About Karen

Thanks for visiting my website. My name is Karen Follett and I live at Kingscliff on the beautiful North Coast of NSW with my husband and two young children. In the past my travel interests have been that of adventure, taking on everything from white water rafting to bungy jumping and canoeing down the Okavango Delta in Botswana. At this time in my life, my travel interests revolve around family adventures!

Joining MTA - Mobile Travel Agents has been the best thing that I have ever done! The 24-hour support from the Head Office team is second to none and allows me to run my business not only during business hours but after hours as well, which is when my clients need me the most. I am a big believer in personal service and that is why I love that fact that I can come to you. There is nothing better than booking a holiday in the comfort of your own lounge room!

Travel has been a big part of my life since I was a child; growing up with a father who was an International Flight Attendant for Qantas. I was lucky enough to be able to go on many International trips with my dad each year and knew from a very young age that the travel industry was my passion in life.

It seemed natural to then start my career in the travel industry with Harvey World Travel in 1993 and I have worked in this exciting industry ever since. After gaining a few years experience in Australia, I decided to follow my dream and travel to the UK/Europe, where I worked as a travel agent for two years.

It was a great opportunity for me to travel and I could often be found travelling around Britain, Ireland and Europe including Turkey and the Greek Islands. I experienced all sorts of travel such as coach tours, train travel, local ferries, cruises and hop on hop off buses.

On my way back to Australia, I experienced the trip of a lifetime when I travelled around South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana on Safari. There is nothing like seeing wild animals in their own environment and the thrill of white water rafting the Zambezi River was just as exciting if not terrifying! I don't know that I would bungee jump off the bridge at Victoria Falls again though!

After returning from the UK, I worked for Travelworld, previously known as Traveland and during this time, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel to the USA, Thailand, Bali, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Fiji and back to my favourite country - South Africa!

Now that I am too old to do a Contiki Tour (only just!), most of my travel now revolves around my young family. It's all about the kids now and I absolutely love teaching my children about other cultures and allowing them to experience what I did as a child.

I joined MTA – Mobile Travel Agents in March 2010 and in recent times, I have travelled to Canada and experienced the legendary Rocky Mountaineer Train, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Maui and Queenstown.

I get very excited about travelling (even when it isn't me going!) and I absolutely love being responsible for making dreams come true. There is nothing more satisfying to me than a happy client. I put my heart and soul into finding the best value for money holiday to suit the exact needs of my clients and I want you to experience your trip of a lifetime just as I have in my own life.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing my years of knowledge and experience to book your next travel adventure.
