Hi, I’m Julie and I live in Didsbury, South Manchester with my family.
I started my career in travel straight from university and for the next 15 years enjoyed a number of tour operation and retail travel management roles. 7 years ago I had a change in direction and switched to the conferencing and events industry, where I had a great time working with blue chip organisations planning their annual meetings and events. They say travel is in your blood however, so here I am now working as a personal travel associate offering a full bespoke travel and concierge service for my clients.
The phenomenal growth of the internet in recent years has seen an explosion of online retailers selling flights, holidays, beds and holiday extras, offering customers a wide choice. However this can make booking a holiday a daunting and frustrating experience. The process is often time consuming and there is also the added complication over the financial security of your money. My role is to take this stress away from you. I will spend the time searching to find you the very best deal and the closest match to your holiday wish list.
Designer Travel is a fully ABTA and ATOL bonded business and we would only book a holiday with a company that has the same level of bonding; so you can be assured that your money is safe.
My all time favourite holiday destination has to be Thailand, the people, the food, the beaches; just perfect. We own a villa on the beautiful island of Cyprus, so of course I have to say that this along with its neighbour Greece are also up there on my list of favourites.
My children are now at the age (8, 10 and 18) where we can be a little more adventurous with our holiday choices, with our first family ski trip booked for next half term. I have of course spent many years searching out the best family friendly hotels, so believe me I know what you need when it comes to a great kids club!
So please do get in touch and I will help you find your perfect holiday.
