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?

In my opinion, there is nowhere quite as breath-taking as the Maldives. To jump on a speed boat after a long flight and breathe in the fresh sea air and the sun on your skin as you’re being whisked to a pearl drop island in the middle of the sea is incomparable. It really is the only place in the world where the rule of ‘no shoes, no news' applies. The room I stayed in overlooked the sparkling waters and I fell asleep to the soothing sound of the sea. The personal outdoor jacuzzi was blissful. Snorkelling in the Maldives was amazing and within ten minutes of being in the sea, I had a turtle swimming alongside me. It truly is a place that words can’t describe and pictures can't capture!

What's your oddest travel moment?

My flight crew and I had arranged a fundraising activity for a charity called Dreamflight. Our aim was to abseil down Table Mountain in Cape Town. We had organised the abseil for the day after arriving to give us time to recuperate after the flight and have some Dutch courage the night before. However, after checking the weather before departure it had changed and the infamous ‘tablecloth’ was due to cover the mountain on the day of the abseil but that wasn't going to stop us. Instead, the day we arrived we ventured up Table Mountain in order to throw ourselves down again. We had people watching us, rather than the magnificent view, and applauding once we walked back to the base. A truly bizarre, surreal and amazing moment

Have you had a perfect travel moment?

After visiting Cape Town for the second time I decided I wanted to have a new adventure and began my journey along the Garden route. I had done quite a lot of research and was very interested in seeing a different side to South Africa’s beauty - I was certainly not disappointed. I had been encouraged to visit a private game reserve called ‘Botlierskop’ near Mossel Bay to ‘see’ the Lions. By "see" I assumed it would mean watching the majestic creatures from afar, however I was privileged enough to walk alongside them. These animals are not drugged, caged, tranquilized, collared or mistreated in any way. They are brought to the reserve from zoos and farms that are unable to care for the fantastic animals.

What are your suitcase essentials?

There are the three P’s you certainly can’t go without- Passport, purse and paperwork. That being said I will always have a set of headphones too! Whether they’re for watching a movie or listening to music you can always keep yourself occupied and get those holiday vibes even mid-way over the Atlantic on a flight.

Where's next on your wishlist?

There is still so much of the world to see but I’m desperate to go to New Zealand. I want to see the incredible unspoilt scenery and diverse environments from jagged glacial mountains to long sandy beaches ; I hear it’s a feast for the eyes. I love the Lake District so I can only imagine that on a much grander scale. Lots of my favourite wines also come from New Zealand so it would be rude not to go and try them in their natural habitat.

Zara lived in Marbella , Spain, for 10 years from the age of 7. She was schooled at an International School so interaction with different nationalities and cultures has been part of her life for as long as she can remember. Travel is in her blood and in her opinion, nothing is more exciting than having a new adventure. Zara took exploring to the next level and worked as cabin crew visiting an array of exciting destinations. Some of her favourites included the Maldives, Barbados, Cape Town, San Francisco and Mauritius. Her passion for travel and the desire to give excellent customer service is what is her driving force. Her quote to live by is “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us”.
