How Fine Travel can help organise your next holiday

At Fine Travel we work with major international and New Zealand travel wholesale partners to arrange our clients’ itineraries.  Examples of the requests we commonly receive are:

  • We’re heading back to Bora Bora this year, can you please book our airfares and usual room directly with the resort.
  • This year we are going away with my parents and the kids, can you recommend somewhere in Fiji that will fit us all in, has a nice pool (and a golf course for Dad).
  • We’ve been hopeless and not planned anything and I can’t face another winter at home, any thoughts on where we can go?
  • I read your blog about a cruise holiday, is there something shorter and close to home so we can try it out.  

Through our wholesale and specialist partners we can often access special offers and bonus inclusions. When it comes to popular destinations like Fiji, Rarotonga and Hawaii, you can organise this with a quick phone call or email to your Fine Travel Consultant instead of spending hours comparing different websites and travel agencies yourself.
