  • Tina Rayment

    I had 8 years in a multinational travel agents but it wasn’t until I joined Westway Travel 11 years ago did I really appreciate that clients had so much more choice of holiday destination.

    Sprinkled across the Indian Ocean like precious gemstones are the 1200 islands that make up the Maldives, my favourite holiday venue. Unspoiled palm fringed soft white beaches and coral reefs that are abundant with marine life including turtles, manta rays and dolphins a perfect beach holiday.

    The Maldives has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful and romantic places on earth and I have been lucky enough to experience it twice.

  • Sarah Taylor

    Westway Travel has given me 13 years of experiences.

    Diverse cultures, new sounds, scents and sights, distinctive people, being off the beaten track, world famous sights, having a Once in a Lifetime experience, this is what I’m passionate about and what I’m most experienced in.

    The best travel experiences for me are those that you gain primarily from travelling further afield, such as watching the sunset over Ayres Rock, enjoying the local wine whilst watching the seals in Cape Town, gently paddling a canoe through the Amazon Rain Forest, the smells of the spice markets in Egypt and the sound of the crickets when the sunsets in Kerala.

  • Louise Kewell

    I started in the Travel Industry at the age of 16 and now 27 years later I am as passionate about travel as I was back then.

    I love to discover new places and over the years I have had the amazing opportunity to experience many exciting destinations from the Far East, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam to the beach resorts of the Caribbean and Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

    The one place that I will always hold dear to me is America – Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando, Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington and New York, they all have something unique and there is always something new to discover.

  • Lesley Smith

    29 years on in this wonderful profession I am passionate about many of the destinations I have had the pleasure of visiting.

    One of my most memorable trips Canada, riding along on the Rocky Mountaineer Train travelling across two Canadian provinces consuming the breathtaking scenery and wildlife is just unbelievable.

    So much more of this world to see, I think next on the hit list will be taking to a champagne toast overlooking the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas.

  • Gillian Whitten

    l started travelling at the age of 5 back in the 60’s with my Parents and the love of Travelling began then…

    My suitcase essentials are a travel kettle and t-bags because wherever I am in the world I love my cuppa in the morning plus Insect repellent and my Camera….to capture every minute of my holiday

    My perfect travel moment….

    I have had a few of these including watching a Giant Turtle lay her eggs in the sand in Oman, feeding Eagles in Langkawi, the view from the Twin Towers in New York but a helicopter trip over the Grand Canyon with my Husband and Daughter was “perfect”. We were all so emotional when we saw the Canyon and the stunning beauty of this natural wonder actually took our breath away. I don’t know what I expected but whatever it was it far exceeded my expectations.

    I have worked in Travel for 17 years now and will use my passion to enable you to have that perfect holiday experience.

  • Jenny Green

    Journey to the destination, the picturesque sightseeing and the friendly people along the way are just a few things that I enjoy about the holiday experience.

    We all have that iconic experience that makes the trip worthwhile and memorable and the best travel experiences for me were when I went on a Safari in South Africa.

    The amazing sights and sounds of the animals were incredible and something that will stay with me forever.

    Seeing the Great White sharks up close with nothing but a few metal bars between us left me with a very special feeling and watching hump back whales feeding was an incredible honour. No words can properly describe the feeling so standing in the icy air watching the Northern Lights dance above me in Tromso Norway. I’m still awe-inspired and flabbergasted with the experience.

  • Emma Wharram

    My 12 years working in travel has let me absorb not only my trips but those of my clients, I enjoy the post holiday stories as if they were my own.

    Travel for me is about being somewhere different from everyday life. Exploring the unknown, being somewhere that enriches your senses, somewhere you can create lasting memories. It’s about having time to stop, breathe and take it all in as well as experiencing new landscapes, cultures and meeting new people. It’s about places that make you say ‘wow’.

    Ask me about: Cruising, City breaks especially – Paris, Rome and Bruges, Norwegian Fjords, The Med especially Mallorca and Menorca, Cyprus, Turkey, New York, Sandals especially Antigua, Mauritius

  • Maxine Morris

    The joy of travel means you can immerse yourself into another world, a total departure from your everyday existence. Memories of places visited are like a photo imbedded into your mind forever which you can recall any time and relive the experience.

    I will never forget the thrill of chasing across the African bush on safari, stopping in a clearing to watch lions, elephants and leopards in their own environment. Sitting in a seaplane heading towards a beautiful island in the Maldives, flying over the hundreds of little islands below or my first glimpse of The Statue of Liberty which I’d only seen in films until then. Memories like this are irreplaceable and continue to amaze me.

    I’ve been making experiences like these with Westway Travel for 12 years.

    Ask me about: Florida, California, National Parks, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Boston, Amalfi and Ischia, Liguria, Mauritius, Maldive resorts, Majorca, Barbados; Tenerife; Kruger; Koh Samui, Bangkok.

  • Pam Payn

    I have worked in Travel for over 30 years. And for me it is those unexpected moments that travel brings which make it special and so rewarding.

