My name is Natasha Lawrence, I am an independent travel agent based in Worlingworth, Suffolk. I joined Travel Counsellors in November 2011 and prior to that I worked for Lunn Poly, Thomson Holidays, Travel Norwich Airport, KLM/Alitalia, Future Travel (Co-op), NQ Australian Rentals (Sydney) Branch Manager and Driveaway Holidays (Sydney). I have more than 20 years’ experience in the travel industry to date.
I have travelled extensively worldwide and have been very lucky to have lived overseas in Australia, Italy, Israel and Spain to name a few. I am passionate about travel and will always offer the best service possible.
Having lived and worked in Australia, I know the country extremely well. I have cruised around the Caribbean and backpacked in Indonesia and Thailand. I have worked in many areas of travel over the years, including Airlines, Overseas Tour Representatives, Retail Manager in Sydney, Australia. I have a City and Guilds qualification recognised by ABTA with a distinction in travel.
As I work from home, this means you have the flexibility to contact me by phone, email or social media. At times when most other agents are unavailable, including evenings and weekends, will never find yourself in a position where you can't get hold of somebody. Especially in times of emergency. If I am not available another Travel Counsellor will be or our 24/7 team are happy to help.
Our technology is second to none, and I can use my expertise to tailor-make exactly the right holiday to suit your needs. As well as offering a vast range of tour operator products, I can also search through hundreds of different flights; accommodation and ancillary products.

I am currently working with The National Autistic Society and will be soon displaying a blog and lots of extra information on my Facebook page to reflect this and the help I can give to families and individuals who need extra support when choosing the right holiday and travelling. I am an expert in Accessible Travel.
I joined Travel Counsellors as I wanted to concentrate on giving my customers the highest possible levels of personal service as an independent travel agent. Let’s start our journey together in more ways than one, I look forward to it. Happy Holidays!

I was recently lucky enough to travel to Antigua on a Travel Counsellors Trip. A big thank you to Joel and Sean from the Antiguan and Barbuda Tourist Board, Virgin, Elegant Resorts and everyone involved in making this trip so wonderful! We left London Gatwick on a Virgin flight. We flew in Premium Economy which was very spacious and is a very economical way to have some more space and upgrade meals and seating. If you like to spread out then you will find Premium with Virgin great, a footrest and leg support made all the difference on an 8-hour flight....

I had an amazing stay at the Villa Costa in Skala in August 2017. I stayed for seven nights and this adults only hotel was really lovely with only 8 rooms, all individual which made it seem quite quirky and personal. There is a stunning garden and pool area, a lovely terrace and bar where you can eat al fresco. The Villa Costa often has a half board upgrade available, which is well worth it as the food was very good. I am quite fussy and didn't find anything I didn't like all week. A pleasant stay with wonderful staff, the owner Marios...

Natasha is amazing, listens to our needs and requirements and then found us a wonderful holiday. She is flexible and nothing is too much trouble whether it be a big query or even the smallest detail she wants to get it right for us. Very friendly and approachable. Very thorough. Would recommend Natasha to anyone.

Nastasha is professional, friendly and helpful and I know goes the extra length to ensure the holiday that I book with her is exactly the one that I would like to have. I have no hesitation in recommending Natasha and I even did just that at the weekend to two friends who are looking to book trips away this christmas.

Natasha shaped a very special family experience for us, a wonderful Lapland break for the four of us with both sets of grandparents that was exactly how we'd hoped and imagined it would be. Everything we did was like being in a Christmas card. Without her guidance though on resort and package I think we might have spent a lot of money to be disappointed. She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for for our budget. More than that though when, through our own fault it all went pear shaped with a passport emergency, she was unbelievable. Her knowledge of the system, network of contacts, attention to detail under pressure completely rescued us. Incredible service, real value. When its a break that's a bit special I'd thoroughly recommend using a Travel Consultant and Natasha is a star amongst TCs.

Natasha has provided an excellent personal service for a range of trips. She pays attention to the details and doesn't just treat you as another job. I have recommended her to friends and family and have no hesitation in doing so.

Natasha has been nothing short of outstanding. She is a very committed agent and one whom I will be doing much more business with in the future.

I always have found Travel Counsellors most helpful and I recently passed Natasha's details onto a friend who was most impressed with the service she received.

Natasha provided excellent service for our 2012 family holiday, and for booking our 2013 holiday, she provided the same excellent standard of service. Thanks Natasha.

Natasha has been a star the last two weeks with her expertise and knowledge and advice. She is so easy to talk to and is always on hand to answer any of our questions no matter how small or large. Thank you.

Thank you Natasha for taking the time and trouble of finding a holiday cottage in Cornwall off our hands. We had previously spent hours searching through brochures and websites which came to nothing apart from our minds boggling. If it wasn't thanks to Natasha and her contacts, I don't think we would have had as good a holiday as we did.

Natasha was incredibly helpful and so knowledgeable about the specifics of my holiday. She assisted with all requirements and responded to any requests within moments. I would highly recomend her to all. Thank-you!

Natasha tries to give us exactly what we want as customers, advises nicely about different things available without any feeling of pushiness, which is why I feel that ten is well deserved as I can easily recommend her to others knowing they will get the same service. I am not in anyway connected to Natasha and only found her through searching the web for a local TC as my parents had used TC in the past. I've now booked my second holiday through Natasha as it's the easiest way to get the holiday I want without having to trawl the net or travel agents in my spare time.

A huge big thank you to Natasha for booking our holiday to Madeira. We were not sure of the destination we wanted to go to and Natasha made wonderful suggestions! She is so efficient and always willing to answer questions or come up with even more possibilities. We had a fantastic time, everything went so smoothly and Natasha took all the worries away of organising your own trip. Looking forward to booking our next holiday!

This is the first time of using a Travel counsellor, normally I trawl the W.W.web for myself but after spending ages trying to find a ski chalet this year I decided to use Natasha (who I didn't know or hadn't even been recommend too, I Google'd T.c's as my parents always use them). Natasha has taken the headache away, she pinpointed our holiday requirements, booked the holiday and answered any of our queries promptly and clearly. And the holiday hasn't cost me any more than I expected to pay if I'd done the holiday myself. Great job, happy to use you again, and my son is looking to book his honeymoon in America through you. Thanks again - Colin Howe

I have booked many holidays with Natasha over the years as she always has an eye for a bargain and I even ended up with some holidays I did not know I wanted! I have always found her very efficient, knowledgeable and everything is handled like a personal friend.
