Since my first Saturday job working for a Tour Operator despatching tickets, I knew I would continue with a career in travel. It’s something I have always been passionate about and over the past 20 years I have been lucky enough to visit some of the most beautiful places on Earth. Since joining Luxury Worldwide Collection, I have visited some amazing locations in Europe, Middle East and the Indian Ocean, and more recently, extended my knowledge of the Caribbean with a fabulous trip to Barbados.

One of my favourite destinations is the Far East, which I know intimately! I love it for the culture, the people, the beaches and its unique atmosphere. The Maldives are also very special to me. The resorts there represent the ultimate in luxury and I love the different shades of blue, from the sea to the sky.

I pride myself on being conscientious. I think my colleagues would describe me as fun and genuine. My passion is creating complex itineraries based on my extensive travel experience.

Travel has long been my passion. I began working in the travel industry in 1989 and have almost 30 years of experience including a few years working in Sri Lanka and Dubai. Having originally started in Corporate Travel, I moved to the leisure travel industry 15 years ago and have been a member of the EFR Travel team since 2006.

As I am originally from Sri Lanka, I will always have a special place in my heart for this destination. Sri Lanka is a beautiful country with diverse cultures, world heritage sights, wildlife, beautiful beaches and amazing people. However, my dream destination is the Maldives.  The turquoise blue water, white sandy beaches, beautiful marine life and amazing variety of food would take me back to the Maldives every time.

During my years in luxury travel I have had the privilege to stay in many luxurious hotels and to visit fascinating and interesting countries, most recent being China, Japan and Vietnam. Visiting diverse destinations broadens the horizons and it gives me great pleasure in sharing my experiences with my clients and making their dream holidays memorable.

Originally from India, my father served in the Air Force and as a result I was fortunate enough to travel the length and breadth of India and to some fabulous places around the world before moving to London 18 years ago.  This certainly gave me the travel bug and so working in the travel industry was an obvious choice as a career.

I have enjoyed working in the luxury travel sector for more than 20 years and joined EFR Travel in 2007. Over the years I have experienced some amazing destinations and I love sharing my knowledge with my clients. My favourite destinations include the many islands of the Maldives with their picture-perfect beaches and Bali, for its spiritual and varied culture and lifestyle.

Attention to detail is key to me and I take great care in creating the perfect holiday for my clients, right down to the smallest aspects of their trip! It gives me a huge sense of pride and achievement when my clients return from their holiday having had a wonderful time.

Travel has always been in my blood and travel whenever I can. My favourite experience was Brazil during the World Cup. Even though I didn’t get tickets for a game, the atmosphere meant it was a one in a lifetime experience.

I’ve been in the travel industry for 12 years specialising in the luxury travel sector for the last seven. Attention to detail is important to me and I take great pride in ensuring the finer elements of every booking are exactly as they should be.

Senior Administration

My passion for travel started when I was very young with my Grandad always telling me stories about the places he travelled and showing me the most amazing pictures. After leaving school I had my mind set that I was going to be an Air Hostess for Emirates and I was moving to Dubai.

Then I met my partner and he bought me a cat and that is where my plans changed…  I got my first job in a major tour operator in 2012 which helped me build my work experience and of course, build my all-important travel portfolio. I have been lucky enough to travel the world and my other big passion is cruising and I’ve been onboard most of the major cruise lines.

I don’t usually visit the same place twice but for some reason, Dubai keeps pulling me back – I think it’s the amazing cars and the sunshine which we don’t get a lot of in Scotland!

I joined the EFR Family in 2019 taking on the role of Senior Administration and look forward to assisting clients with all their pre-travel arrangements.
