My name is Jenny and I am a Travel Counsellor based in Barnet, North London. I have lived here for 10 years and prior to that lived in West London, Essex and Gloucestershire. We have three young children and a dog, and we love this area because it’s close to the city while still having so many green spaces and villages to explore.
Before becoming a Travel Counsellor I was helping my husband set up and run two businesses in the motor and property industry. Before that I always worked in the travel industry, right from leaving school. It started with an apprenticeship with Thomas Cook, followed by many years with Flight Centre when I moved to London.
I have had extensive experience in arranging travel for both leisure and business clients. My early years in travel were very much based around traditional package holidays and European beach destinations. My career in London was more varied with experience in booking First and Business fares, luxury tailor made travel, ski trips, honeymoons, round the world tickets and everything in between!
Personally, I have always loved to travel. I booked myself a round the world ticket at the age of 20 and went to Thailand, lived and worked in Australia, and then visited Fiji, Hawaii and Las Vegas on the way home. I was lucky to travel a second time when I met my husband and we took a six month trip around South and Central America. We spent a month in Brazil, a month in Argentina and took a crazy road trip from Lima to La Paz. We trekked the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu, and then relaxed in Panama, had three weeks of yoga in Costa Rica and then another amazing road trip from Belize to Mexico, which I absolutely loved.
In between, working in travel gave me the opportunity to take educational trips to Los Angeles, and on safari in Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar which is something I’ll never forget. I particularly love arranging safari trips and tailor made holidays to dream destinations like this where first hand experience is so useful.
I hope to be able to help you arrange your future trips whether they are for business or pleasure, and would love to hear from you soon.

Jenny was absolutely brilliant, I was struggling to make up my mind on where I wanted to go and she helped make my decision very easy. We had everything booked in a few days and Jenny was available anytime day or night. I could not have been happier with the service.

My husband and I had been looking to go to the Maldives for our delayed honeymoon when we were recommended to try Jenny. Well, what can I say, everything from beginning to end was fantastically organised. We had a budget to stick to and Jenny made it her mission to get us to where we wanted to go. Jenny was in contact throughout - even when she was away, she made sure we had a name and number to contact if we needed anything! The place was incredible and thanks to Jenny’s knowledge, she knew this island would be our dream come true - she wasn’t wrong! Can’t thank Jenny enough and definitely will be booking through Jenny again. Thank you!

We felt you gave good advice about what we could do in Thailand. The hotels look amazing. We were really impressed and struck by how much time you put in (mostly out of hours) which made it feel like such a personal service. Can’t wait for the holiday now!

Jenny is the best travel agent I have ever dealt with. She understood my needs and organised my holiday perfectly. She is not pushy in any way. I had been dealing with other travel agents including Travel Centre and as they were so pushy telling me I would lose my flights if I didn't confirm immediately it put me off using them again.

Hi Jenny Hope all is well. Just a quick note to thank you for your care and attention-to-detail on the recent air booking. My son, daughter-in-law and baby arrived safely last night, having been upgraded to Premium Economy to give them access to a bassinet. Will certainly use you again! Many thanks and best wishes for Travel Counsellors

I am a massive fan of afternoon tea. For my baby shower we had it at the Dorchester. I've had a few at spa hotels in the country, and a few trendy ones like Drink Shop & Do and a hen do at a hotel in Soho. The excitement I felt when I found out I'd been invited to the ultimate... A Royal Afternoon Tea at The Savoy. Royal, because it was the week of Harry and Meghan's wedding. A special menu was created to celebrate this special occasion at the favourite hotel of the Royal Family. In the entrance hall...

There is Lapland and then there is Lapland. You get the bright shiny twinkling Lapland with Santa's village and karaoke, and you get the remote, snowy wonderland 250km above the Arctic Circle. To be honest I would have liked to go to either of them - but the latter fitted our available dates, budget and I liked the idea of a truly authentic experience. Our kids were age 8, 7 and 3 at the time of the trip. We wanted to take our eldest Lily Rose before she got too old and wise for this magic trip - to meet the...

We booked our holiday to Grand Palladium Palace around 10 months ahead. I had just joined Travel Counsellors and needed an incentive to work hard! Holidays for families of five who like 5-star all-inclusive in school holidays don't come cheap! We flew with Thomson, about to become Tui, which was nice after easyJet and Ryanair the last few years. Ibiza is a nice quick flight and we landed with no bother, and were very quickly on the transfer bus. Even happier when it only took 10 mins to drop us off, the holiday was off to a great start. Grand Palladium Palace...

I've been to Ireland lots of time to visit my husband's family and we actually got married in Cork in 2012. I already liked Ireland a lot but had never really travelled around the west of the country. When David was invited over to a Gaelic football dinner in Westport, County Mayo, we decided to make a holiday out of it and travel around on a road trip with the kids. We flew into Knock which is the tiniest airport! So quick to get through. We picked up our hire car, which was so cheap, a Nissan Qashqai less than £90 for...

Three years ago two of our best friends (godparents to our kids) moved from Harlesden, to Mallorca. It was totally brave and we were in awe because it's the kind of thing we all dream of doing. This blog is about the holidays we have enjoyed in Mallorca since their move. We have three children called Lily Rose age 7, Ivy age 6 and Arthur age 2. Our first trip to Mallorca was long before Arthur was born. The girls were age 1 and 2. We stayed in a villa in Gotmar near Puerto Pollensa. The villa was one of those...
