Claire Sweeney joins Just You as Travel Ambassador
Say hello to Claire Sweeney – star of stage and screen, singer,
presenter and now our new Just You Travel Ambassador.
No stranger to exploring the world, Claire caught the travel bug
when she worked as an entertainer on cruise ships.
“My most memorable experience was when I went to Goa in the nineties, before it was a popular destination. My cabin steward, Tony, on the cruise ship arranged for his family to take me to their village. When I arrived, we had goat stew and the ladies covered me in talc, dressed me in a sari and gave me gifts. Being a girl from Liverpool, I’d never experienced anything quite like this, the hospitality was wonderful, and people were beautiful,” said Claire.
“Just You offers the perfect holiday for me personally, I have a huge passion for travel, to see great places and countries that I have not been to. With Just You, I can travel solo while having the company of a group, but I can also go and explore on my own and then share the experience with the group later in the day,” added Claire.
“I will soon be heading off to India with Just You, and I can’t wait. I’ve only spent a day in Mumbai while working on the ships, and it’s been a lifelong ambition to go back and visit places in India that I have not been to before. The trip with Just You will let me share my emotions with other people who, like me, are seeing iconic sites like the Taj Mahal and the River Ganges for the first time.”
Just You has been the specialist in solo escorted holidays for over 10 years and every trip is designed specifically with the solo traveller in mind. Just You’s existing unrivalled guarantees remain game changers, with Guaranteed Departures, on over 500 individual dates, a Guaranteed Price Promise and Guaranteed Price Match available on every holiday.
“We are very excited that Claire is joining the Just You team as our Travel Ambassador. Just like our customers, she has a passion for travel, a real sense of adventure and while she enjoys being a solo traveller, Claire also loves sharing experiences on holiday with other people,” said Alastair Campbell, Just You’s Managing Director.
