We would like to thank you so much for helping us throughout our holiday, the planning, bookings, the requests we made while on tour, information on the tour of Europe and everything else. The whole journey was absolutely wonderful, as a family we had great fun, seen and visited places we wanted to go, a great experience. In future…when we decide to get away we will definitely contact you. Thanks again for your pleasant and professional service.

Just to let you know that we are back and had THE MOST fabulous Globus trip through Scandinavia and Russia through late May early June 2014. This was our second Globus trip and again we could not fault the trip. Fab tour leader – fab hotels. Have to confess we were a bit worried about Russia, we were so so wrong. Russia is amazing! Highly recommended.!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m home and everything went like clockwork. Wendy and I want to thank you for service above and beyond the call of duty over the weekend of 6th March when our daughter was admitted to hospital in Doha with her new baby. It was a huge relief to the family to have Wendy there with them. Changing bookings that had been in place for almost six months can’t have been easy.
Thanks again and kind regards

In our blog post about how we expected the 2017 Earlybird Business Class and Premium Economy Specials to Europe to unfold, we explained that the start of the Earlybird season generally marks a reset of discounts to the lowest levels. From there, we predicted that as the specials expired we would see a gradual increase in prices as we got closer to peak travel times. This has played out as expected with prices increasing - and there have been interesting developments along the way.
When holiday time is precious, retracing your steps to connect with a flight home can feel a waste of valuable time. For many Fine Travel clients who take advantage of Business Class Specials to fly from New Zealand to Europe to spend time with family, a return flight from Heathrow makes good sense. But often European travel becomes much more than this.
The Cunard Line trans-Atlantic cruise is one of the quintessential cruise holidays. Crossing the Atlantic from Southampton to New York (or the reverse) is a bucket list experience.
One of the most common responses travel agents hear when recommending travel insurance is: "That's ok, I have free travel insurance with my credit card". Even though the cost of the travel insurance premium may be built into the annual card fee or interest rate, the true cost of credit card travel insurance can be much higher if it doesn't cover you when it comes to claim time. Here are three of the common traps we encounter with credit card travel insurance.
Cruise holidays are now almost mainstream for New Zealand travellers, but many are looking to join a cruise for the first time. Cruises from Auckland are a popular foray into cruising as the itineraries are close to home, can reduce wasted travel time in airports and there are many exceptional itineraries.

Given the distance we have to travel from New Zealand to Europe, it is often tempting to think "I just want to get there" and as a travel agency we hear that from many of our clients. However, for 2017 travel to Europe we are seeing greater interest in stopover packages - and for good reason.
