About Kylie

I have always been interested in travel as a child growing up. I would play for hours with the family Atlas, dreaming of places so far away that I had only read of in books. So, when my chance came to be an exchange student in Sweden at the end of my schooling, I jumped at the chance and that cemented my love of travelling right there!

I've always felt that to be a great Travel Advisor you need to be excited, passionate, empathetic and always eager to learn. So, when I looked at joining MTA I felt all of these qualities fit with me, and it's these same qualities that I always try to pass onto my clients as well.

After 16 years in the travel industry I joined MTA in November 2010 for its flexibility and passion for travel. I love to give people the holidays they dream about, save up for and finally get to take! My top 3 favourite places to travel are Sweden, Hawaii and South Africa so far but whatever your dream destination is, I can send you there.

Luxury holidays, groups, cruising are my favourite holidays to book, and through opportunities to either travel or study more destinations in depth, the world really is your oyster.

I completing my CLIA Masters Cruise Accreditation January 2017, which is the culmination of 2 years of extra study, training, and cruise experience,

The opportunity to work with specialty luxury groups such as Virtuoso, Orient Express Bellini and Cruiseco has also been a blessing as it allows me to book experiences for my wonderful clients that are not available anywhere else.

Also, if you're ever stuck overseas somewhere and there's anything I can do about it, I will. If you want to book an extra special holiday of your dreams, or something that's a bit more luxurious or different, there is something I can do about it for you, and will.

I look forward to planning your amazing holidays very soon!
