Pauline has been involved in the Travel Industry all her working life. She worked for Airlines for many years early in her career which was a fabulous way to start in the industry. It introduced her to amazing destinations that she never thought she would ever visit. She learnt from the best the meaning of good customer service and the essentials of ensuring the client was always happy. When family came along in the early 80’s she decided to move to retail travel and utilise her amazing knowledge and passion in a different field.
In 1990 Pauline and her husband Chris decided to purchase what is now Travel & Cruise Belrose. Now, over thirty years later, they have grown this business to be a very successful award-winning consultancy. Pauline is delighted the business is so well respected by their many clients and indeed their industry peers.
Pauline has travelled extensively throughout her career. It would be impossible to list all the places she has travelled to. She has an absolute passion for travel. She is an expert in creating amazing holidays for the leisure traveler – be it Europe/Africa/Asia /North or South America, she has been there and can recommend and plan everything with ease. Her expert knowledge will ensure your holiday is exactly as you want. Pauline takes great delight in the planning of a client’s holiday and indeed loves to introduce them to new destinations. She has some clients who return from their holiday to ask “Where will you send us next year?” Her clients have great confidence in her meticulous planning, they know everything will be looked after and nothing will be left to chance. Pauline is absolutely passionate about what she does, she loves making her clients dreams come true.
There are far too many to mention them all as I have enjoyed so many. However I do love Italy and indeed France. I would also go on a private safari in Africa anytime I could.

Alison has spent her entire career working in travel and as she is approaching 60, that is a long time.
She has been with Pauline and the team at Travel and Cruise Belrose for almost 30 years, mainly working part time, juggling a family of 3 boys, who are now grown up, with work and travel.
She is very well travelled and loves nothing better than sipping a pina colada on a tropical island for relaxation. She has travelled extensively throughout the South Pacific, Hawaii, Queensland islands, New Zealand and Tasmania and Asia. Other exciting and culturally fascinating trips have included Sri Lanka, Kenya and South America.
Alison is passionate about active and eco friendly holidays. Cycling the Otago trail and walking the Queen Charlotte Track in New Zealand are some of the recent highlights. A cycling trip through the Cotswolds is the next adventure on the horizon when overseas travel is back.
Luxury cruising on small ships is also a favorite. The Regent Seven Seas from Rome to Monte Carlo is a trip of a lifetime and the Paul Gauguin for a week around the crystal clear waters of Tahiti a must do.
Alison loves to listen to your travel dreams and plan a well thought out and tailor made holiday for you. She is meticulous with detail and loves nothing better than a happy client recounting their travel adventures on their return.
