My name is Julie and I know it sounds like a cliché but I've spent the last 30 years helping people fulfil their dreams.
I've always loved travelling and am extremely passionate about ensuring I give the best possible customer service, I promise to look after you and your holiday as if it was my own and to care more than anyone else!.
I have many loyal customers who book with me, because they trust me to understand their needs, with no hard sell, just honest, friendly advice. I will personally look after you right from your first contact, until you arrive back home after having a wonderful time and ready to book again. Booking a holiday can be stressful, so let me take the stress and worry out of it for you, by doing all the research and planning, so all you have to do is relax and let me do all the hard work.
I can provide everything your high street travel agent can offer you and much more. I am totally independent and I can also use our award winning technology to uniquely package a holiday together at a competitive price just for you. All our holidays are 100% financially protected for total peace of mind. Why risk your cash, book with me and save valuable time, while also getting great value for money!
I was a high street travel manager for over 20 years and so can not only offer you a wealth of knowledge and experience, but also access to all the contacts I have built up over that time, to ensure I can action any special requests you may have and find out everything you need to know about each destination, to ensure I plan you a perfect trip.
During my career I have been lucky enough to travel to most corners of the globe. I've been on family package holidays to the Spanish Balearics and Canaries as well as Malta, Cyprus, Tunisia and Morocco to name a few. I have been on many city breaks and I have cruised with all the main cruise lines in both Europe and the Caribbean. I have also been fortunate enough to visit many long haul destinations including Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia, Goa and The Gambia. Egypt, Israel, Florida and West coast of USA, Canada and lots of Caribbean Islands. I've been to Mexico, Dubai, Sri Lanka and South Africa and Australia and New Zealand. I love organising weddings and honeymoons and I have also personally attended several overseas weddings. I arrange special celebration and bucket list holidays and of course tailor made trips and cruises.
I have also recently taken my mother abroad who is now totally dependent on a wheelchair following a stroke, so have experienced first hand how the assistance works through the airports and on the plane. Hopefully this would help me to be able to re assure anyone travelling with special requirements that may need extra help , by giving first have experience, tips and advice.
I would love to look after you for your special holiday, get to know you and build a trip around the things you love most!
I look forward to hearing from you.
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:-

I found Julie extremely helpful and very efficient, she involved us clearly in all the relevant decisions and made it an easy and pleasurable process; this could have been awful if we had tried to organise it ourselves. I will use Julie for any similar future trips.

Love using Julie. She doesn't make me feel like i'm being a pain when I clearly am. Have recommended her to 3 other people, one being my dad who has since booked many holidays with her, my friend has now booked her summer holiday and she's currently helping my boss with his family holiday. Will continue to use her for all future holidays.

This was our second family holiday to Madeira. As we loved it so much two years ago, we decided to return. We were not disappointed and still love the island and will definitely come back again as there is still so much to see. It is well known as a place for retired British and German visitors, but it is so much more than that and has loads to offer for families of all nationalities and adventure seekers too. The weather was amazing considering we were here for a week from 28 October, for the late school half term. It was between...

This holiday was my first travelling with a passenger in a wheelchair. The passenger was my mom who, following a severe stroke, is now only able to stand for a few minutes with support and is unable to take any steps. I booked her assistance throughout the whole journey and we also took her own wheelchair with us. The assistance team at Birmingham were great and you go through a special security lane to avoid the queues. There were a few of us travelling so we were able to push the wheelchair ourselves around the airport so they gave us a...

For a family holiday at Easter you cant beat Fuerteventura. This was our 7th visit to the island at this time of year and as always it didn't disappoint. Fabulous weather, friendly people, wonderful choice of hotels and resorts and all at a great price. This time, as our daughter is a bit older now at 10, we decided to do a two centre holiday, to try out Corralejo as well as our usual favourite resort of Caleta de Fuste. We also hired a car this time, to get out and about and went to the brilliant Acua water park and the...

I took my family on a very last-minute break to Kos at the start of the school holidays in July. I have visited many Greek islands before but have never been to Kos, so I was very excited to be going somewhere new in a country I loved. Kos did not disappoint. It was stunning. We stayed in a lovely little resort called Tigaki, on the North West coast of the island. It is around 40 minutes from the airport and has a gorgeous, soft, white sandy beach running along the whole of the resort for around 7km. It was...

If you are thinking of taking a cruise for the first time or maybe an experienced cruiser that is thinking about trying another line, hopefully the below guide will give you a small insight as to what each cruise line has to offer. P&O cruises have seven ships in their fleet: the newest being their flagship Britannia. They are known for offering guests Strictly Come Dancing at Sea and for their celebrity chef Food Heroes on-board ships. They offer the most cruises out of Southampton, including lots of mini cruises and world cruises that depart in January You would...

What can I say about Madeira. It is in essence an island of so many contrasts, so much natural beauty and so much variety and contrary to popular belief it is not just for the over 50’s. The landing into Funchal Airport is breath-taking with the lush Madeiran landscape stretched out to the left and the stunning blue Atlantic on the right. Upon landing, the first thing you notice is the pleasant warm Atlantic breeze upon your face, but for me not too warm for late July. So much better than the stifling heat in the Mediterranean at this time of year....

Continuing our adventure in Lapland... Day 7 and today is Christmas Eve. It is actually Christmas Day for the Finnish so everyone is very happy and relaxed and saying 'Hoover eyoluyu' to each other which is Merry Christmas in Finnish. We head out into the snow to play for a while and then treat ourselves to an afternoon in water world. Here there are lots of swimming pools and Jacuzzis. There are twinkly lights around the pool and lasers shining gnomes on the walls. One of the pools is filled with foam and we even go outside in the snow and...

From the moment we stepped on the plane, where the crew were all in Santa hats, you could feel the excitement. The children were entertained with a quiz and games and then invited to sing Christmas Carols with the crew in the aisles. On arrival the Ingham's reps were all in Santa hats too and made us feel welcome on the transfer coach,giving us a pack with all our information and excursion times. After a short transfer of just 20 minutes, we arrive at the village of Levi, our home for the next 8 nights. Everywhere is covered in...

Written by a customer whose wedding I organised in Paphos: If you’re thinking of going on holiday or getting married abroad then I would highly recommend Julie! From the first time we spoke about going to Cyprus for family holiday to the moment we came home and caught up about it, Julie was just fantastic. There were 21 of us and each person was taken care of wonderfully. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing she was, nothing too much trouble. Every little detail was thought of, arranged and taken care of by Julie. The amount of times I messaged asking so...

I have just been lucky enough to be invited on the 3 day launch on the worlds largest cruise ship!!! I have to say that Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas is the most amazing experience I have ever had on the sea. The ship is absolutely stunning and at 226963 tons, 18 decks high and the length of four football pitches she certainly has something to offer for everyone. From the Central Park deck with its gorgeous restaurants, pavement cafes and stunning shops, along with over 12,000 live plants and trees, to the kids zones where you can ride a merry go...

I was really excited to be one of the first people to get a look on board Britannia, the latest cruise ship from renowned cruising company P&O Cruises. Enjoying an exclusive VIP Gala overnight event, I was one of over 500 from Travel Counsellors to be invited on board for the official launch of Britannia, the biggest ship built for the British cruise market. The event was followed by the official naming ceremony of the ship, with Her Majesty The Queen, accompanied by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, naming the new P&O Cruises vessel.
