I’ve been on the road now for nearly 4 years and involved in the travel industry for many more before that – working alongside and as part of many world renowned travel companies and businesses, so it’s safe to say I know what I’m talking about when it comes to travel.
So I thought it was about time I offered a full and comprehensive travel planning service to help those who want their travels planning hassle free and allowing you to enjoy yourself and make the most of your travels!
If you find yourself asking any of these questions this is perfect for you;
Where do I even start?
How much cash will I need?
Geez how do I even save that kind of money?
How can I can from A to B?
What do I need to pack?
Stop The Stress
We all know planning a trip can be stressful – let alone a stint of long term travel or RTW trip! Trust me I’ve been there and done that! Let me help take the stress off your shoulders and use the knowledge I’ve gained through my own adventures to stop your plans becoming stressful.
You’ll be able to kick back and enjoy planning your own adventure…and more importantly jump on that first flight knowing you’re properly prepared!
Key things we’ll discuss and plan include;
- Budgetting and Saving
- Flight routes and destinations
- Key events and experiences
- Fears and apprehensions
Impartial & Honest
As your personal travel planner I’m impartial and using the knowledge I’ve personally acquired on the road and through my work in the travel industry. Sure I’ll be readily recommending places you can purchase flights and insurance or where to stay – but I’m not doing it because I’m getting paid to do so or have targets to meet, I only recommend services I truly believe are good and most of which I’ve used myself!
It’s advice from one traveller to another and the same recommendations I’d give my own friends and family.

FEATURES & BENEFITS;
Skype & Email Support
I’ll be on hand via email and Skype* throughout the duration of your planning package to chat through what you want to do and generally put your mind at rest. Travel is my passion and I’m happy to talk about all aspects of it – no question is a silly one!
Whether you really want chat about a particular country, fire me a quick off the cuff question or even if your parents want to chat through their worries about you hitting the road I’ll be there to chat your through everything.
Partnering up with EpicGapYear.com I can offer all of my travel planning customers exclusive discounts on all their experiences.
Many of these discounts are at least 50% of my travel planning packages so it’s a great way to get even more value from them!
Customised Planning Checklist
The internet is awash with travel checklists – you could literally spend weeks filling them all out and procrastinating over them! At the end of your planning package I’ll put together a personal checklist** tailored to everything we’ve discussed.
So you can easily see the key things you need to organise and only have to sort the things relevant to your own adventure, not just a generic trip.
Heaps of Ideas and Routes
Having worked in the travel industry for many years I have extensive knowledge about flight routes, airlines to take and ways to save money. We’ll chat through where you want to visit and I’ll piece together how to structure them and also a guideline on price so you won’t pay over the odds. In the last few years
I’ve flown over 60 flights on nearly 20 separate airlines – I certainly know how to get around the world!
Money Back Guarantee
At the end of my planning session and advice if you don’t think you got value for money I’ll happily refund your money.
I value the trust my readership have in me and I want to make sure everyone I help receives a fair and honest service.
