Janine Mallon - Dunedin Travel Specialist And Owner-Operator

I love to travel and am particularly interested in food and wine travel. I have 20 years' retail travel experience and lots of real travel experience too! Some of the places I’ve enjoyed travelling to include Switzerland, Southern Africa, Tasmania, Hunter Valley, Tennessee, The Galapagos Islands, plus many more!

Jenny Galliven - Lincoln Senior Travel Specialist

I have over 23 years’ experience in the travel industry, and of course extensive real travel experience also. I started my love of travel with a 3-year “OE” through Europe and Southeast Asia and Europe remains my personal favourite travel destination. Most recent travel experiences include: European River Cruising, Dubai & Oman, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Tahiti. Having grown up in Melbourne and explored many parts of Australia I can also give you great inside knowledge closer to home as well.

Prachi Koli - Dunedin Senior Travel Specialist

Travel is my passion and come with 10 years of industry experience between various airlines and travel agencies. I love to create itineraries to help make my clients’ dreams into a reality. Lately, I have travelled extensively in New Zealand and am just in love with my own backyard. I have also travelled throughout India, Qatar, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

Dehini Wickramasekara - Dunedin Senior Travel Specialist

I have lived in different parts of the world all my life and it has given me wonderful opportunities to embrace cultures and people from all over the world. I was born and brought up in Sri Lanka; a tropical tourism haven in the world and I moved to Guangzhou, China for my higher studies when I was 18 years old. I lived and travelled in China for 6 years. I have travelled to China, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Oman and Mauritius as a Solo traveller, part of a tour group, a business traveller and as a travel agent. I have over 8 years of experience in designing worldwide travel, operating international corporate events and destination weddings.

Erin Graham - Dunedin Marketing Specialist And Administrative Assistant

New to the travel industry in 2020, I bring 4 years of event and social media marketing plus 12 years of administration and support work. Travel has always been an interest after visiting China when I was 16. Since then, I travelled through Europe on my 2-year OE, with my favourite location being the South of France. Recent travel experiences include: Fiji, Melbourne and New Zealand.

Sue Pearce - Dunedin Administrative Assistant

Travel became my passion after 3 years in the UK and travelling in Europe, USA plus Canada. I have been in and out of the industry over the past 20 years - for some of that time running the Travel programme at Otago Polytechnic preparing students for life in travel or tourism, as well as administration positions. The experiences that can be had from travelling continue to enthrall me and I am happy to be back helping others have that wonderful life changing experience.

Debbie Moore - Lincoln Senior Travel Specialist

I found my passion for travel in 1993 when I joined my friends working in London, it took me until 1997 to enter my exciting role as a travel agent. What an amazing choice of career. Over this time I have been fortunate to have experienced some incredible countries and to have met and made lifetime friends with the most amazing people from all corners of the world.
