Spotlight on: STA Travel Milton Keynes

At STA Travel we live by “We Know Because We Go”. We’re travellers just like you, and when we aren’t helping you with your adventures we’re off having our own! Travel Experts visit hundreds of faraway places every year, and they’ll use their experiences and life-changing moments, to help YOU create your very own bespoke trip.

We will be introducing the faces of our stores and finding out more about them. And telling you why you should get down to a store to plan your next trip. And if you do book an appointment with one of our Travel Experts we’ll give you £30* off!

Where is your favourite place in the world?

Emma-Louise: My favourite place in the whole world is Yosemite National Park in California, there really are no words to describe its stunning scenery.

Fliss: I left my heart in Australia when I spent a year working and travelling there a few years back.

Becky: I’ve always travelled due to adventurous parents, but my first trip abroad as a solo traveller was on a one-way flight to Nepal which was the best trip ever and my favourite country

Charlie: My favourite places are New Zealand, Indonesia, Galapagos Islands and Colombia.

Where else have you been?

Emma-Louise: I have been lucky enough to complete two amazing round the world trips with my boyfriend. On our first trip we visited China, Vietnam, Thailand, Australia and Fiji, on our second trip we visited Iceland, 2 month across USA road trip, Brazil, Peru, Galapagos Islands (Ecuador) and finished off in the Cook Islands.

Fliss: I have been very lucky to have visited many places from Japan, USA, New Zealand, Singapore, and Hong Kong to Europe.

Becky: I’ve done huge chunks of Asia (I love India and did this as a solo female without any issues whatsoever), a tiny bit of South America (I need to see more!), Australia, North America, Canada, all over Europe….and seeing some more of Europe and Japan/Hong Kong this year! I generally always travel independently and have also experienced some of the amazing trips we offer.

Charlie: I have been backpacking alone on 2 separate 18 month trips, my 1st time was Asia including India and Nepal, China , south East Asia, Australia and then working in New Zealand for 6 months. My 2nd trip I visited the Middle East and South America travelling from Brazil, through Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and ending in Panama.

Jo: I have been lucky enough to visit exotic locations including Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Jamaica, Antigua, Mexico, Florida, and a road trip around the west coast of America

Where is next on your list?

Jo: Working for STA has opened my eyes to the most amazing destinations and one day I will get to Oz, Indochina, Brazil and Costa Rica

Fliss: Next on my list is India to take part in the famous Rickshaw Run! Wish me luck!

Luke: My next challenge is to tackle the mighty Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and I’m heading over to Croatia for a 9 day sailing chill out.

Fabia: I currently have a trip to Bali booked which I am extremely excited about! I can’t wait to experience traveller life and come back and share my experiences with friends, family, colleagues and customers

What is your top tip when travelling?

Luke: Always ask your travel advisor about alternative stop overs or routes to your end destinations, there are some hidden gems along the way and can add extra value and adventure onto your trip! Bali is only three hours away from Australia!

Fliss: When preparing for your trip, do a packing trial run. Pack your bag full of everything you think you’ll need, then unpack it all and half it. You’ll be very glad you did later.
