Laura Jeffrey, Owner and Director of Passepartout
Laura founded Passepartout in 2010. With over a decade’s experience in the travel industry, including five with the well-respected boutique tour operator Cazenove+Loyd managing their Asia department, Laura has the passion and expertise to curate the perfect holiday.
Travel to Asia can be daunting but with the right team behind every trip, the black book of contacts Laura has developed and with first hand expertise from years of travel to the region, she can ensure you get to the heart of this complex and fascinating continent.
Best moment in Asia: Flying in a helicopter over the remote glacial waters and brilliantly stark moonscapes of the Upper Mustang region of the Tibetan Plateau and spending the night under the stars in the company of the local nomadic community.
Sally Jeffrey, Company Secretary
With decades of intrepid and individual travel adventures, Sally joined Passepartout as Company Secretary. She manages payments to our suppliers, maintains our records and, from time to time, travels on our behalf vetting and exploring new locations and services.
She adds to our team of travel experts a sideways view of the less well known, the quirky corners of local culture with her in depth knowledge of architecture, gardens, literature and textiles all the while soaking up regional food and music.
Running her own business for more than two decades, Sally provides Passepartout Travel with a strong office base.
Gurpreet Sahota, Executive Assistant
Gurpreet is Laura’s right hand woman and has been an essential member of the team since 2013. Working closely with Sally, she is responsible for the slick administration at Passepartout and having previously worked with Oberoi Luxury Resorts as Guest Relations Manager, she has a passion for customer service and understands the importance of communicating the smallest of details to the hotels and ground handlers and ensuring that every little aspect is taken care of so that we are able to offer the most comfortable holiday possible.
Gurpreet is based out of India which has proved to be an asset as we have one of our own frequently to review all that the Indian Subcontinent has to offer.
Working from home, Gurpreet is also the primary carer for her little girl, apple of her eye.
