My husband of 35 years and I live in Oamaru. We own a farm at Five Forks, and now lease to our son Carl, his wife Sarah, and grandson Finn. Our other Son Cory is married to Victoria.
My passion for travel spans over 35 years and I have been a Travel Broker for nearly 14 of these years.
Being a Travel Broker gives me the best of both worlds, working flexible hours at home and being able to spend time with my family. I also do volunteer work for Camp Quality South. I have been very fortunate to travel to many countries with my job such as Australia, South Pacific Islands, Alaska, USA, Hawaii, Canada, Asia, China, UK, Scotland, France, Sri Lanka, South America and Amsterdam. The most memorable trip was Borneo, experiencing the wildlife and climbing Mt Kinabalu (4095m which is slightly higher than Mount Cook)!
I will offer a dedicated personal and professional service to ensure you get a hassle free holiday. My job is to take the stress out of planning your holiday– let me take care of the little details that could mean the difference between a holiday and a disaster! You can rely on me to research the best deals and best value for your money. I’m your personalised corporate and leisure travel designer. I now cater to a wide range of travellers, many of whom have rewarded me with their loyalty and trust for many years. With over 30 years experience within the travel industry I aim to be prescient to your all needs and to help you to avoid the many pitfalls that are inadvertently part of “the adventure of travelling”, whatever your destination.
Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, it is not relevant where you or I are located, everything can be arranged remotely . Many of my clients have not met me – and it’s the true and trusted word of mouth, that has built my business up in the past years. It’s no small thing to entrust your faith and hard earned dollars in my hands from another part of the country or recommend me to friends and family, and I respect the gravity of that trust, which is why I am so passionate and successful at making it easy and painless for you to make the most of your travel experience, while I take care of the details.
I’m equally suited to providing corporate or leisure travel arrangements, and will listen to your instructions and provide intelligent choices so you can get the best out of your travel. My commitment to my clients, my personal service and attention to detail, remains my sole focus as always. I get much personal satisfaction in planning a trip to fit your dreams and desires and of course your budget!
Although the internet provides a lot of information, my clients regularly highlight the fact that they still need an expert to co-ordinate all of their bookings at one central point with the bonus of offering the experience, security and professional advice. That together with the peace of mind that you have an expert to talk to you about your trip, who will ensure that you get what you want, is the very reason travel brokers are so successful. So call me, before you plan or book your next trip and save endless hours searching the internet for the ‘alleged’ best deal!
To my existing clients, thank you for your continued loyalty and for your many referrals.
I look forward to hearing from you all soon.
"For anyone thinking about going overseas on a trip/holiday or to work....I would highly recommend for you to use Lynne Sinclair as your travel agent!! Lynne is one of the main reason I had such a enjoyable time overseas and a fantastic summer around Europe! Lynne was a great help when I was booking flights and especially when I had to get on a flight straight away and fly home and also very useful when wanting to book on tours. It was as easy as just sending a Facebook message to Lynne mentioning what I was interested in and she would find out all the details and get back to me with quotes and what would be the best option for me. Thanks to Lynne's help I was booked onto the running of the Bulls tour, La Tomatina festival tour and a 10 day tour around Egypt. Thanks for all your help Lynne and no doubt I will hopefully be in touch again soon."Olivia Callaghan - Fairlie
