Hi, I’m Jill and a Travel Counsellor based in the Newcastle Upon Tyne and would love to help you with your travel plans.
My passion for travel started with my around the world gap year after university, experiencing new cultures, cuisines and scenery, I was hooked!
Since my gap year I have been lucky enough to travel through Asia, cruise through the South Pacific and wine and dine my way through Europe (a lot of wine and cheese!). As well as travelling the world extensively I have lived in Australia for 2 years and more recently, New Zealand for 10 years before heading back to my roots in the UK. There’s no better feeling than travelling to me, it is a huge passion and I love sharing my passion when curating a dream trip perfect for each individual so they have memories that last forever.
Now, with Travel Counsellors I have access to amazing deals, unique packages, award winning technology and can be available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I have over 10 years’ experience in the travel and tourism industry achieving a diploma in travel, tourism and aviation, running my own travel agency and team and winning a global company award. I have curated trips from small low budget backpacker adventures to designing bespoke detail focused itineraries for celebrities and royalty.
With my personal travel knowledge, I will always go that extra mile for you, recommending that secret local hidden restaurant, the best time to visit a tourist hotspot to avoid the crowds or that off the beaten track hike that guarantees fabulous views.
Life is not a rehearsal so bungy in New Zealand, Heli over the Grand Canyon, cruise the fiords, or just take that much needed beach break…….I’d love to help you make it happen!
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:-

My husband and I are currently on a 6 week “megamoon” in Australia and New Zealand. Jill has been fantastic in the lead up to our trip, helping us to plan our route including places to see, places to eat and things to do. Having someone like Jill who knows New Zealand inside out is invaluable - she is able to provide personalised suggestions based on what we like and her insight is allowing us maximise every minute of our trip. Even as we are travelling now, Jill is always available to message, providing further recommendations as we stop in different places. We would be lost without her! We would thoroughly recommend Jill for all of your travel plans and bookings!
With independent access to thousands of travel suppliers around the world, I've got an eye for added value. Take a look through my latest selections below. But even if nothing particularly catches your eye - don't worry! Let's chat and I'll take the hassle away from tailoring a perfectly personalised holiday just for you.
