I am your Personal Travel Counsellor based in Herefordshire close to the Welsh borders. I have been with Travel Counsellors for 11 years. Previously I worked as a manager in a couple of independent high street offices and also in business travel. I have over 20 years’ experience in the industry both here and in Australia.
Joining Travel Counsellors allows me to offer clients a more personalised service, ensuring the finer details of any travel arrangements are covered. With access to over 3000 suppliers this allows me to offer clients the flexibility, including packages, tailor-made itineraries, flights, car hire and accommodation only.
Travel Counsellors is one of the largest independent travel agencies in the world. As your own Personal Travel Counsellor, I can use the award winning technology coupled with my personal experience to offer the very best travel advice.
I have travelled extensively over the years with longer spells in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, west coast of Canada and Alaska. I enjoy skiing and have experienced many resorts in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, not forgetting visiting Father Christmas in Lapland. With the nature of my husband’s job I have visited many cities in the UK and Europe. I lived in Australia for 7 years and travelled around the country whilst there and frequently travel back to catch up with friends and family and update the various products available.
Travel Counsellors recognises that not everyone has time during the working week to discuss travel plans, as I work from home this allows you to contact me when most travel agencies are unavailable. I’m therefore free to help at a time that suits you.
Travel Counsellors now has a 24 hour duty office keeping us up to date with any situations around the world and gives are clients piece of mind that someone is available whilst they are overseas.
My aim is to always recommend the holiday that is right for you, at the same time as ensuring I deliver on value and personal service.
I would be delighted to discuss your travel arrangements with you, whether it's a trip in the UK, Europe or beyond, a business trip or to help turn your dream holiday into a reality.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
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 are very grateful to you for arranging everything so well. We have certainly never had a holiday booked for us with such ease and pleasure and we really cannot praise you too highly.

This year we have made trips to Nairobi, Bologna, and Frankfrurt and all travel arrangements have been made through Jane. Year in year out she takes care of everything for us with great personal skill and professionalism. We can't praise her highly enough since we can rest assured that there is nothing to worry about! Once again congratulations and thanks.

Having recently returned from a holiday in New England we felt it appropriate to compliment Jane of Travel Councellors on the impecable planning on our behalf. Our requirements weren't straight forward but everything went absolutely to plan - first class.

I cannot praise Jane enough for the help I received. She was excellent, very knowledgeable, easily contactable and very reliable, which all help to ensure we had a wonderful holiday. A real pleasure to work with, I would without question, use Jane again when I look to book my next holiday.

Nothing was ever too much trouble with Jane, despite us chopping and changing around a lot. Her knowledge was great and she really listened to what we wanted, finding some great holidays for us to choose from. She was always there to answer any questions and organise any add ons. Why would you ever want to trawl through the internet for months trying to save a couple of pounds with an option like Travel Counsellors

Thank you very much indeed for helping me to make sure an easy, efficient and comfortable trip to America. I have not had to organise a journey like that before and would have found it very nerve-wrecking without your expertise about current regulations and general knowhow.

Jane has been helping us since 2006 and the reason we continue is because she has assessed our character and advised us accordingly. We have only been delighted in all places we have been to selected by Jane plus we have taken her advise on when to go it alone but when to use tour guides. particularly in Australia and New Zealand she has been great.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. It was terrific! The accommodation, scenery, activities, food, reps were all fabulous and there were loads of sailing dinghies, windsurfers, kayaks, bicycles.... to keep us all busy. We sailed, windsurfed, water skied, dived, cycled, swam... and we have all come home looking so fit and well. We realised how fortunate we had been after a few phone calls from friends who also went on sailing holidays and found that the boats, windsurfers etc had to be paid for each time they were used and also found that there were never enough boats for everyone. We were so fortunate that you had found us such a great holiday - thank you for everything you did to make it such a success

I approached Jane asking if she could help set up an Autumn tour of New England around a family wedding in Portland. Jane took all the stress and hassle out of what was a complex exercise and dealt with us in a relaxed but highly professional manner. Jane also reminded us of issues that had completely escaped our notice. We now have what we hope will be a lovely, and memorable holiday.

This summer we visited the North Coast of Cornwall near Redruth for our week summer family holiday. The north coast is great for body boarding which is what the kids enjoy and also the mum's!

We stayed in a cottage, giving us more flexibility as travelling with another family we choose a small complex with some things for the kids to do. Luckily this year the weather was slightly better than usual. We mainly spent the...

We went in search of Father Christmas. We flew with Jet 2 from Manchester, as this was a chartered plan the seats were allocated for us and are required to check in at the airport. As the plane is mainly all families with younger children many of us were seated separately, many of the families were divided up being seats apart. On arrival in Ivaho we were met by the Elves who provided the entertainment, which passed the time while we waited for our bags. The transfer to Saariselka is about 25 minutes. Saariselka is a small...

This was a short break to catch up with an Australian friend who had been playing hockey in Holland. I flew from Birmingham, flight very easy and used the mobile boarding pass for the first time, as just myself travelling and what an easy experience. When I arrived in Amsterdam, I caught the train from the airport out to The Hague. Very easy everything all in English and the station is just underneath the airport. Tickets and their ou carte (travel cards) can be purchased from the ticket machines. I was off the train and in a coffee shop...
