I believe that life should be full of exciting travel experiences, tailored to meet your unique interests and needs. So you have decided to take a trip. Having made that decision, now imagine the benefit of having your own personal Travel Counsellor - someone who takes pride in getting to know you personally, providing you with a confidential service and taking care of all your travel requirements. Your time is precious, now you can cast aside the many hours spent trawling through the internet and travel brochures and allow me to arrange it all for you.

I would describe being a Travel Counsellor as being a “Travel Designer” who makes your dreams come alive. I use my knowledge of destinations, resorts, escorted tours, cruises, air travel and attractions to make the best arrangements for your holiday to match your budget. Everyone’s travel interests are varied, some live for museums and galleries others crave excitement and adventure. I take the time to get to know you so I can tailor-make your trip to be as individual as you are. For your convenience I am available outside normal office hours to discuss your travel plans.

Travel is my passion and over the past 30 years I have travelled the globe, initially as a solo traveller, then as a couple and more recently as a family with our three children. My travels are varied and have taken me from the exotic shores of the world’s gems such as the Maldives and Seychelles to the vibrant cities of Hong Kong and Las Vegas, from the picturesque ski slopes of the Rockies and the Alps to the fun filled family holidays spent in camper vans, cruising and thrilling adventures in theme parks!

Travel Counsellors are fully licensed and bonded. We are totally independent allowing us access to a huge range of travel providers from low cost airlines to competitive rates with world airlines, ensuring the best possible value for you.

The challenge to create the perfect holiday that matches your style, needs and budget is what keeps me enthusiastic. I see travel as an adventure, an escape from daily routines and a chance to look through a window of another culture. So as you embark on the next great journey in your life consider taking the first step in my direction. I look forward to receiving your call.

Jeanette was extremely helpful in designing a family holiday. I had requested that we would like to have a mix of both a city break with a relaxing break, preferably by the beach. She worked hard to come up with various options, a lot of which she was able to talk from personal experience, taking away the hassle and stress of trying to organize it myself. Thoroughly professional and so easy to work with, I would absolutely recommend and have done so to friends.

Safari with Kids!

Jeanette's blog, 27/06/2019

Going on a family safari will be one of the most rewarding and exciting holidays you'll ever take. Yes, there are many factors to be considered and many restrictions so getting the right advice is essential.

I’m regularly asked, ‘What is the right age to take our kids on safari?’ As a general rule I would recommend from the age of 10 upwards, bear in mind game-viewing is a patient exercise so the ability to sit in a jeep for two to three hours is vital.
