Holiday Heaven! – Poetry in Promotion – By Su Dillon

(Su didn’t give us a title for this poem – so we made one up – and invented a new phrase for this column: Poetry in Promotion!)

Do you look like your passport photo, and perhaps need a break
But you know trawling the internet for hours is going to be a mistake

Here is the answer a travel agent available at hours to suit you
Your local Travel Counsellor – just get in touch with Su

Offering a very personal service, available 24 -7
With a range of options available wherever is your holiday heaven

Perhaps a weekend in Paris, or a city break in the UK
See Santa in Lapland as the reindeer pull his sleigh

A family week away in the Sun or a tailor-made trip
Travelling by car, train or plane and perhaps a ship?

I’ll do all the searching and leave you no stress
Searching dozens of websites and knowing which buttons to press

All bookings are safe with me, by Travel Counsellors financial trust
Protecting your hard-earned cash is surely a must!

No need to worry about check in, pre booking seats or entering APIS
I’ll take care of all the little extras so nothing is amiss

In recent years I’ve clients affected by ash clouds and Hurricane Sandy
But I’m on the phone 24-7 so I’m sure you’ll find that very handy

So if you’re looking to book any travel then you know what to do
Don’t waste your time and money and get in touch with Su.

Su is a local travel agent, living and working in Thorngumbald. She has written this little poem to promote her business – so, using Poetry in Promotion! A little bit cheeky perhaps – but we love it!

Su says: “As a franchise I am responsible for my own marketing so always keen to try new ways to ‘spread the word’”
