New wholesaler launches in Australia and NZ

A new travel wholesaler has opened its doors to trade bookings from Aussie and Kiwi agents.

The brainchild of Russel Masterton from Destination International Holidays, Australia & New Zealand Travel Company sees a new direction for the full-service agency.

“The main point of difference is we are travel designers. If you can’t find it on our website, then we will build the itinerary and quote it from scratch for you,” he said.

Masterton believes all travel agencies are entitled to their slice of the growing home travel market, and he wants to help other agents benefit from the #holidayathome trend.

“Some travellers will be happy to make their own plans, but many customers won’t be confident to complete online bookings and will turn to their travel agent for expert advice and assistance, just like they would have done for overseas trips,” he said.

As the name suggests, Australia & New Zealand Travel Company specialises in both destinations and works with a number of ground operators across each.

“Australia & New Zealand Travel Company has developed tours to ensure that we offer the best value for money and travel experiences to suit the individual needs of all travellers,” Masterton said.

“Our product range is affordable and flexible, and our philosophy is that it shouldn’t cost the earth to see the world.

“We deliver exceptional attention to detail and want to make sure that your first booking with us is not your last.”
