It's Nice To Meet You


Hi, I’m John - Welcome!

Based on the West Coast of Scotland, I joined Travel Counsellors in 2006 and have built a solid business established on the foundation of looking after and caring for my clients, most of whom have become friends.

Over the years, I’ve gained an extensive worldwide travel knowledge, especially in Australia, working with Tourism Australia and my details can be found on the Australia.com website. I also travel to Australia regularly to keep my knowledge and contacts up to date. However, I don’t just sell Australia and New Zealand! I take pride in creating the perfect itinerary for my customers no matter where they want to travel to, whether it is a Mediterranean beach or cruise, a walking holiday, road trip, sporting holiday or anything else. The majority of clients come back regularly and use me for all types of travel, and then go onto recommend me to others. It is something I am very proud of.

With 19 years’ experience, I specialise in tailor made holidays, but I am also fully experienced in Corporate travel and look after my business clients to the same level as I do my leisure ones. I am able to offer exclusive negotiated airfares and hotels worldwide as well as everything from meetings and events to incentives. Please click on my corporate website for more information.

The arrival of COVID in early 2020 has made it a very difficult year for everyone, not least the Travel Industry. Throughout the year I have been open for business, looking after my clients and some of my testimonials reflect this. I strongly believe we will all travel safely again in 2021 and that now is the time to dream of those trips that we will take.

My clients/friends are at the heart of everything I do. My sole purpose is to create fantastic lifelong memories that you will carry with you as the years pass and hopefully I can help you add to them as you go.

Travel broadens the mind – it makes us better people and is good for our wellbeing. This remarkable world is our stage, so no matter how you do it, go out and experience it.
