Linda’s passion for travel began when she left New Zealand for her big OE, and commenced working with an Adventure Tour Operator based in Holland.
30 years later she still loves everything about travel!
After living, working and travelling extensively throughout Europe for 6 years, Linda returned to New Zealand and continued working in travel. Her vast personal travel experience has subsequently grown to include unique places in Africa, Asia, South America, USA, Caribbean and the Middle East, not to forget destinations that are closer to home in Australia, around the South Pacific and various cruising destinations.
Providing ‘the finest service’ to her clients through her extensive travel knowledge is what Linda does best. Linda believes that travel is a very personal thing and building a friendly relaxed relationship to ensure a lasting and rewarding travel experience for her many loyal clients is very important to her. Linda’s clients also have the added assurance that she’s available for them 24/7, wherever in the world they may be!

My experience with Linda has been absolutely amazing and she is by far the best travel agent I have ever worked with in my life. We had a large group of us travelling to Peru during Covid-19, with various country requirements and restrictions, plus our group had different routes we needed to take to get there. Not only did Linda map out the complexity of the situation with ease, but her attitude was also extremely professional, helpful and level-headed. I could count on her to get us to our very important event and she sure did! She got us on the best flights and I knew if we had any hiccups along the way she would be right there to help.
Linda is very prompt, intelligent and a travel agent that I truly trust. In the past I have always booked my own travel but having Linda on your side is truly worth it and I will use her services for my travel in the future. I highly recommend using Linda as your travel agent.Bonnie
My travel from a very young age has always been fun times seeing the other side of the world. It was my dream to travel the world and I was very lucky to have walked in the door of the local travel agent and be greeted by Linda. From that day forward she has looked after me on my travels around the world and as an Elite traveller with Air New Zealand Linda has made it a wonderful experience each time with hassle free bookings and always going the extra mile to offer me that extra experience and knowledge she has. I will never forget the time when I was stuck in Italy with the Iceland volcanic ash all over Europe and Linda got me out on the first flight from Zurich which was one of the first flights in the air that day.
Thanks for the great service.Shayne KingWorld Motocross Champion 1996
Linda Simpson Lina came to us highly recommended by business colleagues within the international Real Estate brand Harcourts.
My wife and I had always booked our own travel to “Keep It Cheap” so were initially hesitant to phone a travel agent. But once we engaged Linda we quickly realised what we had been missing.
Linda is the consummate travel professional who “knows her industry inside and out”, provides practical and fantastic travel solutions, delivers precise travel itineraries and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing is ever a problem for Linda and she “Bends Over Backwards” to accommodate the most complex travel requests.
Travel brokering isn’t just a job for Linda, it is her passion and once you have experienced her expertise you realise what great hands you are in.
Linda has now organised several large overseas itineraries for my wife and I and our family, but one trip in particular demonstrates the qualities Linda possesses, not only a travel professional, but as a person.
Approximately two years ago my daughter contracted meningococcal meningitis in Canada. The doctors told us to get on the “First Plane Out”. This was at ten o’clock on a Friday night. First port of call - Linda Simpson Lina. Linda worked through the night organising how we could get from New Plymouth, in Taranaki to Vancouver Canada in the shortest possible time. By two o’clock Saturday morning Linda had flights booked for us and we arrived in Canada within twenty four hours.
It really doesn’t get any better than that, so we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Linda to anyone looking for prompt, professional and stress free help with any travel requirements.Shane & Annette RoweRowe Ratahi Realty Limited
