Thanks for visiting the House of Travel Parnell page!

The team here at House of Travel Parnell is a little “different” – let me explain!

Over the years we seem to have created a kind of community of customers within the larger Parnell community and it’s this community and the relationships within them that have been the cornerstone of our success.

Sure, we also offer what many travel agents offer – expertise, experience, inspiration, ideas and customer feedback that means we can transform a simple holiday idea into something remarkable and unique to every customer.

But what makes us different, and what we are most proud of, are the efforts we have also put into building long term, trusting relationships with every customer we encounter.

It works, because the better we know them, the better the job we can do on their behalf

So if you are looking to transform a holiday idea into something remarkable and uniquely yours, at a competitive price and you like the idea of working with a team that’s a little “different” please give us a call or pop into our office at 161 Parnell Rise.
