HOT Otago blog

Along with our colleagues in our other Otago stores, we've shared some of favourite travel experiences on our HOT Otago Blog.


Hawaii really does have something for everyone: amazing scenery and tours, water sports, relaxing on the beach, underwater activities, fabulous dining options, shopping and of course a slightly more tropical climate than Balclutha reflects Layla Carruthers on her recent journey.

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.

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.
