Hi, My name is Margaret (Mags) Rae and it would be a privilege to be your Travel Counsellor.
I have worked in the travel industry for over 20 years now and love it! During this time I have visited some amazing places:
Australia, South Africa, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Miami, The Keys, San Francisco, Boston, Antigua, Barbados, Cuba, Bahamas, Grenada, Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Mauritius, Bali, China, Thailand, India, Paris, Pisa, Nice, Monte Carlo, Prague, Budapest, Istanbul, Barcelona, Menorca, Majorca, Ibiza, Costa Del Sol, Costa Blanca, Costa Dorada, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Egypt, Italy, Croatia, Turkey, Greece, Corsica, Tunisia and many more...
Ask me about any of these places and I can talk for hours - but don't get me started on cruising. You won't shut me up!
I am as passionate today about travel as I was the day I started. Working from home means that now I can spend 100% of my time on your enquiry. I take real pride in making sure you get the right holiday and ensuring that each and every one of my customers receive the highest level of customer service and the best choice for their travel arrangements. Leave your holiday requirements with me and I will do the hard work - no more days off wasted in the travel agents or endless hours searching the internet!
So, whether it be a city break, family holiday or a round-the-world itinerary, or maybe the most important holiday of your life - your honeymoon...give me a call or send me an email and let's get started!
Mags - Travel Counsellors, making your dreams into reality!
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:-

We would like to express our grateful thanks yet again to Mags and Travel Counsellors for another excellent holiday. The Hotel Excelsior in Venice Lido is superb and in a superb location.We were picked up at the airport by a private water taxi and taken across the lagoon to the hotel .This journey itself was quite amazing.Although the hotel is out of Venice itself they operated a complimentary half hourly water taxi to Venice from 8.00am till midnight. Our transfer pickup to Venice rail station to board the Orient Express was absolutely on time and for peace of mind the company had sent a confirmation email the previous day. The Orient Express itself is an outstanding experience which we thoroughly enjoyed -the food is exceptional. We had a superb holiday made all the better by the personal input from Mags who seems to have a great ability to tailor holidays precisely to the needs of her clients.The overall organisation of travel counsellors is such that there is never any concern about transfers not turning up or you not being met at an airport or station. We now look forward to our next holiday,organised by Mags .We regularly recommend Travel Counsellors to our friends and family. Margaret Ferguson

We are extremely pleased with the travel service Mags provides and would definitely recommend her to all. We've had many holidays arranged for us by Mags and she always delivers exactly what we are looking for and within the budget that we set. She's always at the end of a phone with help, advice and to sort any problems you may experience. We are going to Florida for the second time this year all arranged by Mags and I know it'll be amazing as usual. More of a personal touch travel agent I'd say.

Margaret has been a wonderful help to me over the last 6 years arranging business and pleasure trips around the world. There are two sayings I am a great believer in, 1, "if you want anything done right get the professional to deal with it", 2, "if the system works do not try to change it" so I will always speak to Margaret first about my proposed travel, for her professional advice, experience and arrangements, and it works.

Whenever we have booked holidays/flights through travel counsellors the service has always been first class. Margaret has always been very professional, kind and courteous. Nothing is too much for her, and she always returns our calls no matter how many times we have made contact. We have always been more than happy with her manner and her helpful advice. We will continue to use and highly recommend Travel Counsellors in the future. Michael and Christine Flynn

Margaret gave me excellent service recently when I was planning a trip to London. She managed to get us tickets for 'Mousetrap' on the Saturday night and my friend and I area really looking forward to that. Margaret was totally professional, efficient and friendly. She dealt with my request very promptly and saved me hours of trawling on the internet looking for the theatre tickets. I will have no hesitation in contacting Margaret again when I am planning a short trip or major holiday.

My first experience of a Travel Counsellor arranged vaccation was when Mags arranged my daughter's wedding in Cuba. A hurricane almost ruined the event but Mags came to our rescue, relocating the whole wedding party to another venue. She even secured accomodation for family who had not booked via Travel Counsellors. The service we received from Mags was second to none and she is our first port of call for all holidays now. In these uncertain times it is so comforting to know that your holiday is safe hands and if you have any issues or queries, she is at the end of the phone. Thanks Mags, keep up the good work.

Mags was the first and only Travel Counsellor that I have had the great pleasure in dealing with. I have found her a very happy and helpful expert. What Mags doesn't know, she will go to great lengths to find the best answer. She has never let me or any member of my family down. She keeps us updated in whatever is going on not only with our booking but also what new deals are available worldwide. I certainly, without doubt would not hesitate to use her services or expertise again and again. Mags is not only a Travel Counsellor to me and my family but a good friend.

We have booked our holidays through Mags for a number of years now, and have always been delighted with her approach to helping us. Not one question or special request has been met with negativity, nothing seems to be too much trouble to her. One of the main reasons why we will continue to utilise her services, is the vast knowledge she has on the destinations we have been interested in, and has been honest in imparting that information.

Booking a holiday and then counting down the days until you can set that ‘out of office’ on your work email account is one of the most exciting times of the year, isn’t it? We look forward to making those memories for so long. But how protected are you? And how much do you really know about it? Having the peace of mind that no matter what, your holiday is safe is priceless and it’s not something you can find everywhere. But the minefield of financial protection is not easily negotiated so we’re trying to make it clearer to help preserve...
