In what year did you start working for Fred.\ Holidays?

I started working for Fred. Olsen Travel in 1997 and joined Fred.\ Holidays at head office in 2014.

What is your particular area of expertise?

Between 2005 and 2012, I managed cruising as a whole, so I’m quite knowledgeable in that field. But I also enjoy putting together package holidays.

Which countries have you visited?

Where haven’t I visited! I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Australia and the Canadian Rockies. I’ve been on a cruise around Alaska with Princess Cruises. I’ve been to: Bermuda, Las Vegas, Singapore, Mexico, Mauritius, Cyprus, Majorca, Hannover, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam, La Gomera… I’ve also been on many Caribbean cruises. I’m very well-travelled.

What would be your dream holiday destination?

I’d love to go on a safari in South Africa; I think that would be awesome. To be able to see elephants and giraffes in their natural habitat is a real dream of mine.

Describe your favourite cruising experience

As previously mentioned – I’ve been on an Alaska cruise with Princess Cruises. That is my favourite overall cruising experience but, food-wise, it has to be Regent Seven Seas. I was lucky enough to sail on board Seven Seas Navigator and the steaks served on board were out of this world… And I’m not really a proper meat-eater.

Describe your favourite Christmas market experience

Berlin is my personal favourite. I haven’t been to many Christmas markets in truth, but with over 40 markets to explore, there really is something for everyone.

Describe your favourite summer land-based holiday

The Hotel Jardin Tecina is fantastic. I would describe it as a tropical paradise within Europe and it really is so beautiful and peaceful. I was last out there a few years ago, but since then they have added new restaurants along the promenade and the lush green golf course is really special.

What would you recommend for families?

If you’re seeking a theme park experience in Europe, I would thoroughly recommend both Europa Park and Eftelling. Both of these provide fantastic value and there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

What would you recommend for couples?

Mauritius is lovely. It’s very romantic and ideal for couples seeking tranquil beaches and beautiful scenery.

What makes Fred.\ Holidays different to other tour operators?

One thing we offer, which most other operators and agents do not, is rail-based holidays. This really gives us an edge and allows our customers to enjoy a higher sense of flexibility. We have the ability to tailor-make holidays to the customer’s individual needs.
