I've had almost 20 years’ experience in the travel industry, always specialising in holidays to Australia and New Zealand with worldwide stopovers.
I'm a born and bred Londoner with lots of my family now living in New Zealand, hence the numerous visits! My last being for a 3 month career break. I fell in love with Australia the first time I visited in 1995 and have visited almost every year since.
Apart from travelling, I love music and going to live gigs. I enjoy the cinema and fancy restaurants, all of which keep me poor but happy!
Brighton Polytechnic...now Brighton University (that shows my age!)
I first met Haydn (MD of Travel Nation) almost 20 years ago when I started as a trainee travel consultant at Bridge The World. I stayed there for 9 years, going on to help launch the luxury Australia & New Zealand specialist, Bridge & Wickers in 2005. It's here that I learned to appreciate the joy of business class flights and luxury hotels! After 8 years, Bridge & Wickers became part of The Ultimate Travel Company and I stayed on whilst the transition was completed. When I found out that Travel Nation were looking to launch tailor-made holidays to Australia & New Zealand, I jumped at the opportunity of joining this specialist team.

Annette was brilliant !
From initial contact Annette was professional, helpful and mindful of our aspirations for the trip. She kept us informed every step of the way during the planning, ever looking for a better deal or a tweak to make the trip run smoothly whilst still giving us the elements we wanted.

Thorough, knowledgeable and efficient
Can't heap enough praise on Annette for all her help. Even with only a week and a bit before I travel she has been a great help in securing me the best flights, trains and tips on accommodation.
