Derby Mums sponsored by Clare Stege Independent Travel Agent 

destination

What’s your favourite family travel destination and why?

I have many favourite destinations but I think for me it’s the USA, they capture service so well from the Florida Disney once in a lifetime family experience to the cities and coastal drives there is something for everyone.

Why did you want to become a Derby Mums Family Card Sponsor?

I believe everyone should have access to travel and family friendly destinations, it can be daunting travelling with children abroad and in the UK and I wanted to showcase everything I do with Derby Mums and give great value holidays.

What is the biggest travel trend of 2019 and what do you predict for 2020?

2019 has been very varied in destinations, the previous year’s good weather saw quite a late increase in bookings to a lot of Spanish destinations. City breaks have been really popular and Lapland has been extremely popular and more affordable. 2020 will still have all the usual short haul destinations however I see a bit move towards family cruises and more operating directly from the UK

When did you get your lightbulb moment in business?

I’ve always been very driven with business and service is my moto, I realised, 10 years ago that I wanted to expand my business and also build it round my family.  I didn’t want to work for anyone and wanted to drive my business indepedently. Which i am able to do this with the security of the consortium I havebehind me, to give all my customers financial ATOL protection. Therefore I’ve been able to create an independent business that I feel has fantastic suppliers, service and is competitively priced.

If could give your 13 year old self a few wise words what would it be…. ?

I would tell my 13 year old self to enjoy every moment of being young and travel, enjoy as many experiences as you can. Not to take life to seriously at that age and work hard. You can achieve anything you want to achieve.
