I am the owner of Travel Circle and I started the company back in December 1999. The travel industry has provided us with many challenges over the years but our core values have always remained the same; quality customer service, honest opinion and detailed product knowledge are in my opinion the key elements of what makes the business tick.
I’ve always enjoyed the day to day contact with our customers and I like to think that I am always contactable. I am very passionate about the good reputation that Travel Circle has earned over the years and this is shown in the holidays we sell. Basically if we know a property, destination or tour operator has a bad reputation, we won’t sell them.
My Specialist Areas
I’ve been working in travel for 18 years so I have a pretty in-depth knowledge of most destinations. My travels have taken me to The Caribbean, The USA, Africa, The Middle East and the majority of European Beach Resorts. I have also visited many European Cities and have cruised both The Norwegian Fjords and Eastern Mediterranean.
I have 4 young children so I also have a good idea about what makes a good family holiday.
However I would say that my main niche area is knowing which hotels are good, and which hotels are not. I take a lot of time listening to clients and finding out about any positives and negatives, and I then use the information to help other clients.
My Favourite Destinations
Personally the more authentic a destination the better for me. I like scenic, quiet holidays where there are plenty of sights – and it’s not too hot! Skiing is my perfect holiday and Croatia, Italy and the Greek Islands are among my favourite holiday destinations.
