* In our opinion and experience, after significant air travel time, your first airport transfer upon arriving internationally to your destination should be a private car service to ensure the most efficient transit to your accommodation. If you do not want a private car service we recommend a taxi or Uber to your accommodation. Throughout your trip we highly recommend private car service transfers for all your for all transfers to and from the airport, however if you prefer not to utilize this service we will confirm shuttle transfers with the understanding that such transfers are shared, the drivers do not offer assistance with luggage, make multiple stops to collect other passengers and have a pick up time window rather than a specified departure time

** Important: Before committing to your trip please ensure you hold a valid passport with at least six months’ validity from the date you plan to return to the USA.

My best travel advice Don’t panic, as this will ruin your holiday. Always take out travel insurance as this will give you peace of mind if something beyond your control happens..

My best travel tip as I’m not a great sleeper on flights in general but instead of dreading all those hours on a plane, I try to think of the positives; I can have a glass (or 2) of wine, watch a good movie and let myself get tired naturally instead of trying to force myself to sleep.

My favorite destination we sell is Australia – the entire country. It’s such a beautiful country, it’s my homeland and there are so many special unique experiences. Personally, I love the Tiwi islands just off the top end of Darwin. You take a small plane out of Darwin and over the strait to do a day trip to the islands. It’s such a great experience
