Hi! I’m Sarah. I live in Widnes with my husband and our two teenage children.
I became a Travel Counsellor after 25 years experience successfully organising our independent travel adventures. I enjoy the research and planning of our trips almost as much as the eventual destinations and I want to share the expertise that I’ve gained to help others have fantastic holiday experiences.
My speciality is putting together personalised multicentre and touring itineraries to all corners of the world. Our travels have taken us to 30 countries so far - all were amazing adventures - but the absolute highlights were: journeying to Machu Picchu, ice climbing on the Nigardsbreen Glacier in Norway, rafting on the Mekong River in the Golden Triangle, chasing the 2017 eclipse through America’s Midwest and (most recently) climbing China's holy Huashan mountain near Xi'an.
I’m equally able to advise on holidays closer to home. As a young family, we’ve travelled to lots of European beach resorts, cities and the surrounding countryside and I thoroughly understand the specific needs that families have in order to travel safely (and sanely) with babies and toddlers, all the way up to moody teenagers!
We’ve also been lucky enough to sail with several cruise lines in different parts of the world, and owing to our experiences, my exhaustive research and ongoing training, I have an in-depth knowledge of all the major operators, itineraries and ships and what they can specifically offer you as a couple, family or group.
Five visits to Florida (and counting) and it’s safe to say that I’m a Walt Disney World fanatic. I know the logistics, parks and attractions like the proverbial back-of-my-hand and I’ve got lots of insider tips and tricks on touring, tickets and the best places to stay. I can help make, what can sometimes be quite a demanding holiday, into the most memorable trip ever.
As a Travel Counsellor, I manage my own business from home, so you have direct access to me at a time to suit you. I use award-winning technology to connect with over 70,000 trusted global suppliers and because I’m not tied to specific products, I can use my travel expertise and customised research to craft the perfect holiday, business trip or honeymoon for YOU.
With exceptional attention to detail, brilliant personal touches, the best financial protection in the industry and 24/7 worldwide support, a trip organised with me will be straightforward, seamless and stress-free.
Get in touch and let me work with you to plan the best experience possible for you and your family.

Sarah couldn't have been more helpful and patient and in no way pushy at all. I feel she genuinely wants to get the best option for you and for you to have the best holiday...and I'm sure this would be the case for any customer not just people she knows! Would recommend without a doubt!

Would highly recommend to others and have also recommended to people we have met in holiday. No fuss, no hassle, find exactly what you want within budget. Lovely little touches too, like keeping in touch throughout the booking, little goodies gift cards sweets to take on your holiday and texts on the way home and a parcel on your step to welcome you back! How good is that for a service!

Sarah was very easy to talk to, to explain what we wanted from our holiday. Great to have a way to not have to search hotel after hotel for a holiday, we’re grateful for the help and no fuss. We will be consulting Sarah again! Thanks.

Sarah was super helpful in recommending holiday options after listening to what my husband and I were looking for, sticking to our budget and advising of pros and cons to help us decide.

Sarah has been amazing. Very approachable, kept us up to date, sorted out a fantastic holiday for us that was just what we wanted (and more). Completely bespoke. Will use her again for sure.

Fabulous, friendly, personal service. Delivered the perfect holiday, bang on budget and ticked all the boxes. Sarah went above and beyond my original spec and provided plenty of options/alternatives. Would and have recommended Sarah to all my friends and family. Very confident and comforted in the reassurance Sarah offered and I'm sure this will be the perfect holiday for us.

A cheeky city break - that’s what we needed! After a convenient Friday teatime flight from Liverpool and an easy train to our hotel, we were sat in the bar by 9pm having a cocktail! Me and the kids all love history and Berlin has some world-famous monuments, so this was going to be a weekend of museums, parks, iconic sites, pop culture, along with the obligatory bratwurst, sauerkraut and beer. Prost! WORD WAR II Day one was going to be all about World War II. I’d found a guided tour of the air raid shelters built into the subway system. A quick...

I’m a science geek! Growing up I was aware (ten years ahead of time) that a solar eclipse was going to cross the UK in 1999. Long story short, I didn’t quite make it down to Cornwall that year but seeing a total eclipse has been at the very top of my bucket list ever since. I’m not sure when I first became aware of the 2017 eclipse, but with a viewing path stretching coast to coast across America, taking place during the summer holidays with a good chance of clear skies, it seemed like my very best opportunity...

July 2015: my son and his school friends are discussing where they are going on holiday that summer. When prompted my son replies “Norway”. He receives consolatory shrugs from his friends, and his expression says “yeah, what can you do?” My holiday inspiration comes from images and opinions mined from the internet and travel guides. Deep in research the January before, I came across a beautiful picture taken from a mountaintop, looking down the sides of a green valley into the grey-blue depths of a Norwegian fjord with a tiny cruise ship chugging along in the distance. It stopped me in...
