Welcome to Travel With Enfys!
My name is Enfys and I'm your local Travel Counsellor here in Bedford, though my clients are spread nationwide.
I book and manage all types of incredible holidays and travel experiences for my clients. Every enquiry is different and as I build a relationship with my customers I find out what would be the perfect choice of trip for them and build a seamless set of arrangements to suit. My customers then tend to come back to me for their trips, mini-breaks and adventures so I get to know them well. This allows me to really understand what each customer enjoys and enables me to make recommendations to suit their personal travel style & budgets again and again.
I book all types of wonderful holidays from worldwide group tours and cruises to tailored trips; for example winding itineraries through Asia, road trips in the USA, bespoke honeymoons, luxury family beach holidays & Disney adventures. I also offer incredible safaris, villas and deluxe All-Inclusive holidays, amazing group tours, UK cottages, European trips, and cruises.. the list is endless!
I have the expertise and award-winning Travel Counsellor technology to make your booking an enjoyable, smooth and secure process. Your arrangements will be 100% financially protected and I will be your personal Travel Counsellor managing your booking from beginning to end; and then again for your subsequent holidays. From start to finish I manage the full umbrella of arrangements including flights, accommodation, car hire, holiday experiences, reservations and even the airport car park and pre- departure bits they need. I’m like a holiday personal assistant but without the price tag. There are no extra booking fees for using my service – like most travel agents - and any quote I provide is fully non-obligation.
Travel Counsellors have consistently received 'excellent value for money' ratings from our customers for years too. If you're interested in seeing our amazing Trust Pilot review then have a look and you'll see we have over 3,500 4.9/5 reviews which is testament to the care and attention we give each of our customers.
I can also offer bespoke group travel arrangements; from school groups, to cathedral groups, to corporate groups and wellness groups. Because what I do is so tailored I can arrange anything which is required and Travel Counsellors have an excellent groups department who I work alongside to make these complicated itineraries run smoothly.
Travel Counsellors are a leading, British, Travel franchise company which gives me the backing and financial protection of a large company whilst running my own personal With Enfys travel business. I have worked in the travel industry since 2010 and have been lucky enough to travel the world a huge amount on business and leisure. If you are looking for impartial and honest advice, please give me a ring or send me an email. Don’t be put off by my difficult-to-pronounce-name, it’s a Welsh name pronounced ‘En-vis’!

Some of my wonderful repeat customers came back to me this weekend as they wanted to find a luxury-log-cabin style lodge for their October break. They wanted a hot-tub, views, a wonderful location, and top facilities in a beautiful setting. And today we booked this place - doesn't it look wonderful? These guys actually made my day/ week/ month as they said they wanted to book with me, even though they could have got a special discount if they booked online elsewhere. I was soo touched by this, and I'm so glad to have such great customers who come back...

I just love an impromptu little mini-break! We've come to Bristol for a couple of nights this week and it's great to be away... despite Storm Francis howling away yesterday! The kids were so excited to see the city lights and enjoy looking at Bristol's amazing street art and all the boats in the harbour last night. We've been on several city-breaks with the children this year and the more we do it the more I realise that family mini-breaks are just the best. The kids are only 2 & 4 and as always there are stressful moments in getting away but family...

How's your summer going?! After complaining all week last week that it was too hot, today it poured all day and we now have the fire on after getting utterly drenched at Woburn Safari! Mad weather! September is usually one of my busiest holiday booking months of the year so it's nice to enjoy a relatively quiet few weeks during August with the family and enjoying days out like these. What have you enjoyed this summer? And what are you looking forward to in the coming months?!

Last night we escaped the kids and went out. Hallelujah (never happens)! My husband and I have travelled a lot, including all over South America, Australia and New Zealand, Japan, China, Mongolia, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia plus all over Europe and a bit in California. We travelled solidly for about 2 years which is what inspired me to begin my career in travel and I've since been away a huge amount with my work. Each night whilst we were away we would play cards most evenings... there were no smart phones then! ... and last night when we went out...

Turn away now if you don't like beautiful Italian villas..! Or, if you are in fact quite partial to a rustic & charm filled private country house then have a snoop at what I booked for a new customer recently. This place sleeps 11, has it's own private pool, the most wonderful outdoor pizza oven & dining areas, beautiful un-manicured gardens and just everything you'd want from a stay in Italy. It's about an hour drive from Pisa and just a stone throw from the finery of Florence. The family I have booked it for will have all the joys of Tuscany as...

