WHO WE ARE
We are an independently-owned, award winning travel management company that offers professional advice, expertise and highly personalised service for savvy leisure and corporate travellers. Based in North East Victoria, Benalla Travel brings a world of travel to both city and regionally-based clients Australia-wide. With over twenty five years of professional travel industry experience, we believe that great travel should be not only incredibly inspiring but relaxing and safe. We understand that travel time is a precious commodity and we’re experts at planning complex itineraries and smoothing airline connections, saving you time and energy. We believe great travel experiences start with great hotels that have taste, soul and come in a range of prices and styles. Both corporate and leisure travellers will benefit from our long-standing industry experience and connections which means that we can find you the best fares, seats, accommodation and insurance to suit individual and company travel requirements. We also understand that travel can turn tricky so we are only a phone call away, taking care of any travel dramas 24/7.
HOW IT ALL WORKS
We hope our website inspires you by exploring the connection between travel and peoples’ passions and experiences. We are always on the hunt for the most exciting, unique and interesting travel adventures which we want to share with you. Whether its up-to-the-moment travel information on new destinations and hotel openings or the latest travel news on all the old favourites, from what’s happening in art, design and culture to what chef’s are cooking where – we love keeping up with what’s [travel] hot!
We are not another faceless travel booking engine. However we would like to offer you the option to book regional, domestic and international travel online but with the comfort of knowing you have our exceptional personalised service behind your booking. Your preferred travel experience is assured with access to over 400 airlines, 125,000 hotels and 30,000 car rental locations and all price competitive. In five simple steps you can search and choose your travel details, confirm and receive documents with the added comfort of placing your booking on hold and selecting your preferred method of payment. Not forgetting some of us are old school so our experienced travel advisors Liesl Visagie, Amelia Saunders, Tess O’Shea, Stephen Coulter and Managing Director Frank Stephens are very pleased to chat face to face about your travel requirements [remember that? It used to be known as discourse or conversation].
Benalla Travel is proud to be involved with the Magellan Travel Group Foundation, collectively making a difference with funds distributed between four projects including The Fred Hollows Foundation, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Days for Girls International and the Foundation for Australia’s Most Endangered Species Ltd.
