We also have excellent relationships with all our tour operators and hotels and invite post-holiday feedback from customers to help us improve our service still further.

As an ABTA travel agent, we abide by the rules and follow the ABTA code of conduct. We also have access to a group ATOL facility which means that when we create an air-inclusive package holiday for you we are able to give you the same financial protection as larger tour operators

I first started in the travel industry in 1982 as a tour operator offering reader offers through regional newspapers. My main product was tickets, travel and accommodation for London theatre, concerts and sporting events. The business ran for 10 very successful years before evolving into a retail independent travel agency. I found my knowledge of planning trips helped me look at the holiday market in a different way to just selling packages from a brochure. I would start by finding the best flights before adding hotels transfers etc and this often resulted in a more personalised product at a better price. This is still the way I work which ensures every client gets the best possible product and price for the holiday they choose.

Having worked in the travel industry for almost twenty years, I have a passion for travel and a love for the industry. I believe that my continued drive to develop my ability, is that you can never stop learning. The travel industry offers every scope for enhancing my knowledge for the benefit of my previous loyal and future clients. I am well-travelled and have visited some destinations including extensive road trips through the United States, South and North Africa, the Maldives and Mauritius, Middle East, the Caribbean, Australia, ski trips and Europe of course! I’ve sent clients to all these destinations and more. So the bigger the challenge, the more excited I am to achieve your requirements. I specialise in any kind of holiday, whether it’s a short city break or a high end luxury multi-centre holiday. Nothing is too much of an effort! On a personal level, I believe that patience is essential and listening to the customer is of paramount importance, in order to ensure every holiday, be it small or large should be memorable and amazing!

Ellyse Jacobs

Travel Consultant

I joined Top Choice Holidays 5 years ago and since then I have learnt a lot about the travel industry and am still learning about new destinations all the time. I love creating client's holidays that ensure all their needs are met to make sure they have the best holiday possible. I speak to every client after their holiday and find I am learning more about destinations from their feedback. I will never stop learning and that is what makes working in travel interesting and exciting. I enjoy travelling in both the UK and abroad and my favourite destination is the Maldives.

Kelly Simpson

Travel Consultant

I started my career in the travel industry 12 years ago straight from leaving school. During my apprenticeship I studied travel & tourism, from that point onwards I knew working in travel, meeting new clients & building relationships with those clients was the job for me. During my many years in travel I’ve visited some beautiful countries from South Africa, Greek islands, Spain to America and many more. My preferred destinations to visit are Turkey, Greece & Cyprus in the summer months for our family holidays as I’m an avid sun-worshipper but I also enjoy the local cultures, food & sightseeing. I perticulally like cruising as this is a great way to visit a number of destinations all in one trip as well as been great for families and couples alike. I pride myself on my giving each & every client the best possible service all whilst finding them the perfect holiday.
