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!

    What Barbara doesn’t know about travel isn’t worth knowing!
    My husband and I were planning a trip to see the Northern Lights in November for my 60th. Not having a clue where to start we were soon advised as to our best ways of seeing the lights by going on a Hurtigruten Norwegian cruise.
    Barbara has helped us down to every last detail! We are now very much looking forward to the trip!

    I was a bit lost trying to find a small break to celebrate my husbands birthday.
    I looked in everywhere , had loads of information but nothing was good and due to covid the fear to book online was enormous .
    she was amazing , she gave me about 10 options of really nice hotels . I love to have options 😀
    She IS full of knowledge about the areas, about covid situation…The whole process didn’t take long , soo easy to book with her .
    Thanks to Barbara 😀 , we are going to Krakow in December