Long post alert! I was asked recently– “what do you recommend for people with older children”? And if got me thinking – Do any of you have older children? Maybe you’re looking for a family holiday beyond the ordinary beach break? After a quick brainstorm here are a few ideas to get you started. I reckon that any destination you as the parents want to visit can be tailored to incorporate tons of wonderful experiences for the whole family. > You could go on Safari, children & teenagers love animals so why not take them on a trip they’ll remember forever? > You could...

I love Japan, and if you're thinking of heading that way then please get in touch. I just love the tranquil gardens, amazing shinkansen (bullet) trains, the food, and the traditional stays and the onsen experiences (think thermal baths). The neon cities are mind-blowing and the nature trails and hiking second to none. From arriving to Narita Airport I took the train into Tokyo to spend a few nights then headed down to Hakone. In Hakone we stayed in a wonderful Ryokan (traditional Japanese Inn), where I enjoyed the Onsen, total relaxation and the incredible traditional food that's served as...

Over the years I have spent months and months out in Asia; it's such an amazing destination. The variety of what's on offer is staggering. From luxurious remote beaches, to incredible temples, wonderful landscapes, busy markets, and thriving cities - there is no end to what's on offer. There is just so much to discover, taste, experience, feel and enjoy. One of the most common questions I get asked is 'when is the best time to go' and in all honesty there is not a simple answer. From November to March is peak season as it's the driest time...

I was reminded this week about just how much I love Vietnam & Cambodia. I've travelled extensively all over Asia and love the variety of what you can do. Did you know that you can zip-line over the Angkor Temples in Cambodia, cruise in Halong Bay, eat the best food, have a pristine beach stay, and hike in the mountains around Sapa all in one 14-day holiday? Vietnam & Cambodia make the perfect pair and you can enjoy both a culturally rich tour as well as making sure it feels like a holiday with plenty of relaxation too. I've been to...

Hooray! I can book all of Sykes UK Holiday Cottages as well as all of Hoseasons properties amongst others. The UK is such a wonderful place to take a holiday and I have so many lovely places to offer you. I'm originally from North Wales so I'll probably try and convince you to take your holiday in Snowdonia but I can also book stays across the UK, I'm just a tiny bit biased :) And no, of course there are no booking fees for booking Sykes or any other cottage with me!

My (now) husband and I spent months in South America a few years ago and we celebrated New Years here in Rio de Janeiro. It's a vast and stunning city. This is an image of the view from the Sugarloaf Mountain - you can take a cable car up to the summit. From the top, you'll be able to enjoy 360-degree views across the sprawling city below, Guanabara Bay, Copacabana Beach and up to Christ the Redeemer statue. The itineraries you can take from Rio are amazing and so diverse. Have you ever looked up Iguazu Falls?!

Have I mentioned how much I love Peru? I spent just under 2 months there with my husband some years ago. We went to Spanish school in Cuzco, hiked the Inca Trail, saw incredible condors (massive indigenous birds), enjoyed Pisco Sours (vile egg-white-based alcohol), saw the white stone and beauty of Arequipa, hiked down into the Colca Canyon which is one of the deepest canyons in the world. We rafted down incredible rivers, camped, biked, relaxed, enjoyed the 'highest Irish Bar in the World' and so much more. Before I worked in travel, I travelled. We backpacked around the world...

Enfys has been brilliant to deal with ever since we first started planning a trek to Everest Base Camp over a year ago. Not only did she completely move the holiday for us (and my uncle and aunt) once when our plans changed, and once when we then cancelled our holiday. She liaised both with the tour company and the airline with the minimum of fuss and all it needed from me was one phone call to Enfys. Our refunds swiftly followed and as a result I would have no hesitation in recommending Enfys and Travel Counsellors when planning your holiday. On the positive side of things, Enfys successfully found us a luxury lodge in Shropshire between Lockdowns and planned a trip to Lapland. We will return to the latter when the lockdown has ended and probably go there in 2022. In fact, she will be getting a lot of phone calls from us from Spring onwards as we her need to organise my 60th trip to Italy, rebook Nepal and probably about half a dozen other requests to catch up for lost time. Enfys is a complete star and I highly recommend her!

Pandemic Cancellation Review: Enfys/Travel counsellors were supportive through the pandemic and offered a number of options when dealing with cancelled holidays, always making you feel that your trip and cancellation was important to her as it was to you, even though it must have been a very tough time for the industry. I hope you have a lovely Christmas, I look forward to rebooking with you next year!

