About Me

Hello, my name is Simon Gemmell and I live in West Lothian, situated between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

I’ve spent my working life in the independent travel business; the last seven years or so with Designer Travel which allows me to offer a dedicated personal service.

I have travelled to many worldwide destinations including Canada and Alaska. I’ve also cruised numerous times on different types of ship from clipper to ultra-luxury. With my experience and knowledge, as well as feedback from my existing clients, I can assist you to make the right choices to fit your budget and requirements.

I will also assist with all the boring and time-consuming intricacies of travel such as Advance Passenger Information (API), allocation of seats on planes, check-in procedures, producing boarding passes, any upgrade of seating, or advice concerning visas and other important information.

If you book with me at Designer Travel you can also be assured that your holiday is properly protected, not only financially but also in the event of any disruption due to bad weather or strikes etc. I would act as your travel consultant from start to finish with any booking.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Regards

Simon
