Hi my name is Tina Millington and I hope you can join me with your love to travel.
I have been in Australia for 11 years, having moved with my family from the UK. My expertise in European holidays comes from my own holiday experiences plus working in the retail travel industry for 15 years back at home. Since living in Australia, I have been a Travel Counsellor for over 7 years and have experienced some amazing places overseas and on our door step. I have sent clients on amazing tours through the Andes or skiing on the most breathtaking slopes staying at the resorts of Japan. Great family cultural holidays to Asia, and those who simply wanted a nice and quiet relaxing beach holiday. So whatever your dreams are, be it a holiday on a tranquil island in the Pacific or a train journey through the Rockies. I am your personal Travel Counsellor and am here to help you fulfil that dream.
I joined Travel Counsellors as I wanted to concentrate on giving my customers the highest level of personal customer service and independent travel advice. Travel Counsellors use the very latest award winning technology and works with all the leading tour operators and suppliers enabling me to tailor make your holiday to YOUR requirements at very competitive prices.
Travel Counsellors recognise that not everyone is free to discuss their travel arrangements during the busy working week. Say goodbye to long waits, busy traffic, parking hassles and hours fruitlessly “surfing the net”. I have the flexibility to come to you at a time and place that suits you. You can also contact me at times when other travel agents are closed.
I will take the stress, hassle and uncertainty out of planning and booking interstate and overseas travel – let the planning begin!
Contact me and let’s turn those dreams into a reality

Tina listens to what you would like to do and does her very best to fulfil these wishes. Her experience helps to guide you on the best way to travel and her patience makes it possible. I have never been disappointed with her choices of accommodation and would thoroughly recommend her to my friends and family. Which I have done with confidence. I look forward to my holiday to the U.K. and cruise in Amsterdam with my sister in-law in June and later with my husband to Canada.

Tina Millington went above and beyond what I would expect from a travel agent to get me not just a fantastic deal, but to help shape the itinerary through her expert knowledge. She totally took the stress out of booking a trip, plus saved me money and time from what I'd have invested trying to do it myself. Couldn't be happier.

We used Tina on a recommendation and couldn't have been happier. She literally took all of the stress out of planning a holiday so we could focus on the fun stuff. Without a doubt, the best experience of a travel agent I've ever had. We'll use her again for sure, and would happily recommend her services to anyone and everyone!

I wanted to send an email to say thanks so much for planning and co-ordinating such a brilliant family holiday for us. We loved Vietnam, the Eden Star in Ho Chi Minh and Palm Gardens in Hoi An provided excellent accommodation, beautiful staff who could not be more helpful. Our Bungalow on the Beach at Palm Gardens was enormous, quiet and all we had to do was walk out the door onto the beach and across the way to a restaurant. Thanks for suggesting a couple of tours so glad we did the tunnels and a cooking course, both were incredibly interesting and well run. The transfers from airport to hotel and back made it all so easy to move around. We highly recommend Vietnam as a brilliant destination, fresh and yummy food, beautiful people, so much to learn in regard to the history of Vietnam, lots of shopping to be done and cheap.

Tina is absolutely amazing. I was very anxious and she made me feel at ease. She explained everything to me, recommended and booked accomodation including making sure transport transfers were organised. She offered invaluable advice and recommendations. Tina stood out for me as she explained everything in fine detail and was always available to speak to for reassurance. She answers all my questions without making me feel silly. Tina is outstanding and went out and beyond to ensure all my needs were attended to. My trip has run smoothly and very organised thanks to Tina. Most importantly it has been stress free and I'm having an amazing time. I truly highly recommend Tina.

