I was bitten by the “travel bug” over 20 years ago on my first overseas trip backpacking around Europe. I have since travelled extensively to over 40 countries and just love exploring new destinations. While I now prefer my suitcase with wheels and comfortable hotels rather than my backpack and hostels, my love of travel has not changed. If anything my “to do” list just keeps getting longer.
My travel career began with a major retail chain in a busy Sydney CBD location. In my 10 years with that company I held positions as a Retail Consultant, Assistant Team Leader, Corporate Travel Account Manager and then transferred home where I became Team Leader of the local store here in Albury.
I joined TravelManagers in May 2010 and absolutely love being a Mobile Personal Travel Manager. While I did enjoy my time in a busy retail office, I love that I am now able to give each of my clients the time and service they deserve. I get to spend more quality time with each client, planning and preparing their holidays of a lifetime.
My clients love that I am available to see them at a place and time convenient to them and they no longer have to waste time lining up to see me.

“Karen is the only travel agent I use. I just give her an outline of my upcoming travel and she gets back very quickly with a suggested itinerary. She understands the cost and time constraints faced by my organisation, and manages to find well-priced tickets with minimal airport wait times. When travelling, it is reassuring to know that Karen is only a phone call or email away. More than once I have contacted her with from a far-flung locale when an airline has delayed my flights and she has quickly sorted out updated itineraries and airline refunds. It’s this personalised service and industry knowledge that makes Karen indispensable.”
“Karen put together the itinerary for our first overseas trip to Europe. We had about 4 weeks to see as much as we could in England, France and Italy. It was the need for time efficiency both in planning and in our time overseas that Karen was invaluable. She quickly grasped our needs and preferences allowing her to offer only those options she felt would suit us, and she was very accurate! Once overseas, it was her extensive travel knowledge that became evident. She had constructed our itinerary perfectly so that we would get as much in as possible, while at no point feeling exhausted or overwhelmed. On our return she was interested in how the trip had gone and facilitated organising a refund for us on an unused day tour. All in all, we have no hesitation in recommending Karen Whitehead and will utilise her services again for future trips abroad!
