Sarah Ryder- Stoke, Nelson

“I’ve spent a few years living life out of a backpack and travelling but now with a busy work and family life, I want to be assured that those precious two or three weeks I get off a year are spent exactly how I want them to be. I don’t want or need the hassle of spending endless hours trying to piece together everything that encompasses my ultimate family holiday. I don’t want to land in a foreign country with tired kids and stressful connections only to realise that I have failed to organise a vital transfer, missed a connecting boat or discover the supposed ‘idyllic bungalow’ is not like the one in the photo!  Andrew’s information and advice is up to date, relevant and tailored to your individual travelling needs. That’s crucial when you want your holiday to be like the ones in the brochures or the 5 out 5 review that you just read on Tripadvisor.”

Andrew McGlashen, Richmond, Nelson

Robyn Scott-Vincent (MNZM), Auckland CEO Attitude Pictures Ltd, AttitudeLive Ltd, and partner Attitude Pictures Australia Pty


“It is a pleasure to comment on the professionalism of Andrew Welch.
I have used his services for a number of years because of his very productive, informed, positive, efficient service and one that delivers far above expectations.
At the outset of travel negotiations, he assesses needs, makes suggestions and offers alternatives. He is conscious of the desire to reduce unnecessary costs which is greatly appreciated. When I needed to change some plans while
travelling recently his quick response and help was superb.
His professional integrity is of the highest order”

Alison McAlpine QSO JP


“For the past fourteen years Andrew has been expertly coordinating our annual, often complicated European, USA, Asian and South Pacific holidays. His destination knowledge and service are outstanding. He has always been so helpful and efficient at finding great options and great deals based on our budget, time constraints and personal likes and dislikes. It is very comforting and reassuring to know in the event of any issues that may arise whilst travelling that Andrew is only a phone call away to sort them out. He is a genuinely passionate travel professional with a great sense of humour and we look forward to planning our next trip with him soon.”

Gavin & Joy Bawtree, Mapua

“If you are not travelling with Andrew you are travelling without a safety net! I used to be a ‘do it yourself’ travel planner. Now I know better. I use Andrew to book all my holidays. Andrew’s destination knowledge, particularly of the South Pacific and South East Asia and UK / Europe is amazing, this enables him to be able to recommend various destinations that are a perfect fit for his clients and their individual budgets, without any nasty surprises. Better still, is the peace of mind of knowing I have his experience behind me to help anticipate those challenges that simply go along with travel. As a result, I enjoy travel so much more. ”

Colin Morgan, Seatoun, Wellington


“Our busy family of six needed a winter getaway. We gave Andrew what we thought was an optimistic brief: warm, relaxed, water sports for all our four children aged 4-12, exposure to island culture and luxury. He proposed eight nights at Malolo Island Resort in Fiji, it was absolutely perfect. We found Andrew’s professional and committed service outstanding. He listened to and understood our family’s requirements and when our flight was cancelled, he took over and had everything sorted and back on track within an hour. We had the best holiday ever. Andrew is now planning our next family holiday and we recommend him to all our friends.”
