Nicky Knowles

In this post COVID world we live its sure has been a roller coaster ride, but I am confident we are going to emerge out of this stronger and better than before.

A bit about me, I missed my old job being a Travel Agent, so whilst there is not currently enough work around to support me doing what I love full time, getting amongst it and joining up with Travel Advocates on a part time basis is certainly a way of staying in the loop and of course helping you with your travel needs, both domestically in New Zealand or perhaps a bit further afield as the travel bubbles allow.

Those of you that have met me know that I am absolutely passionate about Travel and how it can enrich our lives. I take pride in ensuring that I have understood your needs and circumstances properly so that we, together can make your trip the best it can be. A perfect team.

Get in touch and let’s start planning your next adventure

Ocean Escapes is a full-service travel agency that can assist you with any and all travel arrangements but we will certainly have a focus on cruise, fly/cruise and island escapes.

We have partnered with Travel Advocates who are 100 owned by House of Travel Holdings. This partnership means we have access to great deals from a huge range of suppliers. It also means we will have access to some great tools which will make the whole booking process hassle free.
