Specialising in luxury honeymoons and bucket list travels, I love creating a bespoke and personalised service for my clients. After 15 years in the travel industry I have plenty of experience in planning the perfect trip, whether you are looking for sun, adventure, luxury, safari or winter activities I can make your dream trip a reality, including all the extras you haven't even thought about yet. 

I appreciate that your honeymoon is a special once in a life time holiday and I know that that with my extensive knowledge and great supplier relationships worldwide, I can ensure your honeymoon is truly special and unique. Working with Travel Counsellors allows me to offer the highest level of personalised service which I believe is an important part of getting you the perfect trip. My aim is to make planning your trip as enjoyable and stress free as possible, as well as giving you complete piece of mind as we are fully licensed and bonded, so your money is safe.

It can be hard to find time to sit down and plan a honeymoon especially amongst the rest of the wedding planning, so I am available for a one to one service at a time convenient to you, including evenings and weekends, either in person, over the phone or a zoom video call. If you are stuck for any inspiration or just want to talk through a few ideas about turning them into a reality I’d love to have a chat with you.

Sarah was so helpful during our initial consultation she helped answer questions I had on a few different locations. She is well travelled and very knowledgeable. Once I had narrowed down where we wanted to go Sarah sent me various different options to look at. Nothing was too much trouble any questions I asked she responded promptly with the answers. She found us a great deal for our honeymoon and has been a real pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend for anyone searching for a travel consultant.

Sarah has been absolutely fantastic in helping us to plan our dream honeymoon to Japan. We wouldn't have known where to start but with Sarah, it was possible to organise a honeymoon even she was jealous of! Thanks so much Sarah!

This was just an excellent service from start to finish. It was so so easy. My counselor was Sarah Apelton and she was just so lovely. She really understood what we wanted and got us such an amazing honeymoon at an exceptional value. She is incredibly thorough and so accommodating and friendly. Her knowledge and experience are really broad with regard to travel. We trusted her from the get-go and couldn't recommend her and MYTC enough

Sarah is warm, friendly, and so accommodating. She takes on board all of the things that are important to you for travelling and goes above and beyond to achieve them for you. I have always planned my own trips and holidays but I am so happy that I chose Sarah to organise our honeymoon. I feel completely confident in her abilities to give us the holiday of a lifetime.

Sarah booked our honeymoon to Mauritius. She is a professional and has great knowledge of the travel industry. She is easy to communicate with and is very flexible. We had a few issues at the airport with the flight being delayed and were risking to miss our connecting flight. She was available to talk to all the times throughout our journey and calmed my nerves greatly. I would definitely highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for their dream honeymoon or family holiday. Thank you Sarah! With kind regards, Elena and Jonathan

Sarah organised an amazing honeymoon for us on the Greek island for 16 nights. Sarah was so helpful and friendly, she listened exactly to what we wanted and gave us different island and hotel options to pick and choose from. Our final package included 4 islands staying in 5 different hotels with ferry bookings and transfers. It took a lot of organisation and Sarah put a lot of effort in to ensure we got the best possible package. She made the booking process an enjoyable stress-free experience for us, leaving us to look forward to our honeymoon. She shared the full itinerary and booking documents with us through the Mytc app which was really helpful to have on our phones while on our travels. Everything on our honeymoon went seamless and we were delighted it was on budget and included everything we asked for. Thanks again Sarah!

We booked our honeymoon through Sarah and the whole process was so easy. We went in with one idea and ended up going for something entirely different and Sarah put together different options and talked us through everything. She has been so helpful and very responsive to any questions we had. Great experience all round!

Sarah was very easy to deal with right from the beginning. We told her where we would like to go and Sarah came back with different options straight away that we’re within our budget. All details were made available on an app that is accessible via a link sent by email. Payment etc was processed on the app so it was a very easy process. While we were away on honeymoon, Sarah was only a message away and responded very quickly if we had any questions about anything, which put us more at ease. Sarah made the organisation very easy and we would definitely use this service again.

Sarah has and is continuing to be so helpful in what has been an extremely stressful time with organising a wedding and honeymoon through a pandemic!! we have had to postpone many times and Sarah has been nothing but helpful and professional through it all, not to mention taking away any added stress we may have! We are really looking forward to finally getting away on our dream honeymoon to Cancun this year!!

