Jodie is amazing, I just tell her what It is our family would like to do and she puts it all together and makes it completely hassle free. Jodie then books everything and checks us in leaving our family to just be able to enjoy our holiday without the stress!

We wanted a holiday with the wow factor to celebrate a special birthday and 40th Wedding Anniversary. Jodie has been amazing in finding us the perfect package - way beyond what we could have imagined. Thank you

I used Jodie for the first time this year. She came recommended to me by someone who travels a fair amount, so I was happy to act on that recommendation. Jodie was professional, friendly, helpful and very efficient from the very start. She remained in contact throughout, even regularly checking and texting the weather to assure us our flight was going ahead (bad snow in the UK when we were flying out). She continued to keep in touch whilst we were on our trip, to ensure all was good. Her service is exemplary and I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. I have passed her name on to a few of my friends. Jodie deserves to do very well; she goes above and beyond any travel consultant I have used historically. I wont hesitate to use her again.

Jodie arranged my sisters' honeymoon for her a few years ago, therefore she recommended me to Jodie to arrange my honeymoon. Both me and my fiancé can clearly see why Jodie comes highly recommended as she takes the time to look through all options, even if we changed our minds a few times! Jodie has been a real pleasure and a great help for assisting us in to what we hope to be the best holiday of our lives.

I cannot recommend Jodie highly enough! Nothing was too much trouble - even when one of our party had to fly onto a separate destination.

I would always recommend booking travel arrangements with Jodie. Not only did Jodie find me an unbeatable price for our dream holiday to Disneyworld, Florida she was able to make sure we understood all that was available to make sure we took advantage of all that we wanted to.
The stress was taken out of the whole trip, both booking it and whilst there from luggage labels to travel arrangements to the most enjoyable trip away.
Jodie never "sold" to me, she took our requests & learnt about us as a family to recommend things to take advantage of.
I will always book via Jodie in the future.
Thank you Jodie, Laura Hern & family xxx

We already recommend Jodie as she is a thorough professional, but always adds a personal touch that makes our holidays so special. Jodie is also very honest and never promises anything that she can't deliver. My wife and I have had the best holidays and experiences all booked through Jodie. Thank you.
Sent by Muhammad Miah
Jodie was a life saver in getting a honeymoon package sorted in short notice. I would not have enjoyed it as much as I did if it wasn't for Jodie. She was always there and gave quick responses to any queries. She altered our package that best suited me and my wife. She was kind and polite every time we spoke and patient as I can be a handful. I will definitely recommend her and Travel Counsellors to friends and family. Thank you Jodie, for everything. Looking forward to speaking to her again to book our next holiday. :)

Jodie is an absolutely fantastic lady to help you with your holiday...nothing is too much trouble. We went to Cuba late last year with a group of friends, to celebrate a wedding. Jodie worked tirelessly to answer all our questions and even took the time out to respond to an email late evening of the day prior to travel, due to a change in my requirements. There are little additional touches too, which were so unexpected: luggage labels / travel visas - all details had been completed before being sent out to us - this is exceptional! Thank you so much and we will be booking with you in the future, and have also passed your business details on to friends, as a recommendation.
Sent by Mike Young
You done us really proud for our trip to Cuba, nothing was too much trouble for you, even though we changed our minds on the itinerary a few times, would have no hesitation on recommending your services to anyone. Will be back to book Far East this year, many thanks Jodie.

Jodie took care of all the details for us to make it a total no hassle booking/holiday even down to completing our luggage tags. Excellent service, would not hesitate to use Jodie again.

I booked a holiday with Jodie to Lapland December 2014. From start to finish the service was very personal, Jodie was helpful, responded to all my emails instantly with any query I had, as the holiday had been booked well in advance of departure I had forgot a few things! At the start of an idea Jodie saved me the trouble of searching the travel companies for the best deal for what we wanted to do, and she came up with options to help us make the right decision.
Nothing was too much trouble , service with a smile and the personal touch of writing a letter to our daughter from santa was absolutely fantastic, she was so excited to receive it.
All the hassle like doing the luggage labels was done for us, so no stress at all I would definitely book again and recommend your service.
We had a fantastic holiday, the resort was as you said and although we said once in a life time trip we might have to go again sometime!
Sent by Amanda Greaves
Once again, Jodie you delivered an outstanding service. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. I was constantly sending emails, upto the last minute, asking questions and asking advice. Every email you responded promptly. You're a true asset to Travel Counsellors.

