It's Nice To Meet You

Hi, I'm Soozie, Welcome to my webpage. I am your personal Travel Counsellor based in my
hometown Fetcham in Surrey where I live with my husband, son and 2 dogs Max & Dexter.

I have been travelling from a young age on family holidays, then getting the bug as a teenager to
travel further afield to more exotic destinations such as the Far East and the Indian Ocean. I also said "I DO" in Las Vegas as we wanted to do something different, and visited the Gran Canyon which is another great experience!

I have been working in travel for the past 20 years and has always been my passion! starting off on the High Street, until I took the plunge and worked from home, so It wasn't a difficult choice for me, Travel Counsellors are an award winning company, and have a unique Travel trust which means everything I book is 100% safe and my customers are covered. This is the reason I chose this company so that I can have lot's of companies at my fingertips so that I can find my customers the right holiday, most holidays are bespoke and not off the shelf but I can also book anything from a day trip to Lapland to more adventurous trips trekking in the far east or cruising in Alaska, we also do alot of adventure holidays and sporting trips too from Cycling holidays to Golf breaks to Formula one.. There isn't really any holiday we can't do!

I am always ready to be challenged to find new and exciting holidays for my customers, whether you are looking for a city break to New York, or a beach holiday in the sun, I can use my expertise and years of experience to finding your perfect holiday. After the very difficult year we have just had with Covid and all the uncertainty it's more important than ever to book your holidays through a reputable company and with a travel expert where you can be sure your holiday plans are safe and you are given all the relevant information before your holiday, that is my job to take away the stress of trawling through the internet and here to answer any questions you may have so that you don't need to find the answers or get misleading information online, unlike the internet you will have a human being at the end of the phone to speak to and I am also available out of office hours by appointment too, I am available evenings and weekends when other travel agents are not making it more convenient for you!

My favourite destination is definitely the Maldives. The adventure starts on the seaplane landing on
the pristine waters and white sand beach. What will yours be..? Let me take you there please get in touch I look forward to hearing from you!
And rest assured that your holiday is fully financially protected for peace of mind!

Palladium Hotel Costa Del Sol

30 August 2020

Palladium Costa Del Sol Hotel Post lockdown and I had to visit the Costa del Sol which I know very well as my mother has lived there over 30 years, so I consider it my home from home. Unfortunately I had to go and tie up some loose ends after her passing, and decided after doing so in Fuengirola I would book myself and my son into the New Palladium Costa Del Sol for some well needed R&R. The Palladium was better than I imagined, and even in this strange time and pandemic they did everything to keep their customers safe and welcome. My room was a premium double sea view room which I would recommend, I slept with the balcony door open and fell asleep listening to the waves crash. POOLS/BEACH There is a kid’s pool with a couple of slides and a small baby pool. It has a bar and is down by the beach as well so you can do both like we did. The opposite end of the beach there is also an adult only pool which also has a bar and is in front of the beach too. There is a lovely beach divided by a walkway, there was plenty of room and it was shallow and safe for small children. RESTAURANT The restaurant was big and airy and there was lots of choice for breakfast hot and cold options. Lunch was plentiful and there was a great choice of salad items and cold meats, the hot food was different every day but there was always pizza, chips and burger or hotdog for kids. There was also ice cream and cakes available and lots of fresh fruit. Dinner was the same as lunch which changed daily also. There is also another a la carte restaurant located on the beach which looked amazing, but I never managed to go. There were tables by the window with stunning sea views. ROOMS My room was a sea view which was a stunning view. The balcony was furnished with table and chairs where I sat most evenings, and the bed was massive a nice king size. There was also a sofa bed in the room as well, we used the fridge to store our water, and my son loved the massive tv in the room! It also had a safe. The bathroom was big with a lovely bath and a luxury shower. BAR On level 12 you would find the roof terrace bar where they had music entertainment every night and also had stunning views. This also had some lovely beds with a dipping pool where guests can sunbathe during the day but due to Covid these pools where not filled while I was there. The music that they provided was all enjoyable. GENERAL The hotel had a spa which was closed due to Covid, so I did not see it, but it is easy to find. Outside the hotel in front of beach there is also a small games area with a small mini golf and table tennis table located in front of the kid’s club. The staff were all very attentive and we never had any reason to fault them. I had a late flight and I was able to book a room to use and freshen up and they also stored my luggage which was all easily sorted. The whole stay was very enjoyable and although we visited in a pandemic where masks were worn, and hands had to be sanitised before entering the restaurant this did not faze myself or my 10-year-old. AREA I know the area very well having been bought up round southern Spain so I generally use the public transport to get around. The train can get you to most places and there is a lot to visit with kids, from parks to wildlife to the waterpark. I can give you lots of ideas on the area depending what your interests are, we have visited Gibraltar many times and this is very easy to do and not that expensive! You can also pop to Torremolinos shopping or Fuengirola for a day out and this can all be done by train, and kids will love the mini golf either in Fuengirola or Torremolinos! For the golf lovers there is Mijas which is easy to reach. There are many other beautiful places to visit and all very easy to reach and I would be happy to share my knowledge with you! I would recommend this hotel for a lovely all-inclusive family friendly stay! I will be back very soon!

Olhuveli Beach Resort & Spa Maldives

26 November 2019

This beautiful island is reached by speed boat and takes around 45 minutes. Once you arrive you will not be disappointed! With the dazzling white sand and a turquoise lagoon, this all inclusive resort was one of the reasons we chose this one. As everything is imported prices of drinks and food is high so would definitely recommend going all inclusive when visiting the Maldives. The food in the restaurants was really tasty and varied and also catered for my husband being vegetarian. We never got bored and there was a great choice of foods and the restaurant also had wonderful views. You could also book a private meal down on the beach for 2 at an additional cost. The island caters for families as well as couples, but when we visited we didn't see any children and it was very quiet even though they were pretty full. We used a few of the facilities such as the spa and we did try out a little badminton and snorkelled every day which was a breath taking experience as you step straight into a reef. We saw some amazing marine life including sea turtles, nemo fish, puffer fish, water snakes and a shark But the most amazing by far was the manta ray. You could sit at the end of the jetty at around 8pm and just watch them swim up and down as they had lighting, you could also arrange to dive in and swim with them as well. We stayed in a beach villa which was clean and well equipped and came with free WiFi and also a mini bar and bottled water and tea and coffee making facilities. We didn't do any trips but you could do a fishing boat trip but we were happy to sit and chill out and swim in the sea as there was enough to see for us. I would recommend this island and I would love to go back again some time in the future.

I couldn’t thank Soozie enough for all her help booking my trip to the Maldives. We originally had a 4 month backpacking itinerary planned for various countries across the world, however we’ve put that on hold for now due to covid, but I will 100% be booking that with Soozie when the rest of the world opens up! No challenge seems too hard, every question I’ve had has been answered quickly and Soozie has gone above and beyond to help me so I know everything before and during my trip will run smoothly. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
