All about Claire
I had always loved travelling with family and friends, but it was only after seeing a Travel Specialist vacancy, after a long career in retail, that I had any inkling that the travel industry may hold the position for me. Eighteen years later, I can safely say that I was right! My love for travel has grown and grown, and I’ve not looked back.
During my career with Miles Morgan Travel, I’ve been honoured to take the mantle of Australia Specialist for the Nailsworth branch. I’ve been lucky enough to visit four times, with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter living in Sydney. It’s a beautiful city, with an iconic skyline, and you’re never far from a beach to call your own, if you know where to look! I’ve also explored Australia’s many wonderful landscapes by fly-drive and would say that Australia has truly become my passion, to visit and to book for customers too!
Family visits aside, I can’t help but adore Greece – both the mainland and her islands. I particularly loved Skiathos – it’s simply beautiful, offering the charm of traditional Greek hospitality, food and views. But don’t tell anyone: it’s not a tourist hotspot yet, and it’d be wonderful to keep it that way! Further afield, I’m lucky enough to have visited Dubai, the Maldives and Mauritius – a variety of fantastic adventures, with an exceptional standard of accommodation and dining. A real treat: perfect for celebrating a special occasion.
In contrast, I’ve always loved a fly-drive! America, Australia and Canada are incredible destinations for keen drivers. There’s so much freedom in driving wherever the wind takes you, and in finding the special and unexpected, tucked away off the beaten track. A particular favourite of mine was the Rocky Mountaineer – it’s such an adventure, and I couldn’t recommend it more!
Looking for your next your adventure? Give me a call or find me in the Nailsworth branch. I’d be more than happy to help tailor the perfect holiday for you.
Customer reviews of Claire
Well, so far I have only booked my holiday but that experience was excellent. Really friendly reception, a lovely cup of tea and I and my friends had great fun. More importantly, Sarah listened carefully to what I wanted and made sure that my needs were addressed. Claire was also there and gave me the benefit of her knowledge of the area I shall be visiting, which helped to inform my choices.

I just wanted to write and thank you for organising our “trip of a lifetime” to Australia, via Hong Kong. It is somewhere we never thought we would go and now can’t believe it is all over! All the arrangements went very smoothly and we stayed in some really beautiful hotels. All we need to do now is decide where to go next and ask you to book it for us so we have something to look forward to again.
– Pete and Ruth C
I had a very good holiday in Wales, weather stayed dry although dull at time. Hotel was very good and everybody was very helpful, food very good and all the people on the coach very friendly and helpful, driver likewise. Thank you for your excellent arranging for me.
– Mrs A Mitchell
Just to say thank you ladies especially Claire for our recent holiday to Mauritius and Dubai. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish and the advice you gave on where to stay was spot on- that is why we like coming into you so that you can speak face to face and get great recommendations. An absolute amazing holiday filled with so many happy memories and pictures!
- Mrs Bowen
Thank you for the welcome home letter which we got when we returned home from our Tenerife trip on Sunday (after a detour via Newcastle because of the snow on Saturday night!) This is just a note to say thank you and well done on recommending such an excellent hotel – it was just as you said it would be, and we were very impressed with the facilities, the location and the food and service. All in all, an excellent holiday and once again, you proved your worth as a source of guidance as well as all the booking arrangements – so thank you!
