Hello I'm Ruth, I'm so pleased you have found me ……. I'm ready to plan your perfect trip.
I started working in the travel industry in 1998 for a well known high street chain, where I worked my way up, but my love of travelling started well before that, visiting destinations such as Bali, Mexico, St Lucia, Egypt to name but a few and I have a great passion for cruising.
After 15 years as a high street travel agent, I decided to take the challenge of setting up my business working from home, but still doing what I love … selling holidays, but also enabling me to spend more time with my rescue dogs.
Since starting with Travel Counsellors I am very proud of my 100% customer satisfaction score, as I am able to give the highest level of personalised customer service from finding the perfect trip to checking you in online, plus all the bits in between, I treat every customers travel plans as if they were my own and pride myself on my meticulous attention to detail.

We visited New York on the 16th December 2017, It was a lovely experience, enhanced by the Christmas Lights. Fantastic hotel called the Langham Place, 5 Star luxury with very large rooms, walk in wardrobe, deep soak bath and separate rainfall shower. 5 huge floor to ceiling windows with remote control blackout curtains. We were on the 17th floor with an Empire State Building view, well worth the upgrade and so quiet.

I couldn't believe how wonderfully easy and pleasurable Ruth made the experience of booking a holiday. Within no time at all Ruth emailed me full details of 6 excellent options and the deals were the best I could have wished for. After selecting the one most appealing to me, Ruth booked my break and emailed me a very easy payment link, followed by my confirmation. Also, I received a lovely thank you email and card from the delightful Ruth. I couldn't be happier with my Travel Counsellor Ruth and I will never entertain trying to look for or book a holiday/ break myself again. Thank you so very much Ruth, I very much look forward to booking again with you soon!
