Hello, my name is Deborah Dewe and I am your personal Travel Counsellor living in Safety Bay, Rockingham WA. I am flexible to discuss your travel requirements at a place and time that suits you and make your planning an enjoyable experience!
My whole career has centred around travel and as your Travel Counsellor, I will utilise all my experience of destinations and travel to ensure I deliver you excellent customer service and the travel experience designed especially for you.
I have travelled extensively and through my time in travel journalism, I was fortunate to be hosted by some of the best destinations, cruise lines and hotels in the world. I enjoy experiential travel often going off the beaten track, however I would also recommend the occasional holiday where you do not have to lift a finger.
My favourite destinations include Morocco, Iceland, Italy, India, The Caribbean and of course the UK where I lived before moving to Perth. I have travelled to over 38 countries and flown with many of the major airlines and low-cost carriers, so I have great insight into the different options available to you.
My aim is to deliver you a personalised service detailing your holiday to match all your individual requirements. I will use my connections in the global travel industry to seek out the best options and advice for your travel plans.
Personally, I have a strong attention to detail, I am professional and trustworthy. In my free time I walk my dogs on the local beaches, make arts and crafts, swim, cycle and practice yoga. I enjoy all cuisine and relish this when travelling myself.
I look forward to working with you to tailor make your next adventure.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely love travel! Take a look through my posts - you might find holiday inspiration where you least expect it...

I was lucky enough to be hosted on a familiarization trip to Bangkok and Hua Hin in Thailand, perfect if you want a combined city and beach holiday. Flying with Thai Airways into Bangkok in business class we were spoilt with amazing service, lovely food and constant offerings of drinks. The flat beds are extremely comfy and the variety on entertainment on the flat screens keeps you entertained. (on the return journey we flew economy and I could not fault this service either) Bangkok is a very busy city but staying at the Avani Plus Bangkok riverside offered all the comforts...

I have been fortunate to travel extensively throughout my life and there are always ups and downs when things don't quite meet your expectations or sometimes exceed them. I organized my trip to the UK including flights, car hire and insurance as I was travelling back to see my family. Flying with Qatar was seamless from a very friendly check-in, through to great food and service onboard. The planes were roomy, clean and the entertainment (although not as good as other Middle Eastern carriers) was great with something for everyone. I felt there was a constant stream of water to...

The journey up to Exmouth can take as many days as you want as there is so much to see and do on the way up with the final destination offering breathtaking Canyons (Yardie Creek) and idyllic beaches (Turquoise Bay). We travelled up over 3 days with our four-legged companion and had no trouble finding camping grounds to accommodate pets. The only thing I would say is many of the best spots are nature reserves, so it might be worth leaving doggy at home. Places to visit if you have never been to WA start not far north from Perth with Lancelin...

Nadi is the gateway to the Fijian Islands including the Mamanuca and Yasawa islands. I travelled alone through these islands and felt really welcomed by the local people and other travellers. I would suggest the best things to do in the islands are: 1. Travel throughout the islands on a 7-day pass with Yasawa Flyer Ferry, it allows you to choose which islands you stay on, I recommend a max of 2 nights on any island all of which are best to book in advance as they get busy and to keep the island feel there are limited no. of rooms. 2. Snorkel off...

Sometimes we forget that some of the best places to visit are right here in Australia. I took a two-week trip to the Northern Territory and was taken aback by the amazing scenery, wildlife, activities and cultural experiences it has to offer. It is such a vast territory so you can’t see it all, however below are some suggestions to get ideas for you own visit. 1.Firstly I would suggest if you are doing a self drive get a 4WD, it allows you to get off the beaten track and access all the national parks without it upsetting your insurance policy. 2....

Singapore surprised me, there is so much to do and something for everyone. It is a great place for a stopover but you will only be able to skim the surface in 48hrs. Here's some ideas for couples, seniors, families, nature lovers. thrill seekers and foodies; Families - Sentosa offers Universal Studios, Luge and Sky ride, Segway Fun Ride, Adventure Cove Waterpark, S.E.A Aquarium, Concerts, Butterfly park and Insect Kingdom. Couples - Long Bar in Raffles, pricy but a must do. Little India, eating out in China Town, Giant Swing AJ Hackett, Cocktails at the top of Marina Bay Sands, Shopping @...

