I specialise in putting together amazing trips for my customers, with an emphasis on the travel experience, memories, and accessing our destination management companies worldwide. You also have access to the myTC app.
My name is Jane and I live in Hampshire. I started working in the travel industry 30 years ago in London, and it’s all I ever wanted to do!
My aim is for your entire booking journey to be a very happy one, from planning to booking, pre-travel, your travel and your return. I care deeply for all my customers from beginning to end.
I have had the opportunity to travel worldwide and some of the places I have visited are Europe, Seychelles, The Maldives, Mauritius, Thailand, the USA and Africa. I enjoy skiing and l love to cruise. I have lived on the Greek Island of Corfu and have visited many of the Greek Islands. My top two travel experiences are sailing on the QM2 from New York and lounging on the beach in the Seychelles! I'm off to Vietnam this year.
I believe that the most important aspect of excellent customer service is keeping promises.
I promise that I will give you a personal service and match the right holiday to you. I will always go that extra mile and assist you to consider every aspect of your travels. If I haven’t been to your chosen destination, one of my colleagues will have been there. That’s the advantage of working alongside an international travel company!

Jane has been very helpful to our family and friends over the past few years. She has organised holidays and weekend breaks, helped us check in, arranged seats on planes and even checked in for us while we were abroad. Jane always is so organised with our trips and nothing is too much trouble. Always would recommend Jane in the future for that personal touch and trusting someone to book you a really good holiday.

Holiday recommendations arrived very quickly after my initial enquiry. Could not believe how easy the whole booking of a holiday could be! All paperwork printed out by Travel Counsellor, totally hassle and stress free... wonderful. Jane responded to any email enquiries within hours and kept me informed of her progress along the way. A wonderful first( and I am sure not last) experience.

A friend recommended Jane following a conversation about a holiday she had recently taken. As we usually book our holidays ourselves using online searches/booking sites, we were not sceptical however slightly unsure as to why to use a travel professional. From my first contact Jane guided me through the options, recommended ideas and supported until the booking was confirmed. We were in contact ahead of departure and she even checked in with us whilst away. Top class service, will definitely book through Jane again and recommend to more of our friends.

Jane has been a massive support to me booking both complicated business travel arrangements often at the last minute as well as book holidays for me. I have recommended Jane to many friends and work colleagues and they all share my view! Simply put Jane is a cut well above the rest of her peers in the industry!

Jane is always extremely helpful and accommodating to the needs of her customers. Our first trip with Jane would have been a complete disaster without her due to flight cancelations, but she was very quick to react and kept us updated regularly. I wouldn’t even consider booking a holiday in any other way

We just wanted to email to say thank you so much for organising our honeymoon to the Maldives, and for looking after us. We absolutely loved every minute of it.

This is our second holiday we have booked with Jane and she is amazing at sorting out our holiday requirements. We had several changes which Jane happily accommodated and she provided us with lots of information about our choose destination and activities for us to choose from.

Vietnam – Resilient people, breath taking landscapes and world-famous cuisine. It borders with Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. I travelled from South to North in December 2018. I felt safe and the people are friendly and unassuming. The scenery is stunning. Day 1: Saigon – Ho Chi Minh City This is the capital of the South. From here you can access the Southern Islands, go hiking in Dalat and explore the Mekong delta. I spent two nights in Saigon. The standard of accommodation is good, and there are plenty of good bar and restaurant choices. I stayed next to the waterfront. This...

An ancient and romantic city located in the Lazio region of central Italy, and the capital of Italy. Rome is a year-round destination and perfect for a mini-break. I spent three nights there with my husband for our wedding anniversary. It has been a long time since I’ve had a culture shock! Rome was stunning, interesting and totally unexpected! Beautiful buildings, cobbled streets, lovely restaurant choices and easy to get around. We travelled with British Airways from London Gatwick to Rome Fiumicino. It is also possible to fly to Ciampino airport. From Fiumicino we took a small shuttle bus transfer, which...

The Island’s two towns, Fira and oia are perched on the cliff tops at the highest parts of the island, with cave like buildings. Fira overlooks the Islands harbour, and visitors walk or ride up and down the steep winding path between the Harbour and the town. The archaeological remains of ancient Thira date back to...

In April 2015 I travelled to the Maldives for my honeymoon. Having previously travelled to the Seychelles and Mauritius, I thought there would be nothing to compare in this area of the world. The Maldives is paradise and my favourite! Facts Just north of the equator the Maldives are 1% land and 99% ocean, they consist of approximately 1190 coral islands, grouped in a double chain of 27 atolls. They are spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometres, making the country one of the most unique destinations in the world. Only 200 of the islands are inhabited. They are full of swaying palms,...
