Flights

Bring the fun back into flying!

the raw travel difference.

First class Knowledge & service

There are very real differences between airlines and the service and features they offer. 

We have first-hand experience and we look to place you on the airline that best suits your budget and desires - whether flying economy or business. 

We can put the fun and glamour back into flying and ensure you arrive well rested to start your trip.

We are also a business class flight specialist and can get you access to the best deals. 

SAVING you Time and Money

You’ll deal directly with our experienced flight specialists who have in-depth knowledge about the destinations we offer, local experiences and most importantly connections needed to reach your walk.

A cheap flight that doesn't work with your walk dates and start points can turn out to be expensive in the long run!

We offer a friendly, personalised service and relevant first-hand travel advice for your destination that you won’t find from online booking sites.

By specializing in fares to our key destinations we can stay on top of the best deals from airlines.

Unique ideas to extend your trip

We can book pretty much any add on to your trip you can think of! We'll show you the perfect city break in major stops like Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Porto, Kyoto and Tokyo. Especially when you first arrive it's good to have a few days to acclimatize and get over any jet lag before you start your walk.

We love exploring Europe’s cities and so will wow you with our insider knowledge and specialist tours from locals.

In Japan, we know the best-located accommodations to give you the most enjoyable and authentic experiences of Japan's dynamic and cultured cities.

why are we your best choice?

Something to consider...

Your journey is more complicated than just getting on a plane. Once you arrive in-country you need to know how to get to the trailhead.

That can involve more transfers by plane, train or bus, and you need to work with someone who understands the best options locally. 

That's where we come in. We take into account which flights will work in best with the local transport and accommodation options to get you there on time.

Our advice will take away the stress of your travel arrangments and save you money as well. Meaning you will arrive at your walk more relaxed and ready for your adventure! 

We can also book other arrangements including:

  • Extra accommodation
  • City breaks 
  • Car rental
  • Sightseeing tours
  • Cruises 
  • Rail passes

Thanks for your help organising a fabulous Kumano Kodo trip for us! More than I was hoping for! The extras like directing us to all the best eateries and securing fabulous accommodation such as Jam Jar have exceeded my expectations!  I really wanted a well-paced trip and am thrilled with your results!

Ros did a miraculous job of getting us on flights so we didn’t miss the start of the walk after we missed our international flights due to domestic delays Canberra to Melbourne. Also, the hotels she booked for us in Kanazawa and Kyoto were perfect - both in great locations.
