We understand that your travel experience begins as you board your departing flight. Aspire partners with Qantas, Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, United, Air Pacific and Air Tahiti Nui and domestically within Australia & New Zealand we can introduce you to the great value offered by Virgin Blue & Jetstar. We offer outstanding coach, premium economy, business and first class airfares. The airlines that cross the Pacific are leading the way in aviation - Qantas flies A380s & Air New Zealand offers the "skycouch", perfect for those looking for more room without wanting premium pricing - Our travel experts will assist you in selecting the appropriate airline which best suits your routing, personal taste and budget. We are conscious that many travelers redeem mileage rewards for their flights and regularly incorporate such flights into our tailor made itineraries.
On arrival in your destination we recommend airport transfers, we use quality car service companies who will be ready to meet you with a board and a smile or great value shuttle transfers to your hotel.
When traveling around Australia it is important to keep in mind you are traveling a country the same size as the USA, flying is often the best way to go however for those with more time or a passion for the rails we highly recommend taking an iconic rail journey. In both Australia & New Zealand the open road beckons and self drive is a fantastic option to take in these amazing landscapes - we drive on the left but don’t let this put you off, we are more likely to recommend car rental for the parts of your trip in less populated areas.
Our itineraries include accommodations and tours to suit all tastes and budgets; we offer many different styles from luxury resorts to B&B's. Our Brochure is a great starting point to review our collection of hotels, lodges, apartments, Island resorts & boutique properties.
We believe where you stay is part of your overall experience. Aussies, kiwis & Fijians are some of the friendliest peoples on the planet and we want you to meet them! We recommend many locally owned & operated properties that showcase the local surroundings as well as trusted brand hotels in our portfolio. When considering accommodations for your trip talk to your Aspire consultant about including an Island resort in Australia, a working farm/cattle station experience, a unique B&B or luxury lodge in New Zealand to name a few of the options available. We always want to know if your trip is for a special occasion, bona fide honeymooners and special birthdays/anniversaries benefit from added bonuses such as room upgrades or wine in your room on arrival.
Like accommodation, touring is a personal choice and we have different styles to match your preferences. From larger coaches offering tour highlights at excellent value to more specialized smaller group tours with expert guides. In a small group tour you can really immerse yourself in the destination and visit off the beaten track parts of even the most visited sites. The number one comment we receive from our clients on their return from a trip is how a guide made all the difference to their day tour and how they walked away with life long memories.
Cruising continues to grow in popularity, we can assist in selecting a complete cruise of the South Pacific or with your pre/post cruising ground arrangements. Our portfolio of small ship expedition style cruising can introduce you to parts of Australia that can only be accessed by sea such as the rugged Kimberley or experience the Great Barrier Reef, circumnavigate New Zealand or visit isolated Islands of the Pacific by tall ship sailing.
Our affiliate offices on the ground in Sydney, Auckland and South Pacific Islands are available 24/7 for assistance on your trip so when dealing with time differences between the USA and Down Under you never have to wait to contact a travel expert with any questions or concerns.
