Don’t you find that organising travel is time consuming, frustrating and full of confusing travel jargon. Don’t worry, I am on hand to help.
My name is Jill, a personal Travel Counsellor based in Wellington, Somerset and welcome to my webpage. I have a passion for travel, with an extensive knowledge of the industry and a desire to provide exceptional customer service. Whether travelling for business or pleasure, I will ensure all arrangements are made with minimal fuss, tailored to the individual requirements of the traveller and at a cost that suits.
I specialise in complex itineraries and enjoy getting stuck in to the most challenging of trips. My background in Corporate and Marine travel has made me an expert in unusual requests and last minute panics.
Considering the finer details of holiday destinations and helping customers to make the most out of their travel is often overlooked. I help people seize every opportunity to enjoy their holiday to the fullest and make everlasting memories.
I keep up to date with the latest developments in the travel industry and am an active member of the ITM (Institute of Travel and Meetings). I regularly attend seminars and conferences to ensure that I am current with the latest travel trends, adding value to the overall customer experience.
On a personal level, I have travelled all over the world with a tour around China being a particular highlight. Having lived in Cyprus and the Falkland Islands, I was able to travel extensively within each country and as such, I have particular expertise in and around those areas.
So get in touch and let me take the strain out of your arranging your next trip.
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 was lucky enough to get a place on a trip to Morocco, hosted by the Moroccan Tourist Board, to find out more about the country and what it offers. Having never visited before and Morocco as a destination has always fascinated me, I jumped at the chance. Marrakesh is a mere 4 hour flight from the UK but feels much further. Leaving a gloomy March day behind in London, I was greeted with the welcome warmth of the Moroccan sunshine, and the stunning views of the Atlas Mountains. A short drive from the airport and we were at our...

A friend of mine has recently visited Venice, he is a keen photographer and the shots he got whilst there are truly amazing. I am in love with Italy and have visited several times but have never made it to Venice. Phil's photo's have truly inspired me to find out more about this beautiful city. Venice is a labyrinth of stunning architecture, mysterious passageways and of course, it's famous canals. Being only a short flight from the UK, it is the ideal location for a weekend break. You can chill out in Piazza San Marco, take a romantic gondola ride or...

Jill is fantastic and patient. Never minds taking the time to work through the options with me to make sure that the trip is best suited to what I need. I have used Jill for both personal and business travel and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Jill truly is a at the top of her game with regards to business travel. For this trip to the US I am doing 8 cities, 17 meetings, 7 hotels, and 10 flights in 20 days. Only possible because Jill choreographed the entire trip, making sure I have everything I need. She makes me look good! Second to none.

Jill is friendly, very helpful and well informed. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and she's provided the answers to the many questions I've asked. It hasn't taken her long to understand the sort of holiday we like and made appropriate suggestions - not like our usual Travel Agent experience.! So glad she was recommended to us.

I totally rely on Jill for all my travel requirements. I have given her challenges for trips around the world and she never fails to come up with appropriate and imaginative suggestions. She is quick to research options and is able to call on the Counsellor network when necessary. Our fly-drive to Mexico was so good and well-tailored, we want to do it again! The pre-trip admin is superb.

Just wanted to say a big thank for arranging our second trip with Travel Counsellors. Our Cornish cottage was very pretty, exactly to our specifications, showing that you were careful to listen to our requirements. This reflected the service we had from you on our visit to Crete last year, and so we feel very happy to recommend you to our friends and family.

Jill organised a fantastic holiday for us with Eurocamp at Berny Riviera. The accommodation was great and there was plenty of thing for the kids to do, lagoon, in and outdoor swimming pool and Crazy golf. Also plenty for me and the wife to enjoy. Let Jill book your holiday here!

I just wanted to say thank you for arranging our pre Xmas holiday with our two month old baby. Our accommodation was wonderful with views out to sea and the beach literally on our doorstep. We ended each night snug with the woodstove burning, which our two dogs loved. Thankyou once again for finding our winter family escape.

We have recently just booked a holiday to Crete with Jill, and we are thrilled to bits! The holiday is exactly what we wanted. Jill is very professional and knowledgeable regarding the travel industry. Jill took all the hassle and worry away from selecting and booking a holiday. She is very thorough, every last detail was thought of such as car hire to excursions. I liked the personal touch and there were no hidden fees compared with online websites. I will be booking all my trips be it pleasure or business with Jill in the future.

Thank you Jill for helping us arrange our family holiday to Egypt next month. I would recommend your services as you could not do enough for us - so many ideas, quotes and support to make sure we could book our perfect holiday. Before asking for your help we had got to the point where we about to give up hope that we could find a holiday to fit our many requirements and budget, but you found one for us! Thanks again and we will be looking to use your services again for our next holiday!

Having just booked our holiday to Portugal through Jill, I cannot recommend her highly enough. She provided us with a huge selection of holidays (I am very fussy) and always listened to what we were looking for. She could not do enough for me and provided information about the local area as well to help aid our decision. I would not hesitate in using Jill to book our future holidays as I know I will be in safe hands.
