Customer Story 1

I had the privilege and good fortune to have the opportunity and in some instances the obligation to travel extensively for quite a long period of time. Throughout that time I used many excellent travel agents. In relation to Roger, I can say without hesitation that it has been the most professional and seamless experience I have had to date. Highly recommend Roger.

Roger has been brilliant so far great knowledge of the places we are planning to travel to. Very much looking forward to continue to work with him as we plan the rest of our trip.

David Best, County Tyrone
Customer Story 8

If I could score an eleven on this question I completely would. He must have many hundreds of repeat customers and never forgets the airlines I like to fly with and the ones I want to avoid. There is no doubt that all my future flights and holidays will be put into the charge of Roger’s experienced hands. He always makes sure that my digital boarding passes are sent for me to collect via the Travel Counsellors App. All-in-all, a flawless service provided by one of the most experienced travellers imaginable!

Darren Warnock, County Tyrone

Excellent work Roger, thanks. Service which went well beyond expert and efficient, through care and comfort to diplomatic and delight! Despite what must have seemed a frustratingly inattentive, haphazard client, you achieved the result - Great holiday in South Africa!

A fabulous Christmas was had by the Glasgow's. A big thanks to Roger for all his help in planning this amazing holiday to Disney World Florida. His continued attention during our trip, from pre-booking plane seats and taking care of online check in on Christmas Day and again during our return flights. We had an amazing 2 weeks and would highly recommend Roger if you are thinking of booking your holiday.

The service provided by Roger is excellent. He goes to incredible lengths to find the best possible travel arrangements for his clients. I will continue to use Travel Counsellors for my future travel arrangements and have no hesitation in recommending Roger to my business contacts and friends.

Customer Story 5

I have used Roger's services over many years and always found him to be very well informed and attentive. I have recommended him to family and friends who also speak highly of his service.

Louis Fitzgerald, Blackrock, County Dublin
Customer Story 6

Roger is the most efficient, effective and committed travel agent I know. The service he provides is exceptional. Friends ask me why I'd use a travel agent when I could book online myself. I have tried several times to book online but I have never found any 'deal' close to what Roger finds for me. Roger is always available to help or answer one of my many queries. Travelling with Roger is effortless - I recommend him to everyone.

Treasa Kelly, Castlemartyr, County Cork
Customer Story 7

Roger, thank you so much for all your help with a fabulous trip to Bali & Kuala Lumpar. This was a trip of a lifetime and with your impeccable assistance & service the trip went without a hitch. I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends & family.

Vanessa Bergin, Kilcock, Co. Kildare
Customer Story 8

My wife and I are new customers of Rogers and we were really impressed by the personal effort he and his staff made to make us feel special and looked after. He arranged the most incredible and memorable honeymoon for us and was immediately there, on-hand when we encountered a couple of small problems along the way. We really valued him looking after everything and it really took all the stress off and allowed us to concentrate purely on our vacation. We will definitely be requesting his services in the future for all our travel and accommodation arrangements.

David Hughes, California
Customer Story 9

I and many of my friends and colleagues have entrusted our travel arrangements to Roger (both business and pleasure) over a number of years. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His level of service and attention to detail go far beyond anything I have ever experienced with any other travel agent. Nothing is ever too much trouble.

Sara Moorhead, Dublin
Customer Story 10

Paul and I had the most amazing time on our trip! Bali is such a beautiful place and very definitely captured our hearts. The only shame about it all is that it had to come to an end. Thanks again for all your help organising the trip. It was a great peace of mind that everything was in place.

Vanessa Bergin, Kilcock, Kildare
Customer Story 11

We had a totally marvellous holiday. Our best ever, alongside Australia which you also organised so well for us. All the accommodations were perfect for us; the car was superb. All went smoothly with no problems at all. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job for us again Roger.

Glenn Kilroy, Blackrock, Dublin
Customer Story 12

Nothing but good things to say about Roger! He gets that price, although important, is not the entire picture. Routing, flexibility, seating, timing etc. all play into a booking and he has all angles covered. That's why I keep coming back.

Magical Finnish Lapland

Roger's blog, 09/12/2021

Immediately prior to pandemic lockdown in March 2020, I’d taken a first trip to any Nordic country with a long overdue visit to Iceland. My first time on an aircraft since then and deferred from 2020 due to Covid travel restrictions, I was Nordic bound again, flying mid-December 2021 to Finnish Lapland. A charter flight direct from Dublin into northern Finnish airport of Kuusamo (800km due north of the capital, Helsinki) A 5m high snowman in the airport parking lot set the scene for the days to come, letting us get underway for the relatively short 60 minute transfer...
