Hello and welcome!
I am Debbie Kearney, your personal Travel Counsellor based in Colwyn Bay, North Wales – a very lovely part of the world.
Working in travel is not a job, it is a joy.
I take great pleasure in assisting with all travel arrangements while offering a high level of customer service and care, whether it is a two night UK trip or a round-the-world cruise, a romantic honeymoon for two or a bespoke tailor-made itinerary for a large group tour, I can help with it all. I have many years of experience behind me, having successfully arranged a variety of trips, and alongside the Travel Counsellors 100% financial guarantee you can feel assured you are in very good hands.
I have been fortunate to visit many destinations over the years, both on personal holidays and work related trips. I was recently asked my favourite place so far, and I struggled to answer as every destination is different….travel is about creating new memories and experiences and I am blessed I have many to look back on, but excited to discover so many more!
Let me help you with your journey, to create your memories.
Contact me to plan your dream trip – I very much look forward to speaking with you soon.

As always, excellent service. We first went to Debbie on the recommendation of an acquaintance and we have stayed since!

I have been provided with a very friendly, helpfull and extremely efficient service. I would most definitely recommend Debbie Kearney to all my family and friends without hesitation and I look forward to using Debbie again in the future. She is, in my view, an asset to your Company. She should also be commended for her superb service, not only to me, but also for her efficiency in organising the very complex needs of the Cor Meibion Choir Trip to Canada last Autumn.

After organising our once in a lifetime anniversary trip to Las Vegas last year, when it came to booking for 2015 we had no hesitation in calling Debbie. She knows exactly what we like and don't, arranges all the little extras we require, as well as coming up with ideas and suggestions. I can't thank Debbie enough as we needed to contact her during our recent holiday to Egypt - she was such a huge help and went above and beyond as always. I would have no hesitation in recommending Debbie to anyone planning a holiday - we've already booked with her again for 2016. Thank you Debbie!

We booked a complicated month long trip through Debbie and the service and advice were both exceptional. Highly recommended.

We booked our holiday through Debbie at Travel Counsellors as she was recommended to us by a friend. Once we had given Debbie an idea of where we wanted to go, length of stay and budget she was able to find us exactly what we were looking for. Our hotel in Venice was at the heart of everything and showed us the real Venice as opposed to the main commercial hotels that we would usually use. The same was experienced at Lake Garda, a lovely hotel that was close enough to public transport and in a great location with stunning views! Debbie was very knowledgeable, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her, whatever we asked! All in all a fantastic service that was delivered in a professional manner. We will definitely be using Debbie's services again in the future! Thank you.

We have been booking our holidays through Debbie Kearney for some years now, and each time she delivers 100% support and customer service. I have no problem in recommending her to any of my family and friends as I know she'll do the same for them. We always have the feeling nothing is too much trouble and her attention to detail gives us both such peace of mind which is invaluable. We look forward to booking with Debbie for many more years to come.

Debbie has organized a couple of trips to the USA for 2013 with her usual efficiency. Her advice has been greatly appreciated. I will certainly continue to consult with Debbie on future holidays.

In October 2011 my wife and I had a 12 day Med cruise on Ruby Princess, arranged via Debbie. Having had little cruising experience it was important to get advice and help, especially as my wife had needed some convincing of the wisdom of such a holiday. Debbie rightly advised that we book a multi-port trip and on one of the top ships. Her advice was always given trying to bear in mind our needs - you want when on a new venture. We enjoyed the holiday thanks in no small part to Debbie's efforts. We plan to book more holidays through Debbie. As my wife and I are both full time workers with busy lives it helps enormously to be able to have help (and counselling!) with complicated or new holidays.

My wife and I have known Debbie as a travel advisor for at least 13 and a half years and in that time she has arranged a number of holidays for us. At all times she has been very attentive,cheerful and understanding in helping with any of our problems or queries. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.

Debbie organised a holiday in Rhodes for my daughter and me this summer. When I got in touch with Debbie she understood exactly what I wanted. We wanted something with a little extra luxury but not to have to fly for too many hours. or pay a major premium. In fact the holiday was perfect and just what we wanted and in the price I had suggested. Thank you Debbie. PS I liked the personal contact too, and Debbie's personal touches of written labels and plastic bags for going through customs!!!

I wanted to plan a special trip for our 25th wedding Anniversary to India, and being a retired travel agent I am probably one of her worst customers. I wanted the best at a reasonable price and Debbie worked tirelessly to get us just what we wanted at a fantastic price. Our friends were so impressed with our itinerary they decided to join us and from the romantic twosome there are now 10 of us heading to India in February. I cannot praise her enough for her patience and skill in achieving exactly what we wanted at a price we could afford.

