About Me

I believe in taking the time to create a personal connection, so I can design a travel itinerary tailored to your preferences.

By arranging your travel through me, you are able to directly benefit from my unique knowledge and expertise.

I’ve planned trips all over the world, so I’m an expert in piecing together the small details that really make a difference. From needing US currency on arrival in Vietnam, to navigating entry visas into any country – I can provide answers to questions you didn’t even know to ask.

I’m also a strong believer in tailoring your style of travel to suit the location; while some destinations call for five-star resorts, I think others are best experienced as the locals do.
As an independent broker, I have the flexibility to fit in around your schedule and work in a way that suits you, wherever you are – whether it is catching up at a café, or over Skype, FaceTime, emails or phone calls. I’m also available 24/7 should you find yourself in an emergency situation overseas or in urgent need of a change in travel plans.

I have been a travel consultant for almost 15 years and have my own business, Departure Bespoke Travel. At Departure, we have a range of clients throughout New Zealand, Australia and as far afield as China and the US – from first-time travellers to families and retired couples, as well as corporate organisations.

Under the umbrella of New Zealand Travel Brokers, Departure has all the backing of a large travel organisation, including customer protection and insurance, yet we are able to take a much more personalised approach. I am also a member of Travel Agents Association New Zealand (TAANZ).

Why Use A Travel Broker?

  1. I have access to a huge range of travel specials and deals.
  2. I’m a one stop shop for all travel. Flights, cruises, tours, rental cars – I can book it all.
  3. I’m your travel troubleshooter. If you run into the unexpected, call me. I’ll get it sorted.
  4. I’ll come to you – I’m happy to meet you at a cafe or after hours to chat about your plans.
  5. I’m a local business, not an anonymous website or company based halfway around the world.

If you have any travel plans, or if you’d like a quote, please get in touch – I’m happy to help!
