Team behind Addicted to Maldives launches domestic-focused DMC

The savvy folk behind Addicted to Maldives have launched a new DMC focused on domestic travel, just in time for interstate restrictions to begin easing.

Travel Addiction Group – the travel team behind Addicted to Maldives – has kickstarted a domestic venture, Addicted to Australia, focusing on unique, boutique travel experiences, with a lean towards the luxurious.

Addicted to Australia co-founder, Di Lechner, said the company will be working with a suite of leading Australian properties, including Mount Mulligan, Qualia, Capella Lodge, and Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley.

“We know that Australians have a broad taste in travel preferences so we have partnered with a variety of providers to ensure every desire is met,” she said.

“What each property has in common is that they offer true luxury in the form of one-of-a-kind experiences and offerings,” she said, adding that the new brand will cover everything from a glamping getaways to opulent high-end retreats.

The new offering aims to help curate your client’s domestic escapades so that you can give them their perfect post-lockdown getaway.

“We see ourselves as travel matchmakers and get a thrill out of identifying the perfect destination and holiday experience for every single person we chat to!

“We personally adore holidaying in our own backyard and we’ve always planned to expand our operations closer to home.

“It makes sense for us to set our sights on those destinations we know and love best – starting with our very own Australia and when the time is right, gems like New Zealand and the South Pacific.”
