So. What do we do..? Simply put - and we do like to make things both clear, simple and hassle-free for our clients - we specifically arrange personalised, INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED upmarket travel & tour arrangements for travellers to Australia/New Zealand and the SW Pacific, both for holiday and business travellers as well as travel arrangements for meetings, incentives and convention delegates - with a particular emphasis on the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland islands .. (our spiritual Aussie home).
BUYING DIRECT FROM AUSTRALIAN SUPPLIERS
We acknowledge that in today's instant Internet/Web information world that you will in many cases research your trip yourself online and compare our prices direct with product suppliers in Australia (i.e. accommodation, tours, rental car operators etc). We are confident however that the buying power we have with our Australian agents will, in most cases, be equal to - if not better overall - than buying direct from Australian suppliers.
There are also a number of other reasons why we think planning and purchasing your holiday with us is a better option than buying direct from overseas suppliers. Whilst most product suppliers in Australia have excellent web sites and good lead in prices for their products, sometimes however - and we all have experienced this - the product(s), the prices and the service(s) on offer might not 'tell' the full story.
This is where we come in. We are Aussies. We have over 30 years EXTENSIVE experience in all facets of travel, tourism and services products in Australia, as well as (of course!) extensive LOCAL 'know-how' (including geographical knowledge) about Australia on just about everything that matters - and sometimes does not matter! Putting together an extensive Australia itinerary yourself direct is not recommended. Besides the risk of 'not knowing' the area or product(s) and possible consequences, you also run a real financial risk buying travel products or services direct and not through a fully bonded and licensed UK travel company.
Your money is TOTALLY SAFE with us as our UK travel fulfilment partner (Medway Travel) is fully licensed and bonded (ATOL & ABTA). And of course - if another 'ash cloud' crisis happens (very possible) or any number of airline problems, weather problems, itinerary issues with accommodation etc - we are your 'champions' - and we are here to look after you - before - during - and after your trip!

AUSTRALIA: BEST COUNTRY TO VISIT IN THE WORLD!
Australia was again voted as the “Best Country to Visit Worldwide” in the 2013 British Travel Awards by BOTH the travel industry and a public vote of over 700,000 participants. So why is Australia still the best country in the world to visit? Because it simply is - and it’s still extremely AFFORDABLE! For the record however - think - superb weather, friendly laid back locals and a wonderful outdoor lifestyle, beautiful beaches, stunning scenery, the outback and the Great Barrier Reef, a great choice of accommodation for all budgets with stunning luxury island resorts and hotels to modern airy self catering apartments & home-stays plus exciting modern cities buzzing with nightlife, fantastic shopping & world class culture/arts.
