Welcome to my Business Travel web page! Welkom by my web bladsy!
My name is Ronel and I am a personal Business Travel Counsellor, based in the Strand – Helderberg.
I have been in the travel industry for 39 years and I specialise in both leisure and corporate travel as well as in group travel. My clients are from all over the country as well as abroad and I speak both English and Afrikaans.
My career in travel started at a travel agency in Stellenbosch in 1980; thereafter I worked in the Strand as a senior travel consultant and later as Branch Manager until 2006, when I decided to become an independent travel agent.
During the years I have done many fares courses; Galileo, BSP, IATA/UFTAA as well as extensive training on Travel Counsellors intranet & Phenix booking systems.
I joined Travel Counsellors so that I could grow my leisure and corporate business. I can offer my clients the best service with the professional backing and support from Travel Counsellors Head Office. My Head Office handles all the admin, assists with marketing and technology and is a member of IATA & ASATA and is BEE accredited. Another addded benefit of booking with me is our Travel Counsellors Financial Protection Plan which protects all my clients’ money against supplier defaults. We have over 1800 TC's in seven countries and I have access to their combined support, local knowledge and experience 24 hours a day.
My years in the travel industry has given me many travel opportunities, and I have visited countries and cities in South Africa, Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands, UK & Europe, North and South America, Far East and Australia and Cruising. My Travel Highlights include… white river rafting down the Zambezi, skiing in Italy, and stepping onboard the Concorde (it was only an inspection visit on the ground), cruising Greece & Turkey, Phi Phi Island in Thailand, meeting Mickey and Minnie mouse at Disney Orlando as well as SeaWorld, San Diego and many many more…
