‘With us it’s personal’ really epitomises what your holiday plans mean to me. Whether you are looking for the honeymoon of a lifetime, a luxury cruise or that perfect family holiday, I will make sure that you get the personal and exceptional service you deserve.

I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to visit many destinations including Australia, the Far East, Africa, America, Canada, the Caribbean and of course Europe. I love cruising, and have personal experience of most of the major and most popular cruise liners.

Being part of Travel Counsellors means I have access to award winning technology and better buying power than I have ever experienced before. I also have access to all of the big travel industry names as well as lots of niche products at better rates than anyone else.
