My passion for travel started seriously in 1978 when I commenced planning my OE. After several years living and travelling overseas I returned to NZ with a UK wife. Many years of arranging and 'consuming' family travel (mainly prompted by family circumstances) followed and I decided to make an about turn and become fully involved in this industry and share my passion and experiences. Having lived in and been a part of Howick since 1989 this was the obvious place to be based.


Delivering personal attention has always been one of my drivers and this has resulted in m any delighted clients enjoying and experiencing a wide variety of travel experiences; short breaks to Australia and the Islands, adventure travel in Africa and Asia, Coach touring in UK, Europe and USA, Cruises in many oceans, seas or rivers world wide, self-drive meandering in Europe and School & Sports groups to various overseas destinations are just some examples. My involvement in your travel does not finish until you return.


Given the variety of information and opinions available today, more options in most cases make planning confusing and final decisions even more difficult. I see one of my main roles as assisting clients differentiate cost v convenience choices in their travel plans, making sure what is planned is actually what is wanted and is the most suitable of all the options. Like anything in life, we get what we pay for and value and suitability are the key ingredients.
