Trainee Travel Consultant

When did you start working in the travel industry?

I started my career in travel at the end of July 2022 at Thorpe Travel.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

My favourite thing about my job is tailor-making dream holidays

Where would you like to visit next?

I would like next to visit California and New York - I wish to see the Statue of Liberty and go to Disney in California.

What is your dream holiday destination?

I have a bucketlist to choose from, but one destination I believe I must do is South Africa. This is because we are causing species such as the African elephant to become extinct and I am a passionate animal protector and believe animals should live in the wild and not be used in displays and shows.

What has been your favourite holiday, which you have booked for a customer, that you would love to take yourself?

South Africa - I would love to go on a game safari and see the big 5. I have recently this booked this as a tailormade. The customer will be going on a multi-centre where they are seeing land and marine animals which would be my dream.

What were you childhood holidays like?

My favourite holidays growing up was going to Tenerife for Siam Park and Loro Park.

What are the first three things in your case?

1) Suncream

2) Passport

3) Swimming costume


's Top Tips

Having a clear plan or itinerary to ensure you have no regrets coming home and understand that a budget can limit but not stop you from going.


's Cruise Tips

1) Go for the itinerary not the ship, as the ship can change but the itinerary can't!

2) Look at what the ship has onboard, will you be entertained or do you feel the ship has all the facilities you need to have a good time

3) Once you start a balcony there is no going down, I would always start at an oceanview and work your way up.

My Favourite Memory

Florida - DisneyWorld and Universal - I love the adventure and magic of the parks and this will always be special as I had my 21st Birthday whilst I was in Disney.
