Hello and welcome, Your journey starts here... My name is Emma and I'm from Cork in the south of Ireland. I have called Dubai my home from home now for just over 17 years now.
I started my travel business with Travel Counsellors UAE after an extensive career in aviation with one of the biggest airlines in the UAE. I was a travel consultant in my hometown in Ireland before this and here is where my love for all things travel began.
I am fortunate to have travelled to and explored 66 countries globally and it has only made me want to see and do more. My passion and love for it increase with every new destination that I visit. Meeting people, sharing the local cuisines, taking time to get to know cultures, learning their stories and pasts are all things I love about travelling. I also really enjoy organising and researching my trips and have always planned everything down to the last detail. These are just some of the reasons I knew, starting my business with Travel Counsellors UAE was the right fit for me. I happily share my knowledge with my customers to make their travel experiences better. I will take care of your travel itinerary by doing some things I love for you, planning, organising and sharing my own experiences
For me travelling is sometimes about getting from A to B and other times it's about making memories. The Dalai Lama once said "Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer" so let me help to make you richer by getting you there, by helping you embark on those new adventures and by making those incredible travel moments and memories.
I'm here to help you to tailor-make your travel and holiday plans. I will ask you some short questions to ensure I know exactly what you need and together we can make your experience seamless and unforgettable. I will be with you every step of the way and it will be my pleasure to take away any stresses or doubts you may have about your travel plans.
So whether you are planning a business trip, a staycation here in the beautiful UAE or a trip further afield with your loved ones, the world is your oyster, get in touch and let's make it possible. I look forward to speaking with you very soon
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...

Our trip to the Maldives started with landing on Male Island, the Maldives capital, one of over a thousand Islands that the Maldives is made up of. Landing in here, if you have a have a chance definitely get a window seat, it is always a beautiful sight, blue skies, crystal blue waters dotted with green island resort paradises. Male airport is quite small at the moment, you can see that there are works going on and what looks like some exciting expansion plans, from the plane we are taken on a short bus ride from the plane to the terminal...

Emma Allen was our travel counsellor and she was AMAZING! We went to her via a recommendation to book a 4 day trip to Cairo. We were a group of 11 from Iceland. Emma planned the whole stay from a-z, hotel, day trips etc., but as a group of 11 people an age gap from 5 to 74 y.o. We had different needs and a lot of questions and Emma found a way for everyone to be happy. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she catered to every need we had, she even found out that twin brothers from the group celebrated their 12th-year-old birthday during our stay and had a birthday cake delivered to the room! Emma always answered any questions we had quickly no matter what time of day. I even asked her once if she was working around the clock! We will definitely go to Emma again to plan our next holiday with her.

It was an absolutely amazing experience the whole adventure trip. We truly had an awesome time. The logistics, camp, the food, game drives, everything from the get-go were fantastic and hassle-free. Many thanks to you, Emma for arranging this once-in-a-lifetime taste of wildlife. I'm very much looking forward to planning our next adventure with you, Emma

I didn’t know where to start when thinking about booking a holiday with all the restrictions. When I contacted Emma it was the best decision I ever made… she made it so easy and she made sure that all the travel restrictions were considered so that there were no surprises. She sent me all the relevant information and documents I had to complete before travel - it just made it stress-free. Can’t thank her enough. I have peace of mind going on holiday now. Thank you! 10/10
