New York City
I’m Kerensa - based in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire. I live there with my husband Mark and 3 kids aged 16, 14 and 11 and not forgetting the dog - we like keeping busy!
Before becoming a Travel Counsellor I worked for over 15 years in the city on a busy trading floor for a big American investment bank selling Fixed Income products. It was a fantastic, thrilling, competitive and demanding job but not very family friendly. On the upside I did travel extensively for work and pleasure so that’s when I realised I had a great existing skill set, a perfect foundation for a new role in travel - something I'm very passionate about. Friends and family have sought my holiday advice for years knowing I do that extensive, in-depth research, demand high quality, value, and know just how important holidays are!
Years of experience in booking my own family holidays, knowing exactly how much work is needed to ensure it meets everyone’s requirements and in depth training and constant support from Travel Counsellors have given me my dream job! The kids often debate which holiday has been their favourite - they’ve loved them all! We’ve had many luxury holidays in Dubai, Oman, Maldives and Abu Dhabi and had equally amazing experiences, making memories travelling extensively in Europe and travel annually to Greece (as my father is Greek) so that country is dear to me. Whilst luxury has its place it’s also nice to flavour the culture and the authenticity of a country too.
In 2016 we had a fantastic 40 day road trip driving to Greece with the 3 kids and the dog - all in the name of research! 12 countries and highlights included Reims, Champagne tasting, Lake Konstanz, Portoroz, Slovenia, Rovinj, Croatia, Venice, then Nafplion, and Pelion in Greece to name a few. 2018 has been another busy year for me and it's great to see so many lovely repeat clients, along with referrals and new social media clients too.
One of the best things about being a Travel Counsellor is my major passion is now my job! I’m available throughout the day and evenings - even if I’m not at my desk I will always respond quickly so I can help you start making your exciting holiday plans without delay! Competitive prices, with first class service!

The service was wholly personal and understanding of particular circumstances. This included follow up assistance after i had booked - which is unusual and very well received.

Amazing service. Kerensa was available 24 hours a day when we were trying to get the details sorted and was incredibly patient with all our changes. She has continued to stay in touch and provide extra ideas and information. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to book a great holiday without any hassle.

Had a fab time at the Belle Plagne Club Med - lessons and instructions were excellent, and the food was amazing and all the alcohol was included in the price. Kerensa had guided us through all the ski supplier options and she chose the perfect resort for our needs. I would happily go back to the same resort next year, but also like the look of the new Club Med resort - and definitely using Kerensa again - she made everything, easy and seemless at no extra cost!!!

You may think it’s a mad idea but you are very wrong! You'd actually be mad not to try this ! Barbados is one of my favourite destinations. It has so much to offer - fabulous weather pretty much most of the year, although traditionally it’s a great winter sun destination. As it’s tropical the weather is great all year round and those tropical showers are bearable in the out of peak times. It's a great family destination but for this blog I'm going to focus on why you need to think about Barbados instead of New York...

Dubai May Half Term We've not long come back from an amazing week with family and friends in Dubai and I cant recommend it highly enough! Ok it was quite warm for my pasty husband and my fair skinned kids but we were armed with sunsuits and factor 50 so managed that bit. The hotel helped too easing the pressure of the 40 degrees heat and wall-to-wall sunshine by chilling the pools, coming round with cold scented towels, and spraying chilled water on you whilst cooking on the beach......the service in Dubai is another level, when you ask for 5 star...
