Our Team


Some of the things a travel agent can do, you can do by yourself on the internet...and yet, there's no substitute for the expertise a travel agent can bring to your business travel, your holiday planning, and no replacement for the safety net they can provide.

It's also convenient to use a travel agent: someone else works out those tricky connections, actually gets you the best priced airfares (because we see all options),  finds you a hotel, gets everything booked.

That's worth paying for."

Please phone or email to make an appointment. Consultation fee is $150.00 for your initial appointment.  The fee will be deducted from the cost of your trip should you make your travel arrangements through HCB Travel.