Flying to Phuket from Perth, Deb helped us find the shortest duration of flights and the shortest duration stop over in Singapore so we could get to our destination and home quicker with a good carrier. We had been truing ourselves for weeks and getting no where! Deb also confirmed the accommodation I thought could be OK but wasn't sure based on reviews online only. Deb also provided us with links to restaurants, tailors and other things for us to do whilst there. Originally we wanted to stay 4 nights in Singapore but it was too expensive on this occasion, I had mentioned to Deb that we also had a cruise on our bucket list, she suggested fly to Singapore stay a couple of nights then join a cruise, great idea (maybe next year? :) Thanks for all your help Deb.

A total disaster back in the UK, phoned Deborah to help me organise flights home at a very stressful time. Cannot thank her enough for her support & service 120% grateful. Also taking a minor with me with different surname going through customs, she advised me to get a letter from the parents giving authorisation to take their child out of the country, so glad she did this as we were stopped going into the UK. Cannot thank Deb enough

From the moment we contacted Deb to get a quote for our next holiday we were impressed. Deb made you feel happy and relaxed to talk to her and she is very patient tailoring your trip. Everything was done quickly and efficiently and if we had any further questions they were researched and Deb came back to us with answers and suggestions very quickly. We appreciated the extras also we received on the trip. We did our first cruise to Vietnam/Cambodia through Deb and would thoroughly recommend her for your travel counsultant. We are looking forward to arranging our next holiday through Deb.

Deborah was so helpful in promptly sorting out a domestic and an international flight for my mother at very short notice. My mum was on a flight within a few days and the flights were at a great price. Deborah sorted an issue with a passport and seating arrangements for her. It was a very stressful and emotional time and I cannot thank Deborah enough for all her help. I would not hesitate to book future flights and accommodation with her and would fully recommend her to family and friends. I now have my very own Travel Counsellor :) Thanks again Debs

Deb saved me time and money because she shopped around for the flights that were most suitable to my budget. Insurance was organized efficiently and dealing with Deb was friendly, smooth and convenient. I would recommend Deb to my family and friends when they are ready to book an overseas holiday.

We have nothing but good things to say about Deborah, from the moment we emailed her for a quote she has replied very quickly, asked us all the right questions and quoted what we actually wanted. Very impressed with her and we look forward to meeting her in the future. I feel Deborah will be the one person that always answers the questions as quick as she can and not keep you waiting like some travel agencies have done in the past.

I have used Travel Counsellors while I lived in the UK and found them to be fantastic. In fact, I was so impressed I recommended them to all my contacts. Now since I have moved to Perth I am delighted to find Travel Counsellors here and look to build the same relationship with Deborah as I did with her colleague in the UK. Deborah’s attention to detail is remarkable. She has taken the time to understand all my travel needs. Preferred flight times and airlines, food preference, hotel requirements etc. I know that every booking I’ll be looked after. I’ll certainly be recommending her to everyone I know.

I would like to absolutely recommend Deborah Dewe, our Travel Counsellor. Debs organised a wonderful trip recently for my elderly mother and I. She grasped exactly what would be fabulous for us, making wonderful suggestions. She was always thorough, prompt and caring, together with a warm and friendly personality. Unfortunately my mother became ill while we were in Europe. Debs was immediately contactable in Australia, and able to help us return as quickly and as economically as possible. It was so very reassuring to have Debs manage this difficult situation and I will always be so grateful and so glad that we chose Debs to organise our trip. We will definitely use Debs again, and I recommend her so highly.

Thank you Deb for the most amazing holiday to the Perth area over Easter. You planned so many great things for us to do, suiting both the children and adults, as well as being excellent value for money. The airport car pickup was seamless and our accommodation was perfect. Thank you for your friendly, personal service where nothing seemed too much trouble. A holiday of a life time - we will certainly call upon your services again in the near future!
