It's Nice To Meet You

Thank you for visiting my page. I’m Kate Self and I’m a Travel Counsellor based in Winchester, Hampshire. I’ve worked in the travel industry for over 16 years, starting out as an agent in a leading high street travel agency before joining Travel Counsellors.

I’ve been fortunate to visit many countries including: Australia, South Africa, North America, Canada, Jamaica, St Lucia, the Dominican Republic, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Borneo, Thailand, plus a host of destinations in Europe and closer to home. This travel experience enables me to offer you a world of personal knowledge and recommendations.

Being located close to Southampton, I’ve travelled by cruise ship to breath-taking destinations. I regularly take advantage of ship visits, so I can offer my clients considering cruise holidays first-hand knowledge of the ships and their itineraries.

All countries have their own history, diversity and culture which is what makes travel so enriching. Each trip becomes a personal discovery. Some of my most memorable experiences include walking hand-to-trunk with elephants in South Africa, cuddling koalas in Australia, being eye-to-eye with an orangutan in Borneo and standing at the foot of a glacier in the Norwegian Fjords.

Not only am I passionate about my job, I’m dedicated to it. I enjoy doing the research to give my clients competitive options with reliable suppliers coupled with a bespoke personal service. You’re my number one priority, so if you hit a snag on your travels or have a holiday hiccup, I’m on standby to smooth the way and get your vacation back on track.

I’m 100% independent with access to hundreds of suppliers and an array of cruise liners, so whether you’re planning a long-haul holiday, honeymoon, ocean or river cruise, a winter ski trip, a short UK break or a relaxing ‘get-away-from-it-all’ beach vacation; I’m here to help you find the holiday that’s tailored to your needs. Once you’ve chosen your destination, I plan and make all the arrangements, so you don’t have to.

What’s important to me is finding you the holiday of your dreams and taking the stress and time out of the whole experience. We can meet when it’s convenient for you and there’s no consultation fee. Your holiday is fully-protected against supplier failure by ATOL and the Travel Counsellors Financial Trust.

I can also offer a bespoke approach to your business travel needs, whether it is a simple flight only or accommodation, car hire, airport parking and transfers, I can arrange it all and being there when you need me with the support of our 24hr emergency assistance team, so don't just think holidays let me be your business travel assist giving you more time to focus on your business too.

So why not give me a call and turn your travel dreams whether they be leisure or for business into a reality?
