About Me

I have worked in luxury travel for the past seven years, I am very passionate about the luxury travel sector and appreciate the benefits working within this area brings, I have been able to see some of the most amazing resorts in the world and thoroughly enjoy passing on my extensive knowledge, knowing that I can enthuse my clients and excite them about their forthcoming holiday.

I take great pride in my work, I am meticulous, conscientious & tenacious and I am always keen to learn more.
I enjoy nurturing new relationships with agents whilst also taking great care to support those relationships already established.

Favourite Places

I have travelled extensively to various destinations such as The Indian Ocean, Italy, Middle East, Asia, Australia, The USA and Caribbean.

My main areas of expertise lie with The Indian Ocean, Italy, The Far East and Dubai, my favourite country is Italy where I recently got married, my favourite hotel is Huvafen Fushi, it is truly stunning and my favourite city has to be New York!

I have two main travel goals for the next few years - the first one is to visit South Africa and the second one is to take road trip around California. 

The main thing that differentiates me from other sales people in this industry is that I work from home and with a regular group of agents which allows me to nurture each agent and spend more time with them. I am also available to work outside of normal working hours and if clients have any problems I am always on hand to help. 

Travel Tips;

  • Divide each person's belongings amongst all luggage. This is especially important for traveling with a baby, but good for everyone too. That way no one is SOL if one bag is lost. 
  • If flying economy in a couple always book the window & aisle seat - 99% of the time no one will book the middle seat and you will have 3 seats between 2! 
  • Call your credit card company before you leave and put a travel alert on your card. While you're at it, jot down their international customer service number
