Dreamworld, Gold Coast Australia

"Recently my family and I booked ourselves a trip to the Gold Coast. I’d been before when I was a lot younger and before I had a family. I was looking forward to experiencing it again, only this time we are taking our kids. The Gold Coast is the perfect place for families. We set ourselves a challenge and that was, we would take in a couple of the quintessential Gold Coast attractions, but we really wanted to find family friendly options off the beaten track!" - Aaron Dyson

"Flying with Air New Zealand from Queenstown via Auckland to Los Angeles on the Dreamliner was truly amazing! With the overhead luggage storage hidden it feels a lot more spacious and with the option for a skycouch seat makes flying in economy a little more comfortable. I highly recommend choosing a ‘preferred seat’ as the extra couple of inches between the seats does make a difference."  - Amber McNulty

"I had an early to start my Journey to Bali with an early morning flight from Christchurch to Auckland and on to Denpasar with Air New Zealand. If you use the self-check-in machines at Christchurch airport you will receive both boarding passes to Auckland and for the service to Bali. I decided to splash out on a Koru membership this year (a sweet deal through my credit card) so checked out the domestic Koru Lounge in Christchurch and the international lounge in Auckland. All Air NZ lounges had Appleton’s Rum and Coke on hand to awaken the travelling spirit within."  - Robbie Bell

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 ​Travel 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
