My 35 years and varied experience within the travel industry has provided me with a wealth of information which I enjoy sharing with others. This knowledge combined with my own personal travel experiences has been enjoyed by my own family, in particular by my daughter Madeleine who has now joined with me as a Personal Travel Manager. She lives in Newcastle but will be a great help to me in busy times while she learns more of the business and builds her own younger client base. As Personal Travel Managers, we are able to provide a personalised, family consulting service, at a time and place convenient to all of our clients.
You can contact Madi on 0401 444 519 for a quote or booking, or to arrange a time to discuss your travel plans.
Over the years I have enjoyed working in various positions in the travel industry in both Retail and Wholesale Agencies in Sydney, as well as over 11 years with the one agency in my hometown of Dubbo. Both Madeleine and myself enjoyed our careers as Flight Attendants with TigerAir and ANSETT, respectively, which gave us an insight into another side of travel as well as giving me the opportunity to discover many parts of Australia and the Pacific. My travel experiences have been memorable and have travelled as a backpacker, a cycling tour, rail travel in Europe, Cruising as well as enjoying some wonderful 5 star experiences. Destinations include Europe and the United Kingdom, the West Coast of America, Hawaii, Canada, South Africa, South America, Bali, Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand, Middle East, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Fiji and the Pacific, Singapore and Vietnam – with some of my favourites being Fiji, Vietnam and Europe as a whole but in particular Italy and France. Madi has enjoyed travels to New Zealand, Vietnam, Fiji, Thailand and Europe and is keen to share her experiences and knowledge with existing and new clients.
Travel is a wonderful experience for all of us – whether it be a weekend away, a honeymoon, family vacation or a Round the World First Class trip I will provide the same attention to detail my clients expect from an experienced, caring and professional Personal Travel Manager. So whatever or wherever your dreams for travel may be, I will be happy to share the journey with you and assist you with the preparation of your trip and will also enjoy listening to your stories on your return. I provide a personalized, professional service via email, phone and will meet with you by appointment either in your own home, a local cafe and for those in Regional areas I will go that extra mile and come to you. I am also available, as required, for my existing clients for emergency travel arrangements. If planning your travel arrangements outside of normal business hours is more convenient, then I am happy to make an appointment with you and meet you at a suitable location. I look forward to bringing the world to you and then hearing about your adventures on your return home.
