Hello, I’m Suzanne a member of the Designer Travel team based in Worcester Park, Surrey and live here very happily with my husband and little boy.
My passion for travel started at a very early age and it felt the natural career choice for me to work in the travel industry. As a result, I worked for British Airways at London’s Heathrow Airport from the tender age of 18 years old! For the next 21 years, I furthered my career within the airline, developing a real passion for delivering excellent customer service.
However, I have now truly found happiness working as a Personal Travel Expert for Designer Travel which I have done since the middle of 2010. I absolutely love sharing my in-depth travel knowledge and personal experiences that I have gained over the years to help create the perfect holiday. I get a great sense of satisfaction when my customers return from a holiday and tell me they had a wonderful time and it was all thanks to me!
Although I can help with any kind of holiday request, I greatly enjoy being a complimentary overseas wedding and honeymoon planner and working with Brides & Grooms. Getting married abroad or going on honeymoon is the most important and special trip they will make once in a lifetime and it is my responsibility to make it as perfect as possible for them. I also received the fantastic accolade of being voted by my customers through Cornish Brides Magazine as being the best travel professional in Cornwall planning honeymoons and weddings abroad which I was chuffed to bits with.
I also enjoy working with groups travelling and have been very fortunate to be the travel agent of choice working each year with an Independent School who attend a conference in China every year as well as organising an extensive sight-seeing programme for them. Other group bookings I have worked on include business trips and Hen and Stag weekend breaks for wedding couples.
Going on holiday myself, the best trip I have been on has to be to Barbados with my husband on our first holiday together. We stayed at a fantastic adult only All Inclusive Resort and did lots of exploring around the island by Jeep. What made the holiday even more special was celebrating my husband’s birthday by having a meal at The Cliff Restaurant which we had to book months in advance of our arrival. The worst holiday I had was when I was in Los Angeles and experienced a large earthquake in the middle of the night. Got woken up at 4am to find the whole room shaking – I thought I was having a nightmare!
So, if you are looking for holiday inspiration, great service and value for money then give me a call – I’d be delighted to help!
