Is it time for a holiday break for you? Perhaps a stress free time relaxing on a beach, or exploring a colourful city, paddling in blue seas, shopping with friends, doing something adventurous or luxurious or just visiting family and friends.
Well you are on the right page, this is where I can help you to save lots of time and frustration wondering if you’ve found the right trip.
With over 20 years’ experience in the travel business I strive to create the perfect holiday to suit your needs with you at the centre of the journey. I will work with you to create a holiday that will not only be stress free but will create memories that will stay with you for a lifetime.
My passion is travel. I love nothing more than finding the perfect destination for my clients and I know that many will agree when I say "I put my heart into your holiday".
My expertise lies in cruising and having visited many cruise ships including Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises you can rest assured I will find the perfect cruise for you. River Cruising is another lovely option, getting out on the water to experience cities from a completely different angle.
I have a love of the USA and if touring around the Golden triangle or basking on the beaches of the Caribbean appeals to you then my experience will guide you on what will suit you best.
If a honeymoon or special anniversary trip is on your agenda, I can create some authentic itineraries, romantic experiences and ideas that will inspire and together we will design a one off trip just for you.
So please call, let’s chat and turn those dreams into reality.

Diane has made a number of travel arrangements for me and my family. Diane goes above and beyond in helping her customers. She's delightful to deal with, ensuring that everything was in order before we departed, and even checked up on us during our time away to make sure that everything was ok. You couldn't praise her enough. She was genuinely interested in our feedback from the trips and is fabulous to deal with on the phone. I had never had dealings with a Travel Counsellor before Diane and I really wouldn't go back to organising trips myself. Diane has the information, tips and manages to do great deals. She took an enormous amount of pressure of me, giving me a chance to relax before I ever left on holidays. Genuinely a delight to deal with and I will definitely be back to her.

Diane is fantastic. Once you give her a holiday location, the amount of work she puts in, comes back with so many choices that suits our budget. Have recommended her to my friends without any hesitation.

Diane was so helpful finding us our dream holiday. She made booking a holiday a stress-free, enjoyable experience. We told her what we wanted and what our budget was, she listened and found us an amazing deal. We're delighted with our holiday and the service we received and will be recommending Diane to our friends and family.

Travel Counsellors organised a holiday for my brother and I was referred onto Diane Bowman. Nothing has been an issue, she has helped me organise a holiday for myself and my husband. It was so easy and pain-free for me! Diane is currently helping me put together a family package for 2018. She is most helpful.

I found Diane to be friendly and prompt in her responses. I gave her a brief of what I was looking for and she brought back choices that suited perfectly. I would highly recommend her and will be using her services again.

In all my life booking holidays, I never met anybody so helpful and so professional. We were talking up to nearly 12 O’clock in the night. Any company is blessed having a person like Diane working for them and she seems to enjoy very much what she does. She is certainly a great ambassador and I would like to thank her.

Diane was a true professional. My travel arrangements were arranged to suit all my needs so quickly. Diane's job was not made easy as there are medical factors to be considered. Diane took all the stress and worry out of trying to plan a trip, she seemed to understand exactly what I needed and there were no complications of my travel plans that Diane could not address. She has a very warm and personal touch while also being extremely professional.I would highly recommend Diane for people who travel often or first time travellers, you could not find a nicer, more dedicated person in this role.

Diane is the most helpful and friendly travel agent I have ever met. My holidays are always just perfect from start to finish. Nothing is a problem to her, from the smallest question to the largest idea. Won't dream of booking with anyone else!

Great to deal with, she went through so many options and quotes before picking our honeymoon. Diane really did her best for us, could not be more helpful.

Diane was brilliant in planning our honeymoon. We had no idea where we wanted to go, what we wanted to do, how much of a budget we had and Diane sorted everything for us. Nothing was a hassle to her. Within minutes of sending an email there would be a reply or phone call responding. Diane pays huge attention to detail and is very friendly and efficient to deal with. We're now very much looking forward to our honeymoon knowing everything is sorted and we just have to sit back and relax!

Diane was terrific to deal with. We have travelled a lot and we wanted a honeymoon tailored to suit us and not a standard package. We are thrilled that Diane was able to do this for us. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Sri Lanka, the Pearl of the Indian ocean as it’s known locally. I would describe it it a country of colour, character with oodles of spirituality! From the moment I stepped off the plane I knew this was going to be a beautiful surprise. Flying with Turkish airlines for the first time, I was very impressed with the service, the food and comfort. For those who would like to upgrade to business class, access to the award winning Istanbul business lounge is included. Colombo is home to the international airport, a city that is growing...

With so much to see and do, this will satisfy many needs. I fell in love with the colour of the sea instantly. It’s a blue like I'd never seen before, breath-taking, sparkling in the beautiful sunlight. We arrived with Ryanair in the midday sun. The flight was pleasant. It takes a lovely flight path over the Alps and you are able to see the snow-capped mountains far below. Malta airport is very small and easy to navigate. We had a transfer organised and our driver was waiting for us with our name on a...

We stood on the Sanctuary of Demeter, at 5.30 in the morning. To one side of us was Mount Etna, the sun rising up from behind the hill creating beautiful shadows on the valleys below. To the other side of us the jagged castle that towers above Enna, and protects her in its arms like a comforting mother. There was a little band of mist sitting in the ridges. Beyond this were the magical views of the far off mountains and beautiful little roads winding around the edge of them. Enna province is special indeed. First of all, it is...

Stiflingly hot in June, July and August but cooler and mostly dry for the rest of the year. It’s hardly the weather that will bring you to Las Vegas. The attractions lie indoors, from the bright lights of the casinos, where air is cool and clear to the extravagant riches and architecture. I had to experience this magical world for myself and I was glad I did. Rising up from the desert like a neon lit mirage, Las Vegas took my breath away. From the moment you step foot off the aircraft you are engulfed in the electric atmosphere....
