Let me plan your dream holiday!

Are you planning a trip to Scotland and have no idea where to start? Or perhaps there is so much you want to do and you don’t know how to fit it all in, or you’re worried you may miss something you’d love to see.

Hi, I’m Yvette! I’m a Scotland Travel Expert and it’s my job to help people plan their dream trips to Scotland. My Scotland Zoom Consultations are designed to save you time, money, and a whole lot of overwhelm.

With my travel consultation service, you can pick my brain and ask me anything about your Scotland trip!

Why you should let me help you plan your dream Scotland trip

  • I previously worked as an International Travel Agent for a global travel agency- so I know plenty of travel hacks and the best places to book tours, accommodation and other excursions!
  • I know SO many places off the beaten path in Scotland that many people don’t realise exist. It’s my goal to get visitors off the beaten track and discover the authentic places in Scotland.
  • I’m passionate about sustainable travel in Scotland.
  • I can review your itinerary and make sure you’re not being overly ambitious or missing out on something important. I can also answer any questions you have about travelling around Scotland.

Consultation

Express Consultation

This option is suitable if you have a list of questions you’d like to ask me or an itinerary you’d like feedback on (please only book this option if you have an itinerary prepared). This option does NOT come with typed notes.

£125 for 60 minutes.

Standard Consultation

Exactly the same as the Express option except your consultation comes with typed notes, links and resources (for example, if you’re travelling by public transport, I will research and provide you with notes that include where to book your buses/trains etc).

£175 for 60 minutes.

Create Your Itinerary Consultation

If you’re just getting started and need help creating the perfect itinerary, this option is for you. During this session we will plan your perfect itinerary and I’ll send you a typed itinerary, with helpful links and resources to book your trip.

£225 for 90 minutes.

Bonus resources

Each consultation also includes:

  • A recording of our consultation
  • My Food + Drink Scotland Planner – my favourite restaurants, pubs, cafes, and in Scotland to make finding somewhere to eat and drink easy peasy!
  • My Whisky Distilleries map – all the whisky distilleries in Scotland that offer tours and tastings with links to book.

How does it work?

Before our call Once you book your consultation, you will be asked to complete my questionnaire. I will set aside time before our call to review your itinerary (if you have one). Please email me your itinerary (if you have one) at least 24 hours before we’re scheduled to chat.

During our call – Make sure that when you join the call you are using a laptop or desktop- please do not join on your mobile phone as the calls are quite visual and I will share my screen with you to point out certain things and you won’t be able to see my recommendations! Also, please make sure you have a strong internet connection.

During our Zoom call, where you can ask me absolutely anything about Scotland, and I can give you feedback on your itinerary (if you have one). If you’ve selected the 90-minute consultation, we will spend this time creating your itinerary.

After our call – you will receive a recording of our consultation you can watch back. If you have opted for the Standard or the Create Your Itinerary consultation, I will send you a PDF document of typed notes, helpful links, and your itinerary!

Testimonials

Yvette is such a pleasure to talk to and very knowledgeable about travel around Scotland! I had planned a big trip for my friends and I that needed to be rescheduled because of the pandemic. During my rebooking process I ended up with one odd night that I wasn’t quite sure quite what to do with in terms of where to stop over and Yvette had some great suggestions. She also had loads of good information about route planning, restaurants and other fun off the beaten path type sites. Can’t recommend her enough!

I did a Zoom meeting with Yvette yesterday. I was feeling overwhelmed as to planning my trip. She took me through everything I was interested in and built a wonderful itinerary for me. She provided lots of suggestions and is sending everything in an email too! She was very sweet and a delightful to talk with. Our discussion was worth every Penny and so much more!!!!

Shari Barnett, USA

Our Zoom with Yvette was informative, helpful, and fun. She’s given us many suggestions for our May-June trip. She knows the country so well!
