You’ve probably come here to learn more after hearing about me from one of my satisfied clients or you’ve come across something about me from one of the media publications you’ve seen me in.
So, who am I? Firstly, I am a Mum to a wonderful daughter and wife to an amazing and very supportive husband. Having left South Africa 10 years ago, Dubai is the now fourth city that we have been calling home. We love every aspect about living in Dubai, especially the location which allows us access to travel the world from this major travel hub.
I know that every trip is different, some are annual trips away, whilst others are quick getaways.. I know that everyone is different and we all have different requirements. I can guarantee a personalised itinerary to suit everyone travelling. Even though I am based in Dubai, I have clients from the other Emirates, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
The World Wide Web is filled with information and tips and tricks to book your holiday. There are so many sites to book with, so many ‘deals’, so many offering 'advice'. How long does it take you to weed through the massive amounts of information to book a holiday? After countless days and weeks, all you’re left with is information fatigue, and you’re still not sure what to book. Let me take the hassle of sorting through all the information that the internet is throwing at you and put together something that suits you with no hidden charges and no horrible surprises when you get there.
I have chosen to work with Travel Counsellors as they are an extremely reputable name in the travel business and have been in operation for over 20 years in the UK and operate in 7 countries including the UAE and South Africa. I am equipped with modern technology and have access to an extensive array of products from our variety of suppliers to cater to your different travel demands. Travel Counsellors offer financial protection on all my clients’ travel, so it’s great that they can always book and travel with peace of mind.
I could write on and on, but it’s best for you to witness the service I offer first hand.
You’re here because you’ve heard about me, and I hope that I’ve been able to share a little more about myself, what I do, and how I can help you with your travel plans. What are you waiting for? Fill in the form below, email or call me.
Please send me your holiday or travel requirements and I will do my best to help you. Or drop me a note about becoming a Travel Counsellor.
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...
