It's Nice To Meet You

Welcome, my name is James Houtby and I have worked in the sports and corporate travel arena for 15 years.

I have worked my way from Junior travel consultant to senior management which has now led to me now owning a travel management company specialising in Corporate, Sport & Accessible travel.

I have worked with some of the biggest names in the sport from grass roots teams through to the elite athletes and teams.

I am extremely excited to be able to announce I have collaborated with fellow Travel Counsellors Damian Flower. Damian has worked in the travel industry for over 30 years and in 2008 became the Travel Operations Manager at McLaren Racing.

My corporate testimonials

Sent by Lucy Causon

Hi James, I just wanted to send you a message to thank you for being you - so reliable, personable and professional. I'm sorry I missed your message to confirm the rail tickets - luckily James Carter checked today or I would have been none the wiser. It's so reassuring to know I can always rely on you even when I've dropped the ball and made a mistake. I truly don't think I could do my job without you! I’ve worked with many corporate travel companies over the last 25 years and none of them come close to the service you provide. You are exceptional and your attention to detail is second to none. I hope TC's know what an asset you are. You are brilliant and I appreciate you so much.

The service I have received in the last few weeks from James Houtby has been exceptional. He provides quotes in a timely manner and nothing is too much trouble. I will definitely be using this service more in the future and am glad to be getting travel moving again.

A* service from the team at Travel Counsellors - especially James Houtby. Trip was very smooth and the guidance and pro active nature of the service and support was excellent - especially given the complexities of travel in C19 time. Highly recommend

James, I just want to say that I have been blown away with how you looked after us for our US trip, to say it was all last minute it couldn’t have gone any smoother. The time and effort you put in was amazing and will never be forgotten, we know we are always in safe hands. Looking forward to a very long relationship with you!

I am writing this feedback as a football development officer for a private academy in Southampton, UK. James Houtby was extremely helpful with our needs for a weekend trip for 5 people in Mansfield, UK. Constantly prompt with any form of communication, very professional and really good liaising with third parties for any of our needs. Despite his busy schedule, he treated us like we are his only client, which was not the case. Very happy with his overall service and really keen working with him in the future.
