As individual as you are.

Whether you’re planning an annual break, a bucket list holiday or your next business trip, a personal travel manager will make it a wonderful experience. With personal travel managers having on average over 10 years travel experience each, they will take care of all your travel arrangements and provide that insider information to save you time and create a trip that is tailored just for you.

TravelAdvocates is part of the House of Travel family. Since first opening in New Zealand in 1986, House of Travel has grown into the largest independent travel company in Australasia. This means that not only do our personal travel managers have access to amazing travel deals, but customers are provided with the security that their money is secure through the booking process.

What’s a personal travel manager?

The internet and related technology, together with 24/7 remote access and centralised systems paved the way for people to work at home. And the future of travel consulting without a traditional retail shop was born. Just like in the banking industry, you think ‘personal banker or mortgage broker’, or in the fitness industry you think ‘personal trainer’, the future for travel is a ‘personal travel manager’.

Today, our Australasian network of 500 home-based and mobile personal travel managers create bespoke experiences. Clients see the real benefits of personalised and convenient service, with all the technology and back office systems that a ‘traditional’ retail agent provides.

More than ever, clients are looking for security and someone they can call on if the need arises during their travels.
