What my customers have to say

  • We had a difficult time as my mother-in-law passed away. Gavin Rasikaran did another superb job, helping us to find a quick and cost-effective flight to Europe within a few days. He clearly gave us information on a lot of choices of airlines and routes. We decided on a new carrier and we are happy we followed his advice.
  • Hello, I want to thank Gavin Rasikaran from HOT Parnell for the fantastic service provided to us during our recent emergency travel overseas. We had to reach out to him late in the evening and he got us all sorted and on a flight early next morning. He was very understanding and helpful when we had a change our itinerary a couple of times while overseas. His kindness helped us immensely during what was a very difficult time overseas. THANK YOU
