About me

Looking for a holiday – or an unforgettable travel experience?

Hi, my name is Karryn and with over 20 years travel industry experience, constant training and a lifetime love of travel, I offer a personal and professional travel service to all my clients.  Creating awesome holiday experiences are my passion along with saving you money, time and stress. Getting you the best deals and tailormaking your travel is my specialty.

As a Personal Travel Manager I have the freedom to plan your holidays when and where it suits you. If you are on the NSW Mid North Coast, Hunter or Central Coast I am happy to personally meet with you and talk about your plans for your upcoming holiday. Otherwise I am happy to talk with you via phone, email or Skype/Zoom.

I love all types of cruising and love the concept of unpack once and start your holiday the moment you get onboard. If cruising is not your “thing” and you want to experience other methods of travel I can assist you with any type of holiday whether it be flying, rail journeys, selfdrive holidays or a great package deal.

I use my 20+ years of experience and expertise, including my Masters in Cruising, and my New Zealand and Golf Touring specialisations, to create the ideal itinerary to suit you.

I have recently expanded my business to include “Cruise Adventures”. Working in conjunction with my TravelManagers business, I specialise in Cruise Packages for couples, families or groups, where your cruise is not just a cruise it’s an adventure!

Specialties: I do all I can to give the most sincere and informed advice possible. After their holidays, clients give me suggestions and I continuously research and keep up to date with the latest travel guides. I frequently go on educationals – from New Zealand to Vietnam to Galapagos Islands to Canada aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and cruises around the world. I have done many of the itineraries I set out for others. I aim to simplify things and be a one-stop shop. My clients seem to appreciate it, as many have been with me for over a decade.

I am always there for my clients whilst they are travelling in case of emergencies. I remember the time I had clients travelling through the US and heading to Europe. One of the couple fell ill with a Lung Virus in the US and was admitted to hospital. They contacted me and I organised for their Insurance company to look after them so they had no out of pocket expenses whilst he was in hospital. I then cancelled the rest of their trip and arranged for them to fly home three weeks later when he was well enough to travel. On their return I assisted them with their Travel Insurance claim so they received full payment back for the parts of the holiday they missed out on. They have just come back from discovering Europe on another trip.
