Liz Blakeborough provides fast, effective, responsive travel PR.
And she’s nice with it too.
Liz Blakeborough is one of the most professional PRs with whom I deal regularly; quick to respond to requests for information and ready to offer original ideas – which is most appreciated by someone who has to fill a page of The Times every week with informative and up-to-date travel copy.

All of us at 101 have worked with Liz for many years. She does a great job for her clients – and for us – in ensuring we receive timely, well-researched and targeted ideas and information. She is quick to respond to any requests and is a pleasure to work with.

I work with a lot of travel PRs and Liz Blakeborough is one of the best. She has real in depth knowledge of the travel market and knows what a journalist needs from it. It’s always a pleasure working with Liz.
Running a one man band PR operation in these penny-pnching days is far from easy. Liz Blakeborough manages it because she finds unusual clients, and then divines the angle which invariably makes arresting copy.
Liz Blakeborough is a pleasure to work with. I have always found her to be highly efficient, quick and receptive to ideas. She has a pro-active, diligent approach to PR. She never promises something she can not deliver. I have complete confidence in her and her team.
Liz Blakeborough has been an vital part of Prestige Holidays’ public face for 13 years. She is extremely professional, creative and persistent when necessary. She is also very well connected with both consumer and travel trade media. I am delighted to add that I have enjoyed working with her for almost 20 years
Chairman and Managing Director
Liz hit the ground running on her appointment, and managed immediately to set up some fantastic interviews with major travel editors so that we could explain our concept, which has vastly improved our exposure. Since her appointment she has consistently produced a great stream of coverage for Premier Cottages, originating both from press releases she has prepared and journalist visits she has organised. Her approach is intelligent and responsive, and we are comfortable that she understands where we are trying to position ourselves. Her great contacts and experience have been invaluable in helping us develop our profile in the press.
Liz’s travel PR expertise and initiatives have been critical in building our business from the initial launch to ongoing media coverage. From day one Liz sought to understand Sheepskin, our products and consumers and to tailor her PR message and media target accordingly.
Liz’s energy and proactive approach has resulted in Sheepskin achieving consistent press coverage across a range targeted media and has helped to position our brand and self catering cottage portfolio as a differentiated and premium offering recognised by editors, journalists and most importantly our consumers.
I have long rated Liz as one of the top PR consultants who manages, on behalf of her clients, not only to be speedily reactive to journalist requests for information (on destinations, prices of packages, product information etc) but creatively proactive in generating ideas for stories.
