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?

Maafushivaru in the Maldives is my favourite resort. It is the ultimate getaway and the seaplane transfers were out of this world! I have lost count of the amount of photos I have. We went on a snorkelling trip out in the middle of the ocean and saw a fantastic array of marine life including two sea turtles! My dream chill out holiday!

What's your oddest travel moment?

I was camping in Rotorua, New Zealand on route from Lake Taupo to Mount Maunganui for a surfing trip. While we were here, we paid to be stuffed into a giant inflatable ball, filled with a bucket or two of warm water and pushed down a hill! It only lasted 30 seconds or so but I was drenched from head to toe! We then drove on from here to Mount Maunganui dripping wet!

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

When I was in the Maldives the host of Kurumba took us on a Dolphin Sunset cruise. It took barely 15 minutes to reach the dolphins where we then sat on the bow of the boat with our feet hanging over the water, champagne in hand with 20 or so dolphins riding the wake of our boat! They were literally under our feet and they jumped and played in the sea around us as we listened to the sound of the Maldivian drummers playing on board!

What are your suitcase essentials?

I am a sun worshipper so flip flops and various factors of sunscreen! Oh and mosquito repellent as they seem to choose me to eat over everyone else!

Where's next on your wishlist?

There are too many to mention! Since working with Kuoni the list just goes on and on. I want to visit New York this summer, but my ultimate dream holiday is a safari. I love the idea of getting up early and trying to spot my favourite carnivores οΎ– cheetah and wild dog!

Rachel first took an interest in travel when she took a job in Greece for the summer when she turned 19. This started the travel bug and she later went on to work another three summers in Greece, New Zealand and Turkey. She was thrilled to be offered the job with Kuoni in August of 2013 where she has expanded her travel knowledge to the Indian Ocean, having recently visited the Maldives.
