Hi, my name is Maria and I am based in Suffolk. Welcome to my web site and I look forward to discussing your travel plans with you.
Being a Travel Counsellor allows me the flexibility to serve clients nationwide. So wherever you are based I can accommodate your needs. I am available anytime of the day and weekends not just 9-5 Mon-Fri.
Travel is my passion and has been since my very first trip to Halkidiki, Greece many years ago. I combine my passion and love of travel along with over twenty years of customer service experience to provide each and every client the personal, friendly and professional service they deserve.
Having travelled to many destinations including Australia, Egypt, Cyprus and the Greek Islands to name but a few I have had first-hand experience of holidays as a family with children at many all-inclusive resorts to adults only staying at a special boutique hotel or going for a city break, be it home or away.
My wish list destinations include Hawaii, America, Mauritius and Rome and I can't wait to visit these places. Whether you are looking for that exceptional destination for a wedding or anniversary, a family holiday, a precious alone time break, Kenyan Safari or a special tailor-made adventure, I will be here to help. I can even arrange your business travel.
Using cutting edge technology and up to the minute resources I am able to offer a level of choice and service that cannot be found on the high street. I pride myself on treating every enquiry as if it was my own, paying extreme attention to every detail and need of my clients whether it is for pleasure or business.
I appreciate your time is precious and therefore I will be here from your very first enquiry right through until long after you have returned, assisting you at every stage so that you can relax in the knowledge that you are in safe hands. Should you encounter any unforeseen problems whilst you are away you are able to contact me direct to assist. I will do all the searching and work for you so you don't have to.
We have the best financial protection in the industry and therefore whatever travel arrangements you book with me are completely protected from supplier failure by our unique Financial Trust. No ifs or buts.
I hope you have enjoyed reading my page and I can't wait to hear from you with your exciting travel arrangements knowing that with me it really is personal.
I look forward to speaking to you

Maria was extremely helpful and from first contacting her about my thoughts on a holiday to booking it was made very easy and all my questions were answered.

Fantastic service. Listened to my needs and didn't try to "package" my request to fit a solution, but found a solution to fit my needs. Brilliant.

My husband and I have just returned from the most amazing road trip holiday through California, which Maria helped us to plan and book. We stayed in seven different destinations and everything just worked liked clockwork, thanks to Maria’s fantastic organisation. She has been incredibly patient, supportive, ressourceful and didn’t miss a trick whilst planning our holiday. Her personal little travel gift was a lovely little touch too. I can’t recommend Maria highly enough.

I can't speak highly enough or thank Maria Moslin-Thomas enough for the service she'e given us, We booked very late in the day and changed our minds repeatedly, so her patience was greatly appreciated. The holiday itself was great and all the extras, card and goodies to take with us, booking us in for flights was all super useful. I'll recommend her to everyone and will use TC again. Thank you.

Maria has been the most patient and dedicated travel consultant I could wish for. She has been incredibly helpful and used all the resources and assistance she could get in order to help us find the perfect accommodation for our road trip holiday in California. Lovely service.

What can I say? This was a truly memorable holiday and one that I will remember for many years to come. The trip to Sri Lanka was absolutely wonderful. This could not have happened had it not been for your hard work in being able to accommodate some of the changes we were asking regarding the itinerary. Working with you was so easy and you instilled confidence in the four of us in the Sri Lanka Holiday party. What impressed us most of all was the fact that we could contact you any time of the day knowing that you would get back to us with answers very quickly, or if you needed a little more time to get the answers you would also keep us informed via e-mail communication. I have never used a Travel Counsellor for a main holiday before, but the way you expedited the whole process in the minute details such as ensuring that we sat next to each other on the flight journeys and the useful information for getting our visas made this trip a hassle free experience. Ensuring all the good background detail was carried out then gave us a really smooth enjoyable and happy holiday with no worries whatsoever. The idea of providing a first class tour guide was ingenious and from the start of the holiday to the parting of our ways in Doha, we could not thank you enough. A memorable experience both in terms of an excellent holiday and also working with such a professional Travel Counsellor. We will be recommending you to our friends and family and hope to utilise your expertise in the future, Kind Regards and once again thanks for your organisation and planning of our holiday in Sri Lanka.

We don't normally give 10's out but in Maria's case we have because we couldn't fault her enthusiasm, she worked very hard to get us the holiday we were looking for, her attention to detail was very good and her outgoing personality was quite infectious. We are looking forward to our trip which we are sure will be everything we hope it will be.

Arriving at Atlantis we were greeted by various staff offering a warm welcome. Walking into the reception area it becomes apparent how big the Atlantis is. Check in ran very smoothly and is well appointed. We booked a Deluxe Guest Room. It was beautifully decorated with a lovely bathroom that had doors that opened into the room, should you wish to have a bath with a view! We had a small balcony which was big enough to sit out in the evening with a table and chairs. We made our way downstairs to decide which of the 23 restaurants we wanted...

We arrived on our Emirates flight on an early April evening and once we had picked up our bags and got through arrivals we were greeted by the wonderful warm temperature. The airport is about 20 minutes from our hotel. We stayed in a one bedroomed suite at the Villa Rotana, on the Sheikh Zayed Road. It is about a 15 minute pleasant walk to the Dubai Mall. Most of the walk is inside so it is even walkable at the height of the summer season. There are so many lovely properties to stay at in down town Dubai but if...

I was lucky enough to be part of the inaugural celebrations for the launch of P&O's newest ship Britannia, and she is a beauty. Britannia is the largest ship in P&O's fleet. She has a 94 metres Union Flag on her bow, so she will be easily recognised. The ship has 1,837 cabins including 64 suites. For the first time on a P&O Cruises ship, all outside cabins have balconies. I stayed in a double cabin which was very comfortable with plenty of room and a lovely little balcony with a table and chairs. Stepping aboard was an absolute delight and the...

I spent a few days in Doha and even in February the weather was glorious. Being able to go out in summer clothes at that time of year is refreshing. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing break and a change from the norm Qatar could be for you. As we drove into Doha the first thing I noticed was how every building was designed differently, no two seemed to be the same. The architecture is amazing and at night they light up, it's fantastic to see. It is very modern and rapidly increasing in size. Doha is also very...

Where do I start? I have wanted to visit New York for as long as I can remember. Was it everything I had hoped for? Yes and more! I love this this city. It is so energetic even on the coldest, snowiest days in January. I had always wanted to visit in winter because it was a dream of mine to be in New York when it snowed and boy did it snow. So much so that my flight was delayed and I had to stay an extra day. I travelled with my mum for a girls break and she blamed me...

This is my third holiday to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. I travelled with my two children and my mum. On our descent we look out of the window to the familiar sight of baron land dotted with large complexes and hotels each with their beautiful pools. The coastline is met with the clear blue waters of the Red Sea. We are staying at the Maritim Jolie Ville Royal Peninsular. The reception area is a single store building of its own. The complex is large with a huge pool in the centre and views of the mountains as a back drop from one...

Another fun packed trip to Disneyland Paris. This is the 4th time we have been here. I always travel by Eurostar as it is just so easy and direct. We stay at a hotel the night before near the to the station for ease in the morning. This time I travelled with my two children who are 15 and 11 and my mum. This was my mums first visit and she loved it so it just proves that there really is something for everyone and as I always say, you are never too old for Disney! We stayed at the Sequoia...
