We are often asked if we provide vacation planning services to other countries. The answer is yes. Over the years we have developed relationships and links with high quality providers in a broad range of countries.
The obvious ones are Australia, Fiji and the Cook Islands. We have combined itineraries in the past which have allowed clients to spend some time in these places as well as in New Zealand. Australia, however, is a different matter and we are proud to have as partners over there Alquemie and Wild Bush Luxury.
We also belong to a number of associations/lists which bring with them contacts throughout the world at the same level:
Traveller Made - a new European-led grouping of top travel designers and their favourite country specialists, on the lines of Virtuoso, but a little higher-end. They awarded us the inaugural prize for the most creative travel designer in the world. We love them :)
The Experience List - a peer group association of top-end inbound companies
Shackleton & Selous - a prestigious association of country specialists seen as world leaders in their fields. These tend to be world leaders to wild places. A different style of travel which we also encompass, as well as the more obvious New Zealand places.
Conde Nast Traveler - one of only 146 top specialists in the world with these guys
Travel + Leisure - one of the 130-odd on the A-List
Quite apart from giving us quite an extensive contact network within our profession, we all also meet during the year at various events and can share best practice. And yes - no one else in New Zealand has such a line-up of accolades.
