Wendy McSwaine

Business Class, Luxury and Travel Specialist

Wendy founded Global Jetsetting with her primary school best friend, Lyn Carter, many years ago. What started as a two man team has grown into the Global Jetsetting we know today – eleven staff over two offices. Wendy has now been in the Travel Industry 37 years. Yes, she started when she was 10! Some of Wendy’s clients have been with her for over 30 years and she has an extremely loyal following.

Wendy specialises in business and first class fares together with luxury accommodation and her international ski knowledge surpasses even the ski specialists. Wendy has travelled extensively her whole life and doesn’t have many destinations left to tick off her list. Wendy is now by introduction or appointment only.

Lyn Carter

European River Cruise, Tour and Ski Specialist

Lyn is one of Global Setting’s founding owners. She started her travelling career with airlines, then moved onto organising large ski groups all over the world. Having travelled the world, she is now Global Jetsetting’s cruise and river cruise specialist, only just returning from Myanmar.

Shopping is one of Lyn’s favourite pastimes, so she can recommend all the best shopping areas in any part of the world (ask her about her shoe shopping experience in Kuala Lumpur … she accidentally tried on a customer’s pair of shoes in the excitement of it all!).

Shelley Martin

Cruise and Tour Specialist

Shelley partnered with Global Jetsetting co owners, Wendy and Lyn, to open the new Global Jetsetting location in Ascot. While Shelley is the newest member of the Global Jetsetting team, she is certainly not new to the industry. With over 30 years experience working in travel, Shelley has worked in every facet of the industry, from check-in at the airport, organising school ski groups, to sales and marketing for tour and cruise companies and training upcoming travel consultants.

With her own travel experiences throughout Europe, Asia, America, South Pacific, Africa and South America, Shelley loves nothing more than to help plan your dream holiday. Are you part of a club or group that would benefit from having a speaker come along to talk about travel opportunities? With years of experience in running information sessions and social events, Shelley is more than happy to come along and talk at any event.

Valerie Ireland

Family Holiday Specialist

Valerie is our family holiday specialist, having travelled around the world with her own family.

Sarah Ledwith

Complex Round World Specialist

Sarah Ledwith is one of our most senior, experienced international travel consultants. Sarah, like Wendy, has a very loyal clientele. Once they find her they never leave. Sarah has a love of complex round world fares. The more intricate, the better. Sarah can book any holiday, any airline and any tour no matter where. She does love her Antarctica bookings, having recently travelled to South America. And cruising another speciality! Sarah loves doing her research, but what separates her from other consultants? Not only does she know her travel, she is fast, efficient and all with a very friendly manner. Sarah does have a downside. Yes, she only gives us four days a week, as she has a young family. If we could have her seven days then all our work would be done!
