Her experience speaks for itself

“I had the absolute pleasure of working with Louise at STA Travel. Louise is so personable and knowledgeable, is full of good ideas and very commercial in her thinking.

She takes the time to get under the skin of the company and become an extended member of the team. Her experience speaks for itself, and at STA Travel she was instrumental in getting some significant amounts of coverage for us.

In particular, around large projects like our £49 ticket sale to Thailand – which had people queuing and camping outside two of our stores for three days! I can proudly recommend Louise to anyone.”
