Thanks for visiting our House of Travel Hunter St page! Located right in the heart of Wellington’s CBD.
Open for 29 years and with same owner operator all the way… We just had the 'Seven Year Itch' to change the name three times! Same cool, fun, friendly and professional and warm personal travel consultancy experience in the heart of the "Coolest Little Capital in the World".
Petra Otte, Owner Operator, House of Travel on Hunter Street, CBD, Wellington
I was recently asked “...travel agent? What do you do these days?” Good question! Well the marketing gurus tell us that to be successful in this technology driven world, our customers must still come first. But for us they always have, so not much new there! They also tell us we have to offer a point of difference and that’s where my team come into play.
Sure we offer the benefits of our expertise, our experience, we share some of our outstanding customer feedback and we help our customers with the things they “don’t know that they don’t know”, but when said and done, what we really do best, and always have, is build long term relationships with our amazing Wellington customers. That’s my answer to the question, and it seems to work, because our business continues to succeed and grow!
And when I read this, I can't help thinking of the old saying “while everything changes, everything stays the same”. So if you have a holiday dream and want it to be as good as it could possibly be, we'd love to help.

After living in the UK and Melbourne for 11 years I've finally returned home to help people experience what I love just as much as food - travel. I worked in the UK as a South-East Asia specialist. I absolutely adore Asia's food and friendly people!
