Jason & Linda Kroupa opened their Travel Agency in the same location as it is today, when they returned from their Big OE in 1996 when Jason was 25 and Linda just 22. They live and breathe travel, a genetic trait that they have passed on to their children!

With many awards and citations including "Travel Agent of the Year" Jason & Linda operate a highly respected travel company focused on old fashioned small town customer service. In a small town you can never rest on your laurels says Linda. If you give poor service even just once word gets out and the whole town knows about it. This high service ethos has been discovered by a growing number of loyal customers from all over the country. 

Our very experienced team offer you so much more than booking online.  They all love to travel, and happy to take the time to chat with you about your plans – working together, with you. 

Putting a holiday together is like a huge jigsaw puzzle. It is our job using our training and experience to put all the pieces together in the most logical, cost effective manner to create a masterpiece. A travel experience that is well paced, great value and unforgettable. An itinerary that is simple to follow, loaded with travel tips, that takes in the major sights as well as some hidden gems, with time to stop and smell the roses and savour a cool glass of rosé.

What our customers are saying

HOT Motueka staff travel

Tanya enjoyed Malaysia & Vietnam in September. As well as a stopover in KL, she enjoyed the beaches & sights of Penang, before joining a Gecko’s small group tour of Vietnam. An amazing experience!

Linda & Dianne enjoyed a week in Singapore – watching the Silver Ferns win the Silver Medal at the Netball World Cup. We are now keenly preparing for the next World Cup in August 2015 in Sydney. We are keen to hear from anyone who would like to join us!

Dianne packed up the family (hubby & 3 boys) and spent 4 weeks exploring the West Coast USA. As well as enjoying the sights of San Francisco, Las Vegas, Disney, Hollywood – they explored the National Parks and the many wonders of this vast area. Great family time – fantastic country to explore!

Linda & Jason have just enjoyed a week’s family holiday with their (6y & 2y) kids on the Gold Coast. It reminded us what a great value destination it is. For the 1st time we booked a beachfront apartment, which was fantastic (once we got use to the noise of the sea!!).

Also, Linda & Jason ‘answered a call from Mickey Mouse’ and along with the kids (6y & 3y), boarded ‘Disney Wonder’ in LA for a 7 night cruise to Mexico. It was truly a fantastic trip. Disney do it so well and it was perfect for all of the family. 


“Consider pre-booking your sightseeing before you go. you can easily waste hours of your valuable holiday time deciding & paying for tours while you are away.“