    The wild cry of eagles circling high overhead in the Austrian Alps, wild dolphins leaping across bow waves, the magical northern lights in the Arctic winter sky, being an impromptu guest at a Greek village wedding, singing in an Indian Temple, drinking hot mint tea in a Bedouin Tent, watching the sun rise over the Red Sea I could go on and on. There are so many experiences to be found and enjoyed, but for me, the best treasures are the wonderful people that I have met along the way and have shared their lives albeit briefly.

    I have been lucky enough to travel far and wide but it is the serendipity of travel and those magical Kodak moments that remain with you forever that always get my feet itching to be off on another adventure.

    Ask me about: Cruising, Rome, Sorrento, Vienna, Salzburg, Budapest, Graz, Morocco, Crete, Sandals/Beaches in Jamaica, Gulet Cruises.

  • Nicole Roberts

    I have been working in travel for over 14 years and my passion for travel has increased every single year.

    I have a particular affinity to the Caribbean with its stunningly beautiful islands, two of my favourites being St. Lucia and Jamaica. Both of these islands have a vast array of activities and experiences that will take more than just a two week holiday to discover and some of the most diverse and stunning scenery:such as the majestic Pitons in St. Lucia and the incredible red-clay bauxite fields in Jamaica.

    My most memorable travel experience was getting married overlooking the azure Caribbean Sea, surrounded by loved ones and colourful, tropical flowers whilst listening to the gentle rhythms of a live calypso band – simply perfect!

    I believe that travel not only broadens your horizons, but also ensnares all the senses: from the sounds of chickens, car horns and market sellers in Goa; to the sights of golden temples rising above the clouds in Chang Mai; the tastes of freshly caught and cooked fish and Mediterranean vegetables in Symi; the salty smell of the sea on an ocean voyage across the Atlantic; to the luxurious feeling of an open air massage in a beach gazebo in Mauritius – travel literally gives you the whole world to experience.

    Ask me about: Antigua, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Tortola, Barbados, St. Maarten, Cuba, Florida, New York, Las Vegas, California, European City breaks, Balearics, Canary Islands, Disneyland Paris, Greek Islands, Egypt, Turkey, Goa, Thailand, Australia, Gambia, Cyprus, Weddings and Ocean Cruising.

  • Michelle Newton

    I’ve got 34 years of experience in the travel industry to guide you.

    Your alarm clock rings, it is dark and you feel alive and excited. Today you are going to experience the mystique of The Taj Mahal, ride in a hot air balloon over the Nile or be thrilled by an early morning game drive in The Kruger National Park.

    Drive through the amazing Rocky Mountains, come across bears and moose, marvel at Niagara Falls or watch the mahouts bring the elephants down to the river to bathe in the early morning in Thailand.

    They say travel broadens the mind and this is definitely my experience, meeting people from all walks of life of different religions and backgrounds and sharing their culture.

  • Cyan Willis

    I have been very fortunate to have experienced many parts of the world in my 29 years of working in the travel industry. Having enjoyed each and every destination I am able to offer and share my travel experiences. So if I can help please call me.

    I find it very difficult when asked ‘what’s my favourite destination’ because how does Sailing the Atlantic Ocean on the tallest full-rigged sailing ship, compare with a Mekong River Cruise or walking on the Great Wall of China?

    I have also experienced Trekking the Himalaya’s, swimming with the seals in Galapagos, the sights of Petra and the colourful markets of Guatemala to name a few.

    I take any opportunity to travel and expand my portfolio, although I must say Antarctica holds a special place in my heart and is the very top of my bucket list!

    Ask me about: Azores, Cape Verde, Jamaica, Grenada, St Lucia, China, Egypt, Jordan, Goa, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador & Galapagos, Boston, New York, Las Vegas, Memphis, Washington, San Francisco, San Diego, Nepal Kathmandu & Himalayas, Royal Clipper Cruise, Vietnam, Cambodia, Krakow, Lake Garda, Venice, Majorca, Jersey, Tenerife

  • Claire King

    The world is an amazing place and I have been fortunate to have travelled to many countries in my 30 years of being in the industry.

    From visiting family in Australia and having the opportunity to take a helicopter ride over the Barrier Reef to travelling down the Great Ocean Road then onto Thailand and seeing some of their beautiful temples in Bangkok to staying on the wonderful coast line of Khao Lak. Dubai offers the contrast of the desert and many vibrant hotels in the city and on the coast. I have to say one of my favourite destinations is the Indian Ocean with Mauritius offering fantastic hotels and what a destination for a wedding or special family celebration the Mauritian people are just so friendly and nothing is too much trouble then on the wonderful islands of the Maldives this is a must do on for any one that loves a beach and chill out holiday. I have cruised with a few different companies in the Caribbean, during the day you visit a number of different island then once back on board have a cocktail and then get ready for an evening of Excellent food and service followed by a variety of entertainment . If I can help make your dreams come true please give me a call.
