About me

Hi, I’m Carly – your personal travel manager.

There is nothing in this world that excites me more than travel. It’s a topic that instantly lights me up, whether it’s hearing someone’s stories, researching a new destination, booking a holiday for a customer, or travelling myself. I love sharing this passion with others.

As a personal travel manager, I take the time to get to know my clients. We’re all different, so it’s important to me that I work with you to uncover your personal tastes and a picture of what your dream trip looks like. Whether you’re travelling for work or leisure, I’m dedicated to taking the stress and guesswork out of your travel booking, saving you both time and money. I’m a perfectionist with each itinerary I create, doing everything in my power to ensure that your trip goes off without a hitch, and you’re blown away by your experiences. To travel sometimes means to encounter the unexpected, so know that I will be with you every step along the way. My service does not end when you receive your travel documents, instead I will be available to you 24/7 to deal with any unforeseen issues that may arise.


My Specialties

  • Due to my personal tastes, I have very much become the expert in Luxury Travel. Every year I aim to run a personalised, small-group tour to a bucket-list destination in the world. 2023 brings an all-inclusive luxury lodge experience for 10 guests in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia, and I’m currently taking expressions of interest for 2024’s trip to Antarctica! I am a member of the Signature Travel Network, offering you exclusive privileges in more than 1,000 of the world’s best hotels, resorts, lodges, villas, and spas in 90 countries and 450 unique destinations. If it’s luxury you’re after, I have the holiday for you.
  • I have built a large Corporate Travel client database over the years, becoming known for my reliability in managing the ever-constant, last-minute changes. Whether it’s for a group or individual, I’ll be there with prompt service and create the hassle-free travel you need so that you’re able to focus on your work. I am more than happy to work with your frequent flyers.
  • Africa has my heart. No other destination in the world makes me feel the feels Africa does. The safaris, the luxurious lodges, the people. It may seem like an intimidating destination to those who don’t know it, but my extensive travel of Southern and East Africa will ensure you’re in capable hands and have the holiday experience of a lifetime!
  • 17 trips and counting to North America have made me an expert in the region. I love it for the breathtaking scenery and warm hospitality, and I’d love to share my experiences with you. There’s something for everyone!
  • The holiday that brings everyone together – Snow Holidays! Group, family or couple, newbie through to expert, I’ve got you covered with accommodation, lift passes, equipment hire and everything in between. If there’s someone in the group who isn’t interested in snow sports, no problem! I’ll provide a list of experiences that are unique to the region to fill their days, from dogsledding to thermal spas.
  • European River Cruises would have to be one of my most booked holidays! Having done one myself, I can attest to the ease and the pleasure of waking up in the heart of a beautiful new destination daily and having nothing to worry about but which of the included tours I’m in the mood for, and how much I’m going to overeat. With so many ships int the market these days, there’s a river cruise for everyone, but it’s important to make sure you’re choosing the company that caters to your preferences, and that’s where I come in.
  • Whether self-drive, or with a small-group tour operator such as G Adventures or Intrepid, Adventure Holidays are so much fun to put together, and always where the best stories come from. Adventure travel comes in all forms these days, from back-packing to luxurious lodges, there’s something for everyone.
  • It was an Around the World holiday over a decade ago that developed my passion for travel and encouraged my move into the industry. I love the challenge of taking a complicated itinerary and producing a great value ticket. Let’s discuss what you’re looking for, and I’ll use my industry knowledge and airline partnerships to show you the best way to do it!

The above is a small snapshot of my experience, but certainly not my limit. If you can think of it, there’s a good chance I’ve booked it, and where I fall short on knowledge from personal experience, I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in my business partners.
