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!
I use the latest technology and everything you book with me is 100% protected against supplier failure by either ATOL or the Travel Counsellors Financial Trust, giving you peace of mind. It is the best financial protection in the industry.
I am happy to provide you with travel quotes and suggest ideas. You can message me or telephone me and I promise that you will get a quick response. I also provide a Business Travel service.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so please either fill in and send the form below or simply give me a call and I can get things started for you:-

We struck lucky with Jane, we wanted a holiday in Corfu and Jane had lived there so had a great knowledge of the Island. Her relationship with the hotel has helped with an up-grade, fingers crossed for a great stay.

I have used TC and Jane now for a couple of holidays, I would not think about booking a holiday without Jane! I have recommended Jane to a few a my friends and if a colleague was talking about going away, I would definitely give them Jane's number.

I would definitely recommend using Jane to organise holidays. She is so helpful and goes above and beyond to get the very best for her clients. She booked and organised our last 2 holidays which were amazing and now are looking forward to our next one which we are going on in July.

Jane books all of our holidays and all of our families holidays. She is knowledgeable, she has great attention to detail and she is easy to work with. We don’t look anywhere else now as we trust we are getting a good deal and that everything will be booked carefully, visa sorted, parking arranged and we have personal contact while we are away should anything go wrong - which is invaluable.

Jane was very professional and informative when we approached her to book our honeymoon. Her advice was invaluable and we felt confident that what we have booked will be exactly what we were looking for in a honeymoon. We trust that Jane will give the best advice for the event and will not hesitate to use her again. We have already recommended her to many of our friends and family and cannot thank her enough for her advice and ease of booking.

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.

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.

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.

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...

I spent one summer week on the most photographed Greek Island – Santorini. It is beautiful! Facts Santorini, official known as Thira, is located 200kms from the Greek mainland, and is a member of the Cyclades group of Islands. It is at the core of an ancient volcano. 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,...
