About Me

A warm welcome from me to my personal web page. My name is Sheila Cooper and I have enjoyed a long career in the travel industry.
Over the years I have travelled and experienced many destinations and have cruised many seas. I am passionate about finding the right holiday for my customers and taking as much stress as possible out of finding and going on holiday.
One of my favourite islands has to be Mauritius and I have stayed many times at the best address on the island “The Royal Palm”

If you are looking for luxury on the beach, a family holiday, your honeymoon or just a few days away then I would be delighted to help. All holidays we sell are fully protected under ABTA or  ATOL and as we are independent we really have the pick of thousands of hotels and suppliers.

Most of my clients either call or email me their requirements. I can then start to work on this for you while you carry on with your life. I try to make planning and booking your trip as care and stress free as possible. I will also contact hotels if you require specific rooms or any other requirements. Special Occasion, not a problem I can take care of any little luxuries you might like to arrange either for yourself or for someone else to enjoy.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any of your travel requirements or for any advice. I am very friendly and approachable and would love to hear from you.

Best wishes,
