Welcome to my Business webpage.
My name is Bertie Loubser, and I’m an Independent Business Travel Counsellor based in the northern suburbs of Cape Town. I’m married and am the proud father of two beautiful boys!
I started my career in the travel industry in 1981 with South African Airways and worked as a senior travel consultant and later manager of various agencies in the Western Cape. I am now proud to be my own “boss” working with the support of the world’s largest travel home-working agency, Travel Counsellors.
During my 31 years in the travel industry I’ve had the opportunity to travel to most parts of the world, from New York to Timbuktu. Not only did I visit many destinations but I also experienced many types of travel and holidays. One of the highlights of my travel adventures was taking a break for a year to travel overland from Cape Town to London in an old diesel Landover threw 25 countries covering 35000km.
I'm more than capable of assisting you with your business travel arrangements, our award winning reservation system gives me the edge when it comes to sourcing deals best suited to your requirements - from a domestic air ticket to a round-the-world-once-in-a-life-time dream holiday. I am a Visa expert. Travel Counsellors is BEE accredited.
People often ask why they should make use of my services if everything can be booked on the internet. The answer is simple. The internet is a machine and you're just a number. The internet isn't a judge of character. It won't take your age, culture or personality into consideration, it won't tell you that it's now a rainy season in Thailand or that there's hardly any water coming down Victoria Falls in September. It won't tell you that you need a visa for the UK or Yellow Fever certificate when travelling to the Masai Mara! You cannot call the internet in the middle of the night when you’re stuck at a check-in counter and the airline is telling you that your flight is overbooked – let alone resolve the situation and get you on that flight! The internet won’t call you once you arrive back, to welcome you home to find out how your trip was.
Thanks to Travel Counsellors global buying power I can more than often match, and even better internet offers. I’m available 24/7 and can meet you at a place convenient to you. I'm in the business of offering you an exceptional personal service and finding you the best options at the best possible prices.
I'd be delighted to assist with your travel plans and cannot wait to hear from you.
