Meet The Team

Leanne Swithenbank

I have worked at Total Travel from Day 1, and previously with Katie for nearly 15 years at Heckmondwike as Assistant Manager, I am also the wedding specialist, I have some fab contacts with tour operators and  I love making dreams come true.

I enjoy meeting my customers and finding a great holiday to suit their needs.

I love my holidays and have been to many European Beach destinations and UK holiday centres too. My best experience to date was a Day Trip to Lapland, my 2 young children loved it and it was worth every penny seeing their faces light up.

And its not all about holidays, many of my customers bob in for a coffee and a chat…….I look forward to seeing you soon.

I have travelled quite extensively round Europe and have spent a lot of years holidaying in Florida. I have recently been on a couple of Mediterranean Cruises, with Royal Caribbean and NCL, which have been amazing, I have definitely got the cruising bug.

Katie Butler

My name is Katie and I am the Owner/Manager of Total Travel. I have worked in travel since leaving school (so a good while now). Total Travel was established in 2013, formerly a Travelcare and the Co-Operative Travel store, the branch was taken over by Thomas Cook who soon after the takeover decided to close the store. I have always dreamed of having my own agency and so when it was deciced the branch would be closed it was my perfect opportunity to take on the shop as my very own agency.

I have travelled to many of the Spanish beach areas, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey and also cruised on the Norwegian Epic. My favourite holiday to date was Mexico, the people, the beaches and the choice of restaurants in the hotels are just amazing. I look forward to finding your dream holiday.


Kath Sutton

My name is Kath Sutton. I have worked in travel for nearly 30 years, and was manager for over 25 years. I am married and have 1 boy called Max. I got married in Las Vegas at the Little White Chapel.

I have travelled to many wonderful places and visited lots of different countries, from Europe and the Med, Greece, Hawaii, Florida, Caribbean and China.

One of my favorite experiences was definitely a tour of China, walking the Great Wall and seeing the Forbidden City.

I love finding out about my customers and what they want out of their holiday, so I can find their perfect getaway.
