Hello! I am a Travel Fairy Godmother. Your travel wish is my command!
I am very passionate about travel and have been in the industry now for over 16 years. I love to travel and I’m always bugging my husband about where to go next! Having spent many years working in a high street travel agency I am now independent so I can use all my knowledge, experience and good old fashioned customer service to assist you with all your holiday needs, tailor making your trip personally to you. Whether it is a UK break or to somewhere more exotic, a relaxing holiday or something more adventurous. From special occasions to just getting away from it all I can find the perfect holiday for you to make memories to last a lifetime.
Everything you book is 100% financially protected and unlike the internet I personally take care of everything from your initial enquiry to when you return home. You'll deal direct with me so no call centres and treating your holiday as if it were my own, I can be available at a time to suit you, be it in person, over the phone, email or even video call. Should your travel plans change or need to be amended I will be there every step of the way taking care of any amendments or refunds so you can sit back and relax. Booking your travel with me is a hassle-free process.
The world may not be open for business as we are used to, but it is full of so many incredible places waiting for you to re discover once we are able to travel again more freely. I always keep up to date with current travel restrictions and entry requirements. I can help you with many different types of holidays including tailormade itineraries, beach, family, city breaks, cruise, weddings, honeymoons, Disney, or even UK breaks to name a few. Lots of these holidays I have been fortunate to experience myself. From a water villa in the Maldives to camping in the UK, or a Disney cruise with the family to escaping for a romantic city break with the hubby, I have lots of personal recommendations to help plan your perfect escape.
I aim to make organising your trip as enjoyable and relaxing as possible, all you will have to do is pack. When you book your travel with me it is a hassle-free process from start to finish.
So why not get in touch and let’s create something to look forward to.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

I tried not to get too excited about our trip to turkey with the ever-changing travel advice as I wasn’t sure that it would go ahead, which for anyone who knows me is very unlike me. Having already had a cruise cancelled and the foreign office advice suddenly changing meaning we had to cancel Tenerife, Turkey was deemed to be on the safe list next for us to try. The day finally arrived, suitcases all packed and off we went to the airport. The airport experience was actually quite pleasant. We parked onsite at Stansted and although we...

The past few months have been like nothing I have ever seen in the travel industry. I have been through 9/11, ash clouds and Swine Flu but Covid 19 really has taken the world out with an enormous bang! The past few months has seen so many cancellations of not just holiday plans but life as we know it with social distancing becoming the new normal to help enable us all to stay safe. Now that the world is starting to cautiously re open its doors are you like me, thinking that you are ready to travel as soon as we...

Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular and represent great value for money usually with lots of extras included and can be less stressful to organise than weddings in the UK. There are lots of different destinations to choose from whether it’s a beach, snow, top of a mountain or with Elvis by your side there is something to suit all couples looking to get married abroad. After my now husband and I got engaged, we decided on a winter wedding and that we would like to go abroad to get hitched. Weddings can be so expensive nowadays and easily...

We booked a holiday for my brothers wedding in Cyprus with Ria Clarke. Unfortunately due to Covid 19 this was not going to be, however with Ria’s help we rebooked a holiday to Gran Canaria but unfortunately again this was not meant to be due to government restrictions. Again Ria was so helpful in helping us rebook third time lucky a holiday to Royal Side Palace, Side in Turkey and what an amazing holiday it was, could not fault a thing. Ria dealt with everything from start to finish which took away so much stress that I would normally have when arranging a holiday. Thank you so much. We are already looking to rebook for next year

We were personally recommended Ria’s travel counselling services and she has exceeded all our expectations! When we started to think about booking a trip to Disney Land, the sheer amount of companies and options available was overwhelming, we’re so glad we had Ria to talk us through it all. Ria completed extensive research for our trip (which would have been quite exhausting with full time teaching jobs, two kids and a dog in the mix!) and got us the very best price for our travel, accommodation and on-site activities. We were fully updated at each step with personal and friendly calls, emails and cards and even in these uncertain times, we felt confident that our holiday (and payment) was in safe hands! Thank you Ria, we look forward to booking with you again soon! Heidi and Adam

A couple of days before we embark on a lovely family holiday, a guide book for our destination was delivered to our front door! What a wonderful, kind touch from Ria! Thank you, for that and all your planning. Will definitely be recommending you to others!

Tantalising Thailand exceeded all expectations! From the extra treats on the flight to the arrival gestures at the resort, Ria had planned every detail of our romantic anniversary holiday to perfection!! All of our travel information was clear and easy to understand. We had a 24 hour helpline and the app, in case we needed any extra help. Everything was smooth, from the flights, to the boat and private car transfers. We truly didn’t have to worry about a thing! On Christmas Day we had a ‘floating breakfast’ in our Hillside pool villa which was so memorable! We couldn’t have chosen to spend our wedding anniversary and Christmas in a better way. We highly recommend Ria, our friends and family have already contacted her for holiday quotes, from family trips to Disney Land to luxury cruises. Ria will find the most competitive deal to suit your budget. We will be booking all our holidays this way in future as it was all so easy and stress-free, meaning we could relax to the max! Thank you again, Mr and Mrs Pitt.

Ria arranged our travel plans from the start and I am sure the process of assistance will not end untill we complete our journeys - this is is the best part booking through Ria. We had booked our tickets previously with other travel agents however their job ended once the tickets were booked and money transferred. Unlike others, Ria was happy to assist throughout the lifecycle of our journey. Would definitely recommend Ria for any holiday /flight bookings.
