We are the team dedicated to finding the holiday to suit you! Perhaps somewhere with great food, food that also feeds your soul. Or a great value family holiday full of priceless memories. Wherever it is you dream about, we can make a reality.
So we invite you to come visit us in store and meet our team. We have over 100 years of combined travel experience, and a lot more life experience that some of us would care to acknowledge! Here you’ll begin the journey on your dream holiday.
Sometimes it is hard to believe it’s our job to build dreams. It’s a wonderful reward for us to hear about the awesome experiences of our clients (the HOT family) on return from their various holiday destinations. We are here to assist, inspire and take away any worries you may have, and save you possibly the most valuable commodity in modern society, time! We use our knowledge and experience doing what we do best; finding the best connections, destinations and documentation details so that all set in place for the holiday tailored specifically to suit you.
Have you ever wondered why people build sandcastles? All that time and effort to building to what purpose as it will just get washed away? We have thought about it, and our answer is that at the end of the day we know that life is not about the things you have, or that you can tangibly touch, but about the experiences and enjoyment of the many memories we create. And that’s what holidays are all about, enriching lives through travel.

Jill’s overseas operators and tour organisers are almost always people with whom she has a personal connection and who are experts at tour planning.
If you would like to receive a full itinerary of any of these tours, it’s very easy! Either call Moray on 03 3341 3900 or email her at email@example.com and we will have the info to you straightaway. Moray can also help with your queries about flights and travel before and after the tour.

What happens if, when you are on a JW Tour in Australia, there is a community case of Covid-19? There’s a link here to the New Zealand Government’s website that covers this issue in great detail but in short the policy is one of Continue, Pause or Suspend. With any travel delays, providing all bookings are made through House of Travel, we will make any necessary rearrangements. If travel is suspended, we can’t bear the cost of any extra day’s accommodation and living expenses, but we will do everything we can to mitigate the extra expense. Jill will also be on hand at all times to help with all necessary rearrangements, to look after you during any pause in travel and to make sure your tour remains as stress-free as possible!
