Is amazing service and a high level of travel experience really important to you?
Do you struggle to find the time to research the best travel deals?
Let me be your Travel Professional!
Travel has been a life long passion of mine, there’s nothing more satisfying than assisting my clients plan their overseas adventures – whether business or leisure, I continually strive to provide my clients the very best knowledge, service and expertise they can ask for.
I’ve been in the Travel Industry since 1981 and made the exciting career move to being a self employed Travel Broker in 2001. This has given me wider ranging opportunities and the flexibility to book clients on the best priced/value for money flights, accommodation, tours or cruising options without being aligned to or supporting any one particular supplier.
Working for a large company like NZ Travel Brokers is invaluable by giving my clients and myself security and access to a huge selection of highly competitive travel deals. I always invest a large amount of time when planning itineraries to ensure I have chosen the best options that suit each individual clients needs. I can cater to all your customized travel requirements taking care of absolutely everything and turn your dreams into reality!
Throughout my time in the travel industry I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, the USA, Canada, Hawaii, South America, the UK & Europe, including cruising & catamaran charters. This enables me to offer professional and knowledgeable first-hand advice for numerous exciting & exotic destinations throughout the world.
I have a very loyal and diverse client base and I’m always interested in expanding my horizons so don’t hesitate to contact me today regarding your travel plans .. I would love to hear from you!
Ange has a great ‘nothing is a problem’ attitude and a wealth of experience, which makes planning and booking travel with her such a pleasure.
We have every confidence in the recommendations she makes and have never regretted the choices we have made with her guidance.Christine & Chris
I have been a client of Ange’s for roughly 10 years now.
She has planned our holidays which have ranged from a 10 day holiday over to the Gold Coast with our children to our “bigger than Ben Hur” trip of a lifetime over to the UK, Italy, Croatia and a Med cruise last year.
Ange is nothing but professional and I have found her so helpful and very approachable which in my mind goes a long way. I would never hesitate to contact Ange for any holiday that we are thinking of doing in the future. Even though our holidays are arranged via emails I always feel like I am right there in the office with her.
I would always recommend Ange (and I do !!) to anyoneJoanne Hurren
Ange has been our Travel Broker for our business & personal interests for many years now. What we appreciate most about Ange is her commitment to our needs.
We have been stuck in London as a result of Volcanic ash threatening airspace and therefore all of Heathrow Airport was closed – no flights. However, Ange would be working tirelessly at all hours of the night to get us somehow to our next destination for our work commitments. That is just one example of going the ‘extra mile’.
We always appreciate the additional considerations that Ange will try to add to our overseas travel commitments. Offering insights that you just don’t get through trying to do it by yourself on the internet. This could be in the form of Ange’s personal experience from a particular location or maybe just understanding her industry so well that she has most aspects of travel needs covered.
We recently were advised by Ange to get a personal guide around Morocco & that was a master stroke. That holiday turned out to be one of the best due to a little extra thought from Ange as to how we could maximize the experience. Nothing is ever a problem, Ange will always find a solution & well before you would even know you had a problem!
We love that anytime of the day, Ange will respond to phone calls or an email. That’s important when you need clarity to your travel plans & to have someone on hand to deal with the many questions you may have.Justin & Eterei Stonelake
Putting this quite simply – my life has been made easier by having met Ange!
When I need to make any travel bookings at all, I don’t even think about going to online options as a starting point. Why would I when Ange has consistently proven that she can get better deals and solutions to complex travel needs than I can achieve myself whilst wasting countless hours online?
All hail Ange – you are my travel planning saviour!!Martin Abert - Function Eight
Having dealt with many Travel Agents over the years I have never come across one so friendly, organised and absolutely amazing at what she does.
Last year Angela organised our 6 week trip to the UK, Europe and Dubai. Our tickets and Itinerary were so organised we didn’t have to think about a thing and the whole trip went so smoothly. We have used Angela on many occasions now and if we have ever had any problems when overseas, through no fault of her own, she has rectified it straight away.
I have recommended Angela to many of my friends and they have been very grateful for it.Tracey Oliver
Upon deciding to take a big family trip to the USA and Canada for the first time, we contacted Ange to assist us with our plans. Two adults, two teenagers and not a lot of travel experience! To say that Ange was wonderful would be an under-statement.
From the very beginning Ange was approachable, down to earth, extremely good at communicating with us in a professional and timely way, and above all calm – in the face of some, at times, panicky clients!. We booked all the excellent accommodation options she recommended and all were fantastic. We had not one hitch with our flights, hotel accommodation, sightseeing. Ange’s travel knowledge and tips on what to do meant that we have experienced a never to be forgotten family holiday.
It is without hesitation that we highly recommend Ange to all travellers looking for a special travel broker.Paula and Steve Fitzgerald
Angela Lester goes that extra mile to ensure that our trips are always so seamless and easy.
She will often contact the hotels to ensure that they are able to suit our needs which is great if you are going off the beaten track.
I have no hesitation in recommending Angela for all of your travel needs no matter how complex they may be.Rob & Linley Parry
Thank you for organising our family holiday to USA, Canada and Hawaii last year.
We always go to you first for organising any overseas travel as you make it so easy for us. The options you give us let us make a decision based on our requirements and our likes. Your ideas and suggestions are always valued and we love that you have travelled to some of the same places we have been to.
It is never a hassle with you to make changes which we greatly appreciate. We will always continue to use your services when booking our overseas holidays. I’ve happily recommended you to family and friends who have also had great travel experiences through booking with you.
We look forward to planning our next trip with you.Wendy Gatward - Soul Organics
For over ten years I have been working with Angela of NZ Travel Brokers to manage my business and personal travel arrangements.
The arrangements have been many and varied, from groups of 60 people to organising to send my 13 year old daughter to the states for the first time on her own. It would be fair to say that no airline is perfect and its been very reassuring to have Angela to help out when connections fail to arrive on time.
Angela has never failed to deliver the right information and is always prompt and accurate with her responses to my questions.Simon Meade
Thank you Ange, for your kindness and patience and utter professionalism.
You have been amazing to deal with, and we will use you over and over again in the future. You really have gone above and beyond.
A huge thank you again for all you have done for us, we so appreciate it.Jeni

You really have gone above and beyond.Jeni
Ange has always been very professional for what we have requested in the form of travel and accommodation...
The last trip we made to the UK, I requested that the holiday to be reduced by 3 weeks because of personal reasons & without hesitation Ange had both my wife and I rebooked on a flight home, it was great ¬ a problem..
The last trip we made did involve flights, accommodation, train travel across Australia, all went without a hitch.
We certainly would recommend Anges services to our friends. This Covid 19 has slowed up our travel somewhat, but never fear we will definitely be back again.Les & Fay
