Barbara Sutton – Travel Counsellor
24 Bean Leach Drive, Offerton, Stockport SK2 5HZ
As a local Personal Travel Counsellor I can help make your holiday dreams a reality and create the perfect break for you and your family. I started out in the travel business working as a holiday rep, airport manager and resort manager throughout Spain and many of its islands, Portugal, Cyprus and Mexico spending 11 years overseas. On my return to the UK I contracted accommodation in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Scandinavia. I have travelled extensively with my family and experienced first-hand a wide variety of holidays.
After a diversion for several years into Corporate sales, last year I returned to my roots and set up my own business as a Travel Counsellor. I realised that travel knowledge and experience was disappearing from the High St and often people were taking unnecessary risks and were forced to become travel experts on the internet, often choosing the wrong type of holiday or leaving themselves financially unprotected and not having any personal contact or expertise to ensure they were making the right choices.
As a Travel Counsellor and being independent I have access to all tour operators’ product but can also tailor-make holidays using our own contract rates with airlines and hotels and our overseas network of destination offices and experts. I offer everything including UK breaks, city breaks, beach, ski, lake & mountains, ocean or river cruising, escorted or private tours, safari and adventure. Whatever and wherever you want to be, I can help get you there.
I take away all the hassle and confusion around making holiday plans and offer a friendly and personal service to ensure you get the perfect holiday with lots of added value. I am contactable whenever you need to discuss your plans and throughout your holiday experience, even when you are away. I arrange all your pre-departure requirements such as API, online check-in and seat selection, destination and visa advice. I also contact your chosen hotel directly before you travel to ensure all runs smoothly on arrival. For added peace of mind we also have our own 24hr Duty Office to help in any type of emergency.
I would love to help with your holiday planning and look forward to hearing from you soon!
