked well, off the plane into the pre booked car and off to the hotel in less than half an hour. Dawn and I spent ages choosing the right hotel for our needs and it was just perfect, pool and games room for the children, food and decor just right for the adults. We were walking distance from Downtown Disney as requested. Well done Dawn.

Dawn prepared an excellent holiday for us for Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, and was so willing to make minor changes we wanted. However it wasn't just the quality of the holiday that impressed, but the overall attention to making sure everything was in order, including visas, money, pick ups etc etc. Even whilst we were away Dawn was on hand. We will definitely be using her services again.

Just returned from another sunny week in Tenerife, why do people always believe it’s full of teenagers and drunken English people! We have been travelling to the island on average once a year for the last 14 years, for the last eight we have used Dawn at Travel Counsellors, as well as for other holidays. When we only have a week and need a little sun Tenerife always delivers. Dawn is fantastic at finding the right holiday for us, when my daughter was younger it was more about entertainment and all inclusive for the ice cream , now its self catering and further out of town, we do like a walk! I can’t describe the joy of not only not worrying about parking at the airport (meet and greet) to finding the perfect getaway once there! No budget is judged as sometimes you just want a ‘cheap’ week in the sun. I have never yet been disappointed with any of the accommodation Dawn has found for us. I can’t thank her and the Travel Counsellors team enough for all help, advice and perfect holidays this one and lots more to come. Linda

Thanks Dawn for organising our holiday. You planned every detail to make the trip easy and enjoyable. A fantastic service and your level of knowledge and experience shows through. The flights and guides were great and the hotels were fantastic. Cambodia was our particular favourite. You provided a flexible service which after many swops and changes was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed at The Hotel Riu Monica in Nerja. Fantastic holiday thanks to Dawn for her expert advice and organisation. The room we had was first class with a superb view and excellent amenities.Transfer to and from the hotel was very efficient. We always book our holidays through Dawn as it takes the pressure off us organising things down to the very last detail. Congratulations to Dawn and team.

Hi Dawn, I just wanted to thank you for all of the fantastic work you do for us and let you know how much peace of mind the Travel Counsellors financial protection gives us. Our holiday was fantastic - Vista Cay was even better than last year (the exec condo is just amazing) and the Trump International in Miami is worth every penny. I would certainly recommend it. The rooms are so spacious and the staff are very friendly and cannot do enough to please. So very clean too. It's a really great hotel. Any way, enough of the Judith Chalmers! I want to go back :) Kind Regards Lisa

Dawn organised our family trip to the USA this year and did a great job. We had ideas around what we wanted to do e.g. Vegas, National Parks, San Francisco, Big Sur and ideally then New York. Dawn's effort and input ensured we had a fantastic family holiday. The itinerary she developed meant travel times worked, hotels were ideal, her tips were helpful and we were within budget.

I was recommended to contact Dawn by a friend and it was the best decision! Dawn is professional and extremely helpful. She was very prompt getting back to me and helping us throughout the process. Dawn understood exactly what we wanted from our holiday and helped us book everything from the hotel, transfers and activities. Thank you Dawn - i'll call you soon to book the next adventure!

Hi Dawn Well we had a fantastic wedding, a really perfect day, followed by an AMAZING honeymoon! We want to send you a BIG thank you for all your organisation, advice, and hotel tip-offs. The hotels in Kauai, Maui and Oahu gave us a bottle of champagne, Big Island gave us a photo frame, and Maui also upgraded us to a suite! We played frisbee in it just cos we could! The hotel in Chicago had expected us the night before, but we arrived early the following morning after our flight. They seemed very pushed for rooms so also put us in a suite! All of the islands were completely different and we made the most of them all: snorkelling, swimming with turtles, boat trips to extinct craters, fresh lava flow, space observatory, canyons, rainforests, waterfalls, Pearl Harbour, coffee farms, mac nut farms, cocktails, great fresh food... the list is endless! We also has a great time in San Francisco with the highlight of Alcatraz, and we really fell for Chicago. Spent a long time wandering around, getting a boat out onto the lake, listening to live Jazz & blues, and eating huge pizzas!!! Overall, an absolutely fabulous trip - thank you! Thanks again Suzanne & Ian

Hi Dawn, Just a quick email to say thank you so much for all your help while we were stuck in Vegas because of the Ash Cloud. You were an absolute star keeping us in touch with what was going on and also doing your best to get us home. I hope you realise just how much we appreciated everything you were doing and that we would have been lost without you. You were the only person who seemed to care what was happening to us and this meant a lot. I hope your other clients are now home and you can finally get some rest. Once again – you were FABULOUS!
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.