Pandemic Cancellation Review: We were looking forward to our Great Rail trip to Switzerland, a company we have used several times before, always booking direct. This time we booked through Enfys and are so grateful. The holiday was booked for April and obviously had to be cancelled but because it was booked through Travel Counsellors there was no problem as we were compensated wit TC credit, not Great Rail vouchers. Enfys has now booked us in for a trip on the North Coast 500 including a bucket list visit to Orkney using that credit. Marvellous service as ever from Enfys. Thank you so much.

Pandemic Cancellation Testimonial: Enfys helped us navigate what could have been a very complicated and upsetting process to cancel our 2020 holiday plans. We were gutted we were unable to travel, and equally gutted for Enfys after the amazing work she had done in creating an exciting itinerary for us. But, she managed to help us to unpick our plans so we were not left out of pocket. Her advice was clear and easy to understand (unlike our travel insurance policy!) and we felt well looked after. We cannot wait to come back in 2021 and book another trip - but this time we WILL be going on it!

Pandemic Cancellation Testimonial: This year Enfys organised the trip of a lifetime for us, trekking to Everest Basecamp! Perfect itinerary with a great company and good deal on flights, then came Covid! No worries, with great professionalism she kept on top of things and arranged full refunds of all our costs. Can't tell you how pleased we are, if it weren't for Enfys I'm sure we would still be fighting for refunds. Want to be looked after from start to finish? Trust Enfys.

Pandemic Cancellation Service Testimonial: We were both so pleased with how you handled the whole process, keeping us updated regularly with progress and explaining in detail all the measures that you were taking to obtain the refunds from the different suppliers. You were excellent at giving us clear options and suggestions with regard to our insurers if we failed to obtain a refund, and although the whole process at the time seemed to take a while, in hindsight it was actually a very short timeframe and we received all our holiday money back in full, which was a great result given the circumstances and at the beginning of the process would not have been even a best case scenario for us. Travel Counsellors seemed to take a very personal and supportive approach given how many other refunds they must have been processing, and overall I think everything was handled extremely well.

Pandemic Cancellation Service Review: Enfys put a lot of time into finding myself and two girlfriends a perfect holiday in Zakynthos Greece, even though we had an extremely tight low budget. Sadly due to covid19 our holiday plans were cancelled and Enfys again came to our rescue and sorted out all the refunds on our behalf. I would thoroughly recommend Enfys and when we can go on holiday again I will be asking Enfys to arrange a perfect holiday for us again, hopefully in 2021.

An extraordinary journey into the Polar night was made even more wonderful with Enfys's help. She booked our rather complicated journey, getting much better deals than I could do. We had privileged seats on the plane to Svalbard, nice, and excellent hotels en-route & in Oslo, really conveniently situated and with super Norwegian breakfasts! And she doesn't even charge any fees!! Enfys is a star.

Enfys has booked some wonderful trips for my husband and I to the US and Japan. Her knowledge of destinations is second to none and she has made some excellent suggestions to enhance our trips. Enfys takes a lot of care and time to find the perfect thing and she doesn't mind going back a few times to make sure everything is perfect. She has also sent us a guide book for our upcoming trip, which was a lovely extra touch. Thank you!

Enfys Maloney was recommenced to us as a Travel Counsellor but I had never heard of such a being. Wondered if this was going to be a fee paying service and probably very expensive. Decided to give it a whirl and rang Enfys with a couple of ideas for holidays in 2019. Very soon Enfys came back to us with suggestions, including proposed flights and accommodation. A personal relationship and service resulted from this and we wouldn’t think now of organising a holiday without using Enfys. The personal contact is invaluable. A problem occurred on one holiday when we found ourselves stranded in Palermo. A quick phone call to Enfys helped us sort out the issue and it was very reassuring to know there was someone there for us when in difficulty. Enfys has the ability to make us feel secure with our holiday bookings and takes the stress out of travel. We highly recommend her.

Enfys has helped me put together a trip as a birthday gift for my wife. She was took down my requirements and delivered a brilliant result. Not only did she deliver on everything she promised, her follow up service has been excellent - if the trip is as good as the service Enfys has delivered it will be exceptional. If you need some one who will give you expert travel advise and put together packages I cannot recommend Enfys highly enough.
