Tony Boomer on a cruise, yeah right! Constant exposure to, quite frankly, astounding ships visiting Dunedin prompted him to take the plunge and head off to Singapore on Air New Zealand and Princess Cruises to take in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Phuket aboard the Sapphire Princess.

Italy for most is a dream destination, so when Antony Boomer was offered the chance to spend 10 days here as part of a Trafalgar guided holiday he jumped at the chance without actually knowing where exactly he was going... it was Italy, it'll be good!

I have been wanting to take my boys somewhere extraordinary for ages. We have previously traveled, as a family, well worn routes through North America and Australia. Now my wife and I thought it was time to challenge everything they thought they knew about the world. We decided on Vietnam in the hope it would provide a physical, emotional and sensory experience the boys would never forget.

Hospice New Zealand

House of Travel Otago has been supporting Hospice New Zealand since 2005 and the organisation is very close to our hearts. Each of our stores work with their local hospice services to support them by raising money and awareness, volunteering their time for fundraising, and donating prizes and “Armchair Traveller” sessions. A highlight of this partnership is the Embrace Award presented annually to a HOT outlet who has integrated its local hospice into every aspect of its business. The award is the hospice’s way of giving big ups to its local House of ‚ÄčTravel Otago team for all their hard work and dedication.


Hi there, I'm just wanting to send some feedback through about one of your amazing consultants down in the Alexandra office in Central Otago.  We booked with Jessica Garden for our holiday to Perth, and nothing was a problem.  Adding things on, switching things around, providing recommendations, she did it all with a massive smile and nothing was a problem.   

When we went to fly out, our flight ended up being majorly delayed (then cancelled) which then meant all our connection flights through to Exmouth weren't going to happen.   I called Jess in a bit of a panic and she was so reassuring and put us at ease.  The airline sorted out all our connecting flights, but Jess worked overtime (literally) to rearrange all our travel plans, accommodation, and hire car (essentially flipping our holiday around) so that we wouldn't miss out on anything we had planned.  On arrival in Perth we had a brand new itinerary waiting for us in my email account and everything was all sorted and ready for us to enjoy.  She did such an amazing job!! 

I just wanted to pass this on to you guys to let you know what an amazing team member you have working for you.  Can you please pass this on to her management as I would love to see her receive the recognition that she deserves.  She went entirely above and beyond for us, not only once, but twice in the same holiday.  What a star.  Normally I shop around on price, but from now on I will only be booking our holiday travel through her.  You have made a customer for life. 

Good work guys, and a massive thanks to Jess. 

Well done, Kate

Take time to talk with the locals. You’ll meet some amazing people & come back more enriched from your holiday
