Kate Egginton

Your Travel Concierge


I have 8 years experience in the travel industry as cabin crew for British Airways and Jet2.com. I have flown to a mixture of long and short haul destinations around the world. I love visiting new places and experiencing new cultures. My dream is to eventually have completed the 7 wonders of the world. I have currently visited 2 – the Taj Mahal and the Great wall of China.

I take pride in being organised and delivering first class customer service. I work as hard as possible to ensure my customers have a positive experience with me. I consider myself friendly and approachable to ensure my customers come to me with any problems so I can rectify them.

I love to travel with both my partner and parents so I have been to a variety of places such as romantic walks in Paris to a family trip to Washington to see the White house.

My mother is South African so we often spent our Christmas’ as children visiting family in Johannesburg. We have visited many national parks such as Kruger National Park, as well as staying in country lodges in Durban.

I enjoy spending time with my family and 2 sausage dogs in the country side. We often have staycations around the UK in log cabins or houses where we can take the dogs and go on country walks.

I have over the past year also taken an interest in cruising. I have been on 2 cruises over the last year – both as a TUI package. One was around the Caribbean visiting places such as St Lucia and Barbados, the other one was around the Mediterranean visiting different cities such as Barcelona and Monaco. I really enjoyed them both and had no complaints about either experience. I look forward to experiencing more cruises with companies such as Celebrity and Royal Caribbean.

I enjoy reading books whilst away on work trips. I find this relaxes me and helps me to wind down from a busy life style. I read a variety of books- some about historical events such as WW2 and others fictional.

I enjoy Christmas markets with my mum. Every year we will go to a Christmas market around the world and turn it into a girls trip. We have been to places such as Latvia, Czech Republic, Poland and the USA.

I also do enjoy Disney – although I’m not an expert. I have visited Disney Land in multiple destinations such as Paris, Florida and Los Angeles. My favourite Disney film is Lilo and Stitch. I also love Lion King – although it makes me cry. I have watched Lion King in New York too on Broadway.

I have friends all around the UK so I also spend some of my days off visiting them. Some are in London, others Manchester, Belfast and even Glasgow. The majority of them are also cabin crew who I have met alongside flying.

I originally wanted to become a pilot so I have done a few flying lessons. My passion isn’t just for flying but for aviation as a whole. I have visited the Boeing museum and the Museum of Flight in Seattle. Although I wasn’t old enough to be cabin crew on Concord this museum allowed me to go and see it. I enjoy doing things people wouldn’t normally do such as a sea plane or sky diving. I just want to make the most out of life and my career.

    Located in the Lesser Antilles, this small coral island is just 21 miles long and only 14 miles wide, or as said by locals, a smile wide, with the Atlantic to the east and the Caribbean Sea to the west. In addition to the turquoise waters, powder-white sand you will also find a UNESCO World Heritage listed capital, a vibrant nightlife and a busy surf and snorkelling industry.

    New York, USA

    Fondly dubbed The Big Apple, New York City is one of the most densely populated cities in the United States and the home to a scope of cultures and diversity. New York City consists of 5 boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island; Each being so vastly different from the next, moving between them will often feel like stepping into another city entirely.
