Hi, my name is Linda and, for the last 25 years, I have been providing my clients with specialist advice and planning holidays they will never forget. My clients come back again and again because they value the personal service, attention to detail and the hassle-free experience I provide them with every time they have a trip to arrange.
I am not sitting in a call centre answering call after call, booking a flight or holiday, then moving onto the next one. I am sitting in my own office, waiting to chat to you and discuss exactly the kind of holiday you like. Whether it is a week in Europe or a much longed for holiday further afield.
I work with trusted providers across the industry to give my customers the choice they want, a personal bespoke service based on taking the time to get to know them and their needs and then applying the attention to detail to make sure everything goes without a hitch.
I combine my decades of experience in the travel industry (with the qualifications to match) and my own knowledge of travelling ensuring my customer gets the best deal.
I am at the end of the phone should you have a problem whilst you are away, so you have peace of mind, knowing I am available at any time.
You could book all the elements yourself - but if you don’t want to spend hours on the internet, phone or in the travel agents and you want the reassurance of total financial protection. Why not try giving me a call about your next trip? Call me on 01753 202920 and let me take away the pain of planning and the risk of getting it wrong.
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:-

What can we say about Lin that we haven't already said? We would be totally lost without her She always goes out of her way to make sure we are happy. Long may she continue! We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her, which we have.

My wife and I are most fortunate in being able to utilise the services of Linda for all of our travel requirements , whether large or small . She very happily deals with all our queries , however minor , but in particular are most appreciative when we are seeking to alter an existing air line package to an original deal. We have already recommended various of our "travelling friends" to her .

I’ve already recommended Lin to my friends and I know of at least two that use Lin for booking their holidays. Lin is extremely patient suggesting lots of alternatives but never pushes you in making a decision.

We have been using Travel Counsellors (Lin Chisholme) for approximately 20 years. They always meet our criteria what ever we are looking for. We receive all our documents and just arrive at our destination with a private transfer and do not have to worry about anything other than turning up on time at the airport. We have a contact number in the UK if we have any emergencies Travel Counsellors are at the end of the phone.

Lin is always happy to help find the best deal and a holiday that suits. She answers enquiries quickly and is very knowledgeable. I wouldn't book a holiday without checking in with Lin!

I haven't been on my trip yet, but Lin has been fabulous with my plans so far. I think she should be called a travel Angel, not just a Counsellor.

I like to be able to talk to someone that has experienced the places that I like to go or at least has access to people that can suggest the best locations, hotels etc for our needs. Linda makes suggestions about our trips when I haven't thought of things to do or include and considers our best options with flights and other travel connections. I feel this is a truly personal service and adds great value to our holiday experience.

Linda was brilliant. She asked what we wanted and our budget and immediately started working on our dream holiday to South Africa. She did far better than we could have done alone or with a travel agent because she knows the area and all the lovely places to go that many others may not. Our final itinerary was far better than we could have imagined and well on budget. Now we can’t wait for our South African Pride adventure. Thank you Linda.

If i could give Linda 20 out of 10 I would. Linda is there for you, every step of the way and will point out others mistakes, if I have had a quote fro elsewhere. She is a true professional who knows her job and is friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. She is also a good laugh. Thanks Lin

Excellent service from Linda. I love going on holiday, but getting my act together to trot round travel agents or scrolling down endless holiday sites is not what I have time for. I ring Linda and say I fancy this idea and she comes up with some lovely ideas, prices and options, and its all taken care of we just go.

We have had years of " beyond the normal call of duty" from Linda and have placed all but one of our holidays with her over the last ( don't ask) years . I think that the other agency in that case made a loss and even Lin said cannot match it do it. This was the only time we went purely on price. if you want friendly , efficient , service Linda is the person. If ( very rarely) something is not feasible for her she will tell you and do her best to find an alternative.

After a hectic trip round Sri Lanka, a week in the Maldives is the perfect combination. Only an hours flight from Colombo to Male and the tiny airport is right by the ferry port. We did not have long to wait before we were escorted to our ferry for our 55-minute trip to Meeru Island in the North Ari Atol. We chose this island as we felt it was a perfect size. Not too small where we might get bored, and not to big where we could not experience a true Maldivian Island. It has 284 rooms, ranging from the...

I have been selling the island of Sri Lanka for about 25 years now, and finally decided to visit myself. I am so glad I did, what a wonderful country! We decided to tour with a private car and driver as I am not good on coaches. Our driver met us at Colombo airport and drove us to Bentota, about two hours’ drive away for an overnight stop. This was purely to break the journey down to Yala NP. We stayed at Centara Ceysands Bentota. This is quite a unique hotel as the reception area is on the mainland and then...

I recently enjoyed a trip to Gran Canaria, an island I have never visited. We flew out to Gran Canaria, where the journey from the airport to our hotel in Maspalomas took about 25 minutes. We stayed at the Seaside Hotel Palm Beach. This is a 5* hotel between Maspalomas and Melonaras . It is in an excellent location, right on a promenade where you can walk to the town. There is a large choice of bars and restaurants. All rooms either look over the pool or the sea and the rooms themselves are quite large with walk in showers...

I am sure most of us have a 'Bucket List' and on mine was a trip to see the Northern Lights. As this year was supposed to be one of the best years to actually see this phenomenon, my husband and I decided it was now or never. There are many ways to view the Lights, most people opt for a cruise, but I wanted to make sure that we had the very best opportunity to see them so decided on a land based trip for a week. This was a fully organised package with flights, accommodation, food and various trips....

As it was a 'special' birthday for me this year, I wanted to do something memorable. After a great deal of discussion with my husband, it was agreed that we would do an Alaskan Cruise. I can honestly say it was an amazing experience. We flew to Seattle for an overnight stay. We chose Celebrity Millenium, as this was giving us the dates we wanted and I had cruised on her before, so knew the ship and loved it. The following day we flew to Anchorage and went by coach down to Seward to board the ship. It was...

Western Canada, and the Rockies in particular is one of my favourite destinations. To celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary I planned a self drive trip across from Calgary to Vancouver Island. We had been before, so I planned a slightly different route this time. One place I did not want to miss though was Lake Louise. The pictures you see of this beautiful place do not do it justice. Just to sit in front of the Chateau Lake Louise, gazing at the lake itself is so calming. It changes before your very eyes. If you can afford to stay here...

I had always wanted to travel to Malaysia, and when some very good friends of ours mentioned they also wanted to go, that was enough for me to make the decision and not to put it off any longer. We travelled from Heathrow to Kuala Lumpar and from there took a connecting flight to Langkawi. We decided that this was going to be a twin centre and we would have a week in Langkawi and a week in Borneo. With my love of wildlife, this was a must as I had always wanted to see the Orang Utans. The end of April...
