Hi, I’m Janet, based on the border of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. I am extremely passionate about travel and love nothing more than planning tailormade adventures.
I have access to hundreds of suppliers and can arrange short breaks, to cruises, a family holiday in the Mediterranean to a luxury honeymoon in the Maldives. And everything I book is 100% financially protected through the Travel Counsellors Trust.
My Filipino mother gave me the first insight into what this wonderful world has to offer, and so my travel bug started from a very young age. My travels have taken me to remote parts of the Philippines, to enjoying sunsets in South Africa, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Indonesia, Barbados, Las Vegas, New York, Italy…the list goes on.
Think of me as your personal travel concierge and I will handle the whole process from start to finish. Which means all you need to worry about is packing your suitcase and remembering where your passport is.
I work from home so that I can be there for my two amazing kids, which means I can be flexible to work around your schedule and am available to speak outside of the normal 9-5.
Destinations on my bucket list include Sri Lanka, Mauritius and Belize – what’s on yours?
I’d love to find out more and help you create your memories that will last a lifetime.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

1. If you can - check in early I always suggest to pre-book your seats, but if you haven’t done this when you booked, then I would definitely make sure that you aim to select your seats as soon as check-in opens. It can be a complete pain if you aren’t sat together. Sometimes a kind stranger will swap seats with you, but why have the added stress of asking them and what if they won’t! 2. Allow enough time Ok so it’s an obvious one I know, but if you’re someone who generally likes to fly by the seat of your pants...

I’m not suggesting we sit in the corner of the room or on the bottom step of the stairs, but I do think taking time out to regulate ourselves can only be a good thing. Today I met with some fellow Travel Counsellors and spent just a few hours away from the laptop and mobile phone relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of Thoresby Hotel and Spa in Nottinghamshire. On arrival, I wasn’t sure what to expect as my preconception was that a couple of hours out was just not going to cut the mustard - but how wrong I was....

Back in October 2017 I was lucky enough to win a place on a trip with Hurtigruten, on board MS Kong Harald from Tromso to Bergen. If you’ve not heard of Hurtigruten, they’ve been sailing along the Norwegian coast since 1893 delivering the post, cargo and passengers to numerous tiny villages, towns and cities along the way. Today their vessels depart Bergen daily for the voyage over the Arctic Circle to/from Kirkenes still ‘working’ delivering post, cargo etc. Given the spectacular scenery it has become known as the ‘world’s most beautiful voyage’ and absolutely the best way to see Norway....

I recently spent a long weekend (4 days/3 nights) in Malta. A super quick 3-hour flight from East Midlands and we were out of the cold chill and in the wonderful all year-round warm climate of Malta. I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect, as the only people I really knew that had been to Malta were of the older generation (aka mum and dad and a few of their friends), but I was happy to make up my own mind. Just a short 15-minute transfer from the airport to our hotel, The Corinthian, St. George, close to...

I’ve just been reading about all the wonderful places that Italy has to offer and it has inspired me to quickly share why I love Italy so much that I chose to get married there! Where to start – well you can’t really go to Italy without going to Rome. I was lucky enough to visit Rome a few years ago and from the moment we arrived in this jaw-dropping city I was a taken back with the sheer size and magnificence of some of the famous landmarks. From the Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain, walking up and...

Janet has had to move a trip we had planned abroad twice and a local UK trip twice because of Coronavirus and she has been brilliant. She listened to what I needed and was very attentive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Massive thank you to Janet Tomblin for organising this fabulous holiday for us. She makes it so easy, nothing is ever too much trouble and we didn't have to worry about anything. She even made sure we could stay in the hotel an extra day when our flight was delayed!

Janet is fabulous, I wouldn’t go anywhere else to arrange a holiday or short break or try to do it myself. Leave it in her capable hands and she always delivers and goes the extra mile! Thanks so much!

Janet was INCREDIBLE helping us to plan our honeymoon to the Maldives and Dubai. And she was even more amazing when our flight was cancelled as we were sat on the runway! Janet sorted everything to ensure that all our connections were reorganised so we could relax and enjoy our flight to the Maldives. She was also on hand to help with any queries and also gave us a lovely personal and warm service throughout. We will definitely be booking future trips with Janet and would highly recommend using her.

I was reluctant to use Travel Counsellors at first, it just seemed so unnecessary with the internet. Having experienced Travel Counsellors and the service from Janet Tomblin I just wish I'd started using them sooner! Janet makes finding and booking a suitable place for a holiday so much easier. I recommend both Travel Counsellors and Janet without reservation.

Janet goes out of her way to find out exactly what we wanted on our holiday and was able to put together a package which suited all our needs. Communication between us has been regular, not too much, not too little. She is also going out of her way to help us with restaurant choices to suit my vegan lifestyle. I'd highly recommend using Janet and indeed we shall be doing just that again ourselves. Thank you

Want to say a huge thank you to Janet Tomblin for arranging everything for our lovely holiday. We are back now and had an amazing time. I always get nervous about booking holidays, never know if it’s the best place or protected if any problems etc, Janet did it from start to finish, checking in for us there and back, lovely little token notes through out, a welcome home letter and I just urge anyone wanting to book a holiday to get in touch with her. Booking a holiday has never been as easy. Thank you!

From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
