Hi, I am Lucie Mellodew a Travel Counsellor based in Andover, Hampshire.
I worked in the travel industry for 15 years before taking a career break to raise my three children. I'm now wanting to share the wealth of knowledge and experience that I’ve gained over the years in an industry that I love.
I began my career in the leisure sector, creating tailor-made itineraries and booking package holidays for clients then moved into business travel looking after various blue chip companies. My last 7 years in the industry was in the highly demanding entertainment travel sector in London working at EMI and Universal Music.
With so much choice available these days, I can take the stress out of searching for the perfect getaway for you and your travel party. I pride myself on my exceptional levels of customer service, nothing is too much trouble and I will go out of my way to ensure every aspect of your travel experience is perfect.
For me it’s all about creating the experience be it a cruise, safari, a honeymoon, city breaks, sports/school tours, ski holidays, beach holidays, villa rental, independent travellers, twin (and multi) centre holidays or all inclusive packages. I also have experience with tailor made luxury travel needs including airport lounges, yacht charter & private plane charter. I can also take care of all of those all important extras i.e. valet parking, transfers, show tickets, travel insurance, car hire etc.
With our award winning systems and technology you have instant access to every aspect of your trip including real-time flight status information, accommodation details and your entire itinerary documentation accessible on our easy to use smartphone App.
During my career I've been fortunate enough to travel to some amazing destinations all over the world. Highlights being the Golden Triangle in India and a ten day trip around the world visiting Hong Kong, Auckland and Los Angeles. Weekend breaks to Tokyo and Shanghai plus trips to South Africa, Goa, Kerala, Jamaica, Barbados, Mexico and various city breaks throughout Europe. I've also enjoyed numerous ski holidays in Austria and France.

Lucie is spot on when it comes to travel. We wouldnt use anyone else. Her customer service and attention to detail is excellent. She is informative and really understands the brief. I would recommend Lucie to anyone looking for their next holiday.

“I’m so pleased we booked our big USA family trip with Lucie. She was so helpful, making sure the holiday included everything we wanted at a budget we could afford. We were not sure of the best itinerary and Lucie worked hard to get it right for us, offering lots of advice and solutions. When one leg of our trip had to change due to fire in Yosemite, I was SO pleased we had booked with Lucie as she took away all the hassle. She reassured us not to worry and sorted out alternative accommodation for us really quickly which was brilliant. We will definitely use Lucie and TC again!”

Lucie is very helpful and nothing is a problem. Has helped us out recently with transfers which another travel agent we had booked with wasn’t helpful. Booked with them before we started using Lucie .Won’t be going back to them again!

We have been delighted with the service Lucie has provided us with as our travel consultant. She is incredibly professional and dedicated . Lucie put together our bespoke itinerary for our holiday in Croatia this summer . We wanted a two centre vacation with numerous transfers and ferry crossings to be navigated. Lucie’s expertise gave us a worry free holiday knowing all the transfers and hotels had been organised , down to booking kids clubs. It all ran very smoothly with highly professional ground handling agents providing the transfers, all sourced by Lucie. It also gave us peace of mind ,during what could have been an unpredictable summer to travel , that if we had faced cancellations Lucie was on had to sort it all out . I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lucie and look forward to booking our next holiday with her .

Lucie was extremely helpful in booking our flights and connections to Australia on short notice. Lucie went above and beyond securing the flights we needed as quickly as possible. I tired to navigate the flights myself and found it so incredibly stressful, Lucie made everything stress free and I am so grateful to her. I will most definitely use Lucie in our future holiday plans. It's also so reassuring to have someone you can speak with about any uncertainties when traveling. Thank you Lucie!

I have used Lucie Mellodew for my last two holidays and I will definitely be using her again. Lucie provided a thorough holiday search service, then handled all the booking arrangements and followed up with all the information I needed and a checklist for me before departure. She really does take all the hassle out of booking a holiday and I would absolutely recommend her.

Lucie was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and excursions we wanted to do, she listened to our requirements and put together an amazing itinerary for our winter holiday. A huge thank you Lucie, cant wait for our break now.

I recently used Lucie to book a weekend away in the UK. I already knew the hotel we wanted to stay at and Lucie secured us a great deal for dinner, bed and breakfast.
The MyTC app is good, keeping all the holiday details in one place and enabling us to pay our deposit and instalments at the click of a button, as well as counting down to our mini-break! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lucie, and will most certainly be using her to organise our future travel arrangements.

Lucie was so helpful from the start of planning our Far East trip right the way through to obtaining a refund for us due to COVID cancellations. She took the stress out of the whole process and found great deals on flights, a hotel that was exactly what we were looking for and managed to do all of it within our budget. When the pandemic started affecting flights, Lucie got in touch straightaway to let us know what was happening and what we could expect for our holiday plans. Our flights were quite far off, but Lucie kept us updated throughout and when we were finally able to cancel Lucie handled all of it quickly and efficiently. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lucie for anyone looking to book a holiday, even if you normally make all the arrangements yourself, like we normally do. It was such a relief to have her expert advice during this challenging year.

Lucie found us a great deal on our upcoming trip to Canada and dealt with our enquiry in a speedy and efficient manner.

Highly recommended. What a great experience. We have been looking for a quick get away to Spain. Decided to contact Lucie and she did not disappoint. From beginning to end Lucie provided a 5 star experience. We changed our minds a few times on our hotel choice and Lucie was nothing but patient and gave us a few suggestions which benefited us massively, a lot of travel agents tend to loose it with you after a while if you chop and change but Lucie was more than happy to help in any way. The APP available is very user friendly. All in all one of the best experiences we have had with any travel agent. We will definitely return to Lucie for our next adventure at the end of the year. Thank you Lucie. Keep up the great work!!
