Hi ya guys my name is Carole Garnham.
I’ve been in the travel biz for 30 years and have collected many high flyer awards over the years. It all began for me in London on my “Big OE” – 6 years of pure fun combined with ownership of a VW combi (Neil Neil Orange Peel) that allowed me to travel across the UK and Europe extensively !
Whilst living and working in London, I worked for Insight international and specialised in the operation of their coach touring programme throughout the UK, Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, USA and Canada.
Then I moved over to Crystal Ski Holidays and became a European/USA ski specialist, with many opportunities to ski ever year. And lastly (but certainly not least) I ended up with Kuoni, a renowned prestigious UK Tour Operator, specializing in fly/drive and wedding packages across the Caribbean and North America.
Once back in New Zealand, prior to joining The Travel Broker Team, I’ve worked in the Retail Travel Industry for two prominent travel agencies, over a period of 10 years one of which specialised in online internet consulting. I’ve travelled extensively throughout both the Northern and Southern Pacific Rim Hemispheres, including a 3 month African overland trip, Asia and India.
I have a passion for cruising which has seen me complete 20 cruises so far cruising with P&O, Carnival, Princess (I hold Princess Academy accreditation), NCL, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Cunard and Avalon.
The areas I have cruised cover :
In addition to the specials that I can get my hands on with The Travel Brokers, I have also created my own website http://www.go4it.co.nz which gives me the opportunity to offer slightly different alternative holidays that capture the many interests I have at heart; yoga, dancing, cooking, skiing and cycling getaways. 2017 took me to Vietnam, China, United Kingdom and river cruising in Europe. And most recently I’ve been back over to Singapore and Bali. And finally I have landed in South America with time spent in Argentina and Brazil
You name it I’ve been there, or if not I’m probably thinking about going there real soon. So whatever your plans or dreams are, as an avid traveller, let me create your next magical holiday or cruise experience!
