Central Travel by Kelly Cruickshank – NZ Travel Brokers

Hi, my name is Kelly!

I loved reading as a child, especially historical fiction. These books would transport me wonderous, and very real, destinations around the world that I vowed I would visit someday. As an adult, I’ve had the opportunity of seeing many of these awesome places in person – from standing at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and The Empire State Building in New York, to being speechless at Stonehenge and enthralled at Pompeii.

I have an unquenchable passion for travel, and also the adventure and stories that follow, and that is why I became a travel broker. I love helping people travel to the destinations of their dreams and making their travels as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Kelly Cruickshank – NZ Travel Broker was established in December 2015. Since then, I have assisted many families, groups, and individuals in planning and organising their travel within New Zealand and abroad.

As a well-seasoned traveller myself, I know how even the smallest negative thing can put a dampener on an entire trip. Luckily, I am a meticulous planner with a love for details, so I get things sorted before they become an issue. My more than 16 years’ experience working in retail travel agencies, airlines, and event management, have given me the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure you are getting the best deal.

Based in Cromwell in sunny Central Otago, I am centrally located to visit all my clients in Queenstown, Wanaka, Alexandra, and other surrounding towns, but I have clients all over New Zealand – from Matakana to Invercargill. And because travel doesn’t keep office hours, I am available whenever you need support 24/7.
Just give me a call or pop me an email!

Five reasons to use a travel broker

With the vast amount of information available at our fingertips, it is easy to see why many people now think that using a travel agent or brokers is an unnecessary expense. While it is true that you might be able to save a few dollars by doing everything on your own, you are missing out on professional advice and support when you need it most. Here are a few reasons you should use a travel broker the next time you book a trip:

One of the biggest benefits of using a travel broker is convenience. Planning a trip could be incredibly time-consuming and stressful, especially when organising group travel. With a professional handling all aspects of your travel, you basically just need to pack and get to the airport.

Value for money
Travel brokers have access to many promotions and offers that aren’t available to the general public. As a result, we can often provide you with a package that is less expensive than anything you could’ve booked on your own.

Personal, professional attention
As a travel broker, I pride myself on the relationships I form with my clients. I want my clients to have the best travel experience possible, and that is why I am available to them 24/7 – before, during, and after their trip. I also offer unique, personalised services to my clients who require more bespoke travel solutions.

Expert knowledge
The world wide web might be a font of knowledge, but nothing compares to someone who’s literally “been there, done that”. A travel broker is usually well-travelled and can give you insightful tips and advice on the smaller intricacies of your chosen destination.

Peace of mind
Travel is not without its perils. There are many factors that can negatively affect your long-anticipated trip, from devastating natural disasters to minor civil unrest or sudden illness. If anything goes wrong, your travel broker has the knowledge and the necessary contacts to step in and set things right on your behalf.
