Kristine, you have organized numerous trips for my family and I. Trips to Europe, Africa, South America, Argentina, Fiji as well as overseas family travelling to New Zealand. From family travelling to and from various locations, to traveling on my own. You took all the stress away and helped create wonderful travel experiences. I greatly appreciated the communication throughout the planning process, and keeping us organized with clear schedules, seamless flight connections, transfers, organizing local guides and amazing accommodation. And most of all making it possible for me to travel on my own with confidence. Your knowledge and willingness to leave no stone unturned to meet our requirements have made these trips of a lifetime. I also can’t thank you enough for all the hard work you have put into get refunds for travel and accommodation for the 2020 family (7 adults and 5 children) trip to Europe and Asia we had to cancel due to Covid. The family and I can’t wait to plan our next trip with you.

Delize Delaney

Kristine has been our travel agent for many years and has used her wide knowledge to organise numerous overseas trips for us. She coordinates our ideas into an itinerary that makes sense and always makes
sure that the flights and seats are the best available. Her knowledge of accommodation and tours worldwide has been extremely helpful and the travel documentation is clear and consise and contains details of all the flights, accommodation, visa requirements and payments.

She responds to any queries immediately and over the last year managed to claw back virtually all the payments made for our trips cancelled due to Covid.

We would definitely recommend Kristine

Lynne Linton

Kristine has been my travel broker for over 10 years and I would have no hesitation in recommending the great service she provides. Kristine has always sought the best value, best suited option for my business and personal trips. She listens carefully and her follow up and checking of details is superb. I have always felt completely looked after and her service is above and beyond.

Jenny Drury

Kristine is the most efficient, kind and incredibly helpful travel agent. She goes above and beyond what is expected and we adore her. We highly recommend her for any travel.

Paul and Liz Blackwell

Kristine has been our Travel Broker for over 7 years. Her professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail has earned our trust and respect, and resulted in my wife and I having the pleasure of stress free and thoroughly enjoyable travel experiences over the years she has looked after us.

Travel arrangements organised by Kristine have included our personal overseas travel, (some complex and multi-stop), and our family reunions, involving members travelling from various overseas countries. One of those had her coordinate a family wedding at an overseas destination. Kristine also looks after the travel arrangements of a family member studying on the east coast of America. She has been responsible for arranging his travel back to New Zealand over the last few years to see family, and has done so again in the last four months despite the difficulties with flight schedules due to Covid.

Over the years Kristine has also arranged and coordinated group staff incentive trips on a yearly basis to various overseas locations for my business. These have been done with precision, and she has demonstrated her patience and skills to coordinate individual requests and additional travel requirements within these large groups.

It is without hesitation we have the pleasure to highly recommend Kristine as our Travel Broker.
