Tell us what you want from your holiday

What would make a perfect holiday? Tell us who is going with you, what airport you'd like to fly from and any other details we may find useful, such as if it's a special occasion.

If we need to get in touch, when is the best time to give you a call about your holiday?

Where's the best place you've ever stayed?

When visiting the Cook Islands I was lucky enough to enjoy a night at Pacific Resort Aitutaki. The service was outstanding and the view from the room over the beach and crystal clear sea was stunning. Enjoying breakfast from the main restaurant with panoramic views across the lagoon was the perfect start to the day.

What's your oddest travel moment?

I was staying with a friend who lives in Dubai and she arranged for some of her Emirati friends to give us a tour of their land and camels. We went quite far into the desert and were surprised to see a line of quad bikes waiting for us when we arrived. Having never been on one before I was quite nervous, let alone when we saw how big the sand dunes were! They took us up some of the largest sand dunes and the views were just amazing. We finished the day by cooking a traditional meal on a fire and enjoyed the sunset before riding back to our car.

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

When I was travelling around New Zealand I spent some time in the coastal town of Kaikoura which is a great spot for whale and dolphin watching. I joined a dolphin swim cruise and was lucky enough to swim with a pod of about 200 Dusky Dolphin in the wild. You’re really able to interact with them as they’re so playful. The tour guides tell you to sing and make noises underwater and swim around in circles, they really love it!

What are your suitcase essentials?

I always take a mini notepad and pen as you never know when you might need to take down directions or place names to remember where you’ve explored that day.

Where's next on your wishlist?

I have spent some time travelling around Thailand and Singapore and it really wetted my appetite for Asia. I would love to explore more of the region and in particular Japan as I really enjoy immersing myself in different cultures, trying new food and seeing how other people live.

Lizzie’s love for travel started from a young age with family trips around Europe and later when she decided to live in New Zealand for part of her University studies where she worked at a hotel in the Bay of Islands. Since then she has visited Dubai, Singapore, Thailand, New York, Barbados, Antigua, Cook Islands and enjoyed various city breaks around Europe. She knows how important holidays are and that getting every detail perfect is essential.
