I set up Platinum World Travel to give clients a personalised service and holidays that are built with only their requirements in mind. I have 18 years experience in the travel industry after studying HND Business, Travel & Tourism in Sussex, before spending 6 years overseas as a holiday rep. On my return I started putting together bespoke and tailored itineraries back when everyone was still doing "package holidays". I've been in management for the last 5 years as a Project Manager & Store Manager. Over the last 18 years I've worked with big travel companies such as First Choice, Thomas Cook, STA Travel, Tailor Made Travel, Titan Tours, SAGA and InsideAsia Tours.
I am IATA trained which gives me direct access into airlines Global Distribution Systems and allows me to make realtime bookings directly with the airlines. Many travel agents will use a "Consolidator" to access their fares which comes with additional charges, and I can avoid those charges and pass the savings on to you.
I am certified by numerous tourism boards to sell holidays to their countries such as Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, South Africa and Japan to name but a few. I've travelled extensively across the world which gives me on the ground destination knowledge to ensure your holiday is tailored exactly round your own needs & requirements.
All my clients get 24/7 support from me or my wonderful support team. Things do go wrong on when travelling and my 18 years experience both in travel planning and on the ground means I can react quickly and ensure your holiday continues smoothly with little disruption as possible.
Holidays are expensive, long gone are the days when you could get a weeks All Inclusive Holiday for £99pp. It's a serious financial investment and you should make sure that you have a travel professional on hand who has the skills, knowledge and experience to cater to your requirements.
Please feel free to contact me anytime for a chat or meet me for a coffee to discuss how I can make your holiday dreams become a reality.
My career in travel began at the tender age of 19 where I studied Business, Travel and Tourism at college. Then began a long and varied career which has taken me across the world! I’ve spent 6 seasons as a holiday representative working in stunning resorts such as Greece, Cyprus, Menorca, Canary Islands and Mainland Spain. A summer spent at Gatwick Airport then called before my travel planning career began.
For the last 10 years I’ve been putting together tailor made itineraries for both leisure and corporate clients to all four corners of the globe. I have travelled to stunning countries such as Australia, South Africa, Canada, USA, Asia and Europe. I’ve also spent three months out in Arizona, USA on secondment for a travel company.
For the last 8 years I have been living in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, right on the Three Shires border, with my partner and a growing menagerie of animals! It’s a prime location for me to be able to get out and meet my clients.
I am a qualified Canada and Australia Specialist, certified by the relevant tourism boards. For me, there is no greater pleasure in putting together my clients dream trips, whether it be a UK break, a cultural sightseeing holiday, recharging your batteries in the glorious sunshine right through to a tailor made itinerary across the world. No matter what your holiday requirements are, I would love to share my passion for travel and destinations across the world – so please feel free to give me a call or send me an email so we can begin planning your next journey.
