    Justine Sealey’s Ramsgate Travel Service is the newest luxury brand to join the Luxury Travel Collection’s (LTC) independent member group.

    The Ramsgate NSW-based business which has been offering personalised independent retail travel services to discerning travellers for over 40 years, first opened its doors in 1983.

    Managing director, Justine Sealey, is one of the best-known faces in the industry, supported by the highly experienced team of Talia Mastronardi and Jenny Day, both of whom bring 19 years of industry expertise, according to the Luxury Travel Collection’s independent general manager, Nikki Glading.

    “Having an industry icon like Justine joining our members, and our Circle of Influence leadership group is an exceptional coup. Ramsgate Travel Service is one of the most influential cruise businesses in the nation and Justine has been warmly embraced by our existing members,” Glading said.

    Glading has confirmed that the business will commence trading in early April 2024.

    The Luxury Travel Collection’s member portfolio is by personal invitation, and based on shared values of influence, distinction, vision, dynamism and empowerment, values that are clear in Ramsgate Travel Service according to global managing director of Luxury and Independent brands, Dani Galloway.

    “The Luxury Travel Collection is the leading global house of luxury travel brands. We are continuing to move ahead with our clearly defined growth strategies to build a powerful network of luxury businesses that are distinctive and united by a common goal,” she said.

    “Our joint commitment to exceptional client service continues to be the critical success factor of our partnerships with hand-selected members. Justine and the Ramsgate Travel Service team are so well respected in the industry, and loved by clients, making the decision to open the doors to our luxury house a very simple one.”

    The decision by Ramsgate Travel Service to join the members of the Luxury Travel Collection is significant as it is the first time the business has changed its supporting network since opening its doors over 40 years ago, confirmed managing director, Sealey.

    “The team and I are so very excited and honoured to have been welcomed into the Luxury Travel Collection. Every day I am learning more about the LTC and the larger family, and I am blown away with the opportunities that lie ahead,” Sealey said.

    “I look forward to meeting with my impressive new cohort face to face and working with the influential group of owners, as part of the Circle of Influence. The decision to work with the Luxury Travel Collection has made me very enthusiastic about the future and I am totally energised by the excitement!”

    Galloway, added: “We are incredibly passionate about the strength of the partnerships we are establishing.

    “We are building an incomparable house of luxury travel products, unparalleled experiences and services for our exceptional members and we look forward to embracing Justine, Talia and Jenny as part of this wonderful group.”
