Welcome to my page!


I am very excited to introduce Vash - The Holiday Village as the one-stop local provider for all your travel needs and requirements.

Since joining the travel industry over 28 years ago - first working in retail at Thomas Cook for more than 24 years, and then with Kuoni for 4 years - I have not looked back.

My globetrotting adventures have taken me all over the world, so customers can benefit from my first-hand knowledge. India, USA, Sri Lanka, Maldives, UAE, South Africa, Kenya, the Far East, Caribbean, and the many corners of Europe are just some of the destinations I have visited.

Additional trips include river cruising in Myanmar (you never tire of seeing countless pagodas) and voyages between Spain and Portugal, leisurely passing numerous vineyards on the beautiful Douro River. Witnessing the magnificent icebergs whilst cruising in Alaska was equally amazing as I never pass up on a chance to connect with nature.

Unsurprisingly, wildlife expeditions are my ultimate favourite; from pandas in China to the “Big Five” in South Africa; and from seeing elephants in Kenya to gorilla-trekking in Uganda. I will never forget those gentle giants in their natural forest habitat, and hope your next journey will be just as inspirational!

The most rewarding aspect of working in the travel industry is helping others fulfil their travel dreams. I can’t wait to help you plan the experience of a lifetime, no matter the occasion or type of holiday you are looking for. As a member of the Holiday Village team, I will ensure your journey is memorable and seamless, with every detail taken care of.

The Holiday Village is part of The Travel Village Group, an award-winning fourth generation family business, established in 1959! Booking your holiday with us comes with peace of mind for you and your family as we are fully ABTA (P6710) & ATOL bonded, providing 100% consumer protection.

I look forward to booking your dream holiday very soon.

We just got back from an amazing trip to Barbados. I would like to say that Vash was great. She got back to us quickly with any queries we had during the booking and right up to the day we left. She was very clear about all that needed to be done prior to travel. The fast track she arranged was amazing and the service when we got to the airport was outstanding. Thank you so much Vash for everything!! 😊 Holiday blues have certainly kicked in today

Just came home from the most amazing city break thanks to Vash. She got us the best deals and was very informative and helpful throughout. As this is the first holiday I booked on my own, I felt confident leaving it in Vash’s capable hands - she really knows her stuff and I would definitely be booking through her again. Thank you for recommending the most amazing holiday 🙂

Vash booked us the most wonderful city break- so friendly and always there if we needed anything. Vash was so knowledgeable with covid restrictions and entry requirements- she really knew her stuff. Vash helped us get a better deal too which I was extremely grateful for.

Vash was super helpful and understood exactly what we was looking for! She found us a perfect hotel that suited all our requirements. She’s been great at answering any questions or queries we’ve had during the countdown to the holiday and has taken a lot of stress out of the holiday planning! Will definitely be booking through her again! 🙂


I booked my holiday to Jamaica to go out on 24/12/21 but subsequently changed it to 2nd June 2022 due to the pandemic recently. I was so impressed with Vash who found me my dream holiday and then explained in detailed how and what covid test needs to be done before going and coming. My holidays are always booked with her as she deals with everything i.e transfer's, flights and all inclusive hotels so I don’t need to worry about anything but just to enjoy my holidays without any hassles. Also if I have any queries then I just call her and she would patiently and happily obliged. Even after the holidays booked she would make sure everything is okay and whether I need further support in anything. Her knowledge is incredible and she is a asset to your company.