I am going on a trip of a lifetime with my mum to Italy in September 2016. A friend recommended Tina Millington from Travel Counsellors and from the moment I contacted her nothing was too much trouble. Even though she was on her own holiday at the time, she promptly arranged flights that were on sale at a very reasonable price and with optimum connection times. She had a wealth of experience and advice and happily catered to our every need and request. But the best part?! After Tina booked our flights, she took the time to enter us into a competition run by Etihad Airways called 'Your Flight. Our Shout' and guess what.... we won!!!! We got the entire $4000 spent on our flights back & we fly for free!!! Needless to say when Tina phoned to tell us the good news, I was jumping up and down on the bed & asking what her favourite kind of French Champagne was! We couldn't be happier with Tina and Travel Counsellors and wouldn't hesitate to use her and them again. We'd even be happy to pay our flights this time! Grazie mille from two very happy travellers, Rebecca McCowan

Tina has been amazing and very patient, with my continually pestering her with questions. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. It is great that you can do everything from home via email. She has been very helpful in helping us make decisions. Wonderful lady.

I'm so glad that a friend recommended Tina to arrange our holiday to Europe. From our first phone call I have found her so friendly and so helpful. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for Tina. Initially I was booking just our accommodation but after asking if it’s possible for her to book extras for us, we now have all our rail, flights, accommodation, tours and theatre tickets taken care of. In doing all this, Tina has been so efficient, so knowledgeable and has given me different options, always keeping our budget in mind. The whole experience has been hassle free and I would not hesitate in recommending Tina to my family or friends

Tina is always pleasant, helpful and easy to work with. She is clear on our needs for travel and does her utmost to accommodate us by providing at least 3 options to consider when booking flights and accommodation. She has a fast turnaround time and considers all travellers, young and old when she communicates to us. She is a delight to work!

Thank goodness for Tina! She makes booking a holiday a breeze and takes all the time and energy out of finding the best trip to suit our needs. Most of all, I love Tina in a crisis. We recently got caught up in the cyclone in Fiji and thanks to her, we were the most informed guests in the resort. She organised our transfers, rescheduled cancelled flights, and helped with the insurance claim.

We were recommended Tina , by a friend and what a fantastic recommendation it was! I work full time and long hours, so planning a trip to Europe seemed an impossible task! With one simple phone call to Tina I was reassured and our trip began to take shape. I had no idea about getting from A to B I just knew where I wanted to go and my budget. Tina managed to plan us the most perfect holiday, seven cities in 3 1/2 weeks and not a hitch! Not only was super easy to get around, Tina gave us recommendations on which places to visit all of which were brilliant. And the accommodation she booked not only met our budget but our style, she completely “got us” I highly recommend Tina and her services she is simply the best travel agent I have worked with, and given I travel nearly every month for my job I can say this with complete confidence

Thorough, dedicated and charming, we were amazed at Tina's foresight and knowledge, it made our incredibly complicated trip, seven cities in four weeks, remarkably effortless, from Bangkok to Reykjavik, Ireland to LA and back to Melbourne, we managed to keep ahead of the jet-lag and made all our flights on time without drama. Tina made it easy.

I loved my recent trip to Oahu in Hawaii in December. It was a 7-night trip to Waikiki with my 15yr old daughter, plus her best friend. I definitely needed back up, so I called on my good friends and her 15yr old too! So off we set for the ultimate girlie trip with the clothes on our back and empty suitcases! We stayed at the Embassy Suites by Hilton, located in the heart of Waikiki. This is a fantastic family hotel that offers apartment-style accommodation and breakfast. The pool is one of the biggest of all the apartment styles accommodation...

Hosted by our partners in the USA, a small group of TOP GUN Travel Counsellors enjoyed 3 days in West Hollywood as Part 1 of our TOP GUN achievers trip. The journey continued in Part 2 to San Diego. From Los Angeles, we travelled by Rail on the Amtrak service from Union Station. The station itself really is an iconic place to see and I am sure you would recognise it once you saw it as it has been featured in a lot of TV shows and films over the years.

I would like to share a fantastic holiday experience I had not too long ago with my husband and our two small children to SOUTH AFRICA. We were very fortunate to stay with a family friend staying on their sugar cane farm in Zulu Natal just outside Pietermaritzburg. This was a fabulous experience as it was the time of year to burn the sugarcane. We were driven off through the cane as it burned WOW what a site. My husband was off doing the Comrades ultra Marathon so as soon as this was over we took a Safari at TALA game park...
