Tony Boomer on a cruise, yeah right! Constant exposure to, quite frankly, astounding ships visiting Dunedin prompted him to take the plunge and head off to Singapore on Air New Zealand and Princess Cruises to take in Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Phuket aboard the Sapphire Princess.

St Marks Square Venice
Italy for most is a dream destination, so when Antony Boomer was offered the chance to spend 10 days here as part of a Trafalgar guided holiday he jumped at the chance without actually knowing where exactly he was going... it was Italy, it'll be good!

I have been wanting to take my boys somewhere extraordinary for ages. We have previously traveled, as a family, well worn routes through North America and Australia. Now my wife and I thought it was time to challenge everything they thought they knew about the world. We decided on Vietnam in the hope it would provide a physical, emotional and sensory experience the boys would never forget.

I've recently moved down to Oamaru from Auckland, and I am wanting to bring my experience to ensure you get the holiday of your dreams! I'm a travel nut who has a bad habit of needing extra luggage whenever I travel!

Travel has been a huge part of my life since before I can remember, with lots of family holiday's to the UK via many different places on the way. My favourite destinations include Thailand and Rarotonga.

  • Hi Tracy. Just on behalf of myself and the girls from Oamaru, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to you and the HOT team for organising such a wonderful trip to the Netball World Cup in Sydney. Had an absolutely fantastic time made all the better by the outstanding organisation of the House of Travel team. The information flow and organisation, ensured we were kept informed on what was happening, and that we were booked in time for various things was tremendous. Once again thanks for making this trip a memorable one, even though the girls didn’t quite get across the line, they gave it their all and very nearly came away with the cup. Honoured to have been there to witness an amazing event. Kind regards, Pauline"

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.
