About me

I simply love travel, all aspects of travel.

I am fortunate enough to have travelled extensively for both work and pleasure for well over forty years.

From getting married in Las Vegas, hiking the Great Wall of China, marvelling at iconic sights such as the Taj Mahal and Angkor Wat to coach journeys, river cruises, small and large ship experiences I have loved every single minute.

I have held several wonderful roles within the South Australian Travel Industry ranging from airlines, wholesale, retail, South Australian Business Development Manager for outstanding companies such as Wendy Wu Tours, Trafalgar and until more recently the APT Travel Group.

I now look forward to utilising my skills and expertise to assist you to create your unique journeys. I can help you with ideas, options and planning right through to being only a phone call away whilst you are travelling 24/7.

I live in the North East suburbs of Adelaide and I am very happy to meet with you over a coffee in any area or you are most welcome to contact me via email or telephone.

Wishing you safe and happy travels. Deb

 

 

 

Where I've Travelled

Destinations I'm Passionate About

I am truly passionate about all things cruise. River Cruise, Small Ship Cruising or Large Ship Cruising. This area of travel is growing more quickly than any other form of travel and I completely understand why.

There is a cruise for absolutely everyone. Families, singles, couples and groups.

You can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be and the incredible destinations literally come to you.

There is nothing to think about once you are on board. Stunning scenery, incredible culinary experiences, the culture and colour of exotic destinations. A cruise has it all.

My personal goal is to have cruised all of the major Rivers by 2022. I am well over half way there and cannot wait to experience new and wonderful destinations.

 

Services I Provide

As the proud recipient of the 2017 Global APT “Delight the Customer Award”, I assure you of my attention to detail at all times. You and your travel plans are my priority.

River Cruise – From first hand experience I know that river ships, destinations, styles, offers and inclusions vary greatly. I will assist you in choosing the right river, company, price and ship for you. Be it the Yangtze, Rhine, Rhone, Danube, Douro, Nile, Mekong, Amazon or Volga, there is so much to explore on the rivers of our world. The magic words apply to all “unpack once”.

Small and Large Cruise Ships – With more choice than ever before, Australia continues to see more growth in cruising than any other country. There is a cruise for everyone. It can be confusing so I will help you through the maze to find a ship, an itinerary and a cruise style that completely fits both your needs and your budget.

Flights – Be it economy class, premium economy class, business class, mixed class or first class I will research the best deal for you. There are often deals that are not easy to find but as I am updated daily I will find the right airfare for you.

Escorted Tours – Two people, twenty people or forty people on tour? Fast paced, slow paced, all meals included, minimum inclusions? Let’s discuss your preferred style of travel and I can find you an escorted tour that suits your needs.

Group Travel – There are many ways to put a group together. A group generally consists of ten passengers doing the majority of their journey together. Often this means better savings and inclusions. I have had much experience in Group Travel so would be more than happy to discuss the best way for you to go about this.

Travel Insurance – If you cannot afford Travel Insurance, you cannot afford to travel. I will find the right level of travel insurance at the right price. If for some reason I am not competitive in my pricing I will point you in the right direction of an Insurer who is. I cannot stress how important this is.

Visas – Many countries now require a Visa. Some need to be arranged prior to travel and some on arrival. With rules and regulations changing on a regular basis, I will ensure you have current information in relation to Visas and Passport requirements.

Please remember I am available to you 24/7 whilst you are travelling should you need me.
