Zoe Holmes
Senior Travel Consultant

When did you start working in the travel industry?

I started my career in travel and at Fred. Olsen Travel in June 1995, as a Saturday girl whilst still at college. 20 years on, I still love my job in the Colchester branch. Having worked my way up to Branch Manager, I am now a part time consultant and still as passionate as ever about travel!

What is your favourite thing about your job?

I love finding the perfect holiday for my customers and booking their dream holidays. I also love the fantastic opportunities we have to travel ourselves. I have been lucky enough to visit some amazing places in the world.

Where would you like to visit next?

I would like to do a Safari as it is something I have not done yet and a part of the world I have not yet explored.

What is your dream holiday destination?

I would like to visit the Seychelles, as I have always wanted to go. Being a busy Mum, I like to relax in luxury and be pampered!!

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

A 'Round the World' itinerary, flying first class and staying in luxury leading hotels of the World.

's Cruise Tips

My Favourite Memory

I have too many favourite destinations to choose just one, but I love the Indian Ocean, especially Mauritius and the Maldives. Both of which I have been lucky enough to have visited twice. I love the stunning scenery and white sandy beaches in the Maldives, which make you feel like you are in paradise. I love how diverse and friendly Mauritius is, with lots to do and see!
