About Amanda

I have worked in travel for the last 28 years. My specialty is leisure travel. My favourite types of holidays are skiing, beach, shopping, culture, cruise, eco tourism, wellness, history and luxury. I have 2 teenage children so I understand what's important when you travel with kids of all ages.
I love researching destinations, so even if I haven't travelled to where you want to go, trust that I will fully investigate the best options for you and your personal requirements.

Previous experience

I have worked for high end luxury leisure travel agencies. I have also worked in Business Development for the Holiday Inn group of hotels and Virgin Australia. Plus, I spent a few years with CIBT who specialise in travel visa applications. Therefore, I understand the back office systems of hotels, airlines and the intricacy of dealing with Consulates and Embassies.
