Martyn

It’s always nice to know who makes the wheels of a local business go round. Martyn Fisher has been running Greenstar Travel since 1983.

Martyn is extremely experienced in the travel world having worked in most sectors of the industry. A lot of his time has been spent handling travel arrangements for corporate clients and now that most air travel is booked online, he is putting his considerable experience towards advising clients the best way to arrange a trip. This is not always the way the airline would like you to do it!

These days Martyn uses his expert knowledge and honest advice to arrange clients’ holidays and loves getting his teeth into a complicated itinerary. As you would expect, Martyn is incredibly well travelled however of course there is always somewhere new he would like to go! His favourite destinations include Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast of Mexico, the beaches of the Portuguese Algarve and Greece. He and the Greenstar team are strong supporters of AITO tour operators (the Association of Independent Tour Operators).

Lynn

Lynn worked in the City for 10 years after which she took a 5 year career break to look after her young family. Coming back into the working world she changed direction and joined the Greenstar team in 2018.

In her past roles, booking travel and scheduling was a key task and so the transition from one sector to another was like taking a duck to water - with the added breath of fresh air! As an avid traveller herself she has visited much of continental Europe with a devotion to Italy and Portugal in recent years although she admits that it may be the cuisine of the destination that influences her most! 

The USA is also high on her list of top destinations having visited 24 out of 50 states and completed Route 66 and Highway 1.

Lynn loves nothing more than creating much deserved annual family holidays and gains as much satisfaction from booking once in a lifetime adventures. It really is just all about finding the best components that make those special memories and, she says, is the best part of her job.

Karen

Apart from Martyn, Karen is the longest standing member of the Greenstar Travel team.

⠀ Karen started off as an office junior in an independent agency many moons ago. Airline tickets were hand written and all reservations were made over the phone. Flight timetables were in huge directories and there were only a handful of major package holiday companies!

Needless to say, her role has evolved with the times and she is now an expert at searching for holidays that tick all the boxes for her valued clients. From beautiful beaches to snow-capped mountains she knows the most perfect spots to satisfy any client's wish list.

⠀ Karen says "I have been lucky enough to visit some amazing places including the Maldives, Mauritius, India, the Caribbean and the Azores. By far my favourite destination is the Greek Islands, they are just so relaxed and tranquil. I love my job, every day is different - it is so rewarding when my clients call to thank me for creating such wonderful memories for them."⠀

Jennie

Jennie

Jennie started her travel career in 1997 soon moving through the ranks to become co-owner of Village Travel in Cheam.  Jennie was forced to close her beloved agency last year but soon came into the fold of Greenstar Travel under her own brand of Jennie Watson – Personal Travel Consultant.  She continues to offer service and support to her many loyal clients.

Jennie has travelled extensively enjoying trips to several incredible destinations including India, Australia, Japan, the Seychelles, Kenya and Morocco. The Caribbean is a favourite too and Jennie is able to offer expert advice on which island to visit. 

Jennie’s expertise extends to the USA and Canada as well as Europe - one of her favourite cities is Florence for the romance, culture and sheer beauty – and she often recommends Crete and Cyprus for the ideal European summer escape. 

With Jennie's honeymoon approaching, her preferred destination changes daily – top of the list currently is the Maldives for its beautiful beaches and relaxing vibe.