Debbie arranged a trip to Australia for my wife and I, which involved 7 flights, car hire and several hotel bookings. She visited us at home to ensure these arrangements were as exactly as we wanted them and several alterations to the plans were made. The whole holiday went without a hitch. Debbie applies a very personal touch to her work.

We can't thank Debbie enough for her excellent service and attention to every detail when we took our recent holiday to Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand. Due to the volcanic ash problem our departure was delayed by 11 days; reorganising everything must have been a nightmare for Debbie but she took it all in her stride, leaving us relatively stress free while she beavered away. Thank you!

Debbie was fantastic at assisting us with booking our holiday to Australia in October/November. She was particularly helpful when we decided to change our accommodation not long before we were due to depart! She is very knowledgeable & great at recommending trips etc. I always recommend her to my friends & work colleagues - she recently booked a great family holiday to Egypt for my colleague

We usually book holidays ourselves on line as High Street travel agents leave us disappointed with what we actually get. Debbie organised a 3 centre holiday for us in Morocco. She listened to what we were looking and worked hard to fit the jigsaw of our holiday together, finding non-brochure accomodation and speaking to people who really knew Morocco. Her time, thought & experience was exceptional.

We hadn't planned an early break, but as the weather was particularly cold and awful we found ourselves pining for some warmth, so when the invitation arose for us to join friends in Abu Dhabi for a few days in March, we jumped at it! We took the 19:10 direct overnight flight from Manchester to Abu Dhabi with Etihad Airways, a great flight which had us arriving around 6½ hours later into a very pleasant 24 degrees early the following morning! We stayed just a short distance from the airport at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi Grand Canal, where we found ourselves...

This was our first big holiday on our own since having our daughter 20 years ago, a trip to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary....no pressure to get this right then! We arrived at our first destination, Cape Town on the 10th March 2017 for a 4 night stay at the boutique Hotel Queen Victoria hotel in a great location close to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront – great place to wander around with its array of restaurants, bars, shops and street entertainment with a really good vibe. Day 2 - Up bright and early on a lovely clear and sunny day, we...

As you can imagine, I have a long wish-list of places I would like to visit and Barcelona was very high up under the city break options. When our friends invited us to join them in Barcelona to celebrate a significant birthday, we jumped at the opportunity! We travelled out of a sunny but cold Liverpool, arriving just over two hours later to a very wet Barcelona! However, this didn't deter us. After checking in at our hotel we were soon making our way into the centre via the efficient Metro system and walking along Las Ramblas. Fortunately we...

We decided early on in 2011 that we would like to ‘escape Christmas’ for one year, and as Thailand has always been on our wish list of places to visit, this was where we decided to go. What a fantastic choice we made - we LOVED Thailand! We went to Manchester Airport on the afternoon of the 15 December for the overnight Etihad Airways flight to Abu Dhabi connecting onwards to Bangkok and then an Air Asia flight to Phuket. We had chosen to stay in Khao Lak, approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Phuket Airport, so we did have quite a...

Sunshine....we needed sunshine!! As the school holidays had been so cold and wet, and daughter wasn't returning to school until the 6th September, we decided to head off to the sunshine for a week to re-charge the batteries. So on Sunday 29th August we took an early flight out to the Algarve. This was our first visit to the Algarve and won't be the last - we loved it! We collected our hire car from the airport and set off for Alvor in the Western Central part of the Algarve. The roads are great and we managed to find...

Dubai has intrigued me for many years now and I have been desperate to experience this destination first-hand. So when, after completing the Dubai Tourism training course, I was offered a place on an educational trip I absolutely jumped at the chance! Etihad Airways provided an excellent flight direct from Manchester to Abu Dhabi, which is just a one hour coach transfer into central Dubai. I was extremely fortunate to experience the wonderful Pearl Business Class with flat bed on the outward overnight flight - I felt like royalty, the service and the food was exceptional and a truly...

It's a few years now since my last visit to Tenerife and with the family all ready for a week of relaxation, we thought we'd spend Easter in the sun. So on Monday 6th April, shortly after a four hour flight and a twenty minute taxi ride, we found ourselves sitting in the warm sunshine of our balcony - bliss! We chose a hotel in the Costa Adeje area of southern Tenerife, an area I was keen to experience. Less than a five minute walk downhill took us to the modern Plaza Del Duque shopping centre...

Barbados has always been on my list of 'Places I Must Visit', (along with a whole long list of other destinations!). I just love to travel and now my daughter is that bit older, our family holidays are venturing that bit further afield. So on the 6th July 2008 we found ourselves onboard a Virgin aircraft bound for 2 weeks of sunshine in Barbados. The 8 hour flight passed very quickly and soon enough we were being welcomed in the arrivals hall by a lovely Bajan gentleman, sporting our name on a board, ready to whisk us away to the...