Sarah, is an absolute STAR. She started planning our honeymoon for us in 2020, but then due to covid it was cancelled. Then we moved it to 2021, but because we still weren't comfortable with travelling considering the world wasn't out of the woods yet with COVID, we cancelled again. Each time she was supportive and helpful. We finally booked our honeymoon with her for April 2021, and again she was very helpful and quick. We got everything boomed and sorted in less than a week. Eoin and I are so grateful to you, Sarah. You made our honeymoon planning so stress-free even in a crazy covid world. We look forward to working with you again in the next future xx

We booked our honeymoon through Sarah very last minute as Covid and everything had us doubt if we can go at all or where we could go. She jumped on the ball immediately, listened to what we wanted and sent us a few options which we were very happy with and we got everything sorted very quickly. Everything was arranged for us as promised and the hotel and resort was wonderful and at least as good as we expected if not better. We were so happy with Sarah's service that when it came time for us to book our babymoon we went back to her eventhough our budget was much lower than for the honeymoon, she found us the most wonderful resort and package we could hope for which was still luxurious and comfortable. Very professional and friendly service, and quick to respond, and all the information was very well packaged and available once booked so even a control freak like myself (who is used to booking everything myself) was very happy and felt well looked after.

Sarah helped me book our dream honeymoon. Sarah was always very helpful and even when I changed my mind on the location, she had no problem starting from scratch to make sure it was planned to perfection. Her experience in the industry is so obvious and super helpful when it comes to decision making. I am so looking forward to going on our honeymoon in June!! Thank you Sarah, you are a gem!!

I contacted Sarah when I saw a recommendation on "Help! I'm getting married" Facebook page. We wanted to book a stress free honeymoon to Italy & especially with Covid in mind, we wanted to have the assistance of a professional travel agent to advise on what was needed whilst travelling. Sarah was an absolute dream to plan with, made great recommendations & her responses were always quick & efficient - nothing was ever an issue.

I first met Sarah at the Wedding and Honeymoon Show in the RDS, and she was friendly and gave great advice. In February 2020, I contacted Sarah to book our dream honeymoon to Cancun and Vegas. Sarah made suggestions to get the best package on offer and we were going to go ahead and book a package that included Miami and a cruise too, but Covid hit, and our wedding was postponed. We got married in September and two weeks before the wedding, I contacted Sarah when it looked like it was possible for us to leave the country. Sarah organised an amazing honeymoon for us in Crete and Santorini. She organised everything very quickly and professionally and it was a dream not to have to organise anything but simply open the app and see all the details of the honeymoon there with all the boarding passes, vouchers, and tickets. We stayed in three different hotels on honeymoon and each one was amazing, had wonderful facilities and were situated in great locations. My favourite location was Santorini, it wonderfully picturesque and we really enjoyed exploring the island. I would recommend Sarah to anyone booking a holiday but especially a honeymoon, Sarah took all the stress out of everything and was always accessible by email and phone, we really had nothing to do except show up and enjoy ourselves!! Thanks Sarah.

Sarah was recommended to us by a good friend and we equally had a fantastic experience. We thought trying to plan a honeymoon in the middle of a chaotic wedding (not to mention a pandemic) would be difficult but Sarah was always on hand and made the whole process seamless. From the big picture of putting our dream holiday together to the small details of ringing us the day before our trip to talk through the latest travel advice - Sarah was always on hand to help. Would definitely recommend Sarah for future couples and we will definitely be traveling with Sarah again!

We met Sarah at the honeymoon &wedding fair in the Rds. We immediately knew we were going to book our honeymoon with her. From the very beginning Sarah took all of the hassle out of booking a 5 star honeymoon. Everything was organised by Sarah. Due to covid we have had to move it a few times, Sarah made it so easy and stress free. She knows everything there is to know about all things travel. Really on the ball and always one step ahead. Sarah now feels like a friend and we are so happy we booked our honeymoon with her. Couldn"t recommend her enough!!

I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah for honeymoon plans! As someone who has little experience of planning big holidays, Sarah was the dream woman for the job - I gave her our dates, ideas & plans, and she came back to us with an amazing package. During Covid, when things had to be changed, she was always accessible & kept us calm, reassuring us of exactly what was happening with our money & our options, the peace of mind at a difficult time was priceless. We are yet to get on honeymoon, but with Sarah at the helm I know when we do it will be amazing. Cannot praise her service enough!

I met Sarah at a trade show in the RDS and instantly knew I wanted to book my honeymoon with her. She is so friendly and just really sound. She totally got what we wanted for our (original!) honeymoon to The Maldives and Sri Lanka. Then Covid hit, and Sarah was amazing, helped us re-organise the whole thing. We were really lucky we had booked through a travel agent, and not booked ourselves as it really helped with all the changes required. We had an amazing honeymoon in Greece (Stella Island would highly recommend!) And would highly recommend Sarah too :-)

Sarah was an absolute dream to deal with, we were a 2020 covid wedding and had to cancel and rebook travel that was safe but still allowed us to have a honeymoon. Sarah kept spirits up and everything she suggested and indeed we did was spot on. We now continue to use Sarah for all our travel. A very safe pair of hands!
