EFFECTIVE FRIDAY 10 JUNE ’22 our office in Merivale will be closing and we will be relocating to a new location. Our new office is not far away – just down the road at 233 Papanui Road, next door to Coffee Culture.

However, we won’t be open for a few weeks while a new shop fit out is done.  We hope to reopen mid July.

In the meantime we will have two of our staff working from Northlink House of Travel, 148 Langdons Road, Papanui.  We will also have two of our staff working from home remotely. You can contact us via the normal methods – phone 03-385-0710 or you can email to

While we are in this period of change we would prefer you get in touch with us via email or phone first and if you do wish to see us face to face you will need to make an appointment.

We thank you for your understanding during this time and we cannot wait to welcome you into our new store.

I decided to be a travel agent after getting home from my OE. I lived in Scotland & travelled around Europe – on my own & on a coach. It was amazing & I knew I wanted to help others have their own adventures & experiences. Now I get to do this everyday.
