I have always worked in the travel industry, starting out as a Travel Agent in 1996 and since 2001 at Beachcomber. I have always had a passion for travelling and love the destinations we sell - from the beautiful Islands of Mauritius & the Seychelles, to the vibrant cities of Marrakech, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I am proud to work for Beachcomber as we have some of the best hotels in the Indian Ocean and Morocco and enjoy discussing and sharing my own experiences of the trips I have made to these truly amazing destinations.
ChrisAssistant Reservations Manager
Following my graduation in Tourism & Business Management I spent a year travelling around Australia and Thailand before joining a sports tour operator for three years putting together tailor made tours for clubs and schools as well as organising sporting festivals. I joined the Beachcomber Tours African product team in July 2002, attracted to the opportunity to tailor make clients holidays across Africa and often combining with one of the Beachcomber resorts in the Indian Ocean. Since 2007 I have dedicated myself to Mauritius, Seychelles and our new hotel in Marrakech which has provided the chance to regularly visit these countries all in the name of keeping my product knowledge to the optimum - happy days

After many years working in retail travel I then joined Beachcomber - that was back in 1991! I am very proud and honoured to be part of the Beachcomber team. Over the years, I have enjoyed building relationships with direct clients and agents alike who in many instances have now become more like friends. At Beachcomber, we have a high percentage of repeat guests and it gives me great pleasure to give them the very best service that they deserve.

I've worked in travel since 1997 starting out as a travel agent, and then moving into tour operations. I joined Beachcomber Reservations in 2003. Working in travel has given me wonderful opportunities to see the world and experience some fantastic holidays. Having never been to Mauritius prior to joining Beachcomber, it's a pleasure to be working for such a luxury tour operator which has given me the opportunity to visit these truly beautiful islands.

The travel bug caught me early and I’ve never worked in any other industry. I started in retail travel and moved on to group tours, overseas representation and since 1993 with the luxury Beachcomber hotels. I take advantage of being able to travel at the drop of a hat, and amongst my favourite destinations is Mauritius. Top quality hotels, fabulous beaches, spa facilities and plenty of sports including golf mean that for me it ticks all the boxes.
RiaSenior Reservations Consultant
I studied travel at university, worked for an independent travel agent, went travelling and since 2007 at Beachcomber so you can safely say travel is in my blood! At Beachcomber I work as part of our reservations team with emphasis on the Middle East. I have a huge passion for travel and spent 12 months travelling the world, visiting South America, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and China. Working for Beachcomber has given me the opportunity to visit some amazing places, especially Mauritius and the beautiful Seychelles......and introduced this backpacker to the world of luxury holidays!
SarahSenior Reservations Consultant
I joined Beachcomber in 2007 after spending a couple of years working for an independent travel agency. I really enjoy specialising in the Beachcomber properties and booking what I know will be holidays of a lifetime! My love of travel has developed from visiting some fantastic destinations including Mauritius, the Seychelles & South Africa.
Since I was a little girl I have always been interested and passionate about the world and all the cultures within in it. After I left school I joined a travel agency as an apprentice and completed my course. I found myself intrigued with the industry and stayed there for 7 years, I have recently moved to Beachcomber to forward my career. I have travelled to many destinations, loved every one of them and can’t wait to travel to many more.
I love travel and jumped at the opportunity to work for Beachcomber in July 2016. I previously worked in various customer service positions and working at Beachcomber has given me the opportunity to develop my customer service skills and to follow my passion whilst collaborating in a friendly, people orientated environment. I have travelled to a variety of destinations and was particularly struck by the stark beauty of Iceland and cultural diversity of Mexico. I have recently visited Mauritius and Morocco and these have been added to the top of the list of my favourite places!
I have always had a love of travel for as long as I can remember. I love hearing what makes people want to make their journey, I am fascinated about the world, this love has always stayed with me. After leaving university I started my journey into travel by working for a skiing company, after a few years I moved onto working for an adventure travel company where I was lucky to travel to a variety of destinations, I learnt so much and met so many wonderful people. Now working for Beachcomber I am lucky to have travelled to Mauritius and Morocco and to be working for a company who clearly love what they do.
I joined Beachcomber in September 2007 after spending 10 years working for one of the large multiple travel agencies. My main role is an administration position within the reservations department but I occasionally help out the reservations team when they are really busy. I enjoy working for Beachcomber and have been fortunate enough to have had several visits to all the destinations featured in the Beachcomber brochure. The Seychelles is without doubt one of the most beautiful and peaceful destinations that I have been to. Working for Beachcomber has helped me to realise that even if you only have time for a few nights away it is definitely worth travelling that extra distance to experience the Beachcomber hotels.
I was bitten by the travel bug during a school trip to South Africa, and since then I have travelled through South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, the Indian Ocean and French Polynesia. In 2015 I decided to put my love of travel and customer service skills to good use and joined an independent travel company, before moving to Beachcomber to focus more on the Indian Ocean in 2018. The white sands, dramatic mountains, mix of cultures and laid-back vibe of the Indian Ocean is like nowhere else, and is what makes it one of my favourite parts of the world.
As Operations manager, I take care of our clients during and after their holiday. This is an extremely varied role which includes everything from arranging sega dancers on the beach to helping anyone who needs me via our emergency out of hours helpline. I have worked in the travel industry since I was 16 years old - as a specialist long haul travel agent; business travel manager; Middle East Team Leader at Beachcomber Tours and I also help with reservations at very busy times.
I have always enjoyed travelling and only ever worked in the travel industry. I previously worked for Air UK and British Airways before joining Beachcomber Tours in 2003 as part of the Reservations team. My current role is supporting the Operations Manager; looking after our clients during and after their holiday in addition to working in Reservations too. I have been lucky enough to have visited both Mauritius and Seychelles many times and been able to share the experience with my young family too.
