Candace Crainie

Senior Sales Consultant

Hi I’m Candace & I am a Senior Sales Consultant here at Thorne Travel.

I have had the pleasure of working here for the past 6 years and I absolutely love my role.

It isn’t just a job for me, travel is in my blood. I love being part of such an amazing, dedicated & hardworking team who have such vast and varied knowledge of the industry & who really do put the customers best interests at heart every time.

Favourite Places

I love travelling and get such a buzz visiting new places but my favourite holiday destination has to be Dubai. It’s all year round sunshine, luxury hotels, fantastic restaurants, culture and nightlife make it a holiday destination everyone will enjoy! I have three young boys, all who have travelled from around 6 months old.

For some parents the idea of taking their child to the airport or on a plane is enough to ground them in the UK until their child has turned 18. However, there really is nothing to be afraid of.

I am happy to recommend my family friendly favourite destinations and hotels!

Travel Tips

My top tip for travelling with children would be.. pack snacks, toys and games to keep them interested until you touch down. Colouring books and iPads with their favourite movies or you could plan different games for every half an hour, including spotting ‘landmarks’ like the right ticket desk or the first airplane!

Where I have visited

I have been lucky to travel to lots of amazing destinations throughout:

  • Europe
  • America
  • Middle East
  • the Caribbean

I have also been on some amazing work trips too which really does help me pass on lots of fist hand valuable knowledge to my customers. My favourite work trip had to be to St Lucia where I was lucky enough to experience Upper Class with Virgin And explore the stunning island staying and visiting lots of beautiful luxury hotels.
