Our Travel Experience

Andrea: Luxury Holiday & Wedding & Honeymoon Specialist

My specialties and expertise are in luxury destinations and Weddings & Honeymoons, multi-centre and longhaul trips. I love to travel and I love helping people arrange their holidays and take pride in suggesting hotels and destinations suited to the requirements of my clients especially hidden gems that are off the beaten track!

I love arranging weddings and honeymoons as it’s such a lovely honour to be a part of someone’s special time in their life.  I have organised everything from beach weddings to weddings in an ice hotel in Norway.  I take great pride in making sure all the worry and details are taken care of letting my clients sit back and relax and wait for their wedding date without any stress. I was also married on the idyllic Indian Ocean island of Mauritius at the fabulously luxurious Residence Hotel on the beautiful east coast, where they do everything possible to makes your dreams a reality,  so I have first hand experience of planning a wedding and reception abroad.

I have been in the Travel Industry for 14 years and have been very fortunate to have travelled extensively, throughout Malaysia, South Africa, India, America, the Caribbean and Mauritius to name but a few! I have extensive knowledge of wedding organisation overseas, including advice on legal requirements, assistance with choice of wedding package and location be it for a small intimate party or a much larger group. I also have first hand knowledge of luxury resorts, enabling me to give the best advice to my clients . This is especially helpful on room categories, and even sometimes down to requesting a certain room/suite number!!

    Excellence | Cancun | Reviewed 10 Jul 2014
    When booking our wedding and honeymoon, we had no idea where to go – we just knew we wanted somewhere special! Andrea was fantastic at advising us of the different places to consider – her knowledge of the countries and resorts was second to none. She then went on to tell us about a place called Secrets Excellence in Mexico where she had just returned from and we immediately knew it was the place we were going to get married. It was so nice to have a first hand account of the hotel and resort rather than just picking out of a brochure. Andrea had taken time to take ‘real’ photos of the hotel so we could get a better idea of what to expect. She also had really made an effort to get to know the wedding co-ordinator at Secrets to ensure her clients would receive a 1st class service when booking through Travel-pa. Oh wow, did we receive that! We’ve now had a taste of celebrity life and we want more!!Secrets was just as Andrea described and much, much more. Needless to say everything ran so smoothly, we want to do it all over again. We’ll probably keep going back each year for our anniversary………..The personal service you receive from Travel-pa really makes the difference. Andrea was always 100% flexible to stay late or to be around at weekends for us. She always took our calls and answered our e-mails promptly. We really couldn’t have asked for any more. We highly recommend Andrea!
