About Francoise Daines

You'll see a fair bit of Francoise every week, as she delivers her weekly round up of deals on the Deal Reel. Francoise is a London-based journalism grad and STA Travel's Online Content Executive. Between all that, she still finds time to travel; having already hit up Mexico, Thailand and New Zealand this year. Meanwhile, she's holding out for her dream destination: South America. And what's Francoise's favourite subject? Mexican torta's (mouth-watering Mexican sandwiches), and the fact that London continually fails to provide a match to those she devoured in Oaxaca, Mexico.
