It's Nice To Meet You

Based between Brighton and Dublin, I have over 19 years’ experience working for some of the most respected travel companies in both the UK and Ireland ( Now working as an independent consultant with the Travel Counsellors Group; a global organisation of 1900 expert travel professionals, supported by almost 400 Head Office staff, operating in 7 countries, with an annual turnover of in excess of £650m.

Whatever the size of your organisation, I will tailor a bespoke travel service to suit the needs of your business.

CURRENTLY BOOKING ONLINE? We have access to corporate, package and flexible airfares rarely available online and are often able to hold seats without commitment. With my service, you’ll have a personal travel PA, removing any stress from the process and reducing the need to use your team’s resources. We will always go the extra mile, not just taking an order without using our expertise to highlight savings where they exist. Cost savings, streamlined invoicing and reporting, 100% financial security, more flexible payment terms, 24/7 emergency contacts and our myTC travel app are just some of the reasons to ditch the booking engines and put your trust in us.

UNHAPPY WITH YOUR CURRENT PROVIDER? Working with a team of highly experienced Travel Counsellors allows me to manage even the largest of corporate accounts whilst ensuring our ethos and standards of personal service are never lost. We can also be available outside of traditional business hours. No mandatory contracts or management fees – use our service because we become like an extension of your team.

SPECIALIST TRAVEL? Complexity is our strength. Whether you have accessible travel requirements, are looking for a phenomenal incentive prize, or are planning a complex group trip, you’ll be in safe hands. Our experience includes working with international and professional sporting teams, arranging large and challenging group travel, planning exciting retreats and fitness adventures (e.g. Base Camp Everest), and booking reward, recognition and team-building trips.

HOLIDAY CLUBS - supporting businesses with their employee benefits package. Our team also specialises in leisure travel and as an added benefit can assist your staff with their personal holiday plans. Incentive ideas to subsidise personal travel or how to make the most of annual leave, are just some of the ways in which we can collaborate with your HR team.

There are no limits to what we can arrange for your team. To find out more, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My corporate testimonials

Sent by Noj Hinkins

I have been using Robert to organise my travel for the last 6 months and he is the best travel organiser I have come across. Every time I travel he has not only booked me on the right flight, but has reserved me my preferred seats and if they are not available has made the decision I would have made when looking for alternatives. The same with hotel requests. He then sends out a clear one-page itinerary which is great for someone who is in a different country each week and can lose track. It gives me such peace of mind when I know he is on the job. The person who organises my logistics is highly experienced in this area, having worked with numerous companies over many years and she too agrees he is the best in the business.

Literally could not be happier. Rob takes all my problems away when it comes to business travel and is very agile and accommodating around my ever changing schedule. 10 our of 10 with bells on.

Using Rob and Travel Counsellors takes that ‘back-and-forth’ out of organising trips abroad with a team. I’m not a logistics specialist, yet my job entails a lot of logistical managing so leaning on Rob’s expertise is critical for us as we can focus on sporting matters such as performance. Rob is always so accommodating and really understands what it is we need; then takes it from there! We just have to show up at the airport on the first day. This year I used the app for the first time and didn’t think it could get any easier. Having all our tickets, references, any outstanding invoices and booking details in one place right at your fingertips, means no more scanning through emails at a hotel check-in desk for your reference number! I would highly recommend using Travel Counsellors for group and sport bookings.

Everest BC complete and it wouldn’t have been an adventure without a dramatic finish! Due to extremely bad weather we were all stuck in Lukla Airport (the most dangerous airport in the world 3000 metres high). Commando style thanks to Rob we all got a helicopter out of Lukla to Kathmandu safely! Massive thank you to the guys at Travel Counsellors for pulling this off for us!

During my past 2 decades in international business - I've engaged with several "travel agencies". Some delivered a "good" service, some a "fairly acceptable" service, and one delivered an "over the top" service. As a frequent traveler - you tend to forget to book a hotel, you forget to book a car rental - flights get cancelled - weather conditions mess up your travel schedule. What makes the difference at these times is the people you deal with. Whatever time of the day - whatever day in the week, TC and Robert have been ready to help - always with a smile - always ready to "think along". If he's on holiday - he makes sure his colleagues (who are equally as dedicated to their job/customers) are ready to jump in when and where needed. Rob is one of those guys that manages to make my job "easy"... he takes away potential anxiety - he's got my back.
