Adelaide agency New Horizons Travel & Cruise has joined Travellers Choice’s national network of agencies.
Established 16 years ago in Port Adelaide, New Horizons Travel & Cruise relocated in early 2019 to Semaphore, a beachside suburb in Adelaide’s northwest.
Owner Debbie Summer, who worked for some of South Australian’s leading travel companies before acquiring the agency in 2017, said that a desire for greater support and more freedom were key factors in her decision to join Travellers Choice.
“It’s already clear from the welcome and encouragement I’ve received that Travellers Choice offers a different set-up from other groups – one in which independent agents are valued and the support offered is real, practical and personalised,” she said.
“It’s also nice to be dealing with a team – including my fabulous local business development manager AJ Moore – who has decades of experience helping independent agents.
“I’m now free to make business decisions that work best for my clients and confident that I have the backing of a group that believes in me 100 per cent.”
Travellers Choice managing director Christian Hunter said that Summer’s decision was a “powerful endorsement” of the group’s focus and commitment during COVID-19.
“It’s not surprising that in the current trading environment, travel agents are drawn to networks like ours which have stood unflinchingly behind their members,” Hunter said.
“Travellers Choice has continued to provide an unrivalled level of support to all of our members throughout the current crisis and it is pleasing to see our diligence and dedication being recognised.”
