Travel Counsellors LTD
I am with Travel Counsellors – a fully independent travel company based in Manchester (although, I myself am based in Great Ashby). Therefore I am a Travel Counsellor (TC).
There are approximately 1400 TCs in seven countries, and we have over 400 operators and suppliers. Therefore we are very influential within the industry (this helps us when we want something for our customers).
As mentioned above, we are a fully independent travel company. I have the whole market to find the best possible holiday for my clients.
My clients benefit from having their own TC - i.e. one point of contact right through from initial contact, to the day they return home. So in the event of any questions before during or even after travel, I will always be there for them. In addition, I have access to a Duty Office providing centralized back up to me - and therefore all our clients - wherever they are in the world – 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
I will create a competitively priced, bespoke holiday – based upon your precise requirements.
We fully protect 100% of our clients money against suppliers going bust – no ifs and no buts.
Many TCs have chosen to specialize in one particular area – business travel, leisure, cruise, etc. I myself have chosen to specialize in bespoke travel arrangements within the accessible travel arena.
As a Travel Counsellor, I always provide the best possible service to all of my customers, and this includes those requiring specialist mobility equipment.
I can guarantee assistance at the airports, specialist transfers, and disabled access rooms in resort. In addition, I can arrange excursions and attractions for you in resort.
I can also guarantee delivery of the following:- Wheelchairs, hoists, mobility scooters, commodes, bath lifts, shower chairs, walkers, standing electric hoists, profile beds, standing aids and much more,
to many city and holiday destinations around the world, on the date it is required. Naturally, if you prefer to bring your own, I can help organize the transportation too.
To demonstrate – may I ask you to take a look at this video. It features one of our clients, a young lady by the name of Nadia, and is just under 9.5 minutes long.
There are many other benefits going through Travel Counsellors for your next mini break or holiday, whether within the UK or anywhere else in the world. To find out more, please just drop me a line.
