It's Nice To Meet You

Lovely to meet you, I’m Vinny from Ashtead in Surrey who has a deep passion for travel. I believe that a life well travelled is a life well lived and I’m excited about getting you set on your next dream holiday!

For me nothing beats the feeling of arriving at the airport with my passport in hand and knowing I’m about to walk towards my next new adventure, this feeling never gets old! What I am able to do as a Travel Counsellor is to take your dream and make it happen, working always within your budget and to your personal criteria I can provide you with a seamless and truly bespoke experience where all you need to worry about is making sure you don’t forget to pack your SPF!

So whether you are looking for a once in a lifetime adventure, a city break, a ski holiday, or perhaps a cruise, not forgetting a staycation, there is nothing that I cannot do. For my clients I am available day and night, offering a personalised travel service with your complete satisfaction being my priority from initial contact right up until you arrive home! In addition to this, everything booked is 100% financially protected by ATOL and the Travel Counsellors Trust, giving you absolute peace of mind.

Growing up in England I loved our family holidays abroad and with Italian parents I consider Italy my home from home. Having a connection overseas instilled in me from a young age how important travel is and that to submerse ourselves in foreign cultures is a privilege and a learning comparable to nothing else. One of the greatest gifts I can share with my 7 year old son Alfie is the gift of travel and I would love nothing more to pass on my knowledge and expertise to you and your family so that you too can see all that there is to be seen.

My customer stories

Vinny, was very helpful and knowledgeable taking time for me to ask questions and providing several quotes prior to deciding. Thanks Vinny

Professional, friendly and informed. Perfect ‘listening’ skills and ability to decipher what the customer really wants and then give them options and advice. Very knowledgeable and the amazing service continues after the holiday is booked. Nothing is too much trouble. Taken all the stress out of booking our family holiday. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Vinny and will definitely use her again. Excellence from start to finish

'Vinny at Travel Counsellors organised my recent business trip to Hong Kong along with two colleagues. Everything went like clockwork! Vinny gave me constant updates and checked in with me the day before departure to reconfirm timings and arrangements. It was perfect and Vinny was a joy to deal with! Thank you!"
