Rachel Rhind - Personal Travel Manager

Planning a holiday is fun but organising it can sometimes be time consuming and confusing. My passion is to help people have the best possible time when they are travelling. Using my years of experience to make sure everything comes together effortlessly I’ll make sure you get to include all the “must do and see” experiences.  Let me take care of all the details so all YOU  need to do is relax and enjoy yourself!

I’ve been in travel over 25 years and have travelled extensively throughout the world.  All that travel means I’ve picked up loads of great ideas, including helpful hints on everything from best travel routes, itinerary design and content, what clothes to pack and even how best to keep in touch with family or business back home.

I have loved the last 2 years in my new role as a Personal Travel Manager following 21 years leading the team at House of Travel Johnsonville.  I am well supported by Nicola Sperring who is always on hand if I’m out of the country.

I feel very blessed to  have a career that combines my own personal passion for travel with the opportunity to help make the travel dreams of my clients come true.

Let me look after your next holiday so I can apply all my experience to create one of your most memorable experiences ever!

Meet my assistant: Nic
I am originally from England, we came to New Zealand on a working holiday Visa in 1998. This was half way on our round the world trip, having travelled through South America and Mexico for 6 months, and we are still here! I worked in travel in the UK for 3 years before arriving here and Rachel employed me pretty much as soon as I got off the plane. I worked full time until the birth of my son in 2004 and have recently returned to work part time as Rachel’s assistant which I love. I am very passionate about travel and have been lucky enough to have seen quite a bit of the world. My other interests include tennis, mountain biking and spending time with my friends and family.
