Tejal Lodhia launched Senzill Travel in August.

It was an idea and passion she had had for some time, but needed to balance being a first-time mother to follow her dreams. Tejal said: “My company, Senzill Travels, was launched a few months ago.

“It was an idea I’ve had for years which has remained that way for some time.

“Progressing a career in project management meant it was never the ‘right time’ to follow my dreams in providing a personalised travel planning service. Having taken the plunge of leaving the corporate world, I’m now focusing on what I love doing best.

“I was inspired to launch my own business in travel planning through my extensive travelling experiences. I was always surprised, from some mainstream websites, at the lack of transparency in their pricing and personalisation of itineraries. I started negotiating with hotels/resorts direct to get the most competitive prices and added benefits.

“Travel planning became a hobby of mine, doing this for friends and family in my spare time. I can honestly say I enjoy nothing more than providing personalised travel itineraries based on my extensive research and consumer reviews, giving my top tips from my experiences and negotiating with hotels/resorts to get the best direct deals.

“My business motto is simple: no catches, no commission – just my transparent fee. I don’t sign up to exclusive arrangements to ensure my customers have a breadth of choice/options. I’m 100% driven on delivering value for money and most recently I was able to save a customer 30% versus mainstream website quotes. I am a mother of a beautiful two-year-old daughter named Shreya.

“I am constantly learning to balance motherhood, family life and personal motivations.

“I moved to Adderbury in 2016 to be closer to family. I’m a planner at heart and I am always ready to travel and see the world.”
