“To travel is to live.” Hans Christian Anderson
My name is Clare and I am a Travel Counsellor based in Cape Town. Thanks to technology I can assist with your travel arrangements wherever you are in the world and at any time that suits you.
I recently relocated to Cape Town with my husband and son after having lived in East London for most of my life. Distance is something I am not unfamiliar with as I spent a few years living in the UK and have close family living in the USA, Australia and Germany. I therefore know how hard it is to live thousands of miles from loved ones and helping connect families is one part of my job that I truly love.
With over 17 years of experience working for airlines and large Travel Management Companies, I have had the privilege of visiting over 30 amazing destinations across the globe including the USA, Namibia, Europe, Indonesia, Mauritius and Russia. Although the list is long, it is never long enough and there are still many more places on my bucket list – Alaska and Norway being right at the top!
As a Travel Counsellor, I am backed by a global business that is fully accredited and offers 100% financial protection. I have more than 1,900 colleagues around the world allowing me to provide my clients with local knowledge that can make all the difference to their travels. I am also available 24/7 for any travel emergencies.
I love every aspect of my job, from helping you choose the perfect destination to planning all the finer details and then hearing all about your adventures on your return. Travel is what I live for and giving my clients the best experience from beginning to end is what I do.

I look forward to becoming your personal Travel Counsellor and helping you find your next magical destination.

With all the hype about the USA Presidential elections, I’ve been reminiscing about my trip to the United States a few years back. I spent 5 amazing weeks visiting family and touring through some incredible cities, these are just a few of the highlights from my trip. New Years in Times Square New York, the city that never sleeps – this could not be more accurate and especially on New Years Eve! I got to see performances by Charlie Puth & Wiz Khalifa, Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan all in one night with the final performance of the Ball drop at the...

Clare is by far the best, most efficient and knowledgeable travel agent I have ever used. She was there 24/7 (and I mean 24/7!) to guide me through every step of the process with her clear and calm mannerism. I highly recommend using Clare for all your future travel plans. Thank you once again Clare for all your help xx

I would just like to commend Clare from Travel Counsellors for an amazing experience. She was very professional and on the ball, nothing was a problem. She really went out of her way to sort everything out for my trip and it was done without delay. Thanks very much for everything!

Dealing with Clare makes for hassle free travelling - whether it's local or international, she is our go to person. She is totally on top of her game and very mindful and knowledgable in all areas, especially travelling with children or as a family - I would not think of travel without having her sort it for me!

Your service made me more than smile and has influenced me to refer you to a large amount of friends that I have. My last trip organized by you to the Northern Cape was awesome and gave my wife and I some unforgettable experiences. You are a wizard at searching out the most awesome B&B's
