About Me

During my 17 years in the industry I have gained a wealth of knowledge working as a Travel Consultant before having my family. I travelled extensively and visited many countries including Canada, USA, Majorca, Italy, Egypt, Turkey and Madeira. I especially enjoyed my skiing trips and the time that I spent in New York and Mickey’s home state of Florida.

The product knowledge I have acquired over the years means that I can help you with a broad range of holiday options, from cruising the seven seas to short breaks, family or tailor-made holidays to worldwide destinations, overseas weddings and honeymoons and of course my all time favourite skiing! I thrive on making sure that I give my customers the best possible service and by making sure that my holiday recommendations really hit the spot. As I work from home, I am contactable during the evenings and at weekends which many customers who work full time find particularly helpful. I look forward to helping you to plan your holidays and to making sure it’s all perfect for you.Susan
