Top advice from a travel expert as Joanne marks 15th anniversary

Ross Crawford 14th Oct, 2021

A REDDITCH-based travel expert who goes the extra mile to create personalised holidays for her clients, is celebrating her 15th year in business.

Local woman Joanne Kemp has been managing her own travel business since October 2006, with the support of independent travel company Travel Counsellors.

This week she will be raising a glass to celebrate 15 years of success.

In 2006, after a 15-year career as a travel agent in the Kingfisher centre with Lunn Poly and Thomas Cook, Joanne started her own leisure travel business from her home-based office in Smallwood.

“It’s been a challenging time for travel over the last 18 months, however now more than ever, I believe customers need my trusted, professional travel advice to support them as travel restrictions ease,” she said.

“Despite the complexities around overseas travel, I am truly enjoying seeing so many more of my customers going abroad, making the most of their well-deserved breaks and sharing their experiences with friends, family and on social media,” said Joanne.

“I think all my customers really value the personal, caring service and attention to detail I offer, which you will never receive when booking online.”
