About Me

Hi I’m Kay, I live in Chester-le Street in the North East of England with my husband.

I have worked in Travel for over 27 years of which I have been lucky enough to work for Designer Travel for over 7 years and truly love my job. My previous role was a Branch Manager of a High Street Travel Agent. So I am very knowledgable when it comes to finding you the perfect getaway.

Since joining the ‘Designer Team’ I am lucky enough to have won many awards,including Best Newcomer in my frst year, Top perfoming homeworker 2 years running of which I am very proud. July 2017 I was delighted to win a prestigous award which I picked up in London, The Aspire Extra Mile Award. This is a national award and to be shortlisted to the final 3 in the Country was such an honour and then to go on and win…. well speechless! More recently I won the award for our business for Team Contribution, of which again I was thrilled.

I love to travel and have been to some truly amazing places in my 28 years in the travel business. My favourite destination has got to be the Maldives or otherwise known as ‘paradise’ which is where i spent my honeymoon. Up there with the Maldives is the beautiful island of Mauritius and I am very knowledgable on lots of hotels as have been lucky enough to spend time all over the island. I can help you with any type of holiday all over the world…I’m also a great lover of cruises. Over the years I have taken over twenty cruises and experienced some of the amazing ships that make up the fleets for companies like P&O, Cunard, RCL, Celebrity and more… I have organised trips for single travellers, couples, families and also enjoy organising group travel which often requires a few different skills and being really organised!

…. however whatever your choice would be please feel free to call or email me and i can share my knowledge with
you and help you find your perfect holiday.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kay for booking our trip to Orlando/Miami to celebrate my birthday and our forthcoming 25th wedding anniversary. The flights, car and hotel in Miami were fantastic. Would definitely recommend the Gale Regent hotel south beach in Miami. Thanks again Kay.
