In 2012 the team were provided with the challenging news that their quake damaged building was to be demolished within 8 weeks thus bringing to fruition Christchurch's first portable travel agency.

We have one main philosophy and it is simply 'to exceed your expectations'. We are a strong team and our committed and loyal staff results in the amazing relationships that we build every day.
