My name is Rachael Higgins, and I am your Personal Travel Counsellor based between Kiltimagh and Claremorris in Co Mayo. I have enjoyed working in the travel industry for over 18 years now, and I love being part of the Travel Counsellors Worldwide team.

I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to visit many destinations including Australia, the Far East, Africa, America, Canada, the Caribbean and of course Europe. I love cruising, and have personal experience of many of the major and most popular cruise liners, so if you are thinking of cruising just give me a call - I would love to help you!

I enjoy being a Travel Counsellor, as I can offer my clients a very personal service with flexibility and choice. Being part of Travel Counsellors means I have access to award winning technology and better buying power than I have ever experienced before. I also have access to all of the big travel industry names as well as lots of niche products at better rates than anyone else. So along with my exceptional service I can also offer great value for money! In the current economic climate, its good to know that Travel Counsellors are licensed and bonded in Ireland with the Commission for Aviation Regulation.

I specialise in honeymoons, cruises, family holidays and worldwide trips and would love the opportunity to organise your perfect holiday experience.

Because of my expertise and reliability I have many loyal Business Travel clients and I am confident that I can fulfil your company’s travel requirements efficiently and economically.

Customer Story 1

Rachael took away all of the stress I usually feel when planning a trip. She was always available to answer my questions and I couldn't recommend Rachael highly enough. Very professional and also very friendly and lovely to talk to. I went on a Norwegian cruise and I was really impressed with the service that Rachael provided.

Customer Story 2

Rachael helped us decide on our honeymoon in Vietnam! She was so patient and knowledgeable in replying to my countless emails along the way, nothing was a problem for her and she checked every hotel I asked in order to bring our trip in on budget. She even managed to beat a quote we received from a leading competitor. I have since referred 3 more honeymooners who have all booked with Rachael.

Customer Story 3

I contacted Rachel about eight months before I went on holidays. She was always professional and as things changed she was very accommodating. She took all our needs and came up with a very good holiday. I would have no hesitition in going back when we plan our next holiday. All the relevent information was given and I would know that we would be going to a place that was suitable and safe.

Pangkor Laut and Kuala Lumpur

Rachael's blog, 14/03/2012

From the moment we checked in with Emirates the holiday of a lifetime started. We were lucky enough to travel business class, which was immensely comfortable and the service was second to none. This was a whirlwind trip so the extra comfort was a huge bonus.

Although not my first time in Asia, this was my first visit to Malaysia, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. We touched down in Kuala Lumpur airport and were transferred by luxury minibus to the ferry port for our short crossing over to the private island of Pangkor Laut. Our ferry crossing...
