Jan Hollows

Senior Travel Consultant

I’ve worked in travel for 22 years, and have especially enjoyed the last seven years at Destina. Working for an independent travel company gives a much wider product range, the flexibility of tailor-made itineraries, and the freedom to use your own initiative – which means I don’t have to compromise when creating holidays.

Whether it’s a short city break, a romantic honeymoon or a once in a lifetime trip around the world, every holiday is a pleasure and privilege to plan and organise. Nothing is too much trouble when it comes to ensuring my clients enjoy their ultimate holiday, and I love making the seemingly impossible, possible!


Favourite Destination:

Sydney, Australia. The first time I saw the Sydney Opera House as I was crossing from Manly Beach to The Rocks took my breath away.


Most Memorable Travel Experience: 

Standing on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It’s much more remote than the busy South Rim, so you won’t have crowds of tourists spoiling the awe-inspiring views and atmosphere.


Three Must See Destinations:

Japan for its incredible history and culture. The bright lights of Tokyo are a thrilling experience and the impossibly pretty city of Kyoto is ‘old Japan’ at its best.

The Okavango Delta in Botswana for wildlife. It’s home to some of the world’s most endangered species including the cheetah, white rhino, black rhino, African wild dog and lion.

Egypt for its mysterious monuments. Combining a Nile cruise with the Valley of the Kings, the Sphinx and the Great Pyramids is the ultimate Egyptian adventure.


Top Travel Tip:

Start a new memory card with a selfie. Should you lose your camera, it’s an easy way to prove ownership – especially if a language barrier makes communication more difficult.
