Hello my name is Leah. I'm based in Hale, Cheshire and I am committed to carefully planning your next trip to ensure it is tailored perfectly to your needs.
From a young age I’ve had a relentless passion for travel – my friends now call me Marco Polo and Judith Chalmers. I was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, one of the most isolated cities in the world, which is possibly why I have a personal mission to see every corner of the world. I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it is on the list.
I have travelled extensively throughout Australia, Asia, Europe, Middle East and North America. Now, as a Travel Counsellor, I can help everyone achieve their travel goals and provide a wealth of knowledge gained through my own travel experiences. Being truly independent I am not restricted to the deals I can provide. I have access to thousands of suppliers across the globe so there is something out there to suit every one of my customers all with the added bonus of 100% financial protection.
Anything from package holidays, flights, hotels, car hire, excursions, transfers, cruises, honeymoons – even planning a wedding abroad, whatever your travel needs are, I won’t rest until I’ve found the right deal for you. Let me take the hard work out of endless hours of research and price checking. Whatever you’re planning – a family holiday, a city break, your annual holiday or the once in a lifetime trip, by knowing your specific requirements I will give your holiday the same personal care and attention I would give my own trip.
The service does not end once your holiday is planned, booked and paid for. My commitment to customer service is my number one priority, especially if anything unexpected happens while you are travelling. I’ll always be here to help, because with me... it’s personal.
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer...
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

Top Cruise Trends in 2019 Have you ever thought about cruising or are you already hooked on cruising? It’s an easy way to experience so many places in very little time without unpacking multiple times! Did you know that the average age of a cruiser is now 56 years old? And around 2 million people from the UK will travel on an ocean cruise this year? Cruising offers great value for money, price and there always seems to be an offer on such as all inclusive, drinks packages, low deposits etc. So where are we all going? On average the 60+ year age group...

When you think of Australia, your impression may have come from Neighbours or Home and Away which is often quite close to real suburban life – but what lies beyond? Earlier this year I had the pleasure of acting as tour guide in my home town showing my friend all the delights on offer in Perth, Western Australia. Often overlooked in favour of the east coast, Perth can lay claim to the best weather in the country, a very relaxed easy going pace of life, stunning wildlife, spectacular beaches, romantic sunsets and a vibrant foodie scene. No trip to Australia would be...

Leah has been extremely helpful and has gone the extra mile to arrange our holiday in what has been very challenging circumstances for the travel industry. I would highly recommend her.

I booked through Leah to travel for 3 weeks solo around Antalya area, staying in 3 different hotels which Leah researched and booked for me. They were all excellent choices. I changed my plans twice meaning she had to rearrange my hotels and my fights (twice). I had some medical issues (not COVID) while I was away and again Leah dealt deftly with the special requirements for my return flight. I had an amazing time and I honestly could not have done it without Leah. I would highly recommend you retain her for your next holiday, especially in these uncertain times when you really need someone on your side who has all the connections at her fingertips and knows what she is doing. She was never more than a message away when needed and this was very reassuring in my case. Thank you again Leah! ??

Leah has been an excellent travel consultant booking flights and hotels to Australia for my boyfriend and I over Christmas and New Year!

Fast and friendly service. Rather than trawling through websites to find the best deal, this comes from someone who works to not only get you the best price, but also how enjoyable your vacation can be. I have a family, two tweenagers, with this in mind, Leah has found us something really central and fought for the best price too. Really happy and will use again and again.

Leah provides me with a fast, friendly and efficient travel booking service that I know I can 100% trust. This is very important to me, having been scammed this year by another travel consultant/company who have stolen tens of thousands from travellers over the past year. When targeted fraud is ever present, having Leah and Travel Counsellors at the end of the phone is very, very important and reassuring. I will always recommend both to family, friends and co-workers

Wow what an experience. From start to finish and even after finish you guys just keep delivering. I have NEVER been treated so well. I would recommend you to anyone. You certainly know your stuff as every place was just perfect in it's own way. Very, very impressed. The personal touches just made my day, thank you so very much.

You've done a lot of hard work to get where we are. It can't be easy organising a family holiday flying from different airport to coincide more or less at the destination. Well done Leah

After a fantastic experience working with Leah on our holiday, I have already recommended her to a work colleague who contacted her yesterday. We received a lovely card and Leah's business cards which are now in my purse and to hand to give to others which we intend to do. I think going forward this will be our preferred choice of booking our holidays

Leah went above and beyond expectations when planning a short notice trip for us and dealt with the Monarch collapse, swiftly booking new flights.
From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
