For Ash, travel is a learning opportunity. It’s a time to explore new cultures, seek out unforgettable experiences, and escape to the many facets of the world’s beauty.

Ash is a traveler at heart – one that’s roamed and adventured far and wide and fallen in love with the sights, sounds, and smells the world has to offer. As an advisor, he wants to share his passion with others and help enrich their lives with unique travel experiences. In a new age of luxury travel, an excellent travel designer can help navigate an ever-changing landscape, domestic or international. He is there to help during any emergency that may arise when clients are off exploring some (hopefully) far-flung, exotic destination.

Ash is also your number-one advocate with SmartFlyer’s partners, suppliers, and many other affiliations. But he prides himself on his on-the-ground relationships with the very best local providers, making his tailored adventures unique for each client. His relationships open up a whole new world of travel and he capitalises on them to create the perfect sojourns.

What is your most memorable travel experience?

Egypt was the one place I had wanted to visit since I was a small child. And day after day, I was completely blown away. It was an incredible experience, especially my slow sojourn down the Nile with Nour El Nil.

Which destinations/hotels do you go back to again and again?

I always try to visit Capri at least once every year. It’s my ‘happy place’. Somewhere where you can experience the true essence of La Dolce Vita, whether at glamourous restaurants or beach clubs. The thing that makes me happiest is simply hanging at a free local beach and eating a five euro pizza!
