What is your favourite thing about your job?

My favourite thing about my job is the vastness of the holidays / breaks we sell. From city breaks to family beach holidays, worldwide tailor-made itineraries and tours, cruises to destinations all around the world, ski holidays to theatre breaks! We are lucky enough to be able to offer and sell customers everything!

Where would you like to visit next?

I am particularly keen to visit the Norwegian Fjords on a cruise as this is a cruise itinerary we sell a lot of to customers. Also, I feel like it looks like a particularly beautiful part of the world without having to travel too far.

What has been your favourite holiday, which you have booked for a customer, that you would love to take yourself?

A favourite holiday I have booked for customers was a self drive touring holiday around Canada for a family in a motorhome. This was for a family with two children similar ages to mine and was something really different for them to do over the summer rather than a beach holiday to one destination. On their return they came back to me to show me photos and tell me about all their experiences!

My Favourite Memory

My favourite holiday destination I have visited so far is the Maldives! I really do enjoy relaxing beach holidays and the Maldives are idyllic and so relaxed.

's Top Tips

1) Book through Fred Olsen Travel! The agents will help with all the extras even after the booking process such as visas, printing vouchers and online check in.

2) Research things you may want to do in your holiday destination before travelling. This can save time and disappointment and Fred Olsen agents will also be able to offer advice on this as between them they have travelled to most destinations!

3) Be organised in advance and always allow more than enough time or consider staying over the night before your holiday to avoid delays.

's Cruise Tips

Top tip for a cruise holiday would be to enquire with Fred Olsen Agent into the different brands of cruise lines before committing! There are so many different cruise lines which all offer different things and facilities and different styles of cruising so really believe there is a cruise line for everyone!
