Postcard Moments Travel
My love of travel has sent me around the globe to 50 countries, 160 cities, and countless awe-inspiring destinations, making my life a travelogue of life-altering adventures and mind-blowing experiences.
Ever since I can remember I’ve loved travelling and exploring. The sheer thrill of exhaling as the plane’s engines begin to roar is the stuff of dreams coming true. The excitement of meeting new people by going off-the-beaten track to discover and explore new cultures and landmarks fill me with anticipation for what lies ahead, I can never contain my emotions of joy and happiness.
And then, when I return and share stories and photos with my family and my friends, I relive the exhilaration and beauty of my experience. And all my clients tell me it’s the same for them too. My passion for travelling ignited the idea of starting my own travel company “Postcard Moments Travel”. This year marks the 10th anniversary of my having had the privilege of planning and booking incredibly amazing journeys for my very special and very satisfied clients.
Digital technologies make it all too easy – we have the world at our fingertips – you might well ask if there’s really a need for a travel agent. For me, it’s not just a case of an agent who sorts out bookings and prepackaged deals, but something far bigger, better and with so much more value for my clients. I take great pride in providing travel expertise and regard myself as a Travel Expert who brings a whole lot more to your holiday experience than merely booking a prepackaged deal at a discounted rate. I go to the ends of the earth to make sure your holiday is an experience worthy of unforgettable memories that will last you a lifetime.
I explore at great length and in-depth the hotels, villas and honeymoon destinations to tailor the holiday experience to your unique requirements and specific preferences and desires.
My full title is Concierge Travel Expert, and I gained the position from over two decades in the industry. I obtained a BCom in Travel and Tourism before I embarked on a vision, to enable the travel dreams of people who wanted to experience the most adventurous, exciting, exhilarating, remarkable and memorable holidays. I know that I am able to make all your travel dreams come true if you give me the opportunity to prove it to you!
I love sharing my knowledge and experience so starting a travel company was the logical extension of my BCom that would have me earning my living from doing what I love. Typically the majority of people don’t really have a clear understanding of the industry because of the myths, misconceptions and bad information about travel, costs and the whole business of the travel industry.
The biggest misconception in travel is the costs people associate with travel services, and logically one has to charge a fee for services if you want to stay in business, but our services are, as a general rule, based on commission. Up to 90 per cent of our services are commission-based, and that’s the industry standard.
Online booking might do away with the gratuity service charge, but bear in mind you pay for what you get, and a cheap holiday mistake is expensive when all the chips are down. You’ve paid the rate and had a horrible experience. It’s a double whammy.
The value that I provide is greater than the sum total of the service that you pay for as my client. I go the extra mile and figure out the obstructions, obstacles and all those itsy bitsy little things that can turn a dream holiday into a nightmare experience nobody wants to repeat. When you’re next in dream mode and looking about for a desired destination be sure to contact me for a travel experience worth writing about!
