About Us

Established in Orewa in 1976, there’s no denying our local credentials as Orewa’s longest serving and most loved travel agency on the Hibiscus Coast.  Our team has a combined travel experience of over 100 years but it’s really our reputation for our friendly, reliable and extremely knowledgeable service that we value the most.

 

Wanderlust

Our love of travel is what makes everyone in our team want to share their experiences with every client we have the privilege to meet. Over the years, we have all taken every opportunity to travel to wide and varied countries to increase our knowledge and ensure we are in a position to place the right customer with right experience – like you we are travelers!

To help us recommend the best itineraries, options and extras for your travel experience, we also continually invest in training, making sure we keep ahead of any travel trends. 

 

Cruises

Cruising is one of our main strengths in this agency. Kiri & Patrick are qualified Cruise Masters (the highest qualification possible) and we also have two CLIA accredited consultants in our team.

 

Community

We maintain a strong engagement with our local community. As locals who have grown up here and attended local colleges, we look to actively engage in and give back to our amazing Coast community.

Our business values are centred on honesty and integrity with all the people we deal with and these values are encouraged and demonstrated by our team every day. In a small community this is extremely important, and we do our upmost to exceed our customer’s expectations in every way. 

 

Connections

Our membership with First Travel Group is a good fit for us as they share these same values.

We are also TAANZ bonded members which provides assurance and protection to our customers – our staff are Accredited Travel Advisors who comply with Quality standards, ethical business practices, safe travel, unbiased options and professionalism.
