Travel mum’s hopes after firm TV launch
A TRAVEL agent hopes the launch of her company’s first TV advertising campaign will give her business a boost.
Anita Devonport, of Fieldbank Road, Macclesfield, is a franchisee of independent travel company Travel Counsellors, which has more than 850 staff running businesses from home in the UK and another 550 overseas.
She runs her personalised travel service from her home where she lives with husband Jamie and children Charlotte, 13, and Thomas, 10.
Anita has more than 20 years of travel experience working in Alderley Edge and last year decided she wanted to work from home in Macclesfield.
The company she works for is running a national advertising campaign highlighting the personal service Anita and her colleagues provide. The advert is airing at peak times on ITV and features travel clips based on customer bookings to show the experiences that make a dream holiday.
Anita said: “It’s so exciting to see Travel Counsellors on national TV. As a travel counsellor my business is based on building relationships with my customers, getting to know them so that I can provide a really special and tailor-made travel service.
“The advert captures the essence of this and will help to make more people aware of what Travel Counsellors does and how we are really different to any other travel company.”
Anita says it’s her job to use her knowledge and expertise to tailor the perfect holiday to her customers.
She works from home whenever is most convenient for the customer – including during the evenings and at weekends.
Anita said: “I’ve worked in the industry for 20 years and have worked my way up from trainee to director of an award winning luxury travel company. I have a passion for travel, which began sailing around the world working on cruise ships, and I’ve gained extensive knowledge of many countries.”
