It's Nice To Meet You

Hello and welcome!

Thank you for visiting my web page.

My name is Nicci Hayden, I am a Travel Counsellor based in the wonderful suburb of Durbanville in Cape Town. I grew up in Johannesburg, but moved here with my family in 1998. I got married in 2008 and my husband and I have a two children, Logan and Lyla! We've moved into my childhood home and live life to the fullest each and every day.

Before becoming a Travel Counsellor in April 2009, I worked in retail travel for 5 years prior to that. What an unforgettable experience, it taught me so many things about people (clients and staff), the world and most importantly about myself. Nothing gives me more pleasure than getting to know you; discussing and planning your perfect holiday and afterwards hearing about how your dream holiday or business trip went.

During my 5 years I took over 2 different stores, turned them around and in the process I was awarded with the titles of Top Producer, High Achiever and 1 Million Dollar Elite Consultant.

I have travelled to: Zanzibar, Mauritius, Thailand (Phuket, Bangkok and Chiang Mai), London, New York, Orlando (Disney World), The Bahamas, Las Vegas, Namibia, Reunion and within South Africa. On my bucket list I have Alaska, Norway, South America & more of the East.

Being a Travel Counsellor has been the most incredible experience; I have invested more in my customers and I have built very special relationships with many of them and their families, and in doing so I received a nomination for the Best Newcomer in 2009. In 2017 and 2018 I received the Highest TC Score, voted by my clients, it's an honour being of service to my clients and being recognized for it means so much to me. As of 2018 I qualified as a Gold TC.

The biggest impact of starting my own business is that I now have more time to focus on learning about destinations, travel products and ways to add more value for money to all my clients travels. My work and life balance is far better, I managed to lose 32 kgs, buy my second home and enjoy more time with clients, friends and family.

The reason I chose the Travel Counsellors brand, is that I get to focus 100% on You, and Your dreams will become a reality and I will be the conduit. Service is my pride and passion. What sets me apart, is that I have the support to be available to you 24 hours a day, and with me EVERY trip is personal!

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page… Let us turn the page together.

I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Nicci Hayden
