WHO WE ARE

ABOUT US

Hello and Welcome to Travel and Cruise HQ – thanks for visiting!

I would like to introduce myself – Shannell Christmas – the “Head Honcho” for this fantastic boutique Travel Agency.

I started this business in February 2020 as I felt there needed to be a Travel and Cruise Specialist present in Whangarei with proven customer satisfaction.

So here I am!

I am a proud member of a large 100% New Zealand owned and operated Independent buying group – Global Travel Network.

This membership gives me access to all Airlines, Cruise Lines, Tour Operators and Wholesalers who offer some amazing travel deals. Being Independent allows me to ensure I find the best fit for my customer – instead of being influenced by “preferred” operators.  

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience – nearly 20 years in the Travel Industry and I also have co-owned a previous business for 10 years. 

My services range from  booking flights, finding suitable accommodation, tours and cruises – plus all the little details in-between!

Most importantly – I am here every step of the way! If you find yourself in a “sticky situation” overseas , you just pick up the phone and its me on the end of the line. Not a call center or an answer service! Me! 

I am extremely PASSIONATE about what I do.

GREAT SERVICE is my priority and YOUR SATISFACTION is what I strive for. 

I would like to hope that you visit these HEAD QUARTERS again – especially for your next New Zealand Adventure!

I arrived in NZ from the UK in 2004. My partner and I go to the UK each year to visit friends and family. We always have a stopover on the way there and for 3-4 nights on our way back to NZ. Shannell has been our travel agent on every occasion and she has been perfect with flights, hotel recommendations, tour and pickup arrangements etc. Shannell is great at passing on her clients feedback and there has never been a single hiccup. We have recommended Shannell to all our friends.