We recently booked a holiday with Jodie Jinks and we were delighted with the service we received. Not only did it take the stress out of booking a holiday, it gave us confidence knowing our destination was recommended and selected to meet our exact needs. We had a fantastic holiday and felt that there was someone to contact should we need anything. I would definitely recommend Jodie and will be booking with her again.

Jodie has been just great. Extremely helpful and patient as we went around in circles deciding where we wanted to go and really tried hard to find us the best flight and accommodation prices to allow us to have our dream honeymoon. Can't wait to go now!

I wanted to take my daughter to NYC for her 21st birthday and was given Jodie's name on recommendation by my hairdresser. I was not disappointed! Jodie took time to understand exactly what we wanted out of our trip and what kind of 21 year old she was dealing with! She booked the perfect hotel in a fabulous spot near to everything we wanted to do. The flights she booked were at perfect times for us - Jodie liaised with me throughout the whole period making sure I was happy with the arrangements. She went the extra mile by booking helicopter flights and Broadway theatre tickets for us leaving it all very stress-free for me! Jodie followed up by phoning once we got back to check everything had gone well and that there was nothing she could have done better (there wasn't!). Little touches like receiving a postcard when we got back saying she hoped we had a good time were very much appreciated. I will definitely be booking with Jodie again - her easy manner and attention to details make the holiday a great experience from day one!

Jodie has helped my partner and I look for a range of different holidays, from weekend breaks in Europe to long haul luxury trips. Having Jodie on board has really helped to take the stress out of looking for the right holiday. She always responds promptly with concise and specific information. We would highly recommend her services.
Sent by Julie & Peter Foley
Jodie has been fantastic when arranging any of our holidays. We have been really fortunate to experience her professional and organised approach from organising a short break, to a honeymoon to a cruise. We have found her extremely helpful and always gives us advice on the best options for our holiday. She always gives us time making us feel like valued customers. It is the personal touches e.g. welcome back postcards, anniversary cards etc that make the difference. We have recommended Jodie to many of our friends and we look forward to our next holiday booking! We thank you Jodie for giving us fabulous holiday memories to last a lifetime!

Sarah and I would like to say a BIG thank you to Jodie for capping off a wonderful wedding celebration. With so much to arrange for the wedding itself, it was a blessing to have Jodie helping us with the honeymoon.

We were exceptionally pleased with the professional and personal service that Jodie has provided to us for our trips to Bulgaria and the Gambia.
The little extras, like completing our luggage labels for us, mark her apart from the usual service you get from our other agents. Keep up the good work!

Jodie planned and booked what was a very special honeymoon for my Bride and I. Staying in two different locations added variety and Jodie arranged all the transfers between destinations before hand, resulting in a perfect, hassle free honeymoon.
Sent by Claire Corry
The service we received from Jodie at Travel Counsellors was first class, we were very indecisive about where to go and she listened to our ideas and suggested many suitable options within our budget. In the end, with alot of good advice and many an email from Jodie, we decided on Mexico and New York. We could not have asked for a better service, we lead very busy lives and it meant we could concentrate on organising other parts of the wedding whilst Jodie sorted the Honeymoon for us! I think the personal touch is one of the things that makes the service unique to other big companies. The cards, emails and phonecalls make all the difference and we are already telling all our friends all about it!! We can't wait for the Honeymoon, we know Jodie will make it very special for us...."

We have used Jodie now to book two holidays for us and the level of professionalism and detail that was involved in the organisation was outstanding.
We booked a villa holiday in Spain, with cars and also a week holiday in the UK in a lodge and both were perfectly matched to the needs of the group (lots to do for kids etc.).
I would definitely recommend Jodie and Travel Counsellors.

Just like to say thanks Jodie for sorting out all our holidays! You have been great and dealt with everything right down to airport parking which I keep forgetting about!
